BLAST Rising groups drawn

The groups have been drawn for the upcoming BLAST Rising event as the sixteen teams have been broken into four groups of four.

All sixteen teams hail from Europe given the current global situation caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. The list of teams has not yet been revealed but is scheduled to be announced on April 28th as all 16 teams will be brought in via direct invites. These teams all fall from rank 25 and beyond as the focus is on teams trying to prove themself so don’t expect to see the likes of Astralis, Liquid, Natus Vincere, and more competing in the event.

Both Movistar Riders and Heretics, which are placed in group C & D respectively have been making noise in the ongoing ESL One: Road to Rio and are certainly two teams to look out for.

The group stage will kick off on April 30th with the sixteen teams being split into four groups of four where they’ll play in a round-robin best-of-one format. The top two teams will move into the single-elimination playoffs.

If you’re interested in catching the action live, it’ll be streamed live on the BLASTtv Twitch channel here.
