IEM Katowice Fantasy recap
With IEM Katowice concluded, we study the best performing players in Poland and reveal the cash prize winners of the 1xBet-sponsored Fantasy league.
Natus Vincere demonstrated an absolutely astonishing performance in Katowice, where the squad led by Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov dropped but four maps in seven series on their way to the tournament trophy. Naturally, this meant that three members of the roster were present in the top 10 performing players, with Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev reserving first place by a significant margin.
The top three players of the HLTV x 1xBet League had touches to their drafts, but the winning formula across the board was a combination of two players from finalist teams Natus Vincere and G2. Winner of the IEM Katowice League, DieserBear93, went for the Natus Vincere duo of s1mple and Boombl4, G2's Nemanja "huNter-" Kovač and François "AmaNEk" Delaunay, concluding the lineup with Nicolai "HUNDEN" Petersen.
