BeyondTheSummit, which announced CS SUMMIT 2 a few weeks ago is scheduled to commence on February 8th. It has now been reported that OpTiC has also chosen to withdraw from the event after mousesports.
The extremely popular event had earlier announced mousesports leaving the site even after being qualified. The mousesports management called it “due to personal reasons.”
