Vitality target shox, kioShiMa - Report

Vitality have identified Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon and Fabien "⁠kioShiMa⁠" Fiey as their primary targets to replace Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt, according to a report from 1pv.fr.

The French giants are currently in the market for a new player after benching NBK- in the aftermath of the StarLadder Major, reportedly due to friction within the squad, who failed to meet expectations in Berlin.

shox is believed to be assessing his options after reports in France suggested that he and Lucas "⁠Lucky⁠" Chastang are on their way out of G2, who have slowed down since the runner-up finish at the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals. The French team, who crashed out the StarLadder Major in the New Legends Stage, have reportedly engaged in negotiations with CR4ZY over highly-rated duo Nemanja "⁠nexa⁠" Isaković and Nemanja "⁠huNter-⁠" Kovač.

shox and kioShiMa are high on Vitality's shortlist

kioShiMa has been without a team since April 1, when he was released by Cloud9 after spending almost five months under the North American organisation. In an interview with HLTV.org conducted the following month - at a time when all was going well with Vitality and G2 -, the two-time Major champion stated that would like to end his career in a French team.

A move for shox would require Vitality to splash the cash, but a transfer could be aided by the good relationship between the two organisations. Dan "⁠apEX⁠" Madesclaire and NBK- himself were acquired from G2 when Vitality entered CS:GO, in October 2018.

Vitality are in a race against time to finalise their roster ahead of BLAST Pro Series Moscow, kicking off Friday. It is currently unclear whether the French organisation will be able to secure a visa for the new player, leaving their attendance at the tournament in jeopardy.

alex's leading both sides, shox role would be to lurk on every map as a t but as a ct, vitality will lack some since shox always played rotation but it's alex role. for kio, he's not very good at everything but can do anything so idk

They said in an interview when NBK was benched that they wouldn’t have 2 IGLs anymore, at least that’s what I understood.

KQLY's VAC ban caused alot of sponsors of Titan to leave, because they did not want to be associated with a cheater, which is understandable. So yeah, KQLY played a big role in how the Titan org ended.

Bc shox benched apex and NBK because he thought they were the problem in G2
2019-09-09 16:47
and apex benched NBK because he thought he was a problem in vitality
2019-09-09 17:00
the 4 players of vitality won't change, there is only one spot and it's either kio or shox, it's more kio for now since he's free agent and vitality needs a player for blast. maybe they'll take him as a tryout then consider shox case
2019-09-09 15:37
Vitality and G2 esports has good relationships tho(as the article says) maybe they won't even go through buyout of shox
2019-09-09 15:41
That's not even a possibility, he has a high commercial value and a compensation is needed
2019-09-09 15:46
Could be a straight up trade between nbk and shox though.
2019-09-09 16:22
nbk won't join G2
2019-09-09 16:23
I don't know about that, the whole roster has basically changed with just Kenny remaining now. Maybe he fancies igling with that lineup if he can select the player to replace lucky.
2019-09-09 16:23
g2 is not even an option for nbk, he's going international for sure
2019-09-09 16:25
Yeah yeah we heard all that before only to see the frenchies go into other french lineups over and over.
2019-09-09 16:25
g2 is willing to go international too, they won't acquire french players, that would be a failure for ocelote, if they can't get nexa/hunter, they'll get other international players
2019-09-09 16:27
My bet is that the Crazy players is just step 1 After next major, they’ll change 2 more players or 3 if they don’t retain challenger slot, and go full international
2019-09-09 17:50
you miss th drama between apex , nbk and shox ?

2019-09-10 07:56
Agreed, ive been following Vitality since they formed, RPK is the most underrated player on Vitality, his impact in impossible situations is overlooked. He has managed to set up great clutch situations for Zywoo aswell, i'd even say that without RPK, Zywoo would have atleast 30% less of his awesome clutches. He wont be kicked for sure.
2019-09-09 15:57
Exactly.. and under the circumstances rpk plays in, he does it really well+ supporting.
2019-09-09 20:45
him and Zywoo are holding this team together imo, you can't have 5 players yelling in the mic at the same time, you need some soldiers doing the job silently
2019-09-09 16:13
+1 alex would have problems with either shox or kioshima now, like he did with nbk. Ideal scenario is shox joining under an ultimatum of no igl involvement. Alex needs full authority over apex and shox if this team wants top 1 and not to experience the same problem again

2019-09-09 15:33
shox is a degrade to nbk in terms of drama youre very mistaken about shox. The problem with shox in teams is his motivation, mood and work ethic + emotion heavy leading to wanting smithzz in every team. Unlike nbk shox is a very respectful and a loving guy. While nbk is the og two face notorious for backstabbing, selfishness and ego. Also if you dont have a brain and havent figured already shox doesnt want to lead, he gave amanek the lead recently and in 2018 he brought ex6 stating he should lead. Later on there was no other option Moral of the story; shox is problematic, but cant be compared to nbk Both destroyed teans but shox is better.

2019-09-09 15:59
Yes they're both washed up but they're enough skilled to become ranked 1# because they have a super weapon called Zywoo !
2019-09-09 18:21
+ great igl, alex. If shox finds form, its literally ggs for csgo. prime shox and zywoo would be something never seen before, if two players of those ceilings were to both peak they wouldnt drop a map, but i doubt we see prime shox ever again, he is old and married, but i hope we can atleast see him close to his prime again. All is on alex, he needs heavy authority to control shox and apex + needs to use shox perfectly and refind shoxies star identity safe route is kioshima who would suck a dick for an another chance at this point. But then again, its really not much of an upgrade, they could be a little better and consistent and thats it, if they want the top they need shox
2019-09-09 19:13
Shox prime days are over, he is still a good player but we wont see 2014-2015 shox again.

Idk what i'd prefer actually. Shox has better firepower, but it would need him to accept not being IGL since Alex has taken the lead, and his relationship with Apex is a question. On the other hand there's Kioshima, a true good player, but he has not been playing for months now idk if he would fit in Vitality...

yes i know he played in FPL but he's had hard times actually (not many wins). Shox is a better player skillwise but we need to consider the environment..

At this point get both and remove apEX, he doesn't get along well with shox -NBK +shox -apEX +kio
2019-09-09 15:37
Kio not entry tho
2019-09-09 15:38
He can entry, shox can as well, even RPK. It's not a pb. The pb would be apEX and shox together as they can't stand each other, see clips.twitch.tv/FantasticLovelyBaconTwit..
2019-09-09 15:40
rpk can entry
2019-09-09 17:07
Not really, he shines the most as 2nd entry
2019-09-09 17:54
If this is true, I think this team would have potential
2019-09-09 15:36
get shox as lurker/rotator and let ALEX igl, easy as fuck

Oh ok. It would make more sense for kio then bc shox a more vocal player.
2019-09-09 15:41
Yes but that wont make them much better, they would do a little better. They would have taken kio who is free 10x already, but they are aware of what their potential could be with shox, and he probably has a big buyout its very in the air right now. if alex controls and brings the best out of shox, they would be top 1

once again i'm sad about this changes, but i must admit nexa hunter kennys amanek jackz .... looks good. and shox is a great player he would bring more firepower in Vitality ... just if he's ok not to be IGL.
2019-09-09 15:41
Looks absolutely awful. Inter teams usually dosen't work, and this won't work for sure/
2019-09-09 15:43

France bjjthibz
idk man, nexa is a good IGL able to frag even when he's leading. Hunter can be an absolute beast. if they really are going international, i think this lineup would be good
2019-09-09 15:44
Remember when mix well was added ? Big big communications problems, and he learnt French really fast... so imagine Kenny at least playing in English, and amanek leading in English. It will be an epic fail, mark my words. But anyway, I’m pretty sure that Ocelotés plan is to go full inter after next major, or add 2 more inter players after next major if they retain challenger slot. But I agree that inter teams don’t work. It’s just national teams that succès right now and it will allways be, except for few honeymoon periods like foR FaZe

2019-09-09 17:56

2019-09-09 15:40
Pls shox>>>>>>kioshitma
2019-09-09 15:41
Kio is rly not an upgrade. Non Igl shox would be pretty cool tho.
2019-09-09 15:42
So if stars aligned, Shox and Apex have worked out their differences and Shox realizes that he needs to shut up and shoot: Alex (igl) Zywoo (awp) Apex (entry) Shox (2nd in) Kio (support) Looks super good to me.
2019-09-09 15:42
shox and apex in same team is recipe for disaster
2019-09-09 15:48
I need an explanation
2019-09-09 17:20
They actually didnt collide in game, it seems like apex who had a problem with shox's lead ( very justified, shox changed shit after every tournament and was never satisfied, they could find no consistency, shox was very lost in this period and tried the best, but apex was completely right ) so if they both just bowed down to alex it would be great, as they dont collide in game, actually they couls compliment each other with apex being the aggresive space maker and shox the one utilising this space
2019-09-09 19:21
+1 This lineup would be good. Hopefully they will get rid of Mr.RpK i think its essential for the success of this team. But apEX needs to step up his game hes been playing like trash for a while now.
2019-09-09 15:48
it's either kio or shox, not both rpk isn't kicked nor benched

2019-09-09 17:10
Shoxs differences were more with NBK than Apex imo. Apex just followed NBK cause it was Envy core with Kenny. Also Shox would make a lot more sense with RPK, both appreciate each other from the 2016 G2 period.

Shoxie can still be a monster. Just depends on if he respects Alex Prime Zywoo and Shoxie can do some real damage
2019-09-09 15:55
true but i dont want to see him in vitality ffs :/
2019-09-09 16:42
Why wouldnt you? If youre a g2 fan primarily thats ok, but if youre following shox, there is no reason to dislike current vitality except apex maybe, who didnt have near big of a problem with shox as nbk. zywoo and rpk are listeners, shox is good with rpk and alex is a very good igl if shox respects alex and alex uses hin good, we could actually see inform shox again
2019-09-09 19:25
If this happens i may become a vitality fan.
2019-09-09 15:56
No reason not to. NBK was the reason for me, apex wont hold a grudge with shox. Rpk is the most likable guy, zywoo doesnt have an ego built up it seems and he requires no control and alex is a very good igl, who proved that the French need to stop recycling and look for youngsters

2019-09-09 16:11
Well I was thinking if they want both shox and kio then they will kick 1 more than NBK, and that would probably be alex, or maybe apex. So IF they kick alex then I guess kio would be IGL?
2019-09-09 16:26

2019-09-09 16:51
Vitality need more firepower and who can carry them when zywoo has a day off, probably shox since they already have RpK as a sp player.
2019-09-09 16:53
apex and rpk the baits, shox and zywoo tbe baiters with alex filling in and changing his role with apex sometimes. Good structure
2019-09-09 19:30
If only they could add both... I'd have a boner. shox & kio are both looking to just be players and would do anything to stay there. shox had his hands forced to IGL in the first place when the org wanted to make some changes (Ex6tenZ to be a regular player which he refused - so shox was forced to IGL, remember that). And kioShiMa will take this chance to show his worth in the french scene again. I'm sure he was eager to play with them with all the fails he had after EnVyUs.

2019-09-09 17:27
i think you're blind, alex has stepped up a lot in this team without him or his igl skills, vitality woudn't even be under top 5...
2019-09-09 17:31
shox, apex, rpk will not work
2019-09-09 17:34
The problem i see is that shox might be blabling into IGL way too much (especially if their results wont be great) and it might mean tension level million. If he will just rifle and shoot heads, everything is fine... Kio is big questionmark.

Vita-shoxie, FaZe-kennyS please
2019-09-09 20:31
It is more likely to see Kio with Vitality considering they have been talking for a while now and Kio is free. Moreover, lately it has been made very clear that some orgs are ready to spend a lot of money to get a strong line up and Ocelot will probaly use this opportunity to get a lot of money. Shox is more than a good player, he is a great asset marketing-wise and he can create "hype" by himself if he is announced in a new line up. It does not matter much if Shox is willing to join VItality, he is under contract and he will be released only if Vitality is ready to write a big big check. Also, It is 90% sure that no one else will be kicked from Vitality. If for some reason it happens Apex is more likely to leave than Rpk. Apex had some issues lately with the roles he was playing and Rpk is a very underestimated asset for Vitality. Please stop fantasizing on line ups thinking that adding up the most skilled players is enough to win competitions. Apex and Shox's "issues" won't stop them from playing in the same team even if there could be issues on the long run but there could be issues with Kio as well. TLDR: Kio to VItality 80% / Shox 20%

The more time they need the more likely its gonna be shox imo. Kioshima is free, if the team preferes him over shox the deal would already have been done and the announcement wohld have already came considering Blast is in a few days. The fact that shox with a big buyout is still in talks over free kio screams that the team wants shox. It may be up to the Vitality management to decide whether the buyout is worth shox's impact over kioshima. Mind that if the team wants shox, i really dont think vitality can force them onto kio, it would make a negative mood
2019-09-09 23:20
It makes sense indeed the longer the announcement takes the more likely it is to see Shox with the bees but It is too early to deduce anything. Vitality will probably be in contact with G2 anyways to check all the options they have before making anything official. I don't believe any Vitality player would throw a tantrum to play with Shox.

Does anyone know who would Kio substitute? I hope it's not RpK, and instead they get rid of apeX. -Shox -Zywoo -RpK -ALEX -Kio And i can finally support a french team again.
2019-09-09 21:26
It is unlikely to see any other player being kicked right now, but if they decided to make room for both players, Apex would be the one being kicked (in the current situation).
2019-09-10 00:25
gg disband nbk is like zeus in the french scene, he just knows how to build functional lineups. He gets kicked every time and then makes the next decent french team while the people who kicked him end up in t3.
2019-09-09 21:56
actually sad... they forgot they've beaten Astralis apparently and just blame their mistakes on "issues"... apEX is a snake, he just wanted to give more of his input while he's an ok smartish type of player, he's no good for secondary calling etc. His playstyle and attitude are the worst, he literally doesn't know how to play the B on inferno and A mirage as an anchor... NBK and Zywoo had to replace him on B against Avangar to win the map lmao. apEX that doesn't know how to play positions but kicks NBK. Fair enough you had decent stats apEX but jesus you managed to make your team lose Mirage on your own. Remember he likes a lot to his "input" on Mirage so yhea...
2019-09-09 23:25
NBK is THE french snake, but apEX should not be a secondary caller, he's doing so many stupid shits... and anyone can see it.
2019-09-10 14:33
That's exactly what I said ^^ read it again and it's apEX "two faced" toledo
2019-09-10 19:22

2019-09-10 04:33
I do not understand whats the problem with some shitheads on here who say shox is bad rifler and not in his game .. Lol he is still better than half the French players .. Actually he's the third best right now after zywoo and kenny .. sometimes does a better job than kenny even He ruined titan ? Retards titans was a economical crisis . He ruined envyus? Lol ..he was tired of happy and his same level igl Who do you think is a better anchor at b site shox or kio ? You want your team to win with your choice of players ..lol thats not how cs works .. Shox on his days Carries the likes of kennyS And still does all the fragging when not at his full potential .
2019-09-10 08:34
Better than 99% of french players Pleaseeee Vita not kio this guy is finished and ruined NV
2019-09-10 08:55
Shox already said he doesnt want to play with apex anymore, apex said the same about shox lmao
2019-09-10 09:41
Apex is trash anyway they should remove him aswell
2019-09-10 11:57
-apex +shox pls
2019-09-10 11:56
+1 bro, add shox & kio
2019-09-10 14:34
shox = great firepower, but questionable chemistry within team kio = decent firepower, and good chemistry within team
2019-09-10 14:12
shox in good relationships with everyone in Vitality except NBK who leave. kio toxic.
2019-09-13 22:51
kio isnt as toxic anymore man, but shox can likely be an addition now that you explained that it was nbk who hated shox
2019-09-14 03:41
who else is getting cut in Vitality besides NBK tho??
2019-09-10 15:45
shox maybe
2019-09-10 16:19
NBK and Apex went to Vitality, because they didn't want play with shox, now they want to play with shox. French scene in a nutshell
2019-09-10 16:59
Don't talk shit if you know about french cs nothing. It's shox didn't want to play with NBK and didn't like Apex aggressive playstyle. Now NBK leave Vitality and shox can join like rifler, not igl.
2019-09-13 22:49
