The Berlin based organisation BIG Clan have announced that they are transfer listing Ismailcan “XANTARES” Dörtkardeş, who is rumoured to be joining a Turkish super team alongside Özgür “woxic” Eker, Buğra “Calyx” Arkın and Ömer “imorr” Karataş. However, no official announcement has been made as of yet.

XANTARES was a key member for BIG, having represented the team since late 2018, when he was transfered from Space Soldiers. The team reached their peak in the summer of 2020, when they managed to reach №1 in HLTV’s world rankings.

“I have decided to follow a new path both for my career and for myself. Therefore, I shall not be at the BIG Organization next term.” XANTARES said in a statement on Twitlonger.

“Aside from the good times I have spent while I played at BIG I have also had the opportunity to be able to realize my dream of being ‘Top 1’ among the teams rating and we succeeded in making our team the world’s number one. I have made many good friends and I shall cherish my memories with them.” 

BIG have already secured a replacement for XANTARES as Nicklas ‘gade’ Gade put pen to paper on a deal with BIG yesterday. XANTARES’ contract with the organisation is set to expire in late 2021 and a buy-out may be required if a team wants to acquire his services.
