One of Denmark’s most promising CS:GO players has finally completed his big money move to Heroic after weeks of back and forth.
Earlier in the year Heroic contacted tRICKED in regards to signing Jakob "JUGi" Hansen, however having being burned in the past by Heroic the tRICKED management we're less than willing to let JUGi leave. This resulted in JUGi signing a contract for with Heroic that was due to start in January 2018, when his contract with tRICKED expires.
As a result of this action tRICKED then benched JUGi, meaning he wouldn’t play competitively for the next 11 months unless Heroic stumped up some serious cash.
While the exact details of the deal have not been announced JUGi is now a part of Heroic and is replacing Michael "Friis" Jørgensen, one of the founding members of the team. JUGi has already played with the team online but next week will head to the Intel Extreme Masters Katowice to test his skills against the best in the world.
