Sebastian “⁠Volt⁠” Maloș became GamerLegion’s shining star, repeatedly finding the openings that put Heroic on the back foot. Despite Heroic’s attempts, they couldn’t bounce back, especially after Sanzhar “⁠neaLaN⁠” Iskhakov’s notable 1vs2 clutch play further demoralized them. The map concluded with Heroic’s economy shattered and GamerLegion forcing the series into a decider on Overpass.

Post-Match Reflections

We didn’t coordinate or execute mid-round plays well.” Nevertheless, Heroic’s performance on Inferno and Overpass proved pivotal in their triumph.
