Team Falcons Signs Dupreeh

Team Falcons Signs Dupreeh

After getting benched by Team Vitality in June 2023 and then parting ways with the organization in October, Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen’s CS2 career became very chaotic.

The player initially joined HEROIC and spent two months playing for them. Then he moved to Preasy Esport and tried to succeed with this little-known esports organization.

Unfortunately, he did not achieve his ambition and was now in a bad position. For a former Major champion, it’s never fun to be part of a project that doesn’t have the potential to thrive, at least not in the short term.

Preasy is currently ranked 39th globally and could certainly achieve important results in B-tier and maybe even some A-tier competitions. But they are not an S-tier team for now.

Given this fact and dupreeh’s expectations, it was only a matter of time before left Preasy and joined a different team. And the good news was announced right on his birthday.

Joining Team Falcons

Team Falcons were in need of a 5th player. Dupreeh, Danny “zonic” Sorensen, and Emil “Magisk” Reif had already worked together on two different projects, Astralis and Team Vitality, and succeeded at the highest level, winning CS2 Majors. So why not a third?

This will undoubtedly be a great move for dupreeh and also an excellent signing for zonic’s team. When he became the coach of Team Falcons he did it with the clear intention of winning a Major or at least some S-tier trophies.

We know the org is capable of such results because they’ve already become the number-one team in Dota 2, less than six months after creating their new roster.

In the qualifiers for PGL Major Copenhagen, Team Falcons were in poor shape and did not manage to finish in the top eight. Then, at BLAST Premier: Spring Showdown, they failed again, finishing just 9th – 16th after losing the opening match.

Now they’re training hard again, trying to fix the mistakes in their strategy and achieve a high level of fluency that will allow them to perform better at the next big tournament, ESL Pro League S19, which is scheduled to start on April 23.

Despite his “old” age (31), dupreeh still has a lot to offer and his decision to change teams again indicates that he’s hungry for more titles before he retires. Under zonic’s leadership, he could easily taste success again, especially now that the Falcons roster has superstars like Alvaro “SunPayus” Garcia.
