Heroic replace Evil Geniuses at BLAST Premier Fall Showdown

The North American side is unable to attend the tournament due to COVID-19 related restrictions.

Heroic will take Evil Geniuses' place in the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown, which will kick off on November 24, as COVID-19 restrictions have prevented the North American squad from traveling to Europe, the tournament's organizers have announced.

Ranked second in the HLTV.org world ranking at the moment, the Danes have been invited to join the likes of FURIA, NiP, FaZe, and Liquid after failing to qualify for the 16-team tournament, having placed third-fourth at the Elisa Invitational 2 in early November.

cadiaN & co. will face Endpoint in the first round

With Evil Geniuses dropping out of the tournament, Peter "⁠stanislaw⁠" Jarguz & co. will be unable to qualify for the Fall Finals. They have already secured a spot in January's Global Finals, however, after winning the Spring Americas Finals earlier this year.

BLAST Premier Fall Showdown will award spots at the Fall Finals to the top-two teams as well as $150,000 in prizemoney. The tournament will be played in a single-elimination, best-of-three bracket from Tuesday, November 24 to Sunday, November 29.

Casper "⁠cadiaN⁠" Møller's team will first take on Endpoint in the Round of 16, on Thursday at 19:30 . Their side of the bracket also features mousesports, GODSENT, Complexity, Sprout, NiP, and Cloud9.

I also think Heroic-coL will play each other since Mouz is playing like shit and Godsent have Emi as a new player. And Heroic should easily beat Endpoint. coL is also looking strong and should be able to beat Sprout that is rumoured to remove their Polish players and i guess coL will beat C9/NIP as well, but idk.

They could. Looking at Spirit-VP head to head Spirit > VP. Obviously Furia is a great team, but, November for them have been really bad. Sure, they played 2 Bo3s, but still. And, also rumours say that Hen1 and VINI will be removed from the team, but, idk, we have to wait and see if that happens.

It is funny you say that, but it is not true. In '92, Denmark had not qualified to the European football championship, but a war broke out in the former Yugoslavia, so they could not participate, so we got in anyway since we were next in rank.. the rest is history (we won... yes big surprise..)

Technically the Elisa invitational 2 was a qualifier (where Godsent and Mad Lions placed top 2 to qualify). Heroic placed 3rd/4th but the other team is Havu who obviously don’t even have a full roster. Given the circumstances it’s technically right that they’re a replacement

Everyone talking about NA CS is dead. The thing is that this impacts all CS community in a bad way. Everyone switches the game to Valorant and in the end, Valorant will be a more popular game than CS. In my opinion, it is easier to be a pro gamer in Valorant and soon the prize pool will be the same as CS.
