PGL Changes First Day Matchups After Virtus.Pro Roster Change
Virtus.Pro’s roster change has changed the matchups, just days before the Stockholm Major.
PGL has updated its schedule for Day 1 of the CS:GO Major following a Virtus.Pro roster change.
Virtus.Pro replaced Sanjar "SANJI" Kuliev with Evgeny "FL1T" Lebedev for the Major. As a result of this change, VP will lose 20% of its RMR points and drop below Entropiq in seedings. The CS:GO Major kicks off with Astralis taking on Copenhagen Flames and Team Spirit facing off against FaZe Clan.
Virtus.Pro Announce Temporary Change to CS:GO Roster
Virtus.Pro have added Fl1t to the CS:GO roster, replacing Sanji just days before the start of the Major. This change came as a surprise to CS:GO fans, especially because of its timing. With just days to go for the Major, one would expect Virtus.Pro to continue with the current roster. The Virtus.Pro roster change has forced a change in seeding and hence the Day 1 matchups.
