cadiaN: No one sees Heroic as a title contender. Such underestimation will help us

Heroic’s in-game leader Casper "cadiaN" Møller spoke about the goals of his team for the current year at the press conference ahead of the group stage of IEM Katowice 2022. He believes that the Danish roster can take advantage of the status of an underdog and significantly improve last year's results.

The parts quoted are the translation from our Russian website.

We always hope for progress. The last two years have been full of surprises, to put it mildly. Now that everything has calmed down around the team, we expect to achieve much better results. The current roster is capable of surpassing its previous achievements. Last year, Heroic made it to the top 4 of two LAN events with a live audience, thus giving the answer to all the naysayers who doubted our strength in the offline environment.

Now I am very excited. IEM Katowice 2022 is our first tournament this year. Besides, stavn returned to the lineup. I do believe that we are able to achieve very good results this year. At the same time, Heroic has many competitors. It's funny that now everyone is talking about any other teams except us. No one sees Heroic as a title contender. Such underestimation will help us.

Last year, Heroic won ESL Pro League Season 13 and made it to the top-4 of such big events as PGL Major Stockholm 2021, BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021, ESL Pro League Season 14 and DreamHack Masters Spring 2021.

The debut match of the Danish team this year will take place tomorrow, February 17, at 14:30 MSK. The team will face off against OG in Group A of IEM Katowice 2022.
