Blast har introdusert Blast Premier, en global turnering som kjører i best-av-tre-format. Dessuten er det en PlayIn-system, som gir alle lag mulighet for å kvalifisere seg til en Global Final og to sesongfinaler, hvor de sistnevnte gir hele $500.000 til vinneren. Global Final-vinneren stikker dog hjem med $1 million.
"The next evolution of our tournament series is going to blow people away. We have spent months developing the right format. A format that will create the greatest entertainment product for fans at events and viewers watching across the world. We believe we have perfected that format. We will finish the year with a surge of excitement as we crown the 2019 BLAST Pro Series Champion. And we look forward to creating something incredible in esports with Blast Premier in 2020," sier Blast CEO Robbie Douek.
"Developing our 2020 format and experience has been one of the most exciting tasks since I joined the company. We've taken onboard the incredible feedback from our show surveys and across the Counter-Strike community. It's only been 12 months since we were in Istanbul, our second ever event, and here we are, almost a full trip around the world later and a lot wiser. The culmination of everything we've done so far is Blast Premier - a competitive Best of 3 format, where anyone can win the Global Final - enhanced by great storytelling and a fan focused experience," tilføyer Nicolas Estrup, som er direktør for Product & Experience.
