Heroic eliminates Spirit at IEM Rio

The Danes ran away with the win in the Quarter-Finals.

A close match was expected between Team Spirit and Heroic in the third Quarter-Final of IEM Rio. But very quickly it became evident, that Heroic was on another level.

It started out on Vertigo, where the Danes quickly took control on their CT side winning 10 rounds in the first half. In the second half Casper 'cadiaN' Møller and his teammates had no issues finishing off the first map after some good calls. From the perspective of the Danes, it was the revival of Martin 'stavn' Lund, who was the highest-rated Heroic player on the map, that was the best sign for them for things to come. The talented Dane has been in shaky form in Rio, but against Spirit, he was back to his usual standards.

On their own map pick of Overpass, Heroic repeated their first half from Vertigo. A 10-5 lead saw them with a huge advantage going into the CT side on Overpass. But then Spirit won their fourth pistol round in a row, and this time they followed through by winning four rounds to almost equalize the score. At 13-13, they finally caught up on Heroic, but then the Danes again stepped up and broke Spirit down despite the big advantage for the CIS team in the economy game.

In the end, it was team captain Casper "cadiaN" Møller who drove his team to victory with some important calls and kills in the end. A great display from the Danish veteran, who is now ready for another Semi-Final at a Major.
