friberg joins Heroic's Pro League roster

MIRAA
April 24th, 2018 19:36

Former Ninjas in Pyjamas and OpTic member Adam "friberg" Friberg has been added to Heroic's ESL Pro League roster.

The Swedish player will fill in for the team in their last two games in the competition, helping to fill the void left by the departures of Jakob "JUGi" Hansen and Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer to OpTic.

Adam "friberg" Friberg has been out of action since February, when he parted ways with OpTic after an indifferent six-month period in which he had been the in-game leader of a team featuring players from five different countries. In a Twitlonger post, the ESL One Cologne 2014 champion confirmed that he was open to offers, and admitted the possibility of leading a team once again.

friberg will play for Heroic against AGO

Following the double victory over Envy, Heroic are now eighth in the Pro League table, just one point shy of the season finals' qualification zone. In their final regular season games, scheduled for Thursday, the team will face 13th-placed side AGO.

Heroic will field the following roster against AGO:

Sweden Andreas "MODDII" Fridh
Norway Ruben "RUBINO" Villarroel
Denmark Patrick "es3tag" Hansen
Denmark Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen
Sweden Adam "friberg" Friberg (stand-in)

That is a pretty ignorant statement since friberg has actually been to 5 major finals and many more tournament finals and won quite a few of them. In the major that NIP won, friberg was the finals MVP.
2018-04-24 20:31
i think we just got baited or his stupidity is on another level

Oh so he chokes harder than FaZe, like really out of 5 finals he could only win 1? LMFAO not even FaZe and ChoKo can choke that bad
2018-04-24 20:58
He didn't choke, his team did. There is a difference. For whatever reason, friberg has always shined in the biggest of games. That is the opposite of FAZE and that was the point the original guy was trying to make.

I dont have to argue against you that Friberg did or did not choke thats irrelevant. The relevant thing is you're a idiot who stated that Friberg couldn't got to any finals. "Yeah, that's because this obese fuck can't get to any"

2018-04-24 20:56
Nice! Hope Friberg gets well integrated. Dealing with the departure of snappi and JUGi will be tough, but, alright. es3tag coming back is pretty good. thank mr. friberg

Honestly, feels like every ones a winner here. Sure Heroic lose Jugi, but he clearly wasnt happy there since he wasnt playing. Before the optic move i was sure he had some sick family member, but now I doubt his absence came down to anything else than wanting to move on. Snappi was a great loss for sure, but es3tag has proven himself in jugi's absence, and friberg is a major winner. I cant wait for see what optic can do, and I really think this could work out for the nordic lineup aswell! :)
2018-04-25 07:40
I don't believe in this team without Snappi. Sorry.
