Flashpoint has rushed, fragged, and are about to repeat. Ahead of their second iteration, MonteCristo, the tournament's Commissioner, sat down for an interview with HLTV and revealed some of their plans for Flashpoint 2. Wait, if MonteCristo's the Commissioner, does that make Thorin the Batman of Flashpoint?
In short, according to MonteCristo, Season 1 was a bit of a disappointment, with their content-heavy format not being able to come to fruition due to the coronavirus outbreak in the middle of their tournament. Fair enough.
He goes on to explain how, now that they've had time to adapt to the pandemic, they're back on track for a bunch of unique content. For example, they're working together with a freelance producer to, create a mini-series of documentaries about some of the participating players. A doc about ALEX? You already know we're not saying no to that.
But what about some of the teams in the league that, didn't quite live up to the hype? We didn't even know c0ntact had picked up a team until we read it in our own newsletter.
That is being adressed as well, according to MonteCristo, and the league wants to support the teams with expertise on content and PR. A team that could do with such a lesson is MIBR, but at least they sort of look like they'll have a roster.
The team has decided on the classic -LUCAS1 + LUCAS1 maneuver, sprinked with some vsm and leo_drk. For now they're just stand-ins so let's hope this lineup is a little more stable, and a little less "crash and burn as we take our own org down", than the last.
