Red Bull reveals first Global CS:GO Competition - Now Open For Entry
Red Bull and FACEIT have just announced Red Bull Flick, the online 2v2 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament with a twist. The Pro-Am event, now open for entry through RedBull.com/Flick, features multiple championships and qualifier types including National and Pan-National tournaments, which will take place on the FACEIT platform. Pairs of players will face off on a set of brand new custom Red Bull maps especially designed for a new game mode: Hold the Flag.
The Irish online national championship is looking for the top two players to go on and represent the Island. The winning team from tonight’s Irish National qualifier will be seeded directly into the EU Closed Qualifier this Saturday (30 May), with the chance to qualify for the Red Bull Flick EU Pro Invitational and an opportunity to play against some of pro CS:GO’s greatest players for a stake of a €20,000 prize pool.
The new game mode comes with five new custom maps with unique settings and game mechanics to keep the competition varied. Castle, Garden, Speedway, Matrix and Himalaya are all available to play now on Steam. Hold the Flag sees player duos defend the flag zone for 45 seconds to win each match.
This competition is not about takedowns, but instead, it’s about dominating. Red Bull Flick is Red Bull’s first international CS:GO tournament.
Over a dozen countries across the globe including Ireland, will be running their own national championships to select teams to proceed to the Red Bull Flick EU Pro Invitational. The best teams from the national and pan national tournaments will go on to compete in the EU Pro Invitational to take on the best pro players in the world.
