Finally, with each day, we’re getting very close to the BLAST Premier World Finals 2022. Accordingly, as the final chapter of the BLAST Premier season this year, we can’t wait. Bearing this in mind, feel free to read on to learn how to watch this highly anticipated CS:GO event below!
Organized by BLAST, the BLAST Premier is a premier series of CS:GO esports. Taking place offline, the top 8 teams in the series have fought all year long to make it to the Abu Dhabi, Etihand Arena in the coming week.
Specifically, the event will run from 14th December to 18th December. Beyond the title, the teams are competing for an incredible $1,000,000 prize pool overall.
Here are the 8 competitors and their parameters for qualification below:
- Natus Vincere – Spring Finals
- Heroic – Fall Finals
- FaZe Clan – ESL S15 and PGL Major
- Outsiders – IEM Rio Major 2022
- Team Vitality – ESL Pro League Season 16
- G2 Esports – Global Leaderboard
- OG – Global Leaderboard
- Team Liquid – Global Leaderboard
Read on as we dive deeper into the format below!
With regards to the format, there are two stages of competition to enjoy.
Firstly, the Group Stage will involve two double-eliminaiton format Groups (GSL). With each group having 4 teams, each match will be BO3.
For those who are unaware, GSL format means that qualification involves teams having to win 2 games. The one team who fails to win 2 games will be eliminated.
Accordingly, here’s what the groups look like:
- A: FaZe Clan, Outsiders, G2 Esports, Team Liquid
- B: Natus Vincere, Heroic, Team Vitality, OG
Following the completion of the Group Stage, seeding into the Playoffs will involve the following:
- Winners – advance to the Semifinals
- Runners-up – advance to the Quarterfinals as the High Seeds
- 3rd place – advance to the Quarterfinals as the Low Seeds
In succession, the playoffs will involve a single elimination bracket, with BO3 matches. Once here, teams have one single life to make it to the next stage of competition. On 18th December, a new champion of the BLAST Premier will be crowned for 2022, ending the year in epic fashion.
