Heroic’s former in-game leader is free to pursue other opportunities in the competitive Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scene.

Asger “AcilioN” Larsen no longer has a contract with Heroic, he announced today.

The former in-game leader was moved to the bench in March after Heroic failed to reach the finals of GG. BET Ice Challenge in February.

Heroic brought up Martin “stavn” Lund to replace AcilioN and Benjamin “blameF” Bremer has been their captain since then.

AcilioN led Heroic to two LAN titles at Games Clash Masters in September 2018 and Toyota Master CS:GO in November 2018. Although they weren’t the biggest tournaments, the Danes earned $90,000 by winning them.

AcilioN is one of the most experienced players in the Danish CS:GO scene, having played for notable Danish teams like SK Gaming in 2015 and 2016, Tricked Esports and Team Dignitas in 2017, and his last stint with Heroic from June 2018 to March.

He’s also represented two international teams: Splyce in 2016 and Imperial in 2018—Imperial later became Valiance.

It’s unclear exactly what the future holds for AcilioN, but the Danish scene has some free players who could assemble a new team. This includes Casper “cadiaN” Møller, former North player Daniel Mertz, who’s been sitting on Heroic’s bench since May 9, and all of the players from ex-Fragsters, who parted ways earlier this month.
