AGO parts ways with phr, SZPERO, kaper
Three AGO players will be leaving the flock as the team looks to shuffle the roster, with Tomasz "phr" Wójcik, Grzegorz "SZPERO" Dziamałek and Kacper "kaper" Słoma set to be free agents as of July 1st.
The radical change comes as a result of unsatisfactory results, with the team's coach Mikołaj "miNirox" Michałków stating that the team was "strong individually, but unable to function as a single organism" due to "a different vision of the team and training".
AGO's CEO and Sports Director also commented on the change, revealing that they will be looking at non-associated players and players from other teams to complete their roster with:
"The organization enters the next stage of its development, which is the start of the process of selecting players for the CS:GO team. The process will be based on the experience gained and conclusions drawn from two years of observation. The selection of non-associated players and players from other teams will be aimed at selecting people who will determine the new strength of our organization. We do not want to identify players who have only high skills in the game, but to choose the optimal choice, which is a kind of a mixture of game competence, personality and determination in achieving goals" - Jakub Szumielewicz, CEO
"For nine months we have been collecting information that has allowed us to determine what we expect from players and what we want to stand for in the future in terms of what we mean by development and leadership. We know that in today's line-up the path we have taken is not possible to follow, so we decide to change our roster" - Sebastian Krzepota, Sports Director of AGO Esports
phr, SZPERO, and kaper will be representing the team until July 1st, helping them with their final games this month, after which they will be released from AGO and become free agents. With that, AGO will go down to two players, Damian "Furlan" Kislowski and Dominik "GruBy" Swiderski, who have been representing the organization since July 2017.
As of July 1st, AGO will have the following players:
