Heroic have announced that Valde will be allowed to continue on another team. This comes as a welcome gesture from the organisation who could have potentially held him to ransom based on their wishes.
“I could definitely have handled the situation and the timing differently, but in the end I think the best solution for all is that I move on,” valde said.
“I have always appreciated the Heroic guys and the cooperation with RFRSH, who is indeed bringing a new and professional attitude to the game, but even though we are five very strong players, we did not function optimally as a team.
“I take my part of the responsibility, and it was a frustration to all that we didn’t function optimally. Now I look forward to finding a new team and I appreciate that RFRSH will help out in this situation.”
Heroic, who have qualified for ESL One Cologne after beating dignitas in the semi-finals of the closed qualifier, currently have the following quartet:
Andreas “MODDII” Fridh
Marco “Snappi” Pfeiffer
Jakob “JUGi” Hansen
Nikolaj “niko” Kristensen
