Mousesports and Dignitas will face each other in the BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 European Showdown tournament. The BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 European Showdown tournament is an online European CS:GO tournament featuring some of the best CS:GO teams in action. It has a $182,500 prize pool and the top three teams qualify to the BLAST Premier: European Finals tournament.
Mousepsorts has had relatively inconsistent performances in recent weeks. The international roster lost its matches against MAD Lions, BIG and Complexity. But they also won their most recent match against OG and Copenhagen Flames before that. With a relatively young and accomplished roster, Mousesports has the potential to easily break into the three. The team is ranked 4th recently but their inconsistent form online has raised questions over the team’s chances at this tournament. Led by Karrigan, Mousesports has the advantage in the tactical side of the game. Karrigan’s performance in the past might not have been the best, but he has been able to lead Tier 2 teams to the top. However, Karrigan excels in enabling his teammates and so far, and Mousesports looks set on the right path.
Team Dignitas features the former NiP CS:GO roster. All five members on this team are veterans and they have a huge fan-following. However, their current form is nowhere near their peak, which was during the early years of CS:GO. Team Dignitas relies on the performance of the youngster Hallzerk. He has been consistent in his performances, but Dignitas can produce good results only when F0rest and Get_RiGhT also step up to the occasion. Unfortunately for their fans, the players have been woefully inconsistent with their form. The Dignitas roster has slipped through the rankings and has now fallen off their peak levels. Team Dignitas stands little chance to defeat Mousesports.
