In 2017 we united the best & most prestigious German Counter-Strike players to compete with the world's leading esport organizations. What followed was a tremendous success story. Today our starting roster is among the best teams in the world and competes on the biggest stages of esports.
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. In March 2018 we joined forces with a young and tremendously talented LoL squad, who are representing BIG with all their passion and dedication for the game.
BIG Chroma is a new project focusing on scouting female and non-binary talent in League of Legends and aiding their development as professional athletes. Winning the Equal Esports Festival in Cologne this September, BIG Chroma has already a title under their belt while representing the BIG colours.
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 and since then is considered as one of the world’s best Quake players.
In our quest to unite the best Germany has to offer, we brought aboard Tobias “ShoWTimE” Sieber in our expansion to StarCraft.
As a household name in StarCraft, Tobias is one of the most successful German players.
Spearheading our fighting games division is Arja "Sephiblack" Gamoori! As the best German Tekken player and a top European contender, he is well known for his mastery of Miguel, and wholehearted approach to both competition and streaming.
