Heroic send Virtus.pro packing

Heroic have eliminated Virtus.pro at ESL One Cologne after beating the Poles 16-9 on Cobblestone.

Virtus.pro and Heroic, both of whom lost their first two matches, squared off on Cobblestone with their tournament lives on the line. Virtus.pro started on the T-side and tried an A-site smoke execute in the pistol round which didn't work out as Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen got a quad kill to secure it for Heroic (1-0).

Heroic stopped Virtus.pro in the first weapon round to lead 4-0. Two rounds later, Heroic won another weapon round and achieved this without losing any players. In the first six rounds, Virtus.pro players got nine kills in total.

Heroic ended VP's tournament

Although the Poles got an entry kill on Drop, Patrick "es3tag" Hansen and niko stopped them in their tracks to extend their lead to 7-0. Virtus.pro got their first round after Paweł "byali" Bieliński's opening kill, trailing 8-1. Heroic's response came two rounds later when Jakob "JUGi" Hansen got two opening kills with the AWP, making it 9-2. The Danish team led 13-2 at halftime.

Virtus.pro won the second half pistol round and the anti-ecos but Heroic pierced into the A-site in the first weapon round to make it 14-5. The Danish team could have attained ten match rounds but they lost to a full eco from Virtus.pro (14-6). Virtus.pro then lost a full buy and went on to lose the map 16-9, getting eliminated from the tournament.

They werent rofl. Astralis was clear #1.

even tho vp smoked astralis like 16-3 9-16 and 16-5 tho
2017-07-05 19:18
it was like two weeks after they just lost to astralis at a major final, how dumb are you to think that they were better than astralis at that time? lol

used to be a big VP supporter but I got the feeling that they take these tournaments for granted and they don't seem motivated as 2 years ago. Everyone can beat everyone these days and all that fresh blood want to prove themself. Go home and rethink!

You can not say that about ESL One Cologne, especially when VP received gratitude letter from ESL before the event, maybe if it's a smaller tournament but ESL Cologne has been around for a while and kinda got its prestige. I hope they do well on the major but imo it will be a achievement for them even if they keep their legend status
2017-07-05 18:41
the problem is that the level expected from vp may be something that we won't get to see ever again. maybe it's time that we all accept their decline. somehow they always seem to do good at majors.

Yeah, I think everything will be decided after the major moreover it will be on homesoil if that's any advantage at all. Like pasha said, they need miracle which will only appear if they got lucky on their road to 1/4 finals.
2017-07-06 12:48
the home soil factor is basically absent for vp. last year they were eliminated on their own map against an already declining NiP in Katowice.

Haters just wait until the Major starts, if they also fail there then you can laugh and hate but I think they'll surprise everyone in the Majors like "We didn't give a fuck about the tournaments before, all we wanted was the Majors"
2017-07-05 12:59
won't happen, they are just bad they were bad in the last important events too, like IEM katowice and Clash for Cash (ez money) and WESG (also ez money) I'm pretty sure they will go out in groups at the major again
2017-07-05 13:01
they got to semis at wesg then got to the finals of the major...
2017-07-05 19:38
WESG with only tier 2 teams, major was fluke
2017-07-06 16:37
so i assume vegas and any other event they do well in is a fluke? lmfao

wtf are you delusional fanboy talking about luck. your team is the shittiest and luckiest team out of the scene. yes VP sucks horrible at the time but from Starladder season 1 2016 (when they won their first tournament vs Navi) till Dream Hack Lad Vegas 2017 they were dropping Semis, Finals and winning tournament. while your team didn't even make it out of the groups.

are you new? pasha and snax has been awping the whole year and pasha was doing good with it
2017-07-05 13:26
Yes, he was. Now he sucks with it.
2017-07-05 14:00
nah he had some good frags vs immortals and sk. you can't deny that. vs heroic he was quite weird some good frags but mostly awful
2017-07-05 14:04
Vp played way better when snax was awping more than pasza, thats for sure, even sadokist and henry said something like that. In my opinion pasza and awp are done since 2016, he should play as the rifler thats all.
2017-07-06 02:52
nah pasha with the awp has contributed really alot rounds imo. Pasha is a good rifler, snax is a good awper but snax's rifling is way better than pasha's and in terms of awping they are same. so it would be a waste to see snax awping more than pasha. either they are awping together as a ct or just pasha. vp played better when snax wasn't igling and to be honest snax has struggled alot since las vegas
2017-07-06 03:11
It just my opinion you dont have to agree with me. For me vp were top1-2 when neo was igl and snax was main awper. Have a good day, cya in krakow

wtf that's so retarded... ofc they don't give a flying fuck about immortals' hype, VP is in a major crisis and that's probably what is on his mind...... Ofc they know their power, they've been pro's for ages.. But as he follows it up with "We know we can also go out in Group 0-3" :)))) But tbh it's expected from retarded BR's to get instantly triggered cuz they only speakeh da engrish

Sad to see VP with a 0-3 tournament. But damn nice with a victory for Heroic :D
2017-07-05 14:25
ofc they will be unmotivated, too much online leagues y, they got tired exhausted. everyone is organizing online league today. so fucking bullshit, and all leagues have big prizepools. valve should restrict online leagues and to focus on lan games. it is getting boring. vp v envy major match, but they have played 10 times each other between previous month. this is fuckin bullshit

You fukin retards :D wait for the Major every T1 team is throwing check the first 4 teams now: 1.NiP 2. OpTic 3. Liquid 4. mousesports All the teams who have qualified to Major, maybe except mousesports, are preparing for the Major. Krakow might be VP's last major or at least in the current line up. Stay calm and bet against VP (until major) I've got so far hundreds of $ EZ money my friends.

So sad to see a team like VP going through that. I know that every team has its ups and downs, but the poles went downhill so fast ... I really hope that they become the team they once were
