Vitriolic sign former WICKED

The Polish team formerly known as WICKED, has finally found a new home.

As WICKED closed its doors, the Polish top team was without a home and in these rough times, it did not look bright for the two-time ESWC champions. Being linked up with the new MYM, which was later declined, people started wondering, could and house this top team.

The thoughts were many, could it be SK or any other organization picking them up, but today all of the guesses are shot to the ground; as the UK based organization Vitriolic sign the Polish team.

Team captain Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas said following to cadred about signing with Vitriolic:

"We are really happy that after over 3 tough months without organisation we finally found our new home in Vitriolic. After whole year of obstacles, and dissapointments with organisations, we hope that finally we will be able to focus on one thing only, which is winning. We can't say that it was a bad year for us so far, but I think it's fair to say that with support from Vitriolic we should be able to unleash the potential which has been asleep for some time now.

It's going to be a blast to attend international events again and compete against all the best players. We would like to thank everyone for their support and hope that we will put Vitriolic on the ranking map soon. Peace."

The organization already houses a Norwegian team, featuring likes of Sondre "REAL" Svanevik and more. Contacted by, Michael "mikkis" Sokki stated: "Vitriolic will keep us and give us a chance to prove ourselves on the remaining events of 2009. Huge thanks to RGR by giving us another shot after our bad performance at GameGune."

Vitriolic Gaming house following five Polish players:

Poland Filip "Neo" Kubski
Poland Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas
Poland Mariusz "Loord" Cybulski
Poland Łukasz "LUq" Wnęk
Poland Jakub "kuben" Gurczyński

The Polish team are qualified for the European Championship in Extreme Masters IV and could very well be linked with upcoming Global Challenges (next one in Dubai).

2009-09-26 14:06
yeh, but kind of weird that they wouldn't write .no on their official website, dont u think? I guess it's because they will kick them soon.
2009-09-26 14:38
I'm not saying you're wrong I'm just showing that I'm surprised after reading the news here at ;)

Thats sick, Vitriolic house 2 of the European elite!
2009-09-25 23:38
nah just 1
2009-09-25 23:39
the .no team is argueably the #1 team in there country, so I would count them as a European elite team. :)
2009-09-26 00:49
there is an only one CS1.6 team atm... i think they dropped the .no team
2009-09-26 05:51
If you knew the Norwegian counter-strike scene you'd be holding that "European elite"-tone. :p
2009-09-26 13:47
hope they will stay there more than 3 months.

Congrats on finding your new home, Neo and company. :) Best of luck to Vitrolic in the future! Who knows mabye my article that I was trying to reach out to the sponsors/organizations with read it and decided to give them a shot. :D
2009-09-26 00:17
Indeed, you and me are the best bloggers. Okay maybe just me... hahaha no mate, love your blog :)
2009-09-26 00:45
i wish fodder would just disappear off the already got kicked from gotfrag because you're a god damn troll, don't ruin these forums too..
2009-09-26 00:45
Dude seriously, do you look ALL over hltv for FODDER's posts so you can freaking say that hes an excheater and that all american cs players hate him? and yeah that he got kicked out of gotfrag? Get a life will ya
2009-09-26 03:00
Oh, I didn't know he was an ex-cheater. Thanks for letting us know, that kinda made me change my thought about him. :P
2009-09-26 14:07
doesn't matter he doesnt cheat anymore :P
2009-09-26 17:17
So? Once a cheater always a cheater. If I win something big by cheating, then I stop cheating should everyone forgive me? It's that simple?:) Well, it's just to say "I don't cheat anymore!" then, and everything's fine.
2009-09-27 14:33
He didn't win anything big by cheating though...?
2009-09-27 23:41
No? So what? If he's KNOWN as a cheater he must've done something.
2009-09-27 23:42
Na he just cheated online :s and was pretty known in (from what i understood)
2009-09-28 00:05
Well, if you're well known you have a responsibility.
2009-09-28 00:12
Yeah, but you shouldn't change ur pov on someone just because he cheated 3-4 years ago.
2009-09-28 01:48
Now I do, and that's my decision. You really don't realize how much cheaters destroy this society, since it's built partly on honesty.
2009-09-28 23:05
well, u got my point :) rest is up to u
2009-09-28 23:11
Yes I do. :D

If anything, you should be glad that he's left GotFrag if he's that much of a troll. We here at hltv community appreciate his insights and passion about e-Sports. Win-Win for both sides? Cut the man some slack already.
2009-09-26 07:49
Yes - I am very sure your tiny blog reached out to the Vitriolic staff and CEO's and made them open their eyes.
2009-09-26 13:45
Yeah im sure Vitriolic looked at your blog and that was their reason AHAHHAHAHAHA

GL for them. Hope it last or they wont keep their good form.
2009-09-26 01:20
i must admit im quite surprised by this but vitriolic already seem to have been a stable organisation for one 1.6 team and 2 source teams so I trust they can live up to the task of housing this world class team

2009-09-26 01:36
pplese explain/clarify to me. Is there vtL.NO and vtL.PL 1 team real and co., and other team Taz and co.?
2009-09-26 01:38
Yeah, that sounds about right. They will still house their Norwegian team, but now with the addition of ex-WICKED, I'd assume they will now change their focus to supporting this team, but that doesn't mean Real and the other guys are out. :)
2009-09-26 01:47
I'm just glad they found a home. :P
2009-09-26 02:08
ok thank you :) would be cool if both Vitriolic teams made top 10 , ex_wicked is top 3-4 , but I hope Real and team can improve from gamegune, i expected more :D
2009-09-26 03:04
go NEO *-*
2009-09-26 02:24
Vitriolic teams [EU.source and US.source] seem not weak just seeing the names(I don't know results, how long are they together, etc ...), but I guess new addition will give them the most success.I hope for long time, they deserve it. GL HF Golden Five (as Polish guys call them often:)
2009-09-26 02:46
Good luck guys, watching today Luq's interview I really didn't think that they were going to chose a new organisation today. vitrolic will be top 3 in the world for sure.
2009-09-26 02:52
Will? they actualy are, all events at least top 3, exepct ESWC ASIA.

2009-09-26 04:12 or something like this. It will be same like or But it looks like Vitriolic got norwegian team no more.
2009-09-26 09:05
Guess that was it for the norwegian team then? Atleast according to the vtL site :/ (Not official, but kinda looks like it)..
2009-09-26 04:56

I read this statement from Neo: "At the beginning we were searching for an organisation which would be able to fulfill our requirements, which were nothing else than just what we had before in MYM and Wicked. After hearing "no" from everyone we had to keep lowering our expectations. In the end we lowered them a hell of a lot." Looks like they consider themselves to be ten times better and worth ten times more than they actually are. Is it just me or is this mirrored in the community?
2009-09-27 14:12
it is you. as you could read, they were top 3 in every tournament in 09. fnatic,mtw,sk,mouz,and vitrolic, are thoses teams which deserve to earn that money.
2009-09-27 15:33
