With BLAST Premier’s Global Finals just around the corner, Richard Lewis & Chad ‘SPUNJ’ Burchill discuss the top talking points going into one of CS:GO’s biggest events. The pair delve into the nightmare scenario Complexity find themselves in with Jakob ‘JUGi’ Hansen standing in for the injured Valentin ‘poizon’ Vasilev.
The two sit down and debate whether Team Vitality will make quick work of Complexity, or if BlameF’s struggling side will shock Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut and co, also touching on Team Liquid’s new signing and Na’Vi’s form going into the event.
BLAST’s event is huge for the CSGO scene, and Complexity’s current struggles are sure to become apparent during the event. With a phenomenal roster of teams that are playing for the win in 2021’s first major event, AWPer poizon recently underwent emergency surgery on December 18th, 2020. Unable to compete, how will the team fare without the vital piece of the team’s puzzle?
In comparison, Vitality had a great end to the year, even monetarily holding the top 1 spot before Astralis was able to get ahead in the last week of 2020’s competitive season. Winning IEM Beijing, the team is in an incredibly sweet spot that will no doubt provide some fantastic plays.
Our preview also goes in to cover in further detail Gabriel ‘FalleN’ Toledo joining Liquid, NAVI possibly starting BLAST with Bruno ‘bit’ Lima, and G2 as an upcoming dark horse to watch out for.
