With Fatih "gob b" Dayik and Alexander "alexRr" Frisch, BIG is getting two very experienced esports players from the CS:GO scene. Dayik was the in-game leader of the CS:GO team until August 2019 and brings with him 16 years of experience. AlexRr already played under the banner of ALTERNATE aTTaX and PENTA Sports at big tournaments like Dreamhack and ESL One Katowice.
The two are not alone though. Youngster and third man in the squad is AslaN, a former German Call of Duty 2 and Bataillon 1944 player, who started with VALORANT at a very early stage and is, therefore, one of the best current players. What he lacks in tournament experience, gob b and alexRr have double and triple. BIG relies on a balanced mixture of experience and young talent.
Two Still Missing
According to BIG, the remaining players in the squad are selected in a careful process so that the organization can put together a top-class squad. The names of the remaining players will be announced as soon as they are under contract in the coming days or weeks.
So far, no information has been released regarding BIG's upcoming participation in Valorant tournaments, but one thing is for sure: The team is already more than solid, probably one of the best in Germany.
