Flashpoint’s organizers have revealed a new online schedule for the CS:GO competition’s remaining matches for Phase 1, after announcing a transition to completely online play earlier in the week.

Due to the ongoing concern surrounding the virus outbreak, Flashpoint joined ESL in moving all future matches online after suspending offline play on Monday, March 16.

The new competitive Counter-Strike venture between B Site Inc. and FACEIT kicked off its first season on March 13, but fans only got to watch one weekend of the teams actually competing together in person.

Stream

The online matches will still be streamed on FLASHPOINT’s Twitch channel.

Participating teams

  • Cloud9 (Founding Member)
  • C0ntact Gaming (Founding Member)
  • Dignitas (Founding Member)
  • Gen.G (Founding Member)
  • MAD Lions (Founding Member)
  • MIBR (Founding Member)
  • Team Envy (Founding Member)
  • FunPlus Phoenix (Founding Member)
  • Orgless (LAN Qualifier)
  • Chaos Esports (LAN Qualifier)
  • HAVU (LAN Qualifier)
  • Copenhagen Flames (LAN Qualifier)

On March 11, FLASHPOINT announced the final entries to the 12 member list of participating teams, including reigning LoL world champions FunPlus Phoenix from China, Finnish organization HAVU, NA roster Chaos Esports Club, and Danish team Copenhagen Flames.

Duncan ‘Thorin’ Shields, who is participating in the leadership of FLASHPOINT’s creative direction, cheekily remarked that Flashpoint was now one of the “top two online CS:GO “league” in the world confirmed,” after the news they were moving to all-online format broke.

Groups

With the rescheduling, multiple matches between teams from the same group will no longer be held on the same day, but other than that, the groups should stay the same.

  • Group A (Ingame Feeders): Mad Lions, Copenhagen Flames (CPHF), c0ntact, HAVU
  • Group B (Assisted Living): FunPlus Phoenix, Cloud9, Orgless, Dignitas
  • Group C (Snakes and Ratters): Gen.G, Envy, MIBR, Chaos Esports Club

Format/schedule

FLASHPOINT Season 1 kicks off with three double-elimination GSL group stage brackets with four teams each. The winners of each group stage will be split into separate groups for the second stage, with all the other teams split between the three as well.

The new schedule for Phase 1 swaps the order of matches to better suit teams as they transition to playing from home or from the LA apartments provided by the tournament organizers.

Flashpoint has also confirmed that any previous dates for Phase 2 are currently being reviewed, and have yet to be confirmed as they work to finalize the schedule.

Operation Broken Fang is here, and that means heaps of new CS:GO content. If you want to make the most out of it though, and try and get that Diamond coin, you’ll want to complete the weekly missions. When better than to start in Week 1?

Christmas has come early for CS:GO players. Operation Broken Fang has dropped over a year after Operation Shattered Web started, and it’s brought a bevy of new content.

Seven new maps, nearly 100 skins, an entirely new game mode in Retakes, and even more. The best way to get your hands all over this though is through the battle pass and weekly missions.

The battle pass will set you back around $15 USD, but it’s worth it if you are going to grind the game. Plus, it’ll also give you access to the weekly missions, which are the best way to experience the new content.

Players will be taken to the new maps in Engage, Frostbite, and Ancient ⁠— dashing across multiple game modes. You’ll also be tasked with testing out the new retakes gamemode ⁠— a brilliant way to finesse your play before hitting the competitive queues.
