FLASHPOINT has had to step backwards a week into their event due to further concerns about the coronavirus. Previously touting itself as the one league still taking place on LAN, more local, state, and federal requests and restrictions have forced the league to move to an online format.
This has resulted in a temporary postponing the upcoming FLASHPOINT matches as they work to adjust the league to better fit the new structure.
“We are working diligently to ensure each team’s home site is suitable to maintain our standards for competitive integrity, and expect to communicate our updated schedule to the public as soon as we have clarity on the timeline of teams being set up and ready to compete remotely,” the league explained in their official announcement.
Although an awkward spot to be in, they’ve received mostly praise from the community for making this decision for the health and wellbeing of the staff, players, and talent involved in the league.
FLASHPOINT will be competing schedule-wise with ESL Pro League which had already made the decision to hold their eleventh season online and change the format from global to regional due to the outbreak.
As of now, there’s been no word on a date or time for FLASHPOINT to return.
