OpTic Gaming goes full Danish with the addition of Heroic duo.
After a stint that lasted nearly three months, The Green Wall will be releasing its North American players. Peter “stanislaw” Jarguz and Shahzeeb “ShahZaM” Khan will be leaving the lineup immediately to make space for the new players. The team’s longtime coach Chet “ImAPet” Singh is set to depart as well.
Joining OpTic’s Danish core will be Jakob “JUGi” Hansen and Marco “Snappi” Pfeiffer, who the North American organization has acquired from Heroic for an undisclosed sum.
“I hope to be able to help OpTic meet the organization’s ambitions. It’s a big challenge for everybody, but I will do everything I can to make it happen,” Snappi said in a statement. “I’ve had two great years in Heroic, but I’ve decided to take a chance to develop in a new environment with new goals.”
The Heroic duo will be joining North alumni Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke and René “cajunb” Borg, as well as Nicklas “gade” Gade, currently on loan from North. Joining the team will be North’s former coach Casper “ruggah” Due.
Whether the Danish team will remain in North America or return to Europe is yet to be seen.
