Amidst the slew of roster changes this month, it can be hard to keep track of who is on what team. Recently, ESL Pro League's website showed Denis "denis" Howell as being on the roster of BIG, leading to speculation that he had joined the German team.
I am not part of the @BIGCLANgg roster. I just got asked if I want to substitute in case they need one, because I don't have a team.— Denis Howell (@denisCSGO) August 18, 2017
On his Twitter page, denis made it clear that was not the case, and he would only play for BIG as a substitute.
This news follows denis' recent release from mousesports, a team he had played on for two years. In an interview with Unikrn, denis stated that he still had the desire to play with a German team and compete on the big stage.
I will help out my german friends @ATNattax for the ESL One NY qualifier next week and some league matches since one of them is on vacation.— Denis Howell (@denisCSGO) August 11, 2017
Though he is teamless as of yet, denis has not been idle. He's agreed to sub in for ALTERNATE aTTaX in the ESL One: New York qualifier, and now he may also have opportunities with BIG.
If he has good performances with either team, it is to be hoped that he'll find a new organization to call home before long.
