November 9, 2017
Heroic have now locked down their next coach after parting ways with FeTiSh -- who stepped down last month to focus on family -- and will be signing former TyLoo coach, peacemaker, the organization has revealed.
ANALYSIS
Last month Heroic had been left without a coach since parting ways with the Danish coach, FeTiSh. The team has experienced some ups and downs throughout the year but still has shown great promise. Now, Heroic bring in peacemaker, who has been part of Liquid, OpTic Gaming, and recently TyLoo, to help push Heroic to new heights. peacemaker has been in and out of teams throughout 2016 and early 2017, with a variety of mixed results. His recent venture with TyLoo came to an end after just joining the team in June; however, the coach explained that his departure was due to the language barrier. peacemaker will be on a trial period for the first couple months, as his initial contract is set to expire in January.

October 17, 2017
MODDII posted a 29/39 KD on Tuesday in a 2-0 loss to G2 Esports in ESL Pro League Season 6.
ANALYSIS
MODDII struggled in the first half of Inferno on the defense as the G2 offense was too much to handle. After taking a massive 13-2 deficit at the half, MODDII finally started to win some rounds in the second half for the offense by hounding down on the B-bombsite. Picking up the entry kills, MODDII would help win eight rounds in the second half but it wasn't enough to overcome G2, who would take Game 1 16-10. Game 2, MODDII didn't have the greatest start on Nuke as G2 would hold down the line on the defense in tight contention. However, MODDII was able to pick up a few offensive rounds on the lower-B push to close out the half with a 10-5 deficit. Going into the second, MODDII would lunge for a 4-0 start to cut the lead to one rounds 10-9. With money now in the bank for G2, MODDII couldn't hold G2 with the aggressive offense to reach a 14-10 lead. However, MODDII didn't pick up many kills to help his team in the come back as he posted a team-low 11/22 KD and 61.8 ADR in the 16-14 loss.

October 17, 2017
Snappi would go 42/43 on Tuesday in a 2-0 loss to G2 Esports in ESL Pro League Season 6.
ANALYSIS
Snappi was disowned in the first half of Inferno for the defense as G2 Esports would ravish his confidence to win any more rounds in the dominant 13-2 first half for G2. After taking a turn for the worst in the first half, Snappi came out in the second half with a fierce offense to push G2 back early on. Getting the entry-kills and post-plant holds, Snappi would earn the eight rounds won posting a 17/21 KD and 77.6 ADR. However, his momentum would fall short in the second half as G2 would finally close out Game 1 with a 16-10 win. Moving into Game 2, Snappi would have another slow start in the first half of Nuke as his offense couldn't penetrate the G2 defense. Although late in the half, Snappi was able to win some rounds to end the first half with a 10-5 deficit. However, the second half motion came back again as Snappi held the line for an abundance of rounds to cut the deficit to 10-9. His A-bombsite holds wouldn't hold for long as G2 would pounce on the offense to take on a 14-10 lead. From there, Snappi would hold off for four more rounds coming close to forcing the extra rounds but G2 shut the door with a 16-14 win.
