finds replacement for TOAO in new player Vegi

Steven Rondina • April 17, 20:11 has found a new fifth man for its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster.

The organization announced that it has officially signed Arek “Vegi” Nawojski to the team. He replaces Mateusz “TOAO” Zawistowski, who was deactivated in March after just three months.

Vegi is a fresh face on a veteran team. The player first popped up in professional CS:GO in 2017 competing in various European regional events. He found a steady home in Polish esports organization PACT, playing with them throughout 2018.

He was officially brought into the fold in early April as a stand-in for the Kalashnikov Cup 2. He continued playing with the team as’s schedule became more hectic, competing at events like the VulkanBet Invitational and Winners League Season 2. The team evidently liked him enough to bring him aboard indefinitely.

But while the team may enjoy playing with Vegi, their recent struggles haven’t turned around just yet.

Despite being one of the most storied brands in CS:GO, has struggled mightily over the last 18 months. The team quickly washed out of the ELEAGUE Major: Boston, which prompted a series of roster changes that saw almost every member of its legendary squad released. Those troubles have resulted in going from being a staple of top CS:GO events to a regular disappointment in the open qualifiers.

Vegi’s addition hasn’t reversed those fortunes yet, which saw the lineup wash out early from events like Charleroi Esports 2019 and fail to qualify for DreamHack Open Tours.

With Vegi joining, now has a full roster that includes tenured players Paweł “byali” Bieliński and Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski, as well as more recent additions Michał “MICHU” Müller and Michał “snatchie” Rudzki. The team has been very active over recent weeks, so expect to see the Polish side in action throughout the spring season.
