BLAST Pro Series São Paulo round-robin maps revealed

RFRSH Entertainment has revealed the map picks for the round-robin stage of BLAST Pro Series São Paulo.

Inferno was surprisingly banned in all vetos and Mirage was let through just once, while Dust2 was the most picked map, featuring in a third of the 15 best-of-one clashes that will be played at the Ginásio do Ibirapuera, four of them in matches involving Astralis.

Nuke will be featured three times in the round-robin stage, one of which in the match between FaZe and MIBR. It will be interesting to see how the Brazilians, who used to stay away from Nuke, will fare against top tier opposition on this map after beating AGO on it at the recent WESG Finals.

The map picks for BLAST Pro Series São Paulo are in

BLAST Pro Series São Paulo will kick off on Friday, with six teams vying for two spots in the best-of-three grand final, which will determine the winner of the grand prize of $125,000.

nobody is letting them have inferno or nuke and tbh if i was astralis i would have tried to get train a bunch so teams fear them on that map again.

In this tournament the organizers select the maps for each game. This is unfair as some teams are playing on their worst maps (FaZe, ENCE, MiBR) and some are playing on their best (Astralis). Normally in tournaments there is a map veto process where each team can ban a map or two and select one. Why does this one have to be so fucking shitty and different.
