Virtus Pro has signed Tomasz “phr” Wójcik after a brief trial period, the organization announced today.
Phr has been playing for VP since July when he replaced Michal “OKOLICIOUZ” Glowaty in the lineup. The former AGO player attended two LAN tournaments with VP, helping the team win the Polish Esport League Spring 2019 Finals and finish top four at the Good Game League in July.
Before moving to VP, phr played almost two years for AGO, another big Polish team. AGO were ranked in HLTV’s top 20 several times and their best result was at the WESG World Finals in March when they came in second place after losing to Windigo in the grand finals.
VP’s coach, Jakub “kuben” Gurczynski, said in a recent interview that he wants the team to reach the top 15 in HLTV’s rankings by the end of 2019, even though they haven’t made it beyond the top 30 this year. VP have been struggling to find good results since 2017, the last year they contested several tier-one championships.
Phr will play his first LAN event as an official VP player next week at the V4 Future Sports Festival. Mousesports, MIBR, and NiP will be there to fight for their share of the $335,000 prize pool.
