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?

It's 1276 days ago, since the BLAST circuit visited Lisbon for the BLAST Pro Series Lisbon event. Here Astralis ended up winning the event after making a flawless run in the group stage, where all six teams faced each other. In the Grand Final Astralis defeated NAVI 2-1 to take home another title and a $125.000 paycheck.
