NAVI win BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021
The BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021 was the final chance to get points ahead of December’s World Final. With four spots up for grabs, and seven teams still in the running, the Fall Final results determined who will make it to the LAN.
- NAVI loses Nuke streak but wins Grand Final 2-1 over Vitality
- Vitality take down Astralis on Nov. 28, and take on NAVI in Finals
- World Final slots finalized with Vitality, Liquid, and Astralis locked in
NAVI added to their already impressive 2021 with a win at the BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021. NAVI sent Vitality to the lower bracket finals before facing them again in the Grand Final, where they actually dropped Nuke, the first time in over 20 matches played on the map.
However, with the deciding match coming down to Inferno, s1mple and NAVI circled the wagons to pull off yet another championship run.
While they dominated the competition, it was still one last chance for other teams to earn crucial points and make it to the World Final LAN in December. Those teams were Vitality, Team Liquid, and Astralis.
