Helvijs "broky" Saukants is a Latvian CS:GO player who has been signed to FaZe Clan since the end of 2019. The currently 19-year-old has been playing in tournaments since 2017 and is one of the biggest talents in the CS:GO scene right now. For around 1 ½ years, Helvijs has already been playing at the top of the world and is now one of the constant performers at FaZe .
At the end of 2019, broky participated in his first S-Tier events and his total prize money is estimated at around 170,000 USD. However, the Latvian still has to wait for his first success at a very big tournament so far.
On his Twitter account, broky regularly posts updates on relevant CS:GO topics, such as game results or highlight videos. On his Instagram profile, the young top player likes to be a bit more private, but doesn't really post regularly.
Broky uploads relatively irregularly on his Youtube channel, but published a new video at the beginning of 2021. On his Twitch channel with around 25,000 followers, the 19-year-old streams from time to time.
broky - Career
Broky started his team career in 2017 with Domigais, with whom he participated in a qualifying tournament. For the first time Helvijs regularly attended C-tier tournaments at the end of 2018 together with Team Wolsong. The Latvian organization was the start of his professional career.
At the beginning of 2019 broky then moved to team Epsilon Esports, where he was signed together with k1to and SPELLAN on 05/02. In the upcoming year, Helvijs played in his first A-tier tournaments and was able to record some minor successes. However, the big breakthrough happened at the end of 2019 and after the transfer to FaZe Clan .
The international traditional organization was looking for a new main-AWP after the departure of GuardiaN. The young Latvian was considered one of the biggest talents in the scene and attracted attention in Tier-2 tournaments as well as Pugs. Signed up on 09/26/2019, Helvijs has since played in 16 S-Tier events and alongside some of the biggest personalities in Counter-Strike history.
broky - Achievements
Broky's first S-Tier tournament was the participation in ESL One: New York, which took place shortly after he joined FaZe
. Together with his team he achieved a 7-8th place and thus a rather disappointing result. So far, broky has not played in a major tournament and will not get a chance to do so until the end of 2021 at the earliest.
The biggest success of his career so far, in terms of prize money, was a win at the BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen 2019, but a victory in an S-tier event is yet to come. At the end of 2020, he and his team won the IEM New York. Helvijs has a great career ahead of him.
