TeSeS: "It’s difficult to play with so much noise and hate around"
Rene "TeSeS" Madsen from Heroic opened up about the current conditions of his team during a press conference with journalists dedicated to the start of the ESL Pro League Season 14 playoffs. According to him, the roster is able to cope with the pressure amid the ongoing conflict with former coach Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen.
Madsen noted that the team’s goals for the decisive stage of the event are still pretty high, despite the not very favorable background surrounding the Danes.

To be honest, it’s difficult to play with so much noise and hate around. It’s not something new since we are used to pressure from before, when we were just playing. I’m used to this and 100% focused during the matches. Our goal for the playoffs is to show everything the team is capable of, regardless of the circumstances. What is happening around us cannot throw us off.
It is worth noting that before the start of the press conference, in-game leader Casper "cadiaN" Moller stated that the team would not answer the questions related to HUNDEN and his accusations against the Danish team. Moller went on to say that he and his teammates will only communicate on the case with the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) representatives, and not with the media.
Let us add that for Heroic, the ESL Pro League Season 14 playoffs will start on September 9 from the quarterfinals. The Danish roster will face the best team of the fnatic – Liquid matchup.
