Flashpoint 2 talent lineup revealed

Ten members will guide viewers through the broadcast over the next month.

Flashpoint has announced its broadcast talent lineup for Flashpoint 2, which is slated to run from November 10 - December 6 with a staggering $1,000,000 on offer.

Heading up the action on the desk will be Flashpoint's very own Duncan "⁠Thorin⁠" Shields and Christopher "⁠MonteCristo⁠" Mykles, with the duo being joined by a trio of talent from Flashpoint 1 in the form of Alex "⁠Mauisnake⁠" Ellenberg, Christine "⁠potter⁠" Chi, and FACEIT's Freya Spiers, who will take up hosting duties alongside MonteCristo. Rounding out the desk will be Allan Hender, who will make his first appearance as part of a Flashpoint broadcast.

James Bardolph will partner up with hawka

Anders "⁠Anders⁠" Blume and Auguste "⁠Semmler⁠" Massonnat will reprise their casting roles, while James "⁠BARDOLPH⁠" Bardolph will be left without Daniel "⁠ddk⁠" Kapadia, and instead be joined by Alex "hawka" Hawkins.

The complete talent lineup for Flashpoint 2 looks as follows:

It's getting better though. I'm sure Flashpoint 3 will have even better teams. I really hope that Flashpoint succeeds, 'cause I'm tired of the ESL monopoly. Blast Premier is already much better and we need better tournaments.

I mean, C9 alr did it the right way and upgraded huge time, so future will tell if the other teams ll do it too. also, some other teams did some wanted/unwanted moves, like mibr, geng , etc. .. that ll most likely tank their performance a bit due to the lack of prac, but im pos that with fnc, big etc, the competition ll increase and fp3 will be even better with better teams/rosters of the current teams and maybe even a LAN enviroment like it should be.

Oh god. Is this the end of ddk and Bardolph? They are simply the best commentator dual. I know ddk is focusing more on Valorant and his show but I thought he would make the time to commentate CSGO with James. Man, that is just so sad.

hawka, man, since you are often on the broadcast now, pls hit some gym and eat well, you look like a 14 y.o. after a hard day at school. please, don't take it as an insult, I like your csgo analysis, but recording videos in bedroom and being on the international broadcast watched by thousands of people is very different level. please, "man up" physically.
