Virtus.pro shuts down CS:GO
Time: 2013-07-18 14:47
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

According to their website, Virtus.pro have decided to shut down their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive division.

The news comes just weeks after the team recruited Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács and went onto finish 3-4th at DreamHack Summer, 2nd at RC EMS One and 3rd at SLTV StarSeries VI finals.

The post is in Russian and doesn't say much, but it does state the players haven't fulfilled their obligations to the team and that further sanctions will be applied to the players.


ANGE1 will no longer be representing Virtus.pro
 

When contacted for a response regarding the news, the former Virtus.pro squad's in-game leader Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow stated the following:

"Changes are not going to be very predictible, said Karasiow"

That is likely a hint towards player changes as the roster itself joining another organization would have be considered predictable. Karasiow also hinted at changes on Twitter earlier today:

http://static.hltv.org/images/galleries/1693-medium/1374151967.553.jpeg

It remains to be seen what the former Virtus.pro squad choose to do with for example some of the Nostalgie players potentially out in the market to be picked up.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO:(
Na`Vi changes soon
just wait guys

the title is a little misleading, from what I can tell they aren't implying that the org is done with CS:GO

also, "would have been considered predictable"

2nd ? raped by VG at EMS. 3rd fom 4 teams at starladder...
2013-07-18 14:53:15
beat nip more than any other team, doesnt matter that vg raped them once at 1 tournament...
2013-07-18 14:55:32
And coz VP does get raped by other teams and VG dont ? t also doesnt matter ?

Overall achievements also doesnt matter ? cos VP are nowhere near to VG.

I would understand that VP were for a short time once better than VG. But not for a longer time than VG and they arent even anymore.

Numbers dont lie my son.

EDIT: so you basicly using lurpis logic. That everyting what matters is win against nip. If a team looses against random teams. Against not TOP5 teams. It doesnt matter cos they beat nip. So a team who looses to every team except nip is top 2 ?

I consider thorin as a prick but even he said that rate a team based on a single matchup s biggest bullshit ever.

so NIP didnt rape VG 16-2? that never happened? VG does get raped by teams...just bc u dont want to admit it, doesnt mean it didnt happen...
2013-07-18 15:04:17
when ? like 5 months ago ? did u even see last 5 matches between em ? 16:14 and last two went into OT.

Now think before u post something even more retarded. was it fail by VG that they werent able to beat nip ? Yes ofc its obvious.

And now ask yourself what about other teams ? Stop crying cos they didnt had a chance to play nip. Is it fail by em to not get into a finals instead of VG ? Yes it is.

Another funny fuct that its well known that nips performance at last events is way worse than it used to be.

But no point in arguing you are american. What do i even expect..

and CW raped VG not to forget :)
2013-07-18 15:16:44
Yes they did. But if u count numbers of looses against other teams.

VG has way better score than VP. They dont against noob teams. VP do. As i said stats and numbers dont lie.

So what is exactly your point ?
2013-07-18 15:19:48
i just told u the fact there are like top 5-6 teams who can beat each other anyday and there is NiP...
2013-07-18 15:26:38
I would agree that there was a time like that. But not overall period of existence competitive CSGO. And definately not atm.

Once again numbers would be looking different than they do.
2013-07-18 15:29:13
And there is VP who can beat NiP :-)
2013-07-18 15:31:04
But still can lose to not so good teams like Navi anexis etc.

That doesnt count or ?
2013-07-18 15:36:33
Why did you ask that?
2013-07-18 15:49:01
*was
2013-07-18 15:38:51
I mean obv VG is above VP, they might be the strongest in the world atm, for that we have to see the next even how they will deal with NIP
2013-07-18 15:01:36
It sounds so delusional to put them over NiP after they just lost like 40 matches against NiP and never even won a single map against them in 10 months. They can be called the best team after they manage to win at least 3-4 BO3 on LAN against NiP in a row (at least VP already achieved that).

And if this should ever happen, NiP will kick Fifflaren and become even stronger.

Yes overall id doesnt make sense. At the moment ranking it would.


But why not use same logic then for a VP and VG. Cos overall VP are nowhere near to VG. Atm they are also better so ?

Im not arguing about nip being better than VG. But VP being better than VG.

"At the moment ranking it would."

no, it still wouldn't. Right now they haven't even won a single match against NiP, so we don't even need to argue if they're above NiP or not. And even if they would win a game against them: It's still just 1 match. They need to show at least 3-4 victories and some consistence (like getting these victories in a row).

We don't even need to talk about the overall ranking, because to overcome NiP in the overall rankings VG would have to win like 30 times.

To the VP vs VG discussion: IMO they're very close and I would put them probably on the same rank.

So why did you answer on my comment #132? Because that comment was only about VG vs NiP..
2013-07-18 15:31:55
Well cos u or he involved also VP and Vg in.

I never argued about nip. Btw talking about overall rankings. Theres gap between VG and Nip as big as between VG and VP thats just a fact.
2013-07-18 15:34:55
But I never compared VG and VP.

"Theres gap between VG and Nip as big as between VG and VP thats just a fact."

That's not a fact, that's your opinion.
2013-07-18 15:43:11
Well obviously not as big. But theres a gap.

I could give u even a link to team rankings and achievements if u want...

Edit: i have no problems with nip top1. I can agree with you on that.

But VP top2 is more than a funny. I guess probably not for a russian fanbois.

I know VG had more 2nd places in the past, but most of them are already many months back (after that they ended several times 3-5th) and they only got (like VP) 1 first place (or 2, but that one tournament didn't have many good teams, especially no NiP). So yes, when you look at the overall achievements VG is a bit ahead of VP, but if you look at the last 3-4 months they are very close. VG may have beaten VP on LAN, but VP has won 3 BO3 against NiP and kicked NiP out of two tournaments - something VG never achieved.
Anyway; I'm tired of this discussion. I see that you admire VG and that's alright. To be honest I don't really care about any of those two teams, so better find someone else to talk about that.
2013-07-18 16:00:39
Jesus Christ. They won just one tournament. It happens when a team changes some players and calls. Maybe it was a fluke like Na`Vi's one at StarSeries or like WW's one when they finished 2nd at two tourneys but fell into shit after that. Who knows? If VG win couple more tournaments over NiP (that is important) they can be considered the best in the world.
2013-07-18 15:35:20
VP is still 2nd and there's no need to start arguing again, we've been there multiple times....Let VG beat NiP a oucple of times on LAN then we'll talk.
2013-07-18 14:56:42
VG not beating NIP maybe means that VG cant be considered better than NIP, however VG beat VP in a tournament where they beat NIP, VG has destroyed pretty much every team in the past 2 months and VP keeps losing to VG, you can't call VP better than VG if not only they cant beat VG, but also their number of achievements is significantly lower
2013-07-18 15:03:46
The case is closed n00by ;)

Enjoy life!

2013-07-18 15:35:58
Changing in Fnatic will be a 90% sure already IMO. Well, they broke the winning streak in NiP in lan events, beat nip in lan that causes NiP not to play in finals. So they deserve a much bigger organization like fnatic.

This is unreal! VP is TOP 2/3 and they would shut down CS:GO squad? A U serious? The results VP showed could not be compared to any other teams, at least on lan, they were amazing as they were never before....

This is gotta be all bout the money or something, cause it's redicolous...

They were always on top in CS:GO...

Looks like April Fools Day Joke, but I guess it isnt...

I just hope the guys will not break up and find an alternative...

:(
2013-07-18 14:54:16
Well actually I am pretty sure they are recruited for Fnatic now, or maybe they left off VP due to call from Fnatic. If not, CSGO very deaded.

90% sure, was 81% sure but smiley face adds 9%

Well Fnatic would surely have the pull needed for something like this. I'm sure VP guys like money aswell :)
2013-07-18 14:57:18
Actually just GuardiaN himself posted on facebook that some of guys merge other team to make super team. I actually cancel my statement and think that ukraine guys join Na'Vi, which would be likely due to Na'Vis poor performance in CSGO, motivation and lose versus mix team.

Now I am 90% sure that Ukraine guys join Na'Vi, or some people join from Na'Vi and make new team and find new organisation.

Nope, that roster wont stay together.

Well, "player obligations" aside, it's not like Virtus.pro have a choice when they want a russian CS:GO roster. So, this decision is most likely based on not wanting a CS:GO division at all, rather than not wanting this lineup.

2013-07-18 23:23:11
VP organization has just made the worst possible mistake ever been made in the whole history of organizations especially now, when VP did finally manage to climb on TOP and show unreal reasults that they were showing in the past, at least not after ACON 2005 or something, so I dont see any logic here at all....

:0
2013-07-18 14:59:46
" The reason is, some of the guys are gonna merge with some other team and one guy"

So I guess VP orga just didn't want line-up changes, since there would be a big splitup of the players?
2013-07-18 15:26:37
If that's what it is then I really do still think it's a bad decision cause such moves will mean the team will have to once again start from scratch coming up with new teamplay, getting to know everyone's playstyle and skill as well as strategies etc...which will most likely mean the TOP 2/3 results might not be achievable at least for a while as they were before until the team finds their playstyle and starts being on top again. I mean it's ok to start from scratch, its just VP was already on the top and was staying there, but now I guess whatever the team is going to be it might not be playing well right away, might pass some time, but who knows, maybe the new team will keep on beating NiP and then it would bring new moral and motivation in and things will go welll, so I am hoping for the best and gl to whatever this new team will look like!

Guardian
Since today CS:GO squad of Virtus.pro disbands.. The reason is, some of the guys are gonna merge with some other team and one guy, so you will be able to see a great team on the scene :) My future is unknown, although im very motivated to play and dont want to quit, so we will see..
2013-07-18 15:11:22

2013-07-18 15:29:39
I think they just need some time to figure out what they can do and shut it down temporarily? I hope they just make a team with the russian top and give fnatic chances to recruit a sick international line-up
2013-07-18 15:22:25
Fnatic pick them up.

or Na'Vi will.

Unless they change roster,which they shouldnt.
2013-07-18 15:22:46

2013-07-18 15:24:27
ESC have some problems and I think they will be disband and they recruit ex-VP and maybe neo, lrd, pasha, taz, kuben will play in Fnatic.
2013-07-18 15:24:38
Please let that be a April`s fool joke !

It remains to be seen what the former Virtus.pro squad choose to do with for example some of the Nostalgie players potentially out in the market to be picked up.


WHAT NOSTALGIE? NOSTALGIE WAS JUST A MIX TEAM FOR 1 TOURNAMENT
2013-07-18 15:31:20
1st of all for 2 tournaments, but 2nd of all ya, Nostalgie is a mix-team only and is not sponsored by anyone with basically only with OverDrive in it, who was paying for each paly in the team, but the name/team itseld does not have an organization, so I dont know....

what was the 2 tournament?
2013-07-18 15:57:59

I believe we are talking about CS:GO here.

I know about Overdrive's generosity over the years in 1.6 like in ASUS 2007 Summer, I think.
2013-07-18 16:09:04
Here I thought the russians shut down CS:GO, I was happy for one moment.. until........
2013-07-18 15:31:20
Can't believe it....
and i though today is a good day..
2013-07-18 15:31:58
come one guys, he said what's going to happen is unpredictable.

my call:

myRevenge.international with ANGE1 GuardiaN TaZ n0thing FALLEN
2013-07-18 15:32:34
ahaha
2013-07-18 15:33:48
-FALLEN +savage
2013-07-18 15:34:22
I don't know how to play Savage but I know that FalleN is certainly better than him :)

I saw his AWP and him level is comparable to the GuardiaN ;)
2013-07-18 15:43:19
but maybe it is too predictable, I'm rooting for

Real Madrid.csgo (ANGE1 Drogba Zidane Steven Seagal SpawN)
2013-07-18 15:56:39
I think Hereos.csgo will be better:
Vladimir Putin, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and Steven Seagal
2013-07-18 16:05:07

2013-07-18 15:33:18

2013-07-18 15:33:27
Navi must pick ange1, its now or never
2013-07-18 15:33:27
starix, zeus, markeloff, angel, edward is a dream lineup really
2013-07-18 15:36:19

2013-07-18 15:43:38
who cares navi is a family. and ceh9 was always the black sheep.
2013-07-18 15:47:09
who said this to u about ceh9?
2013-07-18 15:48:49
ceh9 was/is the worst navi player
2013-07-18 17:46:39
Natus vincere wont change their lineup.
Keep dreaming.
This lineup is Natus Vincere's best lineup! DA`VI NA`VI !!

even after this? ---> http://www.hltv.org/?pageid=28&ref=frontpageBo..
2013-07-18 15:46:26
On many occasions they have made it very clear that they wont change roster, Either they will continue playing with this lineup or they'll disband.
2013-07-18 15:34:50
Guess they're gonna disband now according to you
2013-07-18 23:25:02
seems legit to kick the second best team in the world! ex-vp to join fnatic.

mouz has not been an important organization for at least 4 years now, same with mTw--don't know why you're so butthurt
2013-07-18 16:09:03
4 years? In 2010 and 2011 they still won some tournaments (I remember that they won IEM Europe in 2010) and ended in Top3 from time to time.

Anyway: For us Germans mouz was the only thing that was left from the good times and the only thing that gave many of us hope to see a good team in future (okay some still believe in Alternate organisation but they made the mistake to go with the CSS team which miserably failed and since all the good 1.6 players retired I can't see how alternate will ever have a good team again, especially since there are no new players joining the scene).


mTw was a big name in esports for a very long time. that organisation was awesome. Before the mTw.dk-time they were a big name in the German scene, having a big community and fan-base. Then they supported a brilliant Danish team for like 6 years. They always belonged to CS :(
That organisation always supported CS and already had a CS team in 2000.

2013-07-18 16:07:44
The amount of brainless replies to this thread is pretty high, below I'll put some examples:

ANGE1
DOSIA
FOX
TaZ
NEO


remember that really touching post TaZ made on his twitter like ONE WEEK AGO where he states HE LOVES his team except LUq?

markeloff, GuardiaN, zeus, edward, starix :-)))

two big main awpers in one team? replacing a support player with a main TOP awper while having another main TOP awper

-fiffy +Guardian

Do you really need f0rest or GeT_RiGhT to shout it in an interview? They are never gonna do it, they have a winning formula, they are friends.

best possible LU
TaZ nEo Dosia ange1 guardian


Isn't dosia playing with his brother(fox)for ages now a clue that they either play together or not play at all? Besides Fox is pretty good and consistent. Try and rethink why G5 are actually called G5.

STOP saying that shit of removing support players, that being fifflaren, ceh9, kucher, etc.
2013-07-18 16:13:44
+1
2013-07-18 16:15:27
fifflaren ? Nope. Read Xizt's twitter.
2013-07-18 16:17:29
im not reading players twitters like a fanboy ... maybe you can tell me whats in his twitter?
2013-07-18 16:19:28
Part 2 of the brainless replies to this thread:

- ceh9 +angel

Do you people know the meaning of "support player"? Leaving aside Na`Vi won't change players, and they are pretty close. Also ceh9 has improved a lot. Despite angel being quite close to Na`Vi in the past, VP is shut down but the team has no reason for not staying together, maybe GuardiaN leaves because(not sure if there are) of communication problems.

VP new lineup:
Neo
TaZ
Guardian
Fox
Dosia
NaVi new lineup:
Ange1
Kucher
Zeus
Markeloff
Edward


Some people like just grabbing a team and make player changes, even if it makes no sense at all. Really no starix? he recently proved how good he was, even winning 1vs4 situations against NiP. Na`Vi is a team with chemistry and a lot of teamplay despite of having some weird performances like playing very strong against NiP and then losing to a mix team and also argue a lot in-game sometimes.

More to follow...

2013-07-18 17:49:38
why do people think that they have been kicked because lack of results, apparently has some work to unprofessional or there is something internally
2013-07-18 16:14:54

seems very odd, they were my 2nd favorite team, if fnatic picks them up that would be epic.

2013-07-18 16:45:09
russians too mad :D
2013-07-18 16:45:19
noone is mad...its not the we lose RU team, its just gonna be a different one and maybe even a couple of teams of known players :) but obviously for the most part it is upsetting to see the highrising team VP that achieved a lot since the birth of CS:GO to disband just suddenly like that and as a matter of fact after just reading Fox's twitter Fox said 20min ago that he's now on the train going to watch some UFA game in some other country when he opened up his vk.com profiel and noticed his friend say "Fox, your'e no longer palying for VP" which Fox didnt even know about, so it seems to be a surprise to some dudes on the team to whats going on...

anyway, w e, we'll find out soon....
2013-07-18 16:49:42
coming changes in navi?
2013-07-18 16:46:17

2013-07-18 16:47:44
Guardian is so unlucky, damn so sad for russian brothers. .:(
2013-07-18 16:47:19
I think GuardiaN is c00L, he palyed in VP, enjoyed his time and he just said today that he is still motivated and doesnt want to quit, so I think he'll find his place in some team very soon. He has to!
2013-07-18 16:52:00
Would be nice to see Guardian in Na`Vi, they were lost with an awper, that would be so damn cool :D

Or Na`Vi to make 2nd Na`Vi.csgo with ex-VP lineup:D

But seriously this is just retarded, Virtus.pro from a good organisation to shit.. Right when the team actually started to progress and pick up some titles.

*CS:GO is deading*

AdreN should've stayed in China or whatever, so this could never happen.

2013-07-18 19:47:19
Update on virtuspro org:

We expect that the organization Virtus.pro and Natus Vincere will soon comment on the situation in more detail. We emphasize that the players VP signed before the end of the year and voluntarily left the organization increase blackmailing conditions. Taking into account not only incorrect behavior and disregard, but also the potential involvement of the player in the NaVi and AdreN'a - organization Virtus.pro considered such a dialogue unacceptable in principle that led to the dissolution of the team.
