Esportorganisasjonene Heroic og OpTic Gaming har bekreftet a CS:GO-spillerne Marco 'Snappi' Pfeiffer og Jacob 'JUGi' Hansen har blitt overført til OpTic. Vi har ikke fått noen flere detaljer, men vet at dette er noe begge lagene er enige om.
Kasper Hvidt, 'Director of Sports' ved Rfrsh Entertainment (som har ansvar for Heroic), hadde dette å si om byttet:
"It's certainly a big day for the players and for Heroic as an organization. Together, we have secured some nice results and we have somewhat closed the gap to the very best teams out there via teamwork and individual performances. This has not happened without the players making names for themselves, and both Snappi and JUGi are very skilled individuals who certainly deliver top class Counter-Strike when at their best."
"On the other hand, we are working on building Heroic's profile and identity around the performance model and structure, we've seen working with other teams. With this in mind and the nature of the offer we received from OpTic, the choice was not that hard, especially when considering the players were very positive about the offer that was made. It has all happened very fast from receiving the initial offer, through negotiation with both parties and then the players."
Heroic har vanligvis en lagoppstilling som inkluderer seks spillere, hvilket betyr at det bare er én ledig plass på rosteren akkurat nå. Den plassen fylles midlertidig av Adam 'Friberg' Friberg.
Tror du dette byttet er bra for begge lagene?
