AGO open to offers for mhL
The up-and-coming Polish sniper is ready to compete professionally again.
AGO announced on Thursday that they are looking for a new home for Miłosz "mhL" Knasiak. The 19-year-old sniper, who was featured in our 'One for the future' article series, has been on the bench since September, stepping down from the lineup to focus on his academic commitments.
"Miłosz has recently contacted us and declared his will to return to the game," AGO said in a statement, explaining that they can't fit the player in their own lineup at the moment, and don't wish to hold him back. "We cannot allow mhL to spend this time on the bench, being ready, so we are looking for a team for our 19-year-old sniper, in which he could spread his wings after his maturity break."
The Polish organization explained that their CS:GO lineup follows a "six-month rule", which entails a half-year period of stability within the roster. "Thanks to this, players are sure of their position in the team and can focus entirely on training and competition. After this period, it's time to take stock."
With the end of their current period two months away, AGO has decided against experimenting with mhL, putting him up for transfer. Additionally, the AWP position on AGO is currently occupied by Michał "snatchie" Rudzki who boasts a team-high 1.15 rating in the last three months, proving pivotal in their climb to No. 28 in the world ranking.
Since his benching in AGO seven months ago, mhL recorded 39 maps played with Polish mix teams Poland and StylDunow and continued to put up numbers, averaging a 1.20 rating. During his tenure in AGO from July 2019 to September 2020, the youngster averaged a 1.18 rating and went below-average at just one event - his final tournament with the squad, ESL Pro League Season 12 Europe.
