OpTic invited to cs_summit

OpTic Gaming have been invited to cs_summit, a $100,000 tournament that will be held in Los Angeles, California this April.

cs_summit is the first Counter-Strike event from Beyond The Summit, a tournament organizer that originated in DotA2. The Summit tournaments stand out from the rest with their laid-back approach, similar to TakeTV's Predator Masters events.


OpTic are the second team to be invited to cs_summit 

After revealing the event and the first invited team (SK) back in December, cs_summit have just announced the second team that will be present at the event: OpTic

William "RUSH" Wierzba and co. will be in LA fighting for a piece of the $100,000 prize pool from April 19-23. cs_summit will feature eight teams all together, with the remaining six teams yet unknown.

The Summit tournaments stand out from the rest with their laid-back approach Meaning...?
2017-02-07 19:41
the teams hang out, sometimes theyll pull in some pros to help cast takes place at the BTS house. no fans, just the pros chilling together
2017-02-07 20:53
Oh, sounds fun.
2017-02-07 20:56
Yea, their tournaments are amazing. Players cast, they sit on a couch u can see other players talking eating in the background. This is their awesome intro to the Summit 6 youtube.com/watch?v=fqAZ5chHx8g And a recap youtube.com/watch?v=fqAZ5chHx8g&t=27s Worth to watch

These are my fav type of events tbh, always so fun and laid back. For anyone that hasn't seen one, it's definitely worth the watch :)
2017-02-07 22:26
Basically copied from HomeStory Cup by TaKe in Starcraft 2 which has done these type of events for very long time with all pros sleeping/playing/casting/enjoying each other in a big house over couple of days.
