Christophe "SIXER" Xia will temporarily reunite with his former LDLC teammates later this month during the Global Esports Tour in Dubai.
Falcons have announced that French veteran and former Envy and LDLC player SIXER will stand in for the team in the upcoming Global Esports Tour event in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, later this month, where Falcons are 20/1 to win.
The 31-year old will take the place of Jordan "Python" Munck-Foehrle, who has to sit out the $250,000 event because of issues concerning his passport.
Currently on a stand-in stint with Ambush, SIXER has been team-less since the beginning of the year, when LDLC decided to part ways with their entire roster and head in a new direction.
That also saw the organization sign several internationally untested players.
He will temporarily rejoin three of his former teammates from that lineup in Bryan "Maka" Canda, Ali "hAdji" Hainouss, and Nicolas "Keoz" Dgus as well as coach Steeve "Ozstrik3r" Flavvigni at the Dubai tournament, which is set to kick off on Thursday, 9th June.
Coming in as one of the seven directly invited teams, Falcons are set to face off against MOUZ in the opening round of the single-elimination bracket, in the second game of the first play day scheduled for 05:30 ET.
Falcons roster at the Global Esports Tour Dubai will look as follows:
Bryan "Maka" Canda
Ali "hAdji" Hainouss
Nicolas "Keoz" Dgus
Jayson "Kyojin" Nguyen Van
Christophe "SIXER" Xia (stand-in)
Steeve "Ozstrik3r" Flavigni (coach)
