Flash Point eSports is an American esports organization that was given the spot previously owned by Denial eSports.

Aside from SMITE, the team also had teams in Counter Strike, League of Legends, and Paladins. The org also has players in Super Smash Brothers, Hearthstone, & Brawlhalla.

History

Season 3

Previously known as Denial eSports, the roster of Benj1, Homiefe, Hurriwind, Vetium, and Shadowq was having the best season that the organization have ever seen, scoring a 4th place finish in the Fall Placement Tournament and finishing 2nd in their group (4th overall) in the LAN Stage. The team had high hopes going into the Regional Championships, but before the event began, Denial said that they would cut ties with the SMITE team to focus on their HotS team. Thus, they gave the teams over to Flash Point eSports.

Flash Point faced Team Eager first in Super Regionals, with most predicting that Eager would take the set after five very close games. Eager had previously placed 5th in the placement stages, a disappointing and strange finish for the renowned powerhouse, but then dominated the LAN stage, ahead of 1st place placement team Luminosity Gaming. Going into this first set, Flash Point crushed Eager in the first game after Eager's disastrous  Hades pick was abused multiple times by Homiefe's  Ratatoskr and Benj1's  Ravana, playing off Eager's poor decision making and shotcalls. The remaining games were not as close, with Eager taking all 3 and qualifying for the SMITE World Championship 2017, spearheaded by TheBest's  Ra. After this loss, Flash Point looked to the Wild Card for their final chance to make it to Worlds.
