BLAST Pro Series Madrid Fantasy recap

As the tournament was concluded on Saturday, we bring you a recap of the BLAST Pro Series Madrid Fantasy game, revealing the idea lineup and the winner of our public league.

ENCE were crowned champions of BLAST Pro Series Madrid after defeating Astralis 2-0 in the grand final of the $250,000 event, breaking the Danes' undefeated Nuke streak along the way. However, knowing the final outcome wouldn't make it easy to pick the best players for your Fantasy team.

autimatic raked in 164 points, same as ENCE's MVP Aerial

Looking at how individuals did, the first surprise is seeing Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev outside of the top five highest performing players, which combined with his very high price tag of $257,000 made him a poor pick for this event. Despite not winning in Madrid, Astralis had a number of players perform very well, with Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen being the standout, earning more points than the tournament MVP Jani "⁠Aerial⁠" Jussila.

The top 10 best performing players in the Fantasy game are available below:

1. Denmark Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen - 176 points
2. Finland Jani "⁠Aerial⁠" Jussila - 164 points
3. United States Timothy "⁠autimatic⁠" Ta - 164 points
4. Denmark Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz - 161 points
5. Denmark Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif - 136 points
6. Ukraine Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev - 130 points
7. Sweden Dennis "⁠dennis⁠" Edman - 111 points
8. Russia Denis "⁠electronic⁠" Sharipov - 94 poitns
9. Finland Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli - 83 points
10. Finland Jere "⁠sergej⁠" Salo - 83 points

In our public Money Draft league, the keys to success were having dupreeh, Aerial, and budget pick dennis - who brought in 111 points for just $184,000. The winning team, EPIC GAMERS ONLY, was finalized with autimatic and Lukas "⁠gla1ve⁠" Rossander.

1. Australia EPIC GAMERS ONLY (762)

The ideal Money Draft lineup, however, would have brought in 803 points including role bonuses, looking as folows:

Denmark Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen (Defender) 176 + 40 = 216
United States Timothy "⁠autimatic⁠" Ta (Juan Deagle) 164 + 50 = 214
Finland Jani "⁠Aerial⁠" Jussila (Leader) 164 + 47 = 211
Sweden Dennis "⁠dennis⁠" Edman (HS Machine) 111 + 29 = 140
Ukraine Danylo "⁠Zeus⁠" Teslenko (Entry Fragger) -1 + 23 = 22
Total: 803 points

The panelists of HLTV Confirmed drafted their own teams in the sixteenth episode of the show, using the Live Draft game mode, with Professeur earning his third title off the back of picking Magisk and autimatic.

You can watch the draft here, with the final rankings available below:

1. Croatia Professeur (423)
2. Denmark Producer Lukas (370)
3. Czech Republic Striker (317)
4. Australia SPUNJ (175)
5. United Kingdom BanKs (148)
