Counter-Strike duo Neo & Taz to reunite in new esports team

Neo and Taz initially split up but, after two years, the pair are setting up a new Counter-Strike team and have already begun recruiting.

It may not be as mainstream as Fortnite, but Counter-Strike: Global Offensive continues to be a giant in the esports scene even eight years after its release.

In fact, a brand new team is currently being set up and it’s being led by the pair of Filip ‘Neo’ Kubski and Wiktor ‘Taz’ Wojtas.

These two played together on several Polish teams for 14 years, including Pentagram and Virtus.pro, and have a number of big wins under their belts and trophies on their shelves. They were a pretty iconic duo until their split in February 2018, when Neo was benched by Virtus.pro and later sold to another team.

They then reunited in December, when Neo stepped in to replace another player on the ARCY team, which Taz happened to also be a part of.

While ARCY disbanded only a month later, Neo’s and Taz’s relationship clearly didn’t deteriorate in the last two years.

‘It’s obvious that Neo and I needed time to work through our past,’ said Taz. ‘When you have played with someone for so many years, spent so much time together and shared moments of both glory and defeat, it’s difficult to sort things out.

‘Time has worked in our favour though. It showed that the bond we have is much bigger than only the game we play together.’

Details about the new team are scarce, but the recruitment process has already begun, which is ‘being conducted to establish cooperation with the most talented and promising players in the Polish CS:GO scene.’

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is available on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
