BLAST Premier Fall combined into one region; BIG, FURIA replace 100 Thieves, Liquid in first stage

The organizers confirmed that the Fall season will be played online in one, combined region and revealed that BIG and FURIA will replace 100 Thieves and Liquid in the "Series" stage.

100 Thieves are excluded from the event after the United States-based side, one of BLAST's twelve long-term partner organizations, announced its exit from CS:GO, which will come into effect at the conclusion of IEM New York later this week.

Meanwhile, unlike Evil Geniuses who will make two separate trips to Europe to take part in the entire BLAST Premier season as well as in the North American division of IEM Beijing, Liquid will skip the first stage and will only begin their campaign in the Fall season in the Showdown tournament, which will run from November 23-29.

BLAST Premier Fall is set to bring Europe and North America back together

BLAST's decision to de-regionalize the first two stages of the Fall season comes as little surprise after HLTV.org reported earlier this month that several North American teams were deciding on making a trip to Europe for the end of the 2020 season, with the Denmark-based organizer being one of the main driving forces behind the plan.

The move will make BLAST Premier Fall Series the first tournament to pit multiple of North America's best teams up against the brunt of European competition since the coronavirus pandemic struck in March and left tournament organizers with no option but to separate their events into regional divisions.

The Fall Series now comprises ten out of the top twelve teams according to HLTV.org's World Ranking from October 12, as well as NiP (No. 16) and MIBR, who are currently unranked as they only have two players on the roster after placing Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga, Epitacio "⁠TACO⁠" de Melo, and Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo on the bench in mid-September.

The team list for BLAST Premier Fall Series, which will take place on October 26 to November 4, now looks as follows:

FURIA is basically an NA team, they've been playing in NA this entire time. Also if burgers truly believe EG is #1 than here's their chance to prove it.
2020-10-15 15:16
by your logic NA have 2 majors since LG/SK played there the entire time
2020-10-15 18:56
What i mean by that is that they're playing an NA style of CS, if they suck in EU and EG sucks aswell it shows that NA really was and still is dogshit

Its not a big thing they just gotta grind through showdown and they will play global finals, I think they decided to skip it so that they can practise for other events or they are actually scared that they may lose

it's almost definitely going to be the remnants of the 100T roster so you probably won't hear anything until after IEM NY, they get lots of valuable RMR points. nothing else makes sense right now, they're not getting any Brazilian players who can make a remotely competitive roster.
2020-10-14 18:13

But why the #6?
2020-10-14 18:22
They are not TOP 6 rn.
2020-10-14 20:35
HLTV ranking is based off on a long time performance, and atm. BIG isn't top 6 for sure.
2020-10-14 23:40
they arent very in form right now but who else would you put in front of them? NA teams that arent proven against EU competition? OG and FaZe that had 1 good tournament? G2 isnt too hot right now either, col yet to confirm jks. Anyways even if you dont consider them top6, BIG totally deserve to finally play a Blast event, i just hope they get rid of MiBr for Heroic and we have the perfect tournament
2020-10-15 00:11
OG, they have been good for a long time. And I don't think BIG deserve it rn.
