NEO, TaZ to spearhead new project

Filip "NEO" Kubski and Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas have announced that they will stick together in a new team, with a recruiting process already underway.

The Polish pair had reunited in December after almost two years apart, briefly playing together in a team called ARCY, who ended up disbanding in January following roster instability and a series of sub-par displays.

NEO and TaZ are building a new Polish team

Details about the project are still scarce at this stage, though in a press release it is explained that "a recruitment process is being conducted to establish cooperation with the most talented and promising players in the Polish CS:GO scene."

"It’s obvious that Neo and I needed time to work through our past," TaZ said in a statement. "When you have played with someone for so many years, spent so much time together and shared moments of both glory and defeat, it’s difficult to sort things out.

"Time has worked in our favor though. It showed that the bond we have is much bigger than only the game we play together."

NEO and TaZ played together for 14 years on iconic Polish teams such as Pentagram, Meet Your Makers and Virtus.pro, winning some of the biggest trophies in the history of the franchise, including one CS:GO Major, in 2014.

The pair split in February 2018, when TaZ was benched by Virtus.pro, who later sold him to Kinguin. Later that year, the CIS-based organisation also removed NEO, who went on to play for FaZe as a stand-in between May and September 2019, making his final appearance for the team at the StarLadder Major.

2020-02-07 11:56
ex6tenz thought the same but hes a bot tho
2020-02-07 12:57
ex6 never understood csgo mechanics and the concept of peeking, as it's quite the opposite to any other fps. holding an angle is an disadvantage, ex6 never realized this / failed to adapt. widepeeks/jigglepeeks ftw - once those 1.6/source players understand this simple (and honestly pretty dumb) mechanic they start to improve
2020-02-07 13:11
As a 1.6 player this is what kills my game the most, the inability to hold angles, you're right jiggling and swinging wins.
2020-02-07 13:28
exactly this.
2020-02-07 13:31
This is generally why I quit (I'm also an old fuck). I understood the jiggles and movement, and how holding angles didn't work the same, and while I adapted to it when I first played (I was also confident and aggressive) I realized I just hated the way it felt. But it's weird that you can see players who haven't figured it out. GO plays on LAN the way Source played online, where the peeker had the advantage. It didn't work in 1.6 because bad peeks meant getting spammed through the wall, where in Source/GO that defensive advantage is mostly gone.

At first glance you would think that when attacker has advantage, the game is more entertaining but I think it is the other way around. When you watch old 1.6 frag movies you see so many nice CT angle holding multi headshot rounds (not to mention the awesome headshot death animation of the player model) compared to CS:GO. It also makes sense that the player holding an angle has advantage because - well thats just natural. Would be great to see this change in some future CS version.
2020-02-07 21:22
yes, I totally agree. It would make the game less random aswell, which I would be a fan of. maybe with source 2? :D
2020-02-08 11:29
If it was so easy to "come back" these guys would have already. There is a reason neo sucked on faze and why ARCY sucked as well.
2020-02-07 18:40
I feel like the problem is mental, he probably over-analyzed his play. one has to accept that there are times in cs where you just die
2020-02-08 11:30
Just wanted to say that it's rare to see balanced/well thought comments like yours on this website. Hopefully it will be the default one day, keep being exemplary :)

TaZ amongst all others cares too much for his community and he wants to stay as long as he can to raise new players and ofc cuz of need for money. He is doing a good thing to poland cs, no other player is doing that currently. Even if they play bad, at this point they dont play for some big tournament wins. Just to find new poland talents and teach them.

TaZ is by far the most ambitious CS player ever. There's literally no other player who believes in victory of his team as much as he does. He also doesn't really care about the money as long as rivalization is honest and he can put all his heart into it. And he's the oldest guy to still play at competitive level too. 33 years and still rocking. I honestly hope his team will make it to the major once more, same for f0rest and the rest of Ninjas in Dignitas

cant u read what i said from the start ? i said all pros start to lose their skill around 3° yo like the players i have listed
2020-02-07 14:04
It's not about losing skill.. It's about life happening and not wanting/being able to dedicate enough hours with the desire to be better then others. I can imagine when you do something for long enough it can be hard to find the drive. I can't say that I wasn't a better aimer as a kid, for sure my reflexes were better but I also did a lot of stupid mistakes like overextending and overstaying or not understanding what my input actually does in the team I play in (is it positive or negative f.e.). So in other things you gain and in others you become much more dependant of practice. If the hours aren't there, most likely you won't be s1mple or zywoo.
2020-02-07 15:46
So according to your logic every footballplayer that doesnt play for Man City/Liverpool/Bayern/Juventus/Barcelona or Real Madrid should retire because they can't win CL? That would be great for the sport, nice logic man!

It's probably burning out for most players from having to play like 10 hours a day. But physically they definitely could play well in their 40's if they had motivation and didn't get burned out and retire. Only disadvantage older people have is they have on average slightly worse reaction time.

TaZ and neo played 15 years together, they are at point where they should retire, but they wont cuz they care too much about their community. They won every major tournament in cs 1.6 and got a major here in csgo. They had enough. Just like f0rest gtr xizt in dignitas, all played together from 1.6. They are here to have fun before they retire and try to win something.

They are not here to win big tournaments, they are here to find new polish talents and guide them alongside making some money. Tell me who else besides TaZ cares about his community like that? They see that polish scene is dead and they are trying to do something about it.

i accept them as legends but i dont think this project will go anywhere. they shouldve pulled of the "dignitas approach" and gather the whole crew or just retire IMO
2020-02-07 12:01
+1 for fist part -1 for retire The thing is we dont really have a young players who can qualify to a major (from eu quals at least)
2020-02-07 12:22
i think there are a lot of good players from poland e.g. MICHU, dycha, gruby, innocent looking good lately as well... i dont follow the polish scene too much in my opinion taz and neo should pass their knowledge to the young players, maybe as coach or IGL but both of them in the same team, i dont see it work

Honestly? Just another example of "cant do anything else, so ill try this again and again". Neo in his last stint i noticed was legit bad, TaZ was ok for T2(T3) CS. I mean if they wanna bring back snax pasha byali and play for the lulz, so be it, whatever. But there is not enough talent in Poland to carry them even to T2 imo. And most likely all good players are under contract anyway, arent they...

Nice. For those people who say they should retire, why? They're obviously not aiming to become #1 or even a top 10 team. If they can be 30-40 range they will have plenty of leagues online to play and play lans every now and then while still making decent living.

Its not about age yet, what they are missing? reaction time? In F1 where this aspect is very important drivers are getting titles past their thirties very often. Its all about motivation.
2020-02-07 16:09
80% of cs is reaction time and muscle memory. Two things that go quickly with age. They also never adapted to the ever changing cs meta in their dying days of the scene. No one is saying they can't be good. They can't be great anymore at that age tho. They aren't going to consistently out play 20 year olds on the server. Maybe here and there but they won't do it consistently.

It makes me laugh that so many people here want them to retire. Ofc most of these ppl are in their early 20+ age. So many of you still dont understand that eSport in general has changed and in next few years we will have players around 35 years old still competing in some t1/t2 events. I will just remind you that 80 % of us (players today) didnt even have internet at home 15-20 years ago. Look at salarys in some t2/t3 teams and compare them to 2005-2010 for example. The reason for retirement should be the fact that they can`t compete at T1/T2 events for ever? Nowdays you have so much t2/t3 teams/leauges/tournaments with some good prize money. If u still can pull out some good numbers against those teams, u have some good motivation and energy, at least 2-3 k euro salary per month, still big fanbase and room to grow with younger talents why should you retire LOL. Not to mentioned that players like Neo and Taz were playing for free in 1.6 times for year or more? As cs community here we should respect and cheer for them isntead of "grandpa Taz retire pls".
