The BLAST Premier Fall Final was the first S-tier CS:GO tournament after the conclusion of the PGL Major Stockholm—the first Valve-sponsored tournament in over two years.
Eight of the best CS:GO teams in the world played at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark, for their share of the $425,000 prize pool and a spot in the $1 million BLAST Premier World Final in December. The tournament ran from Nov. 24 to 28 with a double-elimination format, and competitors played in front of a live audience over the weekend.
Natus Vincere headed into the event as huge favorites after winning the Major, cementing their status as the most in-form team over the past few months. Astralis and Ninjas in Pyjamas debuted new players, so they’re more of a dark horse than anything. The tournament roster is completed by Heroic, FaZe Clan, and BIG, who haven’t made player changes so far, and Team Liquid and Vitality, who are on the brink of making deep roster moves.
