The German CS:GO team BIG has updated their roster: Fatih "gob b" Dayik and Denis "denis" Howell are no longer part of the roster, they will be replaced by Owen "smooya" Butterfield and Johannes "nex" Maget.
Denis had been playing for BIG since May, with them he placed 5-6th at Moche XL Esports 2019 and 9-12th at ESL One: Cologne 2019. Gob B, one of the co-founders and shareholders of the organization, will end his player career and transition to a managing role.
Both smooya and Nex played for BIG earlier. Nex is one of the founding members of the team, who was benched this May and since then has been inactive. Smooya played for BIG in the 2018-2019 season, and was benched this February.
The first tournament for the updated roster will be GG.Bet New York Invitational, where they will compete for a ticket to ESL One: New York 2019.
