CS has two sides to every game, the Terrorists and the Counter-Terrorists. Since both sides have distinct color schemes and styles to the characters, it’s easy for a player to pick apart friends and foes at a glance.
But the scheme was thrown off the rails with a glitch that enlists a character model of the opposite side onto their team – which is making for hilarious in-game situations.
A spy among the Counter-Terrorists
Reddit user ‘NuBRandsta’ showed the post-game lobby of their competitive match which showed which accolades the CT’s had earned throughout the game.
The only problem was amid the members of the National Gendarmerie Intervention Group (GIGN) there was a single Phoenix Connexion terrorist among their ranks.
Apparently the NuBRandsta’s teammate was giving a T model throughout their CT side, confusing “the hell out of everyone.”
While it’s unknown what caused the glitch to occur, the user suspects that it has something to do with the latest character model variety introduced with the release of Operation Shattered Web on October 18.
The player suspected that the new Operation Shattered Web update has something to do with the glitch.
Soon enough other players started to chime in explaining their experiences with the glitch, which has been showing up in more games.
But the problem seems to have appeared even before the launch of the latest operation.
Organizers have revealed the new schedule for Flashpoint Season 2, which will see teams competing for the largest CSGO prize pool of 2020 at $1 million.
The competition has been held completely online since March, due to the ongoing concern surrounding the global health situation, and that will continue for Season 2 as well.
This tournament venture between B Site Inc. and FACEIT kicks off its second season on November 10, 2020, with participating teams and the schedule released in the days leading up to the start.
So, let’s take a look at which teams are playing when, and how you can catch all the action.
Opening matches for Flashpoint Season 2.
The matches will all be streamed on FLASHPOINT’s Twitch channel, and with no in-person attendance and all games being held completely remotely, this will be the only way to watch the matches.
Duncan ‘Thorin’ Shields, who is participating in the leadership of FLASHPOINT’s creative direction, has predicted Group C will definitely be the one to watch, with OG (who are favored by many to win it all) and potential dark horses Cloud9 battling it out, along with Virtus.Pro in the mix as well, who finally seem to be getting in the swing of online play.
In Group B, BIG emerges as a clear favorite, but Thorin added “there will be heavy competition for the second-best team.” Finally, all eyes in Group A will be focused on taking down MAD Lions, who came out on top in first place following Flashpoint Season 1.
How Flashpoints Season 2 will work, from Group stages all the way to the Grand Final.
