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.
The weekend was filled with Counter-Strike, as ESG Tours, Group A of the ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier and DreamHack Montreal all took place.
SK Gaming and Virtus.pro will play a soccer match the day after ESL One Cologne next month, and fans will have to buy tickets to see it.
Finn “Karrigan” Andersen summed up the Virtus.pro experience in full during a “Reflections” interview with Duncan “Thorin” Shields:
The Majors provide perhaps the most magical moments in professional Counter-Strike. Whether it’s teams breaking through to win after years of struggle, like Astralis did last month in Atlanta, or the craziness of an individual play or match, it seems everyone has a favorite.
During the Major, Slingshot’s Vince Nairn asked nine pro players what they thought of the Swiss format, and the results were overwhelmingly positive.
For SK Gaming, the ESL One Cologne Major ended in triumph. It secured a back-to-back major victory and with months of excellence has made this the SK era.
