The first CS:GO event organized by Beyond the Summit will kick off in two days; therefore, we have prepared a viewer’s guide which contains information about the schedule, format, and broadcast crew.

Beyond the Summit's tournament is named cs_summit and will feature eight top teams who will fight for their share of the $150,000 prize pool in Los Angeles, California, USA.

The event will take place across four days from April 20-23 with each day starting at 18:30. A double-elimination, best-of-three format will be used throughout the event.

Daniel and James good one
2017-04-19 18:19
Why c9 cant take brax for fulltime roster? They anyway cant qulify for major
2017-04-19 18:28
Not sure if bait or not, but majors aren't the only place he is banned
2017-04-19 18:34
I think he is trying to say that c9 is so bad that they can't even qualify for majors so why not take swag? -l0ser
2017-04-19 19:47
Nice! Cool tournament! #RUNSKG

Time to sk win or retire
2017-04-19 23:05
Not agree. If they win ppl will say "no vp astralis faze navi etc" and if they loose "disband etc". Actually envyus is a solid team and optic or c9 can do some real damage so its not that easy. Will be fun hopefully swag will show a good performance like he do online.
2017-04-20 01:45
Let's go Gambit.
2017-04-19 23:25
So hyped for the upper and lower bracket format, hope it works well

I'm actually very hyped for this event, kinda bad times for EU, but hopefully will manage to watch most of the matches! Judging by the dota summits so far, it will be like no CSGO event before :)
