Johannes “tabseN” Wodarz have been BIG’s IGL for quite some time, and even though the German side hasn’t been the same since returning from the player break, having gone six events without a top-four finish, the 25-year-old is still satisfied with his development in his leadership role and feel confident in this era of online playing, but thinks things still can be better for him and his troops.
“I would still consider myself a new in-game leader because while gob b was still in the team and we decided to test me as the in-game leader, it wasn’t really a good test. When you are playing with your old in-game leader, he still has a lot of influence on the game. Therefore, since we built this new lineup. I would say I have definitely surprised myself – maybe not surprised, I knew I could do it because of my character as well, I have a strong voice definitely. I’m confident in myself. Overall, I’m satisfied,” tabseN explained, adding that “it can definitely be better.”
BIG will face off against OG today at 16:30 (CET) in their opening match of BLAST Premier Fall Finals and will try to get their revenge against the French-side who eliminated them from the Flashpoint 2 event. “I think this time we will be much better prepared, also on their pick, and I think this time we will make sure that we are getting there.” BIG’s captain told hltv.org ahead of the match.
The match will be streamed on BLAST Premier’s Twitch channel:
