Pasha joined Team Liquid in early August as a ‘streamer and certified Liquid supporter’, but teased a comeback to competitive CS together with the announcement. In the announcement video, he called on Liquid star Jacky “Stewie2K” Yip and said, “if someone cannot go to a tournament, you know my number”.

A golden legacy

One of the most beloved players in the history of Counter-Strike, pasha has been all but retired after being inactive in the professional CS:GO scene for over a year. 

With one of the most successful careers, spanning back to Counter-Strike 1.6, pasha is a true legend of the game. Together with the group popularly dubbed the “Golden Five”, and with later additions Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski and Paweł “byali” Bielińsk, the longevity pasha produced has been almost unseen in the whole of esports.

A member of Virtus Pro’s roster for five years, pasha gained both a cult following, and left an unrivaled legacy in CS:GO. Together with the team, he holds numerous victories including the ELEAGUE Season 1, DreamHack Open Bucharest in 2016, and the DreamHack Masters Las Vegas in 2017. In 2014, Pasha was voted 3rd best player in the world by HLTV.

But it has been mostly downhill on the competitive scene for pasha after Virtus Pro ceased the legendary roster’s operations in December 2018. The veteran player had a couple of outings together with AGO and Youngsters later on, but nothing remotely close to the past dominance he achieved with Virtus Pro.

As it stands, it looks as though the popular Papito will have a chance to leave the CS:GO scene on a higher note than last time.
