Russian Esports esports organization Virtus.pro are exploring a foray into international CSGO, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation.

Multiple professional players from different countries have been contacted by Virtus.pro while at the Berlin StarLadder Major. 

The organization currently has an entirely Polish Counter-Strike team, who are bootcamping, but this has not stopped them from exploring other options in recent weeks.

The last time they recruited a non-Polish player was with their first CS:GO team in 2013.

That team featured current FaZe Clan AWPer Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács and HellRaisers in-game leader Kirill “ANGE1” Karasov.

Virtus.pro are most known for their legendary Polish lineup that stuck together for over four years and won a Valve sponsored Major in 2014. 

The lineup contained Filip “NEO” Kubski, Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas, Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski, Paweł “byali” Bieliński, and Jarosław “pashaBiceps” Jarząbkowski.

Out of those five players, Snax is the only player that remains with the organization today following a brief stint with Mousesports in 2018.

Since that lineup parted ways, all of the subsequent lineups have failed to gain international relevance. Their current squad finished 3rd-4th at Moche XL Esports 2019 and Good Game League 2019.

Their run to qualify for the StarLadder Major ended with a loss to BIG in the closed qualifier.
