BIG Clan bench denis, brings in smooya and nex

In the aftermath of Fatih “gob b” Dayik’s retirement and a chain of unsatisfactory results, BIG Clan has made a roster change. Denis “denis” Howell will be moving back to the bench while Owen “smooya” Butterfield and Johannes “nex” Maget will return to the active line-up. This move comes in as the management was convinced that a radical change was needed due to recent sub-standard results.

Owen “smooya” Butterfield will return back to his previous role of an AWPer while Johannes “nex” Maget will be joining the team after he fully recovers from the surgery due to wrist pain which was operated back in December 2018. Until he recovers, Nikola “LEGIJA” Ninić will stand-in for BIG Clan and Alexander “kakafu” Szymanczyk has also stepped down from his position in coaching department.

Daniel Finkler, CEO: “2019 has been a challenging year so far, but every difficult situation comes with opportunities to make the right decisions. We went through many difficult and challenging periods and we always managed to overcome those times with hard work and dedication. But not everything went as expected this year and we had different expectations at the beginning of 2019. For this reason, we decided to make significant changes within our CS:GO division. The decisions we had to make were difficult and tough on a personal level. We are not a „cold“ organization, we believe in friendship, team spirit and all of us have a good heart – we are a family and share the same values. That is why I want to express my gratitude to all of the people who are affected by those decisions.”

Christian Lenz, CGO: “We took our time to evaluate the best possible roster for the second half of 2019, which will feature the return of the “UK hope” smooya and our founding member nex. Owen worked hard for his second chance, so did nex for his comeback. Of course, I’m sad about gob not being in the team anymore, he is a longtime friend of mine and was the reason of our success in the past, but we will see him soon in another important position in BIG. Let’s go BIG! #gemeinsam”

BIG Clan’s roster for the second half of 2019 is:

  • Johannes “tabseN” Wodarz
  • Tizian “tiziaN” Feldbusch
  • Ismailcan “XANTARES” Dörtkardeş
  • Owen “smooya” Butterfield
  • Johannes “nex” Maget (Recovering)
  • Nikola “LEGIJA” Ninić (Stand-in)
  • Denis “denis” Howell (Benched)

The organization is expected to shed light upon coach as the time comes.
