"I've been staying patient for a few months now, but it’s time to get back on the grind. I’ve found the team I want to commit to and I’m hoping for a long, lasting and successful journey with Heroic! I’m really honored and thankful that Heroic, such a big and powerful organization has decided to take me under their wings. I’m looking forward to becoming a hero!"
"In our pursuit of a new awp’er, our thoughts quickly fell on Niels, as we have experienced playing with him before, as he is a player that not only possesses a great sniper but overall is a complete player in other aspects of the game as well. Looking forward to working with him and welcome him to the heroic family!"
