Introduction and map veto

One thing is clear going into the Major Grand Final: None of the players on the server have ever won a CS:GO Major and for Heroic it would also be the first in the organization's history. For Virtus.Pro / Outsiders it would be the second Major after their victory at the ESL Major Series One Katowice 2014.

While it's safe to say that Outsiders will ban Nuke and Heroic will ban Dust2, the picks for the final bo3 of the event are unsure! A little side fact: The two teams have played twice within the last few weeks, both of those games were a best of one and the maps played Overpass and Mirage. Both teams managed to win once.
