After another early exit at a LAN event, Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski will no longer be the in-game leader of Virtus.pro‘s Counter-Strike team.

Snax mentioned the change in a Facebook post Tuesday that also touched on VP’s recent struggles, which include last place finishes at DreamHack Malmo and last week’s ESL One New York. In the post (which has been translated by HLTV), Snax said some of the older players on the team did not adapt well to his desired play style.

“I think my decision to step down is the right one because some people are lacking skill to carry the team,” Snax wrote, according to the translation. “I’ll have freedom to play my own Counter-Strike and I hope it will be more than enough to make it through the groups because lately no one’s been showing up (except for pasha who played very well).”

Snax’s post came at about the same time Virtus.pro’s Filip “NEO” Kubski told Slingshot the team planned to change in-game leaders.

“Snax is not as experienced as I am and TaZ is in that matter,” NEO said. “I think he has learned a lot from that time. Maybe we haven’t had good results, but it’s also important. Who knows how long we’re going to keep playing, and someone will have to step into that role, and I think he has learned a lesson. Now it’s time to move on, and we’ll see what’s coming.”

Virtus.pro will play Group C of the ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier this weekend with Cloud9, EnVyUs and Ninjas in Pyjamas.
