Yesterday, Heroic secured a ticket to the BLAST Premier Fall Final in Copenhagen, Denmark, following a hard-fought 2-0 victory over gla1ve’s troops from Astralis in the Danish derby. By securing a spot in the exciting Fall Finals event, Heroic earned themselves a chance to play in front of a home crowd in the Royal Arena, while denying Astralis the exact same opportunity.
A player who stole the show in the Danish derby with his good performance, despite losing the match, was Astralis’ young academy player, Mikkel “MistR” Thomsen, who in his debut event with the first team played a big role in getting his team to the grand final. A strong showing from the 18-year-old Dane against his fellow countrymen left Heroic’s captain Casper “cadiaN” Møller very impressed and even made him jump to Twitter after the match to acknowledge the level of Counter-Strike the young academy player has been showcasing throughout the event.
“Honestly very impressed with MistR, you’ve shown everyone your positive energy in the games, and under very difficult circumstances, and high pressure, you played your best game today, and we felt that.” – cadiaN via Twitter after the match.
