FLASHPOINT is a new league that came onto the CS:GO scene in 2020. It ran as a direct competitor to the ESL Pro League and labeled itself as a league made for the players. This labeling also followed with the announcement of a very unique group draw process. The group draw process is one that uses a CSPPA-approved ranking system to seed teams from 1-12. Then, the top three seeded teams will be placed into groups A, B, and C. Captains of these three teams then get to select an unassigned team to place in their group. Then those selected teams get to pick the next team and so on.
Here is a video that will help explain the process:
