Monte is commissioner, it is safe to say he runs the league.
For your another reply. I dont care Thorin is the harshest to those teams. My point is, he only talks about ESL, shit on them for almost everything, while being quiet about every fuckup Flashpoint does. In January/February he tweeted (now probably deleted) he will criticize Flashpoint as much as ESL if they deserve it. SInce he have not any bad word about Flashpoint, even if he had enough opportunities.
Problems with open qualifier? - not a single word
Promises no timer between matches, broadcast will be full of content. They did not do it even for grand final - not a single word
No top10 teams, while Dan Fiden openly talks about wanting at least 2 or 3 of them - talk about it, but not in a bad way/criticism
Sound issues at first 3 days - not a single word
FPX fiasco - tried to shift a blame towards Astralis, instead of criticizing FPX
Not getting all 10 franchised teams - not a single word
Currently not a single franchised team is in top25 - not a single word, insted of it he brags about invited and qualified teams
Bragging about viewership higher than EPL, while there was live match on Flashpoint, while EPL was on break
When found out about viewbotting (embedding on Faceit site) - tried to shift criticism towards ESL, while they stopped it, Flashpoint keep with viewbotting and still bragging about numbers. There is difference between 3k (EPL) and 36K (Flashpoint). Same as Monte.
Conflict of interest in their teams (RMR related) - one tweet, when he said he will instruct teams, so this wont happen, nothing changed after that.
FPX has no team - praises them for their GM
Thats just only a few examples I remember. If he put his energy and time into Flashpoint, instead of talking about EPL, maybe they would get better teams.
Edit: In another post, you said want to make video about Flashpoint. Here are some examples why I dont like it. It is not just Thorin or Monte, you can also here what I dont like about it generally. Another reason why I dont like watching Flashpoint is Potter. She is below average analyst, she does basic analysis, keep repeating basic phrases, talks about things everyone knows. Yet she is praised by many. Especially her prediction: Team X wins, because their Inferno is nuts, while having 30% winrate on it is perfect example of why I think she should not be there.
Edit 2: Also I dislike, they talk about creating content, new features, etc. Casual fan doesnt care about it. I would not call myself casual, but I dont care about their content, while it is their main selling point. To make it clear, I like their effort, I dont like their constant talking about it.
