Counter-Strike writer Tim Masters takes a look at the teams lining up in the cs_summit 5 schedule, including OG CS:GO, who are set to play their first games at the event
AS 2019 draws to a close we have a few fairly interesting events to wrap our heads around before being weighed down with the weight of Christmas food, fatigue or just family arguments, and cs_Summit 5 is among those.
While the event has never been truly tier 1 due to an inability to compete with the biggest tournaments in terms of prize money, this is a tournament that has kickstarted a number of significant runs for teams that went on to dominate the scene.
This Summit is no different, with a collection of orgs that you’d currently call upcomers, but have great potential to make an impact on this and larger events in the future.
Chief among the names to looks out for is a legend from the world of Dota, but there is intrigue wherever you look, and we might also be seeing the last of the Polish VP era before they move on, if the rumours are to be believed.
The first thing to say if you’re looking to have a flutter is the things are not what they seem when it comes to the favourites. Loigically, you’d think Mousesports had a great chance here given their recent tournament victory at ESL Pro League Finals, but esports organisation struck and they didn’t get a visa for their Turkish star w0xic.
The team is playing with NaToSaphiX as a stand-in, and while he is a talented man with a lot to prove it’s unlikely they can match the level that saw them defeat Fnatic less than a week ago.
The really exciting name to look out for is the aforementioned legend of Dota, or OG Esports as they are known to you and I.
The amount of time it took the org to get this team together was a topic of discussion, but there was no real rush and it made sense to try and get things right after getting gazumped by Complexity on the poizon deal. If Mantuu is the right answer or not, only time will tell, but it’s fair to say the other four in this team have a lot of potential.
It might be a bit early to expect Valde, Aleksib and the rest to hit their stride though, leaving this field wide open. With only two teams due to be eliminated in the first stage, you’d probably still expect Mous and OG to get to the playoffs, but the likes of Furia and MIBR are dangerous sides, and if G2 don’t make it into the top four you’d have to question what the point of the team is at this stage.
Once we’re in the playoffs, anything can happen, but the chances of Virtus.pro getting even that far seem remote so we’ll say they are unlikely winners.
Any of the other five have an outside shot, but backing Mousesports and OG is risky when you consider the circumstances coming in. There is also the question of how CS players adapt to the unique, LAN-party atmosphere Summit create, so this should be a very interesting few days indeed, and could be the jump-start one of this teams needs to be a tier one contender in 2020.
