Why BIG roster doesn't work?

Belarus vrub0n 
I don't understand that. At the start of the year i was sure they would be top 5-7 team. And Xantares top 20 for sure.

Free tabsen. We have to admit that the german scene has only one t2 team (at best) which is BIG, Sprout is t3 at the moment and everything else is not worth mentioning since aTTaX, expert, Unicorns are not even delivering in their t3-t4 online tournaments.

Two bots in Tizian and Nex. Braindead plays and bad overall. Gob B ok fragger and IGL. Tabsen good rifler but not so good as an awper. Xantares hit and miss because of language and coms problems

You say that but the team isnt improving. They have structure, they have well performing star players, yes they need to improve the comms but that alone will not make them a top 5 team. A player on sprout could easily be taught to do tizian roles while also maintaining a higher level mechanically. Nex also needs to go imo

#129
 | 
Germany Wurstkreatur 
I think there is a kind of role issue at BIG, they do not use Nex' aim , which is actually really decent. IMO it is that gobb's system is not working during matches (at the major, against HR, even online) and then the whole team collapses. with tizian and gobb there is not enough firepower to kind of outaim the opponent in these situations where the standard setup and tactic isnt working. Imo tizian is decent enough..gob aswell but the team falls apart to often, because of getting outaimed and outtimed - with smooya there is another xfactor which can push BIG trough these particular struggles during this game.
2019-04-26 22:22

United States Jammin800k 
They use nex's aim plenty. Hes gets to go behind xantares and has support from two great support players, he just consistently underperforms if you replace him with a player like syrson or faven the roles would work much better. Have syrson AWP, tabsen go behind xantares with support from tizian and gob b and then you have 3 high fragging players. And if that still doesnt work get rid of tizian for the other player.
2019-04-27 02:49

because xantares doesnt speak that good english, nex below decent fragger, tizian kinda decent, GOB he isnt that well of a fragger, sometimes he have good matches, but only "SOMETIMES", TABSEN mehh he is decent too, no one in team who pumps them. SMOOYA was right choice for them, because with smooya, tabsen didnt had that much pressure, GOB was also feeling it and yeah NEX was also decent, and SMOOYA was pumping everyone, AND there old lineup with XANTARES and SMOOYA could have been top 5-7 but now they are kinda top 20
2019-04-23 21:52
TL ; DR = current BIG`s lineup sucks
2019-04-23 21:52
Tabsen is insane
2019-04-25 12:12
he is CT player, on CT side he gets like 20-25 kills and on T side he sucks
2019-04-25 12:17
as an awper i agree, as rifler hes insane on both sides
2019-04-25 13:32
yeah thats where difference is, he cant get team the opening kill and they lose
2019-04-25 13:37
xantares too amateur and they lost the god that is smooooooyaaaaaaaaaaaaaa on top of that nex has 1 good game for 100 shitters and tizian is in the exact same boat
2019-04-23 21:55
problem is not Xantares others have aim issue
2019-04-25 23:19

2019-04-23 21:59
Dude xantares can’t play to his best because he doesn’t speak anything else then Turkish that is so unprofessional he didn’t learn it in like 6 months how is that possible
2019-04-25 12:21
Yeah it' also a big problem but SS xanti and BİG xanti are so different idk.He waits one angel like a minute than die without pulling a trigger. That's not how xanti should play. 6 months in foreign country is a lot of time for learning or adapting to any languages. I think he is not learning english in course or in proffesional way, that's why it takes so long

Whatever you think of Smooya, bringing Nex back was a dumb move. He has been consistently mediocre for years now. I don't know why they thought a little break would change that. Or perhaps they thought XANTARES would carry so hard that they could play with their friend instead of being professional and picking a better player.
2019-04-23 22:04
Nex has wrist problems that was the reason they benched him at first otherways he would have stayed the whole time
2019-04-25 12:22

Still looks as mediocre as ever after taking a break, so either the wirst problem isn't fixed or it was a lame excuse. Do you think FC Barcelona would keep playing someone with a bad ankle and then use that player's injury as an excuse when they play poorly for an entire year? Of course not.
2019-04-25 23:35
No wasn’t meant as an excuse for his inconsistency Just looked like you didn’t know that and third he just took a break for fun

Because if you actually took the time to assess objectively youd see the structure and approach that all his teams had were top tier. Analysts literally said that there were only 3 teams that move around a map at an elite level when BiG were in from. Those teams were Astralis Liquid and BiG. Not to mention how exceptional they were with utility, gob b was actually the best utility player last year 2nd in flashes and quite high up in nade damage. The issue on the team is skill, not leadership or structure, like do you actually think that rn Zeus is a better IGL than gob b? You probably do because you look at wins and losses and not what's actually winning and losing the game. I guarantee if you plug s1 and electronic in BiG today theyd be instantly top 5.

Tizian is one of the best support role players out there he is no great fragger for sure but if u watch their games and hear interviews you’ll know how important he is Big needs to -nex -xantares yeah he is great but he needs to learn English and just doesn’t fit in big imo +faven +syrson After the roster move give them 3-6 months and they’ll be top 10

2019-04-24 14:40
Xantares definitely is a big hitter but his lacking English skill made a big hit on their team play + BIG often lose their games when they are at the t side. gob b tactics are way to slow paced imo, they often get pushed when they want to set a execute and after that push their biggest enemy is the time because they often go for the execute 20-30sec before the round ends
2019-04-24 14:44
Yeah and I guess that’s mostly because of the bad communication they just need to go full German or atleast get somebody who can talk English
2019-04-25 12:26
They should try to get syrson and than tabsen could go full rifle again
2019-04-25 19:07

Personally I think smooya stepping down has ruined this lineup of BIG. They lack a strong primary awper, tabseN main awping is a fucking crime considering how, in my opinion, he's one of the best riflers in the game, he's a good secondary awper, but i havent seen him take over a t side. With him awping and xantares not playing at his best, they lack alot of firepower.

2019-04-25 13:43
i'd say smooya's x factor made all the difference for big, it was the randomness above the structure of the team, right now you have an incredible aimer (xantares), and pretty good awper (tabsen), but the others are there just to fill the space. Also the communication doesn't seem to be the problem as xantares is delivering every time

bad comms i think, xantares dont speak much german or english and among teams at this level communication really is key, you can't have a good team with shit comms. also even though theres a lot of hate for smooya he really did bring that "x factor" to BIG that xantares cant rlly replace, the team was a lot more promising with smooya and xantares than 4 germans 1 turk

why is it so hard to understand? xantares can literally not speak german at all and his english the only thing he can say = ''YES'' or ''NO'' so i dont know how BIG will communicate but whatever they say ingame xantares understand it for only half if not at all. BIG best thing in the past was their teamwork/tactics they always had low firepower with tizian and gob b and nex being a wildcard. Sure they increased their firepower with xantares but the trade off was communication and teamwork. Not to mention Tabsen also switched over to awping and that also changes a lot of the setup BIG had previously with xantares BIG will likely not succeed for a long period till xantares understand german better. English isn't a real option because the other 4 aren't that fluent in english either. The only saving grace for BIG to win games = xantares going NUTS, tabsen going NUTS and nex OR tizian and gob B not being a bot. not looking pretty for BIG BIG took a gamble to increase their firepower and hope xantares would be able to learn the language a lot quicker but it has backfired instead.
