Heroic with a resounding win over SK on Train
Heroic shocked SK in their first match at ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier, defeating the Brazilian side 16-5 on Train.
A three-piece from Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen secured Heroic the CT pistol on Train, with Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer's hat-trick in the following round setting up the underdogs for a great start to the match. Coming into the first gun round, João "felps" Vasconcellos was able to add four kills to his name, but Heroic's in-game leader replied once again, securing two crucial frags that, combined with the round timer, got his team 4-0 up.
After ecoing out, SK decided to go for a full-on execute on A in round seven, but niko secured two kills from the Z connector that allowed Heroic to retake the site and keep their clean sheet. SK finally got on board when Epitacio "TACO" de Melo burst out on B, but no momentum could be built as Jakob "JUGi" Hansen's AWP did work, getting key kills to make the score 9-1.
Another round win from SK was again quickly interrupted by Heroic as niko pulled out an unlikely round on B, picking up four kills in a 2v4 B site retake. The Brazilian side finished the first half with a total of four rounds, and, with the second pistol round going the way of the Danes as well, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's side was in a tight position starting their defensive side.
B site aggression was a perfect counter to what Heroic were trying to do in the first buy round, getting FalleN's side their fifth, but Patrick "es3tag" Hansen and co. were quick to bounce back and shut out the game 16-5.
