Heroic is down a man as Adam “friberg” Friberg has announced his departure from the organization. This was apparently his own decision as he decided not to renew his conract.
“A few weeks ago I decided that I would not sign a new contract with Heroic as my old contract was expiring,” he said in a TwitLonger explaining the situation and his future.
Friberg seeks “a new challenge” after going through many ups and downs with the team, he says even with better results the team failed to make playoffs at top tier events. The 27-year-old had been with the team for 18-months and helped the team achieve a consistent spot in the top 20 teams in the world.
“I was playing with Heroic for almost a year & a half, we had a lot of ups & downs with the team and countless of player changes. We started to do better in the last few big tournaments but unfortunately didn’t make it to the play-offs in any tier 1 tournament. Now I want a new challenge,” the Swedish player explained.
Continuing the same line of thought about new challenges, he continues to say he is on the market for a new team and is open to Swedish or international lineups.
He gave a nod to his teammates with Patrick “es3tag” Hansen getting his own call out for being “an amazing team mate and person.”
“I want to thank my team mates, especially Patrick “es3tag” Hansen for the time in Heroic, me and Patrick played with each other during my whole stay in Heroic, he’s an amazing team mate and person. I believe the team will do a lot of damage in the upcoming season and wish them best of luck!”
The are several possibilities as teams are waiting to see what shuffles may take place following the conclusion of the StarLadder Major in Berlin. With Friberg’s experience and form over recent months, it shouldn’t take long for someone to scoop him up.
