Over four million US dollars - BLAST Premier announced

New name, more teams and more prize money: The BLAST PRO Series will be renamed BLAST Premier in 2020. Last weekend, organizer RFRSH Entertainment let the cat out of the bag during the BLAST Pro Series Moscow.

While the Berlin major finalist AVANGAR celebrated the title at the BLAST Pro Series Moscow, the organizer’s announcement caused a sensation. Instead of the individual event stops, as was usual this year with the BLAST Pro Series, the new format BLAST Premier will be played in several weeks.

Organizer shakes the format

Following the announcement of this year’s Global Finals in Bahrain, the next milestone is to follow in 2020. The new BLAST Premier tournament series will also be divided into spring and autumn finals. The highlight of the season will be the Global Final, in which a large part of the prize pool of 4.25 million US dollars will be distributed. The winner alone will win one million US dollars.

The fans should also be pleased with an innovation. Instead of the short-lived best-of-one matches, only games in the best-of-three will take place. Thus RFRSH Entertainment reacts to the criticism of the Community, which wished itself already months ago similar changes with the BLAST pro Series.

Surprise endgame in Russia

Only a few had expected this final constellation. The teams AVANGAR and forZe came with an invitation to the BLAST Pro Series Moscow and made it directly into the final. Although Natus Vincere disappointed the Russian fans, the two underdogs AVANGAR and forZe made the crowd go wild in Moscow. The regional fan favourites put the top teams in their place. The lineups of ninjas in pyjamas, MIBR and ENCE, could not keep up.

The Most Valuable Player (MVP) was Dzhami “Jame” Ali. The star player of AVANGAR helped his team with a strong performance to a 2:1 victory against forZe. With 70 kills, the local hero was by far the best player and could crown his already good tournament performance in the final.

Meanwhile, Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko experienced a bitter end to his career. The 31-year-old in Natus Vincere’s dress landed with his team on the last place and could not use the “home advantage” at the Kremlin. Thus his last tournament as an active player ended without a victory. Nevertheless, the Ukrainian can look back on an outstanding career. This includes a major title as well as two further major final participations and the success at the ESL One Cologne 2018.
