      By Ballack

      Worlds 2015: Quarterfinals Fantasy Advice Ready for the knockout rounds? The group stages were filled with plenty of exciting games, favorites and underdogs prevailing, teams from North America letting us all down, and some good fantasy picks and some bad. As in everything in life its impossible to be 100% correct on my picks everytime. I use my analysis, price points, and match ups to determine who to pick and although it doesn't always work out, the process is still correct. If we could all p

    IEM Cologne: Day Two Fantasy Advice

    IEM Cologne: Day Two Fantasy Advice Hope yesterday went well for you guys. Besides C9 losing I thought it was a really good day one. Here's a look at today's players:   Just a quick note that today's Vulcun contests will run over to tomorrow and include the finals. So make sure you take that into account as you make your lineup. QG looked very sloppy yesterday but eventually pulled off the series win vs DIG, I think there luck runs out today and they'll fall to FNATIC in

    IEM Cologne: Day One Fantasy Advice

    IEM Cologne: Day One Fantasy Advice IEM Cologne Day One is on Friday and it's time to take a look at the match-ups and fantasy analysis for the weekend. Here are the players on day one:     Full disclosure I do not know a ton about Qiao Gu, but what I do know is the finished second in the LPL during the summer split falling to LGD in the finals in five games. In the games in which they won during that series their ADC TnT played hyper carries Vayne and Kog'maw and mid laner D

    Allstars 2015: Day Two

    Allstars 2015: Day Two Welcome back in for Day Two everyone. Yesterday went ok - could've been better but I still cashed in most games I played. Hopefully you did as well! Let's take a look at Day Two.   I like players from the NALCS, EULCS, and LCK in general today. In theory, NALCS has the easiest matchup and the LCK has a tough matchup, but I have faith in the LCK.   Here are my lineups for Day Two: Vulcun: Top: Marin (LCK) ($1137) Jungle: Score (LCK)

    Allstars 2015: Day One Welcome in everyone. With the allstar event about to start it's time to take a look at the fantasy aspects of the tournament for Alphadraft, Vulcun, and Draftkings. Let's dig in for day one.     I'm personally trying to fit Marin, Faker, and Pray in wherever it's possible. The LCK will be heavily favored throughout the tournament, but never more so than on Day One against the Wildcard Region. Expect them to stomp the IWC pretty easily. My favorite

    IEM San Jose: Day Two Fantasy Advice

    IEM San Jose: Day Two Fantasy Advice Welcome back in. Yesterday didn't go quite as I expected. I got things half right with CLG beating UoL, but TSM's new roster did work against LGD with a nice 2-0. LGD looked bad, they should've probably won game two, but regardless both games put up some decent fantasy numbers for us, even being wrong about LGD. The biggest problem I had was that I used Flame on DraftKings and he only played one game. Going forward, I think it may be wise to stay away fr

    IEM San Jose: Day One Fantasy Advice

    IEM San Jose: Day One Fantasy Advice Welcome everyone, it's been a month since Worlds and if you're like me you've been itching for some competitive League of Legends to watch again. Luckily this weekend gives us something good to watch with IEM San Jose taking place. The teams involved include CLG, TSM, OG, UoL, JaG, and LGD. There has been a lot of turnover in the last month as far as rosters are concerned, so let's take a look at the rosters for this tournament going into Day One. U

    Have you ever had met a person in life who shared all of your interests? Thought the way you do? The Moriarty to your Sherlock - Sometimes the other way around? Well, my brother, Chris, was and is that to me. There is nothing in this world that gets my blood flowing like the thrill of a challenge, a competition, or pursuit of perfection.   The earliest memory I have is playing Mortal Kombat Ultimate.

    Worlds 2015: Semi-Final Advice

    Worlds 2015: Semi-Final Advice Here are the Semi-Final Odds: FNATIC and SKT are the favorites to head to the World Finals. I would recommend fading ORG as SKT have looked near unstoppable. KOO provides some interesting salary relief plays. Here's a list of all the players left in the tournament: Vulcun: Top: Marin (SKT) ($1261) Jungle: Hojin (KOO) ($1175) Mid: Faker (SKT) ($1420) ADC: Bang (SKT) ($1514) Sup: GOrilla (KOO) ($994) Flex One: Huni (FNC) ($1252) Flex Two: YellowStar (FNC) ($

Here's a look at the players for Day Seven: Vulcun: Top: ssumday (KTR) ($1245) - Shotcaller Jungle: Score (KTR) ($1257) Mid: Nagne (KTR) ($152

    Worlds 2015: Day Four Fantasy Advice

    Worlds 2015: Day Four Fantasy Advice Here are the odds for Day Four via esports-betting.pro/lol : LGD are the biggest favorites of the day. The best underdog looks like CLG. I'm fading Pain Gaming vs. Flash Wolves even though the line is somewhat close.  Here are my picks for Day Four: CLG are the best dog of the day with a real chance to beat KOO Tigers. That said pairing Doublelift and Aphroo has paid off nicely so far, and they're both really good cheap options on Day Four. Double is

    Worlds 2015: Day Three Fantasy Advice

    Worlds 2015: Day Three Fantasy Advice Here's a look at the odds for Day 3: H2k are the heaviest favorites, but how much do you trust them? BKT have looked awful, true, but they've also faced arguably the two best teams in SKT and EDG. FNATIC are a heavy favorite but their games tend to be very objective focused, which is not the most fantasy friendly outcome. I still don't fully trust C9. The best underdogs are EDG and KTR.  Here are my favorite players for Day Three: I'm staying away fr

    Worlds 2015: Day Two Fantasy Advice   Here are Day Two's odds according to http://www.esports-betting.pro/lol/ SKT are the heaviest favorites of the day, while the best underdogs look like Flash Wolves. I would recommend fading H2k, Bangkok Titans, and Origen. I personally don't have a good feeling about TSM against KT Rolster either. After EDG's destruction of BKT, I think its safe to think a similar result will take place when SKT plays BKT on Day Two. Here are my favorite plays for Day Tw

    Worlds 2015: Day One Fantasy Advice   I am HYPED for Worlds to start. This lay off of competitive League has really taken me out of my usual Thursday through Sunday routine. But it's back, baby! I'm pretty pumped up, as I'm sure most of you are. Remember if you're playing fantasy, use the vVv Gaming link to get a 100% deposit match on Vulcun!   As usual I tend to want to go with players who are on teams favored to win and players who have high KDA potential as that's where the bulk of your p

    Well than. Part 1

    Everything must go, it's a fact. But it doesn't mean it's going to be easy to accept.   Have you ever just sat in a coffee shop and asked yourself, "What if I made smaller, better choices in my past?" I don't think many people really think about that, sorry, think about those kinds of simple questions very often, or at all.   I mean come on, what if you were that teenager in High School that never did any of those drugs that everyone thought was so "cool?" .. Or what if you were tha

It's actually a tough week because upsets could easily happen with these two best of threes.   However I am going with the stats and based off previous performances the following picks I believe are going to put me in the money pool.   TOP Apple - $1136 JUNGLER Chaser - $1252 MID Crown - $1332 ADC Fury - $1412 SUPPORT IgNar - $930 FLEX Roar - $1260 SHOTCALLER FLEX TrAce - $1209 FLEX Pilot

    Fantasy LCS: Must Plays, Sleepers, Busts for NA Week Nine/Day One   The best matchup's of the day are C9 vs. TDK, TSM vs. NME, and TL vs. T8.   Top:   Must Play: Quas (TL) ($1312) vs. T8: He's the most expensive top laner on a day when it's going to be hard to fit all the top options in, but he probably has the most upside.   Sleeper: Balls (C9) ($1067) vs. TDK: C9 have been playing much better sicne Hai rejoined and I think they will beat TDK.
