Jembty left Heroic

Jere "Jembty" Kauppinen announced he's leaving the Heroic squad, which was previously playing under the banner of Omaken Sports. Jembty explained that the decision to leave the team was made by mutual consent of the parties, and he parted on good terms with his teammates. The Finnish eSports athlete added that next month his contract with the club will expire and he will officially become a free agent.

I am officially free agent now, my contract is expiring next month so I will be looking for a team. I would like to thank PaG3, Teabone, vazku and ballin for being a great teammates over the year. This was a mutual agreement inside the team since we needed some changes. Felt like from the beginning we had different opinions and now it made sense to make changes since we missed PGI.S. No bad blood between us, sometimes you have different opinions and how you wanna handle things. We gave it a go but did not work out this time. I take a lot of responsibility for not succeeding better with this team, but I learned a lot for the future as a teammate and as an IGL. Also wanna thank Omaken Sport and Heroic for being great orgs and Noobwork for believing us! That being said I am really hungry to find a new team and make to PGC this year.

Jembty began his eSports career in PUBG in 2017. He has represented such top-level teams as FaZe Clan, Team Liquid and TSM.  He has moved to Omaken Sports, who became Heroic, April last year. Finn has won over $150,000 in prize money in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds throughout his career and has won several prestigious trophies such as PUBG Europe League 2019 - Kick-off Cup, DreamHack PUBG Showdown Austin 2018, and StarSeries & i-League PUBG Season 1.

Recall that Jembty's twin brother, Samu "Sambty" Kauppinen - announced his retirement from competitive PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds over a year ago.
