The quarterfinals were played yesterday, following the end of the group stage of BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022. Today is the day of the semifinals and after watching the quarterfinals yesterday, we did not encounter many surprises.
Today we will take a look at the results of the quarterfinals and the matches to be played in the semifinals.
What happened in the quarterfinals of BLAST Premier: Fall Groups 2022?
The quarterfinals of BLAST Premier: Fall Groups 2022 went as one would expect. There were no surprises in the matches.
- OG 2 - 0 Complexity Gaming
Complexity became one of the most talked about teams of the tournament, especially with its win against NAVI, but based on their overall roster quality, they were expected to be one of the Fall Showdown passengers, not one of the teams that will participate in the Fall Finals. With their 2-0 defeat against OG, this became certain.
- G2 Esports 2 - 0 BIG
This was perhaps the most interesting match in the quarterfinals. In a match that was expected to be competitive, BIG did not even secure a double-digit round on any map, let alone winning a map. However, it must be said that the gauntlet BIG was in is a difficult one.
- Evil Geniuses 1 - 2 Ninjas in Pyjamas
Ninjas in Pyjamas was already expected to win the match. Evil Geniuses actually performed better than expected against Ninjas in Pyjamas with them winning a map and coming close to winning on Inferno as well. However, this performance did not save them from the fourth place of the gauntlet.
Which teams do you think will continue their way from the Fall Finals and which teams from the Fall Showdown?

BLAST Premier: Fall Groups 2022 semifinals schedule and predictions
- FaZe Clan - OG (August 26 - 13:00 CEST)
Although FaZe Clan was second in their group, they are still one of the two strongest teams of the tournament along with NAVI. I don't think they will have a hard time getting the win against OG.
- Team Liquid - Ninjas in Pyjamas (August 26 - 16:30 CEST)
My biggest advice to you for this match would be that you should not miss it. We will probably watch a great Bo3. My favourite is Team Liquid by a narrow margin.
- Team Vitality - G2 Esports (August 26 - 20:00 CEST)
This match is sure to be competitive as well. However, it does feel like G2 Esports is slowly drifting away from its former glory, right? I think Team Vitality, which maintains its performance in terms of stability, will win this match.
What can happen in the finals if our predictions come true?
If our predictions are correct, the first match of the finals will be between Astralis and FaZe Clan. It might be a very competitive match but FaZe Clan would win it in our opinion.
Should Team Liquid face Heroic in the finals, it would be a match that will wow the audience. My favourite would be Team Liquid.
