Biography

Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas is a Polish CS:GO player, formerly a Counter-Strike 1.6 player, currently the in-game leader for Virtus.Pro.

TaZ has began playing CS 1.6 in 2003, during a time when very few households in Warsaw had an internet connection and the only way to play Counter-Strike was at an internet cafe. After seeing news of the Cyberathlete Professional League events happening where Swedish and American teams were competing in USA, he decided he wanted to compete as well. He formed a team and has competed since 2004 almost consistently on a team with neo and LUq.

When TaZ and his team won WCG 2006 in Monza, Italy, they went in as the underdogs. They beat the best Korean and Danish teams in the world, facing a very strong Ninjas in Pyjamas line-up in the grand finals, but ultimately beating them 2-1.

He is considered to be one of the "Golden Five" Polish Counter-Strike players, along with neo, kuben, Loord and LUq who won many tournaments with a number of different teams. LUq was eventually replaced by pasha in 2009. They are the only team to win three World Cyber Games events – 2006, 2009, and 2011.

Since the beginning of 2014, TaZ has been under contract with the Russian organization Virtus.Pro with a line-up that has remained unbroken since. On July 30, 2016, his team won the first season of ELEAGUE, the first ever CS:GO league to be streamed on cable television.
