veteran of the scene
Jaroslaw “pashaBiceps” Jarzabkowski already has legendary status in the “CS: GO” scene at the age of 33. In his best e-sports years, he and his Virtus.pro team were among the best players of his era, despite incredibly strong international competition. With “Counter-Strike” he was not only able to finance his life, but also that of his wife and offspring – because “pasha” is also a dad.
Jaroslaw« pashaBiceps »Jarzabkowski lifts the trophy at the ESL Major Series One Katowice 2014.
After “Counter-Strike” finally got a successor with “CS: GO” in 2012, which was accepted by the whole community, the game was dominated by a team for two years. The ninjas in pajamas for short NiP from Sweden won everything there was to be won. It wasn't until 2014 that other teams slowly caught up with the team.
One of them was Virtus.pro from Poland. What Wimbledon is to the tennis world, the ESL Major Series One Katowice in Poland is to the “Counter-Strike” scene. And that's exactly where the Swedish ninjas in pajamas and the home team Virtus.pro met in the final. With the help of 11,000 screaming Polish fans, Pasha and his boys were able to win the major.
Streamer, comedian and martial artist
As the professional gamer said after his big win during a live stream on Twitch: “It was the best moment of my esports career.” While other teams felt like they changed their players after each tournament, he and his boys played together for years. He only left the organization in 2019, which is half an eternity in esports.
As a Twitch streamer, he also knows how to entertain. Pasha is the prankster of the scene. And a role model who was never disrespectful to his opponents. In addition to “Counter-Strike” and his family, the Pole also spends a lot of time in the gym. Because Pasha – according to his gamer name – definitely has a lot of biceps. But will his “CS” skills help him in the ring? He will make his first MMA debut on February 5th.
