AGO has officially switched a total of four players for the rest of the CS GO odds 2022 season. The Polish based organization signed former Wisła Kraków AWP main Michał “snatchie” Rudzki,ex Wisła Kraków rifle main Grzegorz “jedqr” Jędras, former Illuminar Gaming IGL Tomasz “phr” Wójcik, and lastly brought back Eryk “leman” Kocęba to the active roster.
The lineup will be then completed by Damian “Furlan” Kislowski, who has been playing previously for AGO in the last five years. Snatchie and phr had a pretty well rounded stint with the organization around 2018 playing with Furlan, having achieved 16th place in the world according to HLTV’s rankings after incredible showings at StarSeries i-League season 5 and the DreamHack Open Summer event.
The statement is just confirmation of snatchie, phr, jedqr, and leman’s returning to AGO as they did play the IEM Rio Major Europe Regional Major Ranking (RMR) open qualifier stage with AGO around August. The team was pretty close to making the Europe RMR in the first two open qualifiers, finishing between 9th and 16th place, while then sadly exiting in the Round of 64 in the last two open qualifiers available.
The signings of snatchie and jedqr were made after Wisła Kraków closed its esports section of the organization in July, while of course releasing their entire CS GO lineup. Phr is a different case, as he spent the last three years of his career outside of AGO, while playing for Polish based and European international rosters such as Virtus Pro, Finest, and his most recent stint in Illuminar.
The brand new AGO roster is one of the teams attending ESL Challenger League season 42 Europe set to start in September, a $50,000 prize pool CS GO league that gives the winner a place at the ESL Pro League Conference season 17.
Now going into Aurora, Viktor “Lack1” Boldyrev, Aleksandr “KaiR0N-” Anashkin, Artem “RAiLWAY” Gradovich, Amin “sugaR” Azimov, Evgeny “delus1onn” Plottsov, and coach Sergey “starix” Ischuk will continue to play together after they grabbed a spot under the Aurora brand in the IEM Rio Major Europe Regional Major Ranking (RMR).
The CIS international team achieved one of the spots open in the first open qualifier and will retain the same roster for the Europe RMR set to start in October, they will look to continue playing as “Aurora”, at least for the time being.
Out of all the players currently in place, the most known ones on the roster are Lack1, who played for Entropiq, and KaiR0N the former superstar player coming from Team Spirit academy. Starix, however, is likely more famous than anybody on Aurora.
Starix made quite a roccus around 2020 after he was actually banned for exploiting the now infamous spectator coaching bug in CS GO, a scandal that included 36 other coaches. He served a 10 month ban from any Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC)’s events and had to sit out two CS GO Majors for it. Starix is now free to attend Valve sponsored events after the end of the PGL Antwerp Major in May.
Aurora are currently showing their skills in the CCT Central Europe Series one, an online CS GO tournament based in Europe. They will return to play on Friday, September 2nd against 1WIN at 12pm CT.
