CS:GO's French veteran NBK switches to Valorant

It’s not the first time, nor will it likely be the last time that a CS:GO pro transitions to Valorant, with a prime example being Spencer “Hiko” Martin moving to Valorant last year.

The 27-year old, after being benched from OG in February, made his final appearance in Flashpoint 3 with DBL PONEY, the team he stood in for.

NBK- climbed through the ranks of the CS:Source scene before joining VeryGames in 2012 to play CS:GO, where he developed a bitter rivalry with NIP in the early days of the game. Over the years, he has won a number of international titles, including the DreamHack Winter 2014 and DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca 2015 Majors with LDLC and Envy, respectively.

NBK- has accomplished everything in the CS:GO esports world, from winning several Majors (a feat only a few active players can claim) to being named one of HLTV’s top 20 players three times.

After differing degrees of success with numerous different French teams, NBK- embraced a change of scenery in 2019 when he joined OG’s first-ever CS:GO lineup, which included players from five different countries. After a dismal start to the 2021 season, he was put to the bench after helping the squad to runners-up finishes at IEM New York 2020 Europe and Flashpoint 2.

As a member of the Counter-Strike Professional Players’ Association (CSPPA) board, NBK- has pushed for players’ rights. Following the news, he is anticipated to resign from the council, leaving Chris “chrisJ” de Jong as the only remaining original member.

NBK- has accomplished everything in the CS:GO esports world, from winning several Majors (a feat only a few active players can claim) to being named one of HLTV's top 20 players three times.

“I’ve done it all, from LANs to winning Majors, climbed the ranks, and sat on top of the world,” says the player “NBK- remarked. “I’ve experienced both the greatest disappointments and the greatest tournament victories.

“Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has given me everything, and I have dedicated my life to it. However, memories are created to remain in the past. It’s past time to make a difference.”

NBK-  has not officially announced the team he will be playing for in Valorant.
