With a heavy heart and a long way ahead, former Virtus.pro’s co-founder revealed his further plans in a statement on Facebook. The 31-year-old didn’t find it difficult to acknowledge the team’s decision. In a gentleman’s agreement, Wiktor ‘TaZ’ Wojtas called it “best for both the parties.”

After the recent announcement of Virtus.pro dropping TaZ from their active lineup, there has been roar on social media. This is not your regular transfer or a usual change of player. This was a legacy dying in the process of a roster change. Wiktor Wojtas is not a foreign name for the Counter-Strike community. Instead, gamers, who followed CS 1.6, can very well analyze the contribution of this legendary player to the Polish CS scene.

TaZ full statement

As of today I will no longer be playing for Virtus.pro lineup. The team decided that I don’t fit in their plans, and I only respect that and want to wish them best of luck in the future! I feel that it is a change for best, for both parties. Changes are needed in life, and I’m looking forward to challenges ahead of me. This is not the last you hear of me. I never had problems with motivation, but I can tell you now – I’m more happy and motivated than ever!

Virtus.pro will continue their journey ahead with MICHU, which they’ve rented from Kinguin for a month.
