DeKay’s Sources: TaZ’s Aristocracy CS:GO team to receive investment from Codewise CEO
Polish Counter-Strike team Aristocracy are expected to create a new esports organization with investment from Codewise CEO Robert Gryn, according to multiple sources. At this time, the name of the new organization is unknown as discussions are still ongoing.
Codewise Unicorns entered CS:GO in the later part of 2017 by picking up a Polish roster with a core of players that still remain today. Despite playing together for almost two years, they have been unable to break into the international competitive scene and have very few recognizable results.
With the creation of a new organization, it is unclear if Codewise Unicorns will remain under ownership of Robert Gryn’s brother, Alex. Robert Gryn is the CEO of parent company, Codewise, a European technology company.
Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas is one of the most respected Counter-Strike players in Poland and has played professionally for eighteen years. He is most known for his time with Virtus.pro in CS:GO where they won a Major and numerous international tournaments over a three year period with the same five-man lineup.
Since leaving Virtus.pro, he has played on a new lineup named Aristocracy that recently became free agents after leaving the devils.one organization. That move was first reported by Dexerto and came as a result of disagreement over contract terms presented to the players.[ad name=”article3″]
Aristocracy currently hold a spot in ESL Pro League Season 10 after their 9-10th place finish in Season 9. They failed to qualify for the StarLadder Berlin Major after four attempts at open qualification.

On their final attempt, they lost to Virtus.pro only to beat them five days later in the Spring ESL Polish Championship.
Correction: A previous version of this article mistakenly stated that Robert Gryn was also CEO of Codewise Unicorns, rather than his brother, Alex Gryn.
