Vitality why not kick RpK too ?
France MbappeGOAT 
can still preserve major spot this way. I know RpK doesn't have an ego and doesn't create problems but ingame if Vitality wants to win titles consistenly they need to upgrade him.

Topics are hidden when running Sport mode.
France doesn't have players to replace him. Kio is shit, mark my words.
2019-09-10 02:17
kio may be a fucking trash teammate but he's an upgrade over RpK in every aspect.

my feeling is that Vitality will pick up either shox or kio and like 2 months after putting 1 of them, they should add the other in the place of RpK
2019-09-10 02:22
try kicking a tank, it hurts
2019-09-10 02:25

They could/will probably do this: Shox (IGL / Lurker) Kioshima (Support / Entry) apEX (Entry) ALEX (Lurker / Rifler) (Or have Shox call on some maps / T/CT sides & ALEX on some idk) ZywOo (AWPer)

+1, he should Just focus on the enemies' heads that's when he's good, shox igl is worst shox
2019-09-10 04:12
+1, taking shox in as a rifler would be a great addition, but if you want to destroy the team before it even starts just add him as an igl, gl at never doing anything

They transferred IGL from NBK to ALEX, there's no way they will transfer it again. ALEX will probably have full IGL
2019-09-10 02:38
Sweden meistr0 
Yeah, that might happen. But NBK & ALEX split the IGLing for a long time.
2019-09-10 15:26
yes and they kicked him because alex is enough. let shox just rifle and be the star player he is ffs
2019-09-10 17:27
Sweden meistr0 
KEK. Shox star player? This isnt 2013 dude. Shox is meh.
2019-09-10 17:40
shox is meh just like olof is meh these days. but they can do better if they are set free. I doubt all their potential and talent just disappeared suddenly. maybe you are right but from what we observed is that shox and IGL just doesn't click.
2019-09-10 18:13
Sweden meistr0 
Never said Olof is a "god" either, hes mediocre. Olof is "set free", he doesnt really have any super important role, just a rifler. Well, sure, make ALEX 100% IGL, but i wouldnt pick Shox up, id rather go with Kio or someone else. Put Shox on a European mix team or something.
2019-09-10 18:41
shox IGL lol
2019-09-10 03:17

Imagine? I am more like saying what will happen if Shox joins.
2019-09-10 15:14
Why would Vitality do that? ALEX's IGLing made them a top team
2019-09-10 15:19
Sweden meistr0 
Bruh chill lol. You know NBK & ALEX split the IGLing right? lol.
2019-09-10 15:25
Vitality's game became miles better after ALEX joined and you can't deny that
2019-09-10 16:51
Sweden meistr0 
Where did i say it didnt? lol.
2019-09-10 16:53
You took away credit from him by saying the IGLing duty was split. Of course I knew that, but we don't know how much NBK- contributed, considering he's a mediocre IGL at best, on his own
2019-09-10 16:55
Sweden meistr0 
Credit? No. I used facts, which is that NBK & ALEX split the IGLing role. Now NBK is out 100% & Shox is about to join, and as we all know Shox IGL in G2. Well, since they IGLd on 1 side each NBK probably contributed a lot.
2019-09-10 16:58
Regardless, your initial comment is still far fetched. No team has shown much improvement or consistency under shox's leadership, unlike in ALEX's case.
2019-09-10 17:02
''after benching NBK- in the aftermath of the StarLadder Major, reportedly due to friction within the squad'' - hltv If thats true then there is no need to kick rpk since he has done nothing wrong. I'll tell you, this is not the first time I have heard about friction between french players. Hopefully it's not true but it doesn't look good.
2019-09-10 02:31
it's sadly true
2019-09-10 03:52
France OtelloO 
It's true Nbk was mad after losing leadership and IGL to Alex and went toxic for weeks. Apparently he had big arguments with some teammates and some said that he even had a "physical argument".
2019-09-10 05:14
Imagine NBK trying to fight rpk
2019-09-10 05:20
No one would ever try to fight RPK, don't be silly

What is the purpose of having all players on a roster from the same country? Wouldn't it be nice to use two or so players from others regions if these players are more talented? I never understand this
2019-09-10 02:31
Well they do speak French so their options for players are quite limited...

amanek and devoduvek managed in misfits

Yes, and misfits was clearly a tier 1 team playing in tier 1 tournaments against tier 1 opponents )) not.
2019-09-10 12:49
France OtelloO 
They communicate better in French. So options are France, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Canada/Québec, half of Africa. Some French players can communicate in English but its very basic. If it could work for a few games here and there it's not suitable for high level and also could be hell for daily training and life with the teammates.

i can join vitality)))))))

they will kick rpk, since NBK said that Apex, Alex and their coach are making the decisions, ofc they wont kick Zywoo, they will bring shox & kio surely

RpK is a very solid player, there's no reason to kick him. A guy that always does what the IGL says, doesn't complain about dying, doesn't go for flashy highlight, doesn't seem to tilt is very important
2019-09-10 02:43
France OtelloO 
+1 also he's mentally stable. Never rage, never complain, never mad and never too hyped/enthusiastic. He's calming everybody down just by his presence. It's good for a team to have a player that you know will never have a break down because of pressure
2019-09-10 05:19
Weird how you have a player like Kenny who literally cries irl whenever he dies/his team loses a round, then you have rpk who is a fucking monk in terms of irl reactions. rpk adopted confirmed? No way he's French. KennyS is French, rpk isn't
2019-09-10 12:51
France OtelloO 
It's a matter of individual feelings management not nationality. RPK is way more mature, not only older but mature. He had a real job before being a CS pro, he's not this kind of nerd who never experienced anything else than CS. He has way more distance with the game .
2019-09-10 14:08
Nah it's def. nationality ))
2019-09-10 15:09
France OtelloO 
2019-09-10 15:54
Kinda obvious why you don't drop him if you understand basic roles of CS... He's a team player, he can anchor any area of the map, will literally do whatever you tell him to, he plays for the team without any ego whats so ever.

at the time Happy got kicked RPK was the worst player of all and still skillwise he is the worst of all.
2019-09-10 03:15
do u know something about rpk's role ?
2019-09-10 03:54
his role is to play bad obv
2019-09-10 11:04
" Vitality wants to win titles consistenly" LUL they kicked Happy, they will going down. Best ist NBK kicked happy for the same reason he got kicked and now he is crying like a baby.

It’s true, all he has leverage wise is that he plays any role and good chemistry with the team. Kioshima should replace him role wise

Kio acts like a kid he doesnt deserve to play in a team at all. Either the guy is crying and leaving the team or he gets kicked for unknown reason
2019-09-10 12:31
Because he does the donkey work and doesn´t care. Also, he is LE TANK

Le tank actually has better stats than apEX recently, and better rating overall :) Yes, you can look it up. AND le tank is playing a difficult role. So in reality -apEX +kio would be the right move
2019-09-10 12:39
1- Kick the most consistent player in the team. 2- Replace it with Cryoshima 3- Kick him/he leaves because reason 4- ???? 5- Profit!
