AGO bench mhL

AGO have announced the benching of their main AWPer, Miłosz "mhL" Knasiak, who will be temporarily replaced by the team's backup player, Maciej "F1KU" Miklas.

The 17-year-old AWPer has been moved to an inactive role in the squad and will spend "the next weeks doing individual work" determined by AGO's backroom staff, according to a tweet from the Polish organisation.

mhL is one of the four players who were signed by AGO in September following a lengthy tryout process. Recent results have been less than inspiring for the Polish team, who failed to qualify for IEM Katowice and cut a frustrating figure in the first three open qualifiers for the Europe Minor.

Furlan will assume the main AWP role

Replacing mhL on the roster is backup player F1KU, who stood in for the squad in the first open Minor qualifier, raising eyebrows with a 1.97 rating in the victory against SJ. For the time being, Damian "Furlan" Kislowski will be the designated AWPer of the team, who have been invited to compete in the European closed qualifier for FLASHPOINT, on February 14.

With the adjustments, AGO are now:

Poland Damian "Furlan" Kislowski
Poland Eryk "leman" Kocęba
Poland Dominik "GruBy" Swiderski
Poland Patryk "Sidney" Korab
Poland Maciej "F1KU" Miklas (stand-in)

Poland Miłosz "mhL" Knasiak (benched)

Poland Mikołaj "miNirox" Michałków (coach)

2020-02-12 00:10
Furlan is
2020-02-12 00:20
sidney is IGL - Furlan was IGL when they played with szpero, phr and kap3r :)
2020-02-12 01:23
Wasnt Toao igl at ago "prime" ?
2020-02-12 17:13
Toao was the IGL on the begining but he was changed by furlan after a couple of months. When they played with szpero they were changing IGL's vere often. Now sidney is IGL and Furlan sometimes is helping him a bit but Sidney is main IGL.
2020-02-14 17:56
nope- furlan was and is igl

you really think you can always have good fragging igl in your team? lol
2020-02-12 09:40
No. I'm just saying that "oh hes an IGL ofc he won't frag" is an outdated argument when we have all of the above that I mentioned fragging well in games even tho they IGL.

ofc IGL should frag well
2020-02-12 10:10
Hunden. 20kills per 3 maps , lul. Good igl but by far the worst individual atm
2020-02-12 17:13
The only good IGLs I can think of who don't frag rn are karrigan , golden(he can have games tho) and we still have to see what HUNDEN and daps can do with their teams.
2020-02-12 18:05
Hunden did enough imo. 4 tier4/5 no namers to signing with Mad lions and being a solid tier2 contender.
2020-02-12 20:15
i don't need examples i am just laughing cause it can't be called a freaking era lul
2020-02-20 16:42
It is an era LUL. 1.6 and early CSGO it was never needed for an IGL to frag.No one cared , they were supposed to give out strats and only worry about teammates and calls they would adjust to.
2020-02-20 16:54
Hunden?

Depends on what level youre playing at and where you're trying to go. Non-fragging IGLs will always have a place in the scene, especially in scenes that don't have IGLs at all (NA for example).

Guys, this thing is misleading. mhl asked for benching and its only temporary. Most likely he has troubles at school; as he is just 17 his parents want him to finish it,and as it doesnt seem likely with his current grades he needs to work on that and he will be back

Going inactive for two weeks for individual work? The kid has the highest rating on the team and is the sniper, the most integral part of a team next to the in-game leader. What about the players who are struggling to maintain near a 1.00 rating? Leman has 0.95...

SHiPZ told us that he is not motivated to be on this team anymore. Our organization is not working with not motivated players, so we had to bench him and thus set to transfer. I can wish him good luck in his future career, as I see him a very talented player. And I am looking forward to any upcoming offers and proposals
