Flashpoint statement regarding NiP vs Anonymo Sparks Drama – Why?
On the 14th of May during the Flashpoint 3 tournament, NiP took on team Anonymo from Poland. In the third round of map 1, NiP claimed that they were having internet issues. The admin team of Flashpoint switched server locations but it was pointless as the issues were still there. Nothing else could be done on Flashpoint’s side and the match continued on the German server. According to the statement, NiP’s internet issues were solved by the third map, however after the series concluded, NiP contacted Flashpoint’s admins, stating that they still had issues in the third map.
The next day, Flashpoint accepted NiP’s request to replay the match, and it was scheduled for the 16th of May at 9PM. On their side, NiP had offered Anonymo to either play the full best of 3, or just the final map. In response to this, Anonymo released a statement of their own, mentioning that they think that NiP are pressuring FACEIT.
Many believe that NiP let that map 3 play out due to their confidence heading into the match despite their internet issues. Now that the match has concluded, NiP have requested a rematch.

The entire situation is a complete mess from top to bottom. Hopefully this gets resolved as soon as possible and the event can continue as planned.
