ESL Pro League Season 15 Playoffs: Heroic is Eliminated
Today, in the round of 12 of ESL Pro League season 15, Team Liquid avenged Heroic’s triumph in ESL Pro League season 14 in 2021. Unlike last year, the North Americans did not crumble under the pressure. Instead, they dominated Heroic in both maps of the series.
The scoreboard on Ancient (16-9), the first map of this CS:GO series, may not tell the whole story. Liquid lost the first half 9-6 but won all 10 rounds of the CT side to take the map. Jonathan “EliGE” Jablonowski was a force to be reckoned with, securing 15 kills in those 10 rounds to push his team toward the comeback.
The series then went to Vertigo, and despite it being Heroic’s pick, the Danes did not do much. Liquid displayed a strong defensive setup in the first half and secured a big advantage (11-4) for the final half. Heroic showed some glimpses of life during their CT side, but ultimately it was the North Americans who won 16-10.
