Team Spirit win Blast Premier Spring Final 2024

Russian esports organisation Team Spirit won the Blast Premier Spring Final 2024 in London today.

They defeated Navi 3-1 in the grand final thanks to some solid teamwork, plays and communication.

Team Spirit started off dominant in the first two games, but Navi did fight back on both occasions, with Spirit winning the first two maps 13-9 (on Ancient and Dust 2).

Then, on map three (Mirage), it was Navi’s turn to start off on top. They went 8-0 ahead, before Spirit swung back in after a break, with Navi eventually winning the game 13-4.

But Spirit’s roster of Russian players chopper, magixx, donk, sh1ro and Ukrainian zont1x were too much for Navi (consisting of Ukrainians b1t and w0nderful, plus Finnish player Aleksib, Lithuanian player jL and Romanian iM). They won 3-1 overall.

magixx told host James Banks after the win:

“It feels great, because the results has not been decided by the lag, but how we played. I’m happy. Every crowd I’ve faced was against me, so I’m used to it. It’s not an issue, we’re used to it and we can play well.”
