ZywOo’s chance to warm up for the m0NESY/donk showdown.

BLAST Premier Spring Finals 2024 starts Group B off with a match between Vitality and Virtus.pro. Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut’s squad may have come up short at Dallas, but they are still one of the most consistent teams. Coming into London, they have their eyes set on the trophy. Virtus.pro is the first test, but one that they must pass with flying colors.

Jame's Virtus.Pro vs apEX's Vitality, the leaders’ clash at Spring Finals

ZywOo is undoubtedly the best player on the server, but CS2 is a team game. Both teams have a solid rifle trio behind their AWPer, with Vitality taking a minor edge. Dzhami "Jame" Ali's style is legendary, but has fallen short in recent memory. So can the perennial savior be the difference maker?

Regardless, with the sheer amount of firepower in the server, this will be an early taste of all that Group B has in store for us with all the superstars in one place.

Vitality vs Virtus.Pro: BLAST Premier Spring Finals recap

Pop back in later to read the map-by-map recap of the BLAST Premier Spring Finals 2024 opener. Who will move on in the upper bracket while the other goes down to their last life?

Map Veto -

  1. Virtus.pro removed Nuke
  2. Vitality removed Ancient
  3. Virtus.pro picked Inferno
  4. Vitality picked Dust2
  5. Virtus.pro removed Vertigo
  6. Vitality removed Mirage
  7. Anubis was left over

Inferno - Vitality front run to a 13-5 win

Vitality got the perfect start shutting down back-to-back rush rounds from VP. Living up to his name, flameZ lept through a Molotov to shut down a 3rd, giving Vitality a massive start to their Spring Finals campaign. Jame’s troops nearly pulled a half-buyout but were outsmarted by APEX in a retake. With the bees up to four, VP finally brought out their guns. ZywOo was having none of it, spoiling VP’s fans with a wall bang kill, and he followed it up with two more to take 5 rounds.

In the blink of an eye, Vitality was pushing 8 rounds in the half. Virtus.Pro could muster no defense despite using all of coach Xoma’s timeouts. An opening kill onto ZywOo finally spelled success for VP. That propelled them up to four rounds despite electronic disconnecting in the final round.

After a very lengthy tech pause, VP nearly pulled off a miracle win thanks to Fame’s triple, but Vitality took the second pistol to win. Another tech pause followed, and the bees found themselves in double digits with a B pop. Despite their statements claiming the team isn’t following Jame’s style, VP had a failed save up against 11. Jame managed to delay the inevitable with a solid AWP round on A. Vitality found themselves in a 2v3 on B, but they closed out the map with apEX and ZywOo alive.
