Heroic edge Astralis in Group C
Heroic edged Astralis in the initial round of Group C with a 16-13 victory on Train, securing a place in the winners' match against TyLoo which will take place shortly.
Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye's quad-kill stopped the streak, but Astralis' economy got reset right afterwards, costing them three more rounds. Towards the end of the half, Finn "karrigan" Andersen's squad picked up the pace, winning four more rounds out of the six remaining for 5-10 at halftime.
Heroic push on to the winners' match on the back of valde's performance
A convincing pistol round going Astralis' way closed the sizable gap to a single round when they also bested Heroic in the first gunround. Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander's team got the next three however, pushing themselves to 14-9.
karrigan and Nicolai "device" Reedtz helped avoid match point with three and four kills in two separate rounds and Heroic eventually found themselves on low money at 14-13, taking a timeout. They decided to go for a quasi-buy and a quick execute towards A, earning the match point and a round against a poor buy, as Heroic took a 16-13 win.
