FLASHPOINT’s selection show has come to a close and with it we’ve been provided with the full groups for FLASHPOINT’s inaugural season.
Per the mechanisms used, MAD Lions, FunPlus Phoenix, and Gen.G were each placed into one of three groups to open things up based on their current ranking. From there, the representatives from each team; Lucas “Bubzkji” Andersen, Casper “cadiaN” Møller and Sam “s0m” Oh, picked their opponents for the first round.
From there the captains of the teams most recently brought into each group would pick another team to join their group. Once all groups were filled, the teams that were last to be selected were able to swap a team if they wanted to.
In the end, we ended up with a few swaps and the groups officialized.
- MAD Lions
- Copenhagen Flames
- FunPlus Phoenix
The match-ups for the first round of FLASHPOINT 1 are the following:
– MAD Lions vs. HAVU
– Copenhagen Flames vs. c0ntact
– FunPlus Phoenix vs. Cloud9
– Orgless vs. Dignitas
– Gen.G vs. Envy
– Chaos vs. MIBR
The event will be played from March 13 to April 13, however, recent changes due to the coronavirus outbreak have moved the entirety of the event to Los Angeles, California. Originally the playoffs were to be held in Stockholm.
Things will open up with two rounds of GSL groups with the top eight teams being seeded based on their placements. The playoffs will also be played as double-elimination.
