trace announces return to activity
Martin "trace" Heldt has announced he will start playing again, going so far as to declare he will not quit until he can compete.
The Danish player, who shone brightest between 2009 and 2011 in MTW, has announced that he will start playing again and will not stop until he can play competitively. Hanging his mouse in 2013 after struggling in CS:GO with fnatic, and after having attempted a comeback in late 2015 to no avail, Martin "trace" Heldt will give making it in CS:GO another try.
The last time there was a buzz around trace was in December of 2015, when he and his former teammates from 1.6 reunited under the MTW banner. That team, however, didn't last over a month, as soon after the team formed Danny "zonic" Sørensen took a coaching position with the core of players which became the Astralis we know today, where he still plies his trade. Without making an appearance, that MTW team faded away.
The time is now. I'll start playing as much as I can. It'll take time, but I will do my best and not quit till i can compete.— Martin Heldt (@mtwtrace) August 15, 2017
Whether trace will be able to replicate his 1.6 success remains to be seen, as player comebacks have been hit or miss, but a thriving local scene like the one in Denmark could help facilitate his homecoming.
