AGO unveil their new CS:GO roster
Shortly after announcing their plans of owning a seven-man CS:GO roster, AGO unveiled their main five players who will represent the team in the upcoming months.
Earlier this month, when AGO signed Oskar "oskarish" Stenborowski as the seventh member of the roster, the team coach Mikołaj "miNirox" Michałków unveiled AGO's plans of having two players for each position in their squad, which would allow them to change out players if needed, due to fatigue or other factors that would require a roster swap.
After signing their seventh member, all AGO players were slated to go through a series of tests conducted by AGO's experts to determine which five players are the best fit for the main lineup. Those tests have reportedly concluded this Tuesday when AGO announced their primary five players who will represent their CS:GO squad.
Headlining the new-look AGO roster will be Damian "Furlan" Kislowski and Dominik "GruBy" Swiderski, who are two of the longest-standing members of the team, having joined AGO in July 2017 and have since established themselves as two iconic members of the team. Joining the duo will be an 18-year-old Polish CS:GO pro Miłosz "mhL" Knasiak, who arrived at AGO in July 2019 as a trial and has since been promoted to the main squad.
Patryk "Sidney" Korab and Eryk "leman" Kocęba, who were previously a part of AGO's active roster, however, have found themselves moved to the backup positions, in favour of Maciej "F1KU" Miklas and the newest arrival oskarish. It's worth noting that Sidney and leman will still be a part of AGO as the organisation states they believe in their development, which is why they wish to keep them on board.
Until further notice, Sidney and leman will "focus on improving their individual skills," which could mean AGO will loan the Polish duo to other teams, in order to give them an opportunity to grow and improve as players.
The new-look AGO roster is slated to make its debut in LOOT.BET Season 6, which is an online B-Tier competition, slated to begin on Sunday, April 5. The tournament will feature 20 European CS:GO teams, who will compete for the largest slice of US $50,000 prize pool, with $30,000 reserved for the champions.
LOOT.BET Season 6 will use a 16 Team Swiss system format, with all matches throughout the regular season played as best-of-three (Bo3). Once the regular season comes to an end, top eight teams will proceed to the playoffs, while the bottom eight get eliminated.
The playoffs will use a single-elimination bracket, featuring 12 teams, eight who qualified through the regular season and four teams who will receive a direct invite. All matches will be played as Bo3, including the grand finals, slated to be played on Friday, May 8.
