Flashpoint League that is inclined to onset latet this week have revealed an astonishing signing. The organisers have signed a former WWE scriptwriter to engage the fans through shenanigans and theatrics. During a podcast on Flashpoint’s Twitch channel among a couple of talent crew associates and the CEO of Team Envy, Christopher ‘MonteCristo’ Mykles revealed that the league will indulge players in a media training sessions with former WWE writer to develop personalities of professionals.
“We’re going to do some media training with the players, and we have a former WWE writer who’s going to be talking to the players and his job is to work with the players to develop their personalities in the same way that he literally worked with WWE wrestling,” said Christopher ‘MonteCristo’ Mykles
His co-participants Duncan “Thorin” Shields and Mike “hastr0” Rufail initially chuckled and laughed off though former later clarified and justified the writer’s induction. Even Thorin was uncertain at first however his concerns were addressed by the scriptwriter.
“I was actually concerned when I heard we were bringing in a real WWE writer because obviously WWE does go a bit too silly sometimes and they have those weird things for kids. However, one area that actually reassured me was that this guy said the best wrestling characters are the ones that are the person just turned up to eleven,” said the analyst.
“They are cranked up to be theatrical, but they still have some elements of who that person is. It’s not like when you make a fake wrestling character that’s really silly. He is, for example, not going to make a super-quiet person like Daps the swag baller, he’s not going to do that. It’s going to be appropriate to the character of the person as well,” Thorin further added.
MonteCristo then went ahead and talked about the different personality types of a player like Damian “daps” Steele and Epitacio “TACO” de Melo. This is the first time an esport league is bringing in a writer to enhance player’s character. It is a highly uncharted territory and the organisers might be risking it by setting a precedent. However, the stakes are not quite high even if the writer has minimal impact.
Trash-talks, personal grudges and storylines have a significant impact on enthusiastic fans while an average viewer might not be wooed by the superficial antics. Flashpoint League will kick off on March 13 with twelve teams and a whopping $1,000,000 prize pool.
