06.02.20 CSGO Blast Slate

More single games…hooray. The super early DreamHack slate showcasing the worst teams around the world (Asia) will be covered in our premium Discord because the honest truth is why would you play a tournament for those awful teams at 6 AM? If the answer is that you’re a degenerate gambler whose anxiety can’t let you skip a slate…come join some like minded friends and sign up for premium! Just tell your SO it’s the closest they’ll ever get you to AA and they should be proud to pay for the subscription. Good luck and game on. 

Draftkings’ scoring follows the chart shown below, with a focus on K/D and clutch plays. Rosters are set with a Captain position who receives 1.5x his points at 1.5x his salary, but beyond that it is positionless. This is important to understand because CS teams follow a composition of different roles such as IGL (In game leader), entry fragger, support, etc. With Draftkings making no distinction between players, it is left to you to decide which roles are most important within this scoring system and to take advantage of that. For several teams for example, their IGL is not often going to score highly as they may be less skilled at the game but are valuable in ways that Draftkings doesn’t record. With that in mind, we will jump into a quick look at the roles of key players, their key stats, and how their perceived performance should fare in accordance with their salary. 

Players
StatisticFantasy Points*Players drafted as Captain earn 1.5x fantasy point values
Kills+1.5 Pts
Assists+1 Pt
Deaths-1 Pt
Entry Kill (First Kill of the round)+0.5 Pts
1v2 Clutch+1 Pt

Fanduel Scoring

MVP – 1.5X Points (1)Player (4)Team (1)

Deaths -1.5Deaths -1Rounds Lost -.5
Assists 1.5Assists 1Match Won 10
Headshots .3Headshots .2Team Sweep 10
Sweep Bonus 22.5Sweep Bonus 15

Fanduel has 6 slots for a captain, 4 standard players, and a team. The captain position does not affect a player’s salary like it does on Draftkings. This is particularly advantageous for when you have an inkling that a superstar will put up a large performance but you don’t want to limit your options elsewhere. The team slot will be a lot of fun for those situations where you like a team to win but don’t like the fantasy prospects of any particular players so you can still get some exposure. We figure most users will try to pick the cheapest winning team because a lot of the stats you get points for are hard to predict, but a winning team should definitely fare better.

Our top plays are designed to show the most playable options on each team, factoring in performance and price. The top 2 plays on each team will be in our player pool and the third tier top plays are people we will sprinkle in a bit along with the core group. All of the statistics shown are for the last 3 months to see who has been performing well recently while still keeping a significant sample size.

They looked like an unpolished turd yesterday and they have a tendency to blow games every now and then. They should be lower owned today and in an okay spot but will they break our hearts again? Probably.

This team is more talented than they seem and they stand a solid chance against a streaky fnatic squad. They have a few big boys who have been in great form and locking in 1 or 2 makes a lot of sense.

What a great matchup for NiP, against a group of losers. They are in a great spot and are an easy target. Don’t go too overboard but 2 guys here can do well.

Bub got the dub yesterday and carried his team in grand fashion, much to the joy or dismay of many of you. They have another solid matchup today and only time will tell if he pulls off another great performance.

They have a tough matchup and are kind of expensive. They could get this done but it’s going to depend on which slate you are looking at to determine if they are worthy of being targeted today against MAD.

Cloud9 has the best matchup of the day but anything can happen online. Barring a poor showing, this is a solid team to target today. Their pricing makes them pretty attractive and easy to fit in.

How much the teams care about this online, best of 1 tourney can be perfectly summed up by KSCERATO microwaving a snack in the middle of the game yesterday. HEN1 didn’t really need any help anyways but still a fun look into this mess.

GenG stomped a bad team yesterday but face a much taller task here. This seems pretty even and maybe targeting a top guy from each side makes a lot of sense if this one’s close.

If MiBR loses this, they are in dire need of help and they might already be that far gone anyways. A best of 1 will not be that damning but they really need to showcase something soon.

This team is drastically outgunned on paper but MiBR has not been themselves. There is an opportunity for an upset here but don’t go crazy with that thought as even an upset should be a battle.
