Fantasy game for Flashpoint 3 goes live
The Regional Major Ranking (RMR) event for Europe will be one of the longest Fantasy games yet.
Flashpoint 3 is set to go live on May 10 with the first round of the 16-team double-elimination bracket. The tournament will span 20 days and have the likes of Heroic, Astralis, G2, and Complexity competing for RMR points which will decide the team list for the PGL Stockholm Major in October.
As Flashpoint 3 is a long tournament that includes upper and lower brackets, as well as a number of placement decider matches, the initial matchups shouldn't make a big impact on player selection. Instead, Fantasy players are likely to focus on team form and price when deciding on their teams.
Heroic players stand out in terms of recent performances, but finding great budget picks will be no easy task considering the lack of stability among the top squads. Nemanja "huNter-" Kovač at $208,000 and Lucas "Bubzkji" Andersen at $194,000 could be popular picks, with the playoffs of DreamHack Masters Spring set to provide more insight into player and team form.
