BIG qualify for ESL Pro League S6

The German side BIG has earned a promotion to ESL Pro League by beating PENTA in the deciding match of the relegation playoffs 2-0 (16-8 Inferno, 19-17 Cobblestone).

In the EPL Relegation playoffs, both BIG and PENTA lost to HellRaisers, which dropped them to the lower bracket. Yesterday, the European mixture PENTA managed to overcome the legendary Polish side Virtus.pro to send them into ESEA Premier and keep their own Pro League dream alive.

tabseN was the driving force behind BIG's promotion

Today, the two German based organizations played a rematch of the ESEA Global Challenge LAN finals, where PENTA took the 2-0 victory and the title. PENTA's map pick stayed the same for this series, while BIG picked Cobblestone instead of Cache, which they lost in Leicester.

The series started with PENTA getting a solid 7-round Terrorist side on Inferno, but we once again saw how deadly the combination of Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz's fragging and Fatih "gob b" Dayik's calling is on that map when BIG took switched to the offensive side. Dropping only one round in the second half, BIG secured the first map with a 16-8 scoreline.

On Cobblestone, BIG's CT sides were exposed, as a 11-4 first half lead wasn't enough for the Germans to close out the map without going to overtime. In the end, it was a team effort that got BIG the win on the second map, making it 2-0 and securing their Pro League promotion.

because the first of league 2 (premier) should qualifay directly for pro league while the last one of the pro league should be sent to premier directly. just like it is in football or in any other real sport. #BIGwin
2017-05-18 19:53
they last one of pro league does get directly relegated (Kinguin). i agree with the other part tho that the first of premier should get directly into pro league. the relegation could consist of the #13 & #12 of pro aswell as #2 and #3 or premier or just the #13 and #2 of each.

But this is already the case. For instance this season Kinguin got instantly relegated while Godsent was promoted after winning their respective play-offs.
2017-05-18 21:22
BIG should instantly have been promoted instead of Godsent because they became first in the league with 13-3 maps. The other 2 spots should have been decided in a playoff with VP and Hellraisers from EPL.

Why doesn't BIG have a german flag??????????
2017-05-18 19:45
if a news is about an event it shows the flag where the event takes place. EPL EU takes place online so EU flag is the best choice. afaik
2017-05-18 19:47
deserved! they won ESEA League, beat gambit, VP and took 1 map off HR! even tough they are not ready to compete against the Topteams, they will improve alot like they did the last few months!
2017-05-18 19:46
this! super important to play against tier1 teams every week. they can learn a lot from that. especially keev as he is the one with the least experience.
2017-05-18 19:49
guess hard work pays off. they are not there to compete for high placings in the next season but playing better competition will be a great opportunity for them. but i´m still on the -legija train
2017-05-18 19:50
Big can actually do some damage in the Pro League. Pretty sure they won't get relagated, but they should get a solid place mid-table

TabseN is such an amazing player for BIG. Imagine if Mousesports were able to buyout TabseN and put him with Oskar,LoWel, and Ropz... Mousesports would definitely be a scary team afterwards!
