How good is BIG? With an excellent and flawless RMR tournament, the expectations have been sky-high for the Germans, who have not been performing like this for quite some time. But can they follow through? Today we got the first answer. Against Imperial in the opening round at the Legends Stage at PGL Antwerp, BIG proved to be the real deal. At least in the first half.
A stunning first-half against FalleN’s Imperial saw the Germans go 13-2 to completely shut down their Brazilian counterparts. A superb showing from the entire roster gave BIG every opportunity to seal the deal. But Imperial did not want to go down without a fight. The Brazilians made it all the way to 11-14 before BIG finally closed the match.
BIG is now 1-0 up, while Imperial needs to do better if they want to make it to the stage at the PGL Antwerp Major. The second round of the Swiss Group Stage starts later tonight.
