Magisk's 1 HP Deagle ace doesn't save Vitality from exiting Antwerp Major2022-05-17 15:56:00
Vitality lost to Heroic in an elimination bo3 of the Legends stage at PGL CS:GO Major Antwerp 2022. The Danish squad defeated their rivals with a score of 2:1 — Mirage (16:7), Overpass (14:15), and Inferno (16:12).
After hammering Vitality on the first map, Heroic started strong on the attack on Overpass. Emil "Magisk" Reif had to pull the miracle to stop them on the eco. Armed only with Desert Eagle, the Dane first found an opponent through the smoke. That encounter already cost Magisk most of his health. After pushing through the tunnel on B, he was left with only 1 HP. Despite that, he met the Heroic squad returning from rotation and shot them one by one with the Deagle.
This move certainly played its role in Vitality's comeback, and despite Heroic's best efforts, the map went to the Magisk's team. Inferno started similar to the previous maps. The Danes were in the lead while Vitality tried to catch up. They even turned 5-14 into 12-14 on the defense, but it wasn't enough.
PGL Major Antwerp 2022 is taking place in Belgium from 9-22 May. 24 teams are fighting for million dollars and the BLAST World Final invite.
