Heroic have announced that they have begun a legal process against Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen following an investigation which allegedly revealed that the 30-year-old had shared sensitive information from the team’s strategy folder with a major competitor without the knowledge of the team. The former head coach’s contract with the organization has been terminated.
The release comes in response to a statement HUNDEN posted on Twitter on Wednesday, in which he denied rumors that he had shared the team’s strategy book and claimed that the only information he had discussed with colleagues from other teams was “anti-strat material of opponents.”
Heroic‘s statement sheds light on why HUNDEN was not part of the team at the latest tournament they attended, IEM Cologne, with the organization revealing that the team had unanimously decided that the coach would not participate in the event due to “severe trust issues.” It also claims that HUNDEN went on to block the team’s access to the strategy folder following the decision.
