Gambit - Latest performance & results
The Russian newcomers had a sensational start into the new year. After a victory at the Vulkan Fight Series and the second place at the Snow Sweet Snow 1, the lineup played their first big tournament at the IEM Katowice and only their second S-Tier event after the DreamHack Masters Winter. Sensationally, Gambit not only reached the final match at the IEM, but also won it with 3:1 in the duel with Virtus.Pro.
A little later, the team lost to Copenhagen Flames at the Snow Sweet Snow. This defeat represents the only one since the upper bracket quarterfinal against Evil Geniuses on 18.02.2021. Between Gambit and Heroic, the odds favor the team. In the playoffs, the squad had solid wins against Astralis and NiP, but nearly blew a huge lead on the last map played, Dust2, and ended up winning only 16-14.
Heroic - Latest performance & results
Who can beat Gambit in the new year anyway?
Possibly a newly formed lineup on Denmark, which under IGL cadiaN last rose to the absolute top of the world and is so far undefeated in the ESL Pro League. After mediocre performances in the first tournaments of the year, the organization decided to sign the two Danes refrezh and sjuush from MAD Lions.
At the ESL Pro League, the team won each of their five group matches, including wins against Complexity, OG, and BIG and went undefeated in the playoffs as well. Heroic won their first duel in the play-ins against NiP, and beat FURIA in yesterday's semi-final in relatively commanding fashion. In the match with Gambit, Heroic is the underdog given the odds.
