mousesports qualify for cs_summit 2 after beating Heroic
mousesports have booked their place at cs_summit 2 after defeating Heroic 2-0 (16-4 on Cobblestone, 16-9 on Inferno) in the LOOT.BET Cup 2 grand final.
Following the end of the 22-team group stage, eight squads advanced to the single-elimination playoffs. With a spot at cs_summit 2 on offer, Heroic and mousesports battled it out in the qualifier's grand final after beating Valiance and Vega Squadron, respectively, in the semi-final stage.
With Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev stepping into Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný's shoes, the European mixture was off to a great start, securing an 11-4 half-time lead while playing as Terrorists on Cobblestone. Chris "chrisJ" de Jong's men kept pressing on and eventually locked down the map with a flawless CT side.
Next up was Inferno, Heroic's map pick, with mousesports securing a quick 6-2 lead despite not being able to follow up their T-side pistol win. In the ninth round, Heroic looked set to get back in the game on an extremely shoddy buy, but Martin "STYKO" Styk crushed their hopes with an impressive 1v5 clutch, paving the way for his team to secure a 10-5 lead.
With yet another pistol round win, mousesports hit 12-rounds on the board, but Heroic did not want to throw in the towel and responded with a successful CZ-buy. The Danes followed that up with a few more round wins, but mousesports would not let a comeback happen and took the map, 16-9, to book their place at cs_summit 2.
