Piotr “morelz” Taterka will replace Paweł "byali" Bieliński on the Virtus.pro Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster, the organization announced Thursday.
The announcement states that morelz will imminently sign a full contract with the Russian CS:GO team and begin competing at BLAST Pro Series Istanbul, set to take place Sept. 28-29. His arrival on VP confirms a Tuesday report by Cybersport.
Morelz began his tenure at VP as a stand-in for Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski in June before Snax signed with mousesports. He's been with VP since then but spent time on the bench.
Byali, for his part, was reportedly unhappy with VP as far back as July and looking to make a change. The team announced Aug. 25 that he would depart after the FACEIT London Major, and North eliminated VP from in last week's Challengers Stage. Byali has yet to announce joining a new organization.
