Esport – Counter-Strike: Heroic and Outsiders in the Rio Major final

The beautiful story of the Brazilians of Furia at home at the Rio Major, on counter strike, stopped in the semi-finals, on the night of Saturday to Sunday (16-6, 17-19, 5-16). The Danes of Heroic extinguished a Jeunesse Arena still full to bursting with fans dedicated to their favorites, obviously disappointed at the end of the match.

The locals had however started their match better: if the two formations have quite comparable offensive styles, they took advantage of the hesitations of their opponents, undoubtedly a little stressed by the stakes and the pressure imposed by a public still perfect in its role of sixth element behind his team. Uninhibited, boosted by the atmosphere like during his quarter against NAVIFuria played the aggression card perfectly to take a step towards the final.

If Heroic woke up in the second set and finally unfolded his game, the Brazilians, trailing 15-5, recovered at 15-15 and offered themselves a perfect opportunity to conclude in extra time. But the Danes, mentally strong, still managed to equalize before surfing on this dynamic on Nuke, the last card, to reach their first Major final.

Collapsed, the Brazilians may have regrets, even if no one expected to see them go so far in this unpredictable tournament. ” Our time will come Sunday, today (yesterday) we must salute Furia », slipped Casper “cadiaN” Moller, the Danish captain.

In the final (from 7 p.m., Sunday), Heroic will face Outsiders – a name that hides that of Virtus.pro, a Russian structure banned from participating in tournaments under its official identity because of its proximity to the government – and Dzhami “Jame” Ali , exemplary leader in Brazil, winners of Mouz a little earlier on Saturday (16-10, 14-16, 16-7). An opposition of styles this time: the Danish aggressiveness against the passivity of the Russian speakers, but an unexciting poster on paper. Few have bet on the duo at the start of a tournament.
