To stand-in for Snax in ESEA MDL
July 1, 2018
The polish organization announced that morelz wil stand-in for Snax in Virtus.pro's ESEA MDL matches.
ANALYSIS
The 23-year-old is currently standing in for Virtus.pro's starting player, Snax, due to "personal issues." The news comes as Virtus.pro currently sit at the bottom half of the ESEA MDL Season 28 Europe with three wins from eight matches. The organization has not released any further details regarding as to why Snax initially left the ESEA roster in the first place -- stirring up more rumors of the 24-year-old's future with Virtus.pro.
Officially signs with VP
March 23, 2018
Virtus.pro have claimed the rights to MICHU after closing a deal on the transfer of former captain, TaZ, the organization has announced.
ANALYSIS
Over a month ago, MICHU was set for a trial period with Virtus.pro after being on loan from Kinguin. The 21-year-old has completed two events for Virtus.pro at IEM Katowice and StarSeries i-League Season 4, and is currently in the group stage at the V4 Future Sports Festival. With MICH taking the void of TaZ, the former captain was still hungry for competition and linked up with Kinguin, which created a transfer agreement between both organizers.
To form team with Kinguin
March 5, 2018
Kinguin are looking to form a whole new Polish lineup surrounding former Virtus.pro player, TaZ, according to a report from Flickshot.fr.
ANALYSIS
A month ago, Virtus.pro parted ways with their captain and long-term member, TaZ, after several lackluster performances in 2018 and a harsh campaign throughout 2017. With the 31-year-old still wanting to compete, however, he'll soon take the stage in something other than a Virtus.pro uniform. TaZ has his eyes set on joining Kinguin, who has recently fallen off the radar as being one of the top Polish teams in the region, being replaced by the likes of AGO and Pride. The team has struggled to find consistency as well as a solid leader since the departure of MICHU to Virtus.pro on loan. Two Pride members are expected to join TaZ to make a full Polish line-up, where the Poles of Kinguin look to top the region.
Benched by VP
February 6, 2018
Virtus.pro has announced that long-term member, TaZ, will be placed on the bench.
ANALYSIS
Virtus.pro make the move following a disastrous showing at the recent ELEAGUE Boston Major with a 0-3 exit in The New Legends stage while only winning just sixteen rounds overall. Prior to the Major, TaZ has also endured a treacherous campaign following several groups stage exits such as DreamHack Masters Malmo and ESL One: Cologne. The Polish Plow did end up second at the ELEAGUE Major: Atlanta and followed up with a win at DreamHack Masters Las Vegas. This will be the first player change to happen to Virtus.pro since the team picked up the core in early 2014. The organization mentioned that TaZ does have the option to field other options as MICHU will stand-in for Virtus.pro during STLV and IEM Katowice for up to one month.
Set to be replaced
January 25, 2018
TaZ has been informed by Virtus.pro that he will be replaced in the near future, Jarek "DeKay" Lewis of DBLTAP reports.
ANALYSIS
With Virtus.pro once again flaming out at a big tournament -- this time going 0-3 during The New Legends stage of the ELEAGUE Major: Boston -- many wondered if changes would finally come to this roster. It looks as though that's finally happening in the form of TaZ's departure from the team. His release would mark the end of the longest roster tenure in CS:GO history, as the quintet of TaZ, Snax, NEO, pashaBiceps, and byali have been playing together since 2013. In his place, VP is looking to set up a buyout for Kinguin's MICHU, the No. 1 Polish prospect. If that doesn't go through, they will pursue a player from AGO Gaming. No matter what, TaZ's tenure with the team will be over as soon as either deal goes through. It is unknown what the next step for TaZ will be after leaving VP.

ANALYSIS
While not dubbed ELEAGUE Season 3, this is the third go around for the Turner-sponsored event. VP won the first one back in 2016 before the team started to fall apart. After some less-than-stellar finishes at some events in the first half of 2017, VP finished 3rd-4th at the PGL Major. Should that team show up to ELEAGUE when Group C kicks off towards the end of September, NiP and Cloud9 will have their work cut out.

Invited to ESL One New York
December 31, 1969
Virtus.pro have been officially invited to ESL One New York, according to an announcement on ESL's twitter.
ANALYSIS
After taking down Fnatic in a quick 2-0 series to secure the first ever ELEAGUE crown, Virtus.pro will try to keep up the momentum up at ESL One New York in October. At the last ESL event in Cologne back in July, Virtus.pro made it all the way to the semifinals before being defeated by SK Gaming, who would go on to win the event. A lot of people wondered what would have happened had SK Gaming not been disqualified from ELEAGUE a couple weeks before the playoffs, and now they'll get their wish when the teams battle it out in New York along with the already confirmed Team Liquid and G2 Esports.
