Sixteen teams will battle for two spots at the BLAST Premier Spring Finals through the upcoming Showdown event, scheduled for April 13-18. The single-elimination tournament will also feature a Fantasy game, which is now open for action.
For their Fantasy lineups, users will be able to select from members of Astralis, Gambit, and Liquid, among others, with AWPers Dmitry “sh1ro” Sokolov, Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut, and Abdul “degster” Gasanov being the most expesive assets on offer ($240,000+).
The teams’ position within the bracket should also be taken into account for player selection, as OG being seeded 16th after a late roster-change resulted in them having a challenging matchup against Astralis in the first round.
The official HLTV x BitSkins Fantasy league prize pool is as follows:
1. Hydra Gloves | Emerald (Field-Tested)
2. AK-47 | Vulcan (Field-Tested)
3. AWP | Wildfire (Field-Tested)
The winners of the official Fantasy leagues will be contacted via the email provided in their HLTV profile, and are required to respond to the email within a month to be eligible to receive their prizes.
