“I will now join older friends I worked with since the beginning of my professional career,” said denis. The rifler has plenty of experience working with BIG’s in-game leader, Fatih “gob b” Dayik; both played under the umbrella of mousesports in 2015.

Denis will replace Johannes “nex” Maget on BIG’s roster. Nex, a founding member of BIG, will occupy their bench as he recovers from ongoing wrist issues. “Last but not least all the best to nex, my former longtime roommate. I wish you a healthy recovery,” wrote denis.

Denis’ first game with BIG will be on May 21, against Heroic in stage two of ESL Pro League season nine.
