Phase 1 almost done. Flashpoint

Phase 1 of the CS:GO Flashpoint Season 1 is almost complete as six teams try to get a strong enough lead to earn a spot in the finals. After the Finals, the teams take a short break and then again undergo a series of battles in Phase 2. Matches for Phase 2 are set to begin on March 28 with Playoffs starting on April 10.

Flashpoint is the latest CS:GO tournament to come from this league. What makes this one unique is that this is the first esports league that’s managed by team organizations. A total of 12 teams are taking part in this tournament with eight being founding members and four coming in from a LAN Qualifier. The teams go through two rounds of competition before the top eight move to the Playoffs. The total prize pool is $1 million.

The points awarded for both Phase 1 and Phase 2 are:

  • 1st – 75 points
  • 2nd – 50 points
  • 3rd – 30 points
  • 4th – 15 points

That said, here are the results for the different groups of Phase 1.

Group A

The Finals have MAD Lions playing against HAVU Gaming, a rematch of their first game of the tournament. In the match, HAVU won against MAD 2-1 and worked its way to the Finals. MAD had to work from the Lower Bracket, winning against Copenhagen Flames 2-1 and c0ntact Gaming 2-0.

Group B

For this group the battle is Chaos EC against MIBR. Like in Group A, this is also working as a sort of rematch. In their initial match, Chaos beat MIBR 2-0. So far, Chaos has not been having any problem in its group. The same can be said about MIRB, who despite dropping to the Lower Bracket, managed to beat Team Envy 2-0 and Gen.G Esports 2-0.

Group C

In Group C, it’s Cloud9 taking on Orgless. Cloud9 beat FunPLus Phoenix 2-1 and managed to sweep Dignitas 2-0. Orgless had a bit of luck as they managed to win by default against FunPlus due to the latter having issues with their roster. However Orgless did manage to beat Dignitas 2-1.

The tournament was initially set to be in Stockholm, but the increasing concern due to the Coronavirus resulted in the competition moving to Los Angeles. Eventually the Phase part of the tournament was decided to be held purely online. So far there is no word if the Playoffs are going to be run online or offline, but its looking more and more like it'll return to online play.
