Smite Console League Week 6
Last Week Recap - Week 5Thursday and Monday are NA, Friday is EU
Most Wanted and Kingdom played for the first set of the week. Most Wanted was heavily in control for the first game of the set, taking it pretty cleanly. Kingdom held their own in the early game of game two, thanks in part to their hunter | Despair | on Anhur, but Most Wanted was able to push their lead towards the end of the mid game and forced an F6 out of Kingdom at 20 minuites.
Set two of the day was the runback of the week 3 set between SoaR and Noble. SoaR played aggressively from the beginning in game 1, taking out Noble in 26 minutes with not too much trouble. Despite some DC issues in the early game of game 2 from SoaR, they came back from them extremely strong, with a game end that was only 4 seconds longer than Noble's F6 in game 1.
The final set of the day was with Eager and eLevate. Game 1 saw a lot of back and forth in the kill count in the early game, with Eager holding a slight gold advantage throughout. Eager changed this around the 15 minute mark - they ended up not dropping another death and forced a sub-20 minute surrender out of eLevate. Game 2 saw some role swaps on eLevate's side, with Paul from PC going to the jungle, StormyRays going to solo, Freya to mid, and xBroadway to support. Paul pulled out his signature He Bo and helped eLevate get a fair lead in the early and mid game in both kills and gold. However, Eager was able to farm back up to even gold, get some key picks, and eventually regain the advantage to close out the game in 36 minutes.
exceL and Barrage played their third and final set of the split. In game 1, exceL was able to outfarm Barrage and keep an advantage in kills for the first 15 minutes or so, but Barrage won a key teamfight behind the Gold Fury at 18 minutes that turned the game in their favor. They closed the game out about 10 minutes later, dropping only 2 deaths in the process. Barrage then went to shut exceL out 14 kills to none in game 2 at just over 20 minutes, leaving the bottom seed still winless.
eXcellence and RivaL played their final set together for the split as well. RivaL played heavily off the back of their jungler Rapio on Ao Kuang, who ended the game with 13 of the team's 18 kills. Game 2 was extremely back and forth, with eXcellence clawing out a gold lead in the mid 20 minutes. Despite kills continuing to trade back and forth and RivaL getting a phoenix, eXcellence held this gold lead and ended the set at 38 minutes, showing that they could take a game from anyone in the EU SCL.
Noble and Kingdom played as the bottom two seeds in NA. Noble held the gold lead since first blood and, despite Kingdom having some good fights, ended the game sub 30 minutes. Game 2 was much more contentious between the two teams. Noble manage to hold a gold lead for a good chunk of the game, but a well-played teamfight by Kingdom at 22 minutes secured them a phoenix. The game remained close in gold and kills afterwards, with Kingdom having the slight advantage. Kingdom pushed this advantage, closing out an extremely tight game in 45 minutes and taking their first win of the split.
Current Standings EU
Predictions eLevate v. Noble: 2-0 to eLevate. eLevate looked solid last week despite their losses, and if they keep these role swaps I think they will do well here. Noble, meanwhile looked a bit shaky when they lost a game to the bottom seed. This set has potential to split, but I slightly favor eLevate in the matchup, especially since they won the last head to head. SoaR v. Kingdom: 2-0 to SoaR. Kingdom won their first game on Monday, but it was against the 5th seed in NA. It is still unlikely that they win a game here againt a top 3 team. Eager v. Most Wanted: 1-1 Split. This set split last time, and both teams seem to be fairly evenly matched. It could potentially go 2-0 to either team if one team shows up more than the other, but the safe bet here is to give the teams a game apiece. Barrage v. eXcellence: 1-1 Split. This matchup has split both times previously, although one could attribute the last time to Barrage's slightly trolly composition. I do think that eXcellence has what it takes to take a third game off of the boys in blue, but don't be too surprised if Barrage takes this one. RivaL v. exceL: 2-0 to RivaL. exceL still doesn't have a win, and I don't expect RivaL to let them change that as a top team in EU. eLevate v. Most Wanted: 2-0 to Most Wanted. eLevate is a good team, but Most Wanted is a great team. I don't see them dropping another game for the rest of the split to a team that isn't Eager. If eLevate absolutely stomps Noble, this has slight potential to change to a split vote, but not much. Where to Watch:http://twitch.tv/HirezTV, Thursday @ 3pm EST, Friday @ 1pm EST, Moday @ 3pm EST.
Oceanic Pro League Week 9
Last Week Recap - Week 8
Llamas in Pyjamas and Pandamonium played an extremely contentious set on Saturday. Llamas started the game off slightly ahead, by Pandamonium clawed back a slight gold lead by 20 minutes, but Llamas answered back with a slight lead around 30. Llamas end up closing out the game at minute 44, only 3k gold up and with a kill count of 37 to 29. While game 2 was also somewhat close, Pandamonium didn't give Llamas quite as much breathing room in game 2. Subfloor's 12/2 Rama and Ochita's 8/1 Janus helped carry the game to a 33 minute victory for the Pandas.
Avant Garde and Corvidae played for the second set of the night. In game 1, Avant Garde held a lead the entire game (despite Corvidae holding their own in a few teamfights) and ended up sacrificing all but their hunter Robdigidy on Hou Yi to secure a 19 minute Titan kill. Avant Garde came out of the gates strong in game 2 as well, but Corvidae answered back with a couple of good teamfights in the early mid-game. Avant Garde capitalized on an overextension by Corvidae in the late game and were able to eventually end at 35 minutes because of it.
Incite and Dead Weight was an extremely interesting set. In game 1, Incite absolutely wrecked the top seed in the OPL, ending the game at 30 minutes with an 18-2 kill count. Game 2 was much closer, with an even kill count and a gold differential of less than 3k for most of the first 30 minutes. At that time, Incite won a huge fight in the long lane that ended with them securing the long lane phoenix. They close out the set in 36 minutes with a 2-0 against the top seed.
This past week, Llamas in Pyjamas were acquired by organization Alpha Sydney.
Predictions Incite v. Alpha Sydney: 2-0 to Incite. Incite has made a huge turn around since the beginning of the split. They took a set off of the first seed team Dead Weight last week, and are now tied with them. Alpha Syndey also took a game off Pandamonium last week. I think Alpha could take a game potentially, but it is much more likely that Incite takes the set. Pandamonium v. Corvidae: 2-0 to Pandamonium. Corvidae is still winless, and based on their final two weeks it seems like it may remain that way. The Pandas have been struggling some, but they should still have what it takes to win this set. Dead Weight v. Avant Garde: 2-0 to Dead Weight. Despite dropping 3 of their last 4 games (to current seeds 1-tied and 3), Dead Weight is still a top team. They should not have much trouble taking both games here unless these previous losses signify something worse for them other than "Incite and Pandamonium playing up".

Copa Smite LatinoAmerica Week 2 (CSL / LatAm Smite Pro League)
Last Week Recap - Week 1 On Monday:
(South) Kaos Latin Gamers v Team Simulator - This set went 2-0 to KLG. I was unable to find the VOD, but if anyone can, let me know.
(North) Licht Esports v Why So Cereal - In game 1, Light Esports ran the game the entire time, dropping only 2 deaths and acquiring 22 in the 25 minute game. Game 2 was more contentious, remaining fairly even in kills and gold for the first 20 minutes, but Licht Esports began to pull ahead around that time and took the set 2-0.
(South) Rebirth Esports v Isurus Gaming - Isurus ran train on Rebirth Esports both games, with neither of them looking the slightest bit difficult for Isurus. They take the set 2-0 in less than an hour in game time.
(South) Isurus Gaming v Hafnet Esports - This set went 2-0 to Hafnet Esports. I was unable to find the VOD, but if anyone can, let me know.
(North) Luccini Gaming v Why So Cereal - Game 1 remained fairly close in gold for a majority of its 42 minute contest. However, Luccini were able to win a few late game team fights and sustain enough with CarryMe's Sylvanus to close out the game. Game two was not nearly as close. Luccini pushed the game from the start, ending the game about 15 minutes earlier than their previous game with little trouble.
(South) Kaos Latin Gamers v Coliseo Dragons - Game 1 saw a somewhat close early game, but KLG's superior experience let them push the envelope and take the game in under 30 minutes. Game 2 was in KLG's favor the entire game, and they end up forcing a surrender vote out of Coliseo Dragons in the 22nd minute.
(South) Coliseo Dragons v Rebirth Esports - Game 1 saw a very back and forth game for the first 25 minutes of the game, where Coliseo Dragons turned up and pushed their lead into an eventual win. Game 2 started off a bit slower than game 1, with Coliseo Dragons outfarming Rebirth. This, coupled with the raw sustain out of TelK's Ra and Banshee's Guan Yu, spelled an extremely snowbally mid game for Coliseo Dragons, and they closed out the game in 22 minutes.
(North) Licht Esports v Luccini Gaming - In game 1, Licht ended up farming better and acquiring more kills in the early and mid game. Luccini seemed to hold their own at certain points in the game, but overall Licht seemed stronger in game 1 and close it out in 26 minutes. In game 2, it was Luccini that found slightly more kills and gold in the early game, but Licht found a few good teamfights and clawed their way into a slight lead in the midgame. They pushed that slight lead into a heavy lead, taking game 2 in 35 minutes, thanks in great part to Sleeptight's 12/3 perfornance on Rama.
(South) Isurus Gaming v Coliseo Dragons - Isurus started off game 1 with a large number of kills, but Coliseo Dragons showed that they could hold their own in the farm game despite being down a number of kills. However, Isurus' ridiculous kill count only increased, and they ended up smothering the Dragons in 25 minutes. Game 2 saw a more even early and mid game. In the end, Isurus found a lead, ran with it, and took the second game in only a few minutes more than game 1.
(North) Luccini Gaming v Aether Gaming - Aether Gaming had a commanding lead from the start in game 1, and ended up forcing an 18 minute surrender out of Luccini. Luccini were able to fight back a lot more in the early game of game 2, but Aether again took the lead and ran with it, ending game 2 in 28 minutes with a 12k gold lead.
Current Standings North
Why So Cereal
Kaos Latin Gamers
Predictions Monday -
Kaos Latin Gamers v Hafnet Esports: 2-0 to KLG. We didn't get to see the Hafnet - Isurus set to my knowledge, but knowing that Isurus is one of the better teams in the region makes me think that this will be a good set. I could definitely see a split happening as well, but KLG came to DreamHack and played well, so I'm going to give the set to them based on their experience.
Why So Cereal v. Luccini Gaming: 2-0 to Luccini. This set happened last week and Luccini took it pretty convincingly, so I'm going to give the set to them.
Isurus Gaming v. Team Simulator: 2-0 to Isurus. We didn't see the Team Simulator set last week either, so we don't know how good they actually are at the moment. However, I'm giving this one to Isurus based on their previous prowess, but realistically this could go any direction since we've only actually seen one of the teams play.
Rebirth Esports v Kaos Latin Gamers: 2-0 to KLG. This is a set with presumably the best and worst team in the South LatAm region (based on what we know so far). I expect this one to be pretty clean in favor of KLG.
Luccini Gaming v Licht Esports: 2-0 to Licht. This set also occurred last week, and Licht took it 2-0. Luccini seemed to hold their own, however, so I wouldn't count a split out of the question. I have become a Sleeptight fan in a short amount of time, so I may be a little biased, but so far Licht may turn out to be the best team in North LatAm.
Hafnet Esports v Rebirth Esports: 2-0 to Hafnet. I'm giving this one to Hafnet based on each team's prowess against Isurus Gaming last week - Hafnet 2-0ed Isurus while Rebirth got 2-0ed.
Aether Gaming v Luccini Gaming: 2-0 to Aether. This set happened last week as well, and it went heavily in favor of Aether. I expect this to likely occur this week as well, as it is less than a week between the sets these two play.
Coliseo Dragons v Hafnet Gaming: 2-0 to Hafnet. I'm basing this set again on each team's scores against Isurus Gaming last week. Isurus defeated Coliseo and lost to Hafnet, so it is fairly likely that Hafnet takes this set.
Licht Esports v. Aether Gaming - 1-1 Split. We didn't see a lot of Aether last week, but we did see them take out Luccini Gaming convincingly. I think this set will be close, and it could potentially go either way.
Team Simulator v Coliseo Dragons - 1-1 Split. We didn't see any Team Simulator last week so we don't know how good they actually are, so my best guess is that they are potentially about even with Coliseo. Realistically, this set could go any which way because we don't know Simulator's prowess. This vote could change based on how they play against Isurus earlier in the week.
Relegations for split 2 of Brazil's Pro League airs today, July 24! Here are the teams participating:
CNB eSports Club

Hey Now, First and foremost thank you to the warm fuzzy responses from the pilot Fantasy Report last week. You most definitely encouraged me to not toss this project to the wayside, and keep writing about fantasy on the weekly. I aim to not disappoint and keep these articles at a high quality. Thanks. If you would like to go back and Fantasy Report #5, you can do so here Is this your first time coming across the Fantasy Report? Welcome my friend. Allow me to indulge you with the world of fantasy dota. While Season 1 admittedly has some kinks, these first 6 weeks have been a lot of fun, and actually quite comparable to my fantasy NBA and NFL leagues. Putting in five to ten minuets a day utilizing the right resources can drastically improve your game, and help you win your league. These Fantasy Reports will be a repeating weekly articles to share tips, highlight rising stars, help with roster swaps, stats, and to discuss everything that is fantasy doto! Week 6 was quite the exciting one. D2L, Good Play, and Bounty Hunter were all tournaments that ended early on in the week. Monday alone saw 900 points injected from 59 players. Arrow went on a tear winning two tournaments, and EG was equally impressive with their D2L win. When Arrow stopped playing, EG went on to end the week by playing 8 games Sunday and taking second place in ESL. Empire saw some action in D2L, but they gained some serious points by shit-stomping NaVi.US on Wednesday. Fun stats below. Week 7 is going to be the foil to 6's action-packed crazy antics. 7 is sure to be a real snore. As we build up to the start of TI4 in week 8, week 7 is our calm before the storm. I have done extensive research attempting to aggregate all of the match information this week. It was much harder than I thought it would be. Week 7 is going to be fantasy hell, as we see very, very, very few active fantasy teams and players. Even more so there is no good resource (gosubet, liquipedia, ingame calander) to schedule players off of. By my count there are seven active leagues that might be playing games this week. I have them all collected with these notes for easier access in the google doc below. JoinDota Final's for EU/NA/Asia are all still going on. They have been for a long time. Unfortunately no word on when the games will resume. Similarly in the land of "hey when the fuck are these games actually being played," we have datbet championship and WD Pro Series 3. Both of these events are organized by DotaTalk, and it seems as if they are just completely unable to efficiently communicate information about their tournaments. Fun fact: Datbet was scheduled to end May 18th. AMD D2M might have games too? I have no fucking clue. Speaking of shoddy organizers, can anyone tell me who is running GG League #1? They didn't even have a liquipedia page until I made that for them. For the life of me I cant find information about them on the web. However they do have their games on gosubet, and look like they will being played on a regular basis. Other current tourniments that have websites, and will be playing games this week, but I had to make Liquipedia pages for: Vietnam eSports Champions League 2014 & BoraDota Stars. Making the liquipedia pages was oddly enjoyable. I just wish that we had more tangible data for these leagues. At least we know that these three will be playing games. The four mentioned above....who knows. If every one of these leagues were active, these teams would be participating in X of them:
Whining about tournament information aside, week 7 is going to be rough. I can not tell you for sure who will be playing, and when they will be playing. JoinDota and GosuBet are not gonna do that much of a better job. If you want to stay on top of it be ready to trade daily, watching both their and my calendars. Good fucking luck comrades. If your league is super competitive, I might even consider throwing a week away in prep for TI4, which will start Playoffs in week 8. More on that below.
Rehashing last weeks post, I again encourage you to check out and use my spreadsheet. I have compiled a google doc that has each player's daily point earnings. This should be valuable information in letting you pick up only the best, and most active players. In addition on this document you can find overall team totals, and a handy calendar that will tell you what teams are playing when. USE THE CALENDAR! If you do not have active players every day then you're losing points. Don't lose points yo. You can find the document here
With this week being pretty dull, I am going to go over some more basic tips this week. TIME-ZONES! - CEST is the time zone that fantasy dota exists in. Time zones are pretty tricky. Valve tried to resolve this confusion by posting, in bold, what time your rosters lock. If you live in PDT like I do, we are seven hours behind CEST. Therefore midnight roster locking occurs at 5pm my time. I need to make sure to do all my swaps and trades before 5pm. In addition to rosters locking, all games played follow their date in CEST. A game played at 5:30pm for me on a Monday, is actually a Tuesday match. This is why the time zones can get messy, and it's super important you understand when games are played. Fortunately for everyone Gosubet and my calendar convert all the times to their CEST equivalent. Best of X - When a team plays a Best of X series, not all of the games will always count. If a team plays a Best of 3, and wins/loses 2-0, both of those games are recorded to their stats. However if the set goes to all three games; the fantasy system takes their 2 highest scoring of the 3 games, and uses those for their stats. Similar in a Best of 5, a player's top 3 games will be recorded, and extra dropped. 1 Trade, but All the Swaps - Every day you can drop 1 player from your roster, and add a free agent from the large available player pool. This is something that we have already gone over, but it is critical to succeeding. Especially in a week like this one with very few players playing! Take advantage of your daily drop to secure players who are....playing. Even tho you can only preform one trade, you can swap player's limitlessness. Make sure that your active players are not on the bench! Only Ticket'd Events Count - Something I myself learned after last week, if an event does not have a ticket in the store (v games) then their matches do not count towards fantasy points. Now that I know this I will make sure to only include teams playing in events that have dota store tickets in these analyses. TI4 Prep - Play-ins start Tuesday the 8th. Round robin group of 16 is the 9th through the 12th. The 13th is day 1 of phase 3 brackets. There is not going to be a lot of time between Week 7 nothingness and Week 8 awesomeness. It might be best to snag a few good players with your leftover trades now in preparation for next week. Dont be left with a roster of shitty SEA/South American players when it's showtime. I'll totes go more in depth on this week in the TI preview next week. =]
Week 6 Pickups:
Arrow.ddz - ddz is god. ddz is life. ddz is the first fantasy player to score 500 individual points. ddz has the highest weekly average. ddz should be drafted by every league. If by some chance you can still get your hands on him, please do. His stock should be dropping after this week when Arrow gets outclassed at TI4. However if most of those tournaments have surprise games that are currently unlisted, Arrow is going to dominate this week (again) in points. If you cant grab ddz pick up another arrow player and just lit him sit active. You might get lucky! Mineski.Jay - Jay is the only player on Mineski who gets to have a fantasy profile. He must be a pretty cool dude or something. He gets the nod for support player this week. He consistently preforms well as a high scoring support, and he will be playing some games for sure. Should be a safe pickup to ensure points this week. Scythe.poloson - Playing some SEA games this week in the VECL, Poloson is sure to top the charts as Scythe's mid player. We know he will be playing, so he is worth a pickup. PR.Chshrct - Another player who can be seen towards the top of the weekly average list is Power Ranger's Chshrct. All be it I do not watch many PR games, I do not see how they lose the GG League. He'll probably lop up a shit ton of points in at least 2 BO3's this week. xGame.Watafaka - Much like Chshrct, Watafaka is sure to win a few BO3's stomping his random euro opponents. Sure he will probably lose in the GG finals, but I don't even know if those games will take place in Week 7.
Week 6 Drops:
All your players who have no games and have shit changes in TI4 playoffs - Self explanitory, right? Most of us probably have a few players on our teams who are now useless as we get into TI4 playoff time. Time to dump the trash and start loading up on your DK, Newbee, IG, EG, and [A] players before it's too late. Drop your low profile, low scoring players this week in favor of those who are actually playing, or those who will be in TI4 round-robin. Nobody gets a specific highlight this week.
Highest Earning Player - Arrow.ddz - 144.1 Superstar Support - Arrow. Mozun - 112.9 Highest Earning Team - Arrow - 616.1 Most Games Played - IG ~17 Games First Player to 500 Individual Points - Arrow.ddz Player Leafeator most wants to engage in coitus with - Arrow.ddz ESL Weekend Points - 1203.7 Best ESL Performance - EG - 276.5 (IG - 227.2) (Na'Vi - 56.1) Total Week 6 Points - 3963.5 Average player score (active players only) - 38.9 Week 6 Average Total (sum of daily active player means) - 623 <-- Ideal total to beat. So how did you do in week 6 of fantasy? Were you able to pass average score? Was last week's article helpful in improving your game? What would you like to see from these articles in the future? Go ahead and comment below. I was personally disappointed with my week 6. I only left with an abysmal 535.3 points. Next week's points are looking to be even grimmer as the number of tournament games being played falls off a cliff. This will only make trading for good players who are actually playing games even more necessary this week. What about the prizes? Didn't I say there would be prizes? Why yes I did. 25 compendium points to anyone who bested my score in week 6, and can tweet me some screenshot proof. GLHF dominating your leagues in week 7.
