Event: BLAST Pro Series Miami 2019
A very popular event, BLAST Pro Series, will this time arrive to one of the biggest cities in the USA, Miami. 6 top tier teams will play against each other in the league format, which eventually will reveal two best teams that will play in the Grand Final for half of the prize pool – 125 000$.
First two rounds of the tournament will be played without audience. Fans will be able to cheer for their favourite teams starting from the third round of group stage and of course during BLAST Pro Series Stand-of and Grand Final.
Probably the most interesting thing in the upcoming event will be performance of MIBR. Brazilians during recent tournament in China StarLadder Series i-League Season 7 won only one match against Panda and were quickly eliminated from the event. BLAST seems to be a good opportunity for FalleN and his teammates to find their form and bounce back.
On the other hand Natus Vincere showed amazing performance in the last two weeks but the tournament in China was lacking two best teams according to the HLTV`s ranking – Astralis and Team Liquid. Both teams will be present in Miami so this event will be a real test for the Ukrainian organization.
Apart from mentioned teams we will also see Cloud9 and FaZe Clan. Although both of them are having their problems, they can still surprise us. BLAST Pro Series in Miami will be first tournament where C9 will play with their newest addition to the squad, René “cajunb” Borg. Will NA side perform better with Dane in their roster than they did with Fabien “kioShiMa” Fiey? Time will tell.
Event in Florida should be as interesting and intense as every other BLAST Pro Series tournament in the past, because as always all the matches will be played almost without any breaks.
