SyrsoN brought BIG in the last map to help the group take home the prize.

German CS: GO team BIG has defeated G2 Esports 3-2 today at DreamHack Masters Spring Europe grand finals, winning their first tier-one champion.

TabseN, XANTARES, Tizian Feldbusch, Florian “syrsoN” Rische, and Nils “k1to” Gruhne won six out of the 7 best-of-three series they bet DreamHack Masters Spring Europe, beating higher-ranked teams such as Intricacy, MAD Lions, mousesports, and FaZe Clan along their project.

BIG lost to G2 on June 10 at the upper-bracket last, so the French group had the 1-0 map advantage at the best-of-five grand last. BIG, nevertheless, won three successive maps to reverse sweep G2 after losing the very first map of the series, Vertigo, by 16-5.

TabseN and team then won Nuke (16-5), Dust II (16-6), and Mirage (19-17). BIG were 11-4 down at Mirage after the first half, but G2 could not close out the game once they were 14-8 ahead as syrsoN had the best efficiency of his whole career.

The 24-year-old sniper got 41 frags in Mirage, plus an average of 119.4 damage per round. He got a number of very first kills for BIG and even had an ace in the 2nd half, versus a full-buy. If it wasn’t for syrsoN, BIG would never make this return.

This is an extraordinary accomplishment to BIG, particularly for tabseN, who happily chose to stay in BIG although neighborhood characters stated that he is squandering the finest years of his profession. This is the 2nd trophy BIG won this year, following their DreamHack Open Leipzig run in January.

We’ll see if BIG can stay up to date with this level of play for the foreseeable future, but today’s win will currently make the Germans climb up some positions in HLTV’s world rankings.
