Virtus Pro has announced the Counter-Strike team will not play under the organization’s banner until further notice.
The team saw several roster changes, as the former Virtus Pro lineup consisted of Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas, Filip “NEO” Kubski, Jaroslaw “pashaBiceps” Jarzabkowski, Junusz “Snax” Pogorzelski, and Pawel “byali” Bielinski. The counter-strike lineup was one of the longest running rosters in CS:GO history.
Virtus Pro made several changes in order to make the team more successful and produce better results overall. Over the last year, they let go Tax, Snax, and Byali. The organization acquired young Polish players
Michał ‘Snatchie’ Rudzki and Piotr ‘Morelz’ Taterka.
The current team that has ceased operations consists of Michal” MICHU” Muller, Piotr “morelz” Taterka, Michal “snatchie” Rudzski, Filip “NEO” Kubski, and Jaroslaw “pashaBiceps” Jarzabkowski.
After poor performance over the last several years, Virtus Pro has decided to cease all competitive activities until further notice for their Counter-Strike team.
The team finished 5th at BLAST Pro Series: Istanbul 2018, and failed to qualify for the ESL pro League season. The announcement comes to no surprise with the team having lack-luster results over the last year.
Roman Dvoryankin, Virtus pro General Manager:
“After London Major we were quite optimistic about the potential of the current lineup. Unfortunately, our expectations were not met. The long term strategy for us is to build a competitive team around young players and we will follow it while making decisions. I’d like to ask our fans to be supportive in the next couple of weeks.”
