PashaBiceps and the Virtus.Plow
In January of 2014, CIS Powerhouse Virtus.Pro picked up AGAiN, the Polish team that included names like the CS1.6 GOAT Contender NEO. Two months later, EMS One Katowice, the first major of the year took place. Most newer viewers will remember that event for giving us the best stickers in-game. But the veterans remember, this was the birth of the legend of the Virtus.Plow.
A team that shouldn’t have made even the top 4, took the motivation of the home-ground and defeated everyone that stood in their path. The only map they dropped was to the Swedes in LGB. Their win over NIP gave VP their first and only major and gave pashaBiceps his Major-MVP. From there, the team became a consistent top team that always brought their best on LAN.
Sticking together through thick and thin the team was always tough to put away, much like the Virtus.Pro of today. They kept coming back even after their prime years were behind them, making Major finals as late as 2017. All good things must come to an end and in 2018 after 53 months together, the lineup finally went their separate ways.
pashaBiceps stayed on in VP till the end of 2018, helping bring in younger polish talents. But in mid-2019, the Polish Legend finally hung up the mouse.
