Heroic win IGL over VG.CyberZen

With a 3-1 win (Cobblestone 7-16, Overpass 19-17, Mirage 16-1, Dust2 16-10) over VG.CyberZen, Heroic have triumphed at the International Gaming League which took place in Shanghai, China, from November 20-27.

International Gaming League began with a GSL group stage, with only three teams taking part in Group A due to TYLOO dropping out. Heroic and VG.CyberZen topped their respective group, while paiN and Complexity finished second to finalize the semi-final teams.

The Danish-Swedish squad then defeated Complexity, winning Cobblestone and Mirage in a comfortable manner while Train went the other way after overtime, and VG.CyberZen bested paiN after three maps.


Heroic took the title in China

Today's grand final saw the Chinese starting off strong, grabbing Cobblestone in convincing fashion before Heroic snatched Overpass following overtime, with Valdemar "valde" Bjørn Vangså putting up a beastly performance (44-24, 1.68 rating).

Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer's team then decimated VG.CyberZen on Mirage 16-1 and finished the series with a superb T side on Dust2, where the 21-year-old played amazingly once again.

Is it the first international title for moddii and friis in CS:GO? It's not like it's a T1 tournament, but since they've been at it since pretty much the beginning of the scene, it's nice for them. But maybe I forgot a tournament somewhere.

Watching the live stream, Heroic guys were really happy after winning the match. Their adjustments need to be learned by VG (losing cbble, picked by Heroic themselves). Also valde is a GOD, amazing performance!!!
