BLAST Premier Spring Final 2022 begins

Good news for all of you who can’t get enough of eSports!

The BLAST Premier Spring Final 2022 qualifiers have begun on Wednesday, which means it’s time to put up your CS:GO Fantasy teams.

The games for both areas have been launched, with the BLAST Showdown starting on Wednesday! With the $1,000,000 budget available in both areas, you now have the opportunity to assemble the finest possible team.

Because the event is held in a one-match elimination format, understanding how the bracket will turn out is critical to forming a strong team. It’s critical that your players advance as far as possible in the competition without meeting each other early on.

BLAST Premier Spring Final 2022 Top EU picks

The most popular picks in the European qualification are “NIP” and the two Danish organizations “Astralis” and “Heroic”. Given their current form, it’s surprising that ENCE players aren’t popular picks, but that’s likely owing to their first-round matchup with the Copenhagen Flames.

This means that Fredrik “REZ” Sterner is the most popular player, which is unsurprising given his recent improvement — he has an average rating of 1.15 in the last four months. Other popular choices include the Heroic three of Casper “cadiaN” Mller, Ismail “refrezh” Ali, and René “TeSeS” Madsen, who are no doubt spurred by the fact that the Danish will face the tournament’s lowest-ranked team, NKT, in the first round.

Pavle “Maden” Bokovi, who could give stellar performances if his side goes well during the tough bracket, is another less popular option who could be of significant importance for your squad.Asger “Farlig” Jensen is a low-cost alternative for the awper role, with a price-tag of $189,000, you’ll have some extra cash to play with.

Top North American picks

Two clear favourites have emerged on the North American side of the spectrum. Seven of the eight highest popular players in the tournament are from FURIA and Liquid, which is unsurprising given that they are the 2 highest-ranked teams in the event. Given that all the guys from the two contenders are feasible options, getting the right mix of stars and underperforming support players will be crucial to win.

André “drop” Abreu is the most popular choice thus far, backed by his FURIA comrade, Andrei “arT” Piovezan. Adriano “WOOD7” Cerato is eligible for the AWP job if you want to go with some of the less well-known individuals, but his squad is in a tough bracket. The complete GODSENT team is also a viable budget option, but please remember that they will almost surely face FURIA in the following round.

Final thoughts

Fantasy games are fantastic for staying engaged with the ongoing tournaments and winning lucrative prizes along the way. Not only do you get to test your understanding of the game, but gain some valuable items as well.

The reward pool includes $10,000 for the season winners, followed by some rare CSGO skins like Navaja Knife – Crimson Web, AWP Wildfire, AK-47 Bloodsport, M4A4-S Dark Water and AWP Neo-Noir.
