Last year we saw the first instalment of the Blast Pro Series CS:GO competition take place in Copenhagen, Denmark, where six teams played at once on the same stage as part of a one-day event that culminated in SK Gaming winning the title, and now we've had the second event in Istanbul.
A lot of the former SK Gaming talent appeared in MIBR's roster as they took on Astralis for the title, and while Astralis couldn't manage to lift the trophy last year, this time they made it count by defeating MIBR in the final round to emerge victorious. In fact, they ended the event with an unbeaten record, charting five wins, while MIBR sat behind them with three wins, one draw, and one loss.
This is Astralis' second big win in a matter of weeks, as they traveled straight from the Faceit Major in London to this event, and proved why they're considered the best team in the world right now. Who can stop them?
