MAD Lions overcome MIBR to win Flashpoint: Relive the top five moments

MAD Lions have beaten MIBR 2-1 in the grand final of Flashpoint Season 1, taking home $500,000 in cash prizes.
MAD Lions overcome MIBR to win Flashpoint: Relive the top five moments

The grand final kicked off on Mirage, which was MAD Lions’ map pick. Despite starting both halves with good streaks, MAD Lions crumbled on the CT-side and lost the first map 16-13.

The Danish team then hit back by winning Inferno with the same scoreline. MIBR dominated the CT-side on Train and led 12-3 at halftime but MAD Lions came back in the second half, taking the 16-13 map victory.

The two teams had previously met in the upper bracket final of the competition, with MIBR coming out on top. With this 2-1 grand final victory, MAD Lions got their revenge and won the first-ever edition of Flashpoint.


The top five moments from MAD Lions victory over MIBR

Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo had a good start to the final as he picked up a collateral in the eighth round, killing two enemies with a single AWP bullet.



Lucas “Bubzkji” Andersen responded two rounds later with a 1vs2 clutch on the B-site.



A 4vs1 advantage wasn’t enough for MIBR to win this round on Train as none of their players were close to the bomb and Fredrik “roeJ” Jørgensen defused it inside a smoke.



Then, Rasmus “sjuush” Beck got another ridiculous defuse for his team.



You guessed it right, there was another defuse that defied the odds, helping MAD Lions come back.




Asger “AcilioN” Larsen, who recently joined MAD Lions to replace Nicolai 'HUNDEN' Petersen as the team’s in-game leader, rose to the occasion on the last map and led the comeback from 12-1.

The 23-year-old Danish player posted a 30:18 KD on Train and had a 99.8 ADR (average damage per round). Not only that, he passed his first big test as MAD Lions’ new in-game leader despite difficult circumstances.


The first Flashpoint season offered $1 million in cash prizes, with most of the earnings going to the top two teams.
