In an Instagram post, Byali has confirmed that he has departed from the Virtus.pro active lineup.
The move was first reported by Cybersport.pl, which stated that Byali was set to depart the roster as he was “unhappy with the team’s results”, putting an end to speculations which stated that internal conflict during a boot camp had not fueled his decision to quit the active lineup.
His exit marks an end to a legacy dominated by accolades such as EMS Katowice 2014 Major, ELEAGUE Season 1 and Dreamhack Masters Las Vegas.
The rumours about Byali’s replacement were correct as the Polish side played with Michal “OKOLICIOUZ” Glowaty from EURONICS.
In his own Instagram post, Byali stated “Te potężne zakola kończą dziś 25 lat. Dzięki wszystkim za życzonka, te na priv jak i te w komentarzach na Virtus.pro fanpage. Pozdro 💪🏻 fot. @hltvorg”
“Nothing bad happened during the bootcamp, we just could not agree on general principles for the team,”
“I decided to leave without creating any problems.”
With byali leaving, Virtus.pro are down to:
- Michał “MICHU” Müller
- Michał “snatchie” Rudzki
- Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski
- Arek “Vegi” Nawojski
- Jakub “kuben” Gurczynski (coach)
