Player Hater group stage results, re-draft for ESL One Cologne playoffs

Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

The group stage for ESL One Cologne player hater draft has ended. In the end, Thomas Matthews and Jonathan Nickson ended up winning because the combo of aizy/olof or olof/dennis were too strong. Overall, the most picked players who ruined everyone were GuardiaN and EliGE. aizy and shox were the only players to go positive (and to get positive you had to have more deaths than kills and assists) in the group stage. I will say shox is misrepresented here as he had low frags, but they were all of high impact. Sadly I can’t say the same for aizy.

Random fact: Messiosso got himself DQ’d because he chose more than 2 players from the same team.

I will now start the Player Haters Draft for Playoffs which you can play here. Only change will be to make it 7K as I felt the picks were too similar to each other in the first round. You can follow along here. To participate, leave a comment on this story, tweet @slingshotesport or send an email with your picks to by 3 a.m. ET Friday.
