pashaBiceps remains on board as AGO tryouts reach final stage

Only six players remain as possible additions to AGO's lineup, which is currently comprised of just two players, Dominik "⁠GruBy⁠" Swiderski and Damian "⁠Furlan⁠" Kislowski.

AGO have been running a series of try-outs ever since pairing up with x-kom as the organization's main sponsor. Paweł "⁠innocent⁠" Mocek's team, who had played under the x-kom banner, were initially to play for AGO, but they decided to step down after the new merger, eventually finding a home in Illuminar.

Following Tomasz "⁠phr⁠" Wójcik, Kacper "⁠kaper⁠" Słoma, and Grzegorz "⁠SZPERO⁠" Dziamałek's removal, AGO's lineup was left to just two players, GruBy and Furlan, and a rotation of players have since been brought on to try out for the team.

pashaBiceps is in the final round of try-outs with AGO

Jarosław "⁠pashaBiceps⁠" Jarząbkowski was brought on with Patryk "⁠Sidney⁠" Korab and Adrian "⁠SAYN⁠" Łączyński to try out one month ago, joining a slew of other players in observation. With pashaBiceps and Sidney still standing from the aforementioned trio, the remaining four players left in consideration for the three open spots on the roster are Maciej "⁠F1KU⁠" Miklas, Grzegorz "⁠jedqr⁠" Jędras, Eryk "⁠leman⁠" Kocęba, and Miłosz "⁠mhL⁠" Knasiak, the latter two having already been part of official play with AGO, helping the team finish in third place at the Polish Esport League Spring 2019 Finals where they lost to Virtus.pro in the semi-finals.

The five players that were also being monitored but were cut before the last round of trials are SAYN, Wojciech "⁠Prism⁠" Zięba, Kamil "⁠reiko⁠" Cegiełko, Olek "⁠hades⁠" Miskiewicz, and Szymon "⁠Crityourface⁠" Pluta, who all will receive personal feedback regarding their time with the organization.

The official statement from AGO reads as follows:

"We are after an intensive period of collecting information about the individual potential and current state of the players. We would like to thank all the participants very much for their commitment and professional approach to the implementation of the requirements set by x-kom AGO.

"From now on, we move on to the observation stage, where we will focus on the implementation of tactical tasks and teamwork skills. The requirements will be matched to the potential of each of the five players in order to find the optimal playing style for the target line-up."

The following players enter the final stage of the tryout phase:

Poland Jarosław "⁠pashaBiceps⁠" Jarząbkowski

Poland Miłosz "⁠mhL⁠" Knasiak

Who are you to judge him or tell him what to do with his life? The polish scene is a shadow of what it was, but obviously pasha is still capable of competing at the top domestically. He has a wealth of game sense and experience to contribute to a team and is doing what he loves
2019-08-27 11:41
1 reply
Name one relevant team, national or international that would want or has even expressed even the dimmest spark of interest for Pasha in the last 3+ years? I'd be willing to wait but the reality is nobody is interested, AGO, a fringe T2 team is only interested in him for his brand, which he is actively diminishing by continuing to play terrible CS. Your whole "wealth of game sense" and "experience" doesn't mean shit in today's CSGO scene.

Indeed, Ago lost tons of fans. They have social media man on facebook, p4kay. One of Aristocracy(?) fan sit with Ago fans on polish league match. And he was shouting to fu*k him off and other offensive worlds to him and enemy team. Also often he was very offensive in his post on fb. After that drama, nobody like Ago in PL. They should kick that toxic man, but he still is on fb. Sry for drunk englando
2019-08-26 22:01
mhL is pretty much sure since he is the only awper from this 6 (I dont belive they'd take pasha for this role). 2 last players have to be aimer and support aimer: fiku - more risky choice but has big chances to become star-player rly quickly ; sidney - good, depedable, more expierenced but might turn out to be too passive. support: pasha if they want more expierence and fans, jedqr if they want solid 1+ rating roster which is much more likely to win somethin I would be very suprised if they take leman, he doesnt seem to have much to offer in comparison to jedqr, sidney and f1ku
