cadiaN pushes Heroic to win DreamHack Open Atlanta over Sprout

Heroic became the champions of DreamHack Open Atlanta after beating Sprout 2-0 (Train 16-9, Inferno 16-10) off the back of a fantastic performance from Casper "⁠cadiaN⁠" Møller.

After the semi-finals saw Sprout topple CR4ZY and Heroic beat Virtus.pro in close two-map series, the two winners locked horns in the grand final for the lion's share of the $100,000 prize pool.

Having already surpassed expectations at the event, Sprout continued to do well in the title decider with a fruitful start on their pick, Train, leading 3-0 off the back of a pistol round win as Terrorists. The Danes responded with three of their own and back and forth the two teams went, with Heroic eventually pulling away thanks to three consecutive retakes to get away with a 9-6 half.

Sprout quickly equalized things with another 3-0 start in the second half, but it proved pointless, as a close 2v2 win on A rocket-started Heroic's offense, which went on a seven-round streak to win the opening map 16-9.

cadiaN was in great form throughout the final

Starting as Terrorists, Marco "⁠Snappi⁠" Pfeiffer's squad got off the line first on Inferno with three unanswered rounds at the beginning before the two teams kept forcing each other to save multiple weapons, with Sprout coming out ahead of the economic battle in the 10th round to take the lead. By the end of the half, Heroic managed to take back control, stringing three together for a one-round advantage.

With cadiaN putting up four kills in the second pistol round, the Danes once again looked in commanding form after switching sides and went on to pick up a convincing victory, letting go of just three rounds for a 16-10, 2-0 triumph.

CadiaN was always one of those not much talekd about guys, but i always loved his IGLing actually back in Rogue with Hiko, they were able to beat some good teams with cadaiaN, nothing special, but was noticable, he is not a bad igl nor player, i guess maybe his attitude or communication is what kept other teams to avoid him, i dont know, but overall he knows his shit...

We were all young and stupid once ... Now he looks like a MAN, and he may have grown up and even become greater than ever as a teammate as well as a player. I don't think he even dreams about any other team right now!
2019-11-18 00:19
He seems to have carried some of that "American Trashtalk" with him. He was always that guy who was good but never really THAT good (like, to break into teams like Astralis, but I remember back in 2015 or so he was a stand-in for one event for them and did very well)

Oh ... So now the players' looks is of your interest? I may not be too impressed with your analysis of the game so far. You don't get to play for Team Liquid if you are "bad", and i don't think you need a model career outside the server to be a top professional CS GO player.

Where is the embarrassment in that? The top female gamers are good aimers. It's their team play, preparation and planning that is lacking - let's be real most don't have any big sponsors or ressources. You can find many insane aimers on a random ffa server that can outaim or equal many pros. I've been one myself in Quakeworld and Quake 3, but it's one thing to be the best on Endif or End in Quakeworld vs dm4 or dm2. The same obviously goes for CS.

Yep. The same was true in 1.6. Pros like f0rest and zonic were rarely the top2 players on DM-aim servers. Not even trace who was known as one of the most ridiculously skilled aimers in the history of the scene
2019-11-18 00:19
No they are certainly not good aimers, at all :D

2019-11-18 16:18
Never called anyone bot aimer, and the juliano clip is with an awp? XD even pre-nerf awp and everyone can make a good clip. If you are to have amazing aim, you need to do it consistently, and not just in random sprouts.
2019-11-18 19:29
This is so true. I’ve played against couple of pro girls. They weren’t like GOOD, but they could certainly aim well enough
2019-11-18 01:40
You said their teamwork and preparation is lacking but there are actually a couple more things lacking, like for example aim, gamesense, map awareness, crosshair placement, communication, pop flashes, smoke line-ups, nades, aim, aim, aim, aim and ofcourse, aim.

(when they spend 8 hours a day for years on a professional career, travelling all over the world ... yeah, right. It's so easy, isn't it?!) Or Bot this or Bot that player ... talking about top #200 players in the world out of millions ... And of course this one: "Flag and flair checks out!" as if Mr. Sherlock found out something really clever ... Yup! It's pitiful, pathetic, foolish, uneducated, underdeveloped. ;O)
