Snax takes over the IGL role on the GamerLegion roster

CS:GO legend Janusz "⁠Snax⁠" Pogorzelski has joined GamerLegion marking his return to a top team. The 30-year-old will join the team as an in-game leader. 

Snax joins GamerLegion as their IGL

Snax takes over the position left behind by Sanzhar "⁠neaLaN⁠" Iskhakov. This marks a heroic comeback for Snax who has spent most of the past three and a half years playing in the Tier 3 scene. But with this opportunity, playing for GamerLegion, he now has an opportunity to showcase his leadership skills. 

Best known for his time on the Polish team of Virtus.pro, Snax has not attended many Tier 1 events since 2020. He parted ways with Virtus.pro in 2020 and has stood in for ENCE during one tournament. ENCE managed to find their way to the Grand Finals of IEM Dallas 2022.

The transition is going to be a tough one for the CS:GO superstar. Not only is he joining a new team, but their first appearance will be at IEM Sydney. The tournament is the first Tier 1 ESL event to feature CS2. 

So for Snax, he has to adapt to the brand-new game and a new team, which will be a tough task. Regardless if there is one player who can rise up to challenges, it is Snax. 

For Polish and CS fans in general, it will be an exciting moment to see Snax back in action. Whether he manages to impress others with his leadership skills, however, is still up for debate.

IEM Sydney 2023 kicks off on October 16. The event continues for a week and features a prize pool of $250,000. The event will have sixteen teams starting off in a Double-elimination GSL format group stage.
