Good news for all of us who cannot get enough of esports! The IEM Dallas 2022 began on May 30th, which means that if you have not done that by now, it is time to start forming up your Fantasy team.
With the $1,000,000 budget at your disposal, you now have the opportunity to assemble the finest possible squad that could potentially earn you some great prizes.
As the event is held in a one-match elimination format, understanding how the bracket will turn out is critical to forming a strong team.
It is also important to try setting it up in a way that your players advance in the competition as far as possible without meeting each other early on.
IEM Dallas Top Picks
Fin “karrigan” Andersen (FaZe)
Finn “karrigan” Andersen is one of the most picked CSGO players out there. This does not come as a surprise when you take into consideration how dominant FaZe has been recently and how big of a role “karrigan” had in their epic run.
The amount of money that you have to sacrifice to get him reaches the $209,000 mark, which is not much considering he is one of the best riflers in the game.
Havard “rain” Nygaard (FaZe)
Another FaZe member that is among the top picks is Havard “rain” Nygaard, also priced at $209k like his fellow teammate. Havard is known for his outstanding qualities as a player so it is no surprise that he was valued above $200k.
This is still not the highest amount you can pay for a player in this tournament. If you decide to add him or “karrigan” to your roster, or maybe even both, you will be joining thousands of players who made the same choice, for more than obvious reasons.
Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut (Vitality)
The Vitality star is actually the most expensive player on the Fantasy roster. If you want to obtain him, you will need to use $236,000 from your million.
Although the amount may seem too high, ZywOo’s career and his recent form serve as a great supporting argument for why he was priced at that peculiar amount. Also, Vitality is expected to have an easy path through the group stage, which only added a few thousands to the price of an already expensive player.
Nikola “Niko” Kovac (G2)
A name that does not need much introduction is definitely the one and only “Niko”. Right behind Vitality leader, Niko is priced as the second most expensive player in the tournament at $235,000.
Considering his performances at the last two major tournaments, some may argue that his price could have been expected to be even higher than that.
Team Heroic situation
Before the tournament officially began, many were picking Team Heroic to be the one to go through the group stage with ease. Their players “cadiaN”, “refreshz” and “TeSeS” were also among the top picks, but due to visa issues, the whole squad was forced to miss the event and will be replaced by Team MIBR.
The IEM Dallas Fantasy Rewards
The rewards are divided into two categories – CSGO items and money prizes ($10,000).
The CSGO items players have the chance to win:

Before you start competing at the IEM Dallas Fantasy, please make sure that you are familiar with the rules and guidelines so that nothing stands in the way of you having the best CSGO experience.
