LEC 2019 Champions FunPlus Phoenix have entered CS: GO’s pro scene with the signing of the Heroic roster led by Casper “cadiaN” Møller and his men.
According to a report from 1pv.fr, Chinese organization FunPlus Phoenix have decided to enter the Pro scene of Counter-Strike:Global Offensive as they have reportedly acquired Heroic’s CS:GO roster. With this transfer, the Danes would now be representing the Chinese Organization who is now looking forward to participating in the upcoming FLASHPOINT event to be held in Los Angeles, California from the 13th of this month. Though Heroic has signed a long-term agreement with ESL to participate in it’s Pro League tournament, the situation about their spot in the same remains unclear as of now. Heroic was all set to compete against Complexity, forZe, Natus Vincere, Fnatic and FURIA in the group B of Pro League Season 11. Flashpoint, the newly formed Counter-Strike:Global Offensive‘s league would be the first tournament to be entirely organized by the founder teams. The founding teams list do bear the likes of MIBR, Cloud9, Dignitas, MAD Lions, Envy, Gen.G, and c0ntact Gaming with yet three more teams required to round off the list.
Under Benjamin “blameF” Bremer, Team Heroic did witness a rise in their rankings on HLTV’s ranking pool. But soon afterwards, the latter was transferred to the Juggernauts (Complexity). Since then they haven’t been able to perform up to their mark in their latest fixtures where the Team failed to qualify for ESL One Rio’s Europe minor followed by losses against Heretics and Copenhagen Flames.
FunPlus Phoenix rose to dominance after they thrashed G2 Esports with a scoreline of 3-0 in the 2019 League of Legends World Championship held in Paris before they decided to expand their empire by entering into the CS: GO gig. FunPlus Phoenix also have their respective rosters who compete in PUBG and Fortnite.
