The goal is to bring the Polish Counter Strike back to the world’s top. x-kom and AGO Esports have decided on a strategic partnership, which will result in an e-sport team on a completely new level, with a new name and visual identity. The composition of the team will also change.
We want to set new directions and now we know how to do it – says Michał Świerczewski, president of the x-kom. Our shop, from a small one in Częstochowa, has grown to a gigantic size within a dozen or so years. In football, within 5 years we returned to the Ekstraklasa with Rakow. Now we will try to do something similar in e-sport.
The cooperation assumes putting the x-kom Team players at the disposal of the AGO Esport Management Board. Today the selection process begins, which will select the final composition of the whole team and the team of co-workers. This process should be completed by the end of September 2019. We will select players who have not only high skills in the game. Several years of observations and experience will allow us to select the optimal composition, which is a mixture of competence, personality and determination in the implementation of objectives.
This project has great potential, if only due to the upcoming research,” comments Jakub Szumielewicz, president of AGO Esports. This research will allow us to build real competence in assessing the potential of players, monitoring their current form and risks of injuries, as well as help to develop a training workshop. x-kom, in turn, brings to our cooperation enormous technological support and contacts with potential sponsors from the endemic area. Thus, we become a company with practically unlimited possibilities.

It is already known that the players will eventually play on desktops produced by x-kom. G4M3Ry is a world leader in gaming computers. It is known that it is not the equipment that wins tournaments, but our players can be sure that possible sports accidents will not be explained by problems in this area – commented the vice-president of x-kom Przemysław Ladra.
From now on, the team will be called ” x-kom AGO”, and the players’ jerseys will be marked with the logo of the shop. The close cooperation of both companies has been emphasized in the visual identification of the team. The Hawk changed the colour of the eye and the elements of the Hawk’s feathers changed the colours to the colours characteristic for the x-kom. The refreshed logo is used on new team shirts, which are available in the offer of x-kom.
AGO Esports was founded 3 years ago and in such a short period of time has become a recognized brand in the international arena. Among the organization’s greatest successes are the qualification for the Fortnite World Championship with a pool of $30 million and the second place for the World Electronic Sports Games in CS:GO. The Starcraft 2 team member is classified in the top four of the world’s top four players from outside South Korea and the Counter Strike team is regularly ranked in the top ten of the world’s HLTV ranking.
x-kom Team is a team noticeable mainly on the domestic market. Established in 2017, the organization has recently won a meeting up at PGE Narodowy, which secured its participation in the Games Clash Masters in Gdynia, where the prize pool is 100 thousand dollars. Previously, they also won in Good Games League 2018 or GameON 2017 tournaments.
