September 26, 2023
  • Tournament: ESL Pro League Season 18 (LAN)
  • Format: Group Stages - Double Elimination Bracket (Best of three)
Notable Stats for blameF:
  • 32 Open Kills
  • 80% Opening Duel Success
  • 0.16 Opening Kills Per Round
  • A 1.46 rating over 8 maps

With a impressive rating of 1.46 over eight maps, blameF ranks as the second-best player in the group stage.

As the ESL Pro League Season 18 playoffs in Malta approach, it's worth noting the main team's new in-game leader, Benjamin "blameF" Bremer, has distinguished himself as one of the standout players over the past four weeks.

Per the latest update on social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter), the team captain secured the second-highest rating among all participants. Only Lotan "Spinx" Gilati from Vitality surpassed him with a 1.49 rating in six maps.

Given his impressive performance, a salute to the captain is well-deserved.

Reflecting their earlier success at IEM Cologne, the Danes clinched a playoff spot. Despite an initial loss to Ninjas in Pyjamas, blameF and the team rallied with three back-to-back 2-0 victories, ensuring their position in the playoffs.

blameF: I put in a lot of grind daily with 1,000 kills in Deathmatch

- The fact that we managed to qualify for the playoffs of a significant LAN tournament as a team once again is fantastic. Usually, I don't measure my worth by my individual performance. First and foremost, I assess the performance of my teammates and myself based on how we perform as a team. And this will always be my approach as captain and in-game leader, blameF says.

- I am proud of that, which means the most to me, although I am also happy that I played well. Yes, I had a good tournament. But I also feel that I put in a lot of grind daily with 1,000 kills in Deathmatch. Some days, it might have been only 700-800 kills. But overall, I invested a lot of effort in individual training both leading up to and during the group stage in Malta.

First and foremost, I assess the performance of my teammates and myself based on how we perform as a team, states blameF.
