Xizt renews contract with Heroic

The Swede has signed a two-year extension with Heroic.

Richard "⁠Xizt⁠" Landström has extended his contract as Heroic's coach on a two-year deal, the organization has announced. The former Ninjas in Pyjamas captain stood behind his men all throughout Heroic's 2022 campaign in which they reached the IEM Rio Major grand final, won their first Big Event on LAN at the BLAST Fall Final and were the world's highest-ranked team at the turn of the year.

Heroic reached new heights in 2022 with Xizt standing behind them

Xizt's two-year extension secures his place within Heroic until 2025. He is the fifth member of the squad to have signed a new contract alongside Casper "⁠cadiaN⁠" Møller, Rasmus "⁠sjuush⁠" Beck, René "⁠TeSeS⁠" Madsen, and Martin "⁠stavn⁠" Lund, who renewed their contracts with the Danish organization for two years during the last trimester of 2022.

"It feels amazing to renew my contract with Heroic. It was, for me, a no-brainer. I think we're really onto building something great here and I'm just excited," Xizt said about his extension.

Heroic's lineup is:

Denmark Jakob "⁠jabbi⁠" Nygaard
Denmark Casper "⁠cadiaN⁠" Møller
Denmark Martin "⁠stavn⁠" Lund
Denmark René "⁠TeSeS⁠" Madsen
Denmark Rasmus "⁠sjuush⁠" Beck

Sweden Richard "⁠Xizt⁠" Landström

Just because other teams have, you know. That's the logic behind coaches in most teams. If he adds something above it - than it's profitable already.

I tried to be funny. Went sideways I guess. Tho xizt looks hot. I'm pretty sure that a coach is an important job, strategically as well as morally. If only they can provide an outside look, that should help massively. If they can ignite hope, confidence, etc even more so.

Does anyone have insight if xizt spesk danish?? In which languague do they communicate? I guess that the playeres obviously speak danish with each other. How does xizt chime in them?

I think he said a long time ago in an interview after he joined that he mainly communicates in English

Heard the same. Pretty sure he said then that he understood the Danish but the players struggled a bit with his Swedish, so he mostly replied to them in English. Since they’ve been working together for a long time now, perhaps they have less trouble with his Swedish.
2023-01-25 15:53
In the video they literally say that he doesnt understand them so he obviously doesnt speak Danish.
2023-01-25 16:20
English apparently. Strange. Should be fairly easy to understand danish for a Swede. At least when he’s been their coach for so long now. It’s so similar to Swedish once you learn the melody.

Nice for him. But he seems like a very introvert guy. You dont see him being very verbal and communicating with the team during timeouts. Always quiet and just observing. I dont know what he contributes with. Is he more like a cute mascot for them ?

he's not much of a moral support but definitely a tactical \ strategic coach who has a different perspective than cadiaN so together they make up game plans with less mistakes, and he prolly also controls training routines and the way they do demo reviews, etc if they signed him for another two years, that means a lot tbf
2023-01-25 15:51
With how rabid the players are especially Comedian it's good that they have a chill coach to balance it out

Xizt and Blade are the only 2 coaches with discounted contract. You do not pay the full price? OK, but then you don't get the emotions :D
