Heroic - Latest performance & results
Heroic unexpectedly decided to make two player changes after a very successful last year. With refrezh and sjuush two Danish players from MAD Lions were signed shortly before the ESL Pro League and should bring the lineup back to the top of the world. Surprisingly fast they managed to do so. Undefeated, Heroic played their way to the title at their first major tournament and surprised the scene.
In the final Heroic met, as already mentioned above, Gambit and beat them in the fifth and decisive map Mirage. The team also showed very confident performances so far at the BLAST Spring Showdown, but had lucky draws with SAW and 9z. In the match between Heroic and Gambit, the odds give the Danish top team a slight underdog role.
Gambit - Latest performance & results
Gambit is the big surprise of the new year. The team has only been playing at the top of the world for a short time and only contested their first really big event in 2021 at the IEM Katowice 2021, which the lineup won and stunned the CS:GO community. However, Gambit can by no means be said to be a one-off success. The Russian team is currently in first place in the EsportFire World Ranking after finishing second in the ESL Pro League.
The team continued their good performance at the BLAST Spring Showdown and defeated NASR clearly on the first match day. The team also won against top Brazilian team FURIA in the second round, qualifying for the final against Heroic. In the final last week, Gambit was the better team for long stretches, but was clearly defeated on the last map.
Heroic vs. Gambit - Map-Veto prediction
Dust2 and Nuke are practically fixed as bans. Between Heroic and Gambit, the tip regarding the maps is Inferno and Vertigo. Train would be conceivable as the decider.
Heroic vs. Gambit - Prediction
Despite the defeat in the last direct duel, we bet on the Russian favorite between Heroic and Gambit, who nevertheless were more convincing in the final of the ESL Pro League and only lost unhappily.
