September 20th, 2018 17:42

RFRSH Entertainment has revealed the map picks for the round-robin matches of BLAST Pro Series Istanbul.

Without surprise, Overpass and Train were banned in all vetos, while Mirage was the most picked map, featuring in six of the 15 round robin matches.

The stand-out match of the opening stage, pitting Astralis against MIBR in round 5, will be played on Dust2, the same map where the Danes thrashed Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's side 16-0 at the FACEIT Major.

MIBR will meet Astralis on Dust2 again

BLAST Pro Series will run from September 28-29 at the Ülker Sports Arena, with six teams squaring off for the bulk of the tournament's $250,000 prize pool. The top two sides of the round-robin stage will progress to the best-of-three grand final, on Saturday at 18:00.

The map picks for the opening stage are the following:

Round 1

Turkey Space Soldiers vs. Sweden NiP| Mirage
Brazil MIBR vs. United States Cloud9| Dust2
Poland Virtus.pro vs. Denmark Astralis| Inferno

Round 2

Turkey Space Soldiers vs. Denmark Astralis| Inferno

esl one new york is played at the same time so all the other top tems are there
2018-09-20 17:45
yea but there is still much much more talented teams
2018-09-20 17:46
yeah, ofc, but vp is a popular brand , some ads + there are still people who would prefer to watch vp's , match over liquid-faze, fro example, so idk
2018-09-20 17:49
who wants to watch VP get stomped ? Not me. I'd rather see a team like KInguin, Complexity or ENCE challenge the big dogs.
2018-09-20 17:52
u would but it's the first time vp are in Turkey ,for example, so it's really cool for local people to see them in real
2018-09-20 17:53
there is just 2/5 original members left on VP, not too cool IMO.

This isn’t a real event it is made more for the fans than a good tournament. If it were a tier1 event FaZe and Liquid would be here instead of VP and Cloud9

FaZe and Liquid in ESL NY
2018-09-20 17:51
You think they were invited yesterday? They moved an event back in June due to election and was forced to keep the invites until now. Back then, VP was good. Go read up on cs:go before commenting in here, little nerd.
2018-09-21 11:30
C9 and Space Soldiers are there too...VP at least is ahead of those 2 on improving
