Many Counter-Strike: Global Offensive fans may have heard the latest FaZe Clan transfer rumors, which hint at a rather unknown player potentially joining the squad, but who exactly is Helvijs ‘broky’ Saukants? 

On September 5, fans noted that FaZe were practicing without Ladislav ‘GuardiaN’ Kovács and Filip ‘NEO’ Kubski, with broky and an unknown player going by the name of ‘dickb0mb’ taking their place.

The identity of dickb0mb is still unknown, however, fans speculate that it could be Marcelo ‘Coldzera’ David, who was previously linked with the organization. Meanwhile, it is confirmed broky was playing with FaZe, but the player remains relatively unknown.

Epsilon esportsBroky impressed during his time at Epsilon.

Who is Broky?

Broky is new to the competitive CS:GO scene, and it is likely many people haven’t heard of him. He is an 18-year-old who first appeared in the competitive scene in mid-2018, largely playing in regional events and the Faceit Pro League.

The young Latvian quickly outgrew the Baltic scene and was signed by Epsilon Esports in February 2019 and continued to impress from there.

Only two months after joining he helped his team to win the ESEA Season 30 Premier Division, and just two weeks later played a key role in their fourth-place finish at Charleroi Esports 2019, which included an impressive victory over G2.

In July the team parted ways with Epsilon and have been looking for an organization to represent ever since. Broky’s free agency was announced just days after his practice with FaZe, leading fans to believe the player is likely to join the international squad.

Helvijs is lauded as one of the brightest young stars in Counter-Strike and is living up to the hype with increasingly impressive performances against strong opponents. However, he has yet to be truly tested by the best of Counter-Strike, so if he does join FaZe, it will be interesting to see how well he can compete.

How arT’s aggression is leading FURIA’s CSGO charge to site

Andrei ‘arT’ Piovezan has led FURIA to the top of NA Counter-Strike thanks not only to his calling but also his ultra-aggressive playstyle. 

Dexerto explores the Brazilian’s signature aggression and how it has defined him as the most offensive player in CSGO history. 

His playstyle slowly leaked into his strategies, making FURIA one of the most aggressive teams in the world: allowing them to become the most successful T-side team over the last few months. 

This was clear during ESL Pro League 11 NA, where arT’s aggressive pushes and misdirection on Inferno led the team to a dominant win against the best NA had to offer. All this while delivering some of the most entertaining CS ever. 

The importance of his dual-role as a IGL and Entry-Fragger is not lost, allowing him to quickly adapt his calling after going first into bombsites. 

ArT has led FURIA to become true contenders on the world stage but now the difficult part begins: keeping ahead of the curve and keep the elements of surprise on his side.
