The European team of OG has received the last invitation to cs_summit 5. It will be their first tournament since the line-up was formed, as the squad was officially presented on December 4.
The team list of the championship features six participants. Aside from OG, invites were sent to three rosters from Europe and two from South America. The organizers brought on board MIBR, FURIA Esports, mousesports, Virtus.pro, and G2 Esports, while the reigning champions of the series, Vitality, decided to skip the event.
However, it is Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt who can still defend the title, as nowadays he is playing for OG. The French player won the previous tournament of Beyond The Summit while being on the Vitality line-up. Back then, his former squad defeated Liquid with a 2-0 score.
