In the group stage, two frontrunners emerged, with FaZe Clan’s domination continuing on as they topped Group A with a 2-0 scoreline and qualified for the semifinals of BLAST Premier Fall Final 2023. In Group B, we saw Team Vitality, led by Dan ‘apEX’ Madesclair, smash the competition for their 2-0 scoreline and birth into the semifinal.

In the first quarterfinal, we saw Complexity with South African IGL Johnny ” JT” Theodosiou and coach Tiaan “T.c.” Coertzen reverse-sweep the new Na’Vi squad in dramatic fashion, before losing 2-1 to FaZe Clan in the semifinal. On the other side of the bracket, Cloud9 swept Heroic under the rug but got stopped in their tracks by Team Vitality, with the French organization’s CS2 team being on point for the 2-1 victory.

In the grand final of BLAST Premier Fall Final 2023, Team Vitality went into overdrive, crushing FaZe Clan 13-3 on Vertigo and finishing off the tournament with a close 13-11 win on Nuke to claim the trophy and the first-place prize!
