The BLAST Premier Spring Showdown has officially wrapped up. With two Spring Finals spots up for grabs and 16 teams in the showdown, it was definitely a cutthroat, action-packed event. Here’s a full recap of what went down.
- G2 qualified for Blast Spring Finals after taking down Spirit in first semifinal matchup.
- Gambit qualified after beating Heroic 2-1 in second semifinal match.
- Spring Finals start June 15.
BIG, Complexity, Na’Vi, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Evil Geniuses, and FaZe Clan all made it through to the BLAST Premier Spring Finals through Groups earlier in the year.
With only two spots at the Finals left, the Spring Showdown was going to be fiercely competitive, but G2 and Gambit managed to punch their ticket there.
