In 2017 we united the best & most prestigious German players to compete with the international elite.

League of Legends is undoubtedly the driving force in esports. Since the release in 2009, more than 100 million people fell in love with the famous MOBA title. The world’s best athletes in LoL became stars of the esports sphere, playing in front of an audience of millions. In March 2018 we joined forces with a young and tremendously talented LoL squad. Their passion and dedication for the game fit our ambitions perfectly and we are thrilled to see them on the battlefield under the BIG tag.
We are delighted to enter 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 one of the most popular online racing games, Trackmania has been part of the esports scene since more than 15 years. Our driver Dennis “Massa” Lotze started playing Trackmania casually in 2010. Today he is considered as one of the world’s fastest drivers on the planet. Massa is especially known for being one of the best but also riskiest drivers in Trackmania and not having missed a single grand final in any of the offline tournaments he competed in.
The famous FPS title Quake is part of the esport sphere since the early days of professional gaming. Marcel “k1llsen” Paul has been part of the professional competitive scene for more than 14 years. Since 2004 he has shown world-class performances on the biggest stages of esports in different versions of Quake and is considered as one of the best players in the world.
In our quest to unite the best Germany has to offer, bringing aboard Tobias “ShoWTimE” Sieber in our expansion to StarCraft was a nobrainer.
As a household name in StarCraft and one of the most successful German players, Tobias has already built himself quite a name in StarCraft. With a competitive history dating back to 2012, he has made numerous deep runs in WCS tournaments, most notably winning the 2016 WCS Spring Circuit Championship.
