Top duel in the evening match
On the third day of Flashpoint 3 Heroic and Sprout, as well as G2 and FaZe will meet. While the Danes are clearly favored in the first duel, FaZe Clan will try to get back on track against G2. All in all, Flashpoint 3 is not only about 50,000 USD prize money, but also the first RMR points, which the teams have to collect with regard to the Major in order to qualify for it.
Game 1: Heroic vs. Sprout
Heroic is among the absolute world leaders in the new year and since the signings of refrezh and sjuush. The victory at the ESL Pro League, as well as the third place at DreamHack Masters Spring are the result of an outstanding record. Since the two new signings, Heroic has never lost two games in a row. Will this change against Sprout? The German team plays mostly in Tier-2 events, but managed to qualify for Flashpoint 3 via the closed Qualifier. A great success. All in all, between Heroic and Sprout, the tip is clearly on the Danish favorite. Anything else than a success of cadiaN and Co. would be a big surprise. The match will take place live at 6:00 p.m. (CET) on 12.05.2021.
Game 2: G2 vs. FaZe
The evening match will be an exciting duel between two top teams. While G2 is getting in better and better shape and currently shows consistently good performances, FaZe had big problems since the new signing of karrigan. The last head-to-head duel took place about two weeks ago and G2 won 2-1. Since FaZe Clan was eliminated early at DreamHack Masters Spring, the lineup had time to prepare for the first RMR event. After three losses in a row, the mixed team will try to get off to a good start at Flashpoint.
