mhL returns to AGO's active roster
The 19-year-old is back in the mix after over a year on the bench.
AGO has announced they are back to a six-man roster as star AWPer Miłosz "mhL" Knasiak has been put back in the active lineup. The 19-year-old had been on the bench since September 2020 when he asked to be removed from the team as he struggled to reconcile his academic responsibilities with his Counter-Strike career.
At the time of his benching in 2020, mhL was the top performer for AGO and he was already turning heads by averaging a 1.18 rating during his time on the team, which contributed to him being featured in our One for the future series.
Since his benching and before returning to activity with AGO, mhL played brief stints with StylDunow, Pompa and Illuminar in the first half of 2021. During that time the young AWPer tallied a strong 1.24 rating while AGO put the 19-year-old on the transfer list as they had no room on the starting lineup at the time, but to no avail.
mhL's return to action comes at a hectic time for AGO, who are undergoing a transitional period with a lot of changes after letting go of Michał "snatchie" Rudzki and Karol "rallen" Rodowicz while bringing on 18-year-old FPL player Szymon "kRaSnaL" Mrozek and their first international recruit, Bulgarian in-game leader Denis "Grashog" Hristov.
The addition of mhL to the active lineup means AGO are now back to a six-man roster as they aim to return to the world ranking's top 30, which they fell out of upon the departures of snatchie and rallen. The chance to see the returning AWPer in action will come in AGO's first ESEA MDL playoff match against Sprout, with kRaSnaL also in the starting lineup.
AGO are now:
