Leads the way in sweep of Renegades
October 22, 2017
tabseN tallied a 41/37 KD in BIG's 2-0 sweep over Renegades in the semifinals of DreamHack Denver.
ANALYSIS
tabseN was the driving force in this series win against the Aussies on Sunday. While gob b brought the srats, tabseN brought the kills. He started with a double on the force buy in Game 1, and it never stopped from there on. He was getting retakes with his pistol and generally dominating the game. He may have taken a bit to get going in the second game, he came on strong in the later rounds that BIG used to fuel their big comeback.
Strategies help bring BIG back
October 22, 2017
gob b went 38/36 in BIG's sweep of Renegades in the semifinals of DreamHack Denver.
ANALYSIS
gob b was pretty textbook with his strategies in Game 1, but that wasn't a bad thing at all. It was more than enough to keep BIG ahead for most of the game, even despite gob b not putting together very many kills. He only had one kill after eight rounds but ended up being near the top once it was all said and done. With the Game 1 win in hand, they went into the second frame with plenty of confidence. They started a bit slow but came on in the second half to move towards the win. gob b, in particular, was a big part of this comeback with plenty of second-half multi-kills that led to the win.

The decision came down to the team choosing between ESL Meisterschaft or the upcoming ELEAGUE qualification as both events fall on the same week. The team then decided to take part in the qualification of ELEAGUE knowing the risk of a non-qualification as the team could walk away with nothing.
