Heroic will be using Patrick "es3tag" Hansen instead of Jakob "JUGi" Hansen at the upcoming Copenhagen Games, HLTV.org has learned.
From March 30-31, Patrick "es3tag" Hansen will once again step in for Heroic at Copenhagen Games, as Jakob "JUGi" Hansen is still handling personal issues, which caused him to take a step back in early March.
Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer's team will learn their fate once the BYOC qualifier comes to a close, as they are one of the four teams directly invited to the main tournament, which will begin with two round-robin groups of four.
es3tag has been standing in for JUGi for the past three weeks in various online competitions, such as ECS Season 5 Europe Challenger Cup, ESL Pro League Season 7, and the DreamHack Masters Marseille closed qualifier.
In that time, Heroic have had mixed results. The Danish squad failed to qualify for ECS Season 5 and DreamHack Masters Marseille following losses to GODSENT and Valiance, respectively, and are currently sitting at 7th place in ESL Pro League with 19 points from 16 matches.
