- I am looking forward to being a part of BLAST Pro Series again. It was a great setup and a wild atmosphere in Copenhagen and I am sure it is going to be amazing in Lisbon as well. Six of the best teams in the world are competing live on stage at the same time. It creates an great atmosphere and is one of the reasons I love playing at BLAST Pro Series. In Lisbon, 's1mple' and the rest of NaVi will play NiP, FaZe, Astralis, MIBR and Cloud9.
All teams which according to the MVP from Copenhagen can take the iconic trophy in Lisbon:
- It is a strong line-up we face in Lisbon, and we must play our best if we want to take another trophy. One of the things I like about the BLAST format is that all maps are known in advance. In that way, we can prepare ourselves in the best possible way, as well as we can provide spectators in the arena and around the world, world-class Counter Strike, ‘s1mple’ says.
