The last Fantasy game of Spring season is now open to play
The latest HLTV.org Fantasy game for BLAST Spring Final will be the last of the season.
BLAST Premier Spring Final 2023 will be accompanied by the final HLTV Fantasy game for the Spring Season, bringing to a close a race that started all the way back in January and comprised 22 editions. The American event will go live between June 7-11 and will host seven of the best-performing teams from the BLAST circuit alongside Complexity who are stepping in for Natus Vincere.
ESL Impact League Finals will also be accompanied by a Partner Fantasy game as the event brings the final stage of the season to LAN in the heart of Texas. The tournament will take place between June 2-4 at DreamHack Dallas and will host the eight top-placed teams from the online segment competing for a $123,000 prize pool.
Vitality and Heroic account for the majority of the popular picks for BLAST Spring Finals as the two highest-ranked teams in the world are expected to challenge for the trophy. The two team's in-game leaders, Casper "cadiaN" Møller and Dan "apEX" Madesclaire, have topped the charts in terms of pick rate with nearly 50% of users picking at least one of the captains.
Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut's $240,000 prize tag might appear prohibitive, but it has already received a slight discount to allow players the ability to recruit the Paris Major MVP to their squads without too many compromises.
Players to receive a discount include Dmitry "sh1ro" Sokolov, Benjamin "blameF" Bremer, and René "TeSeS" Madsen while the likes of Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken, Rasmus "sjuush" Beck, and Håvard "rain" Nygaard have gone up in value.
The prizes for the BLAST Spring Finals are as follows:
1. Hydra Gloves | Emerald (Field-Tested)
2. AK-47 | Neon Rider (Field-Tested)
3. AWP | Hyper Beast (Field-Tested)
Nigma Galaxy and NAVI Javelins completely dominate the list of most popular picks. Ana "ANa" Dumbravă and Wiktoria "vicu" Janicka both display a price tag of $228,000 and have been picked by more than 32% of users as their teams' respective stars.
Olga "Olga" Rodrigues comes into the Texas event as the most expensive asset in this edition of the Fantasy game at $234,000, a justifiable price as the Brazilian rifler currently averages a 1.33 rating in 2023.
The following skin prizes are up for grabs for ESL Impact Finals:
1. AK-47 | Neon Rider (Field-Tested)
2. M4A1-S | Hyper Beast (Field-Tested)
3. AK-47 | Neon Revolution (Field-Tested)
Lucy "LucyLuce" Eastwood continues to lead the Spring Season Celebrity Leaderboard with 170 points, with the Australian caster within touching distance of the $1,000 prize. Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez currently appears as the only one capable of challenging for the title, but trails 6 points behind the leader with two tournaments to go.
The current top five looks as follows:
Lucy "LucyLuce" Eastwood - 170 points
Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez - 164 points
Pitu "PituHerranz" Herranz - 148 points
Donald "Voo" Parkhurst - 138 points
