BLAST Premier Teams
According to the event’s website, fans of the esport should be excited to see that not only are the top three teams going to be participating but so will some fan favorites. Ranking #1, #2, and #3 respectively will be Astralis, Vitality, and Navi. The other teams will be Furia, G2, Team Liquid, Complexity, and Evil Geniuses. For Team Liquid, this will be the first tournament that we get to see the team play with their new AWPer, FalleN. It’ll be interesting to see how their team performs with the new, more experienced player before they head to IEM Katowice. However, Complexity does have one player out for the count, and JUGi will be standing in for them at the BLAST Premier Finals. With a change to the team happening so close to game day, it’ll be interesting to see how well the team meshes with the new addition as they wait for Poizon to recover.
