No matches

Something many of us never thought we’d hear – Virtus.pro may not be the best team in Poland anymore.

The Legendary organization has been the best representative of Polish Counter-Strike for years, being home to the golden five and earning the title Virtus.plow.

Now, that all seems but a distant memory. The team is a mere shadow of its former self and that’s probably being generous. The organization that became a household name in the finals of big events has fallen into tier 2 and probably bottom tier 2 territory with very little positives to hang their hat on.

The remnants of the legendary roster have seen Filip “NEO” Kubski and Jarosław “pashaBiceps” Jarząbkowski not currently active in the scene while Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski and Paweł “byali” Bieliński are the core this new roster was built around. Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas currently heads up devils.one which is certainly in contention for the best team in Poland title.

You heard that right. Virtus.pro is not the spot on best CS:GO team in Poland. That’s not saying too much though because I don’t think there’s much separation between the three main Polish teams. AGO, devils.one, and Virtus.pro are all struggling to keep Polish Counter-Strike relevant and none are doing a great job.

Another thing to note is the relative freshness of this CS:GO roster for Virtus.pro. While their results haven’t been stellar, I suppose you have to give the team a bit of a window to find their identity with Arek “Vegi” Nawojski. Since he began playing with the roster they’ve gone 3-8 in maps, picking up maps against LDLC, OwmS, and NoChance.

If you pinned any of these teams against tier 1 opponents, I don’t think one would fair above and beyond above the others and their individual matchups are not guaranteed either.

Virtus.pro may still be the most recognized name, but it holds little value in the server these days and while sad, it’s a truth. Teams are just as frightened if not more of an AGO squad privy to causing upsets or devils.one which holds the best win-to-loss ratio at 25-16 (98-97 for AGO / 3-8 for VP).

While their legacy will forever remain intact, their strength seems diminished. A weak King can only hold the crown but for so long before his grip fades and another sits on the throne.
