hyped to watch syrsoN? Wait, other way around

It didn’t take long for BIG to make changes after their early exit in the IEM Katowice group stage.

Just two days after getting the boot by Spirit, the German org announced that the top AWPer, syrsoN, is taking a step back from competing. The reason? Unknown.

This comes as the 3rd change to the roster in the last few months which doesn’t give us a whole lot of confidence about the team’s near future.

syrsoN has always been an integral part of BIG’s success since joining in early 2020 where they dominated during the online era. However, the German sniper could never seem to get to the same level on the stages of international CS, maybe this was part of the problem for BIG.

For now, BIG has called upon the 21 year old sniper Marcel “hyped” Köhn from the academy to take his place. BIG has been fortunate with their academy players being brought in as both Krimbo and s1n showed that they could hold their own outside of the academy leagues. Hopefully hyped can live up to the… hype. Sorry.

hyped stepped in to play the IEM Brazil closed qualifiers and after a rocky start losing 1-2 to Monte they found their feet and dominated the rest of there games 2-0 with hyped having an outstanding 1.46 rating vs HEET.

Later today BIG will be facing HONORIS for the final spot in Brazil. Hopefully they won’t crumble under the pressure, like someone else did…
