Our CS:GO main team showcased their prowess in the 18th season of the ESL Pro League by qualifying for the Finals after an intense group stage!
Competing in Group B, alongside opponents like Heroic, Rooster, Monte, MOUZ, MIBR, Evil Geniuses, and ENCE, the stage was set for an epic showdown in Malta. This event marked the second LAN appearance for our new CS:GO roster, and they arrived well-prepared following an intensive bootcamp.
The journey commenced with a thrilling opening match against Monte. Seeking to avenge a previous loss at the CCT North Europe S7 event, the Ukrainian side came out strong. However, with unwavering determination, our team fought back, displaying remarkable resilience and securing victory after a spectacular performance in the decisive map.
Advancing to the next round, we faced Heroic, known as one of the world’s strongest CS:GO teams. Despite being considered underdogs by many, our players rose to the occasion. The clash started off with an electrifying 25:23 victory on Ancient, one of the tournament’s standout moments. We emerged soon afterward triumphant with a 2:0 score, securing a well-deserved spot in the playoffs.

In the final group stage encounter, we went head-to-head with ENCE, another powerhouse in the CS:GO scene. The match carried significant implications, determining which team would advance directly to the quarter-finals and which would start in the second round of the playoffs. After an intense battle that saw both teams claim a map, ENCE managed to secure victory on Vertigo, despite a stellar performance by David “prosus” Hesse.
With playoffs secured, BIG will return to Malta later this month for the ESL Pro League Finals. Armed with newfound momentum from their impressive group stage performance, our team is poised for a deep run in the competition. In the meantime, fans can enjoy the behind-the-scenes vlog of our group stage journey on our YouTube channel.
