BLAST Pro Series Miami fantasy recap
The action in Miami finished, and with that, we bring you a look at the best performing players in the Fantasy game and users' teams that did the best in the HLTV Fantasy League by BUFF.bet.
A surprising title win for FaZe and considering that, an expected MVP award for Nikola "NiKo" Kovač brought BLAST Pro Series Miami to a close on Saturday, and with that, ended the short-but-sweet fantasy game.
With Astralis's flop, users stacking on the ever-consistent Danes were left disappointed, as only Emil "Magisk" Reif finished the tournament with a positive amount of points, 90, but even that wasn't worth it for his high price tag of $228,000.
The key to victory wasn't combining Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev and Denis "electronic" Sharipov either, which was crucial at StarSeries, but having NiKo and the undervalued Keith "NAF" Markovic, who brought in 179 pre-bonus for just $192,000.
The two highest scoring users had the same team, going for two big-hitters NiKo and s1mple, and finishing the team with budget picks that ended up doing very well, NAF, Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer, and João "felps" Vasconcellos.
Since the two users are tied for points, the winner of the Flip Knife | Doppler (Minimal Wear) will be decided by a random draw, which will be done tonight live on Twitch, during the HLTV Confirmed show featuring Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill, Milan "Striker" Švejda, and Zvonimir "Professeur" Burazin which starts at 20:00 .
In the HLTV Confirmed Fantasy live draft league, Professeur claimed another title, outclassing the rest of the panel with 763 points, earning a #30 global placement as well, with a lineup of Nicolai "device" Reedtz, NiKo, NAF, Fernando "fer" Alvarenga, and Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo.
