There’s a new Virtus Pro CS:GO team player! Last night it was announced that AGO Snatchie to Virtus Pro is official.
VP Pasha Biceps welcomed Snatchie to Virtus Pro by promising to keep his Dragon Lore hidden in his pants.

Virtus Pro are currently in the IEM Shanghai semifinals with Morelz. However, after this event, Snatchie will take Morelz’s place and play with VP at the ZOTAC Cup Masters 2018 Grand Finals.
Snatchie will also be part of the Virtus Pro major lineup for the FACEIT CS:GO Major.
Why did they bring Snatchie to Virtus Pro?
Snatchie has been one of Poland’s best CS:GO players for a while now.
He managed to score multiple high placings with AGO throughout the year and even competed with S1mple for the top player of StarSeries S5.
It's somewhat clear that snatchie has been the best Polish player in 2018. Impressive improvement by him this year.
But the teams in their current composition are not going anywhere. Might be time to switch things up pic.twitter.com/q6S2t62ljy

With Virtus Pro struggling for a while now and losing Snax to mousesports, bringing in a top Polish AWPer should breathe some life back into the team.
New Virtus Pro CS:GO Team Roster
The official Virtus Pro CS:GO lineup will now be:
Jarosław “pashaBiceps” Jarząbkowski
Filip “NEO” Kubski
Paweł “byali” Bieliński
Michał “MICHU” Müller
Michał “snatchie” Rudzki
Snatchie will be taking over the AWP role and Jakub “kuben” Gurczynski will remain as head coach.
One of the teams to watch at the FACEIT CS:GO Major 2018?
Since Virtus Pro have retained three former members (Pasha, NEO, byali) from their past major team, you’ll be seeing Snatchie and MICHU join them at the upcoming 2018 CS:GO major.
This isn’t the only new lineup you’ll see there. C9, Mousesports, FaZe, and MIBR have all made recent roster changes. Most recently, YNk joined MIBR as head coach.
With top players like Snax, Olof, S1mple, coldzera, and more at the major, we’ll see what the new VP CS:GO team can do against them.
The major roster lock is on August 5, so we might see some more roster changes before the end of the week.
