[VOD] Discussing Heroic's rise to the top on HLTV Confirmed with cadiaN

Casper "⁠cadiaN⁠" Møller joins the live show that starts at 15:00 to talk about his team's success during the online era.

The 25-year-old AWPer and in-game leader will take part in the fourteenth episode of HLTV Confirmed's fifth season, with the show focusing on Heroic's turbulent year.

The leader of the current #1 team joins the show on Twitch

Things were looking rough for the Danish squad after the deal to move to FunPlus Phoenix fell through in March, leaving cadiaN and co. without league to compete in and with a place on the roster to fill, as Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen was set on joining Astralis.

Heroic managed to turn it all around by adding René "⁠TeSeS⁠" Madsen and Nikolaj "⁠niko⁠" Kristensen, as well as Nicolai "⁠HUNDEN⁠" Petersen as coach, climbing to the #1 spot in the rankings after winning ESL One Cologne Europe. Their stint on the top was short-lived and coach-bug controversies followed, but the team managed to regain the crown by winning DreamHack Open Fall, creating exciting rivalries with Astralis and Vitality along the way.

Topics for the show:

Hot seat with cadiaN (50 min)

Wow dodge the question that matters. But I will try. "What Cadian think about Karrigans statement that "to hold Hunden during his Ban time corrupt their achievements and the rivalry vs Astralis and does a lot of damage to the danish scene"
2020-11-09 12:08

is karrigan the one making the interview? I feel like they should discuss BUGS jump abuse during a major, how every player not only knew about it but also used it. That should be the topic, cause i just said so. Also the question you put out doesnt even make sense, i dont think you know how " " works lmfao
2020-11-09 12:32

Karrigan was there 2 or 3 weeks ago and Karrigan said this about the Hunden situation. So I dunno what do you want from me. It is a legit question. Also it is a question about a topic that happens few month ago and not years. It has still relevance. And how or what doesn't change the question at all. Bye

karrigan doesnt speak on behalf of the whole danish scene lmfao and doesnt matter that he was there, it's still not karrigans podcast. The fact is if Cadian says the same thing that Heroic publicly said, which was that hunden acted on his own without the knowledge of the players, disingenious people will still cry and bitch about it, even though Heroic achieved all what they did without the coach bug, so what is there even to discuss?

FC Real Madrid or FC Barcelona shouldn't loose to teams like Hueska, Alaves, Sporting de Gijon, etc, for example. But it had happened many times while RM and Barca was on top. To be honest you need to look at the results for a long distance.

Well spoken Cadian. I've been following Heroic for a long time now, and it was nice to hear the story/journey from your viewpoint. I was entertained.
