Xizt becomes the new coach of the Heroic team. In addition, the legendary Swede will serve as an analyst.
"Xizt will join us as an analyst and act as a coach at the PGL Major. We are delighted that a true CS legend will work with us! We are confident that he will help us take our team to new heights in 2021", - the organization wrote in a press release.
Three months after the resignation of HUNDEN, the Danish team still found a coach, clearly deciding to forget about all the scandals associated with their former mentor. From now on, Heroic will be headed by Xizt, who just a month ago announced his retirement from his professional career.
It is interesting that for the last three months the Danish team has actually played without a coach. During this time, Heroic made it to the TOP-4 at ESL Pro League Season 14, and also won the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown 2021.
Recall that Xizt is rightfully a legend of the scene, in particular, having become the winner of ESL One: Cologne 2014, DreamHack Masters Malmö 2016, Intel Extreme Masters XI - Oakland, Intel Extreme Masters XII - Oakland and Intel Extreme Masters XIII - Sydney. In addition, the Swede took silver in tournaments such as DreamHack Winter 2013, ESL Major Series One Katowice 2014, DreamHack Winter 2014 and ESL One: Katowice 2015.
Very soon Heroic will play at PGL Major Stockholm 2021, where they will play against the TYLOO team in the first round.
From now on, Heroic's roster looks like this:
- Xizt (trainer/analyst).
