Heroic’s Counter-Strike team has qualified for the Champions Stage of the PGL Major Championship after beating Vitality (world rank: #3), Astralis (#8) and Copenhagen Flames (#10).
The PGL Major Championship is the most prestigious Counter-Strike tournament of the year and the prize pool of USD 2,000,000 is the largest in Counter-Strike’s history. By reaching the quarterfinals, Heroic is guaranteed to win minimum USD 70,000. The winner will take home USD 1,000,000.
