BLAST Pro Series Global Final viewer's guide

With the start of the BLAST Pro Series Global Final closing in, we bring you the most important information about the tournament in the form of a viewer's guide.

BLAST Pro Series Global Final will take place in Riffa, Bahrain, on December 12-14. The three-day event will feature four teams that earned the most points at BLAST tournaments throughout the year: Astralis, Liquid, FaZe, and NiP.

Liquid are looking to break their dry spell in Bahrain

The squads will face off in a double-elimination BO3 bracket, with $500,000 on the line. The first day, Thursday, is reserved for the semi-finals, the upper and lower bracket finals will follow on Friday, and the consolidation final, grand final, and BLAST Stand-off will finish off the action on Saturday.

Being the only team to secure two BLAST Pro Series wins in 2019, FaZe finished the season with the highest number of points, 30, which sees them open up the tournament against NiP, while the two main favorites, Liquid and Astralis, will square off on the stage after them.

Great environment, really good fun. No doubt. But put two matches on at the same time, one from each event and I'll surely watch the blast one. Summit simply does not have the same weight...

"Liquid are looking to break their dry spell in Bahrain" good luck against those teams, they have a chance against NiP though
2019-12-11 01:53
Anders and Semmler WOW !!
2019-12-11 02:25
Lets be honest this GLOBAL FINAL is full bs. This tournament is a shitshow all over. This is tailored to grant Astralis price money and safe taxes in the end by giving the money „to another Organization“ which is basically the same company. The only thing they provide is money for the teams. No tension at all. Fuck em.
2019-12-11 12:41
shut up and have some respect
2019-12-11 17:57
Hope Faze wins this one
