Heroic have announced the departure of Adam “friberg” Friberg. According to a statement by the Swede, he chose not to extend his contract with the Danish organization. For the time being, he’s looking for opportunities as a free agent.
“I was playing with Heroic for almost a year & a half, we had a lot of ups & downs with the team and countless of player changes. We started to do better in the last few big tournaments but unfortunately didn't make it to the play-offs in any tier 1 tournament. Now I want a new challenge,“ the former NIP player explained.
During his 18 months stay at Heroic, friberg won two tournaments at Games Clash Masters 2018 and the Toyota Master Bangkok and helped lift the team to a lower mid-tier contender level.
The organization has not announced a replacement for friberg yet, though they will have to make moves within the next two weeks before their season start. Heroic had just recently let go of Niels-Christian “NaToSapiX” Sillassen and brought on the Danish youngster Johannes “b0RUP” Borup and is looking to add a fourth member.
