Heroic bench b0RUP, niko

The two players found themselves on the chopping block after a 9-12th finish at IEM Katowice 2021.

After a 10-month period of stability during which the team won ESL One Cologne 2020 Europe and was briefly ranked the #1 team in the world, Heroic have decided to make changes to their roster, benching Johannes "⁠b0RUP⁠" Borup and Nikolaj "⁠niko⁠" Kristensen.

b0RUP was a part of Heroic since September 2019

b0RUP and niko were statistically the worst performers for Heroic over the last three months, averaging a 0.90 and 1.03 rating, respectively. In that period, the team recorded a couple of underwhelming results, failing to qualify for the BLAST Premier Fall Finals and suffering early exits in IEM Global Challenge and IEM Katowice.

Heroic, who were recently acquired by Norwegian esports organization Omaken Sports, will be hoping that a fresh injection of talent will turn things around for their team, who are at risk of falling out of the top 10 in the world.

In the team's official announcement, Heroic thanked the two players for their efforts and wished them the best as they are no longer a part of the active lineup.

Heroic are now:

Denmark Casper "⁠cadiaN⁠" Møller
Denmark Martin "⁠stavn⁠" Lund
Denmark René "⁠TeSeS⁠" Madsen

Denmark Johannes "⁠b0RUP⁠" Borup (benched)
Denmark Nikolaj "⁠niko⁠" Kristensen (benched)

flusha is not one of the smartest players to ever touch the game lol. he was good for his time, and ahead of it, but like most og players he couldnt adapt to the evolution of cs throughout the years. and if u had just a bit knowledge of fluashas career, you would know that the man has 0 interest in anything that has to do with leading or calling. bubskji is locked in astralis, 2 iq suggestion, they would have to pay way more than his worth. thomas is free, talented, speaks perfectly english if they want to convert to that, he is hungry and talented aswel. he has just been on random bad line ups, but an average player like you wouldnt be able to spot that. they would 100% make profit by signing thomas even if he flops considering he is FREE, but and average person like you wouldnt be able to do that simple math. u r high on emotions and low on iq points. dont know why i waste my time on ppl like u.

I can't imagine it being cajunb. His tilt/toxicity has always been a problem, and heroic is kind of a high-spirit team, a thing he could easily destroy. He ain't good enough for any team aspiring or being tier 1.

a 1:1 trade with niko for bubzkji seems reasonable. I think both teams would benefit more from their playing style. It is obvious that bubzkji doesnt mesh well with the astralis ideology. Imagine him on an explosive team like heroic
2021-02-26 13:53
no please not Botbye = unfriend
2021-02-26 13:46
Yeah that’s what I was thinking b0RUP and Stavn, thank god he’s still here, were always the standout performers: this to me is like Astralis kicking Dev1ce, is he the most important? No, but he’s a big part in why they’ve won. Also hope bubzkji and MICHU join up.

A major win means the same no matter which team you win it with? Also he owns 1 of only 15 Major MVP medals in existence which makes him pretty big name historically speaking.
2021-02-26 14:08
1 reply
I meant that winning a major with Astralis doesn't make you a big name because of how it is the team that is dominant, not the performance of 1 player. If by big name you only speak of palmares, than yes, but that's perfectly understandable that he get kicked/benched then.

Bad move from heroic, i can only assume that the players got a better offer. niko is really good (just in a bit of a slump), and b0rup is a good support. If heroic sign aizy and msl i will lose my mind.

Bad move. removing b0rup was okay but not niko, he was the player with most potential to grow.. He is mechanically insane but was having a rough period. Maybe only if they add Kjaerbye then this move makes sense or else this will be the falling of Heroic.
2021-02-26 13:38
Lol, niko was solid
2021-02-26 13:38
feel bad for niko he seems to be in and out of teams even though he is a great player. also bit strange considering how well heroic have done with this roster. seems like they needed to work through some issues and they would be back up there. seems like the roster change is the "answer" for most csgo teams. look at astralis, same lineup for years. look at navi same lineup for long time. look at big. same line up for long time. why change rosters so much?

2021-02-26 13:47
Not sure why benching niko If Heroic goes international as advertised, good luck ever winning again, international teams just don’t work for some reason Not sure which danes they should replace with, if they still want a danish roster
2021-02-26 13:47
1 reply
There's still a lot of Danish talent available. Ex-north, Kjaerbye and they might be able to afford some ML players or players from the t2-3 scene.
2021-02-26 13:59
Why ? Lol dumbest move they could've made... I bet they are gonna go for Kjearbye and aizy...
2021-02-26 13:48
So instead of working out their flaws and improve they decide to start fresh. In 2 months we'll get the typical excuses "it's still early, we are improving with this new line up" then "we have to change this and that" then "playerX and playerY get benched" then bis repetita. When will teams learn that you cant be top5 world all the time? That there is only a limited number of spots and that it's almost impossible to perform at your best all the time except when you have zywoo, s1mple or the best line up of all time like Astralis. It's just waste of time on top of waste of time. Sad. "Professional" CS still looks like CS from 2004, bench on top of bench on top of bench.
2021-02-26 13:50
Damn, I have been a fan of this Heroic team in 2020. I don't understand how things went downwards so fast. The break didn't do them any good I guess. Already parting ways with players now seems a little bit of panic from the management side in my opinion.

niko is the most tragic character in CS:GO. Played very well in Heroic 2017 - benched, played well in North and was key success in 2018 North - benched, now Heroic - the same. When people will understand that after Astralis and coL players he is the best Danish player?

Ok just gonna say WTF?????? I wish teams would stop swapping out just cuz they have lost 1-2 tournaments and as for Heroic I have to say this is a HUGE mistake. Heroic was a pretty homogene team and still developing but meanwhile getting real good results. Have that team play together for 2-3 years and I guarentee its a certain top 1-2 consistantly. Btw I have nothing against Sjuush or Refrezh. Both good players.
