RUBINO sidelined again; AcilioN to stand in for Heroic
Ruben "RUBINO" Villarroel's eye infection has relapsed, meaning the 24-year-old Norwegian will have to sit out the closed qualifiers for DreamHack Masters and the FACEIT Europe Minor.
In the beginning of May, RUBINO contracted an eye infection, forcing him to sit out the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals in Dallas and DreamHack Open Austin, where Heroic fielded Jorgen "cromen" Robertsen instead.
RUBINO came back to play at the CS:GO Asia Championships, where Heroic made it to the quarter finals. Unfortunately, the Norwegian's infection has flared up again, causing him to take another break to 'recover and undergo further examination'.
Standing in for Heroic in the upcoming qualifiers for DreamHack Masters Stockholm and the Europe Minor in London will be Asger "AcilioN" Larsen, who recently announced his free agency after being benched in his former team, Imperial.
The 21-year-old Dane's first action with Heroic will be this week as they attempt to qualify for DreamHack Masters in Stockholm.
Heroic's line up for the foreseeable future is as follows:
