Each game will consist of a capture-the-flag-like competition, where teams will need to hold a zone for 45 seconds on a custom map. Registrations are now open and there’s two qualifying brackets. The top 16 teams on the leaderboard by July 4, will enter the final stages. Before the grand final however, a seeding tournament will take place on July 9. The top eight teams will then go to the National Final on July 10. There’ll be competition rewards too, as each team who makes it to the final receives a player’s pack. The winners from the National Final will receive products from AOC and Steel Series as well.
Where to watch
As with the previous Red Bull Flick competition, there will be a number of influencers who are on board to promote the tournament. Nikola “NiKo” Kovač joins as one of the Global Brand Ambassadors for the event. He’s one of the latest members on the G2 Esports CS:GO roster. Other pro players and streamers will be showcasing the new maps and game modes in the lead up to Red Bull Flick.
You can follow on social media for more information and there’s also an official Discord channel available. The channel has plenty of links to the new maps, with announcements on live Twitch channels to watch during the event.
