Six teams are left in competition for the IEM Summer 2021 title, with three days of playoff action scheduled for the upcoming weekend, June 11-13. Users can create their five-man Fantasy team from members of teams such as OG, G2, and Vitality and join leagues until the start of the first playoff match – Gambit vs. Evil Geniuses at 16:45 on Friday.
Despite a group-stage slip-up, Gambit remain favorites to claim the title, but their trio of Abay “Hobbit” Khasenov, Sergey “Ax1Le” Rykhtorov and Dmitry “sh1ro” Sokolov all come in for more than $230,000, making budgeting difficult. For G2, who have been rising in form over the last two months, Nikola “NiKo” Kovač ($218,000) and Nemanja “huNter-” Kovač ($209,000) stand out, albeit François “AmaNEk” Delaunay ($187,000) has provided immense value as the team’s AWP.
Players under $200,000 that shouldn’t be overlooked are Kévin “misutaaa” Rabier (1.29 group stage rating), Alexey “Qikert” Golubev (1.13), and Owen “oBo” Schlatter (1.13), as all three have recorded an uptick in performance at this event.
The prizes for the official HLTV x BitSkins Fantasy league are as follows:
1. Gut Knife | Crimson Web (Field-Tested)
