We are happy to introduce the ESL Fantasy season for the CS:GO major at Dreamhack. After testing the fantasy waters for CS:GO at ESL One Cologne, we are now bringing CS:GO fantasy esports back for another outing with the support of ASUS Republic of Gamers for North America and Canada.
Those who participated in the ESL One Cologne CS:GO Fantasy league will recognize the scoring system:
The DreamHack CS:GO tournament will play out between November the 27th and 29th. You’ll have $5500 in virtual currency to spend on your roster. After each match day, the players will unlock with adjusted fantasy values, depending on their performance, allowing users to update their fantasy rosters on a day-to-day basis.
The following groups have been confirmed for group stage matchups:
|Group A||Group B||Group C||Group D|
|Bravado Gaming||PENTA Sports||ESC Gaming||myXMG|
|Cloud 9||Team Dignitas||NiP-Gaming||Na’Vi|
|HellRaisers||iBUYPOWER||Planetkey Dynamics||Flipsid3 Tactics|
Just join with your existing ESL account or sign up via Facebook, Google+ or Twitter and populate your five-man roster with your dream team.
After the conclusion of DreamHack and its respective Fantasy Series, you’ll have a chance at winning the following prizes, depending on your region and your fantasy performance:
|DreamHack ESL Fantasy Prizes|
|1st place||1 x ASUS Notebook G751JT-DH72*|
|2nd place||1 x ASUS Nomad backpack*|
|3rd place||1 x CS:GO t-shirt Stealth Dispatch|
*Due to warranty, only winners with a valid North American address can qualify for ASUS prizes as they can only be shipped within the United States and Canada. Players from other regions will get replacement prizes (1st place: Nexus 9 or iPad Air 2; 2nd place: €100 ESL Shop voucher).
We’re looking forward to seeing you in our ESL Fantasy league brought to you by ASUS Republic of Gamers! Additionally, you can also look forward to a lot more fantasy esports as ASUS will not only be sponsoring the DreamHack Fantasy league but also many more leagues in the months to come – your fantasy cravings will definitely not be going unfulfilled any time soon!
