Esports bookmakers have Cloud9 priced as 1.44 favourites to defeat Heroic, who enter the series as 2.62 underdogs. Heroic have yet to play an official tournament with the current lineup, which explains why they're not expected to do well; however, Cloud9 can be a bit inconsistent.

  • Cloud9 are on a three-game winning streak
  • Heroic have won nine of their last 11 series
  • Cloud9 are ranked no.9 in the world

Head to Head


Heroic and Cloud9 have yet to meet wit their current rosters.

Cloud9 Form


Cloud9 enter BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024 on a three-game winning streak. Earlier this month, they beat OG, 3DMAX, and BetBom Team and made it through the PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: European Qualifier A.

It was a nice bounce back following their poor finish to 2023 when Cloud9 won just one of three series at BLAST Premier: World Final 2023 with defeats against Vitality and MOUZ. Prior to that, Cloud9 have produced mixed results, showing just how inconsistent they can be.

This doesn't take away from the fact that Cloud9 are a very strong lineup that can easily compete in some of the biggest tournaments in the scene. But they need to find more stability to truly reach their full potential.

Cloud9 Squad & Team News


Cloud9 have not made any recent roster changes.

  • Sergey "Ax1Le" Rykhtorov
  • Abay "HObbit" Khassenov
  • Denis "electroNic" Sharipov
  • Ilya "Perfecto" Zalutskiy
  • Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhaylov

Heroic Form


Heroic had to rebuild their Counter-Strike lineup in December due to the departure of Martin "stavn" Lund and Jakob "jabbi" Nygaard. Now, after a few weeks, Heroic have formed a complete roster, with new additions of Guy "NertZ" Iluz, Nico "nicoodoz" Tamjidi, and Damjan "kyxsan" Stoilkovski.

The new roster has yet to attend an official tournament, but they did play in the PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: European Open Qualifier and the PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: European Qualifier B, where Heroic performed well.

They won nine games across 11 series and lost only against KOI and MOUZ. Even though winning nine series is impressive, we must consider that Heroic have played mostly second-tier teams.

Heroic Squad & Team News


Heroic have not made any roster changes since December.

  • René "TeSeS" Madsen
  • Rasmus "sjuush" Beck
  • Guy "NertZ" Iluz
  • Nico "nicoodoz" Tamjidi
  • Damjan "kyxsan" Stoilkovski

Verdict

Cloud9 are priced as heavy favourites to defeat Heroic, which sounds right. They're a better team with better results to their name and continuity from 2023 – whereas Heroic have only played a dozen games with the new roster.

Even though Cloud9 are prone to dropping maps against weaker opponents, it's only a matter of time before they find the stability to establish themselves a one of the top teams in the world. It remains to be seen when that'll happen, but Cloud9 should make easy work of Heroic.
