According to BLAST Premier, Heroic was able to acquire the partner slot following a highly competitive and in-depth bidding process with a number of leading esports and Counter-Strike organizations showing an interest in it.

Heroic is making some big moves following its qualification for the PGL Antwerp Major 2022, as the it has acquired a permanent partner slot in the BLAST Premier circuit.

This ensures the organization an invite to each season of the BLAST Premier tournament similar to other partner teams like NAVI, FaZe Clan, G2 Esports, Astralis, BIG, Complexity Gaming, Evil Geniuses, Ninjas in Pyjamas, OG, Team Liquid, and Team Vitality.

The Danish esports organization acquired the partner slot from MIBR's parent company Immortals Gaming Club, who sold it during an auction that consisted of "a number of leading esports and Counter-Strike organizations," according to BLAST Premier.

Heroic has done well at the European RMR A, lifting its curse against NAVI by finally beating them in a series after more than two years, while also qualifying for the Antwerp Major simultaneously.

Now, the organization has followed up by obtaining a partner slot in the BLAST Premier circuit. The partner slot was acquired from Immortals Gaming Club who sold it to the Danish esports organization for an undisclosed amount following a "highly competitive bidding process".

BLAST Premier bids farewell to MIBR as partner team

This is not the first time that one of the twelve initial partner organizations has sold its permanent slot to another team or organization. Previously North American esports organization 100 Thieves had sold its slot to German esports organization BIG, following its exit from competitive CS:GO in December 2020.

Now Immortals Gaming Club has done the same, forsaking MIBR's slot in the BLAST Premier circuit. This is probably because of the team's declining performance, especially when it comes to their poor showing at the BLAST Premier tournaments for more than a year now.

CEO of Heroic - Joachim Haraldsen expressed that this is a massive milestone for the Heroic Group as it gives them a unique position amongst the biggest brands of the esports industry along with a platform for collaborative growth.

We’re delighted to welcome on board Heroic, they’ve proven through their performances on the server over the last few years, that they belong alongside the world’s elite of Counter-Strike. The level of interest, competition and investment shown for this slot highlights just how much BLAST Premier has grown in the last 12 months alone,” said Charlotte Kenny, Managing Director of BLAST Premier.
