Ancient replaces Train in BLAST Premier map pool

Tournament operator BLAST has announced the decision to add Ancient to its map pool of events, starting with the BLAST Premier Spring Final 2021. The new map replaces Train, which Valve removed from the Active Duty Group in early May.

The Spring Season Finals will take place between June 15 and June 20. Teams BIG, Complexity, NAVI, NIP, Evil Geniuses, FaZe, G2, and Gambit will face each other in a playoffs format for a prize pool of $425,000.

Earlier it was reported that Ancient will also participate in the championship Elisa Invitational Summer 2021 and IEM Summer 2021, which will start June 3.

Recall that Valve has changed the list of maps for tournaments on May 4. Ancient replaced Train and will not be added to the RMR map pool until after the spring series of regional championships.
