BIG Clan secures their first massive title of the year winning the Roobet Cup 2022. The German team beat FaZe Clan 2-1 at the finals to pick up the title. This is their first trophy since winning the Funspark ULTI 2020 which took place last year.
BIG showed up to the event with their ever strong lineup.
- Johannes “tabseN” Wodarz (IGL)
- Nils “k1to” Gruhne
- Florian “SyrsoN” Rische
- Karim “Krimbo” Moussa
- Tizian “Tizian” Feldbusch
The entire roster performed well throughout the event. Even as a stand-in player, k1to turned quite a few heads throughout the tournament. But it was syrsoN who won the MVP of Roobet Cup 2022.

SyrsoN wins MVP
SyrsoN put BIG on the map with his phenomenal performance throughout Roobet Cup this year. The German was awarded the HLTV x BitSkins MVP of Roobet Cup. Over the 14 maps that BIG played on their way to winning the tournament, SyrsoN obtained a 1.23-rated performance. This was SyrsoN’s personal best performance since the PGL Major Antwerp Europe RMR. This isn’t his first MVP, however, as he won his career’s first one at DreamHack Masters Spring back in 2020. While there were quite a few players with higher overall ratings, the AWPer was a crowd favorite in the late-tournament matches. It was Cloud9 in the semifinals and FaZe in the finals that witnessed the wrath of SyrsoN.
BIG’s Journey at Roobet Cup 2022
BIG started off their journey facing Entropiq and FaZe Clan at the group stages. The German team picked up two 2-1 wins against both of them progressing to the knockout rounds. They then faced Eternal Fire and maintained their streak of winning 2-1. At the semi-finals, BIG faced their toughest opponents yet. Cloud9 topped Group B and convincingly defeated 9z Team. Despite that, BIG defeated C9 two straight rounds, winning 2-0 and moving onto the finals. Surprisingly, it was FaZe yet again that stood between them and the Cup title.
This is how the results turned out
Map 1: Dust 2 16-13 win for BIG (BIG Pick)
