AGO merge with x-kom
The move sees the remaining two AGO players, Damian "Furlan" Kislowski and Dominik "GruBy" Swiderski, link up with the x-kom squad, producing a seven-man line-up that will be trimmed down via a selection process that will be completed by the end of September.
In a subsequent tweet, x-kom AGO Head of Esports Maciej Opielski revealed that tryouts "will not be limited" to players from these two teams, with "a dozen people" expected to come under the microscope.
The players will be selected based on not just performance but also their ability to function in a team that should be "a mix of competence, personality and determination in achieving goals," according to an official statement.
AGO announced on Thursday their plans to part ways with Tomasz "phr" Wójcik, Grzegorz "SZPERO" Dziamałek and Kacper "kaper" Słoma following a run of poor results. The team had recently finished 5th-6th at the ESL Polish Championship Spring 2019 Finals, held in Katowice.
x-kom had recently bolstered their ranks with the signings of Paweł "innocent" Mocek and Paweł "reatz" Jańczak, reaching the 43rd spot in the ranking in June 17's update. They are slated to participate in the next two international tournaments that will be held in Poland: the Good Game League, on July 13-14, and the Games Clash Masters, from September 20-22.
x-kom AGO have the following squad:
