Bulgarian CS:GO player Tsvetelin ‘CeRq’ Dimitrov was perhaps never meant to be an international star, but his incredible talent has allowed him to not only prove everyone wrong but make Evil Geniuses one of the best teams in the world.
CeRq had a very limited domestic pro circuit to work with when he was making a name for himself in his home country of Bulgaria and after dominating CS:GO’s AWP, he quickly found himself outgrowing the scene and needing a new challenge.
When he got the call up to NRG, however, many where skeptical. Surely, such a young player with almost no experience at the international level couldn’t challenge the best that North America’s biggest organizations have to offer?
CeRq quickly proved the doubters wrong, however, and while it’s not always been smooth sailing, the power of CeRq’s AWP has been a driving factor in taking NRG, and now EG, to the very pinnacle of the game. This is the story of how a Bulgarian CS:GO prodigy shocked the world.
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.
