Team X form Heroic
Team X have made the decision of creating a player-owned organisation branded Heroic.
Heroic, formerly known as Team X have made the decision to form a player-owned organisation. The team is comprised of the former SK Gaming representatives Michael "Friis" Jørgensen and Andreas "MODDII" Fridh, complemented by ex-Copenhagen Wolves players Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer, Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander and Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså.
The roster indeed shows promise as it has qualified for both the DreamHack ZOWIE Open: Bucharest 2016 and the StarLadder i-League Season 2 Finals. Regarding current events, the team can be seen competing at the ESL Pro League Season 4 and in the near future will be playing at the Power-LAN.
Below is a statement from the newly formed organisation:
Since the core of our team’s departure from SK, we have been focused on finding the correct mix of five players, that could carry our ambition to prove ourselves among the worlds best. Now, we believe we have finally found exactly that and our results are a clear indication that we are on the right path.
With the lineup settled and proven, the next step is moving on from our temporary name – Team X. We have all spent multiple years in the Counter-Strike game, across many teams and brands and we are extremely excited to finally be able to call ourselves co-owners of Heroic. We believe that the time has never been more right to take this step and we have never been more motivated to make this a global esports success. We will soon be announcing the partners who have helped make Heroic a reality.
We hope that all our fans will follow us on this journey and that we will welcome many new ones on board over the coming months. You can catch us playing live this weekend from the POWERLan in Denmark, where you will see the Heroic logo on our jerseys for the very first time.
For any interested partners, sponsors or anything related, please feel free to reach out to us on [email protected]
Michael, Lukas, Valdemar, Marco & Andreas.”
