EPICENTER 2019 Fantasy recap

With EPICENTER coming to a close on Sunday, it's time to present the HLTV x 1xBet Fantasy League winners with their prizes and recap the game from the Moscow event.

2019's last Big Event saw Vitality bring home their first trophy with their current lineup since the addition of Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon, as they denied mousesports a fourth consecutive title with a 2-1 victory in the grand final.

ZywOo, ALEX, RpK, and apEX were key pieces in the best lineups

With the Fantasy game closed and analyzed, we now take a look at how the HLTV x 1xBet League went. As multiple players ended up on the same number of points, we were forced to break up ties between the top-two and top-three players with a randomizing program, which resulted in the following standings:

1. Finland enceladus22 (832) - $100
2. France GenezizFR (832) - $50
3. Austria ukto (808) - $25

The winners will be contacted via the email address connected to their HLTV accounts.

Without boosters, the ideal lineup featured a quartet from the winning side, Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut, Alex "⁠ALEX⁠" McMeekin, Cédric "⁠RpK⁠" Guipouy, and Dan "⁠apEX⁠" Madesclaire, alongside mousesports' best performer, David "⁠frozen⁠" Čerňanský, who were awarded 863 points in total with their best roles assigned:

France Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut (Main AWP): 282 + 50 = 332
Slovakia David "⁠frozen⁠" Čerňanský (Juan Deagle): 133 + 50 = 183
United Kingdom Alex "⁠ALEX⁠" McMeekin (Entry Fragger): 111 + 43 = 154
France Cédric "⁠RpK⁠" Guipouy (Leader): 62 + 50 = 112
France Dan "⁠apEX⁠" Madesclaire (Defender): 50 + 32 = 82

Outside of the aforementioned five, there were plenty of successful choices, such as mousesports' star duo Robin "⁠ropz⁠" Kool and Özgür "⁠woxic⁠" Eker and Natus Vincere's Denis "⁠electronic⁠" Sharipov and Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev. The top-ten performers in the Fantasy game were:

1. France Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut: 282 points
2. Slovakia David "⁠frozen⁠" Čerňanský: 133 points
3. United Kingdom Alex "⁠ALEX⁠" McMeekin: 111 points
4. Denmark Casper "⁠cadiaN⁠" Møller: 93 points
5. Estonia Robin "⁠ropz⁠" Kool: 91 points
6. Russia Denis "⁠electronic⁠" Sharipov: 74 points
7. Ukraine Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev: 66 points
8. France Cédric "⁠RpK⁠" Guipouy: 62 points
9. Turkey Özgür "⁠woxic⁠" Eker: 58 points
10. Russia Bogdan "⁠xsepower⁠" Chernikov: 53 points

Keep your eyes peeled on 2020's first tournaments as we will announce the next Fantasy games.

Requesting HLTV admins to change the rules of fantasy games. How come choosing 4 players from the same team be called fantasy games. You must lay down some rule, like 2/3 players only from a single team and the players distribution must be there while choosing your team (your team must have players from 3/4 different teams).
