The team is competing in the fourth season of ESL Pro League and will attend Power-LAN taking place in Denmark. They also qualified for DreamHack ZOWIE Open Bucharest and StarLadder i-League Season 2 Finals.
Heroic is formed
The players released a statement in which they said they believe they have found the correct mix of five players that could carry their ambition.
The full statement can be found below:
Today we are proud to announce the creation of our very own brand, Heroic.
Since the core of our team’s departure from SK, we have been focused on finding the correct mix of five players, that could carry our ambition to prove ourselves among the worlds best. Now, we believe we have finally found exactly that and our results are a clear indication that we are on the right path.
With the lineup settled and proven, the next step is moving on from our temporary name – Team X. We have all spent multiple years in the Counter-Strike game, across many teams and brands and we are extremely excited to finally be able to call ourselves co-owners of Heroic. We believe that the time has never been more right to take this step and we have never been more motivated to make this a global esports success. We will soon be announcing the partners who have helped make Heroic a reality.
We hope that all our fans will follow us on this journey and that we will welcome many new ones on board over the coming months. You can catch us playing live this weekend from the POWERLan in Denmark, where you will see the Heroic logo on our jerseys for the very first time.
