Posted 23rd November 2017 By: Kyle-Tipify Staff    187 Views
After the Intel Extreme Masters Oakland, the next major CS:GO tournament features the BLAST Pro Series in Copenhagen, Denmark. Although only six of the world’s best CS:GO teams have been invited to compete on November 24 to 25, CS:GO fans and bettors can still expect thrill-inducing action from start to finish.
RFRSH Entertainment is in charge of organizing the tournament. They have limited the competing teams because each team will face each of the participating teams in simultaneous matches in front of a live audience, which balances out the exposure given to the teams. The two-day event’s format introduces a group stage with a single round robin elimination. But only the top two teams in each group automatically advance to the Grand Finals and that will be the only playoff round in this tournament. For the four teams that failed to qualify for the playoffs, they will enter the BLAST Pro Standoffs serving as a ‘showmatch’ to the audience. The 3rd placer gets the advantage of choosing their opponent from any of the 3 teams, thus creating an instant match-up between the two remaining teams. Winners of the BLAST Pro Standoff gets an additional bonus prize of $ 10,000. The tournament’s prize pool highlights a lucrative $250,000 pot, which should keep the competitive levels high.
Which teams will compete in BLAST Pro?
IEM Oakland Champions, Ninjas In Pyjamas are coming off as favorites for this tournament. But IEM Oakland finalist, FaZe Clan is looking for retribution from their loss to the Swedes. Also, IEM Oakland competitors in Astralis, G2 Esports, and SK Gaming will definitely fight for the top spot. Although, Danish CS:GO team, North is sure to defend their homeland against the top teams.
