The Blast Premier Fall Showdown

The Blast Premier Fall Showdown

If you are a follower of esports tournaments, then the advent of the BLAST Premier: Fall Showdown will certainly not have passed you by! This was the last chance for many of the best teams in the world to nab one of the last two places in the upcoming BLAST Premier: Fall Finals 2021. This is where the serious contenders compete for a $425,000 prize pool – as well as the plentiful number of BLAST Premier qualification points to reach the LAST Premier: World Final… which takes place in mid-December and would reward the winners $1 million.

It goes without saying that there were lots of teams that took to the esports stage to be one of the victors. However, there was only space for two winners.

A Blast Premier Heroic Performance

There was a lot expected from the Heroic team from Denmark, which was one of only two teams that the organizers considered worthy of the invitation – along with Virtus.pro, and they certainly proved their worth.

The team started their race to the top when they faced PGGERZ in the round of 16… and it ended quickly, after just two maps. The score ended up as 16-11 on the Mirage map and 11-10 on the Nuke match. Despite the fact that PGGERS played well and did cause the opponents a few issues, it wound up being a bit of a non-event game.

Heroic then went on to face Dignitas in their second match. This was a team that included various former NiP players including friberg and f0rest. Despite this, Heroic proved too much for them and again managed to finish the match after just two maps – winning 19-16 on the Nuke map and 16-13 on the Overpass map. The veteran Swedish players were clearly still a force to be reckoned with on the CSGO stage, but just not strong enough to compete with the Danes.

In the team’s final, third match, they faced their toughest challenge of the tournament, OG. But they proved too much again and won yet again in just two maps – this time with a score of 16-12 on the Inferno map and 16-11 on the Overpass map.

These victories will see the team through to becoming one of the 8 teams that will take part in the BLAST Premier: Fall Finals.

Liquid Proved a Sticky Customer

In the bottom half of the showdown was Liquid who had a tougher time, which made for some interesting CSGO gambling. Although they flew through the first match, only losing 9 rounds against 9z and had a pretty straightforward third match against the MAD Lions, where they won in two maps – 16-9 on the Nuke Map and 16-13 on the Inferno map. However, in their second match was where they nearly came a cropper! The team had to face Virtus.pro – the other team invited to the tournament and they didn’t make it easy. The CIS squad managed to win the second map – 16-9 on the Overpass map, and proved tough competitors on the first map where Liquid managed a win of 16-14 on the Inferno map and on the third map, where Liquid won 16-2 on the Overpass map.

So, after a rocky road, Liquid will be the ones to join Heroic in the BLAST Premier: Fall Finals for a tournament that will certainly cause waves in the world of CSGO.
