Finally, after roughly a month break for the players, competitive CS:GO is ready for another exciting season. Indeed, kicking things off we have the BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022. Read on as we let you know how to watch this epic event!
Accordingly, the event will run from 19th August to 28th August. With $177,498 on the line, the competition will take place offline in Copenhagen.
For those unaware, this event forms part of the premier CS:GO series organized by organizer, BLAST – BLAST Premier. Bearing this in mind, we have the partnered teams once again competing:
- Evil Geniuses
- FaZe Clan
- G2 Esports
- Natus Vincere
- Ninjas in Pyjamas
- Team Liquid
- Team Vitality
Do note that apart from the prize pool, teams are fighting for BLAST Premier Points and also, seeds as follows:
- 1-6th – Fall Finals
- 7-12th – Fall Showdown
Let’s learn more about the event below!
Overall, there will be three stages of competition.
Firstly, we have the Group Stage, which features three groups of four. Within each group, a double elimination GSL format will take place, with BO1 matches. Basically, teams at this stage will be doing their best to seed into the Play-In Stage.
Below find the teams for each Group listed together with the opening matches:
- A: Vitality, OG, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Astralis
- Vitality vs OG
- NiP vs Astralis
- B: Natus Vincere, Complexity, G2 Esports, Team Liquid
- Natus Vincere vs Complexity
- G2 Esports vs Team Liquid
- C: FaZe Clan, Evil Geniuses, Heroic, BIG
- FaZe Clan vs Evil Geniuses
- Heroic vs BIG
Depending on the placing in the Groups, teams will be seeded into the Play In Stage as specified:
- 3-4th – Quarterfinals
- 2nd place – Semifinals
- 1st place – Finals
Seeded into three single elimination gauntlets, all matches are BO3. Notably, winners from each gauntlet advances directly to the Fall Finals.
Meanwhile, second and third from each gauntlet will advance to the Last Chance Stage and fourth will seed into the Fall Showdown.
As you can imagine, the Last Chance is the final opportunity for teams to make it directly to the Fall Finals. Here, another single elimination with BO3 matches will determine that winners advance to the Fall Finals and losers will have to fight through the Fall Showdown.
