cadiaN: "Heroic have broken the curse. We've shown we can do that on LAN"
Heroic's in-game leader Casper "cadiaN" Møller commented on the victory at BLAST Premier Fall Final 2022 on the English-language broadcast of the tournament. He happily noted that his team won their first big LAN event.
Møller also spoke about the importance of a friendly atmosphere within the Danish team.
Heroic have broken the curse. We've shown we can do that on LAN. It feels amazing. That was such a tough game from start to finish. The way they won Inferno, back and forth. I want to appreciate the FaZe guys as well. We just took down a team that won a Major this year, they won IEM Katowice 2022 and IEM Cologne 2022. They are an insane team and a worthy opponent.
You know, we had our time in the online era where we won some trophies, but the feeling of doing it in the stadium is completely different. We're just really close. That kind of feeling is something that is uniting the team. The way we treat each other, the friendship, the comradery. It's just not something you see in a lot of teams in any sport. I'm feeling so lucky to be a part of it. You don't need to be really good friends in order to win but it just makes it a lot sweeter when it happens. I also think you're gonna cope better with the bad moments, the stressful moments, the tough losses and stuff like this. When you do it with people you respect and who respect you back, it means a lot. Coming into this tournament, I didn't expect it. And when I woke up this morning, I just didn't want to be remembered as a team who went to finals and lost twice. What an awful feeling that would be.
In the BLAST Premier Fall Final 2022 grand final, Heroic bested FaZe 2:1. The result brought the Danish team $200,000 from the total prize pool.
