Hey guys looking for some advice. Currently I hold a PPL and was about to start sitting my atpl exams. Do you recommend delaying it? My only worry is about the changes they are bringing regarding '100 KSA'. I would be sitting all my exams in Poland

100% delay. There will be no jobs for years and by starting exams you start the clock on getting your ratings. Most airlines are firing and wont be recruiting again for at least 3 years.

Don't delay, take the exams. You were ready to press the button, right? So presumably you have the money for training. Take the exams, get the CBIR, get the CPL. All single engine. Now the exams are safe, you've spent a lot less than you planned and you've got options.
You can 'finish off' with MEP/MEIR/MCC when the market recovers, which means you're a finished pilot with a lead time of a month instead of 18 months. In the meantime, become an FI or an Uber driver...
