Czech AWPer Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný is in discussions with Sprout about joining their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster, according to multiple sources close to the organization. If he were to join the active roster, he would replace the space left by Florian "syrsoN" Rische, who is reportedly being targeted by BIG.
Oskar has been a free agent since mid-October after a six month period with HellRaisers. During his time with HellRaisers, the team finished 1-3 in the StarLadder Berlin Major Challengers Stage and struggled to qualify for large international events. Following the Major, the team announced he would go on the inactive list. He left HellRaisers a month later.
His time with HellRaisers was his first stint with an organization since playing for Mousesports for nearly two and a half years, beginning in 2016. With Mousesports, Oskar helped them win ESG Tour Mykonos 2017, StarLadder Season 4, V4 Future Sports Festival, and ESL One: New York 2018.
Sprout is slated to play relegation to remain in ESL Pro League for Season 11, alongside Windigo Gaming, Aristocracy, and OpTic Gaming. Both Windigo Gaming and OpTic Gaming will not have lineups to participate, but it is unclear how that will affect the relegation process at this time. The best placement for the current Sprout roster was a runner-up finish at DreamHack Open Atlanta in November.
Representatives from Sprout declined comment.
