BIG best Renegades to secure semi-final spot in Leipzig

BIG have booked a spot in the semi-finals of DreamHack Open Leipzig after defeating Renegades 16-8 in Group A's winners' match.

After outperforming Virtus.pro and Cloud9 earlier in the day, BIG and Renegades faced off for the top spot in Group A and a day's rest heading into the playoffs.

Liam "malta" Schembri and Jordan "Hatz" Bajic cracked open the map with USP-S triple and duo kills, respectively, ensuring an advantage kicking off their CT side start to the map. A productive pistol buy from BIG immediately afterward produced sufficient momentum for the German side to assume the reins until the middle portion of the half.

k1to led his team in terms of kills with 20 frags to his name

It was at this point that the Australians were able to recuperate from a difficult start, closing out four consecutive rounds, and after blows were exchanged, the teams swapped sides at an even 8-7, favoured towards BIG.

Shortly after assuming the defence, BIG were able to secure double digits off the back a pistol round victory. The Germans further solidified their position with the help of back-to-back 3ks from Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz and Ismailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş, which put them just three round victories away from the semi-finals. A 2v2 post-plant on the B site in round 24 fell through for the Ts, marking the conclusion of Nuke at 16-8 in favour of BIG.

I have been really confused as to why BIG was getting worse and not better, when I knew they had a plan for another major run. Well now I know why. They were waiting until they got their new players, and completed their roster before playing their hand. the timing of gobB becoming head of CSGO operations, getting their new players, sandbaggging games not trying and now they try super hard? It is because they have been planning to go on a run to be a top team but they needed to wait until everything was line up. Now it is all lined up for BIG, just you wait, just you watch and see! BIG is going to become a top team in 2020 and I have proof: hltv.org/forums/threads/2230789/big-beco..
