Heroic through to Flashpoint 3 lower bracket final over Astralis

Casper "⁠cadiaN⁠" Møller and company managed to close the match out in the 30th round of Overpass.

Heroic came out on top in a two map derby against Astralis and have secured a spot in the Flashpoint 3 lower bracket final, where they will face the winner of the second lower bracket semi-final pitting NIP and BIG.

"I always thought I would make it to the top at some point, my goal has always been to dethrone Astralis on another team and that I have accomplished, so this is really nice," René "⁠TeSeS⁠" Madsen said in the post-match interview moments after defeating his countrymen for the second time this month.

Astralis’ will not be able to proceed further in the tournament, as this is their second loss after falling to mousesports in the upper bracket, but they nonetheless have one more match lying ahead, the fifth place decider on Sunday, to try and accrue as many Regional Major Ranking points as possible.

Heroic have won their three lower bracket matches 2-0

Astralis won the first pistol round on Nuke starting on the CT side, but Heroic struck right back in the forcebuy to take a 3-1 lead. After that, both teams tussled back-and-forth in a very fought out half that Lukas "⁠gla1ve⁠" Rossander’s men were able to take 9-6. Roles reversed in the first rounds of the second half, as Heroic won the pistol round but lost against the second round forcebuy. Despite the momentary setback, the team led by cadiaN quickly settled on the defense and took their map pick 16-12.

Astralis’ pistol win on the attacking side was once again countered by a forcebuy in the second round. This timem Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif and company weren’t able to regain their footing early on, however, and Heroic started to run away on the scoreboard, 7-1, before Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen won a 1vs1 clutch to tally a second round for his side. The two teams then split the difference to end up 10-5 at the half. Astralis’ second pistol victory was again countered by a forcebuy the following round, after which a brawl ensued in a half that went to the wire, ending with the bomb going off in the thirtieth round and Heroic securing a spot in the next round of play.

Current G2 hasn't played LAN at all, so, not sure how you can conclude in any direction.

they'll probably get to the legends stage and loot a lot of money, even if they lose every game on major (if they're cheating or smth, they will), so it's still very profitable for them

Heroic looking great again, they can win this tournament. Astralis needs an AWPer.
2021-05-27 07:59
I expected this series to be close encounter between these two teams but it was so one sided that I didn't expected Astralis to lose 0-2. Definitely they (Astralis) need some change. It's all up to gla1ve and zonic. Majors are coming, go go Astralis and make the major incoming.
