Heroic were just one round away from becoming the first Major finalists after bringing a 6-13 deficit on Inferno, the Danish squad’s decider map in the semi-final against G2, to a 15-14 lead. But the Danes weren’t able to convert and were overwhelmed by a Nikola “NiKo” Kovač-powered squad that closed things out in overtime.
We met up with Rasmus “sjuush” Beck after he had some time to cool down from the intense action that had previously taken place on the Avicii Arena’s stage in front of a packed house and picked his brain on the team’s performance in the dying embers of the G2 match, as well as the general atmosphere in Heroic after their Major run came to an end.
Regarding what could have been, sjuush says he hoped for a final against NAVI if he and his teammates could have just closed out that one final round on Inferno. “I felt like we could always beat NAVI, when we played them we lost to ourselves, not to them being good.”
The 22-year-old also spoke of the importance of Heroic showing up on LAN, something many were doubting before the start of the Major, stating that “we can be proud of what we’ve done, top 4 at a Major, when we didn’t play so well online before.”
