On Monday, December 18, Heroic announced the signing of Nico "nicoodoz" Tamjidi. The Danish Counter-Strike player joins Heroic as a new AWPer to fill in the vacant spot left behind by the departure of Casper "cadiaN" Møller in October.

Nicoodoz, who joined Heroic from Preasy, is the fifth and final player on Heroic's roster, which has undergone quite a turbulent time over the last couple of months. In October, Heroic lost their long-time in-game leader, cadiaN and two star players Martin "stavn" Lund and Jakob "jabbi" Nygaard, leaving the team struggling to pick up the pieces and find any stability.

Things, however, turned a sudden turn for the better this weekend when Heroic announced the signing of coach Eetu "sAw" Saha and Guy "NertZ" Iluz from ENCE, allowing the team to slowly move away from fielding a temporary lineup.

Over the last two months, Heroic had to play with Jason "salazar" Salazar, and Rasmus "Zyphon" Nordfoss as temporary solutions for roster problems. The team also added Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen, who signed a contract until the end of 2023.

So, while Heroic now field a five-man lineup, they might need to find another player to replace dupreeh or offer the Danish rifler a more permanent contract.

Nicoodoz Finds A New Home

Nicoodoz joins Heroic after a turbulent period of his Counter-Strike career. The Dane joined Fnatic in June 2022 and has spent just over one year with the team before getting benched in July 2023 amid Fnatic's roster overhaul.

During his time with Fnatic, nicoodoz has averaged a solid 1.08 rating and helped Fnatic produce a few notable tournament runs. However, his biggest achievement on the international roster was a quarterfinal appearance at the Intel Extreme Masters Rio 2023 Major.

After leaving Fnatic, nicoodoz returned to the Danish Counter-Strike with Preasy Esports, where he rediscovered his old form, averaging a 1.24 rating across the five months. And while his first stint with an international roster didn't go as planned, nicoodoz can feel optimistic about what he can help Heroic achieve in the upcoming season.

With the Christmas holidays around the corner, nicoodoz won't get a chance to debut for Heroic until BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024, which kicks off on January 22, 2024.
