DeKay: BIG are looking forward to sign syrsoN & k1to
BIG sees the Sprout Florian duo "syrsoN" Richet and Niels "k1to" Grone as a substitute for Owen "smooya" Butterfield and Ismailkan "XANTARES" Durtkardesh. This was reported by DBLTAP journalist Jarek "DeKay" Lewis, citing several sources close to the club.
According to the information published by the insider, Sprout has already started looking for a replacement for Florian "syrsoN" Richet. To date, we know that one of the sniper candidates is Tomas "oskar" Stastny, who has been a free agent since October when he left HellRaisers.
The German club Berlin International Gaming decided to form an international team in 2018: in April,Owen "smooya" Butterfield replaced Kev "keev" Bartolomaus, and in December, the star Turk Ismailkan "XANTARES" Durtkardesh joined the team. In 2019, the renewed team played in several LAN tournaments, including major IEM Katowice 2019, but did not show significant results.
Florian "syrsoN" Richet and Niels "k1to" Grune joined Sprout in early 2019. The biggest achievements of the Germans in the last six months were second place at Games Clash Masters 2019 and DreamHack Open Atlanta 2019, as well as a victory in the recent regional championship ESL Meisterschaft Winter 2019.
