Richard "shox" Papillon, Vitality’s rifler spoke with Inven Global about the latest changes in his career and the future of the french scene.
He explains that many rookie players want to be ZywOo but a team doesn’t function with FIVE ZywOos:
“What the French scene lacks is a "face": someone whose charisma and leadership is apparent, that can influence others on the way. Nowadays, a lot of young players want to be the star, put headshots all over the place, be like ZywOo. But if there is only that profile out there, you cannot assemble a team [with just that]. If everyone wants to be the star, well: y'all can stay where you are, because we have ZywOo and he isn't going anywhere!”
Who do you think deserves a chance in the limelight on the french scene right now?
Any rising stars that we should keep a close eye on?
There is a small chance this might be a hint toward a potential future Vitality academy, from the way he talks about the French scene. (or picking up some young in game leaders and players with supportive roles, notably anchors, in the future)
