Flashpoint 3 update the rulebook to change OT's to MR3 $10k format
The organizers of the European RMR Flashpoint 3 tournament have changed the economics of overtimes according to the published information by HLTV.org journalist Danish "Nohte" Allana. The players will now receive $10,000 to purchase before the extra rounds begin, rather than the $16,000 used during the main portion of the championship.

Earlier Nohte pointed out the discrepancy between the rules of overtime at the current tournament with the common practice of events under the auspices of Valve. In particular, he pointed out that at cs_summit 8 and EPIC League CIS 2021, which also takes place in May, overtime rules provide $10 thousand for each player on the server.
It's worth noting that Flashpoint 3 representatives have not publicly introduced any changes to the terms of purchase in extra rounds.
The nearest games of the championship will run today, May 20, in the quarterfinals of the upper bracket.
