Christopher “MonteCristo” Mykles has been made Commissioner of FLASHPOINT by the leagues parent company, B Site. Already one of the leagues premier talents, MonteCristo will now serve on the Board of Governors, maintain his role as Vice President of Brand of B site, and be a member of the broadcast team. He will play a vital role in forging the direction of the FLASHPOINT brand as it looks to grow.
“I am extremely excited to continue constructing the live tournament and content plans for both Flashpoint and B Site,” he said in a statement as part of the official announcement. “We aim to serve enthusiastic, adult fans with content brought to them by the most creative, fun, and expert voices from their favorite games. We are committed to not only providing top-tier tournament experiences, but also to roll out year-round studio shows for all major esports.”
“Monte is a unique voice in esports and the perfect connection point between the business of Flashpoint and the community of supporters we aim to build around it,” Ari Segal, CEO of Immortals Gaming Club and founding member of B Site said in the announcement. “There is no one better suited to collaborate with players, talent, and the community and ultimately deliver the very best, most forward leaning esports content, consistent with the mission and voice of Flashpoint and future B Site products.”
B Site’s first season of FLASHPOINT concluded back in April with MAD Lions defeating MIBR in the finals to take home the lion’s share of the $1 million dollar prize pool. There has yet to be any official word on the second season/phase.
B Site also acquired the Insight on Esports YouTube channels which will now be the home of Summoning Insight with more shows coming in the future.
