Flashpoint Season 1Mar 13, 2020Apr 19, 2020
Flashpoint is a new concept created in Counter-Strike this year and is founded by ten teams.
By letting the teams be a big part in the tournament, it gives room for new and unique things possible during the tournament. “What’s unique about this open ecosystem is that it allows for creativity,” said Kent Wakeford, co-founder and vice-chairman of Gen.G, about the Flashpoint concept.
Eight teams are permanently invited to play in the tournament while four extra teams can participate through qualifiers.
The prize pool is an astounding $1,000,000 USD, and the 12 teams will compete for this together with the Flashpoint trophy.
Besides the prize pool, the 8 permanently invited teams will also receive points for the BLAST Premier tournaments.
