BIG unveil denis as nex takes break

BIG have announced that they have completed the signing of Denis "denis" Howell from Sprout.

The 24-year-old enters BIG's starting line-up with immediate effect as Johannes "nex" Maget is moved to a substitute position once again following a relapse of the wrist problem that saw him miss almost three months of action at the start of the year.

denis, one of the most experienced players in the German scene, with eight Major appearances, leaves Sprout after 18 months with the organisation, who entered CS:GO in December 2017 with the acquisition of the Seed roster.

denis replaces nex on BIG's roster

During his time with Sprout, denis attended ELEAGUE Major 2018 and picked up title wins at the ESL Meisterschaft Summer 2018 Finals and at DreamHack Leipzig WinterNational. His final appearance for the team came at the Good Game League 2019 qualifier in Olsztyn, where the Germans went out third-fourth.

It remains unclear when nex will be seen again. Since returning to the squad in February, as a replacement for Owen "smooya" Butterfield, he had averaged a 1.04 rating on LAN, raising eyebrows at the IEM Katowice Major and at IEM Sydney as BIG's top performer.

"Denis is clearly one of the most experienced and consistent players in Germany and has already played on a top level internationally," BIG CEO Daniel Finkler said in a statement. "We are happy to have found a player who can help us during the upcoming challenges with all his knowledge and energy he can bring to the team.

"While transfers and player changes in sports clubs happen on a daily basis, some of them are tough to make. The replacement of Johannes “nex” Maget is definitely one of those.

"As a founding member of BIG, Johannes not only helped us with his tremendous talent as a player, he also shaped the organization and our identity since our foundation. The whole BIG team will support him during the recovery phase and his upcoming competitive pause. I’m extremely thankful for all his efforts and all the unforgettable moments we shared so far.

"Moreover, I`m proud to have him as a friend and shareholder on board of the BIG family and we will continue to write history together with him. It’s not a farewell."

denis, who will reunite with former mousesports teammate Fatih "gob b" Dayik in the team, will make his first appearance for BIG next week, in the second round of ESL Pro League Season 9 Europe. The German team will face Heroic, Natus Vincere and North as they look to secure a spot at the offline finals, in Montpellier.

With these changes, BIG currently have:

Germany Fatih "gob b" Dayik
Germany Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz
Germany Tizian "tiziaN" Feldbusch
Turkey Ismailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş
Germany Denis "denis" Howell

Germany Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninić (coach)

United Kingdom Owen "smooya" Butterfield (substitute)

Draken once was shit on Fnatic and on NIP he was insane. Maybea BIG fits him better then sprout.
2019-05-15 18:27
Denis is, was and always will be shittier. Back when he was in mouz him and Spidii were the lowest ratet players of all the top 20 teams if I recall correctly, I hate when people get picked up because they are "experienced" when they are basically just shit for a very long time. You cant compare draken to him cause draken proved to be a decent player in the past, denis has not.

Its not all about Firepower and stats... Just give it a try!
2019-05-16 10:07
The difference here is denis has been around for a longer time, he's not some explosive younger player like draken. denis has been mediocre for years, he's not going to change on this team.
2019-05-15 20:35
Well then another example Xizt. Xizt fragging on NIP was shit but when he joined faze he looked really good and they won IEM sydney with him.
2019-05-16 02:03
Xizt wasn't fragging super well during any of those tournaments... he mostly acted as a support player, and got a couple nice clutch clips Notice he had a 1.03 average rating at the tournament you mentioned. Not playing badly, but nothing to write home about. Honestly denis isn't exactly a bad player to have on a team like BIG, but I'd see him as more of a support player, something a player like tiziaN could already do much better with the addition of more fragging power
2019-05-16 04:20
Maybea tizian swaps to a more fragging role. They said in an interview that he bekomming the Entry fragger lately
2019-05-16 13:14

nah they just founded the team newly and they had a communicational barrier (and even tho im a fan, Cologne was a fluke and rather bad for the team (and their own standards))
2019-05-15 20:08
True but I hope I'm not reading you say it's tabsen fault, he's similar to s1mple in that he is a good awper but better rifler. He awped well for big, big just can't pick up the rifling slack when he's awping, sorry if I misinterpreted
2019-05-19 15:47
wtf denis is actually as skilled and experienced as nex. the difference is that denis has a different playstyle and role AND he does not have any health issues. if there was a good awper available that doesnt destroy a decent team i would rather pick the awp. hope sprout does not fall off completely.

probably nex has a bit more raw aim but that does not really matther in this case becase -nex +denis can fix several problems in the team

+1 Sprout never was good on international events. I wondered why Spiidi and denis, who both are really experienced in top-class international teams, remained in that team. Now that denis is in a better team he has more chances to shine. Also @all don't forget that nex had to step down again because of his injury.
2019-05-15 14:36

tabsen decided to step up his game as an awper just like autimatic so i dont think they even consider that fact
2019-05-15 14:04
it´s not like either c9 or big have been playing well since those changes so yeah
2019-05-15 14:07
Auti played awp with stewie during their major win too.
2019-05-15 14:22
Ska.
2019-05-15 14:33
Ska was main awp, but its easy to check for yourself, auti had picked the awp just slightly less, with stewie not far behind. imo 4 of them (all except rush) could play awp really really well.
2019-05-15 14:49
Playing secondary awp roles and doing decently well does not mean " omg this guy should main awp!!!"
2019-05-15 17:17
Decently well? Dont talk when you obviously isnt watching games.
2019-05-15 22:22
pls bro... and thats not even the point. the point is primary awping != secondary awping a lot of ppl with good aim can do good with secondary awp roles. but they wont even come close to being a good primary awp.

I also disagree with this change but picking 2017 stats it' just not fair.
2019-05-15 14:11
i picked all time stats from big events...and i highly doubt that he will be suddenly carry
2019-05-15 14:11
Yes but he didn't play any big events in 2018/2019. hltv.org/stats/players/events/7511/denis I know that this is against lower class teams but these stats are also recent. We will see how it goes.
2019-05-15 14:13
yea, he didnt play vs single top10 team last 12 months on lan. we will see but im still sceptical. they made huge mistake with smooya...

2019-05-15 14:10
there is nothing to understand. nex has chronic wrist problem and if he tells you tomorrow that doctor said he cant play, he cant play. because they are good friends and family, they gave him the option to come back twice, but I guess this bonus is expended now.
2019-05-15 14:18

Faven also played with nato and percy in sprout for at least 3 months, so i dont think he has problems with it

His aim is great but his gamesense is so bad it's often embarassing Not to mention he tends to overpeek and do unecessary heor moves on CT ( that end up costing his team ) , and can't speak sh-t aside from turkish...

Denis is the most experienced for his age. And he played with gob and tabsen before.

if german cs needs one thing it's fresh blood.. they already have gob b and tabsen as super experienced players. who cares then if denis got experience. what they need is talent and talent needs to be given chances.
2019-05-15 18:24
What they need is disband and disband needs to happen soon

not really, they could easily form some team which would consistenly stay in top10 at least. some mix of big and sprout or even attax would do it. though the problem is that big players and/or management prefers to sign players they are "friends" with. they even stated that in some interview way back. they don't aim for the best possible line-up and thus the best achieving team, they don't aim for the best ranks like other teams do. and to be honest that's a shame, there really are some german players who deserve better.
2019-05-16 18:45
TLDR: What they need is disband and disband needs to happen soon EZ4ENCE though

If i am not wrong nex was ill recently and made a comeback to the game to early, probably that's why he's going to take a break.

wtf why not bring smooya back
2019-05-15 18:18
i know, what i meant was instead of loaning smooya to renegades they could have play him
2019-05-15 19:43
Maybe smooya still didn't change his mind about BIG. He may be thinking about joining Renegades but grat is a good player too. I don't see Renegades giving up so easy on him. But he may consider joining BIG again after he is done with Renegades.

Baffled the same way as many others. Syrson looked as the natural replacement and it would make perfect sense. Denis? Only Spiidi would be a worse pick from Sprout. Congratulations BIG, you played yourself.
