Hand injury sidelines byali for 6-8 weeks

Izako Boars will be forced to play without their in-game leader for nearly two months.

The Polish organization founded by streamer Piotr "⁠izak⁠" Skowyrski has announced on Sunday that the team's most notable player and captain, Paweł "⁠byali⁠" Bieliński, will have to take time away from Counter-Strike. The 27-year-old Pole suffered a hand injury, and will undergo an operation which together with recovery is expected to keep him out of action for six to eight weeks.

Izako Boars have fielded Wojciech "⁠darchevile⁠" Klęba as a stand-in for the ESEA Cash Cup, but haven't commented on a long-term solution for the spot.

byali will be helping the team from the coach slot

"For the time being, I will be with Izako Boars in the coach slot, taking turns with Hyper," byali wrote on Twitter. "Unfortunately, I can't hold a mouse in this plaster, so I'm out of the game for ~2 months."

The Katowice 2014 Major winner with Virtus.pro jokingly clarified that the injury didn't come from hitting a desk and thanked his supporters for the kind words he received.

k0nfig to be out of action for at least 4-6 weeks

Izako Boars are currently ranked 88th in the world and are competing in ESEA Advanced Season 39 as well as domestic leagues. Their best recent placings came within the Malta Vibes tournament series, finishing top 4 in Knockout Series 1 and top 8 in Knockout Series 3.

byali's absence will come as another big hit to Izako Boars. The team seemingly hasn't been able to recover from the departures of Kamil "⁠siuhy⁠" Szkaradek and Hubert "⁠szejn⁠" Światły to mouz NXT, having dropped from their peak rank of #42 they held in February.

Izako Boars now have the following roster

Poland Mateusz "⁠TOAO⁠" Zawistowski
Poland Daniel "⁠STOMP⁠" Płomiński
Poland Arek "⁠Vegi⁠" Nawojski
Poland Karol "⁠Enzo⁠" Lasota

Poland Paweł "⁠byali⁠" Bieliński (injury)

Poland Bartosz "⁠Hyper⁠" Wolny (coach)

2021-10-24 21:53
idk why, but few weeks ago they decided to give it a go, and they've been winning most of their games ever since. what's funnier is the fact that they wanted to bench toao and enzo, and had other players ready to join the team, but because of their recent form rise, management cancelled it

They realized that many many Mix teams leaded by Byali as IGL, for example Mikstura or Adwokacik were really good and Just as only the Mix squads they have been better than most teams on Polish scene

Shit happens in life ,also holding mouse whole day stressing u nerves and can be cause of carpal canal syndrome ,which can cause pain in hand and sleepless nights,also make u palm and fingers numb ,hard to even make fist. U live with it rest of your life,operation makes it more bearable ,but eventually u got to go thru operation again with time

Mans sidelined for way longer already I‘m watching my fair share of lower tier cs but I didn’t know he is still competing, this is not really newsworthy IMO Although I wish him a fast recovery
