The stats reveal how the players and teams performed, and provide insights into who viewers bet on the most.

The final stage of the BLAST Premier Spring Final 2024 Counter-Strike 2 tournament took place from 12 to 16 June. Over 18,000 spectators gathered at the OVO Arena Wembley in London for the tournament playoffs. It was the first time the UK had hosted a Counter-Strike event on such a scale for six years.

Esports Charts analyzed the event and published a series of reports with reviews of the teams’ and individual players’ greatest achievements in the tournament. Before it started, the analytics service published a retrospective review of the viewership of BLAST Premier Spring tournaments over previous years, statistics on the popularity of different team members among Twitch stream audiences, and exclusive data on which teams GG.BET users bet on to win in the tournament.

After the tournament ended, Esports Charts shared its results. The collection of infographics included data on teams’ performances, such as the most spectacular comebacks and wins in rounds with the lowest budget for purchases. They also show betting statistics, such as which teams’ wins produced the most winnings. The final set of information shows how players performed and contains exclusive betting data on individual performances like total deaths and total kills.

GG.BET press office:
