The opening round of BLAST Fall Finals in Copenhagen has been announced. Two matchups have caught the attention with Cloud9's match against NAVI as the most prominent.
Three former Natus Vincere players will be on the server with Cloud9. Denis "electroNic" Sharipov and Ilya "Perfecto" Zalutskiy joined the roster this summer from NAVI, while Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhaylov is the latest addition to the squad after the departure of Dmitriy "sh1ro" Sokolov. All three were part of the 2021 Major winning lineup for NAVI.
In the other group, Team Vitality will face Heroic, who has Peter “dupreeh” Rasmussen on the server. The 30-year-old Dane was kicked from the active roster of Vitality a month after having won the BLAST.tv Paris Major earlier this year. Now dupreeh is set to face his old teammates in the opening round in Group B, where Astralis and Complexity are also in the mix.
