25-year-old French CS:GO player Nathan Jordan Schmitt, known as “NBK,” has been representing OG Esports for over three months. Before that, he was playing for Team Vitality. Also, he earned over $740.000 from the tournaments that he attended.

A few days ago, NBK has talked with the and revealed what happened before he left Team Vitality and cleared the air about his departure.

Interviewer neLendirekt asked:

“Your departure from Vitality surprised a lot of people, did you feel it coming? How was the atmosphere within the team in the months leading up to the Berlin major?”

NBK replied:

“Yes and no. About my departure, I suspected that once the call came in, given the atmosphere and the insistence on me picking up the phone.”

NBK continued:

“The background atmosphere was not good, the double lead system didn’t appeal to the others anymore despite the results. A big discussion around DH Masters Dallas questioned my captain status and the system without coming to a direct conclusion, leaving the group in an in-between situation.

It was a mistake for me to go back on the choices that brought us to top 2 and I was looking for a solution to satisfy the group but I think it was a lost cause and from that moment on I had to either simply play again and abandon all responsibility within the team, or my replacement was inevitable. This profound change of direction is for me similar to what has been done in several French teams after a clear success, so I was stubborn in wanting to keep in place a system that worked.”

He added:

“I was gradually pushed out of the captaincy and the team responsibilities (in and out of the game) during these 2-3 months by being under pressure from the organisation and the staff without any big discussion or ultimatum being put in front of me, so the atmosphere naturally deteriorated.

We could have left on “good” terms by getting to the bottom of the matter as we had different visions on the overall management and direction of a team. The form could have been better for them or me, but the substance would have been the same. This is the first time in my career where I was so uncomfortable in a group that I was planning to walk away on my own after BLAST Moscow because of the atmosphere and the direction the team was taking.”
