Grashog joins AGO

The Bulgarian in-game leader is the organisation's first non-Polish player.

Bulgarian IGL Denis "⁠Grashog⁠" Hristov will be joining AGO's ranks, the organisation has announced, the move coming mere days after the release of Michał "⁠snatchie⁠" Rudzki and Karol "⁠rallen⁠" Rodowicz.

Adding 22-year old Grashog marks a departure from an all-Polish roster for the first time in the AGO organisation's history. Recently he has regularly participated in the ESL Polish Championship and the Polish Esport League, representing most notably Pompa, among others.

Grashog will be AGO's first international players

Upon joining, Grashog spoke of his gratefulness for the opportunity:

"I'm glad that I will have the opportunity to work in an environment that gives me ideal conditions to develop as an In-Game Leader. For most of my career, I've had to build and lead teams on my own, and now I'll have the help of more experienced teammates and the entire coaching staff - thank you x-kom AGO for giving me this chance!"

The arrival of Grashog is a continuation of a period of upheaval for the Polish squad, who also recently added 18-year old FPL player Szymon "⁠kRaSnaL⁠" Mrozek to the roster.

The raft of changes come at the end of a mixed 9-month period for AGO, the outgoing lineup managing highs such as a top-two finish at Snow Sweet Snow 2 amongst a field including teams like NIP and Gambit, and the repeated lows of failing to qualify for top-tier events.

You can next catch AGO in action on Monday, October 11, at 20:30 as they take on Lyngby Vikings in the playoffs of the Elisa Invitational Fall.

The current roster is as follows:

Bulgaria Denis "⁠Grashog⁠" Hristov
Poland Damian "⁠Furlan⁠" Kislowski
Poland Maciej "⁠F1KU⁠" Miklas
Poland Eryk "⁠leman⁠" Kocęba
Poland Szymon "⁠kRaSnaL⁠" Mrozek

Poland Mikołaj "⁠miNirox⁠" Michałków (Coach)

They did not release them. Simply snatchie and rallen decided not to renew the contract. Organization actually offered them a contract but I guess they want to follow dycha and hades approach and find international team with higher chance of getting into top10. AGO probably wants to bring new talents and develop they roster. I think rallen is too long on the scene and too experienced for that. I think he doesn't want to wait for his team mates to catch up with him and he's looking more into playing with other experienced players.

i mean adding a young igl is never a bad long term prospect however fraging wise he is meh at best and after losing snatchie and furlan (their carries) I doubt results will improve. Snatchie/Furlan were key players and i don´t think any other player will rise to their they really need mhL to come back for the squad to have top30 firepower but i doubt that will happen

all but reatz (and now snatchie&rallen) were in january when there was a big shuffle on the polish scene reatz left on his own, didn't want to extend since he wasn't content with being the 6th player So yeah numbers seem high but once you look at the context you're exaggerating imo
