The Danish organisation BLAST has been organising CS:GO tournaments for several years. Although it recently made a name for itself with its abortive partnership with the futuristic Saudi city NEOM, it hopes to make a bigger splash by organising the last European stage of the Valorant Ignition Series. It will be played in a small committee, as there are only four participating teams.
- Dates: September 11-13
- Participants: Four teams
- Format: Double bracket final phase
- Prize Pool: €50,000
List of participants
The team took it all in its Valorant ignition Series. While it has won all the competitions in which it has been involved so far, it showed some signs of weakness in the Allied Esports Odyssey where it lost its first match. The competition is getting closer but the team remains the clear favorite for the tournament.
Team Liquid has only officially launched in Valorant a month ago. Players have already developed automatisms, as they used to play together at fish123. The team includes CS:GO legend Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom. After having missed his last tournament, the team will be keen to make up for it.
A very strong team that can count on its captain Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow to lead the charge. It was they who inflicted the first defeat in G2 Esports' history. While the roster has won a minor online tournament recently, it now hopes to claim a major title.
Ninjas in Pyjama

Cypher is an essential member of a professional team's lineup in Valorant. His domination of the competitive landscape dates back to the very start of the meta, and several patches later, his pick rate shows no sign of slowing down.
