BLAST Pro Series Moscow Fantasy recap
With the event concluding, we take a look at the best performing players and teams at BLAST Pro Series Moscow and announce the HLTV x Endgame League prize winners.
The event in Moscow, coming in shortly after the StarLadder Major Berlin, featured many teams that recently underwent or are soon about to undergo a roster change. Making most of that opportunity were AVANGAR and forZe, two teams that were supposed to fight for one spot at the event through the CIS play-in.
Vitality's withdrawal allowed both teams to participate, with Dzhami "Jame" Ali's and Andrey "Jerry" Mekhryakov's squad making the most of that opportunity and getting into the grand final. There, AVANGAR beat their regional rivals 2-1, with Jame taking the MVP title for his impressive performance.
In the HLTV x Endgame league, users that selected players from the CIS sides did the best, with NiP's players proving a great addition. The winner of the league, "witti534", had two AVANGAR players, two forZe players, and Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson, earning a total of 763 points. Interestingly, the third-placed users "melkiy_", had an easy time selecting his team and went for the full lineup of forZe.
The final standings and prize winnings for HLTV x Endgame league are as follows:
Winners will be contacted with additional information via an HLTV private message.
The ideal team did significantly better than the winning one, though, as combining the three in-game leaders Jame, Jerry and Lekr0 with Jenya "FL1T" Lebedev and Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg provided 860 points if the ideal roles were selected, not including boosts.
Aside from the aforementioned players, Timur "buster" Tulepov also had a great showing, but didn't make the cut for the ideal lineup due to his higher price ($216,000, 174 points). Similar to him was Fernando "fer" Alvarenga ($211,000, 113 points), while Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo made top 10 despite giving up the main AWP role to Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe.
1. Dzhami "Jame" Ali: 219 points
2. Timur "buster" Tulepov: 174 points
3. Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson: 150 points
