OKBET ESPORTS NEWS : CS GO BLAST
Recent indications indicate that BLAST will likely organize the Spring CS:GO Majors next year. After its trip in South America for the IEM Masters in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the action will return to Europe.
According to Dexerto, Paris will be the preferred destination, while this is yet unknown, because it has been “BLAST’s priority from day one and is the likely decision.” The tournament will be contested between May 8 and 21, the same dates as the PGL Antwerp Majors this year.
The Danish firm, formerly known as RFRSH Entertainment, is hosting a Valve-sponsored big tournament for the first time in its six-year history. The undertaking of an event of this magnitude will be the company’s most ambitious endeavor in its entire history.
EXTINGUISH PREMIER CIRCUIT
However, they have held significant events around the world, most notably the BLAST Premier circuit, and have always gotten accolades from players and fans for the production and broadcast quality of their events. The CS:GO community has been requesting a BLAST-sponsored major for some time now, and they will eagerly await the day it becomes a reality.
The inaugural BLAST Premier competition began in 2020. Despite the impact of the pandemic on the live esports industry, the tournament achieved unparalleled levels of popularity and success.
Despite the fact that the event that year did not permit live spectators, the final between Natus Vincere and Astralis attracted a record 568,406 live viewers. The tournament’s most-watched match was the lower bracket final between Na Vi and Team Vitality, a 2-1 thriller that garnered 687,691 views.
The BLAST Premier spans two seasons, Spring and Fall, and includes twelve partner teams. The tournament is often segmented into seven competitions over the course of the year, including the Spring Groups, Showdowns, and Finals, as well as its Fall counterpart.
HUGE REWARDS UP FOR GRABS
There are almost 2 million dollars in total winnings throughout all of these tournaments, so consistency is highly rewarded. The Spring and Fall Finals each feature a $425,000 prize pool, while the Groups receive $177,498. At Showdowns, a total of $135,000 is divided among the competing teams.
The event concludes with a season final including the top eight teams and a live audience for the latter stages. These eight teams will split $1,000,000 in prize money. Last year’s champions, Na Vi, took home $500,000 in prize money, while runners-up Gambit Esports received $425,000.
Although the BLAST Premiers have the most financial incentive, there is room for improvement in terms of the variety of players who can compete in this tournament. The fact that there is only room for 12 teams results in a more exclusive environment, in which many of the same teams compete year after year. On the other hand, one could argue that this exclusivity guarantees a high-quality competition between the best of the best in the field.
The majors are generally acknowledged to be the largest and most important CS:GO competitions, each offering a prize fund of at least one million United States dollars. Since the ELEAGUE Majors were held in Boston in 2018, Valve has created a new overall tournament format, which includes the Offline Qualifier as a component of the Major Championship. This change came about after the ELEAGUE Majors were held in Boston. As a result of these modifications, the number of teams competing in the Major Championships has expanded from 16 to 24, and each stage of the competition has been given a new name.
PGL, a Hungarian esports production group, has been in charge of hosting the Majors for the past couple of years, and the tournament that took place in 2022 in Germany’s Antwerp was one of PGL’s events. The competition took place from the 9th to the 22nd of May, and it featured 16 of the best teams from across the world competing for the crown. The champions of this year’s competition were Faze Clan, who took home $500,000, while Na Vi, who came in second, received $150,000.
