Legendary CS:GO players Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas and Filip “NEO” Kubski will play together once again in a new project, TaZ announced today.

The Polish duo reunited in December 2019, after almost two years playing separately, on a team called ARCY, which disbanded last month after a series of bad results, including at Polish tournaments.

TaZ and NEO have a great history in Counter-Strike. They played together for 14 years, including CS 1.6, on notable teams such as Pentagram, AGAiN, and most notably Virtus Pro in CS:GO.

They won several major tournaments during their stint with the Russian organization, including the ESL ESEA Pro League Invitational in 2015, ELEAGUE season one in 2016, DreamHack Masters Las Vegas in 2017, and one CS:GO Major on home soil at ESL Major Series One Katowice in 2014.

TaZ was benched by VP in February 2018 after a streak of mixed results. NEO, on the other hand, left VP in December 2018.

“It’s obvious that NEO and I needed time to work through our past,” TaZ said. “When you have played with someone for so many years, spent so much time together and shared moments of both glory and defeat, it’s difficult to sort things out. Time has worked in our favor though. It showed that the bond we have is much bigger than only the game we play together.”

At the moment, the details of this new team are still unknown. TaZ said that they started the recruitment process and are looking for talented and promising Polish players to join them.

The Polish scene is far from its glory days, though. The ex-VP squad, which features Paweł “byali” Bieliński and Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski, are the highest-ranked Polish team at 29th on HLTV’s world rankings.
