cadiaN and stavn sign contract extensions with Heroic
The pair are committed to the Norwegian organisation for an additional two years.
Heroic have announced that both Casper "cadiaN" Møller and Martin "stavn" Lund have signed two-year contract extensions with the organisation, the two Danes now having deals that extend well into 2024.
The duo are currently the longest-serving members of the Heroic roster, both representing the brand for over three years following their additions in March and October 2019, respectively.
The pair have been integral parts of the Heroic roster during their current three years of service, with stavn in particular having considerable impact. The 20-year-old consistently ranks as one of the highest-rated players, with the young Dane twice featuring on HLTV's top 20 players of the year in both 2020 and 2021.
Heroic have enjoyed a fair amount of success with cadiaN and stavn on their books. The Danish lineup peaked at No. 1 on the world ranking for three weeks towards the tail end of 2020, whilst also securing first-place finishes at ESL One Cologne 2020 and ESL Pro League Season 13 during the online era. The team did have to wait a fair while to earn their first LAN victory, though, doing so at Pinnacle Cup Championship 2022 in June.
The roster has struggled in the server as of late, currently sitting just shy of a top-ten placing on the HLTV world ranking. The quintet missed out on a place in the playoffs of IEM Cologne 2022, where they finished 13-16th to end the season, before going on to bow out of ESL Pro League Season 16 in 9-12th place, following a 1-2 loss to Natus Vincere in the opening round of the knockout stage.
The announcement of the contract extensions comes just days before Heroic are set to begin their campaign through the IEM Road to Rio Europe RMR B. Their path to securing qualification for IEM Major Rio begins with an opening matchup versus SAW on October 4 at 17:15 .
Heroic have the following roster:
