HEROIC’S ORIGIN

A casual home

The first iteration of HEROIC was founded in Copenhagen in March 2013. With the latest edition of Counter Strike (CS:GO) recently being launched, national tournaments were emerging, and local talents were looking for a “casual home” to support them getting to the events.

Like other local organizations, HEROIC’s main purpose was being a meeting point, transport players from A to B, facilitate payment of tournament fees, and (quite often) distribute prize pools. The best teams could potentially land small sponsorship deals but esports was not big business in Denmark back then.

Forging heroes

The name HEROIC was chosen for several reasons. Partly because it resonated well in many game titles, but mainly because it inspired the players to perform both individually and as a team. From 2013-2016 HEROIC had teams in CS:GO, LoL, Battlefield 4, Starcraft II, and Hearthstone.

The organization competed in most of the big national events, hosted community tournaments in Copenhagen, and supported the rise of many grassroots talents. Several big esports profiles spent their early days with HEROIC, most notably CS:GO legend Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz and former LEC player Kristoffer 'P1noy' Pedersen.

New ownership

In August of 2016, the Danish esports venture RFRSH adopted the HEROIC brand as one of three newly established teams. Alongside the two other team brands, Astralis and Godsent, HEROIC became the new home for the former CSGO lineup from SK Gaming.

RFRSH had a bigger ambition, more financial backing, and a more structured approach than the former HEROIC. Everything was new, but the iconic name lived on. HEROIC was later sold on from RFRSH to a Ukrainian owner, before eventually landing with the new and current owner, HEROIC Group, in 2021.
