Finally top teams are coming to turkey
will probably watch esl new york myself
Astralis have to go due to sponsorships
Pretty sure it's because it's a Refrsh event.
And also, Device's stomach hurts when they take long flights, as he said when they went to ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals.
Because BPS was originally in June and has been rescheduled because if snap elections in Turkey and so on, originally didn't conflict with ESL NY
They give the chance to Navi to win at least smt
They are working together with RFRSH, who made the BLAST tournament in Istanbul. Of course they'll go lmao
Blast-Shit t2 event
1. Device's stomach problems. To much travel time to New York which results in unnecessary stress which literally is the cause of his illness.
2. Rfrsh. I don't think astralis is in anyway forced to attend BPS but rfrsh is probably also a factor in them going to BPS. Also, i think Astralis quite enjoy the unique format.
3. Preparation time. Astralis often skip events to gain more preparation time. As i mentioned before, BPS uses a unique format. A format which i would say is a lot more chill for the teams. And with the chill format they're probably not compelled to use all of their strats at this event. Also, BPS was originally on a different day which probably fitted better into their schedule.
FaZe won't win haha dont worry
pretty sure Astralis has a contract to play at Blast events, since the first was in Denmark and they paid Ast to play there for publicity
Otherwise theres no reason to not play ESL NY, the prestige for the grand slam is so big
Ez for astralis another secured trophy
What is this format in turkey... all bo1 and then top 2 teams in bo3 lol
If i m not mistaken Blast is a danish organization. That is why astralis is there...
i hope astralis get bombed in turkey :)
