Vitality confirm shox transfer

Vitality have announced that they have completed the signing of a two-year contract with Richard "shox" Papillon, who has been transferred from G2 in what the organization described as the "most expensive transfer in Vitality's history."

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to Vitality since the conclusion of the StarLadder Major, which saw Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt depart the roster while G2 also looked to undergo changes with aims of adding CR4ZY duo Nemanja "huNter-" Kovač and Nemanja "nexa" Isaković.

The rumors were further fueled by G2's temporary addition of Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey — a player Vitality also reportedly considered —, followed by shox's official departure from the Spanish organization, which he had represented for over three-and-a-half years.

Vitality complete the anticipated transfer of shox

In Vitality, the Frenchman joins two of his former teammates from various rosters of Titan and G2, Cédric "RpK" Guipouy and Dan "apEX" Madesclaire, with whom he won several international titles under the latter banner in 2016 to 2017.

Alex "ALEX" McMeekin will remain the sole in-game leader of the team, the organization has stressed, adding that shox is replacing NBK- on a "positional, like-for-like basis", and that the decision was made by the team's coach, Rémy "XTQZZZ" Quoniam.

The announcement comes just three days before the French side's participation at DreamHack Masters Malmö, taking place on October 1-6, where Vitality are set to meet TYLOO in the opening round of Group A. They are also set to play in their first season of ESL Pro League, whose 10th season will be played in October-November, and are confirmed to play at IEM Beijing (November 7-10).

Vitality's lineup now looks as follows:

France Dan "apEX" Madesclaire
France Cédric "RpK" Guipouy
France Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut
United Kingdom Alex "ALEX" McMeekin
France Richard "shox" Papillon

France Rémy "XTQZZZ" Quoniam (coach)

Shox is going to kick Apex, Rpk, Alex. Shox is the biggest snake of french cs, he kick once apex and rpk, he is going to do it again. He is going to bring his boyfriend Smithzz back from retirement to put him in the team or at least as coach instead of Xtqz. Mark my words.

2019-09-28 17:13
Shox will not IGL
2019-09-28 17:29
Yes but the reason nbk left was cuz of ego and personality clash and replacing him with someone so similar doesn’t seem to be a good idea
2019-09-30 06:28
they had ego clash because nbk didnt like alex becoming IGL, he wanted to stay captain and call strats Shox will just help for mid round calls and will mostly lurk (ref Vitality coach interview on 1pvcs)

Nt shox. AmaneK was second IGL and became full IGL right before they kick you.

I dunno, maybe. I thought they were playing rather well for the small amount of time they've been together. I hope the move works for them. I don't believe in shox though. Moves like this always make me scratch my head like when coL released Stanislaw... Look at him now lmao. I thought coL was doing well with him and should have cut dephh or someone else.

Shox definitely has potential to have more fraghing and clutch impact than NBK if he can get his best form back. NBK is actually quite consistent though and is definitely as experienced and as smart in-game as shox. It'll be interesting. If shox is willing to take a back-seat and listen to ALEX and focus on just fragging it could work. NBK can be a whiney dick I think, never seems the easiest guy to work with.
2019-09-28 18:07
shox is a much better aimer and also a lot clutcher. If he focuses on his crosshair and stops trying to do midround calls and shit this team will improve greatly.

just hope that shoxie focus on his role and not try to IGL <3
2019-09-28 19:57
I'm sure it will be cool at first, but I'm also sure after some time, may be 4-6 months, shox will start to be the usual shox - the little bitch that always wants to be an IGL, no matter how bad it ended for his past teams, it's like NiKo - the same shitty attitude, the same result in the end. So I'd say poor Vitality. But in the first couple of months they may even become top2, then... [*]
