stavn: "Everyone is looking to beat NAVI, and I think we have a good shot at it"
Martin "stavn" Lund, a player of Heroic, shared his expectations from the upcoming BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021 in an interview to Pley.gg. He said that reaching the decisive match of the tournament is the main goal of the Danish team and noted that at the championship Heroic is able to beat NAVI – the strongest team in the world.
Going to the Grand Final here at BLAST Final will be a great goal for us to have. For me, NAVI is still obvious favourites and the strongest team in the world right now, which they have cemented. Everyone is looking to beat NAVI, and I think we have a good shot at it, even though we lost against them last time. For me personally, I see every big LAN tournament as a great chance to show your worth as a player, and you obviously want to bring your A-game to these kinds of tournaments.
Lund added that Heroic are no longer a team, which only performs well online. According to him, this is evidenced by the successful performance of the Danes at several LAN events, including PGL Major Stockholm 2021.
I think there’s no doubt anymore about us not being just “onliners”, who only can perform online. I think we have proofed now on LAN that we can play as good as we have done throughout the online era. So, I believe there are no questions any longer regarding our performance on LAN – We just have to perform to the expectations that people now have for us after our great result at the PGL Stockholm Major.
At BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021, FaZe will be the first opponent of Heroic. The encounter will take place today, November 24, at 17:00 MSK. In case of victory, the Danish squad will advance to the second round of the Upper Bracket, where they will face the winner of the NAVI – BIG matchup.
