The players break is over, and our first important tournament of the season is here. As always, we expect a great tournament from BLAST, this time at the BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2023. If this is your first time on the website, you can take a look at our previous CSGO posts.
How is the format on the BLAST Fall Groups kick-off?
Group stage Double elimination Bo3
- Groups winners qualify for Fall Final, remaining teams proceed to the Knockout Stage.
Playoffs Knockout Stage
- Single elimination Bo3
- Bracket winners qualify for Fall Final, remaining teams proceed to Fall Showdown.
What teams are participating?
12 of the best teams in the world are participating on the tournament. Most of them recently rebuilt, so it is for sure that we will have some amazing games! Here you can see which teams will be participating:
Scheduled games for Day 1
- Vitality, our actual Major winners, will win against EG.
- Vitality has made only one change in their lineup, by bringing Shahar “flameZ” Shushan from OG, replacing the Danish superstar Peter “Dupreeh” Rasmussen. On paper, this change seems to be one of the most promising on this off season market. On the other side we have EG, who farewell with their old roster, promoting all the EG Black team to their main roster. The North American team was not a strong team when they were EG Black, and I don’t think they are able to win against this reformed Vitality.
- NIP will win against the new Complexity.
- Ninjas in Pyjamas brought back Hampus “hampus” Poser, a player that previously was on the team. I think that they look more stable than Complexity, that has a completely new player on Jonathan “EliGE” Jablonowski. It is nothing new that when a new player joins a team it takes time for the team to get used to each other and the player the new system.
