Fantasy returns with $10,000 Spring season
The ten best-ranked users will share the spoils at the end of the season in July.
HLTV.org's Fantasy game is back in action, kicking off with Funspark ULTI 2021 Finals as the first event of the new season. In Spring, we will again be giving away $10,000 to those with the best Fantasy knowledge, but this time, the prize pool will be distributed among the best users.
Season standings are determined based on participation in Fantasy events. Users earn points based on their placings among all competitors at an event, the higher someone places, the more they earn. For example, the top 70% of users win 1 point, the top 10% win 12 points, and the top 1% win 25 points.
You can see the full distribution of points per event below:
Top 1% - 25 points
Top 3% - 18 points
Top 5% - 15 points
Top 10% - 12 points
Top 15% - 10 points
Top 25% - 8 points
Top 40% - 6 points
Top 50% - 4 points
Top 60% - 2 points
Top 70% - 1 point
News for the Spring season is that only the most competitive events will be part of the season and award season points. Therefore, a user doesn't have to compete in every single event if he aims to win the prize, but he must perform well in those that feature the world's best teams. Events that don't offer points will be clearly marked.
Season points will be consistently tallied up until the end of the season in July, when the top 10 will be eligible for their cut of the $10,000 prize pool. Unlike last season, when we had a winner-takes-all distribution, the winner of the Spring season will be taking home half of the sum, but nine more players will be rewarded for their efforts.

Please take note of the Fantasy rules before competing as they provide important information regarding the prizes, eligibility, and selection of winners. Fantasy is free of charge and can be played in official HLTV leagues, as well as independently organized private and public ones.
