Heroic was founded in 2013 as a promising challenger in the professional esports scene. Since then, through hard work and commitment, we have succeeded to position as one of the best elite teams globally. Heroic was acquired by Omaken Sports in February 2021, providing a strong platform for additional growth and expansion.
Omaken Sports was founded in 2020, and is headquartered in Oslo, Norway. Our founder, Joachim “NoobworK” Haraldsen is Norway’s most profiled gamer with an impressive industry network and a vision to position Heroic and the Nordic region at the top of the global esports scene.
Heroic Group AS recently raised NOK 210 million in capital, enabling the acquisition of Heroic and several other growth initiatives currently in the making. Heroic has one of the best professional CS:GO team globally, a world-leading PUBG roster, and a very promising R6 team. With rapid growth as our main objective, we are quickly entering new games, signing new elite teams, positioning for franchise stakes in top leagues, and attracting world-class commercial partners.
The timing is now, and the opportunities are many. Initially, our main target is to conquer the elite esports segment under the Heroic banner. Over time, Heroic group will grow into other gaming verticals.
Our company values are #BeCompetitive, #BeProfessional, and #BeBorderless. These three values are all captured in our #BeHeroic caption and intend to speak to and inspire current and future esports fans. We aim to motivate people to adopt heroic characteristics such as being a role model, showing courage, acting noble, or achieving greatness.
Being heroic is showing respect for others and promoting human equality. Standing up for yourself, and those in need. From an organizational point of view, we want all our employees to represent #BeHeroic through our joint ACHIEVEMENTS, the PERSONALITIES we represent, and our RESPONSIBILITY towards our fans, our communities, and through our social impact work.
