rallen completes AGO roster
The 26-year-old player is unveiled as the final piece of the puzzle for the Polish team, which intends to employ a six-man roster moving forward.
AGO have revealed their full lineup for 2021, announcing the signing of Karol "rallen" Rodowicz. The former Kinguin and ARCY player joins the team alongside Michał "snatchie" Rudzki and Paweł "reatz" Jańczak, finishing a big overhaul for the Polish organization.
In addition to their five main players, AGO will also keep Eryk "leman" Kocęba as the sixth player of the squad, looking to follow the model used by Vitality when they brought in Nabil "Nivera" Benrlitom at the end of 2020.
Dominik "GruBy" Swiderski, Brajan "DGL" Lemecha, and Patryk "Sidney" Korab were deemed surplus by AGO at the start of the year, with "The Hawks" deciding to upgrade their lineup during the winter break. snatchie joined on a free transfer after parting ways with Sprout, while reatz moved over from Illuminar, who benched their whole roster ahead of the New Year.
The final move, adding rallen, confirmed the recent rumors about AGO. The 26-year-old rifler joins after a year in which he stood in for c0ntact, Secret, and Illuminar, but his last team was the Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas-led ARCY (Aristocracy), which disbanded in January of 2020.
AGO also revealed some that the 23-year-old leman will be staying on board as the sixth member. Initially expected to make way for the new signings, he will practice with the first team on specific maps and help them out in officials as well, akin to how Vitality eased Nivera into action.
Additionally, AGO still have Miłosz "mhL" Knasiak contracted. The 18-year-old AWP star, that was featured in our "One for the future" series, was benched in September of last year at his request after struggling to handle his academic commitments while practicing with the team.
AGO are now:
Eryk "leman" Kocęba (sixth player)
Mikołaj "miNirox" Michałków (coach)
Miłosz "mhL" Knasiak (benched)
