Considering the past few months for Virtus.Pro, the management decision does not come as really surprising. With the worst performance in years in CS: GO, it was clear that the current VP squad had reached the end of the road, and perhaps it’s time for farewell to the last remaining players from the golden roster
With Jarosław ‘pashaBiceps’ Jarząbkowski and Filip ‘NEO’ Kubski, who have been with the team since 2014, the Virtus.Pro lineup has undergone several changes in the recent period that have left out three of the most respected players, ‘Snax’, ‘byali’ and ‘TaZ’ , Who have contributed to winning the team in several important tournaments throughout its history. Although the changes came to pump new blood into the team’s veins, performance deteriorated throughout the year, ending 24th in the previous FACEIT London Major.
“It’s a sad day for us, but we have to go through it, Right now our players have not been able to show their best in the group, it’s bad for them, bad for us and bad for our fans.” We will update you on plans by the end of the year, “said Director General Roman Dvoryankin
Because of this, the Russian organization has decided to cease the Polish squad CS: GO operationsuntil further notice, restructuring of the team with “young players.” Given that remark and seeing the tweet of the beloved player “pashaBiceps” on Twitter, it is not difficult to see that it is the end of the veteran player’s path with Virtus.Pro.
