BLAST Premier Fall Finals 2021 highlights
As the favourites going into the tournament, following their win at the PGL Stockholm Major, Na’Vi didn’t disappoint. Na’Vi sliced through the competition, beating BIG very convincingly with a 2-0, then managed to get past Danish powerhouse Heroic and French side Team Vitality to make it to the grand finals.
Vitality managed to pull off a comeback against Astralis, despite the Danish legends going up 1-0 in the series on their home turf.
Check out the video below showcasing highlights of the match between Vitality and Na’Vi.
In the grand final, we saw Na’Vi take the first map, Mirage, in a close 16-12 affair. Vitality didn’t go down without a fight, shocking the crowd as they won 16-6 on Nuke, Na’Vi’s best map. So, it came down to Inferno as the deciding map.
On Inferno, Na’Vi bounced back with style, sweeping Vitality under the rug with a 16-7 win. In the end, no one could deny Na’Vi and Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev yet another LAN title. The GOAT of CS:GO also won the MVP award for his outstanding performance.
