tabseN - Career
Johannes started his Esports career in 2012 as a Counter Strike player at DkH Multigaming and Karont3 e-Sports Club. A short time later, however, CS:GO was released and the professional scene quickly shifted towards Counter Strike Go. His first year as a pro was marked by numerous club changes and stays at Playing Ducks, Team Server-Forge and n!faculty.
The German's first longer stay was with mousesports, in 2014. For around a year, he took part in numerous top tournaments with the organisation, but success was out of reach. A first highlight of his career and time at Mouz was the participation in the Katowice 2014 Major.
He continued his journey with Mousesports and again Playing Ducks before joining PENTA Sports, where tabseN spent another year of his career. Currently we are in 2015/16 and the team took part in several national tournaments as well as numerous qualifiers.
In 2016, Johannes spent half a year under contract with NRG eSports before his journey led him to the BIG Clan. Together with his teammates at NRG, LEGIJA and gob b, TabseN founded the new German team, which was completed with the signings of nex and keev.
After participating in numerous A- & B-Tier tournaments, BIG made it to the PGL Major in Krakow 2017 via the Europe Minor Championship, and the Offline Qualifier. Surprisingly, the German newcomers were able to secure 5th-8th place finish and showed off at international level for the first time.
TabseN formed BIG like no other and is still one of the absolute key players in the German top team. On 02.01.2020 he will celebrate his third anniversary as a member of the BIG Clan.
tabseN - Achievements
TabseN took part in a total of five major tournaments, but was never able to finish higher than fifth with his team. The biggest successes for tabseN were practically all in 2020. In a year that started unimpressively, the BIG Clan convinced and surprised everyone. In the meantime, the German team was even in first place in the HLTV world rankings. Victories at the DreamHack Open Leipzig, the cs_summit, the DreamHack Summer & -Spring are the basis for the success.
The IGL was able to conclude its great and above all successful year with two third places at the IEM Global Challenge and the BLAST Premier Fall. The past year was also outstanding individually and Johannes, together with his team, will try to carry the momentum into 2021 and both win more tournament victories with BIG and first individual awards.
