Xizt after PGL Major Stockholm 2021: "Hopefully, I can continue as Heroic coach"
Richard "Xizt" Landström, an analyst of Heroic, who served as the team's coach during PGL Major Stockholm 2021, wants to continue to lead the squad as a full-fledged coach. In a conversation with a journalist from Pley.gg, the Swedish specialist noted that now his future role in the team remains uncertain.
I’m super proud of the guys making it to the semifinals in the first Major in two years. They have been through so much the last year with the scandals and all that, and coming in here playing as good as they did, is something I’m super proud of.
It’s a huge difference being a coach. But standing behind the guys as a coach here at the Major was very fun and I’ve learned so much, and hopefully, I can continue doing that. I guess we will have to wait and see.
Xizt was introduced as Heroic’s analyst a month after retiring from his career as a professional CS:GO player. With the eminent Swede on board, the Danish team finished in the 3-4th place at PGL Major Stockholm 2021.
BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021 will be the next tournament for Heroic. The LAN championship with a prize pool of $425,000 will be held in Copenhagen from November 24 to 28.
