Today we are proud to unveil a brand new feature here on HLTV.org. A feature that has been longer in the making than most of you have been playing CS for. Back when HLTV.org was but a small site Martin's biggest dream was always the Dreamteam game. He was shot down time and time again due to missing stats, time and admins, but times have changed, and today we are happy to launch Dreamteam!
Dreamteam is a manager/fantasy game, it works like many other fantasy games out there. That means it runs on leagues, the first league we will be running it on is EPS Nordic Season II. The point of the game is to put together the best team, this is done by buying the gamers of the different teams in the league. These gamers then rise and fall in value depending on their real world performance in the league.
The goal is then to have the most valuable team at the end of the season. This can only be done by checking out the players, the matchups, and assigning roles for players that add bonuses to their performance. The better you know the teams and the players, the better you will most likely do.
There is a catch however, the game is not actually finished, but the buying and managing parts are, meaning you can set up your team now while we work frantically to get the rest done for tomorrow afternoon when EPS Nordic starts. This also means exact values for bonuses and such have not been set yet, so you will have to be a little in the dark for the first round of roles.
The admins have already been setting up teams, and you can check out yours truly's right here. There will be full support for private leagues where you compete against just your friends, and of course also a global toplist putting everyone up against each other.
For now however, go create your team and read the introduction, then you will be ready for tomorrows EPS Nordic matches. We will post more updates on the Dreamteam game as we add much needed features, this will be done during the week, so stay tuned, and have fun, we know we will!
edit : Oh I found :D

Any ideas how you want to give the bonus/points to the players. Who are judging and how? Is it frags only?
Need to add asian teams etc. It will be cool :)

I had never thought about something like this for e-Sports though... this is pure genius haha!
I only hope things don't get too messed up because of the whole team-hopping thing we have in CS. Starting a team in a league just to see your player leave the league by getting kicked should be pretty bad :(.
Waiting for their first match and then basing it on the stats of that match or...?
I mean if I bought thundR and I choose him as newbie then I'll get more points if I will choose someone better and this better guys will have k/d X>1 ?

More specific numbers on everything will be released tomorrow..
- ave ( igl )
- f0rest ( aimstar )
- face ( sprayer )
- FYRR73 ( awp )
- BERRY ( first fragger )
FaagaN (First fragger)
Jumpy (tac leader)
trace (first fragger)
my team > all
no chance, sry :)
... was thinking about Delpan - GuX - dRiim - pronax - Jumpy ... put I like real and face 2 much :)
cArn (Tac Leader)
fucking $55 short of being able to have allen as my sprayer instead of FYRR73. So hard to handle the economics of getting the team you want without getting one of the cheapest players and making his role newbie.
Hope i win. :P
BERRY (first fragger)
and ofcourse me as a manager lol

if only i could add Sunde, too bad not enough money lol...
ave [tac leader]
pekky [first fragger]
So well, yeah.. Dont know if I made myself understood, but I tried :p
Furthermore I love this idea so damn much! Been playing similar games for the Norwegian footballscene for some time, so this is awesome! Starting to feel an adiction coming already ;)
Oh, and a last question(sorry for being such a whiner..) is there possible to make a link on all of the playernames when you are in the transfer area? so that you might check their stats directly when checking out players - instead of going the whole way around into the stat system to check every player, so it's easier to see whos the better awper, rifler etc, and also k/d ratios! In other words a directlink to the statsection on the players.
Where can i find other teams? mousesports, alternate, Seven, Team XLBet ?
ave - tac leader
FYRR73 - sniper
GeT_RiGhT - aimstar
Gux - first fragger
Zoop - hacker

Moreover, are we supposed to keep some cash in the bank for further use??? Do we get interest on the money kept in bank? :D
