Heroic have already made one change this week, but apparently another is on the horizon. Sources close to RushBMedia have said that Swedish legend Adam "friberg" Friberg will be departing from the team shortly and his replacement is already lined up. Heroic benched Christian "NaToSaphiX" Sillassen and quickly replaced him with Johannes "b0RUP" Borup on Tuesday of this week. Heroic also recently added Danish coach Frederik "LOMME" Nielsen to their ranks after Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu stepped down in July.

Heroic have had a mixed bag of results in the last six months, but after failing to qualify for the EU Minor in Berlin they have decided to make changes in the hopes they can finally crack the Top 10. Heroic are currently sitting 12th in the HLTV Rankings, but will surely drop due to the roster changes and the results from the Starladder Berlin Major which begins tomorrow. Friberg suffered from the same inconsistency that the Heroic lineup as a whole did in his time in the team. His best event under the Heroic banner came at IEM Chicago where Heroic upset Vitality in the opening match and and lost a close three map series to the French giants later in the tournament to finish 7th/8th. If sources are correct Heroic's lineup after Friberg's departure will be: Patrick "es3tag" Hansen Johannes "b0RUP" Borup Martin "stavn" Lund Benjamin "blamef" Bremer Frederik "LOMME" Nielsen (Coach)
