Heroic stun Na`Vi in ICE Challenge opener

Heroic came back from a map down to beat Natus Vincere 2-1 in the opening match of the ICE Challenge.

The opening map of the series, Overpass, began with a strong start from Heroic, who jumped out to a 5-1 lead on the CT side after giving Na`Vi's players very little room to operate, with the Ukrainians' sole round coming off the back of a quad kill by Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev.

Things were starting to look ugly for Natus Vincere, but then Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev stepped up to the plate with three quick frags in a post-plant situation. That round marked the beginning of a great run from the Ukrainian giants, who shut down any chances of Heroic stringing rounds together, going into the break up 8-7.

Benjamin "blameF" Bremer raised eyebrows early in the second half as he opened up the A site with three frags in the pistol round. Heroic would not be able to build on that win, however, as the round was immediately traded back by Natus Vincere, who went on a flawless run to close out the map at 16-8, with s1mple ending the game on 30 frags.

Heroic move on to the upper bracket final

A 1v3 clutch by blameF in the opening round on Nuke set the tone for what would be a one-sided first half. Heroic's defence was breached for the first time eight rounds into the game in an anti-eco round, but they did not let that deter them and strolled to an 11-2 lead before Na`Vi responded with two rounds in a row.

Carrying their momentum into the second half, Heroic took the pistol round with a trio of kills by Daniel "mertz" Mertz to pile even more pressure on Na`Vi. The Ukrainian team still tried to respond, but their force-buy attempts were all rebuffed, leading to a quick conclusion to the game.

The decider map, Inferno, followed the same pattern of the previous two as Heroic claimed the pistol round despite s1mple picking up an ace as Na`Vi lost track of the bomb in the A site. Na`Vi hit back in the fourth round but there was no follow-up as Heroic replied on a very weak buy, punishing the Terrorists for a sloppy execution towards A.

With his team down 1-5, Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko called a tactical pause in an effort to halt Heroic's momentum. The timeout did not alter the course of the game, however, as Na`Vi continued to look bereft of ideas and were constantly outplayed in post-plant situations, ending the half with just two rounds.

Na`Vi will have to fight for their tournament lives in the lower bracket

A clean sweep earned Natus Vincere their first pistol round of the series and a way back into the game. Na`Vi kept the Terrorists at bay with a water-tight defence and restored parity at 13-13, putting the pressure on Heroic's players.

It looked like Na`Vi had the map in the bag, but all of a sudden they lost their grip on the game. Heroic got their first round of the half with a B execution and denied s1mple the 1v2 clutch in the following round following a scrappy affair in A. The Danes would not let the series point go to waste and put the match to bed after taking control of the B site with ease.

It's hard for a player to leave regional team , due to communication stuff and all . Since navi is a Russian/Ukraine lineups is hard for S1mple to leave the team .

Yeah , that's what I am saying , "he didn't liked to play living so far from his home and family" It never suited him . He is good with navi , it's just the team mates Soon after Edward and Zeus (we know this year) will be benched let's see what S1mple decides then.
2019-02-05 18:26
Zeus won’t be benched- announcing his plan to retire this year =/= being benched
2019-02-05 18:49
Living in the US is a LOT further than living in, say, Germany. Being in the US drastically limits visiting family, due to expenses and travel time. Anyway, to be clear, I'm not interested in s1mple leaving Navi, I was just pointing out he's played beyond Russia/Ukraine.

It would be awesome. Also nothing seems to have good chemistry with mouz, because his stats when he was standin were nice and if i remember correctly they won the cup or the qualification with him. And if i got right the mouz changes they are releasing Chris and Styko. So filling it with nothing and simple (which sadly wont happen) would be cool.

It's the way he constructs his sentences, writes and repeats the same comments over in threads and how he argues. To me it's either a 8-12 year old child (which I find less likely on hltv.org) or someone with a mental disability.

2019-02-05 15:29
they need to play some lan matches to. your navi team is to weak and dont even have a decent map pool. yes they are good at edging close wins but they are not favorite against astralis on any map and cache/nuke are free maps for them

2-week bootcamp, lose first match at the Major and another final for s1mple, and after that, we'll see. But putting any stock in Heroic from now is complete dumbassery... btw "your navi team" lmao
2019-02-05 15:34
They haven't played lan matches for more than a month, so they have to adapt before major starts. I mean every top team does it, look at astralis,faze,liquid they purposefully participated in that shit tournament IBP , but only because vacation kinda destroy the rhythm of the team
2019-02-05 17:08
Does the GG.bet and Navi have any ties? :)
2019-02-05 15:29
Sponsor of both teams ;) Not shady at all Actually all 4 teams in this tournament is sponsored by GG.bet. What a shady fuck fest
2019-02-05 15:38
sponsor is one thing but I was thinking on the owner site. maybe some of the navi owners are involved with gg.bet also esport is starting to get shady as fuck after it got money involved

But tbh I'm happy for Heroic that they got the win here, especially friberg who is someone I've been very critical of in the past - but now it seems he can hang with the big boys again, and that is awesome.

2019-02-05 16:33
Simple has little impact than these stats suggest, people don't watch the game of CS they either hold down tab or look at the stats page and form their opinion from there. He has +30 frags over his team mates because he saves and they chase his gun down or he goes for retake takes out 3 then dies or saves. If he got these frags at the start of the round it would be very hard for navi to lose. He's the most skilled but his impact isn't great.
2019-02-05 16:36
The HLTV Rating 2.0 actually takes in other aspects of the game into consideration as well, along with frags. It is not solely based on frags. But, sure.
2019-02-05 16:40
really? i saw 3 clutch attempts with 3 kills who got denied by friberg at the end. That alone impacts enemy's economy ...Well i do agree there are more factors who impact game result ,but lets be honest Frags are huge impact in game too. I wonder how many times he ended up 1 vs 5 1 vs 4 with team dying like flies without almost 0 impact
2019-02-05 18:12
Just cause he doesnt win doesnt mean his impact is low, it means there was no impact from others
