We take a look at the fantasy selections that should make your roster for the quarterfinals of the DreamHack Masters Malmo.
For a while now, S1mple has been one of the best players in the world. He moved from a world No. 4 ranking in 2017 to a No. 8 ranking in 2018 before improving to No. 1 last year. That form hasn’t deserted him this year either. He averages 0.85 kills per round (23253 kills in 27255 rounds), sensational by any standard. His K/D ratio of 1.30 is one of the highest in the circuit.
Form is an important metric for your roster selection. Kjaerbye’s recent form has been significantly better than the rest of his career. In his career, he averages about 0.72 kills per round. However, in the last three months, he has 0.77 kills per round. He has been North’s saviour for a long period of time now. He has over 24,000 kills in 33,661 rounds in his career.
As Dupreeh has developed, his game has gotten increasingly better. The proof is in his ranking. He was ranked 18 in 2013, 16 in 2014, 12 in 2015, 10 in 2017 and 5 in 2018. That’s consistent progress. Over his career, which spans over 38,000 rounds, he has averaged 0.75 kills and 0.65 deaths per round, with a steady K/D ratio of 1.15.
An offensive weapon for any team. Twistzz has been steady, yet destructive. Just 19 years of age, he has a calm head under pressure, which has been a valuable asset for the world’s best team in the world. Of his 17,641 kills, over 60% have been headshots. His real value, from a fantasy perspective, lies in his K/D ratio of 1.21.
Relatively inexperienced, but he has the same career K/D ratio as Twistzz, and he’s priced much cheaper. In 58 games, he has an average of 301 picklebet points. He averages 0.76 kills and 0.63 deaths per round. He also adds plenty of value through his assists (0.15 per round). Priced at 17,600 credits, he nicely rounds up this roster.
Total cost for the above five players = 99,520
