The competing teams will share a prize pool of $425,000, but it’s not only about money. As it was mentioned earlier, a seed to Global Finals is indeed the prize the best CS: GO teams want to achieve. Once again, the two teams from Showdown will join BiG, Complexity, Na’Vi, NiP, EG, and FaZe to fight for a single seed slot.

Fall 2021 Finals (November 23th – November 28th) will feature a $425,000 prize pool and eight pro teams competing for a seed to Global Finals.
Struggle to Win: Top Teams
Except for the two seeds from Spring and Fall finals, six teams will be drafted from other tournaments, such as ESL, Flashpoint, PGL, and even a Global Leaderboard. That means that 2021 won’t see four invites that could be given based on CS:GO Blast Premier 2021 standings. 2021 as a year would be fascinating for CS fans because of the possibilities of returning to LAN tournaments.
Although online tournaments, including the BLAST 2020 Global Final, were impressive, the LAN experience is something that players and fans are waiting for. Let’s take a look at what teams have decent odds of triumphing at the BLAST 2021 Global Final, as follows.
After a stunning triumph at IEM Katowice 2021 against VP in a grand final, Gambit looks insanely strong. This CIS team looked perfect, showing both great individual skill and flawless team cooperation. The IEM Katowice 2021 winner will have to show their best throughout the year to make it to BLAST Global Final 2021.
G2 Esports made some other bold moves after adding NiKo to their roster. G2 removed kennyS, which was controversially perceived by the CS community. Although their recent performance is still backpedaling, NiKo and huNter’s combo will surely surprise competitors during the Spring Showdown.
Team Liquid, also undergoing squad changes, is a CSGO team that seemed to benefit from FalleN’s arrival. During the IEM Katowice 2021, they showed incredible performance, surprising the top teams. Although they finished in the semifinal, Liquid rebuilt their roster and benefited from FalleN’s leadership skills.
Virtus. Pro is one of those professional teams with a team roster worth your attention. After a solid second-place finish at IEM Katowice 2021, they have chances to make the most of their star roster. Although their players are relative newcomers to the professional CS scene, they will surprise fans in the upcoming events leading to the BLAST 2021 Global Final.
ZywOo, probably the best CS:GO player globally, is ready to bring Vitality back to the top. During the recent IEM Katowice 2021, they failed to deliver a solid standings, alongside losing during the Spring Groups. Their recent performance in the tourney brackets was unfortunate, but Vitality is still among the best teams in the world. French fans will surely tune in to live streaming broadcasts to cheer for ZywOo, Apex, and the company.
