Heroic and G2 to attend BLAST Premier World Final 2022 *
Heroic and G2 have received invitations to BLAST Premier World Final 2022. The teams secured spots in the big championship thanks to their position in BLAST's ranking, based on which a part of direct invites is handed out.
After advancing to the BLAST Premier Fall Final 2022 playoffs and OG's elimination from the event, Heroic and G2 scored enough points to take part in BLAST's final tournament of the year. Earlier, FaZe, NAVI, Vitality and Outsiders also qualified for the World Final 2022, however, not via the ranking but after victories at top-tier events throughout the year.
Two more spots remain vacant on the team list for BLAST Premier World Final 2022. One of them will be taken by a team from BLAST's ranking, where OG, Liquid and NIP are still fighting for the berth, while the second will go to the winner of BLAST Premier Fall Final 2022 or another representative of the ranking if one of the teams that have already qualified for the World Final wins the ongoing tournament.
BLAST Premier World Final 2022 will run from November 14 to 18 in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE. The prize pool of the tournament is $1 million.
The team list for BLAST Premier World Final 2022 looks as follows:
