IEM Cologne Fantasy games go live

The Fantasy for the last big event before the summer break will be split up into two games.

As the Fantasy Spring season 2022 is coming to an end, now is the final chance to get some points on the leaderboard before seasonal prizes are given out. The Fantasy game for IEM Cologne is split into two games, which have both been opened, first for the Play-In stage and then for the Main event, with both HLTV x Roobet leagues awarding the most successful players with skin prizes.

misutaaa is currently the most picked player in the Play-In

There are certainly a few favorite teams in the Play-In stage, which is supported by the fact that six out of the eight most picked players come from just three teams. These teams are Vitality, who are the highest rated team in the stage, Heroic, who have recently added Jakob "⁠jabbi⁠" Nygaard to their roster and BIG, who have just won the Roobet Cup 2022.

The most popular budget picks for the game include Kévin "⁠misutaaa⁠" Rabier, Tizian "⁠tiziaN⁠" Feldbusch and Leonid "⁠chopper⁠" Vishnyakov who with their low price make squad building a lot easier, allowing you to pick up a player with a much higher price tag.

Speaking of star players, Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut is the most expensive player at this stage with a price of $235,000, but given his fragging potential and the fact that his team are the highest rated and have looked much improved in the last event they played, he still comes in as the fourth most picked player.

Other star players from the higher rated teams to consider are Martin "⁠stavn⁠" Lund and Florian "⁠syrsoN⁠" Rische, who are the highest rated players of their teams and are expected to do well against lower rated opposition. An exciting option is also Spirit's new AWPer, Igor "⁠w0nderful⁠" Zhdanov, but his high price of $225,000 might dissuade people from picking him, given that he is currently yet unproven against tier one opposition.

The prizes for the Play-In HLTV x Roobet League are as follows:

1. Hydra Gloves | Emerald (Field-Tested)
2. Hydra Gloves | Rattler (Field-Tested)
3. Driver Gloves | Racing Green (Field-Tested)

karrigan's low price of $173,000 makes him a popular option

The game for the main event is also open, but it is worth noting that teams coming from Play-in will be added to the game as they qualify, meaning that until the game is started, you’ll be able to reassemble your team with players from qualified teams.

Some of the teams already qualified contain the likes of Natus Vincere and FaZe, alongside five other top 10 teams. While the team list is still incomplete players have already started assembling their squads, with Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen currently being the most popular player, who should get some decent points when coupled with a Leader role if his team justify their ranking as the best team in the world.

The prizes for the IEM Cologne HLTV x Roobet League are as follows:

1. Navaja Knife | Crimson Web (Field-Tested)
2. AWP | BOOM (Field-Tested)
3. AK-47 | Bloodsport (Field-Tested)

Aside from the event prizes, Fantasy players compete for the $10,000 season reward, with the battle for the top spot being wide open:

1. Slovakia sekaniramelanir – 250 points
2. Poland IXAR – 247 points
3. Ukraine vba1016 - 246 points
4. Poland MaQsimus - 245 points
5. Latvia UnfriendlyV - 242 points
