HEROIC finish second in IEM Rio Major
published 15 November 2022
Unfortunately, it was not our time this time. We lose 0-2 to Outsiders in the grand final of the Rio Major 2022. Congratulations to them, they were the better team yesterday and are well deserved winners of the Major, having played some very solid Counter-Strike throughout the tournament. GGWP!
Despite the heartbreaking loss, we are immensely proud of our players for making it all the way to the final. And getting 2nd place at a Major tournament is not an easy feat. We will build on this experience and come back as an even stronger unit in the future.
Hats off to Casper Møller and the rest of the players; Martin Lund, René Madsen, Rasmus Beck and Jacob Nygaard, for giving us so many unforgettable moments over the course of the Major. We also applaud our performance staff: Richard Landström, Mikael Mellström, Kasper Straube Hansen and Lasse Svan. This amazing run would not have been possible without you
Thank you to all the fans that believed and supported us! And thank you for having us, Brazil! It was a blast, and we will see you again soon!
Next tournament for our Counter-Strike team is at home soil when we play the BLAST Fall Finals in Copenhagen. The tournament starts next week, Wednesday 23 November, with the match against our Swedish friends and rivals Ninjas in Pyjamas.
See you there!
