G2 Esports triumph over Team Liquid at Blast Premier World Final

The BLAST Premier World Final has finally come to an end with Rasmus “HooXi” Nielsen and his men sweeping Team Liquid 2-0 in the Grand Finals.

The Multi-national side takes home a lion’s share of $500,00 USD from the $1M USD prize pool. After a year of lackluster showings, G2 Esports seem to have risen to prominence by achieving this feat in Abu Dabhi.

The win was the organization’s first Big Event win since DreamHack Masters Malmö 2017 when they still had an all-French squad. Team Liquid looked destitute and listless in the Finals as G2 with no room for error cruised past them. After losing the opening series against FaZe, G2 defeated Outsiders in the Group A lower final, Vitality in the quarters, and FaZe again in the semis to reach the grand final.

The players under the spotlight were Justin “jks” Savage and HooXi who were believed to perform under impending scrutiny. For jks, the 27-year-old Aussie kicked off 2022 with the Intel Extreme Masters XVI – Katowice triumph under FaZe Clan to running it back with G2 at the Blast Premier.

With every challenging odd to face, HooXi made sure to leave no stone unturned when he was to steer G2 after Aleksib’s axe. By winning the tournament’s Most Valuable Player title, Ilya “m0NESY” Osipov was set as the tournament’s youngest champion. The AWPer, who is only 17 years old, finished the record competition with a rating of 1.24 across all 12 maps, which was the highest rating in the event.

Below is the data of the final standings across the Blast Premier World Final alongside the breakup of the prize money.
