Blast Pro Series Copenhagen 2018 review

All eyes on the biggest star of Counter-Strike. S1mple is back baby!

After a successful stop in Istanbul, Blast Pro Series returned back to the Danish capital, Copenhagen to welcome six world-class teams through the whole world to compete in 16,000-seater Royal Arena with $250,000 on the line. 

After a group stage, the biggest favourite of this tournament, home team Astralis didn’t win all the matches as planned (ended up on the 3rd place) while their biggest rival from Ukraine, team Natus Vincere started leading the group. On the other hand, Brazilian living legends from Made in Brazil showed really poor performance (didn’t win a single match) and ended up on the last place of the group. Let’s have a look on ranking after a group stage:

After the first day in Denmark, Astralis picked an American Cloud9 as their opponent for the decisive match which Danes won closely 14:16 on de_inferno and secured the place on this event with $25,000. The last match of the day was the grand final including the second best team in the world, Natus Vincere against the Swedish veterans from NiP. Classic best-of-three series started on de_mirage where Ukrainian stars smashed the NiP and started leading the series 1:0. Moving on its second map, de_inferno, young and bloody duo Aleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev and Denis "electronic" Sharipov showed why the whole world should be afraid of them, while the both turned on the BEAST mode and ended the tournament for Ukraine 2:0.
