Sidelined once more
July 1, 2018
RUBINO's eye infection has come back with a vengeance, meaning the Norwegian will continue to sit out, HLTV.org reports.
ANALYSIS
At the beginning of May, the 24-year-old contracted an eye infection that forced him to sit out at ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals in Dallas and DreamHack Austin. RUBINO came back just in time to play at the CS:GO Asia Championships, where he helped Heroic advance to the quarterfinals.

Signs with Heroic
May 11, 2018
Heroic have revealed that they have signed a long-term contract with friberg.
ANALYSIS
After serving as a stand-in for nearly two weeks, friberg will now officially be a member of Heroic. The 26-year-old has been a stand-in as a result of JUGi and Snappi parting ways with the team to join OpTic Gaming in late April. Since then, friberg has been helping the team in the remainder of the ESL Pro League season, where the team finished in eighth place but ended up replacing HellRaisers at the finals in Dallas, due to woxic's visa issues. The ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals in Dallas will be friberg's first official offline match with Heroic as he will also attend the CS:GO Asia Championships, which will take place on June 14th-18th in Shangai, China.
