IHC has once again made waves in the competitive Counter-Strike scene with a remarkable win against Cloud9, who were ranked 24 spots higher. The 2-0 victory not only eliminated Cloud9 from the competition, but also avenged IHC’s previous loss to them earlier in the tournament.
The skill and talent of the IHC squad have garnered attention from fans and analysts alike, as they performed impressively in their matches against paiN and world-ranked No. 9 FURIA in the first phase of the tournament. While they suffered a setback in their match against Liquid, losing 0-2 despite having a 9-1 lead, they remain a force to be reckoned with.
IHC faces a challenging road ahead as they aim to secure a playoff spot. On Monday, they will go head to head with FaZe in the Group A lower semis, and a win would lead them to a lower bracket final match for a chance to compete at the Spodek Arena. It remains to be seen how far IHC can advance in the tournament, but one thing is certain: they have made a strong impact and are not to be underestimated.
