The three European teams currently ranked seventh, eighth, and twelfth in the world according to HLTV.org’s ranking will join qualified teams forZe and Virtus.pro as well as seven out of eight founding teams of Flashpoint: Gen.G, MAD Lions, c0ntact, Dignitas, Cloud9, Envy, and MIBR.

As previously announced, the currently teamless FunPlus Phoenix will sit out the upcoming second season, with its new General Manager, Petar “⁠peca⁠” Marković, stating earlier this month that the organization doesn’t want to make any rushed decisions when it comes to signing a new roster.

The tournament will be played online, with all teams residing in Europe, and will kick off with a GSL group stage on November 10-22. The playoffs, whose format is unknown, will follow after a week-long break on November 30-December 6.

Flashpoint 2 will be streamed from B Site’s studio in London, with Duncan “⁠Thorin⁠” Shields and Christopher “⁠MonteCristo⁠” Mykles as the leading figures of the on-air talent crew of the tournament’s broadcast, which promises to provide “best-in-class production, commentary, and storytelling.”

The tournament will bring together several teams who have gone through recent overhauls. Cloud9 will debut at the event with their completely new lineup led by Alex “⁠ALEX⁠” McMeekin, while MAD Lions, Gen.G, c0ntact, Dignitas, Envy, and MIBR are all set to showcase new additions, some of whom are still yet to be announced.

“We’re pumped to be back with Flashpoint 2 to further deliver on our promise for raw and unfiltered entertainment for our fans with the largest prize pools of 2020 with arguably the coolest trophy in all of sports,” MonteCristo, Commissioner of Flashpoint, said in a statement. “We’re eager to watch our storylines unfold including the emergence of BIG and OG this year, how the rebuilt rosters of some of our teams such as Cloud9 will compete and if MAD Lions can defend its title.”

The second season of Flashpoint boasts the following twelve teams:

Vitality take down BIG to set up clash against Astralis in DH Open Fall

The match between the fourth and seventh-best teams in the world did not provide as much excitement as was expected thanks to strong performances from all five Vitality members, with the Frenchmen securing a confident 2-0 win over BIG.

Vitality continued their winning streak on Dust2, now reaching five consecutive map wins, and shrugged off BIG on Inferno after a near-perfect start to the offensive side to claim the series. BIG will have a chance to redeem themselves in the lower bracket of DreamHack Open Fall, where they will face the winner of HeroicSprout, while Vitality go on to face Astralis for a grand final spot on Friday, and could prove to be a difficult challenge for the team currently ranked #1.

ZywOo had another stellar series and currently boasts a 1.46 event rating

With both teams having strong records on Dust2, 82% win rate for BIG and 73% for Vitality, the initial map was a toss-up on paper. After picking it, the German side did start 3-0 up on it as Terrorists, but Cédric “⁠RpK⁠” Guipouy set up his team for a good CT half with an opening double in the first rifle round. Vitality brought out the double AWP on Mathieu “⁠ZywOo⁠” Herbaut and Richard “⁠shox⁠” Papillon, and went up 7-4 before Nils “⁠k1to⁠” Gruhne‘s 4K with the Deagle allowed BIG to recover.

From an 8-7 half, Johannes “⁠tabseN⁠” Wodarz‘s team equalized things with a pistol win, but lost the following force to Vitality‘s B push. The French team then took the reins of the match, reaching 14 rounds after RpK‘s eco ace, and closed out the map 16-11.

ZywOo‘s pistol quad-kill foreshadowed a great map from the wunderkind on Inferno, as he was sitting on a 16K-1D scoreline with Vitality 9-2 ahead as Terrorists. BIG stopped the bleeding there, locking down an A play to start their comeback to a 9-6 half scoreline.

That good work was canceled out by Vitality in the second half, as Dan “⁠apEX⁠” Madesclaire‘s men looked comfortable marching towards match point, but were stopped at a bit earlier, at 14, thanks to BIG‘s eco victory and a 3v5 turnaround (14-9). The Germans managed to reach 11 rounds before Vitality tied it all up, with a shoxRpK B lockdown and ZywOo‘s double kill that made it 16-11.

Gen.G in talks with Liazz – Report

Avatar

Published

on

Gen.G have set their sights on Jay “⁠Liazz⁠” Tregillgas, according to a report from DBLTAP. The 23-year-old Australian would fill one of the two roster spots left vacant following the departures of Damian “⁠daps⁠” Steele and Sam “⁠s0m⁠” Oh to VALORANT.

Since joining 100 Thieves in November 2019, Liazz has averaged a 1.04 rating, notably playing a different role from his time on previous rosters due to an overlap in roles with Justin “⁠jks⁠” Savage, who is reportedly bound for Complexity.

Gen.G are looking to Liazz to fill one of their vacant roster spots

During his time with 100 Thieves and Renegades, Liazz helped the team achieve their best results at a Major, including a quarter-final run at IEM Katowice 2019 and a semi-final appearance at the following Major, hosted by StarLadder in Berlin. Last year, 100 Thieves also reached their first-ever Big Event grand final at IEM Beijing, an event at which Liazz averaged a 1.16 rating against the likes of ENCE, Vitality, and Astralis.

The reported move would leave Sean “⁠Gratisfaction⁠” Kaiwai and Aaron “⁠AZR⁠” Ward as the only remaining players from 100 Thieves without a new team. According to the report, Gen.G are also in discussions with another player to finalise their five-man lineup, a roster that they need to complete post-haste with the start of Flashpoint 2 drawing near on November 9.

Should the move come to fruition, Gen.G‘s roster would consist of:

Indonesia Hansel “⁠BnTeT⁠” Ferdinand
United States Timothy “⁠autimatic⁠” Ta
United States Kenneth “⁠koosta⁠” Suen
Australia Jay “⁠Liazz⁠” Tregillgas

Australia Chris “⁠Elmapuddy⁠” Tebbit (coach)
