Teams and Dates Announced for CS Summit 3

​Beyond the Summit revealed the teams and dates Tuesday for CS Summit 3, a $150,000 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament that will take place Nov. 1-4.

The following eight ​CS:GO teams will compete at the Summit:

- G2 Esports

- BIG

- NRG

- GhostGaming

- Heroic

- compLexity Gaming

- OpTic Gaming

- Team Kinguin


As with the previous two events, CS Summit 3 will take place at Beyond the Summit's Summit House. The ​previous Summit, which took place in February, was won by Cloud9 after a hard fought series against Team Liquid. Cloud9 won the lion's share of the $150,000 prize pool. The prize pool was the same for both of the previous Summits, but Beyond the Summit has yet to release the specifics of the coming event.

The event, which was pushed back after initially being scheduled for this month, will most likely follow the format of double elimination best of three matches for all the playoffs, and a best of five series for the grand final.
