Na`Vi round off BLAST Pro Series Lisbon team list

The champions from the Copenhagen stop on the BLAST Pro circuit will also be present in the Portuguese capital, RFRSH have announced.

Natus Vincere will travel to Lisbon to fight for a chance to win another BLAST Pro event, set to take place on December 14-15 in the Altice Arena and feature a $250,000 prize pool.

Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev and co. are the defending champions in the event series after they won BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen by beating NiP 2-0 in the final, the 21-year-old superstar also claiming the MVP medal in the Danish capital.

s1mple and Na`Vi will attempt to lift the BLAST trophy again in Lisbon

Natus Vincere couldn't carry over their victory to IEM Chicago, as they bombed out of the group stage with losses to eUnited and BIG. Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko' men will come back to Denmark to play the ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals in Odense before going to Portugal to defend their title at BLAST Pro Series.

With the CIS side inbound, the Lisbon tournament will feature the same six teams who did battle in Copenhagen in early November. The full team list looks as follows:

cuz they dont invite other teams. 4th blast in a row with no liquid lmao. hltv pls lower points for this shit tournament. thanks.
2018-11-16 10:46
why would they invite liquid, they are gonna be 2nd anyway lmao
2018-11-16 10:50
better than c9 anyway

for a chill 2 day 6 team event with 250k while it impacts your rankings(navi got a shit ton of points for winning 3 bo1s and a bo3) hell ye. also id feel pretty confident in bo1s against even astralis and there is a chance they also wont make it to finals. they would def said yes.
2018-11-16 11:32
impact ranking :DDD you think teams care about hltv rankings that much LUL? also, for TL it is flying to other continent with 5-6-7 hours time difference, so i dont think they are eager to participate. Especially, when it takes place after EPL finals which are usually last event before xmas/new year

To be fair, liquid would already be in Europe for EPL and could probably just bootcamp at the rfrsh offices a few days so I wouldn't say that the flight is the problem.

last blast was the same ? like actually same 6 teams is a bit suspicious its free money anyway, and u just play bo1 and 1 final thats it
2018-11-16 11:54
imagine last blast invitation for TL: 1) live in US 2) go to EU for blast 3) get jetlagged cuz not only you are changing timezone but going from west to east which is always harder than vice versa 4) after blast immediately go back to US to play IEM 5) get super jetlagged and tilted
2018-11-16 12:02
And MIBR?
2018-11-16 12:27
They obviously like to be jetlagged etc. - those are their main excuses, after all.
2018-11-16 12:33
Understand
2018-11-16 12:40
They have #1, 2, 4, 6, 7 and cloud9. Shit tournament? I think no, moron. :)

True, why always the same teams? It's inflating the rating and boring on top of that. Hltv should keep an eye on that.
2018-11-16 13:09
yeah...they shud remove c9 or nip and add liquid

i guess having the two most popular csgo teams in fanbase+brand is the reason. they attract audience. same with blast istanbul when they invited spacesoldiers. +mibr. still if they are going for brand value they can still do a 2 day 8 team event without that bulsshit bo1 format. even the old lose 2 bo1s get elimiinated major format was better than this.

Invite only yes, Invite tier 3 no. They only invite tier 1 dumbass Only invite same teams. Yes because they wont invite stupid sucky teams who are participating in other tournaments at the time... Think with your brain not your ass Yes the format is shit, it makes it harder for especially Astralis since they work on Teamwork, Strats and fakes. While other teams like FaZe and Navi works on running and shooting everyone..

Could make a case for NIP but MIBR is dogshit an you know it, only there because they attend tier 3 tournaments to boost their stats
2018-11-16 19:38
Well i dont agree with you. In some matches they choke so hard thats true. But they were almost beating Astralis at Blast Pro Series Istanbul. I think they are just bad at groupstages.
2018-11-16 20:41
thats bullshit, firstly they made it there because the blast format is terrible and "almost beating" someone is a terrible argument, 1 bo doesnt make them good especially when theyve shown terrible CS all year long
