Polish Counter-Strike team Virtus.pro will be replacing Arek ‘Vegi’ Nawojski on the active lineup due to illness, according to multiple sources close to the team.
jedqr is a Polish Counter-Strike player that is currently benched within the x-kom Team organization, meaning Virtus.pro will pay a loan fee to use him on their roster.
It is expected that Grzegorz ‘jedqr’ Jędras will take Vegi’s place during his recovery, in which he will return to the lineup when ready.
After joining x-kom Team in October of 2018, jedqr played for almost six months before being moved to a back-up position alongside Krzysztof ‘Goofy’ Górski. x-kom Team recruited Paweł ‘innocent’ Mocek and Paweł ‘reatz’ Jańczak to replace them over the following month.
Vegi joined Virtus.pro in April, replacing Mateusz ‘TOAO’ Zawistowski on the active lineup. Since joining the roster the team has not made any progress towards gaining international relevance.
After qualifying for the StarLadder Berlin Minor Closed Qualifier, they were unable to reach the Europe Minor with a losses to Mousesports and BIG.
Janusz ‘Snax’ Pogorzelski and coach Jakub ‘kuben’ Gurczyński are the only members from the famous Virtus.pro team that won a Valve sponsored Major in 2014 as well as many other premier tournaments.
The other four players from that lineup have gone their separate ways: Filip ‘NEO’ Kubski is now playing with FaZe Clan, Wiktor ‘TaZ’ Wojtas has started a new project with Aristocracy, while Paweł ‘byali’ Bieliński and Jarosław ‘pashaBiceps’ Jarząbkowski are professionally inactive.
