BLAST World Finals will be the first glimpse of how the Tier 1 teams will handle the addition of Anubis to the map pool.
For some teams such as Heroic, it will be easy to just start banning the map from the get-go as the Danes had Dust2 as their permanent ban. But for others like NAVI and Outsiders, Anubis will have to be part of their map pool to keep them from playing Vertigo and Nuke respectively.
Outsiders could be a team, who could try and take on the new map from the start. From his Telegram channel, in-game leader Dzhami "Jame" Ali has commented on the new map, and it seems like the Russian AWP'er is a fan!
"I became an Anubis master, after the BLAST I will write you a guide. I really enjoy what you can do on it - this is not primitive Vertigo and unfinished Ancient, but not without bugs, of course."
Jame and the rest of Outsiders will face Team Liquid in the first round of BLAST World Finals.
