Niels-Christian "NaToSaphiX" Sillassen has joined Heroic's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster and will replace Daniel "mertz" Mertz.

The mertz addition from last year has yet to flourish, and the team decided to make a move.

NaToSaphiX shared his thoughts on his signing:

"I’ve been staying patient for a few months now, but it’s time to get back on the grind. I’ve found the team I want to commit to and I’m hoping for a long, lasting and successful journey with Heroic! I’m really honored and thankful that Heroic, such a big and powerful organization has decided to take me under their wings. I’m looking forward to becoming a hero!"

Heroic is in a swirl of qualifiers at the moment as the team looks to attend ESL One Cologne.
