Henrik “FeTiSh” Christensen will step down as the coach of Heroic’s Counter-Strike team for personal reasons.
“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,” FeTiSh said Tuesday in a news release. “I am sure the team will bounce right back from this and fulfill their potential.”
FeTiSh first joined Heroic in May and helped the team to top four finishes at DreamHack Atlanta and DreamHack Valencia. Heroic also stunned the Counter-Strike community by reaching the playoffs of the ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier this month.
“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,” said Kasper Hvidt, director of sports at RFRSH Entertainment in the news release. “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.”
