Can NBK Work His CSGO Magic AGAIN in OG?

In 2019, Nathan ‘NBK’ Schmitt had the world in his hands. As the in-game leader of Team Vitality’s Counter-Strike roster, he was earning championship titles and prize money in spades – everything was going right – but then he found himself back at the drawing board. 

This wasn’t Schmitt’s first bite of the cherry though. In French Counter-Strike’s heyday, EnvyUs, G2 Esports, and VeryGames all won global championships and NBK was there for every single one of them.

When he signed for Team Vitality in 2018, he was already on his way to the Hall of Fame and his time there just cemented that as, alongside ZywoO and some of the most revered named in Counter-Strike history, they won multiple events and stood out as one of the world’s best teams.

Yet, he’s once again back at the drawing board with OG’s exciting CSGO project – leading another band of talented players and trying to make a run up the world rankings.

This is the story of NBK-, the French CS:GO all-star who can’t stop starting over.


How arT’s aggression is leading FURIA’s CSGO charge to site

Andrei ‘arT’ Piovezan has led FURIA to the top of NA Counter-Strike thanks not only to his calling but also his ultra-aggressive playstyle. 

Dexerto explores the Brazilian’s signature aggression and how it has defined him as the most offensive player in CSGO history. 

His playstyle slowly leaked into his strategies, making FURIA one of the most aggressive teams in the world: allowing them to become the most successful T-side team over the last few months. 

This was clear during ESL Pro League 11 NA, where arT’s aggressive pushes and misdirection on Inferno led the team to a dominant win against the best NA had to offer. All this while delivering some of the most entertaining CS ever. 

The importance of his dual-role as a IGL and Entry-Fragger is not lost, allowing him to quickly adapt his calling after going first into bombsites. 

ArT has led FURIA to become true contenders on the world stage but now the difficult part begins: keeping ahead of the curve and keep the elements of surprise on his side.
