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.
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. Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen - 176 points
2. Jani "Aerial" Jussila - 164 points
3. Timothy "autimatic" Ta - 164 points
4. Nicolai "device" Reedtz - 161 points
5. Emil "Magisk" Reif - 136 points
6. Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev - 130 points
7. Dennis "dennis" Edman - 111 points
8. Denis "electronic" Sharipov - 94 poitns
9. Aleksi "allu" Jalli - 83 points
10. 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. EPIC GAMERS ONLY (762)
The ideal Money Draft lineup, however, would have brought in 803 points including role bonuses, looking as folows:
Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen (Defender) 176 + 40 = 216
Timothy "autimatic" Ta (Juan Deagle) 164 + 50 = 214
Jani "Aerial" Jussila (Leader) 164 + 47 = 211
Dennis "dennis" Edman (HS Machine) 111 + 29 = 140
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.
