BLAST returns to Lisbon after 1276 days

So much has changed since the last time BLAST visited the Portuguese capital city.

It was peak Astralis time with the Danes destroying all opposition left and right. Christopher 'GeT_RiGhT' Alesund was still playing for NIP, while MIBR fielded more Americans than Cloud9! Do you remember December 2018?
