The Counter-Striek:Global Offensive stop of the BLAST Pro Series 2019 in Watsco Center, Miami, California, United States of America has ended last night late in the day for the European spectators.
The final game saw a surprising pair as
Team Liquid took on the guys from FaZe Clan.
The surprise came as the favorite, Team Astralis ended up on just the 5'th place out of six, this was due to a horrible second day that kicked off with a near miss against Team Liquid de_overpass (14:16) then a stomp from Made In Brazil de_overpass (2:16), continued with a final loss against the eventual winners de_dust2 (5:16).
This streak sparked some rummours that the brand RFRSH, the majority shareholder of Team Astralis and the BLAST Pro Series had something to do about this.
In the end it came to Made In Brazil taking on Cloud9 for the showmatch, a series of five 1v1's with pre established guns, with the Brazilian side taking additional $20000 in cash prize for their Standoff Showmatch win and FaZe Clan dispatching from Team Liquid with an easy [2-0] win on de_mirage (16:6) and de_dust2 (16:12) to take home the first prize of $1250000 and 10 Points.
