Happy officially out of Vitality; joins LDLC *

Vitality have parted ways with Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer, who has now been announced as a new member of LDLC.

Vitality benched Happy late last year after the team did not manage to achieve their desired results, which prompted Alex "ALEX" McMeekin to step into the spot left in the roster by Happy.

Happy will join former teammates xms and SIXER in LDLC

The French veteran now joins Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli, Christophe "SIXER" Xia, Alexandre "xms" Forté, and trial Rodolphe "roden" Bianco in LDLC, as had been reported by 1pv.fr.

During his time in Vitality, Happy won DreamHack Open Atlanta 2018, but was unable to raise any other silverware. Having signed with LDLC, his first chance to compete on LAN will come at this weekend's Charleroi Esports event in Belgium.

With Happy's departure, Vitality is:

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

France Rémy "XTQZZZ" Quoniam (coach)

LDLC's starting five is now:

Turkey Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli
France Christophe "SIXER" Xia
France Alexandre "xms" Forté
France Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer
France Rodolphe "roden" Bianco (trial)

2019-04-08 22:04
Bahahahahahahahahaah I want your drugs!
2019-04-09 00:28
I mean everything he said was technically true lol They both won 2 majors, but Happy carried this team to one of them :P
2019-04-09 07:21
carried? you mean baited?
2019-04-09 07:55
Both. He carried and baited, much like coldzera, to earn his Major MVP.
2019-04-09 08:31
Cold isnt igl and doesnt bait his whole team. Happy did and it worked for a while, also as I remember it was during this stupid CZ meta.
2019-04-09 08:40
Happy didn't bait his whole either during this event. I don't know why you mentioned that cold isn't IGL because it only makes Happy's MVP more impressive. Both of them baited, and both of them carried their teams to a Major win. Facts.
2019-04-09 08:45
happy was using his teammates to get kills (that's baiting), it was basically the only way he fragged. he was never even remotely close to cold skillwise, I don't get how you can even compare them

Serbia ravi0ll1 
cold isnt really that impressive skill wise either
2019-04-09 16:45
I never said they were close skill-wise, but there is a comparison to be made if you just look at the facts: 1. Both won 2 majors. 2. Both won Major MVPs (cold 2, happy 1). 3. Both were/are known baiters. Whoever baits more back then/nowadays is up for debate, but it's hard to deny that they both have this baiting play-style to pad their stats.

Happy is not baiting, he is lurking. Cold is baiting because he always the last one who arrived at the battlefield
2019-04-10 13:50
Dude did you even watch Happy in his prime? Saying he didn't have skill is laughable. His aim actually used to be extremely sharp.
2019-04-10 17:13
He got the MVP from the major with the deag ace. He was actually good at the time
2019-04-09 02:18
That deag ace was from an event in London in the grand finals against TSM. Wasn't DH Winter 2014

2019-04-09 04:41
finally where he belongs. in tier 3. happy is so washed up. i say that because he has the same system that he had in 2013-14. and hasnt tried to change his own playstyle or style of leading in any of the newer teams and chances he has had. he just seems like a grumpy old man stuck in his ways

Dude you're calling a 2 time major winner who made Device look like a joke in his prime a "baiter kid". Just because a player falls off doesn't mean you can insult them. When Device eventually falls off I'm not gonna call him ecovice.
2019-04-10 17:10
Watch one of his POV demos and look carefully for the strat, cobblestone for example back in the days. He played the perfect lurk and information gathering role there. Silvers in twitch chat call him baiter when he's the last alive on the other side of the map, but don't see the bigger picture
2019-04-09 09:01
The problem is Silvers think their opinion actually matters when looking at pro CSGO. I legit know people who I played with 2 years ago who hated on Happy who actually dropped into Gold Nova and stayed there.

Good thing you're not gonna waste time this time around, teaching you common sense turned out to be useless the previous shots. Somebody needs physical lessons. And of course you can take any victories you want, you clearly need them, such a word warrior this web never knew before. Day!

Projecting to the max bro pathetic.
2019-04-09 04:32
Dude ALEX is probably in the prime of his career and he can barely put up above a 1.00 rating. Happy in his peak had a 1.15-1.20+ rating while IGLing, 2nd awping, and lurking. Even though Happy has completely fallen off his old level he still puts up better numbers than ALEX. Before you talk about impact, apEX and Zywoo get most of the impact kills on Vitality. Comparing Happy to ALEX is a complete joke.

I'm not comparing them at their peaks I'm comparing them currently and no he doesnt put up better numbers and clearly has had and still has ego and motivation issues. He was kicked from vitality very quickly and that was his last chance to be on a tier 1 team. His impact is intangible hes a better teammate and support player than happy and has better comms and a better attitude, not to mention hes younger and hungrier.
2019-04-09 04:37
I think you mean 'tangible'. ALEX currently has a 0.95 rating. Happy only dipped that low at his absolute career worst over a year ago. Saying ALEX has better numbers than Happy is factually incorrect, even in their current form. Before Happy lost his stats due to inactivity he had a 1.00-1.05 rating. You can argue about his impact or whatever, but I'm just gonna stop talking to you if you're seriously gonna argue that 1.00-1.05 < 0.95.

Uhm no I mean what I said In·tan·gi·ble adjective 1. unable to be touched or grasped; not having physical presence. You come off as quite dimwitted but ill engage. First of all I literally never mentioned rating and never said Alex had better numbers just that happy didnt put up numbers worth keep over alex with his issues they have very similar stats but happys playstyle has much less impact in the server. However when looking at rating you have to remeber that happy is a passive lurk player who tries to clutch often and alex is a support and they put up similar numbers when role wise happy SHOULD have better numbers than Alex. I'm now repeating myself but for your sake I will do so - Alex has better comms (intangible aspect) better attitude (intangible aspect) and can help co-igl and manage parts of the map with a fresher style than happy.
2019-04-09 17:09
Dude you're a fucking idiot, no one uses intangible like that. Go read a book for once and see how many times intangible is used like that, it's literally a redundant word in this context and any good editor would remove it. Something like 'tangible impact' is used metaphorically to describe something that can't be felt physically, but its presence is so great it can be described as so. I get you've probably only read books for school, but as someone who writes and reads as a hobby using intangible like that is something no one does and you sound absolutely retarded. This isn't really up for debate. "no he doesnt put up better numbers and clearly has had and still has ego and motivation issues" Quote from your comment presumably about Happy. You clearly said Happy doesn't put up better numbers than ALEX right here.

Wow you went on a rant about a single word (that you're wrong about) and completely ignored the entire point only to call ME an idiot. You're pathetic. And if you read below you'll clearly see that that statement was factually correct and Alex plays a much more strict role than happy. He has better utility usage and better comms and is a better overall teammate. You're wrong from the beginning if you disagree that CURRENTLY it's better to have Alex than happy. At their peaks its clear happy is the better player but he is a shell of that player and the meta has changed far too much for him to be effective.
2019-04-09 17:20
I believe it was you who originally said my correction was incorrect and went on a rant citing the dictionary definition: I believe that would make you the pathetic idiot here, but okay. "no he doesnt put up better numbers and clearly has had and still has ego and motivation issues" You talked about raw numbers here, not about role or whatever. The only thing you sent to me to justify this statement were LAN stats over the past few months which have a 0.01 rating difference. Considering ALEX does better online against top 20 teams and his rating so far in Vitality has been so atrocious, anyone with an ounce of common sense can see where this going.

So is 1.03 not > 1.02 or? The stats were YOUR argument as to why happy was more valuable not mine. Anyone can see happy gets a lot of low impact or late round kills while alex is always in the fray tradefragging and they put up similar numbers. Who cares where it's going, that just detracts from the original point. Alex > happy currently
2019-04-09 17:32
You do realize the rating 2.0 update accounts for impact right? Or are you just too new to realize that and thought it just accounted for stats? If he had better impact it'll be reflected in his rating, currently his rating on Vitality is 0.95.

hltv.org/stats/players/compare/7429/Happ.. Impact rating still exists as it's own stat but yes 2.0 adjusts for it. Anyway you can clearly see the difference in impact there Happys rating on vitality is: KICKED
2019-04-09 17:40
Your argument for ALEX being better than Happy has devolved into Happy was kicked and ALEX wasn't. Jesus Christ why I am I even bothering with you? If you had any knowledge about the history of the game, you'd understand why this is wrong.

Lmfao? Alex puts up better numbers vs top 20 teams on LAN, and has better comms, utility, and teamwork than happy. It's not just that he was kicked, but that clearly does tell something about happy. And not something positive. The knowledge of the games history is irrelevant. Were comparing the players RIGHT NOW. Why do you keep talking about the past?
2019-04-10 02:29
Dude do you not understand my argument or are you purposefully misinterpreting it? I was talking about the history of the game in the context that just because a player is kicked over another player, doesn't mean he's better. Your reading comprehension and writing skills make it hard to have a basic conversation with you.

I never said that Alex was better than happy STRICTLY because he was kicked. However being kicked is almost always a negative mark against you. Alex is a better player CURRENTLY for many reasons.
2019-04-10 02:34
Your painting ALEX out as this smart player who does the dirty work so he has a subpar rating. And how do you know how well ALEX comms? Does Vitality send you a recording?

United States Jammin800k 
That's exactly what he is. He just locks down a part of a map, usually gets traded or gets a single kill and the round is over on T side. Much more useful than happys mistimed lurks and low impact end round kills. Alex actually establishes map control and has solid utility usage to delay and lock down opponents. What I know about the comms is purely due to interviews that vitality players and coaches have done. hltv.org/news/25843/nbk-we-couldnt-see-a.. hltv.org/news/25882/alex-well-be-able-to.. hltv.org/news/26062/apex-it-feels-like-w..
2019-04-10 02:43
Brah one of those articles literally says ALEX basically plays the same role as Happy. Idk why you're gushing over how much better ALEX plays when he's doing the same thing. On the comms thing it's extremely ambiguous as to whether they're talking about just improving the kind of calls they're making as a team after Happy's departure or ALEX brought on some new way to call effectively. I'm not gonna bother going over interpretations of apEX's barely passable English.

That has to be the most backwards interpretation ever. The article is about getting players to realize their full potential based on noticed intangible aspects by coaches, not about changing the word. Making (passive attributes) into (active attributes)
2019-04-09 17:36
Dude you're like a brick wall, they literally used tangible metaphorically exactly how I described in the article you cited. What the article is about has nothing to do with how they used the word in the title? One thing I notice about you is when you're wrong you use a logical fallacy like the one above to try to get out of it. If you disagree with me, don't reply with some bullshit about how you don't use logical fallacies or whatever, respond with this and only this: how does the topic of the article conflict with how they used tangible in the title?

Funny how your only way to win this argument about IF HAPPY IS MORE USEFUL THAN ALEX is to attempt to claim that I'm using a word incorrectly while providing 0 reasons that prove that happy is the better player currently. Please quote a single logical fallacy i used, let's break it down and see which fallacy it was and how I used it. You can't just claim im using them with 0 citations. To answer your question the topic of the article is getting players to realize their full potential so I dont see any conflict at all.
2019-04-09 17:46
Dude you're the one who started the argument about the word. I literally pointed it out and you went on a rant and cited the dictionary definition. I guess we can start off with purposefully misinterpreting my "rant" when it was you who originally went on a rant citing the dictionary definition. If "tangible" was used correctly in the title metaphorically, that means I'm correct. Do you even realize what you're saying anymore dude lmao.

False you started the argument in post #291 and followed up by calling me a "fucking idiot" for how I used the word in #301. Both intangible and tangible can be used metaphorically, how ignorant can you be?
2019-04-09 18:32
"You come off as quite dimwitted but ill engage." Started with the most pompous insult you can think of. Do you not what a metaphor is? You were talking about literal intangible qualities, which makes the word redundant and non-metaphorical in the context you used it in. I corrected you in one sentence and you dedicated basically your entire comment to "proving" me wrong. Then, you turn around and say I insulted you and I started ranting. Do you understand the problem here or is it still going over your head?
2019-04-10 02:24

The problem here is that you are deflecting from the original argument of Alex being a more useful player than happy to argue if a word is used metaphorically or not. Its pathetic and a waste of time and I've already destroyed you in this argument with objectivity and facts.
2019-04-10 02:26
Okay Jammin, please explain to me what ALEX does that is so valuable in your opinion? That justifies his objectively bad rating. I don't think Happy is that good anymore either, ALEX just isn't an upgrade.

Stats 12 months on LAN (cause happy has like 0 data this year) Filter on top 50 and top 20 shows alex has better stats, so objectively you were wrong. Not to mention the playstyle, attitude, comm, and ego issues I've mentioned. hltv.org/stats/players/matches/7429/Happ.. Vs hltv.org/stats/players/matches/8184/ALEX..

2019-04-09 17:15
You're seriously trying to argue on a 0.01 rating difference, just wow... And it's easy to put up good numbers when you're the best player (or close to it) on your team even against other good teams. Look at ALEX now that he doesn't have his entire team setting him up and he has to play a somewhat harder role. What happened?

You're the one focusing so heavily on rating, I just did that to prove how moronic you were being. I'm the one mentioning his true qualities such as utility usage, comms, tactics, and attitude. At the same time where is Happy at all this year? Cant even compare them stat wise because happy has no data this year. And now hes starting a team with sixer and maj3r, doomed to fail. Obviously Alex's stats are going to dip with a role swap and better competition, thats common sense. Doesnt change my original statement that hes still more useful to a roster than happy currently is.
2019-04-09 17:28
Dude you do realize you're the one who clearly stated that Happy doesn't put up better numbers than ALEX. If you want me to "move on", you can admit you're wrong for once instead of complaining about my "fixation" on the topic.

And I was right in saying so. Currently and last year alex puts up better numbers. During each of their times on vitality, alex has better numbers and is currently the better player.

hltv.org/stats/players/7429/Happy?startD.. hltv.org/stats/players/8184/ALEX?startDa.. Each of these should about reflect their time on Vitality.

Happy hasn't even played in over 4 months. You're really so desperate to win an argument you're gonna filter for 6 months when Happy's only been active for a solid month or so out of that 6 months. Try filtering for 12 months for both players and see what you get. You probably did and it didn't support your argument so you ignored it.

Not even sure what you're trying to prove. Even if those stats did show happy had better numbers you still have to account for playstyle, utility, comms, co-IGL tactics (vitalitys strats are deeper with alex), and attitude/ego. All of which favor Alex.
2019-04-09 18:04
Come on Jammin, again with the fallacies. I'm not trying to prove anything, you keep insisting you're right, so I'm forced to continue arguing. Just admit you're wrong on this one and we can talk about impact.

By 0.01 over a very specific time span. Online Happy does better. And ALEX was basically a star player on LDLC, people worked around him to set him up for frags. We'll just wait until ALEX gets a chance on LAN to see if he's any good okay?

I admit that his 2 majors are deserved but now he's out of date.... In addition, a multitude of good players are available! (kio, bodyy, davidp, devoduvek...)
2019-04-09 13:25
The absolute best lineup they could've had with the available players is Happy, Scream, Devoduvek, Kioshima, and davidp. This still has Happy in it either way. Before you say Bodyy should replace Happy, Bodyy is honestly not that good, he had about 2-3 years to develop as a player and has nothing to show for it. At least Happy can IGL and maybe pick up the awp, a huge problem Happy's teams have had is the lack of a good awper. NBK is still a bad IGL, anyone can lead a team with 4 very decent players and Zywoo to top 10.

2019-04-08 20:11
Three in game leaders and two support players. The logic here is literally retarded

He is half French
2019-04-08 22:34
Yeah I doubt this roster will ever crack top 20 but hopefully they'll prove me wrong
2019-04-08 20:33
I’m not even sure they’ll crack top 30 man. Three in game leaders what kind of shit is that
2019-04-08 22:33
Right now they have two support players and three in game leaders. Honestly pretty brain-dead roster

Why not go full French?
2019-04-08 21:06
Pretty sure Maj3r is French, he just moved to Turkey for CSGO if I'm correct.
2019-04-08 21:50
Thank you, did not know that. It explains a lot...
2019-04-08 22:08
He is half French, Hence why he still has the Turkish flag by his name that’s his home country

Was Happy IGL of Vitality at any point? I thought NBK was their IGL from the beginning.

Happy deserves faze! Faze doesn't have a true igl
2019-04-08 21:28
I think he needs to prove himself again, but he isn't getting any younger, hopefully he can get on a good team after this and win another major.
2019-04-08 21:51
Dude happy just got let go from vitality why in the world Faze go pick up dead weight
2019-04-08 22:30
Rofl if they need an igl, Happy is the last person to consider.
2019-04-09 00:37
kioShiMa is one of the assessors for Happy grabbed both the Majors but still a rover

LDLC 2-0 Astralis next major final, you heard it here first.
2019-04-08 21:40

2019-04-08 21:42
I have to agree. We were waiting days to see this as the team? Ffs they won’t even make top 20
2019-04-08 22:29
now it's official, rename yourselves to THE_BAGUETTIAN_LEFTOVERS
2019-04-08 21:53
XDXDXDXD they talk this team up only to be an absolute washed up roster XDXD
2019-04-08 22:28
Happy's gotten so fat, too many baguettes with cheese
2019-04-08 21:55
He just quit smoking. After all of his teammate hated him because of it.
2019-04-09 00:12
Nice! Good Luck!
2019-04-08 22:02
2 IGLs 1 IGL-sniper 2 supports
2019-04-08 22:05
More like 3igl and 2 support players. This the most brain dead roster ever.
2019-04-08 22:36
brain brain brain dead dead
2019-04-09 16:52
NO ONE CARES ABOUT THIS TEAM!!!!!!!!!
2019-04-08 22:28
🤡🤡🤡team
2019-04-08 22:36
Simple could literally 1v5 this team and still win 16-0.
2019-04-08 22:37
Good. This keeps the team from securing at least 3rd-4th place at Starladder Major in Berlin
2019-04-08 22:38
This roaster is a bad idea for me it 's a really bad one let's see their results in big tournment ;)

2019-04-08 23:14
Are you French people really hyped ? LDLC doesn’t look good at all to be honest, they’ll reach top 50, that’s it. G2 looks way more interesting right now, and vitality is a solid top 15 team...

This team have great players. Having a third french team in top 30 can be possible now. We will see

Are you serious? We dont even have 50 teams in pro Scene, so by your logic

i don't think you could make a less exciting french lineup if you tried no firepower no awper (sixer is a good hybrid but nothing more) ... jesus
2019-04-09 02:44
disband
2019-04-09 03:40
Time for him to break another team.
2019-04-09 03:45
They could've done something like this: Kioshima, Happy, Scream, Xms, Maj3r. If Happy can return to his old level this team will probably surpass Zywoo boosted Vitality.
2019-04-09 03:58
Finally the French scene can get a major again it wouldn't be possible without happy

Roden is nice trying out new talent Xms is coming back form fortnite yikes and then sixer was never a top tier awper or rifler sure he can do a ok job but nothing great major had some success on space soldier but will need to play a bigger role in ldlc and happy needs to prove that he can still igl at their 2 level very unproven team could very well be decent but I doubt it
2019-04-09 13:18
- ALEX + HAPPY - RPK + shox or kennys very good team <3
