mousesports move on to BLAST Premier Fall Showdown semis over Heroic

A first encounter between the two teams in 2020 ended with Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen's men on top as mousesports are now one win away from a place in the Fall Finals.

After coming back from a narrow loss on the opening map against Heroic, mousesports secured a spot in the semi-finals at BLAST Premier Fall Showdown, where they will take on the winner of Cloud9 and Complexity for a spot at the Fall Finals. Meanwhile, Heroic exit the Showdown in 5th-8th place after accepting an invitation at the last minute, having replaced Evil Geniuses.

The second quarter-final of the tournament began on Mirage, where the two teams engaged in a tug of war with neither side looking favored until late in the opening map. mousesports were the first to strike on the back of Aurimas "⁠Bymas⁠" Pipiras's 1v4 clutch in the pistol round and looked to amass a good run on the Terrorist side, but a halfbuy win from Heroic stopped them in their tracks in the fifth round and the two teams went on to trade blows until the end of the half.

mousesports will play for a spot at the finals on Sunday

The European squad picked up another four-round streak off a second pistol victory but once again couldn't remain in the lead, with Heroic finding their groove once they kept mousesports on their toes with individual picks while René "⁠TeSeS⁠" Madsen ran rampant. At the end, karrigan's men tried to overturn three map points, but fell at the last hurdle to lose the opener 14-16.

mousesports made up for the loss on their own pick with a dominant display on Nuke, where they put up a wall on the defense to clinch 11 rounds and went on to equalize the series without too much of a worry, with everyone pulling their own weight.

So it all came down to Train. With David "⁠frozen⁠" Čerňanský looking in amazing shape, the European squad thrived on the offense and secured 10 rounds despite losing the opening pistol round while Heroic struggled to make their defense work. Once sides switched, mousesports kept the pressure up with a forcebuy win in the second round and rallied to a spot in the semi-finals with another rather lopsided win.

Very niiiiiiiiice from mouz, outstanding performance from Bymas, insane clutch at pistol in mirage, sadly we lost cuz of timing and details, very insane CT side on Nuke, and Stronk T side by mouz, followed by good holds of frozen on CT side at ladder. Nice!

mousesports is showing some life left in them, the core of karrigan, ropz and frozen could build a TOP 10 team together. Heroic is showing some potential, with small changes they could be maybe even the best team in the world again.

no surprise here when they played like garbage against endpoint and cant 2-0 a single team wont be long until this true tier 2 team falls off mark my words
2020-11-28 06:00
Good job mousesports.As soon as ropz has someone who comes online aswell is it bymas or frozen then you can see the potential on how current best teams dont have an answer to that,even on theyr favorite maps...little bit unlucky in mirage but nuke and train were just mousesports show...good luck in the semis.
2020-11-28 09:07
When you look at the stats it clearly doesn't do justice to chrisJ impact lol. Another proof that you shouldn't only look at the stats. How he traded or got important kills in post-plant/before post-plant or just when retaking/before retaking, he contributed a lot to even the odds for his team to win. mouz played really good CS honestly, hard to blame Heroic for not winning this one.

the lower bracket is so much stronger than the upper. heroic, complexity or mouz would walk the upper with ease.

there is no real definition, some people will call Astralis and Vitality tier1 and the rest tier2, tier3 etc. Some will say top10 is tier1. Or call all teams that participate in big tournaments tier1. It's really up to you. On average though, i think most people consider top10 tier1, correct me if i'm wrong
