Berlin International Gaming has officially added a Valorant team. The new team will feature Counter-Strike: Global Offensive legend, and head of BIG's CS: GO team, Fatih "gob b" Dayik and Alexander "alexRr" Frisch as the building blocks.

"We have been working on our expansion into Valorant for many months now," says CEO Daniel Finkler. BIG also competes in CS: GO, League of Legends, Trackmania, and Quake.

BIG has found success in CS: GO as their team most recently placed first in the Summit 6 online European tournament and is currently ranked as the best CS:GO team in the world. The German esports organization hopes to translate that success to Riot Games' new first-person shooter.

While the final three members of the team have yet to be chosen, BIG has a lot to work with. Gob b, who retired from competitive play in 2019, had a successful career with BIG. Along with alexRr's in-game expertise and who has already made a name for himself playing Valorant, they will look to make waves in the Valorant community.
