Piotr “morelz” Taterka replaces Paweł "byali" Bieliński in Virtus.pro CS:GO roster. Piotr will sign a full contract with the team, and BLAST Pro Series Istanbul will mark his first tournament as a main player under the Virtus.pro tag.
morelz has previously played under the banner of Virtus.pro as a stand-in in ESEA MDL Season 28 Europe, IEM Shanghai 2018, DreamHack Open Valencia 2018, and in DreamHack Masters Stockholm qualifier.
Roman Dvoryankin, Virtus.pro general manager: "We, just like our fans, are concerned about the roster's results, and can not remain idle in the face of two failed Majors in a row. We will announce the next steps that will allow Virtus.pro to return to the list of the world's best teams over the course of September. As for Piotr, I am sure that constant practice will accelerate his progress among the team's active roster even more."
BLAST Pro Series Istanbul will take place 28-29 September in Turkey. The teams will battle for the total prize pool of $250 000.
