Heroic announce mertz signing

North backup player Daniel "⁠mertz⁠" Mertz has joined Heroic on a permanent basis, RFRSH Entertainment has announced.

The 19-year-old has agreed a permanent move to Heroic after spending almost two months with the team on loan from North as part of a deal that saw Nikolaj "⁠niko⁠" Kristensen move in the opposite direction, also on a temporary basis.

During his loan stint, Heroic, attended DreamHack Masters Stockholm and DreamHack Open Montreal, raising eyebrows at the Swedish event as they reached the quarter-finals after surviving a group that included FaZe, OpTic and fnatic.

mertz turns Heroic loan spell into a permanent move

The Danish team then cut a frustrating figure in Montreal as they were eliminated after just two matches, but mertz still had positives to take from that event as he averaged a 1.20 rating.

mertz will make his first official appearance as a permanent Heroic player this Friday as the team will compete at the Games Clash Masters, in Poland, where $90,000 will be on offer. The Danish side have been drawn in Group A, along with Kinguin, Sprout and PACT.

With these changes, Heroic have:

Sweden Andreas "⁠MODDII⁠" Fridh
Sweden Adam "⁠friberg⁠" Friberg
Denmark Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen
Denmark Asger "⁠AcilioN⁠" Larsen
Denmark Daniel "⁠mertz⁠" Mertz

Finland Niko "⁠naSu⁠" Kovanen (coach)
