Virtus.pro to attend IEM Shanghai with morelz

Piotr "morelz" Taterka will be Virtus.pro's fifth player at IEM Shanghai, HLTV.org has learned.

The 23-year-old will continue to fill in for Virtus.pro after having already played for the team in a number of tournaments, most notably at DreamHack Valencia, in the wake of Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski's departure to mousesports.

At the Spanish event, the Polish side cut a frustrating figure, going out after just two matches and with just 18 rounds amassed in total.

morelz's future with tomorrow is currently up for debate after the team were forced to send Grzegorz "SZPERO" Dziamałek and Kacper "kaper" Słoma back to Kinguin following the expiry of the loan deal for the duo.

morelz will play for Virtus.pro in Shanghai

Earlier in the week, a report by DBLTAP credited Virtus.pro with an interest in AGO's Michał "snatchie" Rudzki, who has averaged an impressive 1.16 rating on LAN in 2018 and has not yet posted a single below-average tournament rating this year after 13 offline competitions.

IEM Shanghai will run from August 1-6 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center, where eight teams - five invited and three qualified - will square off for $250,000 in prize money. Virtus.pro will attend the event with:

Poland Filip "NEO" Kubski
Poland Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski
Poland Paweł "byali" Bieliński
Poland Michał "MICHU" Müller
Poland Piotr "morelz" Taterka (stand-in)

The only reason they are placed 8th is the fact CSGO is dying.
