BIG BEAT KINGUIN IN BUCHAREST

After beating Kinguin 16-8 on Train, BIG have secured their first win at the Europe Minor.

With a quad-kill from Johannes “tabseN” Wodarz in the pistol round, BIG started out their first match in Bucharest with a well-succeeded round as Terrorists. After winning the following two, and despite losing other two, the German squad easily got to an 8-2 lead.

Kinguin were then able to answer for three rounds, in which a triple-kill from Mikołaj “mouz” Karolewski and Grzegorz “SZPERO” Dziamałek in the 12th and 13th round, respectively, helped the Polish team close the gap at 5-8. Then, before the end of the first half, both squads traded rounds.

Despite winning the second pistol round, Bartosz “Hyper” Wolny and co. failed to secure the anti-eco. From that point, BIG won three more before facing Kinguin’s buy round, which Michał “MICHU” Müller almost pulled off with a 1v2 clutch.

As they kept breaking their adversaries’ economy, BIG only lost one more round before finishing off Train with a 16-8 scoreline.
