It is considered to be a mark of respect in Counter-Strike when a map callout is named after a player, it signifies that a particular player has mastered that specific position or made a really impactful play from that spot. Though it might not be an official name senior Astralis player Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander recently revealed a few Vertigo callouts used by Astralis while playing, and it seems that these positions have been named after legendary Polish players Filip "NEO" Kubski, Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas, and Jaroslaw "pashaBiceps" Jarzabkowski.

Astralis Reveals Personal Vertigo Callouts

According to the Tweet made by gla1ve yesterday, it looks like Astralis are quite fond of the Polish stars NEO, TaZ, and pashaBiceps, as they have designated several positions on ‘B-Site’ of Vertigo by these names.

From the above image which has also been shared by gla1ve, it is pretty clear which position has been named after what player. Though these might not be the official names of the particular spots, the fact that one of the top teams in the world considers to call them by the names of some of the most prominent Polish CS:GO players is pretty amazing.

Since their departure from in December 2018 none of these players has played for a tier-one team properly, NEO did join FaZe Clan as a substitute for a period of four months but things did not work out as planned. He is currently playing in a team called HONORIS alongside TaZ who jumped around a lot since his departure playing for tier-two teams like Team Kinguin,, Aristocracy, and ARCY.

Pasha was the only one who did not actively pursue a career as a player any more, though he has not retired yet from the competitive circuit taking on the role of streamer for Team Liquid shows what the player currently prioritizes.
