A press release revealed today that Christopher “MonteCristo” Mykles will be leaving Cloud9 to join Flashpoint and B Site. Leaving his role as a Cloud9 content creator, his esports experience will prove valuable at Flashpoint. MonteCristo will be the commissioner of Flashpoint and vice president of brand at B Site.
Holding over 15 years of experience in esports and coaching multiple professional teams, MonteCristo will definitely grow the brand. Consistently providing useful insight into company changes developed his sense of brand initiative. Now that he’s B Site’ vice president of brand, he leads content direction for the company. Especially because B Site plans to expand into other esports titles, the right branding is crucial.
“Monte is a unique voice in esports and the perfect connection point between the business of Flashpoint and the community of supporters we aim to build around it,” said Ari Segal, CEO of Immortals Gaming Club and founding member of B Site. “There is no one better suited to collaborate with players, talent, and the community and ultimately deliver the very best, most forward-leaning esports content, consistent with the mission and voice of Flashpoint and future B Site products.”
B Site and Flashpoint CS:GO
Launched just months ago, B Site and Flashpoint made esports news everywhere. B Site is the first esports media company run by teams. Specifically, B Site comprises of Cloud9, c0ntact Gaming, Dignitas, Envy Gaming, FunPlus Phoenix, Gen.G, MIBR, and OverActive Media, all in partnership with FACEIT. Their major accomplishment was creating Flashpoint, a whole new league for CS:GO competition.
Acquiring MonteCristo came just days after Flashpoint announced Esports Charts as their analytics partner. These major moves in the esports industry put Flashpoint and B Site in a strong position.
