cadiaN's effort not enough as Astralis beat Heroic in DreamHack Open Fall

The 25-year-old in-game leader put up some impressive numbers in this action-packed Danish derby.

Astralis got their DreamHack Open Fall campaign off to a great start as they edged past Heroic 2-1 to join G2 in Group B's winners' match. In this clash between the current top two teams in the world, Astralis were made to work hard to come out on top as Casper "⁠cadiaN⁠" Møller fought tooth and nail to keep his team alive, finishing the match with a series-high 1.43 rating.

The match began with a banger of a Vertigo game as Astralis came back from 9-14 down to equalise the score in the last round of regulation. The first three overtimes could not determine a winner, but then Lukas "⁠gla1ve⁠" Rossander's charges won four in a row to lock down the map.

cadiaN was Heroic's top performer on all three maps

Heroic looked a different side on Train as their double AWP setup with cadiaN and Martin "⁠stavn⁠" Lund with the Big Green proved very effective against the Astralis offense. After switching sides, Astralis still attempted a response, but Heroic quickly got into their stride and wrapped things up.

It all came down to Inferno, where only one round separated the two teams at the break as recovered from a slow start to their T side. Heroic came out of the break looking brighter and won three in a row to bring the scoreline to an 11-7 advantage, but then Astralis put up a resolute defensive performance and held the Terrorists off without much concern.

2020-10-16 11:07
Poor dev1ce cuckboys have to pick out 1 map l0l. There are several series where Dev1ce does shit... you have to individually pick out a s1mple map lel.
2020-10-16 12:47
every player has plenty of shit series. stop being such an idiot. this is just crazy because of how dogshit that map was, obviously hes gonna mention a 0.3 more often than a 0.8 or smthing
2020-10-16 13:55
and device had at least a 0.14 better rating than s1mple on nuke? logic.
2020-10-16 14:05
Logic is you can pick any individual map and say they played badly if their team got fucked... what is hard to understand about that? There are several series where both players have shit maps but pick it up in the other two, and there are also a few series where they have shitty series. Picking out 1 map where the team gets fucked doesnt prove any point?? The fact you have to pick out a bad map shows how good someone is.
2020-10-16 14:09
"The fact you have to pick out a bad map shows how good someone is." why does the same not work for device? he misses a shot and half the forums is talking about for a day. he has a short slump and everyone says he was shit for the past year or so. oh wait, you dont like him, so what works for someone else doesnt necessarily work for him even if its the exact same situation. also wondering why you still didnt reply to the ecofragging chart :)
2020-10-16 14:20
OFcourse the same applies to dev1ce... i didnt say s1mple because i was talking about both. As to the ecofragging chart i got my statistics wrong, it was the same source as your twitter account but it only recorded it for IEM new york 2017 and i mis-read it. My point is dev1ce is great, definitly one of the best of all time, but s1mple just does stuff nobody else, he frags like mad on top of carrying his rubbish team- and he's done that on a few roasters with different teammates, dev1ce hasnt proven to be effective if he isnt with his core. Not his fault but still in my eyes it takes some credibility from him. Magisk and dupreeh have been sensational for just as long and some would argue are more effective than dev1ce. You can trust dev1ce to drop 20 but how often will he single handedly win games alone compared to Zywoo/s1mple?
2020-10-16 14:27
i never said s1mple is not the GOAT. the only "hate" posts i make about him are either baits or just jokes. hes the most skilled player of all time. you cant really say he has the aim of niko, the spray of electronic and the game sense of shox because he moved even further than the previous best in all aspects of the game. i just dont see a reason to hate device all over the thread either.
2020-10-16 14:31
So you make jokes or baits about s1mple but others cant do the same? I'm literally doing the same fucking thing LOOOOL.

Yeah, right ... Mr. 15 MVP's ... "Eco frags" may not be enough to get you THAT far. You just don't understand what Dev1ce is doing ... but no worries: None of the other top teams has figured it out either!
2020-10-16 03:39
Dont get hurt so much that u write a paragraph once someone calls him ecovice. It only shows how mentally weak and desperate dev1ce fans are. U all shouldnt even be trying to convince ppl on hltv "How great dev1ce is" People with brain cells know already!!

hes not able to recognize it. hes constantly hating on device whos a top 5 player pretty much all the time.
2020-10-16 13:05
Yes. He is great. He is the most consistent player as far as hltv top10 ratings go. He almost never misses top5 or top10. Coming from a s1mple fan.

Tbf, 17% of his frags are anti-ecos, 9% are exits...that's fucking 26% easy/useless kills... 4% more than anyother t1 player...

source: trust my delusional biased brain bro
2020-10-16 13:06
Ahh more dev1ce dickriders... Why are you kids everywhere??? Why is he known as "ecovice"? because the stats show he has so many eco frags... Accept it and move on..
2020-10-16 13:12
there are literally no stats that show how many ecofrags a player gets... hltv users are just stupid.
2020-10-16 13:12
Not on hltv you fucking moron... there are demo reviewing sites which do calculate the number of exits in a clutch scenario and "eco frags" what a typical danish moron.
2020-10-16 13:13
source of this stat? :D
2020-10-16 13:14
I'll try to find it again, I just remember the ridiculous percentage dev1ce had
2020-10-16 13:15
You mean in 2018 when Dev1ce was injured?? i wonder why he doesnt show up on the graph... oh because he didnt fucking play...
2020-10-16 13:18
yeah sure "17th of July 2018" "last 3 months" totally not the period where astralis started dominating. youre an idiot with no proof and reasoning to your statement whatsoever. if you at least looked at the post or knew when device was sick... device hater classic.
2020-10-16 13:23
Denmark Kon10R
Which means 74% is ... what? Your language is offensive and uncalled for. Let's keep it cool. I guess it's expected from any awp'er to "deliver" the easy frags as well, and Dev1ce apparently does. I'm not necessarily a "dickrider", just pointing out here and there that he moves around like no one else. No wonder he gets a lot oif ecofrags as well, but he is apparently SURVIVING TILL THE END with 15 MVP's. That's a useful skill for his team.

Individual players or skills are interesting to the kids. But when it comes to Astralis, "someone else" always steps up.
2020-10-16 03:43
He played amazingly like always this game Just had more impact frags and clutches than multikills ehich is why his rating was lacking
2020-10-16 10:39
lol, he played shit. Dev1ce fanboys will literally grasp at any excuse...
2020-10-16 12:49
tbh he played shit, but he also did have more impact than the stats might say. he definitely contributed more than es3tag and magisk to the wins.

"Deserve" is based on emotions. But that's not how it works in real life.
2020-10-16 03:44
Something that doesnt WORK in real life doesnt mean it SHOULDN'T. Word "DESERVE" itself implies that things that DON'T usually work, SHOULD work in real life. Cadian performed the BEST in the server and that is why he SHOULD have won. Which basically is a different way of saying that he DESERVED to win. Regardless of things not working in real life the way you want to, meaning of deserve does not change and it does not entirely depend on emotions.

Is it only me or is it not kinda fishy that a washed up danish player gives up on his career comes back and playes like he is better than simple. In a team that got caught cheating using the coaching bug and the players said they new nothing about it. This was also at the same time this heroic became one of the best teams in the world out of nothing in cs first online era since they started to play on lans.
