Statement Tugay “TuGuX” Keskin

Super excited to announce that I will be joining BIG as a coach of the BIG. OMEN Academy team. Very glad to be back in Germany and to see familiar faces again after such a long time and I am confident that I will help the guys to reach a better level through a well-thought-out system. My previous experiences in other projects will definitely help to shape this super talented team into something BIGger. We already started to work and it is looking very promising indeed! #GOBIG

Our BIG. OMEN Academy team is very important for us.

Fatih will continue to support our BIG. OMEN Academy team in addition to his management role and his obligations within our professional department. I’m very happy that we now have Tugay “TuGuX” Keskin with us, a former pro player in German Championships (CS:S and CS:GO), most known for his time in Space Soldiers where he played on an international top-level alongside XANTARES as an IGL.
