Vitality to replace HellRaisers at StarSeries Season 7

Vitality will attend StarSeries i-League Season 7 in HellRaisers' place, StarLadder has announced.

The CIS team cite roster issues as the reason to skip the Chinese tournament as they have yet to finalise their squad after selling Özgür "woxic" Eker to mousesports, and benching Bence "DeadFox" Böröcz.

Vitality, who had finished in the second place in the European StarSeries qualifier, are currently ninth in the rankings after reaching the New Legends Stage of the IEM Katowice Major, where they were eliminated with a 2-3 record.

Vitality will return to LAN action later this week

StarSeries Season 7 will begin this Saturday with the first round of the Swiss stage, which will be played in a best-of-three setting in its entirety. The initial match-ups, along with the complete tournament schedule, will be released later on Monday, HLTV.org has learned.

The final team list for the Chinese event looks as follows:

Kio if he leaves C9 Amanek will be so good if they choose him in time :/ But yeah, apart from Kio I don't know neither
2019-03-25 13:16
kio have some beef with nbk i think ( gossip :o ) but in france ow complicate to find who can be the perfect fifth. yeah g2 have done so smart moves with jacks lucky and amanek they just need to put shox out of IGL

There is no beef between kio and apEX There were making fun of each other quite often (no in a bad way) and as I know there was once beef between apEX and someone else and kio defend apEX there

No beef between anyone on Vitality and kio (NBK and Apex at the envy time but that was not too much and kio even replayed with Happy)
2019-03-25 15:40
#84
 | 
France LanaRhoades 
He brings much than Happy atleast , but not enough for top 1 world yet. He is working hard so he is not the problem because he is a good long term player. They should remove rpk first and kio's role is rpk's role so it's perfect :D
2019-03-25 15:43
he is more smart player than happy in this decision but in firepower is not what they really need. rpk he really need to learn how to move on map this is the biggest problem on this game. because he have more aim than every body in this line up if he don't need to move :D when he lost the line and need to replace this self ... he is catastrophic :'( but i think kio have a good salary in c9 and i don't know if he want move in france again . but it's to complicate to fix this team. if i need to build a good team with only french players zywoo amanek shox nbk jackz/lucky/apex/kennys don't know for the fifth and let amanek lead ( he was igl in ldlc no ? )

ALEX was igl and amanek co-igl. But an IGL doesn't do all the calls , he is just here for the main things and structure , btw G2 is fine and vitality has potential but garbage. And you're right ALEX isn't what they need , they need firepower. And you're also right for Rpk when he is holding lines he is incredible , but he seems lost on his role , and i think it's because he lacks of confidence :/ Or his role isn't clear in his head
2019-03-25 17:43
vitality soon gonna be a catastrophe!! nbk is good on this role of lurking playing the bitch on one side of the map but they really need to fix some strat with new approach ( it's complicated for explain this in english ) for me amanek was the right call in vitality and put alex on g2 for take the lead with shox in second caller lurker i think this kind of switch can be great for both team ( maybe less for g2 :o ) for rpk he really need to improve this style of playing with a different approach. i remember in mirage he was B when he lose the direct line OMFG !!! he catch all walls when he move, stay fix like a rabbit on light of car.. but when he can stay in the position i'm sure even JESUS can't take a BP :D

G2 seems to be more structured they don't need roster changes. They can be top 3 team imo , easily. And for the long term
2019-03-25 18:19
in the top5 i think it's possible but top3 with liquid navi astralis ence !!!! maybe in half years

? NBK is a great IGL , it's not an IGL problem btw you're not french you don't know why he was underperforming (he was sick during Na'Vi match , C9 match and renegades match and maybe nip match but i'm not sure). It's just your opinion but not facts and since you are a hater your opinion is biased.
2019-03-25 17:50
