Blast format is crap, Bo1 round robin and then no playoffs before the final
Both are low prestige events.
ESL One New York is already lacking in prestige compared to Katowice and Cologne. Without the best team in the world there, any win is kind of meaningless. If Navi or Liquid win, everyone will say "but Astralis wasn't there". And if a team like FaZe or G2 win, all it will really do is delay inevitable and necessary roster changes.
Blast Pro Series has no reputation or prestige at all, and the level of competition for Astralis is a joke. Winning should be a formality for them. Just a cheap way to bolster their claim to having an "era". And if one of the other teams win, people will just call it a fluke upset or say that Astralis still had one hand on the major trophy.
they wont even be at the same times for most games. ill watch new york tho
NY, cause I'm going to the event. But I'll still try to watch Blast.
ESL NY lineup : 4 teams from top 5
Blast lineup: 1 team from top 5 and others just tier2 teams
The answer is obvious i guess
I am going to Blast Pro, but even if Space and MIBR weren't, i wouldn't
Both but mostly blast bc it’s on twitch
probably both, depends on the schedule really i will just choose the better matches of either event
ESL One NY cause it's Liquid's biggest chance at a Premier title
Just shut up gay go sleep
Alteast esl one ny will have good games
Blast will just be astralis raping everyone ResidentSleeper
Definitly watching the BLAST on turkey (also im guessing its on twitch, ESL is on FB, so fuck no im not going back to FB). And I follow sports a lot, and know how crazy and passionate these Turks are, at least on pro sports, talking about the fans.. probably will be same in CS lol.
i'm watch both. both will be better than major :sad:
Don't wanna watch venue exploding so NY.
I would go with Blast series.
blast - tier 2 tournament with Astralis
You can watch both btw. Both have different timings
I’m watching Blast Pro Series because I like the teams attending.
To your comment concerning Astralis playing boringly they simply don’t make mistakes, go for risky plays, or ever really seem to have fun in the way that is the absolute heart and soul of CS for some. They rely on nades to slow down the opponents best player instead of really showing their skill for the aim and heart of the game.
Blast-t2 event which anyway will win astralis
Astralis are boring. im faceit lvl 5
ESL One NY>Blast Istanbul
Blast pro obv, I'm not watching cs on facebook. That's just not allowed.
New york so i can not worry about who wins
I think that the Blast pro series will not be a live broadcast as at their previous tournament
They overlap a little, just watch both, or just watch the matchups that are more interesting for you
New York Better but I'll watch blast too
I'll go to blast pro series. because it's on my city xd. i hope our fans will be great .
