Berlin, December 11th 2023 – We are pleased to announce the signing of a long-term contract extension with Karim “Krimbo” Moussa!
Krimbo’s journey with us began in early 2020 when he joined the BIG Academy, already recognized as one of the most promising prospects in the German esports scene. During his first stint with the Academy, he showcased his skills and dedication, exemplified with a championship title at the 15th season of the 99Liga.
In his pursuit of excellence, Krimbo embarked on his first professional contract with ALTERNATE aTTaX, where he honed his abilities by competing at an international level. His relentless determination and consistent growth did not go unnoticed by our coaching staff. Consequently, he returned to the organization at the beginning of 2022 as the captain of the new BIG Academy roster.
The rapid development of Krimbo’s talent, both as a player and as an individual, led to his promotion to the main team in March 2022. Today, Krimbo is hailed as the future of German Counter-Strike and stands among the most promising players on the international stage, most recently delivering an MVP tournament performance in our CCT Online Finals 5 title run. He holds a pivotal role in BIG’s strategic plans for the future of the Counter-Strike department. We are thrilled to extend with Krimbo in a long-term contract, ensuring his continued growth and success well into the future.

I couldn’t think of any other organization in the world where I can confide my loyalty and trust more than here in Berlin. I believe what BIG have planned for me and the team in the future. We will experience both good and difficult times together, but in the end, their support and appreciation will always come first. That’s why I’m proud to have extended my contract. I’m looking forward to grinding with the team as always and facing the next challenges that await us, and this announcement should not change that.
