NBK- to play Flashpoint 3 with DBL PONEY

The 26-year-old has been given the green light to continue competing with the French team at the upcoming Regional Major Ranking tournament.

Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt has been cleared to play Flashpoint 3 with DBL PONEY after helping the team during the RMR event’s qualifying rounds, which he played as a stand-in.

The French player had initially stated that the 3 closed qualifier would mark the end of his time with DBL PONEY, the team for which he had started playing after being benched by OG, but he has now been given the green light by Valve, the Flashpoint organizers and OG to continue competing with the squad led by Alexandre "⁠bodyy⁠" Pianaro in the Valve-sanctioned event.

NBK- will continue standing in for DBL Poney at Flashpoint 3

DBL PONEY will start their Flashpoint 3 double-elimination bracket run on May 10 in a derby against Vitality, after which they will be matched with Astralis or OG depending on the outcome of the first round of play.

"It is with great joy that DBL PONEY is proud to announce that Nathan "NBK" Schmitt will be working extra hours with the team," says DBL PONEY's statement. "The DBL PONEY adventure continues with this French Counter-Strike legend for the next RMR tournament by Flashpoint.

"DBL PONEY has received confirmation that Nathan is eligible to play the competition with the team. We would like to thank NBK as well as OG, his agent, Valve, Flashpoint and all the people who helped this tale continue for some time. Thanks also to the community that has been so supportive over the past few weeks."

DBL PONEY will field the following team in Flashpoint 3:

France Alexandre "⁠bodyy⁠" Pianaro
France Lucas "⁠Lucky⁠" Chastang
France Aurélien "⁠afro⁠" Drapier
France Thomas "⁠Djoko⁠" Pavoni
France Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt (stand-in)

It might be true yes but NBK rather than throwing is probably getting boosted by the thought of facing OG so it's rather the opposite effect taking place in this case. xD NBK would love to smack OG team around.

In this specific case, Volvo gave the green light, so as OG accepted to let NBK play on this tournament. Fair from both parties, they got a good team spirit and I think they will soon find an org.
