mousesports are contemplating benching their recent acquisition of Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski and bringing back Martin "STYKO" Styk to the starting line-up, according to VPEsports. The report came only a day after mousesports elimination at the StarSeries i-League CS:GO Season 6 at the hands of BIG.
The former Virtus.pro star joined the team in June 2017 (replacing STYKO on the main roster), starting off well and helping them reach two semi-finals: at ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2018 and DreamHack Masters Stockholm 2018. Since then, however, the team was swept away from the FACEIT Major — London 2018 New Legends Stage in a quick 0:3. The results rollercoaster continued with a victory at ESL One New York 2018 and now a quick elimination at the StarSeries event.
According to VPEsports.com, Snax was not invited to a team meeting on Wednesday in which the current situation was discussed. STYKO, who remains contracted to the organisation, after being briefly loaned to Cloud9, is the one to replace Snax if the player will indeed be benched.
Its a pity they did not give it a little more time to snax. I think that our team showed all these years with the money is important, but not the most important— paszaBiceps (@paszaBiceps) October 11, 2018
Snax's former long-time teammate Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski commented on the reported news, disapproving the decision.
