Owen Butterfield, known as “Smooya,” is a 20-year-old British CS:GO player who was playing for BIG Clan since April 2018. In January 2020, he decided to leave the team and joined the Chaos Esports Club.

The conclusion we came to was that it was because people were playing not to lose. If that was not it, I don’t know, we just sucked on LAN, all five of us. Our comms were really chaotic and stuff like that, and although it seemed like by the end we were starting to fix it, the roster broke up, so…”
