Dive Into the Stats: blameF's Brought His A-game to the Decider
  • Date: January 23, 2024
  • Tournament: BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2024
  • Format: Best-of-three (BO3)
  • Stage: Upper Bracket Final in Group A
  • Opponent: Vitality (European roster)
  • Result: A 2-1 win (13-10 on Mirage, 6-13 on Vertigo and 13-4 on Overpass)

With a remarkable performance in the Upper Bracket Final in Group A, the main team defeated Vitality in an intense 2-1 series. Finally, the European super-roster's nine-match winning streak was broken—thanks to a powerful effort from Benjamin 'blameF' Bremer and his squad.

Despite falling behind with a 6-2 deficit on the T side of Mirage, blameF and his teammates mounted a remarkable comeback on the CT side in the 2nd half, securing a 13-10 victory.

Martin 'stavn' Lund seemed unstoppable throughout the match, especially on Mirage. The 21-year-old rifler indeed started as a true game-changer. As an in-game leader, blameF stood out significantly, making the right calls and demonstrating his worth in the stats. He topped the charts with the most kills (20), the most damage dealt (121.0), and the best rating (1.75). On Overpass, the decider map, his leadership was noticeable as the Danish roster won dominantly with a score of 13-4.

Let's take a look at the impressive statistics, shall we?

A masterclass performance on Overpass

No one can argue against the fact that blameF is a sharpshooter with a pixel-perfect aim— and that his momentary ranking as world no. 1 on FACEIT is an excellent example of this. Against superstar AWPer Mathieu 'ZywOo' Herbaut and his Vitality crew, the Danish captain showed his leadership skills, making the right decisions and calls in offensive and defensive plays. On Overpass, the European opponents were overpowered in a way few have done in this brand-new Counter-Strike (CS2) era.

The 26-year-old IGL topped the leaderboard of the decider map, indicating that he has been adjusting well to leadership responsibilities without having a lesser impact on the stats.

  • Kills (headshots): 20 (13)
  • Ration 2.0: 1.75
  • Assists: 5
  • KAST: 82.4%
  • Kills deaths difference: +11
  • ADR: 121.0
  • First kills difference: +1
  • Deaths: 9
  • DPR (Deaths Per Round): 0.53
  • KPR (Kills Per Round): 1.18

Dan 'apEX' Madesclaire was seen attempting to tease 'blameF' throughout the combats on the server, shouting at the Danish IGL. However, these efforts had little impact. 

  • On Overpass, 'blameF' gained the upper hand, killing 'apEX' five times in total, while 'apEX' only managed to kill the Dane once. 

So, what's next?

  • The Danish roster plays the Group A Final on Saturday, January 27, at 12:00 CET for a spot in the BLAST Spring Finals 2024.
