Fans of Polish CS:GO would like to believe that the region will finally get back on its feet and this season will break the period of several years of drought. There have been changes in the leading Polish teams to stabilize their level. Further rotations may already be in the plans, but some teams have already created their rosters for 2023.
Transfers on the Polish CS:GO scene
First, it is appropriate to list the teams that decided to join the next season without changes. These are Permitta Esports, AGO and UNGENTIUM. However, this is partly due to the fact that each of them made some rotations in the second half of 2022. A few months is too early to verify, although there are already some rumors about AGO that the organization is planning to rebuild the team from scratch. No rotations were made in the NAVI Javelins women’s team either.
The biggest transfer of the Polish scene was definitely the signing of Aleksander “hades” Miśkiewicz by 9INE. The Polish sniper returns “to the old trash” after a year and a half of adventure with foreign teams. As an ENCE player, Miśkiewicz played at the highest level, taking part in two Majors (semi-final at PGL Major Antwerp 2022). Over time, however, his form became very changeable, which made the Finnish brand send him to the bench. 2022 “hades” ended with a loan at Finest, but it did not bring the expected results, and the organization itself withdrew from the CS:GO scene.

Moved away from 9INE for “hades”, Grzegorz “SZPERO” Dziamałek went to Anonymo. As an experienced leader, he is to give the team a new style. The beginnings of the captain are quite difficult, because “Anonymous” are not doing well. Undoubtedly, everything still needs some time to get to grips with each other.
Some players from the broken MAD DOG’S PACT roster also found new homes. Bartosz “bnox” Niebisz – at least temporarily – landed in Illuminar Gaming, which brought Błażej “zaNNNa” Bączkowski back to active play. The long-time PACT captain, Dawid “lunAtic” Cieślik, became the host of HONORIS. The rest of the players are looking for stable teams, although Sebastian “fr3nd” Kuśnierz got involved in the international plywood project Let us cook, in which Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski also currently plays.
The rest of the changes on the Polish CS:GO scene concerned lower-seeded or irregular lineups. The list of transfers made is as follows:
- Aleksander “hades” Miśkiewicz ~ 9INE
- Dawid “lunAtic” Cieslik ~ HONORIS
- Bartosz “bnox” Niebisz ~ Illuminar Gaming
- Grzegorz “SZPERO” Dziamałek ~ Anonymous
- Błażej “zaNNN” Bączkowski ~ Illuminar Gaming (reinstated)
- Sebastian “fr3nd” Kuśnierz ~ Let us cook
- Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski ~ Let us cook
