Majority German Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team Sprout are exploring replacements for AWPer Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný, according to multiple sources close to the situation. According to a separate source, Sprout has sent an offer to Owen "smooya" Butterfield who is currently a free agent.

Oskar joined Sprout at the start of 2020 and only attended one offline event with the team before the start of the coronavirus pandemic. The event was DreamHack Open Leipzig, where they finished last place after a loss to Heroic. Since that event, Sprout failed to make it through the ESL One: Rio Europe Minor Closed Qualifer and they were not invited to the ESL One: Road to Rio.

The one highlight of Sprout's recent performance was a 1-2nd place finish in Season 33 of ESEA Premier. The finish gave them entry to the Season 33 Global Challenge which awards three out of eight teams a spot in Season 12 of ESL Pro League. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, it is unclear if or when the tournament will be played.

Oskar has played for a number of organizations during his tenure in CS:GO, including Mousesports and HellRaisers on two separate occasions. His longest stint was with Mousesports, where the team won StarSeries Season 4 and ESL One: New York 2018. Following that period, he re-joined HellRaisers but was unable to help them reach any notable finishes in 2019.

Sprout declined to comment.
