valde released by Heroic

Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså has announced on Twitter that he is no longer contracted to Heroic.

The 22-year-old's future has been up in the air since he expressed uncertainty about his future on Heroic, who decided to bench the player ahead of the closed qualifier for ESL One Cologne.

At the time, Heroic parent company RFRSH Entertainment revealed that it would help Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså to find a new team while he remained under a contract with the organisation, but, according to a tweet from the player, he is now free to join another team.

valde is open to offers after leaving Heroic

Formerly of Copenhagen Wolves, valde is recognised as one of the most promising young talents in the Nordic region. During his time with Heroic, he helped the Danish team to win the International Gaming League 2016 Finals and reach the semi-finals at IEM Katowice.

im not a fan of mouse and i dont watch much of their games but what i saw on the major and cologne denis was the guy who did a good job most of the time
2017-07-20 22:30
I agree with you it's kind of a meme at this point tbh. Because when first NiKo joined mouz back then they still had the German trio of nex spiidi and denis, NiKo dropped like 30-35 frags every game but the Germans always had below 1 ratings and were really horrible. So nex got kicked and then spiidi got benched, even at some point chrisj was benced. In the end denis is the only one from that trio so that's why he's still called a bot etc. while he's actually playing pretty decent now.

True, but ChrisJ can step up if someone else takes the lead, or Chris just gets more comfortable with the igl'ing.

2017-07-18 22:03
Why?
2017-07-18 20:34
I'm guessing they offered him a new contract but he declined in hopes to find a better team. He's a top tier talent so I'm assuming a top team will pick him up. We'll see.

Actually you have something going here m8 ... to be confirmed after the players break!! there could be changes on the nV or G2 teams following the trades as aizy´s spot could be challenged as well.

people has an eye on latest Apex performances ... as he would have a spot on nV if released by g2
2017-07-18 20:52
There's no way G2 is gonna have a roster change. They all signed a 4 year contract. Highly doubt that and as for Apex, we all know he's inconsistent since he's a pure entry fragger. So yeah...

Gossip talk homie, I´m not giving any certainties ... But keep an eye out since contracts can be bought out and players can be moved to back-up positions we are talking about k1o being moved to the frenchies and not valde (valde to Faze in this case)

2017-07-19 06:49
The players you mention, aren't really players that would get into a top EU team anyway. So what would you expect of them? Atleast Valde has potential to become better. Gob b and pimp, are prime examples of players that didn't improve for loooong periods of time.
2017-07-19 15:45

released just means he's free of contractual obligations. Heroic probably understand his desire to leave, and like the guy so want the best for him rather than try to cling to a player who doesn't have their heart in it for their current team. But yeah, Valde is wanted by several teams methinks

Fair enuf, Would be exciting to see him in North.
2017-07-18 21:15
RFRSH just bought into Astralis (owns 55% now) and Heroic (80%). I suspect it's because of the acquisition of Heroic, that they let him leave, otherwise he'd probably be eligible for some kind of compensation or whatever. It was the easiest thing for both parties, to just release him. Also by doing that, RFRSH just set back danish CS years.

2017-07-18 20:43
Mouz, faze or north... Just my guess but there are other options like maybe liquid, optic or even c9. We will see :)
2017-07-18 20:47
i don't think any of those eu teams will pick him up bc they are somewhat decent atm but as for NA c9 or optic would be interested bc shroud is ass and optic needs a 5th.
2017-07-18 20:50
Actually north is nowhere near their hype... Mouz looks solid (but who knows what will happen if they finish in group stage) and faze... Oh well... Yes, its just 1 tournament but who knows how do they feel right now. I dont think that its THAT impossible...
2017-07-18 20:54
N0thing is ass and dies far too much, replace him over shroud and get a real IGL.
2017-07-18 21:18
valde should go join Optic bc they have the firepower that can crush any top team including SK just need a bit more tactics.

2017-07-18 22:26
Well, now they released him and got NOTHING, it might be well they didn't even ask that much but player also must want to join the team, maybe only some shit na org made offer. I guess it could be though he had plan to join for north but it never came through xd...
