BIG Vs OpTic: a head to head analysis.

I’d like to briefly thank @mattys_gaming for creating a visualisation of all historical veto and win percentage information for each team attending the Major, from which much of the following information is sourced.

Owen “smooya” Butterfield was confident in his team’s ability to make top eight at this major, claiming previously his side would breeze through the first two stages winning six maps, and dropping two. The German side has had a more turbulent experience in the first stage; they find themselves at round five with a two win and two loss record, following close losses to Vega (16-19) and compLexity (12-16).

While they managed to hold their own, and kept a good scoreline for the former part of the season, a late season loss streak left the side finishing in 20th place, one spot away from retaining their spot. The change has been made to strengthen the squad in light of other recent events: The team missed out on the ESL Premiership finals after [...]

Epsilon’s roster troubles

Less than a month ago, Tom “jenko” Jenkinson was announced as the fifth man for the epsilon lineup, giving the squad a majority UK roster. While earning themselves the spot as the de-facto ‘best team in the UK’, the roster hasn’t worked out as some may have planned.

Jenko disappeared from the active lineup, with cryptic messages, as is now tradition, being spread around by Owen “Smooya” Butterfield; a tweet posted by him showing two UK flags, two Swedish and a Greek, his usual technique to start roster rumours. Around the time of this tweet DeKay posted his first report of BIG linking Smooya to their squad: a replacement for failed [...]
