Berlin International Gaming are in the process of rebuilding for summer.

Bot Laner Jesper "Jeskla" Klarin Strömberg and Coach Fayan "Gevous" Pertijs have reached verbal agreements with Berlin International Gaming (BIG) to compete in the Prime League, sources told Sheep Esports on Thursday. Set to join ahead of the 2024 Summer Split, the two are the first pieces to the puzzle of BIG's rebuilding after a 9th-place finish in the German ERL.

A BIG Future

Gevous, a Dutch Coach most famously known for coaching Los Heretics in the LVP SuperLiga, has been a free agent since November of last year. This move will represent his first tenure in the Prime League since his time with EURONICS Gaming, back in 2020.

On the other hand, Jeskla recently joined Ramboot, competing in the LVP SuperLiga in spring. With his team, the player achieved a 7th-place finish. The Swedish ADC's contract is set to expire in May, allowing him to entertain offers from other parties. Jeskla was most known for his time both in the LEC and LFL, notably with Astralis and LDLC OL.

Now, the German organization is hoping to bounce back after a catastrophic end to their spring split, having ended the first half of the year with only 5 wins and 13 losses; the worst record in the organization's history. Bringing on two top-tier talents of the ERLs, it is likely that BIG's ambitions will be quite high heading into the next split.

At this time, it is unknown what the full roster of BIG will look like at the conclusion of this off-season. Per sources, the organization is still currently exploring its options in the free-agency market.
