Heroic have this evening put out a statement under the title “Being Heroic”, on their official Twitter profile. The Danish team says in the statement that they have established a new job occupation inside their organization, called Chief Cultural Officier. The new position will "develop a firm basis of values and a culture which we will name ‘Being Heroic’”. A culture which stands for “being your best you, both on and off the server”
The statement has received heavy back clash, from a variety of people in the CS:GO scene. Because some individuals believe that Heroic doesn’t hold a clear conscience, due to the decision not to dismiss Nicolai “Hunden” Petersen. Hunden, who was among the 37 coaches which received a ban in the disputed “Coaching Bug” scandal. The Danish coach was not discharged by Heroic after the announcement, they just chose to redeploy him as an analyst.
Watch some of the reaction from analyst and experts Janko "YNk" Paunović and Mohan "launders" Govindasamy who both questions Heroic’s new “Being Heroic” culture.
