Blast Pro Series talent lineup revealed; Four new tournaments announced.

The broadcast talent team for Blast Pro Series has been revealed. Serving as the host will be Paul ‘RedEye’ Chaloner. He will be accompanied by a bevvy of talent including former players Maniac and Spunj. They were recently a part of the EPICENTER 2018 and needless to say the entire experience was very satisfactory.

The casting talent lineup features a wide range of people. They have Mohan “launders” Govindasamy and Conner “Scrawny” Girvan on one end. However, they also have the likes of Anders Blume and Jason “moses” O’Toole and Matthew “Sadokist” Trivett and Henry “HenryG” Greerm for the tournament. This diverse lineup definitely is going to cater to a wide array of fans and viewers.

Blast Pro Series Copenhagen

Blast Pro Series takes place on November 2-3 at Copenhagen. The 12,000 seater venue is already sold out and it is going to be an exciting event for sure. The total cash prize pool for the tournament is $250,000.

The format for the event is definitely one that could do with some tweaking. Owing to the limited time period, all the Best of One matches on Day 1 will take place simultaneously. So fans will have to choose between multiple streams. This does mean that their viewership numbers will admittedly be quite low.

Four new Events around the world.

The tournament organiser has already announced four new Pro Series events spread across the world. The cities where these events will take place are Lisbon, Miami, Sao Paolo and Madrid. Three events, namely Sao Paolo, Miami and Madrid will take place back to back from March to May 2019. The prize pool remains same across the tournaments at $250,000.

The Lisbon tournament will take place in December 2018. The dates for the tournament are 14th and 15th. We assume it will have a similar format to the current event. The first five teams attending the event have already been announced. Made in Brazil, faze Clan, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Cloud9 and Astralis will all attend the tournament.

With the tournaments being extremely close to each other, it remains to be seen whether and how the top teams will fit them into their schedule. For now, tickets for the Lisbon tournament can be found here.
