What is the Structure of the BLAST Premier: World Final 2022?
The 8 teams will be split into two groups, A and B each containing 4 teams. Every team will play all the teams in their group once in a best-of-3 series. The top 3 teams will then progress to the playoffs.
The best team from each group will get a bye in the quarterfinals and automatically progress to the semi-final, and the group from the Group A which will take second place will compete with the 3rd placed team in Group B in the quarterfinal match. The winners will then progress to the semifinals and take on the top seeds.
The winners of the semi-finals will then meet in a grand final which will also be a best of 3 series. The winner will walk away with $500,000 while the second place will take home $250,000.
What Team Will Win the BLAST Premier: World Final 2022?
There are 3 clear favorites going into this elite tournament, they are Heroic, FaZe Clan and Outsiders. All of these teams are in red-hot form and have the talent on their roster to beat any CS:GO squad in the world.
FaZe Clan is the early betting favorite thanks to their incredible run in 2022. They have over $2 million in 2022 alone and won S-Tier tournaments including the PGL Major and the Intel Extreme Masters XVII. However, they recently lost to Heroic in the BLAST Premier: Fall Finals 2022 and had a poor performance at the IEM Rio Major 2022. FaZe Clan is beatable!
If FaZe Clan doesn’t win the tournament then the next biggest favorite is Outsiders. They are coming off an epic win at the IEM Rio Major 2022 where they beat Heroic, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and Team Spirit. However, don’t write off Heroic, they also scored a big recent tournament win and are the last team to defeat FaZe Clan!
