niko to step in for OpTic in StarSeries qualifier
In the tournament, niko will reunite with his former Heroic teammates Jakob "JUGi" Hansen and Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer, who left the team in April to further their careers in the North American organisation.
The Danish team recently qualified for their first Major after finishing in second place at the Europe Minor, where they beat NiP and ENCE in the playoffs before losing to Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson's side in the battle for the title.
OpTic have been seeded into the qualifier's second playoff round, in which they will take on the winner of the match between forZe and EURONICS. The tournament winner will earn a spot at the StarSeries, where $300,000 will be on the line.
