With the burden of a final loss, the former VP roster came into the game with a cadiaN-led Heroic standing between them and a major trophy. Tacking some technical issues, we got underway.

We kicked off the final in Outsider's pick of Mirage, a map that both teams are well versed in and boast a good record. The terrorist side, the Outsiders managed to edge Heroic out by a round. Moving onto the offense, Heroic did not find enough solutions to break Outsider's defense before losing the map 16-12.

Heroic looked to answer back on their own pick of Overpass, again a map that both teams have shown prowess in. Despite being their pick, it couldn't have gone worse for Heroic as the Outsiders showed up with a dominant CT side, posting 12 rounds in the first half of the map alone. The Russians had an answer to everything Heroic threw at them and by the time the game reached the second half, Outsiders had one hand on the trophy.
