Never expected to become an esports owner himself, Joachim Haraldsen made headlines for taking an unexpected path in his jiu-jitsu career: becoming one of the world’s renowned jiu-jitsu players before going on to own one of the top teams in esports.
Current ESL Pro League Season 17 playoffs competition is underway between the team and other competitors from Group D of ESL Pro League Season 17. Group winners advance directly into quarterfinals while runners-up enter as high seeds into Round of 12.
Heroic Esports is a top-tier esports organization with teams in CS:GO, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) and Rainbow Six Siege. Heroic currently ranks 8th at the PUBG Finland Suomiliiga Seasons 2021 competition in PUBG.
In CS:GO, they have won multiple tournaments and championships – most recently ESL Pro League Season 13. Led by Nicolas Hansen as manager, and with cadiaN acting as their in-game leader.
Heroic has recently achieved great success at TOYOTA Master CS:GO Bangkok 2018 as well as Copenhagen Games 2018 and WESG 2022 World Finals where they finished first and second respectively.
Heroic CS:GO has gone through some ups and downs over the years, yet by making strategic adjustments they’ve managed to find success. Additionally, they are always seeking talented players to join their roster; if interested in becoming part of them you can contact them through their website.
Not every day does a Norwegian teenage jiu-jitsu star make headlines by becoming owner of one of Europe’s premier esports teams – but that was exactly the case for Joachim Haraldsen.
Even with some setbacks this year, the team managed to come through strong performances and regain top rank in rankings. They achieved 1st – 3rd places at both BLAST Premier Spring Groups and IEM Katowice Grand Final.
But things haven’t gone smoothly at other events: Heroic placed 6th-8th at ESL Pro League Season 17 and saw more roster changes as MODDII was put on bench, Valde was replaced with RUBINO and JUGI left to join G2 Esports.
Heroic has had an outstanding start to 2016 despite some roster reshuffles, showing impressive results at both Intel Extreme Masters XI – World Championship and Power-LAN 2016. They took 3-4 place overall and won both events!
At IEM Rio Major 2022 Champions Round, they proved why they are one of the best teams around. Inferno proved especially tough as they ran away with victory by an 18-4 scoreline on that map.
Heroic faltered on Overpass map due to the loss of their Jabbi; TheMongolz seemed likely to turn things around and take control of the game.
Heroic was eventually able to recover and win 16-11, taking back their place atop CS:GO rankings by dethroning G2. With this impressive victory, they took back their crown.
Heroic has earned themselves a name as an award-winning multi-game esports organization with phenomenal results across various titles. Boasting some of the world’s best CS:GO players and an experienced staff, Heroic boasts some impressive results across multiple esports titles.
However, it has been reported that an esports organization is in financial difficulty and may need to make mass layoffs. Without additional capital and liquidity from investors, they will not be able to meet their ongoing obligations.
Heroic are still performing strongly despite financial challenges, placing second in both Katowice and Rio majors and winning BLAST Premier: Fall Finals 2022. Their opponents cannot ignore them; should they secure adequate funding they will continue their dominance of CS:GO scene; in the meantime they’ll need to work hard and continue improving themselves.
