CS:GO legends Jarosław ‘pashaBiceps’ Jarząbkowski took over the analyst desk in hilarious fashion, as the pro player made an appearance at the V4 Future Sports Festival in Budapest.

Pasha, a former member of the Virtus.pro squad that forged the Polish dynasty, has struggled to find his former self since his departure from a five-year stint with the organization.

After moving to an inactive role on VP at the beginning of 2019, Pasha joined fellow Polish organization, AGO, in a bid to revitalize his CS:GO career. Following a short stint with the lineup though, Pasha currently sits without a professional team.

@virtuspro (Twitter)Pasha was once a part of the ‘Golden Five’.

Within the same month of his departure from AGO, Pasha has now found himself at the V4 Future Sports LAN tournament, where his ex-teammates in Virtus.pro are competing for the lion’s share of the $300,000 prize pool.

After VP overran mousesports with a clean 2–0 sweep, the analysts desk was breaking down the match before they conducted a spoof designed to rile up Pasha, involving both Matthew ‘Sadokist’ Trivett and Hungarian caster, Balázs ‘Draulon’ Lengyel. 

By way of a ‘good cop/bad cop’ routine, the analyst duo angled their spoof towards mocking VP’s “fluke round” vs. mousesports, in which Draulon sarcastically insinuated that Sadokist was “just a Virtus.pro fanboy.”

Trivett subsequently requested security, which was a cue for Pasha to march behind the analyst desk and live up to his namesake, by carrying the Hungarian off stage.

Disclaimer: No analysts were hurt in the making of this Oscar-worthy lampoon.

After the comedic skit was said and done, pashaBiceps hopped onto the analyst desk to discuss the dominant showing from VP, with Sadokist introducing him by jokingly adding: “That was the biggest clutch you’ve had in about the last year” as he settled onto the desk. 

Although the Polish powerhouse currently has no team to compete at events such as this, his frequent appearances and community interaction are exactly why he remains a fan favorite.

How Tabsen rebuilt German Counter-Strike

German Counter-Strike was a marvel to see in the days of 1.6, and it’s been a long time since the scene had much acclaim. But Johannes ‘tabseN’ Wodarz has slowly been building up the country’s prominence in the esport alongside the rest of the BIG lineup.

Hailing from pre-Source era LANs, tabseN was there when the Germans were a force to be reckoned with, alongside the neighboring French teams of the time. But that pales in comparison to modern CS:GO, where a German player has yet to even grace a grand finals for a Major.

Looking to right that wrong, tabseN would leave NRG Esports in 2017 to create Berlin International Gaming (BIG). He linked up with Fatih ‘gob b’ Dayik and Nikola ‘LEGIJA’ Ninic to take Germany back to its CS glory days.

The early road was rocky, to say the least. Roster changes and injuries marred the first couple years.

This made it hard for tabseN and co. to put together any meaningful results, with only minor success or deep bracket runs that would fizzle out before reaching the finals. TabseN didn’t win a single championship in 2019, that was his first dry year since 2012.

Then the online era of 2020 rolled around, where he was now the prominent IGL and the team had added Florian ‘syrsoN’ Rische and Nils ‘k1to’ Gruhne to the lineup.

Like classic German engineering, he would create a team that could withstand major obstacles and persist pressure. This is the story of how tabseN rebuilt German Counter-Strike.
