Pfieffer’s addition comes just days after the organization revealed that fan-favorite Adam “friberg” Friberg left the team to seek greener pastures. With Pfieffer’s addition, Heroic has returned to an all-Danish roster. Fredrick “LOMME” Nielsen, Heroic’s head coach, had this to say on Pfieffer’s return:
“Snappi is what we needed in the team because he brings the experience and stability that we lost in friberg. He fits into our system and roles and he’s gonna make the team and everyone in it play better. We have the perfect mix of players with insane aim and skill, while also having great teamplay.”
As of now, Heroic’s roster is as follows:
- Patrick “es3tag” Hansen
- Benjamin “blameF” Bremer
- Martin “stavn” Lund
- Johannes “b0RUP” Borup
- Marco “Snappi” Pfeiffer
- Fredrik “LOMME” Nielsen (Coach)
