Heroic defeat Gambit Esports in ESL Pro League 13 grand final

In a five-map thriller, Heroic edged out a victory against Gambit Esports in the grand finals of ESL Pro League Season 13, with Casper “cadiaN” Moller pushing his team across the finish line with a stellar performance. 

The series really went the distance, taking almost eight hours. The action kicked off on Heroic’s pick of Inferno, but it was Gambit Esports that looked better in the first half of the map. The young CIS squad locked down the CT-side, running away with the game at halftime. Despite being down 11-4, Heroic started to claw their way back into it. They eventually managed to close the gap, tying up the map at 15-15.

Heroic really found its rhythm and carried on the momentum in the first overtime. The Danes held their ground and closed out the map victory in the first overtime, but the stage seemed to be set. This was going to be a nailbiter of a grand final.

While Heroic had a shaky start on their own map pick, they seemed to be crumbling their opponents. With experienced rifler Abay “Hobbit” Khasenov out-performing his younger teammates in the fragging department, Gambit outclassed their opponents on Vertigo. A quick 15-3 victory tied up the series at one map win each.

Going into the third map of Train, the game turned into a war of attrition. Both teams traded blows, but neither was able to make a difference. With yet another tied game after 30 rounds, another overtime was on the card. Heroic eventually edged out Gambit, but needed quadruple overtime to do so. With an insane final score of 26-28, Heroic reached matchpoint going into the fourth map, Overpass.

Gambit brought the fight to Heroic in a close back and forth, trading rounds in the first half. They eventually managed to break Heroic’s spirit in the second half, a Vladislav “nafany” Gorshkov taking over the server. He led his team to a seven-round win streak, tieing up the series once again with a 16-10 victory.

Going into the fifth and final map of the series, the players were already six hours deep into the match. As fatigue started to take its toll, Gambit let the game slip out of their hands. They struggled on Mirage’s T-side, only winning two rounds in the first half. Switching over to defense, Gambit started to rally despite having all the odds stacked against them. After trading some rounds Heroic was on map and match point, but the Danes were forced into a dicey eco position after dropping a key round. Armed with nothing but a P250, cadiaN decided the series had gone on long enough. 

Facing four opponents by himself, he managed to sneak onto the A site. He knifed Dmitry “sh1ro” Sokolov and took away his AWP. Armed with his favorite rifle, cadiaN took down the rest of the team, winning Heroic the map and title in the process.

Heroic adds another big trophy to its mantel

With the win in the ESL Pro League Season 13 finals, Heroic has added another huge event championship to its resume. Though Heroic has long hung around near the top of CSGO’s esports scene, the organization hasn’t stood out in top events.

But since winning ESL One Cologne 2020 Online, Heroic has been going toe-to-toe with CSGO’s biggest names. Ahead of its win over the IEM Katowice 2021 winners, Heroic defeated the likes of Complexity Gaming, BIG, and FURIA. It was a roundly great performance by the team and one that really cements Heroic as a serious rival to the organization’s big brother Astralis.

Heroic doesn’t get much time to savor the victory, though. They begin their run in BLAST Premier: Spring Showdown 2021 in just three days.

Triumph, TeamOne secure final cs_summit 8 closed qualifier spots

Triumph and TeamOne have claimed victory in the second cs_summit 8 open qualifier, besting Third Impact and Imperial, respectively, to earn the final spots in the closed stage which will run from May-14-18 and offer four spots in the North American Regional Major Ranking (RMR) event.

After easing through the early stages of the bracket, Alan “⁠Shakezullah⁠” Hardeman‘s side faced strong contention from SKDC in the first best-of-three round, managing to narrowly secure a victory in two maps to meet Imperial for a spot in the closed stage.

The Brazilian roster had fallen early on in the previous qualifier, and despite mustering a better run this time around, they were unable to prevail over Triumph, who opened the series strong with a Mirage win before bouncing back from losing their map pick by edging out a 16-13 win on Nuke to advance.

Cooper was the highest-rated player for Triumph against Imperial

TeamOne, who suffered a similar fate to their countrymen in their last qualifier bid, were able to claim redemption for themselves as they fought past Party Astronauts in a three-map series, and wasted little time in securing their closed qualifier spot by trouncing Third Impact 16-5 on Inferno and Nuke in the ensuing round.

Four spots at cs_summit 8 will be up for grabs through the closed qualifier, which will also mark the return of Extra Salt and paiN to North America, as well as GODSENT‘s first appearance in the region after playing in Europe for the first portion of the year.

The complete team list for the closed qualifier consists of:

What does Rook’s armor do in Rainbow Six Siege?

Avatar

Published

on

Rainbow Six Siege features a diverse cast of operators with different abilities and tools to help their team. Some are tedious and tough to master, while others provide excellent support and are easy to use. Rook, one of the original operators in Siege, is a perfect example of the latter. 

Rook’s armor plates provide an excellent boost to teammates that can make a difference in gunfights. But a lot of players aren’t familiar with what the plates actually do.

Rook can place a bag full of armor plates each round that he and his teammates can pick up. Players can only pick up one armor plate at a time and can grab a plate at any point during a round. 

The plates provide a 20-percent armor boost to the user without penalty, which is an incredible boost for a team. The plates also guarantee players will enter the down-but-not-out stage when damaged instead of instantly dying. But a headshot will still instantly kill a player even if they are wearing Rook’s armor. 

If a player is picked up by a teammate, they will lose the armor plate. But they can pick up another plate if there are plates available. Rook’s Armor Pack can be destroyed by enemies, so avoid waiting long to pick it up. Also, avoid shooting it, since friendly fire can also destroy the pack. 

Rook is an excellent choice for new players because he is available by default and his ability is easy to use. Just ping the armor pack to let your teammates know it is available, and they will have a slight advantage for the rest of the round.

TOTW 33 Predictions FIFA 21: Who’s Getting in?

TOTW 33 predictions for FIFA 21 are coming in as fans prepare for yet another Wednesday content drop in Ultimate Team.

Team of the Week cards are more or less irrelevant at this point in the year for actual gameplay. Yes, they’re still required in Squad Building Challenges here and there, but fans are more concerned with what those particular SBCs are and which Team of the Season cards they’re working into their teams. Especially considering TOTS cards replaced TOTW items in FUT Champions rewards at the start of the promotion.

Still, expect EA Sports to eventually release a repeatable TOTW upgrade SBC at some point in the rest of the FUT cycle. Perhaps they’ll even make it 84+ overall.

Here are some favorites for TOTW 33 in FIFA 21:

Expect there to be a decent amount of Premier League players in this TOTW considering the PL TOTS squad just left packs. The headliner of the group should more than likely be Robert Lewandowski. Although, if the Bundesliga TOTS squad is next, he will miss out considering he’ll be featured in that promotion and there cannot be two special versions of him in packs at the same time. Same goes for Sancho.

TOTW 33 will be announced and released May 12 at 1 p.m. ET.

5 Best AD Carries in League of Legends Patch 11.10

League of Legends

The AD carry role in League of Legends Patch 11.10 is one of the pivotal roles in the game. Teams look to their AD carries as the focal point of damage and their main job is to take down the enemy’s front line so that the backline doesn’t stand a chance. In 11.10 there are a couple of changes in the bot lane but none that will drastically influence the landscape of the role.

Here are the five best AD carries in League of Legends Patch 11.10.

Jinx

Even though she received a nerf in 11.10 Jynx is still the best AD carry in the game by a long shot. She does overwhelming damage and has a ridiculous attack range thanks to her rockets.

Caitlyn

Caitlyn was a star in 11.9 and that’s going to continue in 11.10. She’s able to pin down enemies with her traps and deal big damage with her ultimate. With the right support pairing she’s a nightmare in the bot lane

Jhin

What Jhin lacks in movement speed he makes up for with huge attack damage. Players that pick up this champion must be prepared because your performance as Jhin will be entirely dependent on whether you’re able to hit skill shots. But if you can, no one will be able to stand up to you.

Kog’Maw

Kog’Maw got a few tweaks last patch that has helped him moving into 11.10. Thanks to the mana reduction on his E his harass is at an all-time high. Kog’Maw is now a bully in the bot lane and moving forward this will be the case in 11.10.

Samira

As one of the most polarizing champions in the game, Samira’s spot on the list could be argued. But many would agree that she deserves to be here. Samira players dominate matchups once they hit their power spikes and in 11.10 it’ll be more of the same.
