Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
Martin "trace" Bang Heldt (born July 1, 1990) is a Danish retired professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Counter-Strike player. Starting out in the Danish Counter-Strike scene, trace was known as a high-class aimer and was at his peak, in mTw, considered to be one of the best players at the time. Before joining the famous mTw.dk, the best Danish team of all time, trace played under several good teams on the Danish scene, including fearme, ATS-Gaming, Spirits of Amiga,  wooSai  and MoD. In 2010, he and mTw.dk was the second best team in the world, only with Natus Vincere above them. 2010 was a year, where most of the international event had the Ukrainians on the top of the podium, with the Danes right behind them.
In 2009, trace joined mTw.dk replacing Mohammed 'MJE' Eid, who left for retirement.  Trace won his first-ever event with the Danish giants, gaining the top spot at the small Danish LAN SLAP LIVE#19. Later, Oliver 'minet' Minet replaced Jonas 'whimp' Svendsen, and the mTw.dk of 2009-2010 was complete.
During his stint with mTw.dk, the team managed to win both Season II and Season III of EPS Nordic before the disbandment of the tournament. Even though the Danish powerhouse was, by many, considered the best team in the world at that time, the Danes were forever placed second at almost all events. Among these second places include placings from high-caliber tournaments such as DreamHack Winter 2009, SEC 2010, DreamHack Winter 2010, World Cyber Games 2010, IEM Season V European Championship Finals and many more.
The chapter of the great Danes of mTw.dk ended after finishing 3rd in their last event, IEM Season VI Global Challenge New York, despite having to field two stand-ins throughout the tournament, HLTV.org's very own Marc 'Nix0n' Winther in the group stage and later Christian 'turkizh' Bindslev in the playoffs.
After the fall of the Danish powerhouse mTw.dk, trace joined up with Timm 'ArcadioN' Henriksen and Xapso, later known as eSrael.dk, before joining SK Gaming. However, after some disappointing results, such as a 4th place at the IEM Season VI World Championship and a 5-6th finish at Copenhagen Games 2012, the team decided to remove trace. However, trace said to the Danish website XplayN.com that the communication was the main problem, and that was what lead to the kick.
Later that year, trace joined his fellow countrymen Finn 'karrigan' Andersen and Michael 'Friis' Jørgensen in Fnatic. Having just won Copenhagen Games 2012, fnatic looked strong, and the team continued to dominate the 1.6 scene, winning GameGune 2012, PGS 2012 and DreamHack Bucharest 2012 before making the switch to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
After achieving minimal success in Global Offensive with Fnatic, trace decided to retire from professional Counter-Strike in July 2013, citing his lack of motivation and general liking of the game as the main reason.
