IEM Katowice Fantasy Tournament 2022

Welcome to the IEM Katowice Fantasy Tournament 2022

The 15th of February marks the start of one of the largest csgo tournaments this year. The IEM Season XVI - Katowice holds a prize pool of 1,000,000 USD and a large team pool of 24. This means that there will be a lot of new teams and players to pick in this upcoming fantasy tournament. Not only will there be a bigger player pool this tournament than what we have had in the past, but we have also done a lot of updates to our point system and interface in the app. Read up on all the changes and the rules for this tournament below .

Point System - Reworked

Here is a whole new point system for IEM Katowice 2022

1 Kill = +0.3 points

1 Assist = +0.3 points

1 Death = -0.15 points

KD-rating = 0-4 points

  • KD-rating: 0.8-1.0 = 1 point
  • KD-rating: 1.0-1.2 = 2 points
  • KD-rating: 1.2-1.5 = 3 points
  • KD-rating: 1.5+ = 4 points

Winning a match series = 2 points

Losing a match series = 0 points

Another important change:

You will no longer recieve points for every map a player plays. Instead the player will recieve points per series.

Example BO3-series:

Map 1 = 11 points, map 2 = 12 points & map 3 = 9 points. In this case that player would recieve 32/3 = 10.7 points. Of course + the average KD-rating in that series and the extra 2 points if that players team won that series.

Captain Feature

We believe that the captain feature was way too powerful, therefore the captain feature has now been nerfed from giving a whopping 100% bonus, to the now more reasonable 20% bonus. Another change we did is that the captain booster will stay on a player until you actively change it to another player, you have 1 captain-swap every day. You will lose your captain-swap for the day if your captain have started a match-series.

Captain = 1.2x bonus points

Selling a player

You can now sell and buy players during the tournament! When selling a player, you will be refunded the amount you purchased the player for. However, you can not sell a player if they are in a match. You will keep the points of your sold players.

You can do this 2 times per tournament.

Bench Mechanics

The bench mechanic is an important game mechanic in our fantasy tournaments and can make a big difference in how many points you get.

Each fantasy team consists of 6 players. One of these has to occupy the bench. While on the bench, that player does not accumulate any points. It's only when they are swapped out with one of the active players that they gain points.

So, for example. If you have player A playing on Monday and player B playing on Tuesday. A good strategy then would be to swap those players once you have recieved your points for Player A.

You can swap players 1 time per day (reset 00:00 CET).
