The qualifiers for the last Major in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive storm on and several teams will fight for the opportunity to compete for the last major Major title in this version of Counter-Strike.
Ready for Paris after three straight wins
Norskeide Heroic is the first team from group B in the European RMR qualification to secure tickets to Paris. The Danish line-up led by a fiery Rasmus “sjuush” Beck won all three matches against 500, Aurora and Mote, respectively, where the team won with the exception of a single map against Aurora, which went all 30 laps before Heroic secured the map victory.
This is the fourth time in a row that Heroic has secured advancement to a Valve Major, the third with legend status.
Jakob “Jabbi” Nygaard continues to impress with his Heroic.
Beck, on the other hand, delivered a very strong 1.45 in rating during these four maps and must be said to be in good shape before Paris. With that, Heroic is the second Norwegian club that is ready for the Major after Apeks also qualified from Group A at Easter.

Norwegian participation in Paris
In addition to Norwegian clubs, on a player basis there are already two participants ready in Joakim “Jkaem” Myrbostad and Håkon “Hallzerk” Fjærli, who represent Apeks and Complexity respectively. Both players must be said to be in good shape during the qualifiers where Myrbostad finished with a total rating of 1.16 just behind his compatriot in Complexity who delivered 1.20 in rating for his team.
If all goes well, Norway could get a third participant to Paris if FaZe wins the Last Chance qualifier later this month where Håvard “rain” Nygaard is playing. The Grand Slam winners made a surprising exit after losing three matches in Group A of the RMR qualifiers. Although the team will be the favorite to take the last place in the Major, strong opposition awaits, and there are still games to be played that will decide who Nygaard and his FaZe will beat to advance.
Blast.tv Paris starts on 13 May and has a total prize pool of NOK 13,000,000.
