Fiend qualify for BLAST Premier Fall Showdown

The Bulgarian squad beat Sinners in the final to top TWR Eastern European Masters Fall.

Fiend completed the TWR Eastern European Masters Fall gauntlet undefeated to secure a spot at the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown.

One of the early upsets in the qualifier was the elimination of Eternal Fire in the group stage. The Turks beat BLUEJAYS to start things off but then fell to Fiend and ultimately went out after the decider match in Group B, where they lost to a vengeful BLUEJAYS.

In the other group, Group A, it was favorites Sinners who topped the group after recently playing at the top level for the first time at ESL Pro League — even beating G2 —, and coming into the tournament from winning the V4 Future Sports Festival Open Qualifier without a hitch, showing a dominant run of form.

Behind the Czech team it was Nexus who also made it to the playoffs, while leaving behind NOM and Budapest Five.

The playoffs started off in the semi-finals, with Sinners taking on BLUEJAYS and Fiend taking on Nexus, and it was the Czech and Bulgarian teams that breezed through their matches to set-up the anticipated final between the two highest ranked teams at the tournament.

Fiend made themselves strong early on in the final series, handing Sinners their first map loss in the tournament on Inferno, but it was then Sebastian "⁠beastik⁠" Daňo and company who retaliated on their pick, Nuke, to hand Fiend their first map loss of the event.

Finally, on Mirage, it was the Bulgarians who took the lead on the CT side, hitting double digits before the switch. Sinners won the second pistol round to stay alive, but were quickly overwhelmed in the gun rounds, losing hold of their economy and falling too far behind as Fiend closed out procedures to qualify for the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown.
