Having joined Team BDS last September, Arnaud "BiOs" Billaudel announced on Aug. 9 that he is looking for a new team with his contract coming to an end "soon". 

After previously having a successful Xbox career as a player, BiOs notably coached Team Vitality in 2018, Supremacy in 2019, PENTA in 2020, and Acend in 2021 before joining BDS. 

After already attending three Major events in a row, BDS were then assisted to a fourth by BiOs as they won both Stage 3 of the EUL as well as the EUL Finals. However, the Frenchmen fell in the quarter-finals at the Sweden Major to the eventual victors, FaZe Clan. 

Moving into 2022, BiOs was forced to stand in as a player at the 2022 Six Invitational to replace Adrien "RaFaLe" Rutik, as BDS went out in join-last place. They then ended the Charlotte Major with another quarter-finals finish.

Most recently, BDS won the big-money Gamers8 tournament but failed to qualify for the Berlin Major. They had finished in sixth place in the European League, which marked a major drop in results compared to what many expect from them.

BiOs now joins Thomas "Shas" Lee and William "Titan" Davie as the third European coach looking for a new home before Stage 3 starts in September.
