Virtus.pro has set its sights on AGO Esports rifler Michał "snatchie" Rudzki, according to multiple sources close to both teams. Should snatchie join Virtus.pro, he would fill the position played by stand-in Piotr "morelz" Taterka in recent weeks. It is unclear at this time how close the two organizations are to making a deal or who would replace snatchie on the AGO active roster.


Paweł "byali" Bieliński has become unhappy playing with his current teammates, as mentioned in last week’s “Sources Say” column, during this extended period of poor performance by VP against international competition. ​Morelz has been a stand-in for nearly a month as Virtus.pro has considered permanent replacements for ​Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski, who left for Mousesports for a ​reported buyout of $290,000.


Snatchie has been a member of AGO for just over a year, helping the team reach a couple playoff appearances at international events in 2018. Most recently was a quarterfinal run at StarSeries Season 5 against North, where AGO lost over three maps. At 20 years old, he has bounced around numerous teams since ​CS:GO’s inception before finding a home with AGO as one of their best players.


Virtus.pro declined comment.
