Vitality target ALEX as Happy replacement - Report

Vitality are lining up a move for LDLC member Alex "ALEX" McMeekin, according to a report from VPEsports.com.

The 23-year-old Brit has been earmarked as a replacement for Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer, who is believed to be on his way out of the team after less than three months on Vitality's books.

The two-time Major champion will become the second person to leave the team since it signed for the famed French organisation, following the departure of coach Philippe "faculty" Rodier, who has since been replaced by Rémy "XTQZZZ" Quoniam.

ALEX close to joining Vitality

The report comes just a week after Vitality surprisingly failed to qualify for StarSeries i-League Season 7 following a 1-2 defeat to Spirit in the grand final of the European qualifier.

ALEX has been with LDLC since 2016, leading the team to several domestic triumphs and to international success at ESWC 2017 PGW. More recently, he helped the team to make a playoff appearance at IEM Chicago, beating Renegades, North and NRG before losing to Liquid in the first round of the playoffs.

It is unclear at this point whether ALEX will be taking over the in-game leader role from Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt, who has been calling the shots since the team's creation.

Vitality will make their first appearance in 2019 at the Europe Minor, which will be held in Katowice from January 16-20. With these changes, the team's roster will look as follows:

France Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt
France Cédric "RpK" Guipouy
France Dan "apEX" Madesclaire
France Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut
United Kingdom Alex "ALEX" McMeekin

France Rémy "XTQZZZ" Quoniam (coach)

When you’re not good anymore you should go to t3 and let the next talents take over. Zeus announcing retirement is inspirational. Ska shoulda left earlier. Blade was smart to coach. Starix Pronax Maikelelleele Fox all went to t3 cuz they couldn’t hack it no more.

China o_O 
They did get a lot better even under this short period, but failing to qualify for starseries(?) was a huge dip for them. LDLC have looked solid for a couple months now but their peak was lower than Vitality who have been together way shorter.
2018-12-27 19:22
They said it was "a long term project" when they made the team, man the word from these guys really is not worth much... They didn't even play any tier1 lans yet, and the only smaller lan they played they won. NBacKstab strikes again That being said, happy should've been out the top scene a while ago, not doing anything in the last 2 years.

2018-12-27 15:07
It's the right move but it came at a bad time, especially considering their claims of it being a long term project and that they don't intend to change players that fast. hltv.org/news/25074/vitality-this-is-not.. And they change players after 2 months and no lans
2018-12-27 15:20
Just joshing ya homie. Teams don’t stick together long enough. Or VP sticks together too long lol. But it’s interesting that they got an igl when they already have one.
2018-12-27 15:25
Well if Alex becomes igl then nbk back to support

I think that they will try a certain period of time with this lineup and see after that if a change is nessesary. Vitality have the objective to be on the top 10 and more so the expections are high. I hope that RpK will keep a level that can make Vitality win.

Yes. He moved to France when he was 10 and moved back to UK when he was 20 isch. "He moved to France at the age of ten, then returned to the United Kingdom ten years later where he currently resides.[1]"

The "details" are from another website my friend :D Not in the article (i think) :) Its from this: liquipedia.net/counterstrike/ALEX_(Briti.. Yes ofc, this roster change is really good for Vitality (if it happens). Because ALEX can play Lurker role and Entry.

ALEX is a very good player to pick up, maybe the best Vitality could get. He’s pretty solid skillwise and has good gamesense. He was overrated back when he was playing in sub-tier french teams in 2014-2015, but since he joined LDLC he reached a very good level individually and collectivelly. He’s surely ready to join Vitality. Only problem are his health issues, which I hope will be fixed for him. GL Alexand3r

Why not AmaNEk ? Maybe NBK is already tired of being the IGL ? To be honest, I think NBK is a fucking rat, you can't fucking trust this guy, everytime he states something he does the opposite. He should just stick to being a player instead of trying to be a diva.
2018-12-27 14:56
Guys Alex is a good choice, he had good result on ldlc bring the team in top 20 hltv with his in game lead, if he take the lead of vitality it could be a Nice moove nbk will Côme back stronger even if he dont he's a vert good player huge skill and Nice gamesense so much better than happy

Who cares about "his style" when he wasn't even IGLing (it was NBK who was leading) ?
2018-12-27 15:21
I'm talking about his playstlye not his style of calling / IGL. Whenever I watched them it was Happy last man standing.. getting kills at the end of the round.. always lower ADR than his teammates. I just honestly think he is "baiting" too much, its basically apEX and Zywoo doing most of the hard work with NBK and RpK playing kind of supportive roles IMO
2018-12-27 16:37

Thanks for your reply. Yeah i agree with you but would say that RpK is also some sort of "problem" (not enough impact as well). NBK is pretty average also btw.
2018-12-27 16:42
I agree with you an RpK but from what I've seen hes more of a teamplayer.. and NBK is underrated imo, hes such a smart and experienced player, can play almost every role so I dont mind him in the team. In the future they could think about swapping RpK for a player with more firepower maybe

Imo this is a good move, but if vitality can only make one move on their roster, they should replace RpK first. From what I've seen from vitality, he has been worse than happy... But if they can change 2, they should go for amanek too. Ir maybe go for a dedicated Awper to give more freedom to zywoo, so it would be +Alex +toinou/amanek - happy -RpK But on their other hand, already changing? At least give it a shit at the major, wont win it anyway so....

It was a b8, would still want to see DEVIL come back to see what he can do in a lower tier team (not a supposedly prestigious NV team that was dying at the time he was in).

Why does no one want Scream ?
2018-12-27 16:38
NBK probably can't handle better players than him. eg. happy, scream, kio, shox
2018-12-27 17:41
How does he handle ZywOo then LUL Must not be handling many players at the moment btw xD

2018-12-27 17:53
This is a dead team built around ZyWoo. The day hè leaves, the team is over. Doesnt really matter who they replace as long its not the fat baguette.
2018-12-27 17:55
ZywOo should be playing with kenny and shox in G2 under a competent IGL, to save french CS

Who is the competent IGL on g2?
2018-12-28 09:25
No one , I was exactly saying they needed to add one ( maj3r ? ALEX ? Davidp ?? ex6 back but "free to do what he wants " this time ?? )

NBK- |

Oh I see. Imo the talent level on both teams are pretty equal, the missing element is clearly an IGL on both sides but NBK isnt doing bad
2018-12-28 20:58
I'd say not as good as it could be if they could get over politics... If only they could make a team with the world class rifler ( shox ), world class awper ( kenny ) , world class hybrid ( zywoo ) , then chose an IGL, and world class support ( Kio ? NBK ) ?? Sadly this will probably never happen unless they are dropped/ threatened to be dropped by their orgs.. And at the moment I think G2 clearly will emerge as the better team, despite Zywoo, because NBK's lead seems to be as questionable as shox's but NBK and RpK's skill is really suspect atm. And I'm not sold on ALEX either if he doesn't IGL..

NBK- |

And bodyy's skill isnt questionable? G2 should and always should have been the #1 french team they had the 3 best French players of all time but right now the teams are quite equal, need to see them at the major to really see if either one will be successful. Rpk can always be replaced just like happy.
2018-12-29 22:03
bodyy is awful but so are RpK and NBK atm. They clearly have a higher ceiling but we haven't seen it in ages ( since his illness for RpK, and NBK isn't exactly helped by IGLing )
2018-12-30 20:37
Maj3r shox ZywOo kenny apEX/amaNEk/kio ?

I havent followed ALEX much, can someone tell me is he good or is this a good thing that hes going to vitality?
2018-12-27 20:40
not sure if he is better than happy..it s not really a upgrade..or a little one
2018-12-28 01:33
They need to change things up that's for sure

well tej kohli is a brit..... and he just invested 20 mil into the team so if he wants his favourite player on the team they kinda have to do it
2018-12-28 00:23
probably amanek play only wiht devoduvek, just like shox and smithz in the past.. for sure amanek was their first choice as they already tried to contract him earlier
