Cloud9's risks, BLAST winners & losers, readdressing new economy: HLTV Confirmed VOD

The 12th episode of HLTV Confirmed will air tonight at 20:00 CET, with our panel set to discuss roster moves in Cloud9 and Virtus.pro, evaluate BLAST Pro Series, and readdress the new economy.

The VOD is now available:

This time, the panel will only consist of three members – Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill, James Banks, and Milan "Striker" Švejda, as Zvonimir "Professeur" Burazin is still traveling back from São Paulo.

As always, the discussion will begin with some of the breaking news and roster moves, which saw Virtus.pro bench Mateusz "TOAO" Zawistowski and Cloud9 add Daniel "vice" Kim for a trial period.

BLAST's winners and losers will be among the main topics

We will also look back at BLAST Pro Series, which came to a close on Saturday with Astralis taking down Liquid to take the title in Brazil, and address how the new economy is beginning to play out after its LAN debut last weekend. And last but not least, the panel will look ahead at the upcoming StarSeries i-League Season 7, which is set to start on March 30.

The topics of today's show are:

- Breaking news: VP bench TOAO, Cloud9 trial vice
- Masterbettor: Prof vs. Striker
- BLAST Pro Series winners & losers
- Readdressing new economy
- StarSeries Season 7 preview

The VOD will be added to this article once the show is over. You can watch the previous episodes here or listen to them as a podcast via any of your favorite apps at anchor.fm/HLTV.

agree with striker 100 percent. Change the economy back to the old way, but losses start at 1900 (for EVERY round, not just after pistol). Economic resets are still in the game, double ecos aren't necessary on CT side, and there's no mickey mouse shit where the losing team gets rewarded for fucking up the first 7 rounds of the half edit: also agree with striker about the FAMAS. It had a sick burst fire mode back in beta but GTR complained and got it nerfed. Ever since then it's been arguably the worst gun in the game relative to its price point. Valve need to show it some love.

Better format for Blast Pro Series Grand Finals / circuit would be that you get 0 points for the placings 4-6. It's not good to get pity points for just participating. It also makes the finals better since teams like FaZe can't get there just by participating in every tournament and placing 5th in every last one of them.
