Team Vitality has been involved in the VALORANT scene almost since its inception, but mainly through hosting tournaments, such as the The Vitality European Open , and slowly getting involved within its ecosystem. Team Vitality’s CEO, Nicolas Maurer, even voiced his opinion on third-party tournaments and their desired entrance into VALORANT.
There were already reports of Bayram “Bramz” Ben Redjeb being the first player, with coach Andrey “fragon” Katz guiding the team. During this calm-before-the-storm period of the VALORANT esports scene, Team Vitality are looking to finalize their roster, and reports from 1pv.fr can confirm this has already been settled on.
Reportedly, trials for the team have been ongoing for several weeks now since the initial report, with Ouali “M4CHINA” Manset, Vakaris “vakk” Bebravičius, Lukas “feqew” Petrauskas, and Jokūbas “Cender” Labutis rounding out the organization’s VALORANT roster. Some of these players were already rumored to be in talks with Vitality prior to now, namely feqew with several sources confirming his onboarding back in December 2020.
The lineup sounds extremely strong, with each of them having won numerous titles during their time in VALORANT. This includes the Kingdom Calling for both feqew and ceNder, the TOURSTAT Summer Clash and the Trovo Challenge – Europe for vakk, and the Rix.GG Cup for M4CHINA. vakk and M4CHINA each qualified for the First Strike Europe Regional Final, while feqew and ceNder came just one best-of-3 away.
How this team will perform together if this is the final roster is definitely going to be interesting to see. Let us know your thoughts on Vitality’s rumored lineup in the comments below!
