While IEM Dallas was filled with stand-ins and replacement teams the BLAST event in Lisbon has avoided any big cancellations from the participating players and teams. Until now.
OG's Polish AWP'er Mateusz "mantuu" Wilczewski will watch the event from home, while Abdulkhalik "degster" Gasanov did not have to spend a lot of time on the bench at Spirit before being called to action again. On Saturday the Russian Sniper was benched after disagreements with Spirit.
OG and degster will face NAVI in the first round of BLAST Premier Spring Finals in Lisbon on Wednesday.
Remember to follow the event closely here on Pley.gg, where we have travelled down to Portugal to cover the event.
