Virtus.pro is a well-established Russian esports organization, mostly famous for their teams in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2. The organisation is known for hosting the majority of the players from the original Golden Five and Poland's most popular CS:GO roster, which has fans all around the world, who are known for their passion in supporting the squad.

History[edit]

Virtus.pro was formed back in 2003, and gained it's first roster in the Counter Strike scene back in 1.6, with the earliest squad formed in 2006/2007 consisting of Russian and Ukrainian players from that era including the likes of Kane, Zeus and Edward. The organisation continued to host various CIS-based rosters for the rest of 1.6 and into CS:GO, with the final iteration of the CIS-based CS:GO roster becoming the first team to defeat Ninjas in Pyjamas on LAN and end their 87-0 streak. The roster eventually split into Astana Dragons and KerchNET, when the team disbanded in July of 2013.

In January of 2014, Virtus.pro signed AGAiN, a team comprising of the majority of the famous Golden Five roster from 1.6 (TaZ, NEO and pashaBiceps) and two younger players (Snax and byali), and their roster is famous for their amazing fanbase and explosive playstyle, the last for which they have been dubbed "Virtus.plow". This roster stayed with the organisation with no roster changes, besides the addition of kuben as coach in early 2015, until the 6th of February 2018 when TaZ was benched and replaced by MICHU. It was the longest standing 5-man roster in CS:GO to date. The team is prone to periods of ups and downs but remains one of the most successful teams in CS:GO of all-time, having accumulated several high-profile tournament wins in the past, most notably winning the EMS One: Katowice Major back in March of 2014. The roster has signed contracts with the organisation to remain a part of Virtus.pro until 2020. [1]
