Twelve of the best CS:GO orgs in the world have battled it out to decide who goes straight to the Fall Final, and who goes to the Fall Showdown. Here’s everything you need to know about who made the cut at Blast Premier Fall Groups.


  • NAVI dominate Group C, FaZe sneaks into second.
  • NIP win Group B, BIG take second place.
  • Vitality takes top spot in Group A, Astralis finishes second.

BLAST Fall Groups could very well be one of the last CSGO events held exclusively online, as the Fall Finals are expected to take place at LAN in Copenhagen.

IEM Grand Slam winners NAVI were looking to continue their history-making run at BLAST, and they had no problem doing so, easily overcoming OG, Complexity and FaZe to take the top spot in Group C.

Astralis, Vitality, and FaZe were all looking to take s1mple and co. down a notch, and they’ve all qualified for Fall Finals following the Group bracket, which means they could each at least have a shot to do so.

BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2021 recap

We began the action in Group A, and right out of the gate it looked like Astralis would once again be a force to be reckoned with. That was until they stumbled against Vitality, who would go on to win the group instead. The Danish org still qualified for Fall Finals, but not with the coveted top seed.

In Group B it was all NIP. The Ninjas seemed to have their game together, taking down G2 and BIG to sweep the group without dropping a match. BIG managed to come in second, so they qualified for the Finals as well.

Finally, in Group C as we mentioned it was a continuation of the NAVI show. The best team in CS at the moment had no trouble against OG, FaZe, or Complexity. In fact, the real story of Group C might be the impressive showing we saw from FaZe that earned them a Finals spot as well.

Teams that failed to make the cut during this tournament will get another chance to qualify at the Fall Showdown, which starts on October 10. After that all eyes will be on the BLAST Premier Fall Finals, which get going on November 24.
