RUBINO set to join Heroic - Report
Former dignitas and North member Ruben "RUBINO" Villarroel will join Heroic after cs_summit 2, according to a report from Flickshot.fr.
The Norwegian player will reportedly step into the shoes of Patrick "es3tag" Hansen, who will be moved to bench upon returning from Los Angeles, eight months after being recruited from Tricked in the wake of Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså's exit to North.
Ruben "RUBINO" Villarroel's future has been up in the air since January, when he was released from his contract with dignitas after a frustrating second spell with the US-based organisation.
He is no stranger to playing for a Danish side, having competed under Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen between 2015 and 2017 on dignitas and North. During this period, the team most notably won EPICENTER 2016 after beating Virtus.pro in the final.
In December, he played for Astralis as a stand-in at the ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals and at the ECS Season 4 Finals, helping the team to reach the semi-finals at the latter event with a 1.24 average rating.
Heroic's roster will look as follows after cs_summit 2:
Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu (coach)
Patrick "es3tag" Hansen (backup)
