The 18-year-old AWPer Owen "smooya" Butterfield
had been in Epsilon
team since June 2017, before being in active for 4 months, then returning with a new lineup.
Butterfield had been linked with a move to BIG
in the past but it was said that the buy-out fee had caused the transfer to deteriorate.
BIG had stated previously that they wished to remain an all German roster, but in the end the skill of Butterfield was able to win them over, and they hope he can provide the spark they need. Owen "smooya" Butterfield
"Firstly I would like to thank Epsilon for giving me my first opportunity to prove what I can do at a higher level of Counter-Strike, without Epsilon I would never of been given this opportunity to play with such an amazing team so I thank them for all the support they have given me over the past 9 months. As for now I am really excited to start my new adventure under BIG and once again prove that I can play at the highest level of CS while playing under a solid team. Getting this chance to play with such players is amazing for me personally as I’ve looked up to some of these players for years and now I get the chance to create history with them. My main goals with BIG are to make it to legend status at the FACEIT major in London, till then I just want to improve day by day."
