Heroic, the renowned esports organization, has taken an unexpected and shocking turn in its Counter-Strike roster decisions.

The team announced that Martin “⁠stavn⁠” Lund and Jakob “⁠jabbi⁠” Nygaard have been temporarily benched.

This move comes on the heels of the removal of Casper “⁠cadiaN⁠” Møller from the roster in early October.

Heroic claims that stavn and jabbi initiated this change with an ultimatum after their performance at ESL Pro League.

According to Heroic, they agreed to stavn and jabbi’s ultimatum, which led to cadiaN’s benching.

The expectation was that in return, stavn and jabbi would extend their contracts with Heroic, which were set to expire in approximately 10 months.

However, no contracts were signed, and rumors surfaced about potential interest from Astralis in acquiring the services of stavn and jabbi.

Heroic has expressed a willingness to engage in discussions with organizations that appreciate the market value of their players.

Despite the ongoing uncertainty, Heroic’s primary ambition is to reinstate stavn and jabbi into the starting lineup.

The team’s performance staff has devised a plan to support their potential return to the organization.

In their official statement, Heroic highlighted the events leading up to these roster changes.

Stavn and jabbi had pushed for cadiaN’s removal after ESL Pro League, a move that took both cadiaN and Heroic’s management by surprise.

Mediation attempts were made, but the situation escalated to an ultimatum, forcing Heroic to make a choice between cadiaN and the rest of the team.

Stavn and jabbi agreed to extend their contracts if cadiaN was let go, and Heroic agreed to this condition.

However, on the same day that Heroic presented new contracts to stavn and jabbi, the players communicated their plans with Astralis.

These developments unfolded while Heroic still had almost 10 months left on their existing contracts.

Despite this, Heroic remains committed to the idea of bringing stavn and jabbi back into the fold.

To address the immediate gaps in their roster, Heroic has enlisted Peter “⁠dupreeh⁠” Rasmussen as a temporary replacement for cadiaN until the end of 2023.

For their upcoming matches in the Roobet Cup and Thunderpick World Championship, they will utilize the MOUZ NXT duo of William “⁠sirah⁠” Kjærsgaard and Christoffer “⁠Chr1zN⁠” Storgaard.

However, the situation took an intriguing twist when stavn posted a cryptic tweet just hours after Heroic’s announcement, which some interpreted as a veiled criticism of the organization.

The tweet read, “Gotta love the world we live in. What is the saying? Truth always prevails.”

This saga has left fans uncertain about Heroic’s future in the Counter-Strike scene.

With cadiaN’s departure and the uncertainty surrounding stavn and jabbi, the team’s ability to remain competitive has been cast into doubt.

Heroic did debut with their revamped roster against Aurora in the Roobet Cup 2023’s Group A opener, securing a 2-1 victory despite fielding MOUZ NXT’s players.

However, their prospects for success appear uncertain given the turmoil within the organization.
