BIG expands into Valorant

Berlin, July 17th 2020 – We are delighted to announce that we are entering Valorant with a whole new line-up! Released this summer by Riot Games, Valorant is a rapidly growing and exciting FPS game taking the esports world by storm. Following our competitive success in CS:GO, we aim to build a competitive, strong line-up that represents the German scene in Valorant as well.


As the cornerstone and team captain of our line-up arrives an already familiar face, Fatih “gob b” Dayik. A legendary name in Counter-Strike, gob b will bring over his expertise and leadership to build and refine Valorant talent into a world-class team. Joining him on the roster as our sniper is Alexander “alexRr” Frisch, another household name in German esports. Finding a new home in Valorant, alexRr has already awed fans with his highlights and in-game prowess.


Statement Daniel Finkler, CEO
We have been working on our expansion into Valorant for many months now. Since the announcement last year, we saw great potential, not only for BIG but also for the esports industry in general. Therefore I am pleased that we can present our project to the public today. With Fatih “gob b” Dayik we have an absolute FPS legend in the team, and I am happy that he is leading our project. The goal is clear: As in other titles, we want to be the best German team in Valorant, and I am optimistic that we will achieve that. #GOBIG
Statement Fatih “gob b” Dayik, Team Captain
As you know, I have been playing a lot of Valorant lately. It surprised me how much I am enjoying it, so I decided to play it in a competitive fashion. I am very grateful to play with such talented players who trust me to be their captain. I know it will take some time, but you guys know me for my dedication to the game and my goals. I will do the same here with all my heart. I hope you guys will support us as you did my whole career. It’s not something that was planned in advance, it just feels right. Let’s also be #GEMEINSAM in Valorant!


The remaining three players of the roster are being selected by a careful process so that we will be able to field a top tier line-up right from the start. Keep a close eye on our social media feeds for more information about them in the coming weeks! We are excited to have you on-board for a whole new esports journey!
