pauliiee joins BIG EQUIPA
BIG EQUIPA have announced the signing of Paulie "pauliiee" Barazani ahead of ESL Impact Season 4. The Israeli, who was benched by NIP Impact in July, replaces Josiane "josi" Izidorio, who was benched in June and recently left BIG EQUIPA to join Ravens.
As part of the move BIG EQUIPA will switch to communicating in English for the first time, something that was confirmed by the organization's statement released alongside the announcement.
BIG EQUIPA were one of the more successful teams upon the inception of the ESL Impact circuit, grabbing a top-four finish in the Season 1 Finals in Dallas. Since then results have waned, with the team failing to qualify for either the Season 2 or Season 3 finals, falling at the final hurdle in both instances. They also narrowly missed out on an ESL Impact Katowice berth, again falling in the do-or-die qualification match.
The player BIG EQUIPA have brought in as their fifth, pauliiee, has plenty of experience in the women’s circuit. Playing for NIP Impact, the rifler helped the team grab a number of top placings in Impact Cash Cups and take second place at the recent Gamers Without Borders Chairty Invitational, beating Nigma Galaxy 2-0 in the semi-finals of the latter event.
Roman Reinhardt, CGO of Berlin International Gaming, is excited by the new addition to BIG EQUIPA. "Despite her young age, Pauliee has already proved that she can perform at the highest level. She is a perfect addition and brings everything with her. Everyone on the team brings so much passion and talent. I am convinced that our ladies and MusambaN1 will play for qualification again. They have my full confidence!"
BIG EQUIPA are now:
