Heroic sweep Vitality to complete ESL One Cologne miracle run

The world No 2 was outclassed in this one-sided affair as the Danes required just three maps to come out on top.

Heroic won ESL One Cologne's European division after crushing Vitality 3-0 in the grand final of the $325,000 tournament. The Danish team, who had broken into the top 10 in the rankings only this week, made light work of the world No 2 to complete what Casper "⁠cadiaN⁠" Møller had already described as a "miracle run" before Sunday's clash.

"In 2015, I was on the desk in Cologne, only dreaming about reaching a final," the Danish in-game leader said after the match. "Now, we're the champions. What a road for this team, what a road for me. I'm speechless."

Vitality will look back at this match and wonder what hit them. Things began to fall apart in the map draft as they picked Inferno instead of Overpass or Vertigo - a decision that even surprised cadiaN, who had predicted a 3-1 victory for this team. The French team came close to winning that map, only to spectacularly collapse and let a 13-8 lead slip. The other two maps were rather straightforward as Heroic played as close to perfect as possible - a performance that showed just how far they have come since bringing Nicolai "⁠HUNDEN⁠" Petersen in as coach, just four months ago.

This defeat means that Vitality once again have to settle for second place after losing last year's ESL One Cologne final to Liquid, back when LANs were still a thing. It's also worth noting that this is the third consecutive runner-up finish by the French team, who had lost the BLAST Premier and the cs_summit 6 titles to Complexity and BIG, respectively, though those two finals had gone the full distance.

The best-of-five clash began on Mirage, one of Vitality's worst maps in recent history (40% win percentage in the last three months). Heroic went behind early on but quickly recovered, winning the third round on the back of a trio of kills by Johannes "⁠b0RUP⁠" Borup. After getting their economy back on track, Vitality put together a string of rounds as Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut and Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon both stepped up to the plate, but Heroic continued their methodical approach and dominated the rest of the half to go up 9-6.

The second half brought more of the same as Heroic remained on the front foot and continued adding to their lead. Their streak of rounds was briefly interrumpted when Cédric "⁠RpK⁠" Guipouy pulled off a 1v2 clutch on the B site, but that was merely a small bump in the road as the Danes immediately picked themselves up and secured the map.

Heroic win ESL One Cologne and $150,000 - the team's biggest prize

Heroic picked up where they left off as they jumped out to a 6-1 lead on the CT side of Inferno. The Danes lost their grip on the game as Vitality grew into the game, with the two teams separated by just one round heading into the break.

As expected, Vitality came out of the break firing from all cylinders, winning six rounds without response to get within touching distance of victory. It looked like the French team had the game under control, but then Heroic flipped the switch: the Danes picked up the pace and ruthlessly prised the Vitality defense apart with some flawless hits on both sites, going on an 8-0 run to lock up the map.

More misery was piled on Vitality, who lost control of proceedings after going 4-0 up as Heroic went on another dominant run reminiscent of their brilliant Inferno rally. After losing eight rounds in a row, the French team still pulled two back thanks to ZywOo before the final round went the way of Heroic.

Martin "⁠stavn⁠" Lund opened up the action in the second half with a trio of kills in a retake to kick Heroic further into the lead. Vitality responded by winning the first full gun round, but there was no follow-up as the Danes hit back immediately following some impressive Desert Eagle shots by René "⁠TeSeS⁠" Madsen. Heroic went on to hit championship point, with b0RUP providing the finishing blow just a few rounds later with a quad-kill in a semi-buy from his team.

Apex losing his 3rd final on his own. Zero impact as an IGL or as a fragger. Constantly dying first on the CT side without being able to trade or hold any angles. Well played Heroic. Apex should retire.

2020-08-31 04:31
I thought he did a good job getting them there though. Hard to find a good IGL. How many times did Astralis choke at finals before they broke out? I know they had a few heart-breakers.
2020-08-30 23:49
still he's very doing good everybody on hltv thought vitality would die or drop to +top15 Maintaining it to #2 is still an achievement, especially with a young misutaa coming from subtop
2020-08-31 01:55
misutaaa is the next jackz. he's got insane aim as a young person but ends up dying first alot of the time and becomes underrated

Bo5 series has no bans later on so pickorder isnt all that relevant.
2020-08-30 22:27
yes but if they picked vertigo first they would have gone at least to a 4th map

It actually could have been relevant if only to break tbe momentum Heroic had developed in the first map. Vitality picking inferno played into Heroic's hands very nicely.
2020-08-31 06:05
Actually in a bo5 you can give a huge advantage to the team picking first if the team picking second picks a map that both teams like. Before you know it, you’re 0-2 on opponent’s 2nd pick and you can go down lightning fast...just as happened here.

They do not give a fuck if its a blowout or a 5 mapper. You still cannot lose 3 maps. I am not going to be guessing why vitality picked the way they did but veto would not have change the outcome.

2020-08-30 21:45
AHAHHAHA 240 maps and 600 AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA check majors XD
2020-08-30 21:51
you have really no arguments left like age is his fault you asked where we was on lan i showed you just by the fact you are saying that he is "lucky" i should end that little talk here but i love having fun of ukrainian s1mple fanboys fr
2020-08-30 21:54
i have no arg? what? 240 maps are much less than 600 lul
2020-08-30 21:56
and?
2020-08-30 21:58
what and? with 600 maps u will make high rating harder than with 240 (even with 600 maps s1mple has 0.02 rating less)
2020-08-30 22:01
why is that? 240 maps isnt 4 maps or whatever.
2020-08-30 22:05
maybe cuz 240 maps = 2 years 600 maps 5 years lul in 2 years zywoo wont have 1.3 rating(1.2 max)
2020-08-30 22:13
ohhh cuz no luck yez? )
2020-08-30 22:17
yes and cuz fluke 2019-2020 for zywoo
2020-08-30 22:18
of corse men of corse)
2020-08-30 22:21
yes, its truth
2020-08-30 22:21
bad bait ffs If you are really thinking that being highest rated player on pro scene since 2017 is "fluke" then i feel sorry for you
2020-08-30 22:22
sicne 2017? what? zywoo played vs t3 teams before 2019 lmao s1mple plays vs t1 sicne 2015-2016
2020-08-30 22:24
i mean that you must be mentally damaged if you are really thinking things you did wrote and yes, zywoo had 1.42 in 2017 and noone ever did beat it up also in fpl won 3 times in a row with highest winrate in history of this hub
2020-08-30 22:27
zywoo had 1.42 in 2017, so????? he played vs t3-4 teams it doesnt mean anything
2020-08-30 22:39
240 is a high enough number to be called a proper sample for analysis.
2020-08-30 22:28
in 2 years yes but in 5 no, zywoo wont have 1.3 rating in 2 years
2020-08-30 22:38

your?
2020-08-31 20:21
#189 is right tho. I know you are a big fan of s1mple and probably can't get over the fact that there is another player that is as good as him and mixing your guesses, that aren't based on anything, just a blind prediction, really makes the whole discussion become derailed. You can continue to argue to that: "zyWoO iS An aVeRagE pLaYeR" (which he clearly isn't, top 1 2019) and so on, but it won't change the fact that your whole argument is just an assumption.
2020-09-01 06:59
u sure? zywoo plays only 1.5 years on t1 and s1mple 4 years u really think zywoo is better than s1mple?
2020-09-01 12:03
looking back at simple 2.5 years ago I feel a smiliar vibe from Zywoo. Im not calling him better, I call him being on the same level as s1mple.
2020-09-01 18:43
You are mixing stats with guesses to your liking. The whole discussion becomes derailed. I have little say about who is better, I am merely saying 240 maps is enough.
2020-08-30 22:44
240 is not enough for 600 maps
2020-08-31 00:42
English please?
2020-08-31 01:30
what u didnt understand? 600 maps with high rating is much harder to keep than 240

How is zywoo’s rating better when k/d and ADR are both better for shox. I thought ADR was super important for rating. Anyways, clown showing from vitality. They keep choking finals. Mitsuta and apex on the chopping block? Look for international players i guess.
2020-08-30 21:43
Zywoo had the better impact kills. Tbh only him made impact kills. Others were shit.
2020-08-30 21:48
Shox got a number of frags in 1 v X situations he didn't win, which can bump your ADR and frags up while reducing overall impact.
2020-08-30 22:04

India c0nsc10us
Shox had a higher ADR mainly by virtue of exit frags. He rarely got the opening or impact kills during the match. That said, no one in Vitality can actually claim to have played well during any of the three maps.
2020-08-31 06:11
But who'll be the mvp? Zywoo? Cause his stats are undisputable.

Congratulations Heroic Shockingly onesided. Misutaaa doesn't belong into tier one team, def. not into vitality, at least not now for sure. And he played 100 maps this year, so the sample is huge. He should be on 3rd spot (after zywoo and shox) but his stats are by far weakest of all vit. players. One more thing. I wanna know how much HUNDEN did live in game.
2020-08-30 21:44
Quite a lot i think. He is without a doubt the biggest CS brain ever, just not a very good fragger. Having him directing the team, without having to care about fragging is a deadly constellation. Dont think they would have been able to do it in a normal setting.

How is it a fluke? Heroic played some of the best CS ive ever seen. Its just a different format, m8. Thanks to COVID we now have a setup where you can use the coach as a stratcaller/igl in-game, and the igl can focus more on fragging. The perfect setup for GOD HUNDEN! But Yeah, doubtful if they can perform to that level on lan. Only time will tell.

Vitality should kick apex misutaa and the coach too. I saw 0 impact from the coach on inferno. Or on others map too actually. Bunch of paycheck thiefs. Built new french team around zywoo & shoxie. GGWP Heroic.
2020-08-30 22:06
true except for the coach imo
2020-08-30 22:39
They used 4 tactical timeout. 2 of them when they up 13-9. That bald coach made 0 adjustment on B site defense. Vitality still run a same set up and get overwhelmed every single time. I dont know exactly that coach did on those tactical timeouts. He needs to go.

Vitality can't do any changes. Let's check it out: ZywOo, RpK, and shoxie are irremovable from the get go. So only apEX and misutaaa remain. apEX: acceptable or at least regular IGL atm, also u have to search anoter proper igl and there is no one. misutaaa: recent acquisition who couldn't prove himself in a single LAN thus far. Unless u're talking about strategic changes, who is going?
2020-08-31 00:34
For me they should remove RpK, apEX and misutaaa and build a new lineup around ZywOo and shox. For me that's the best thing that could happen for them.

It was worrying that TeSes was nowhere near the level from the G2 match, but with 3 other players stepping up, and with great leadership from Cadian & Hunden, the picture was much the same as against G2. Heroic used to lose to french CS - Hunden is the difference. He reads them like a book.
2020-08-30 23:52
Congrats to Heroic. They played really well this series and deserved the win. Although I want to mention Vitality aren't even trying in the 3rd map, it's like they decided to give up altogether. G2 put up a greater fight and mental fortitude against Heroic.

2020-08-31 12:18
You have to be kidding, writing stuf like that. They have the biggest brain in all of CS behind them. There was nothing random about this. They were competitive in every map they played. They made all the tier1 teams look like flukes.
2020-08-31 18:13
They usually go out from the groups and now suddenly wins ESL ONE cologne. It is a fluke and I'm not denying that they outplayed every single tier 1 team but this was the only 1 tournament where everyone from Heroic played great and won the trophy which is not likely to repeat or happen anytime soon.

This could came out as a surprise for those who do not follow the game, although I can say I was expecting more from Vitality, even if they have absolute trash as coaches and IGL. As for Heroic, that was refreshing CS, refreshing players and leadership...! Stavn, Borup and Teses were a pleasure to see. Cadian? Personally following Cadian's career since he was a teen and teen didn't suit him as a leader, although anyone with a good eye could anticipate he could grow like a vintage port wine and I'm glad he did! Then we have Hunden and it seems that the whole mix have really worked out pitch perfect. Let's see what near future will bring to them! GG

Cologne was clean, but HUNDEN is a fucking idiot for abusing it in Dreamhack Masters. It's very sad. :(

2020-09-01 06:13
I think the whole heroic team should be banned. Because they were aware of him using it.

One of the Heroic team members (coach) was caught cheating in this tournament. Strip their victory and bump all the other teams up a spot.

yeah sure CHEATERS they all deserve to be banned for cheating, not only the coach( if some of you really believe players werent aware of the exploit being used by their coaches)

ofc they knew about the exploit. same thing happens when 1 player is banned for wallhack (or other cheat). they pretend they don't know about the cheats, but ride that train until it derails.
