Heroic qualify for EPICENTER 2019 over mousesports

Heroic have qualified for EPICENTER 2019 after a 2-0 victory over mousesports in the Europe closed qualifier grand final.

The two-day tournament saw eight teams battle it out in a best-of-three single-elimination bracket, with the likes of mousesports, North and CR4ZY in attendance.

mousesports secured a spot in the closed qualifier’s final after dominant series victories over CR4ZY and SMASH in the previous rounds, which included a 16-0 thrashing of Rokas "EspiranTo" Milasauskas and co. Meanwhile, Heroic set up a match with mousesports following wins over GamerLegion and Danish rivals North on the other side of the bracket.

Heroic qualify for EPICENTER 2019

The grand final kicked off on Vertigo, Heroic’s map pick, where the two teams locked horns early on, which ultimately saw the Danish side narrowly edge ahead 8-7 at the halfway mark. Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer and his squad stormed to a 14-8 lead as the second half ensued, with match point following soon after a string of rounds from mousesports. Despite their best efforts, the European mixture could not tie things up as Heroic shut down the comeback swiftly to pick up the opening map 16-13.

mousesports set out to even the score on Mirage and got off to a great start thanks to a Finn "karrigan" Andersen triple kill, which paved the way for a 9-6 advantage for the European mixture as the two squads swapped sides. Heroic stepped up their game on the defence, however, as the Danish squad grinded out a 16-14 victory, with Martin "stavn" Lund spearheading the comeback.

2019-11-01 11:00
When’s the last time they played a bo3, because right now faze would definitely beat them in a bo3.

3 weeks ago, 2-0, at esl pro league.
2019-11-01 15:32
Yeah I think Faze will be much better against them now since niko is finally coming out of his slump. So if cold Olof and niko play well they should be able to make quick work of them, broky is usually good but rain has been terrible.

He is literally rated the second best igl during an interview session with other igl but i got to agree that his fragging power is real bad
2019-10-31 23:33
Fragging power is as as bad as his igl habilities. Ppl keep thinking is 2015 where he was decent because the small cs scene. now he should be in tier 4-5 teams even considering the retirement. Wasted spot in mouz

2019-11-02 18:30
Do you call this an argument ?: "His igl abilities is nearly on par with gl1ve" This is what a fanboy would say about karrigan. you dont deserveme to take you seriously. /close EDIT: What is the point to bring fallen to the conversation? STFU little fanboy at least FallleN is far better than karrigan with his 0 Majors xDDDD
