Viewers can influence Showmatch
BLAST is known for its connection to the fans and it isn't the first time viewers using the tournament organizer's website to watch a competition can affect how the game goes.
This time, fans have already decided which map is going to be played. In a poll to ban the final map, BLAST.tv users were split between Nuke and Inferno, with both maps receiving 50% of the votes, but Inferno was banned, ultimately.
Do you know The Hunger Games? This is just like it. Fans won't be able to outright kill a player, but in turn, will be able to choose special rounds with very particular features.
Viewers will be able to choose from a list of 10 special rounds that consist of a decreased bomb timer, a real-life smoke being "thrown" to prevent players from seeing their monitors properly, a low-gravity setting, a slow-motion and hyper speed mode, infinite grenades, playing with the inverted mouse setting on, weapons with double their normal fire rate, no recoil on the weapons, and even a round with the monitors turned off.
The Showmatch starts at 09:00AM and it will be a head-to-head between Team France and BLAST Dream Team.
