Both teams started off the series by winning each other’s map pick which resulted in the match going the distance. On the decider of Mirage, the Russian-side came out strongly and began to take control of the pace. Heroic was left in a tough spot as they didn’t manage to find their footing and stabilize their CT-side, which resulted in only 3 rounds on the scoreline for the Danish-side. As the teams switched side with the scoreline being 12-3, Gambit took the pistol round and Heroic would need a miracle to make a comeback. sh1ro and company quickly wrapped up the map without losing a single round on their CT-side to survive in the tournament.
