Get ready for the perhaps most crazy day in competitive Counter-Strike ever!

It's deadline day for the 12 BLAST partner teams to submit rosters for the upcoming Fall Groups.

Rumors of roster changes have been at an all-time high this summer with Team Vitality, NAVI, Team Liquid, Astralis, OG, and Evil Geniuses at the center of most speculations.

Today all six teams are set to submit their rosters for the upcoming LAN event in Copenhagen, BLAST Premier Fall Groups. The deadline is tonight at 19.00 (CEST). If the teams submit another roster later than this deadline they will lose their seeding in the tournament.

What can we expect today?

Team Vitality:



Denis "electroNic" Sharipov, Ilya "Perfecto" Zalutskiy, and Andrii “npl” Kukharskyi are all set to depart NAVI according to rumors. Mihai "⁠iM⁠" Ivan, Aleksi "⁠Aleksib⁠" Virolainen, and Apeks' Justinas "jL" Lekavicius have been rumored to be the replacements.

Team Liquid:

Evil Geniuses:

Like Team Liquid, EG is supposedly also looking to field a European lineup for the next season. Audric "JACKZ" Jug and Denis "electroNic" Sharipov have been rumored to join the NA organization, while Aleksandr "zorte" Zagodyrenko and Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski also could be on their way to represent Evil Geniuses.


OG has already announced that Abdul "⁠degster⁠" Gasanov and Adam "⁠NEOFRAG⁠" Zouhar is being transfer-listed. So who will replace them? Iulian "regali" Harjău is rumored to be the new AWP'er, while Nemanja "nexa" Isaković is set to return as the in-game leader.
