BLAST Pro Series visit the Spanish capital on May 10 and 11. The competition is all set to take place at Madrid Arena. It will host some of the best teams in the competitive world of CS: GO. So it is only understandable to give you five names that will surely make their mark in the battle of the stars!
Nicolai ‘device’ Reedtz – Astralis
The Danish star is one of the best players in the world. He is intelligent, versatile and capable of solving the most complicated situations. The AWPer of Astralis is one of the veterans of the game who has continued to improve his style of play. He was rated as the 2nd best player of 2018 after winning over ten competitive titles with Astralis.
Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev – Natus Vincere
S1mple is the best player in the world not only in the official world ranking but for the vast majority of CS: GO fans. The Ukrainian holds an exceptional mind to understand the ins and outs of each round and stay one step ahead of their rivals. NaVi would not be the same if s1mple decided to find a new team. Some rate s1mple as the best player in the competitive history of CS:GO. Yet we believe that the player still needs to prove that he is capable of winning Major titles.
Patrik ‘f0rest’ Lindberg – Ninjas in Pyjamas
A true legend of Counter-Strike that has never stopped to give a hard time to his opponents. He is still one of the best and Ninjas in Pyjamas will need his experience and expertise to give their best in Madrid. F0rest is one of the few active players that have enjoyed success in playing CS: 1.6 and CS: GO. We really hope that he continues to give brilliant performances in the future years.
Aleksi ‘allu’ Jalli – ENCE
We could say EZ4ENCE and leave it here. They arrive in an exceptional form, with a runner-up position in the Major of Katowice. The Finnish side is led by allu who has proven that he is capable of carrying a team on his back and returning to the top. He enforces an interesting strategy where any player can play any role in any round. This unpredictable style of play is what makes allu and ENCE such an interesting opponent. Na’Vi will be eager to face the side after getting by the Finns in the semifinals of the Katowice Major.
Timothy ‘autimatic’ Ta – Cloud9
Cloud9 is not in the best of forms at the moment. Since two of its star players, KioShima and Flusha decided to part ways from the organization. The North American team will try to prove that it is still capable of competing at the highest level. Cloud9 will need the firepower and brilliance of Autimatic to aspire to get the team to the grand finale of the BLAST Pro Series Madrid.
