FeTiSh resigns from Heroic for personal reasons

FeTiSh resigns from Heroic for personal reasons

Heroic announced that Henrik “FeTiSh” Christense is no longer the coach of the team. They mutually agreed to end the contract due to personal reasons.

FeTiSh loved his time with Heroic, and wished he worked for such a great team even when he was a player. Unfortunately, due to family problems he reluctantly decided to leave his position as a coach to dedicate his time to personal matters.

The Danish player started his career in Counter-Strike: Source, and joined Heroic with a coaching position on May 2nd, 2017. Recently the team didn't achieve the expected results: they lost the WESG 2017 Denmark qualifier, only obtained a top 8 placement at ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2017, and didn't qualify for the next European Minor.

First of all, it has been a pleasure working with the Heroic players. It has been a great learning process for all, and we’ve accomplished some really good things together as individuals and as a team.

Also working RFRSH and experiencing the organization’s attitude towards the game, players, training and working as true professionals has been a great experience for me, and I can only say, I’d wish I had the opportunity to work in such an environment when I was an active player. We have certainly come a long way since I started.

I leave the team to focus on other things, including my family which also forced me to stay at home for personal reasons during the ELEAGUE tournament, but I would like to thank all the Heroic players and RFRSH, and I wish nothing but the best for all of them. I am sure the team will bounce right back from this and fulfill their potential.

Heroic also declared that they are actively looking for a new coach.

It has been a pleasure working with Henrik, both as a person and as a professional. Heroic is a group of very skilled players with great potential, and I have no doubt, he would have been able to bring the team even closer to the top in the rankings.

We have had some really good talks about the situation, and I respect Henrik’s decision to direct his focus where he is needed, and we wish him all the best.

We will now be actively searching for a new coach with the capacity to continue the work towards fulfilling Heroic’s full potential under the RFRSH Performance model.
— Kasper Hvidt - Director of Sports at RFRSH Entertainment

Heroic’s roster:

  • Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer
