peacemaker steps down from Heroic; MODDII becomes player-coach

Heroic have announced that they have terminated Luis "peacemaker" Tadeau's contract by mutual consent, with Andreas "MODDII" Fridh taking over as coach.

According to RFRSH Entertainment Director Kasper Hvidt, Andreas "⁠MODDII⁠" Fridh will don a player-coach role on an interim basis, with the team's full lineup due to be announced "in the near future".

Luis "⁠peacemaker⁠" Tadeu had been part of Heroic's set-up since November, when he joined the Danish organisation from TyLoo. He had a contract with Heroic until December after signing a one-year deal at the end of 2017.

peacemaker steps down due to health issues

During his time with Heroic, the Brazilian coach most notably led the team to a fourth-place finish at cs_summit 2 and to a final appearance at Copenhagen Games. 

In a statement, peacemaker revealed that he is currently battling with health issues, which, combined with Heroic's plans to restructure the team, made the two parties decide to go separate ways.

"I have had some health issues in the last three weeks, it is nothing serious but it will definitely require rest, time off and focus," he wrote.

"Heroic will not only participate in several tournaments in the near future, but they are also rebuilding their roster and creating a new profile.

"RFRSH has given me full support in this period, but both parties felt that this was the best decision to make.

"If everything goes as planned, I hope to be coaching a new team in the near future." 

The announcement comes at a difficult time for Heroic, who recently lost in-game leader Marco "⁠Snappi⁠" Pfeiffer and AWPer Jakob "⁠JUGi⁠" Hansen to OpTic.

The Danish team fielded former NiP member Adam "⁠friberg⁠" Friberg in their final ESL Pro League matches, finishing outside of the offline finals qualification places after being involved in a two-way tie with seventh-placed side HellRaisers.

Heroic now have:

Norway Ruben "⁠RUBINO⁠" Villarroel
Denmark Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen
Denmark Nikolaj "⁠niko⁠" Kristensen
Sweden Andreas "⁠MODDII⁠" Fridh (player-coach)

Heaton was a pig?
2018-05-01 18:29
back in* Autocorrect :)
2018-05-01 19:27
Kinda different because Heaton could actually coached them, dead isnt really important in that area for SK
2018-05-02 02:29
Yea I know but that’s the closest comparison I could come up with and they are Managers and not coaches. And heaton didn’t really coach he just stood behind them and screamed about how good they were haha :) Search on YouTube for “Heaton goes Scream) Classic Swedish vid :3
2018-05-02 06:20
I arent think that dead calls. Only fallen and right now its not working anymore I mean a lot of group stages exit. What a shame for SK
2018-05-01 17:41
"I have had some health issues in the last three weeks" "Heroic ... are also rebuilding their roster and creating a new profile." "RFRSH has given me full support in this period, but both parties felt that this was the best decision to make." So is that because of health issues or they finally realised he is paycheck stealer? What a bunch of bullshit even in this statement.
2018-05-01 11:05
totally, it's ambivalent as fuck. nothing serious but I need to step down. full support but I had to go...no fucking way that makes any sense for an outsider. either dishonest or weird anyway.
