"After the reveal that Belarus Cypher won’t be able to attend QuakeCon 2017, Virtus.pro decided to find equally talented player to represent our organisation during the tournament. Managing crew was scouting the scene, trying to find the best match for our current players. Candidate's rich professional history, high current form and motivation determined our decision. As a result, Virtus.pro signed another legend Poland Maciej "Av3k" Krzykowski.

Despite him being a relatively young player, Av3k’s carrier is older than some of our fans. He started his gaming adventure from a very early age and quickly secured the title of one of the most recognisable Quake players.

Among such stars as Cooller and Cypher, Maciej has reached top ranks multiple times during international tournaments. In fact, not only was Av3k one of the Cypher’s lifetime rivals, but he also happened to be his teammate a couple times. We can call it a love-hate relationship. At least for the next year, these two are bound together under the VP's name."
