Heroic complete roster with niko signing
Heroic removed Patrick "es3tag" Hansen and Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer from their active roster at the start of April, announcing big changes to the team upon their return from North America and a failed transfer to FunPlus Phoenix, whom they had represented for one game in Flashpoint 1.
The 21-year-old is fairly experienced for his age, having represented Heroic between 2016 and 2018, before going on to play for North, Rogue, and OpTic. He has attended 10 Big Events since 2016, with a 3rd-4th place finish at IEM Katowice 2017 and a win at DreamHack Masters Stockholm 2018 his biggest achievements.
"I am very happy to work with Nikolaj!," Casper "cadiaN" Møller told Heroic's statement. "I think he is one of the best players in Denmark and definitely was a high priority for us. His communication is very good, and he has a vast experience of the game.
"This also marks the new Heroic roster, which I feel will be very successful, with time. It's a lot of young and raw talent, and it will take a lot of hard work to reach the results we want.
"I am, however, confident that we can reach new heights with this roster. I have high hopes for the future!"
The new Heroic lineup will make its first official appearance in the Elisa Invitational, a Nordic tournament with two spots at BLAST Premier Spring Showdown on offer. Following niko's addition, the team now look as follows:
