We are happy to announce that Heroic’s Counter-Strike team has signed Jakob “jabbi” Nygaard, who will immediately join the team on bootcamp to prepare for Cologne.
Jakob “jabbi” Nygaard, new Heroic player:
“I am delighted to join Heroic. It is a huge opportunity for me to become a part of this team. It is a team that plays exciting CS while consistently being in the top 5. I am looking forward to proving myself and showing that I can help take Heroic even further. It will be an exciting new journey, and Heroic is the perfect place for me to continue my development. I also know a lot of the players in the team – they are great guys.”
Oliver Valsgaard, Head of Esports Operations:
“With Jakob, we are getting one of the most promising young players in Denmark. He is 18 years old and has already performed at two CS:GO Majors. He is very mature for his age, communicates well, and he can aim. Jakob has a great attitude towards hard work and is constantly looking to improve himself. We are super excited to have him on board, and we believe he is the missing piece towards making us consistently contend for the biggest trophies.
Many people will probably question making a change on a team that has been performing consistently in the top 10, but at Heroic we are willing to risk something very good at the chance to become the very best.
The core of this team is young and very talented, and with our strong leadership and performance team around them, we believe they will be among the best teams in the world for many years to come.”
