Heroic announced the signing of Benjamin “blameF” Bremer to the active roster from Epsilon eSports, replacing Andreas "MODDII" Fridh.
The move comes after Heroic failed to qualify for the IEM Katowice 2019 Minor in early December, losing BO3s to OpTic Gaming and ENCE. During that time, Fridh never posted an HLTV rating of higher than .85, and severely underperformed during Heroic’s only win of the tournament, a 2-0 win over Fragsters.
MODDII made the announcement on Twitter that he had been benched Tuesday morning, which was followed by a tweet from the official Heroic account further clarifying that MODDII had been benched by Heroic’s coach, Luis “peacemaker” Tadeu. Early Wednesday morning, Heroic officially announced the signing of blameF:
With the addition of blameF, Heroic looks to add a stable rifler to the Danish squad. In the entirety of 2018, blameF has managed a combined HLTV rating of 1.32 and should add much-needed consistency to a Heroic team that struggled down the stretch in 2018. Heroic will play their first match with blameF at WePlay! Lock and Load, an online tournament with a $50,000 prize pool starting on January 30th.
Currently, the Heroic roster is as follows:
- Patrick “es3tag” Hansen
- Adam “friberg” Friberg
- Asger “Acilion” Larson
- Daniel “mertz” Mertz
- Benjamin “blamef” Bremmer
