The third cs_summit event is on its way according to Beyond the Summit, the organizer of the event. The event will kick off on November 1st and run through the 4th. cs_summit 3 ill see eight teams competing in a laid back environment for the $150,000 prize pool.
The format will resemble that of the previous cs_summit events with best-of-three double elimination playoffs leading into the eventual best-of-five grand finals. Whichever team makes it into the grand finals via the upper bracket will begin with a one-map advantage in the series.
NRG and BIG headline the event as the two highest ranked teams attending with compLexity bringing up the next spot at 14th in the HLTV rankings. The North American side of NRG went out in the semifinals of the recent StarSeries i-League Season 6 event to Vega Squadron 2-1 while BIG fell on the other side of the bracket to the eventual winners, ENCE. compLexity had a poor showing at the event going 0-3 with losses to BIG, Renegades, and Gambit.
Look across the board at the rest of the teams, this event is truly up in the air as to who could take it with both Danish teams showing potential alongside a climbing Ghost and experienced G2 roster.
