Two-time CS: GO Champion Major Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt revealed today that he will be moving to VALORANT after spending the last four months on the OG bench.

The 27-year-old dedicated more than 10 years of his life to Counter-Strike. He began competing professionally in CS: Source in 2009. However, NBK- found great success in CS: GO, having played for numerous prestigious teams such as VeryGames, Titan, LDLC, Envy, G2, Vitality, and OG. He won several tournaments including the DreamHack Winter Major 2014 with LDLC and the DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca Major with Envy 2015.

"I've done everything from local LANs to winning Majors, I've gained positions in the ranks and I've sat on top of the world," said NBK- in their announcement video. “I experienced the great disappointments and the best tournament victories. Counter-Strike gave me everything and I dedicated my life to it. But memories are made to stay in the past. It's time for a change and I'm going to master [at VALORANT] ".

Given that NBK- is regarded as one of the brightest minds in CS: GO and has a large fan base that is not limited to just France, organizations are likely to knock on its door. It may take some time to adjust to the new FPS, but other former CS: GO pros have handled the transition well.

With this move, NBK- is one of the most successful CS: GO players to switch to VALORANT. Famous names like Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella and Spencer “Hiko” Martin did it in 2020.
