friberg leaves Heroic

Heroic have announced that Adam "⁠friberg⁠" Friberg is no longer part of their Counter-Strike squad.

The Swedish player becomes a free agent following the expiry of his contract with Heroic - whom he had joined in February 2018 after a short-lived spell with OpTic.

During his 18-month tenure with Heroic, friberg picked up title wins at Games Clash Masters 2018 and the TOYOTA Master CS:GO Bangkok, also helping the team to become a regular presence in the top 20 in the rankings.

friberg seeks a new challenge after spending 18 months in Heroic

In a statement, the former NiP member hinted that it was his decision to leave the Danish team, revealing that "I felt like it was time for a new challenge."

"With Heroic I won two trophies and countless of upsets against the very best teams in the world. I had the chance to learn Danish and grow a lot both as a player and as a person," he added.

I want to thank Heroic for our time together and wish the team and management best of luck in the future!”

friberg's departure leaves Heroic with a four-man active roster just two weeks before the team's first tournament of the season, the European closed qualifier for DreamHack Masters Malmö. The Danes' next LAN event on the horizon is the ESL Pro League Season 10 group stage, kicking off on October 8.

Heroic now have:

Denmark Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen
Denmark Benjamin "⁠blameF⁠" Bremer
Denmark Martin "⁠stavn⁠" Lund
Denmark Johannes "⁠b0RUP⁠" Borup

Denmark Frederik "⁠LOMME⁠" Nielsen (coach)

Denmark Daniel "⁠mertz⁠" Mertz (inactive)

2019-08-27 18:49
JW actually wrote out on Twitter that they haven't been in discussions with friberg, and they also mentioned in their Reddit AMA that while friberg is a good player, they were not interested in him. We'll see :)
2019-08-27 20:08

He's had one decent bo3 and was his last game against Vitality.....apart from that he has been trash, there is stats and info to back me up if you care to take a gander. Playing well in your last match, doesn't equate to playing 'decently' as of late if you have been poor the previous 10 lol. If you really look into his stats.... like I said, he plays great against the tier 3 teams xD xD hltv.org/stats/players/matches/7148/frib.. hltv.org/stats/players/events/7148/fribe.. That's a whole load of red.... and don't give me the only looking at stats bullshit, red is red my friend.

2019-08-27 21:51
25 is still young idiot. It's about still having the dedication and motivation. Jesus you ppl must be young to even think 25 is old for cs. You just have to want it still.. veterans get tired of the game sometimes and life happens. But players will become older as the money get's better. Imo players don't get a good enough salary and prize money to justify what they promote. Just stop saying players with a still shitty beard are too old.

2019-08-28 09:59
Doesn't matter what he said. You don't have to be too old. Rather I would say most players that get into the game are very young, and therefore JW is old relative to them. You just have to want it as much as the young players, reinvent yourself, and stay relevant.

Sadly i Think they’re bringing him as support / 2nd caller But indeed The Dream for me would be Snappi - IGL Blamef - 2nd caller & riffler B0rup - riffler Bubzkji - riffler & 2nd awper Mertz - Awper Es3tag to OpTic replacing TeSeS Tricked goes: Hunden, AcoR, Sjuush, TeSes & Stavn Suddenly Denmark could have 5 top tier contenders.
2019-08-28 12:39
That looks great, though this would make Heroic and tricked about equally good. I’d prefer stavn over bubzkji in Heroic

The guy is a absolute monster dude. The only reason they didn’t get him over Snappi was because his buyout was as Big as B0rups, and they didn’t have that much money for roster changes. Bubzkji and B0rup is The 2 Danish Stars of tommorow. If you wanna keep stavn, keep BlameF as IGL, and kick Snappi.
2019-08-28 17:25
i thought he is the clue of the team edit:pls dont join fnatic

Does anyone think that a team considered greater than Heroic has reached out to Friberg before his contract ended in order to recruit him? If so, what team do you have in mind? Or do you think the salary of the extension was too inferior?
2019-08-27 19:08
maybe he just wants to get back into the swedish scene even if it is in a worse team with less salary. can't really see any better teams than Heroic taking friberg, maybe some org wants to create some EU mix and pay them a lot of money idk

2019-08-27 19:19
Honestly he played good at Heroic
2019-08-27 19:20
He did quite good in this team, whole team aswell. Is he going back to NiP? Would be cool, both nip and fnatic are kinda low now anyway. Fnatic lower of course...
2019-08-27 19:21
let’s hope he stays as far away from nip as possible
2019-08-27 23:10

I think he should've stayed a little bit more and try things with b0RUP. Going back to NiP could work, he is a good player, but after the retweet(nip situation), I doubt that he will go there. Fnatic could be a good challenge. I just wish he finds a new challenge and succeeds! :)

Well, besides Astralis he can actually be an upgrade for almost any danish or swedish team. He improved a lot lately and has a lot of valuable experience to further develop young talent. I'm not so sure how much gas he has on the tank tho, but probably enough to give at least one good year to any team he joins.

I feel like if faze don't do well this Major. They will boot NEO and pick up Aleksib, but I doubt they would take Friberg because he's not an IGL. If they do pick Friberg, maybe NIKO could take IGL again like he did in mousesports..?

Me too. Rumors are saying that coldzera and Aleksib are going to faze, so NEO and Olof would leave FaZe. And probably Fnatic will make rosters changes after the major. Imagine seeing Olof replacing Xist in Fnatic, we would see Olof in Fnatic again and NiP with their old core

I didnt understand your first question. Get_right said he wouldn't stop playing. But we don't know yet if he will continue in nip or another team. I think he has many more years to give, but he really needs to leave this shit organisation and find happiness in game again. I hope he takes f0rest with him and joins friberg and pick up cold and olof/flusha. Would be a dream team.

No problem bro. Well, it's a long story, and I don't know the whole truth. Fifflaren being kicked seems like it was dirty game from the org, but also a lot of hate from the community sadly. Could be many more reasons. If you didnt watch the interview with fifflaren and Richard Lewis, do it! It's on YouTube. It's the very recent NIP scandal a few weeks ago. There's at least a lot of behind the scenes stuff which can explain some things. The video is not all about them leaving, but you can for sure build a background story. You should also check the Twitter of fifflaren. Friberg and Xizt i think it was for underperforming and because they were the weakest players in their respective times. If it was only the org or something else that made the decision I don't remember. Maybe someone else could fill me in? However, i think they really enjoyed playing together, and if they all performed at a high level, being contenders for titles, they would prefer to still play together. But you know, it's also a business. Sadly fifflaren is retired but I still hope for the core to play together again. So to sum it up, I don't think it was the decision of the players to split, it was a bigger picture. Have a nice evening bro

Ok bro, I will see that interview. I already know somethings about it, but I'll watch for sure to see more things. Now I've saw that Fnatic coach was replaced, and I saw that Twizt and Xizt have been benched. That could lead even more to their reunion (sry for my English). But I think that, if they come together again, it wouldn't be on NiP. I think Get_Right will take forest from NiP too. Thanks for the last messages man! Jag hoppas att du har en bra natt också (och ledsen om den här svensken ser väldigt konstig ut, jag använde Google Translate xD)

After reading almost all post. 1. There is more then just one door open for New SWE CS team, but the chemistry to hold down and control a team is hard work, to my knowledge there is none to take that roll and build a pure new team that will conquer a major top-spot. 2. There is most definitely doors open for a country mixture team, and coaches to make a team perform. even to build on existing teams but lets face it we see how that's rolled the past years. 3. Yeah there are some OLD farts still in SWE CS. There are still OLD farts in World of CS, Don' t let age fool you ! Almost every time the only thing that' s blocking there minds from still be the top players is the worlds view on Gamer's and the knowledge of growing up. (the acceptances of gamer's as a profession is getting better every year *thank good*) Actually i would like to see a 25/30+ roster.
