A month-long battle finally came to a close with Heroic beating Gambits 3-2. Heroic was unbeaten throughout the league and was surely in form against Gambit. However, Gambit posed a huge threat and fans were torn deciding between the two.

Now, they have closed the league with zero classes and a reservation in the BLAST Premiere Global Finals.

Breathtaking moment in Counter Strike Pro League

One player who stood out through the match was none other than Casper “cadiaN” Møller. The Danish veteran has played for several teams throughout his career. Owing to his experience, cadiaN knew the tactics and skills to play alongside much younger teammates. His in-game leadership helped Heroic throughout the season and finally led them to the grand prize.

cadiaN did not have the entire thing planned, but still found his way through. The player explained his moves in a post-match interview.

“At this point, I’m thinking of economy right. I’m not really thinking about winning at this point. I’m watching here and I see this guy pushing me. And when he was pushing me, I felt like it was over. I was having so much confidence, I hear him moving, I kill him and then I saw him while making a small jump upstairs and yeah that is one of the most absurd endings to a Counter Strike game we will ever witness,” cadiaN described the matchup.

Further, what is even merrier is the fact that Heroic has left the league winning $200,000 and a total of 1,300 ESL Pro Tour points.
