Heroic announce legal proceedings against HUNDEN following “clear breach” of contract

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.

EasTor joins OFFSET |

The Spanish player and Portuguese organization link up again after parting ways in late 2020.

OFFSET have announced the signing of Rajohn “⁠EasTor⁠” Linato after coming to an agreement with VELOX for the transfer of the Spanish AWPer.

The move comes shortly after Ricardo “⁠fox⁠” Pacheco, who had been manning the ‘Big Green’ since the beginning of the year in the Portuguese team, announced he would be stepping back from competition.

EasTor will be on sniping duties in the Portuguese squad

EasTor‘s signing by OFFSET will mark his second stint with the Portuguese organization, which he joined in August 2020 after being benched by Movistar Riders and left at the end of the year.

In early 2021 the Spaniard then joined VELOX, a Spanish-Argentine venture that struggled to find breakthrough results even at a local level, and stood in for 9z in their BLAST Premier Spring Showdown run in April, helping them overcome Vitality in the single-elimination bracket.

The 27-year-old’s second tour with OFFSET will be very different than the first, however, as the team EasTor is now joining has nothing to do with the one he departed last year. The roster he first joined with the likes of Joao “⁠KILLDREAM⁠” Ferreira and Luís “⁠ZELIN⁠” Lousada was completely overhauled to make way for the current core under coach Vasco “⁠vsk⁠” Santos.

OFFSET are now:

PortugalRui “⁠RIZZZ⁠” Lima
PortugalFilipe “⁠NOPEEJ⁠” Dias
PortugalBruno “⁠shellzi⁠” Teixeira
PortugalDiogo “⁠snapy⁠” Rodrigues
SpainRajohn “⁠EasTor⁠” Linato
