In conclusion, Heroic extended their support to ESIC's decision against HUNDEN while specifying that the contract signed by him mentioned that, "all IP produced within the contract period is owned by Heroic."
While the Heroic-HUNDEN controversy has come to an end from ESIC's perspective, the legal action taken by the organization against HUNDEN is still pending.
On the other hand, HUNDEN came forward to claim that some of his former teammates from Heroic were involved and aware of him using the infamous CS:GO coaching bug.
This claim has been backed by popular CS:GO analyst and talent, Jacob "Pimp" Winneche, who had the chance to review the documents which were obtained by the Danish publication.
