A recap of the BLAST Pro Series: Istanbul 2018

The BLAST Pro Series: Istanbul flew by and already people will be thinking ahead to Copenhagen. However, analysing past events can help a lot when thinking ahead to the future. Which teams performed well at the most recent BLAST Pro Series? Read on to find out.

On September 29, the best teams from around the world competed at the Ülker Sports Arena in Istanbul. The tournament was split into three stages: Groups, PRO Standoff, and Grand Finals.

The Group Stage was in the best of one format (Bo1), and the Grand Finals were best of three (Bo3). The PRO Standoff was a series of 1 vs. 1’s on the BLAST Aim Map, with $20,000 up for grabs for the winner - the total prize pool for the event was $250,000.

What were the odds for BLAST Pro Series: 2018?

Astralis, the eventual tournament winners, were the outright favourites heading into the BLAST Pro Series in Istanbul (priced at 1.574) while the other finalists, MiBR, were second favourites at 4.589.

What happened in the Group Stage?

Unsurprisingly, Astralis dominated the Group Stage with a 100% record (5-0-0). MiBR’s third round win against Space Soldiers proved to be crucial as they secured a 3-1-1 record to join Astralis in the Grand Final. NiP beat Space Soldiers to third place but both teams progressed to the Pro Standoff as NiP chose to nominate the fourth placed team as their opponents.

Below is a stat breakdown from all the games from the Group Stage at BLAST Pro Series: Istanbul 2018 - this includes kills, deaths, K/D ratio, headshot, percentage headshot and objective (planting or defusing the bomb).

What happened in the Pro Standoff? 

Space Soldiers impressed in the Group Stage and they gave it their all in Pro Standoff but NiP were too strong in the 1 vs. 1 format and defeated them on all of the maps except for AK47.

What happened in the Grand Final?

Train 

Astralis started off incredibly strong against MiBR on Train, winning all but two rounds on CT’s, Dev1ce powered through MiBR with an amazing 34 kill spree, with dupreeh and gla1ve sharing second place at 18 kills each. 

During the second half MiBR tried to make a comeback by winning the pistol round but it was all in vain as Astralis still went on to win the map.

Overpass

Overpass felt like the map where it was going to be the last, Astralis, again starting out strong winning ten rounds on T’s. MiBR made a comeback when it was their turn on T’s, they managed to catch Astralis rushing to different locations in an effort to close out the series but it backfired as MiBR pushed it to game three.

Inferno

Inferno was the tipping point for the Grand Final, both teams knew the map incredibly well and it began in Astralis’ favour to begin with at the start of the first and second half. However, there was plenty of back and forth as MiBR always had chance.

Eventually, Astralis managed to snap the win away from MiBR. Astralis pushed through to the A site, planting the bomb they managed to flash through but Astralis were too on point, leaving FalleN who missed the AWP on Magisk and got taken down by device.
