Fantasy game for PGL Major Antwerp Legends Stage is now live
Celebrate the start of the next stage of the Major by playing the new edition of the Fantasy game.
After a Challengers Stage packed full of action, eight teams have advanced to the Legends Stage of the PGL Major Antwerp 2022 where they will meet the teams that excelled during the Regional Major Ranking events. As the last sixteen prepare for another Swiss system rumble, you can prove your knowledge of Counter-Strike by competing in our Fantasy game against more than 13,000 other users.
It comes as no surprise that all FaZe players have made their way into the top picks for this edition of the Fantasy game, coming in as the favorites to advance to the playoffs without too many issues. After a MVP campaign at ESL Pro League S15, Robin "ropz" Kool ($215,000) quickly rose to become the most picked player, followed by Finn "karrigan" Andersen ($173,000) and Helvijs "broky" Saukants ($217,000). Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken ($208,000) and Håvard "rain" Nygaard ($196,000) also made the cut, with Fantasy users hoping for FaZe to go all the way to a swift 3-0.
Natus Vincere players are also proving to be popular, with Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev being picked more than 2,700 times despite the hefty price tag of $255,000. Ilya "Perfecto" Zalutskiy ($188,000) and Valeriy "b1t" Vakhovskiy ($211,000) both turned to be more sought-after due to their value allowing more flexibility than their superstar teammate.
Some users might want to take their chance on a Ludvig "Brollan" Brolin ($208,000) pick. The young Swede has so far accumulated a 1.15 rating with NIP, but as the rifler adapts more with his new squad, those numbers could go way up. Another player to keep an eye on is Kévin "misutaaa" Rabier, especially after a solid Challengers Stage which he left with a 1.15 rating. If the Frenchman manages to maintain a level anyway close to that, the price tag of just $173,000 could make him one of the best value for money picks in the whole game.
