Almost out of the blue, Red Bull announced a new online tournament for CS: GO. This event, called Red Bull Flick, is a bit different from what we are used to.
Instead of fighting 5v5 on maps that players know well, 2v2 battles are fought on five specially designed maps. To win, a team must hold the flag for 45 seconds, which is of course quite a challenge. Until that goal is achieved you can endlessly respawn and grab weapons.
The preliminary rounds are on November 29 and December 3. On both dates, the top four teams will advance to the final, where they will compete for the following prizes:
– AOC G2590FX monitor & SteelSeries Arctis 7 headset
– Steelseries Aerox 3 Wireless mouse & Steelseries QcK Prism 3XL mousepad
– Steelseries QcK Prism 3XL mousepad
