May 5th, 2018 15:48

The organizers have revealed the German squad BIG as the seventh invited team to ESL One Cologne.

Fatih "gob b" Dayik's side are the seventh team confirmed to compete at the $300,000 tournament, as they'll join Cloud9, fnatic, FaZe, SK, G2, and Astralis in Cologne.

BIG have recently replaced Kevin "keev" Bartholomäus with Owen "smooya" Butterfield, who played his first tournament under the German banner at the Qi Invitational and finished 7th-8th, albeit without gob b.

BIG will be in action at ESL One Cologne

Five more invites are left to be revealed by ESL, while the remaining four spots will go to the finalists of the European qualifier and the winners of the North American and Asian qualifiers.

The participants' list at ESL One Cologne, which will take place on July 3-8, currently looks as follows:

United States Cloud9  Brazil SK
Sweden fnatic Europe FaZe
France G2 Denmark Astralis

1 team is now making it into lan in pro league the other team relegation right away and struggling to get back on top.the other team is on the final in wesg the other is long gone
2018-05-05 19:47
“struggling“ = playing for first place n1 wesg in group with fnatic, sk, russia, ago, wololos and only losing to ago nt what teams ss beat at wesg?
2018-05-05 21:15
Yep,AGO the team that gonna be relegated from pro league this season? Russia that got destroyed by SS in semifinal and mix of t3 player of wololos? sounds like a great achievement from a team full of bot like BIG.

2018-05-05 16:46
Agreed, particularly not a fan of inviting teams to one of the biggest tournaments of the year where the probability of them making out of groups is less than a single percent.
2018-05-05 16:48
+1 i mean they lost to eclipse and dont remember who the other guys were, couldve invited way better teams edit* the only decent player on there is smooya & tabsen but hes inconsistent af right now
2018-05-05 16:49
yeah, after 5hrs sleep and no warmup (or less sleep) u can totally expect them to win at 9am in a bo1 with a standin and without an igl “cant remember the other team“ - which place tyloo got in sydney?

well i would cry if they would invite big again and again even tho they are faling all the time but its their first invite and its their home event so whats wrong with inviting a home team? i would rather see a german qualifier but there is nothing wrong with having a german team in a german event

2018-05-05 19:53
Qualifiers to the event exist, and inviting German teams to an event doesn't matter if they don't make it out of groups (and most likely don't even make it to a decider match). If the number of invites were reduced in lieu of more/harder qualifier matches, so be it. ... Doesn't take away from the fact that this invite (at least in a competitive sense) is complete fucking nonsense. Edit: Cologne is a completely different entity to Sydney, so don't even think the nationalism is consistent, or needs to be consistent.

Inviting for one of the biggest tournaments based on homecrowd which They'll never see with current form. Some of the better teams will potentially miss out because of #29 in rankings. One of the worst ways to waste spots. TabseN and nex better be back in form to justify this try of reviving German scene.
2018-05-05 17:13
#29 not real rank tho -points for... >new lineup > not desperately playing online tourneys like bets.net or some shit all the time, therefore less events (,wins) and less points same as f3 back then: always at major -> top 20; never in ranking -> “worse than top 30“
2018-05-05 21:28
I don't remember F3-lvl of success teams being invited to such a tournament very often. And they never truly got together since Krakow, that's a really sad-looking team(It was real bad looking at those Legends jerseys at the last major) with the only bright spot being this surprise-invite. I would be glad even at this point if It's suddenly not all for nothing again.
2018-05-05 23:12
they looked really promising in the esl bh qualifier, even with a stand in additionally im pretty sure f3 level teams would be invited aswell if the tourney is in their home country and theyre the best national team nonetheless a invite in 2017 would be more justified than the one now

For every dumb fuck: Australian Tournament=Renegades, Grayhound German Tournament=BIG
2018-05-05 18:57
You are right - i don't undestand those people who said BIG T-50 They can play little bit better in their house. ESL should put one more German team - or make some elimination only for German and give for winner spot. I think in every tournament in the world organised by ESL should be minimum 2 home team.

in an oceanian qualifier .... come on ... thats the same as there would be a D-A-CH Qualifier for Cologne ...
2018-05-06 03:52
btw ... then we had in cologne ... BIG ( Invite ) and maybe Attax or ESG or Sprout or maybe Berzerk ... if that would be the fact, I would agree with flaming to stop making Cologne a 2nd class Tournament ... btw take a Look at Dreamhack summer or valencia .... Dreamhack was a real good event with top Teams .. but what is it now ?

Almost every team in top 25. Decent teams. Championship winning teams. Like NIP, Mouz, c9, liquid, Navi, North, Heoric, Fragsters, NRG, Tyloo, renegades, Spacesoldiers! Even VP has a better chance of having impact than BIG.
