byali confirms Virtus.pro exit

Paweł "⁠byali⁠" Bieliński has confirmed that he is no longer part of Virtus.pro's active line-up.

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.

byali leaves Virtus.pro

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.

With byali's departure, Virtus.pro have:

Poland Michał "⁠MICHU⁠" Müller
Poland Michał "⁠snatchie⁠" Rudzki
Poland Janusz "⁠Snax⁠" Pogorzelski
Poland Arek "⁠Vegi⁠" Nawojski

Poland Jakub "⁠kuben⁠" Gurczynski (coach)

2019-05-01 22:59
btw the worst game to ever get such a big playerbase... i do not understand how such a bad game could ever get any popularity... maxing fps to what ever number makes a certain gun better.... clunky movement, most retarded game EVER!
2019-05-01 23:12
no
2019-05-02 00:22
The gun play is way more fun than csgo or any FPS for that matter, but yes the character movement feels fat as fk, the optimization is terrible, not to mention the huge amount of RNG involved in the process of the game that determines so much of who dies and who lives. It easily could’ve been toned down to an acceptable rate if they want to, but they didn’t, cus blueballs are ran by a bunch of gullible idiots. Terrible game that got super popular. Could’ve been even more popular, and deservesly so, if it was done right.

Yes. Although there is heritage in CSGO with Poland, when you are such a prestigious org such as VP, you need to get away. A sad reality.

Why? -byali is an upgrade

AdreN puts game in another level, we will be blessed if we ever see a player with his skill and passion for the game again. Niko breaks the records, s1mple breaks the records. AdreN breaks the rules. You can keep your statistics. I prefer magic.

Then don't act like you are a fan / follower of polish cs scene. Every decent polish player know him and every follower of the polish scene know him. If you don't know him, then you are simply not knowing anything about the polish scene. If no one would know him, then how did he gat a trial in VP? magic? Harry Potter?
2019-05-01 21:01
Sure every follower of the polish scene know him, what a bullshit. Literally everyone was asking on stream/hltv who the hell is this guy. He was not even taken under consideration last time (sobol, vegi, goofy were the only ones). Btw VP owner is not going to spend more money on polish players who are quite expensive to buy from their contracts after these tragic results, so they're left with... well yikes.

You just know nothing about your country scene in csgo, just like other pseudo experts on twitch chat. Thats why i said every follower of the scene know him, bcs YOU and twitch chat experts from poland, are not followers of the scene.

Sign free agents not from Poland: igl: flusha/Acilion awp: draken/smooya/JuGi/NaTo entry: suNny lurk: k1oshima support: bodyy/USTILO coach: Johnta Easy top-20 team Just imagine it. P.S. I prefer: flusha - IGL with 1.05+ rating NaToSaphiX - AWPer with 1.15+ rating suNny - amazing rifler with 1.15+ rating k1oshima - good lurker with 1.10+ rating bodyy - not bad support with 0.95+ rating, but 65%+ KAST

Just imagine assembling a team based on ratings.

Rating is an indicator of your effectiveness in a match, the ability to win back the majority in each round. If you assemble a team of 5 HUNDENS, enjoy your tier3 level team ... But I, on the basis of free agents, suggested creating a team with a good captain, sniper, rifflers ... All roles are distributed. And the potential to break into the top 10. More questions?

First they terminate his contract and let him go, then he sign a new contract and re-joins, and now they let him go again? Nice management
2019-05-02 00:08
Management have him a free hand, it was his only decisions to leave team

Virtus.pro need to just release the team at this point. They're wasting too many resources at this point, and should focus on their successful DOTA team which are 10x more successful than any Polish CS roster at the moment. (inb4 bullied for me being uk noscene xd)
