CS Summit Coverage Hub

A frequent producer of DOTA 2 and Super Smash Brothers “Summits,” the CS_Summit will be the first time the Los Angeles house will be open to CS:GO players for a prize pool of $150,000.  

Beyond The Summit

The Teams

Eight teams were invited to the CS_Summit from all over the world. While the North American region will boast the most teams (SK Gaming, Cloud9, OpTic Gaming, and Team Liquid) it is by no means a North American tournament. Some teams that have struggled to get into LANs by qualification (GODSENT and Team EnVyUs) will have a massive opportunity to prove themselves against struggling European teams (Gambit Esports and Ninjas in Pyjamas). Below you can read in depth profiles of each team attending the event and how they should perform.

The Format

The event will be extremely unique in Counter-Strike as it will feature a proper double elimination best of 3 bracket. One of the more popular tournament formats in esports such as Call of Duty and Halo, the double elimination best of 3 bracket allows a good team to get off to a slow start and still place well or win the event as they warm up. While the double elimination format is much fairer to all teams, it is very time consuming especially in games such as CS:GO or LoL where a full three maps could take three hours.


We will be covering the event differently than we would cover an event such as StarSeries where we put out daily Top Performer and Recaps for each round of the Swiss System (Groups) and quarters/semis, and Grand Finals.

Instead, we will cover each round with a recap and will release predictions for the Grand Finals only. You will be able to see all the relevant articles here as we will be updating this the entire weekend!
