Heroic has been one of the sleeper teams, that many have probably forgotten in the discussion of title candidates at this year's Major in Brazil. A lackluster 2022 has definitely contributed to the lowered expectations, but watching Heroic at the opening day of IEM Rio Legends Stage has perhaps changed people’s minds.
Against Fnatic it was over almost before it had started. A 13-2 lead at halftime was converted to a 16-2 win. A very impressive win for the Danes, who are now on a nine-match win streak! And with both NAVI and FaZe out of the 2-0 bracket, this looks like a perfect opportunity for Heroic to lock in their playoff spot at IEM Rio.
