OG Esports are reportedly dropping French veteran Nathan ‘NBK-’ Schmitt from their CSGO team. The move would be the org’s first roster change since entering the esport.

  • NBK- is reportedly getting dropped from OG.
  • OG had early exits at BLAST Spring Groups & IEM Katowice.
  • This is OG’s first roster move since entering CSGO in late 2019.

OG Esports to kick NBK-

After an exciting debut in the CSGO space, OG Esports are making a change to their lineup and it’s NBK- who is going to get cut, first reported by ViKarM.

Within a year of OG’s existence in CSGO, the org managed to be a top 10 team but have struggled to make deep runs at events, let alone win some trophies.

If they drop NBK-, then OG will be looking to make improvements in its formula, which could signal that the club is ready to make a play on a big signing.
