MAD Lions benched HUNDEN at the beginning of March and brought Asger "AcilioN" Larsen to replace him at the in-game leader role. This roster change was met with a lot of questions from the CS:GO community, but it seems both parties have gained from it.
HUNDEN released a statement about his new venture in the world of CS:GO and what helped influence his decision:
Finally I took the step that I've wanted to take for so long. Now, when I was offered the chance to coach such a talented team, it was easy for me to finally make up my mind. I'm looking forward to doing what I'm best at, and that is using my brain and create a masterplan to make Heroic shine, and finally make them go deep in the rankings again. The future looks bright, I'm looking forward to finally work with niko and b0rup again. I have always wanted to be a part of HEROIC, and now I'm the head coach - and I will do my best to show the best HEROIC anyone has ever seen!
