Jaroslaw “pashaBiceps” Jarzabkowski might be returning to the pro Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scene. 

The CSGO legend is rumored to be joining Team Liquid’s new academy roster, as was first reported by PolishLeaks. pashaBiceps joined Team Liquid as a streamer in August. 

This wouldn’t be out of the question for Team Liquid. They’ve had CSGO rosters in the past with well-known European members, including Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev from Ukraine. They also have Dota 2, PUBG, and Valorant teams competing in the region. 

It’s possible that Team Liquid is looking to have its academy roster based in Europe as well. pashaBiceps would most likely be joined by other players in the Polish scene or the surrounding region, since his former Virtus.pro teammates are already signed to different CSGO rosters. 

pasha continues Virtus.pro legacy in CSGO

At its peak, Virtus.pro was one of the best CSGO teams in the world. The Polish squad competed against such teams as Fnatic and Ninjas in Pyjamas for the world’s top spot. While they were big, pashaBiceps was among their standout players. He would switch between rifler and AWPer, showing great versatility and a capacity for filling multiple roles depending on what his team most needed from him.

When pashaBiceps left Virtus.pro, he also left the professional CSGO scene entirely. He has since been focused on full-time streaming. According to PolishLeaks, however, pashaBiceps is reportedly going to become the Liquid Academy’s star player, competing in the Polish Esport League. 

Team Liquid and pashaBiceps have not confirmed the signing at this time. There’s little doubt that fans would be excited to see pasha competing again, especially if he’s able to achieve a high level in doing so.
