NASR qualify for BLAST Premier Spring Showdown
NASR have joined the likes of Astralis, Liquid and Vitality in the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown after coming out on top of the Dune Cup, a BLAST qualifier for the MENA region. The team made it through the GSL groups with a 2-1 record before taking down HLTZINC and Divine Vendetta in the single-elimination playoffs to secure qualification to the Showdown event.
Nuke was up next and NASR carried over their momentum to storm to an 11-4 T half, but loosened their grip on the tie as Divine Vendetta mounted a strong comeback to force overtime. However, BOROS refused to allow a third map to come around and posted his 40th kill on Nuke to wrap the series up 22-19, ending the grand final with a 1.39 rating.
