In terms of social media, he is quite inactive, especially on Instagram and Facebook, but the 25-year-old uses Twitter regularly. His roles in the team are main-AWP and IGL. Especially since his time at Heroic , the Dane has been doing a great job.
Otherwise, quite little is known about his private life and Casper tends to keep his private environment out of social media. Some posts with his mother indicate a close relationship to her. Numerous posts also show that he enjoys going out with friends in the evening and eating quality food.
cadiaN - Career
The Dane started his career with the Norwegian team OXzone in mid-2013 and was signed up by Team AGENT together with aizy and robiin about five months later. A few days later, however, the team was bought out by the Danish organisation Xapso. With this lineup, Casper participated in his first Major, DreamHack Winter 2013, and was signed by his first well-known organisation, Mousesports
, a little later.
From that point on, cadiaN was contracted to numerous different teams. His first extended stay, lasting around two years, was with Team Rogue. The time he spent with the American organisation was marked by numerous participations in qualifying tournaments. The highlight of this time was another Major appearance at the FACEIT Major: London 2018, which the team finished in 20th place and was eliminated by North .
However, the name North would make a lasting mark on cadiaN. Immediately after the Major participation, the Dane was signed by North as a replacement for IGL MSL. With a couple of wins against big teams like Vitality and NAVI , the Danish Tier-2 team showed up internationally. However, in mid-2019, cadiaN stepped down from the active lineup and was replaced by JUGi.
As part of a major reorganisation by the Danish organisation Heroic and the sale of IGL blameF, they decided on cadiaN as his successor. Together with four young Danish players, Casper made the big breakthrough in 2020. Numerous tournament successes and a first place in the HLTV ranking are the achievements of the year. CadiaN succeeded in forming a top team, from inexperienced, young players, which is both individually and tactically on a very high level.
