Heroic have decided to make a roster change following their 9th-12th finish at IEM Katowice. The former MAD Lions duo of Ismail “refrezh” Ali and Rasmus “sjuush” Beck comes in to replace Johannes “b0RUP” Borup and Nikolaj “niko” Kristensen, who were benched by the organisation earlier today.

“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”, Casper “⁠cadiaN⁠” Møller said in a statement “I’m very excited to see this happen, and I’m confident both new players will work great in Heroic.”

Heroic established themselves as one of the world’s best teams during 2020 after wins at ESL One Cologne and DreamHack Open Fall, but the winter period has not been kind to them. The Danes will hope that an injection of new blood will be enough to keep their place in the Top 10, a position that is now under threat after the rise of teams like Gambit and Spirit.

With the addition of refrezh and sjuush, Heroic now looks as follows:

  • 🇩🇰 stavn
  • 🇩🇰 TeSeS
  • 🇩🇰 cadiaN
  • 🇩🇰 sjuush
  • 🇩🇰 refrezh
