Vitality vs HEROIC: Who will qualify for the CS2 IEM Dallas 2024 Semi-finals?

Prediction

Vitality vs HEROIC will be one of the more intense matchups in IEM Dallas 2024. The Vitality side will be seeking another victory against HEROIC, while HEROIC will be eager to lift their first-ever IEM trophy.

Vitality started their campaign a bit slow as they managed to win against MONTE with a 16-12 scoreline. Valorant’s famous 9-3 curse seems to work for Vitality as they made a comeback on the T-side despite being down with a 3-9 scoreline. Meanwhile, they also secured a win against a potential contender in the IEM tournament, G2 Esports.

However, the South American dark horses 9z put a stop to their dream at their thrifty run, as the French side failed to win a single map against them. Vitality on the T-side feels almost invincible while their CT side seems fragile. apEX and flameZ, both were struggling to hold bomb sites yet on the CT side.

Furthermore, the community is witnessing almost a similar scene from the ESL Pro League Season 19, as Zywoo is the only player pulling off some exceptional frags and clutches. However, Spinx also helps him by pulling off the remaining frags. These two players stand out to be the backbone of the team while other players like mezii and Flamez have yet to show their true potential.

On the other hand, HEROIC started their campaign with a heartbreaking loss against Virtus. Pro. However, managed to make an amazing comeback against three teams BIG, NaVi, and M80. They are having a perfect run so far as they’re yet to drop a map in their upcoming matches.

The Community was shocked once they defeated one of the top contenders of the tournament, NaVi, as the Ukrainian side recently won the first-ever CS2 major. All players from the Norwegian side seem perfect having better raw firepower than any other teams in the tournament.

Despite being benched earlier, nicoodoz has made a memorable comeback as HEROIC is on a stellar run despite how big the opponent is. On the other hand, players like TeSeS and squash, are also having an incredible streak. Overall, the team is performing pretty well under kyxsan’s captaincy.

In the Vitality vs HEROIC matchup, the scales are tipped towards the latter. The Norwegian powerhouse is way ahead of the French side in terms of raw power, strategy, and a couple of other things. However, considering ZywOo and Spinx’s recent form, Vitality will surely capitalize on every single mistake of HEROIC.
