No. 14 GODSENT to Attend $100,000 CS_Summit Event in LA

  • -

CS_summit, the $100,000 event taking place in Los Angeles, California has added the seventh team to its lineup with No. 14 GODSENT being added to the list that includes the WWG CSGO Team Rankings No. 3, 8, 10, 12, 13, and 17, SK Gaming, OpTic Gaming, Cloud9, Gambit Esports, Team EnVyUs, and Team Liquid respectively. The event will kick off on April 19 and run through April 23. The tournament will be made up of eight teams, the remaining four set to either play through qualifiers or receive direct invites from the organiser.

GODSENT has gone 9-3 in maps since the third swap of players between the organisation and it's fellow Swedish team No. 11 Fnatic. Mostly playing against tier two and three teams in the ESEA Premier league, GODSENT did manage a best-of-three win over the Danish squad of Heroic, an up and coming team. GODSENT will not be expected to win but some wins over top 10 teams would help rebuild the faith of its fans.

Team Liquid is still ironing out the kinks since switch Spencer "Hiko" Martin out for Peter "stanislaw" Jargus last month. The team will need to make big strides if it wishes to have a positive result at an event that has drawn the attendance of top teams.

SK Gaming was announced as the first team back in December 2016 with Beyond The Summit being rather silent on the event since. SK gaming recently added Joao "felps" Vasconcellos to the roster after using a stand-in for the ECS season two finals and ELEAGUE Major. SK placed second at DreamHack Masters Las Vegas with its newest member before falling out in the group stage with a record of 2-3 at IEM Katowice.

OpTic Gaming has not stayed the same either, losing its in-game leader Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz who left the organization to join No. 19 Team Liquid. In his place, Spencer "Hiko" Martin will be playing as a stand-in and potential long-time fifth although no confirmations have been made. The team did not fare well at DreamHack Masters nor IEM Katowice.

Gambit has been making steady progress, making its way up the rankings after back-to-back quarterfinal appearances at the ELEAGUE Major and DreamHack Masters Las Vegas. Rumors are amidst of roster changes, however.

Cloud9 is still looking to reach the level it peaked at back at ESL Pro League season four finals in Brazil where it took home the event before returning home to lose the title of the best North American team to OpTic a short time later. The team exited in the group stage at DreamHack Masters Las Vegas at the hands of No. 7 Ninjas in Pyjamas and failed to make it out of groups at IEM Katowice.

EnVyUs is still coming together after the French roster shuffle which saw a lineup consisting of three new members, the most recent being Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom. The team is putting in work currently with an eye on being the better team between itself and the G2 super team.
