Monster in 2-0 win over GODSENT
September 14, 2017
tabseN went 61/38 on Wednesday in a commanding 2-0 win over GODSENT in ESL Pro League Season 6.
ANALYSIS
tabseN had an absolutely monstrous performance in the series against GODSENT, starting on the offensive side of Cache. Despite the 3-0 start and GODSENT firm on the defense, tabseN came up big in Round 13 with a quad kill entry into the A-bombsite, including a 1-vs-2 clutch to start the three round streak to take the 8-7 lead at the half. tabseN then switched sides to dominate the second half to win eight out of nine rounds to take Game 1 16-8, earning a team-leading 33/16 KD and 135.0 ADR. Mirage claimed Game 2 as tabseN had another rocky start in the first half but quickly stomped GODSENT to take the 6-2 lead. However, GODSENT fired back for a toss up of rounds to settle the half with a 9-6 deficit. A 3-0 start for GODSENT to tie in the start of the second half was quickly diminished as tabseN fragged his way through the second half on the offense to sweep the series with a 16-13 win, posting a 28/22 KD and 114.8 ADR.
Leads BIG to lopsided win
September 13, 2017
tabseN put up a 51/32 KD in BIG's 2-0 win over Heroic on Tuesday in the ESL Pro League.
ANALYSIS
While the first game of this series was pretty close, the second game was a complete blowout. tabseN was on his game from the very start of this series. He grabbed three kills with the Deagle early on and then it was off to the races. While Heroic did manage to push this into overtime, BIG won all four games in the extra rounds to lock up the win. While he dropped a 30-bomb in the first game, he pulled in the damage like crazy in the second. He finished with a 125.6 ADR, most in the game, to lead his team to a blistering 16-1 win.
Thrashed Game 2 for the split
August 26, 2017
tabseN earned a 36/39 KD on Wednesday in a 1-1 split against HellRaisers in ESL Pro League Season 6.
ANALYSIS
tabseN started the series on the slower side of things with a 6-0 deficit to start on the offense. Despite the deficit early on, tabs helped power his team back into contention with several entry-kills and bomb plants to settle the half down 9-6. The second half didn't have much action on tabseN's side beside one round won in the 16-7 loss. In Game 2, tabseN had a busy first half on the offense racking up the KD on entries early for a 7-2 lead. Although he started to struggle on the offense towards the end of the half giving up rounds late for an 8-7 lead. However, the second half was quiet for tabseN, with not much action early in the half although his defense came into play to hold off HellRaisers to close out the series 16-11.
Elusiveness leads to split
August 24, 2017
tabseN tallied a 32/33 KD in his team's split with FaZe Clan in the ESL Pro League on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
tabseN was pretty average throughout this series against FaZe on Thursday. In the first eight rounds of the game, he only had three kills. This directly coincided with BIG's early slump in this series. He found some nice double kills in the second half, but they were in too much of an early hole and couldn't really bounce back. The second game was a much better showing all around from BIG. He managed to stay alive for the first few rounds while also stringing together some nice early kills. He may have had a couple moments where he simply missed some shots and couldn't finish off kills, but their 8-0 start was simply too much for FaZe to overcome.
Big plays all throughout despite loss
August 22, 2017
tabseN did his best to power his team ahead with a 46/43 KD, but BIG was still taken down 2-0 by Fnatic on Tuesday in the ESL Pro League.
ANALYSIS
tabseN was the only reason that BIG even threatened to pick up a win in this series. He went off during certain stretches of both games, and almost single-handedly put the team on his back to fuel comebacks attempts. He was especially strong late in Game 1 with nine kills between Rounds 18 and 19, but that simply wasn't enough. The same can be said for Game 2 where he again was the only player on his team with a positive KD. BIG certainly has some adjustments to make to get back to their PGL Major form we saw last month.
Goes off on FaZe Clan on Inferno
July 19, 2017
tabseN earned a solid 23/13 KD on Sunday with a win over FaZe Clan on Inferno at the PGL Major.
ANALYSIS
tabseN had a slow start to Inferno on the offensive side facing a 4-0 deficit early on, but a Round 8 triple entry kill into the A-bombsite tied the game. The late comeback in the first half resulted in tabseN playing more aggressive on the offense, spreading apart the defense to pounce in Round 13 with a triple kill down the middle, ending the half up 8-7. tabseN had a monstrous second half, starting with an aggressive triple kill down the middle to take the pistol. He then followed up the next two anti-eco's with an aggressive double-kill push down Banana to take the lead 11-7. tabseN continued to dominate the second half with a Round 20 triple kill hold on the B-bombsite. Then, finally, he managed to send the game into map point with a Round 22 double-kill hold on the A-bombsite that pushed the team for a 16-8 Inferno win, earning a team-leading 100.1 ADR.
Slow beginnings
January 16, 2017
tabseN underperformed for BIG with a 19/22 KD loss to FlipSid3 on Day 1 of DreamHack Leipzig.
ANALYSIS
tabseN had a slow start to Day 1 against Flipsid3 on the CT-side which didn't gain much ground on the favored side. tabseN remained quiet up until the eighth round where he picked up a double kill to secure the first round for his team in the half. However, his momentum was quickly turned down after a crushing loss on the B-bombsite that gave FlipSid3 more ground to cover. tabseN contributed to the last two rounds won for BIG that completed a 12-3 record at the half. The second half started off with tabseN getting the only double kill to help his team secure the second pistol round with an aggressive push onto the A-bombsite. The quick pistol round turned into five consecutive rounds won, including tabseN's triple kill tot secure round 19. Although BIG came back into the frame, Flipsid3 managed to win three straight of their own to bring the match to map point. tabseN and company didn't give up as they rallied back to win three straight for BIG thanks to tabseN's quad kill on the A-bombsite to start off. He then followed the next two rounds with a couple of quick entries before falling 16-11. tabseN finished the day with a 19/22 KD followed by a 79.4 ADR.
Only one to consistently show up in loss
January 15, 2017
tabseN put up a 44/39 KD in BIG's loss to FlipSid3 in the grand finals of DreamHack Leipzig.
ANALYSIS
tabseN was feeling it from the very start of Game 1 of the series. In the pistol round, he and BIG executed a textbook retake on the B-bombsite to take a 1-0 lead on the back of a tabseN 3k. Not slowing down one bit, he then retook the A-site by himself for a 1-vs-2 clutch in Round 4. He would continue this strong play throughout the game, ending up as one of the few bright spots for the German squad during the loss. tabseN was once again strong and at the forefront of his team in Game 2, but they just couldn't string very many rounds together early on in the game. Towards the end of the half though, they managed to right the ship. tabseN and keev took matters into their own hands as they finally won some games. tabseN picked up a double in Round 14 and a 3k in Round 15. They tried to make a bit of a run in the second half, but it was swiftly shut down by FlipSid3.
Joins all-German team, BIG
January 4, 2017
tabseN will next hit the stage under the BIG banner, reports Sam Nordmark of DOT Esports.
ANALYSIS
Following their release from NRG, tabseN, LEGIJA and gob b have joined forces with nex and keev to form a new team that will be called BIG. The team touts some of the most experienced German players in the CS:GO scene, and will look to make some waves in 2017. If the fact that the three NRG players actually paid for the buyout of nex and keev from their contracts is any indication, the players are extremely dedicated to making this team work. Only time will tell if this dedication translates over to the game.
Free Agent
Released by NRG
December 19, 2016
tabseN has been released by NRG eSports, reports Jarek "DeKay" Lewis of Slingshot eSports.
ANALYSIS
tabseN was let go from NRG as a part of their major roster overhaul the last couple weeks. The team hasn't been performing well at all this year, and it was time for a change. This move should come as no surprise since he never really did much whenever NRG was fortunate enough to see some action in big tournaments. He will now be on the hunt for a new team going into the 2017 competitive year.
Poor showing in loss
October 26, 2016
tabseN finished NRG's loss against Team Dignitas in Group B of the ESL Pro League Finals with a KD of 8/18.
ANALYSIS
tabseN finally got on the board with one kill in Round 4, but NRG were just getting absolutely destroyed early on in the first half of the game. He got a couple double kills throughout the game, but most of his kills were separated by far too many rounds to be effective. Due to the fact that NRG was so bogged down in this game, they had to run with pistols very often. This was also a big contributing factor to their overwhelming loss in this game.
