Heroic sign sjuush, refrezh
Heroic have announced their two new signings, Rasmus "sjuush" Beck and Ismail "refrezh" Ali, who will slot into the team to complete their lineup following the benchings of b0RUP and niko earlier on Friday.
"We have had a successful run with the last roster but we feel that we can come even further with these changes to the team", team captain Casper "cadiaN" Møller said about the adjustment to the lineup, which had the same five since April 2020. "I'm very excited to see this happen, and I'm confident both new players will work great in Heroic."
cadiaN also praised the new Heroic's capability to make this change happen so quickly, referring to the organization being acquired by Omaken Sports earlier in February. "We're already seeing how agile and fast-moving the organization can be. Not being afraid to make the changes needed for the team is an incredibly strong value to possess."
According to the announcement, sjuush will take on the support role for the team. The 22-year-old says that he "can't wait to start working hard with the boys and prove that this team will be one to remember", while refrezh adds that since getting the offer to join Heroic he has barely slept: "I'm so excited to be working with such talented and smart players, they're really something special."
On the other hand, the departures of two key members leave MAD Lions with just three players. The latest roster change happened before Thomas "TMB" Bundsbæk managed to debut for the team after signing from AGF at the end of January. The organization also cut ties with their coach Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu recently, who admitted that the departure "came as a surprise to many, including myself".
