FLASHPOINT closed qualifiers set to start

The closed qualifiers for the first season of FLASHPOINT will begin in just two days in all three regions following the conclusion of the action-packed open stages.

The European qualifier will feature a total of 32 teams, twice as many as the North American and the South American tournaments, with all three competitions featuring a 50/50 split between invited and qualified sides, as well as a double-elimination, best-of-three bracket.

Each closed qualifier will offer two spots at the LAN qualifier

The top two teams from each region will progress to the Global Qualifier, which will be held at the FACEIT studio in Los Angeles from March 3-5. This stage will determine the last two teams who will be entering FLASHPOINT, where they will be competing against the league's ten franchise partners, six of which have already been revealed.

Below you can find the 64 teams who will be taking part in the qualifiers:

Europe

North America

South America

Meanwhile, FLASHPOINT has announced that over a third of the qualifying stage's $100,000 prize pool has been allocated to the closed qualifiers. The Global Qualifier will have $64,000 up for grabs, with the winner claiming $20,000, while the runner-up will earn $12,000.

The prize distribution for the qualifiers is the following:

Closed qualifiers:

1. $3,750
2. $2,000
3. $1,500
4. $1,250
5-6. $1,000
7-8. $750

Global Qualifier:

1. $20,000
2. $12,000
3. $9,000
4. $7,000
5-6. $5,000
7-8. $3,000

tier 1 CS is back on the menu!!
2020-02-12 20:36
boring, only garbo teams
2020-02-12 20:37
true. but its also boring to only watch one league. sometimes its more fun to watch serie a than premier league, even if its slower "worse "and older players in general

not a single s tier team. looks like mdl 2.0, no one will watch this.
2020-02-12 20:38
it is online qualifier teams not invite ones, is there actually someone who expected there be s tier teams left for online qualifier? LOL. Still true though even with teams that are already in league I guess but not like this article is about that so your point makes very little sense xddd

i see most of the 6 invited teams at the same level to many teams at the closed qualifier apart from mibr. its defintily not a competition to the esl pro league.
2020-02-12 20:52
that is true for sure but weird to post that here cuz no one will have idea what u are talking about unless they know team list xdd

I will watch anything that involves BIG destroying other teams. But then again, BIG only can usually destroy good teams, against bad teams they always look like they are throwing or just PUGging around

it seems a lot of the bigger SA orgs are doing the same. In Brazil you pretty much are 1st or 2nd best CSGO team and relevant, or you get burried amongst all the other up and coming teams. I've seen quite a few do this in last 6 months or so

It makes sense because there isn't alot of good teams in the NA and they can really stand out if they play good cs in NA and make a name for themselves..

So many shitty teams. I just hope we see some bo3 in this qualifier, otherwise this could end up with some upsets because it's online and we get a shittier league.

I cheered for GL since they were Uruguay until they brought back Draken. Too tired of them continually making the team worse and worse and getting scores that just prove they aren't getting closer to their goals. The only one I still like in the team is RustY

Do you remember when GL had 100% on Mirage? That was about 3 weeks ago. Today they failed to get 10 rounds against Fruktskål, who is a Swedish t6 team with Jayzwalkerz

Yeah obviously a bad result, your comment just felt like it came from nowhere. But yeah, it feels like the third best swedish team is always cursed and never breaks out despite having pretty good players.
