NBK Makes The Switch From CS:GO To Valorant

Yet another top-tier Counter-Strike player leaves for Riot’s title.

Today, OG announced Nathan “NBK-“ Schmitt’s switch to Valorant as the professional leaves the team for a new adventure in his career.

NBK, or NBKing as some people call him, has left with a glittering CS:GO career. Starting his professional journey as a 15-year-old for Team VeryGames, NBK never looked back and was one of the best players at the very top of the Counter-Strike scene.

The two-time major champion has played for popular teams like Team LDLC, Team EnVyUs, G2 Esports, Team Vitality and, of course, OG. He was the founding member of LDLC, a team that won DreamHack Winter 2014 under his reign. The 27-year-old found outstanding success with Team EnVyUs too, winning the DreamHack Cluj-Napoca 2015.

NBK dropped a brief video talking about his switch to Riot’s booming title Valorant. He explained how Counter-Strike gave him everything, but it is time for a change and that it is his moment to dominate on a different battlefield.

Valorant may not be the same as Counter-Strike but is serving as a great substitute platform for professional players. Valve has been active in bringing new updates to change the game for the better, but it will be interesting to see how Counter-Strike stands alongside Valorant in the future.
