The BLAST Premier Fall Final 2020 CSGO tournament has come to a close with Team Vitality taking down Astralis in the Grand Final to become champions.
Vitality took the lead in the tournament’s final series with a commanding 16-4 win on Vertigo but Astralis, being the juggernaut that they are, wouldn’t go down without a fight, tying things up with a tight 16-14 victory on Dust2.
The Grand Final, itself alone worth RM568,000 ($140,000), went down to a winner-take-all third game on Inferno, which the French side dominated 16-5 to clinch the championship.
Vitality finished the tournament with RM912,000 ($225,000) in their back pockets and a guaranteed spot in the upcoming BLAST Global Finals. Astralis earned RM345,000 ($85,000) for their second-place effort while BIG took home RM162,000 ($40,000) after finishing in third place.
