Fantasy: IEM Winter game open for action

The LAN tournament will feature one Fantasy game for both the group stage and playoffs.

The $250,000 event, set to take place in a studio at a yet undisclosed location, is scheduled for December 2-12. The group stage and quarter-finals will take place over the initial four days, followed by a prolonged break and the semi-finals and finals happening the next weekend. With that in mind, the Fantasy game won't be split as usual, instead encompassing both the groups and the playoffs.

kennyS could be one of the most popular picks

Users should have that in mind when selecting their team, as picking players that will make a deep run will be crucial to placing high. G2 "stand-in AWPer" Kenny "⁠kennyS⁠" Schrub ($190,000) will draw a lot of attention, as will Gambit's Timofey "⁠interz⁠" Yakushin ($180,000) who consistently delivers points when paired with the Support role, despite a low price tag.

Kristian "⁠k0nfig⁠" Wienecke's showing at BLAST makes him someone to consider despite the price of $213,000, while the likes of Nikola "⁠NiKo⁠" Kovač, Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut, and Owen "⁠smooya⁠" Butterfield are all likely to bring in points, but will be hard to budget for coming in at $237,000 or more.

Prizes for the HLTV x BitSkins IEM Winter Fantasy game are:

1. Shadow Daggers | Crimson Web (Field-Tested)
2. Gut Knife | Crimson Web (Field-Tested)
3. Navaja Knife | Crimson Web (Field-Tested)

Participants of the Fantasy game are required to abide by the Fantasy ruleset if they want to win the available prizes. Winners of the official HLTV x BitSkins league will be contacted via the email provided in their HLTV account, and must reply within one month to be eligible to receive any prize.
