Nathan Schmitt, in a statement on his own Twitter account, stated that he will start over his new journey. While many fans expected the player to continue his CS:GO career with another club, the French in the video bid their goodbyes to the game. Following this farewell, the player will continue his career in VALORANT, a game created by Riot Games that has gained a lot of traction.
“I’ve experienced everything from tiny LANs to Major championships, developed my talents, and sat atop the globe. I’ve had my fair share of failures and successes in tournaments. 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 time for a change, and I’ve arrived to dominate [in VALORANT]”, according to NBK- in a video, he shared on Twitter.

He also informed on Twitter his fans to clear any doubts they may have regarding his decision.
Since there are a lot of questions surrounding my move I’ll make a YouTube explanation video that will come in the next days – what are some questions you’d like to be answered ?

Many CS: GO legends have previously declared their departure from the game and move to VALORANT. Players and fans are reacting to the CS: GO’s departure of key players to VALORANT with this development. In the context of the CS: GO esports industry, this is a major source of concern for Valve, the developers and publishers of the game. Not only biggies of CS: GO esports have moved on but famous content creators like Shroud also mentioned that CS: GO is dead now.
Nathan Schmitt, who is 27 years old, was the last player to wear the OG team’s shirt. After battling for 12 years in the professional arena, the athlete was able to win two major championships during that time. The player was named the most valuable player of the competition four times, despite having a happy finish in several big tournaments other than the Major championship. It is unclear which team will wear the shirt of the player who has decided to move to VALORANT.
