LEGIJA to coach BIG at Play2Live Cryptomasters
Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninić will step into the shoes of coach Alexander "kakafu" Szymanczyk at the upcoming Play2Live Cryptomasters tournament taking place in Minsk, Belarus from February 24-25.
BIG underwent two changes earlier this month, as Kevin "keev" Bartholomäus was benched and Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninić stepped down to become the German organization's Head of CS, with Tizian "tiziaN" Feldbusch and Niels "luckeRRR" Jasiek replacing the two players.
As the German squad are heading into the $100,000 tournament Play2Live Cryptomasters, set to start tomorrow, Alexander "kakafu" Szymanczyk announced that the team will try LEGIJA as the team's coach in Minsk.
LEGIJA has some coaching experience under his belt, having stood behind North American side Nihilum and later the Kinguin/G2 lineup in the latter half of 2015.
BIG's lineup for Play2Live Cryptomasters is thus the following:
