Red Bull Announce 2v2 King of the Hill Tournament: Red Bull Flick

Matches will be broadcast for players and fans to enjoy on November 10

Counter-Strike fans can register today for their chance to dominate the region and win two custom built PC’s with a value of $3,000.

Red Bull Flick will feature a two-versus-two game mode known as ‘Hold the Flag’, which rewards both mechanical and strategic prowess from players.

In order to win rounds, teams must capture and defend designated points for 45 seconds. The game mode features five custom maps unique to the mode, each with its own settings and mechanics that players must adapt to.

“The introduction of a brand new game mode to CS:GO is an exciting challenge for the community. With new rules, new objectives and importantly new maps, it creates an even playing field for amateurs and pros,” said Tom “Apocdud” Henry.

“Different game modes are not all that common in Counter-Strike so it’s interesting to see something that is new but also fleshed out and ready for people to get behind. With bomb defusal as the focus of CS, this new mode appeals to seasoned players who want a fresh experience but is simple enough for new players to pick up quickly.”

Supported by ESL Australia, eight online qualifiers held between November 16-19 and 23-26 will determine which duos have what it takes for a spot in the Grand Finals on Nov. 29.

“With the region lacking grassroots support, events like this bring the all important interest and passion into a game. With Valorant kicking around, this is a perfect opportunity to bring more eyes and new players into the fray”

Tom “Apocdud” Henry

Prior to the qualifiers, Hold the Flag matches will be showcased live through the official Red Bull Twitch channel. These matches will feature CS:GO professionals and gaming personalities such as Chief’s Apocdud alongside AFL Legend Mitch Robinson and television alumni Stephanie “Hex” Bendixsen.


These matches will be broadcast for players and fans to enjoy on November 10 at 7pm AEDT, via twitch.com/RedBullChannelTwo.

Registration is available now for duos at redbull.com/flickau.

Ash 'Shhlee' Whyte is all about Counter-Strike and its stories. While he did look at playing League of Legends at some point, he soon opted to specailise in CS after being told Shyvana top was apparently not 'viable' and that Bronze was not a 'good' rank.
