byali confirms Virtus.pro exit
On Instagram, byali shed more light on his situation after cybersport.pl had reported on Monday that the Polish player had decided to step down from the team after growing increasingly frustrated with the latest results.
The 25-year-old rejected suggestions that his departure was caused by internal strife during a recent bootcamp, explaining that the players have different visions for the team.
"Nothing bad happened during the bootcamp, we just could not agree on general principles for the team," he wrote.
"I decided to leave without creating any problems."
byali's departure ends a long tenure with Virtus.pro, briefly interrupted towards the end of last year, when he left the team and joined MIKSTURA before returning to the squad together with Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski.
During his five-year stint under the CIS organisation, byali helped the team to pick up several title wins, most notably at the EMS Katowice 2014 Major, ELEAGUE Season 1 and Dreamhack Masters Las Vegas.
Virtus.pro have yet to make an announcement regarding byali's replacement or the future of the squad. In the recent Polish Championship match against the Izako Boars, the team fielded EURONICS' Michal "OKOLICIOUZ" Glowaty as a stand-in.
