32-year-old German in-game-leader Fatih “gob b” Dayik has decided to retire from professional Counter-Strike in order to ‘spend time with family and friends’. Faith is a brilliant in-game and his leadership has produced excellent results for BIG. Fatih has been a member of BIG Clan since around thousands days, claimed the organization. Further, he will continue under managerial position in the BIG Clan.

As many of you have already guessed, I will end my career as a player. First of all I want to thank all the fans and my team. Without you I would have never played this long. You were my motivation and inspiration.

I got a lot of messages that I shouldn’t stop playing. This is not the end and I will of course continue to be with BIG. I just felt it was time for me to take on a new role. The team and the management want to support me in every way and I appreciate that very much. Maybe some of you are sad but I can assure you and underline it again it is not an end. It is a new chapter and I hope for the support you have given me throughout my career.

I hope you understand that I want to have some time for my family and friends, before I take on my new role in BIG, which all these years came definitely too short. Of course I will always stand behind the team and hope for your support. We had a disappointing six months, but right now, we need you more than ever. We will do everything we can to improve ourselves, but we need you, to do it #gemeinsam. I hope you can understand and comprehend my decision. I just need a little break to prepare myself for the upcoming tasks.  I have some plans you can look forward to. I hope you understand my decision and I am sure, together we will once again have great and beautiful moments.

In love, your gobelante, said the German IGL.

Faith has a long-lasting career in CS which dates back to Counter-Strike 1.6. He has played for prominent organizations like mousesports, Team ALTERNATE, NRG Esports and lastly BIG Clan. His most recent success under BIG Clan includes reaching playoffs at two majors – FACEIT: London 2018 and PGL: Kraków 2017 while they had decent run at ELEAGUE: Boston 2018 and quite a poor outing at the recently held IEM: Katowice 2019. Apart from majors, their runners-up finish at ESL One: Cologne 2018 on their home soil was a praiseworthy performance.

“The respect I feel for Fatih “gob b” Dayik can not be put into words. He is one of the greatest and most intelligent personalities I`ve ever met. Surely, without any doubts, he helped to push BIG onto the biggest stages of esports. I feel thankful for all his efforts, the sweat & hard work he did put into our family. He is a true leader and a person I will always look up to,” said Daniel Finkler, CEO of BIG Clan.

“While we will surely miss him on the server, I`m looking forward to welcome Fatih in a leading position behind all our teams and players. This is a new era in our history. Thank you, Fatih,” he further added.

BIG Clan is set to update their roster in some time from now. BIG Clan’s present roster is:

  • Johannes “tabseN” Wodarz
  • Tizian “tiziaN” Feldbusch
  • Ismailcan “XANTARES” Dörtkardeş
  • Denis “denis” Howell
