Heroic unveil LOMME as coach
LOMME, who burst onto the Counter-Strike scene in 2012 on 1.6 team Anexis, played for a number of high-profile Danish teams during the early years of CS:GO, including Reason, with whom he attended the first two Majors, DreamHack Winter 2013 and EMS One Katowice 2014.
He turned to coaching in 2016 with Team X, who would form Heroic, even though he was never officially announced as part of the squad. He parted ways with the team after less than two months in the job and went on to represent teams like North Academy, Tricked and ex-Fragsters.
"I’m excited to get this chance to prove my worth, this time in another role," he told Heroic's website.
"It means a lot to me to be able to stay in this game and work with what I love. It’s going to be a blast working with the guys and I’m going to work hard to build upon what the guys already have and bring them to an even higher level in 2020."
Heroic, who reached their highest-ever ranking position of 13th last month, are one of the first five teams confirmed for the European Champions Cup, a $60,000 competition kicking off in September. They will also compete in ESL Pro League Season 10 Europe, which is scheduled to start on October 8.
