XTQZZZ: "Even if we won the Major, we needed to change; replacing NBK- was my decision"

Vitality's coach Rémy "⁠XTQZZZ⁠" Quoniam commented on the removal of Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt, the decision to bring in Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon, and the long term vision for the team in a podcast with 1pv.cs

The French tactician started off by explaining that NBK- asked to share the lead with Alex "⁠ALEX⁠" McMeekin after Katowice, where Vitality's "T-sides were terrible". XTQZZZ explains further:

"ALEX started leading as T & Nathan as CT. NBK was still team captain. At the time we all said 'ok, no ego problems, we're adults'. But then it happened anyway. Maybe the problems started there"

A change was coming for some time, but XTQZZZ made the call to remove NBK- after a fallout during the Major

XTQZZZ stressed that nothing was decided before the Major, but that after ECS Season 7 Finals he became aware that the team surely wasn't going to stick together long-term:

"All I can say is that after ECS, almost all of my energy was to stabilize the group. More outside than inside the game. Linking humans together. But after ECS, I knew that we couldn't stay a year like that. Impossible."

Vitality's coach explained that "changes aren't bad", referring to the improvements of NRG, Liquid, and Astralis after their last roster changes, and touched on the human aspect and the life on the road, which, in his opinion, contributes to instability in teams: "I'm sure most teams would stay stable if there was only six or seven events a year".

However, things that took place during the Major made the change inevitable:

"Things happened at the Major, even if we had won, we needed to change, it was decided. About [replacing] Nathan, it was my decision. Something happened at the Major and ALL of the players didn't want to play with Nathan anymore, not one or two, all of them."

"They didn't tell me to change, I had already decided."

"To say that there are only problems with Nathan is false. There are problems with everyone. ALEX wasn't easy either. Honestly, we have to say it, in the end, it was either ALEX or Nathan."

"In relation to what happened, behaviors, what Vitality wants, and what I want, kicking Nathan was the right thing to do. I made the decision during the Major."

From XTQZZZ's point of view, issues with NBK- were tied to the balance of powers within the team. At the start, Vitality "gave NBK- the keys" and the player "sees it 'old school': staff doesn't decide, players do", which clashed with XTQZZZ role.

"I might be dumb to say this but players are here... to play. They don't have to have the power."

"There are so many things to handle. I like sports a lot and some players give their opinion, but no player decides."

"If players had the power [in Vitality], the team would have changed many times."

Touching on the rumors that Dan "⁠apEX⁠" Madesclaire decided to remove NBK-, Vitality's coach stated that apEX was the player that "tried to make it work the most", while also defending Cédric "⁠RpK⁠" Guipouy's position on the team: "no one can say that he's not doing the job".

XTQZZZ and NBK- didn't have matching visions on how a team should be run

The conversation then moved on to the addition of shox. The coach described that they needed someone who is mostly useful on the T side as a lurker, while the CT sides would be changed up no matter the player they pick up.

"Why not young players? Because honestly, shox was perfect for what I wanted."

"You're losing NBK. You need a name, someone with experience. I term of game, vision, etc. And Richard and kioShiMa at first were perfect for that. Better than any young player."

Answering to criticism about shox, regarding his in-game leadership and motivation, XTQZZZ added:

"shox will never be the leader, he will never be the captain. That's what I told him. And it's now 2 years that he doesn't want to lead anymore. He didn't impose anything. I asked him what he wanted. He wants some responsibilities, for example, in mid-rounds. Perfect for us."

"About motivation, there are ways for him to keep it, for example, in contracts and other things. He knows. Plus, HE came to us, it's also another point people don't know."

Lastly, the Frenchmen revealed Vitality's long-term vision, and that is to move to an international team due to the limitations of the French scene.

"This is the last French-speaking team at Vitality. They know it. I have no problem telling everyone, that's Vitality's vision."

"The game is getting older, the French scene too. It does not completely renew itself. Not many young people are coming up. We didn't give them enough confidence in the past either. We buried players who had potential."

"Other games are fully international but it's not like that in CS yet. I'm a little bit of a disagreer right now. Look at the top 10, there are one or two international teams max. Only FaZe was winning things at some point. mouz never really won anything."

"I don't think it's international or nothing in the future. I think it works for some countries, it won't be the same for everyone.

"That will be our trajectory. It's not a pressure for the player, but you also have to look at the truth, look what's on the table [in the French scene]."

The podcast was conducted in French and featured XTQZZZ, 1pv.fr's neL, and commentator Arthur "⁠pm⁠" Guillermet. Highlights translated to English as well as links to the podcast are available on 1pv.fr.

2019-09-29 18:01
The problem was not that he was toxic, he just wanted to be the captain no matter what and wanted to decide for everything. He didn't like the fact that the coach has more power regarding the lineup and who's doing what. In fact, I really like this approach of giving the coach more voice because if he is good he can clearly see what the team really needs. Look at zonic, it's the perfect example and they respect him for that. NBK wanted to be THE man and his ego burried him. That's why he ended up being cut, because he probably created tensions just for that matter and did not contribute at all in terms of in game leading (XTQZZZ said he didnt like his way of leading on ct side and his t-side lead was really terrible).

the problem was the how to play inside the game alex and nbk are not ok, so the coach have decide to take the captain post himself. at the end they decide to take alex in single IGL and that start the fight inside with nbk. not giving one info for some major matchs.

Now reflect this interview with how ENCE handled removing aleksib - Vitality are willing to throw NBK completely under the bus, saying he's a toxic cunt and no one wants to play with him. ENCE said "we wanted a change, we felt stagnant, we're still friends" - ofc it's bs but it's PR bs.
2019-09-29 16:37
11 replies
+1 Exactly my thoughts. We don't even know the real reason Aleksib was kicked yet, the explanation they gave were so fake it can be. Either that or the organisation has zero clue whatsoever, to the point you don't believe a pro organisation can be that much out of touch so you think it's much more likely some pr/tactical stunt behind it that they avoid telling the truth.

It looks like ENCE were trying their hardest to not scare away potential buyers by hinting at any personal problems with aleksib. They ended looking stupid, but I guess they were willing to take that hit instead of saying "the players didn't want to play with aleksib" - whether or not it was true. That "good guy move" brought upon them an unprecedented amount of hate from idiot children.

in the podcast it's more detailed and it's not the fault of nbk alone, alex and others players have some beef with the direction to take inside the game and after start a beef and players decide to remove nbk because something happened and they don't really want to say it but i think it's because all the major nbk don't communicate at all and don't follow the new lead of alex with the new system they want try so at the end nbk make the shit but he maybe not start it

Sure I don't have to use proper english with hltv users now do I ? Unless you want to hold one with me and whether Im' bilingual or not will be quite obvious. I'm sure this is quite self-explanatory but the fact that I'm using pretend english doesn't necessarily mean that I can't use proper RP english. If you read UK comments, their english isn't proper either, you act almighty and all but if you knew more about the english culture you'd be aware that everything involving texting doesn't require proper formal forms and I can add sentences ponctuated by commas without breaking the sentences as you stated. I wouldn't have used pretend english for cambridge exams that I've passed years ago. And your comment coming from a russian user is truly a new and refreshing experience I must say.

I know Vitality well I've been following everything about them for a year now and in the 1 hour 47 minutes long podcast they talk about everything you need to know and not this botched-translated "highlights" lmao. All the players were involved, and both NBK and Alex had different visions on the in-game leading. The captain status was removed by the coach XTQZZZ after ECS, there was no captain in that team since ECS. Their vision or philosophy of the game was different. The coach just saw that he had to cut one of the two heads either Alex or NBK. In the end, the coach's vision of the game was closer to Alex's and NBK was cut. NBK wasn't happy either in that roaster. Overall it's good for both NBK and Vitality, especially if NBK can bounce back elsewhere like 100T.

I dont know where people like you come from, I don't know why you care so much about nationality, you should care about who can do the job best and I'm not sure if you noticed but te French scene is pretty tapped on talent at this point. International teams can have just as much success at national teams just requires 5 players that are talented and committed to getting better as a squad. You would never care if your wide receiver was from Europe if he could catch the ball and learn routes and plays well so why should it be any different in CSGO?

YOU DIDN'T READ THE INTERVIEW. It's NBK that decided that he wanted to step down from leading on the T side and THAT Alex should lead on the T side instead. XTQZZZ even removed the captain status completely...no one was the captain for months in that team. You're french and you can't even listen to a 1 hour 47 minutes long podcast you're a disgrace.
2019-09-29 17:28
Yeah you seem quite uninformed. NBK and Alex agreed to lead opposite sides NBK on CT. And besides the team improved greatly when Alex took over t sides. Bringing alex lead to the most successful period a french team has had in years I dont know why you're being so negative about it. Probably just an NBK salty fan

The article clearly states that no one wanted to work with NBK after the major. And that NBKs problems were personal issues moreso then ingame he even says "All I can say is that after ECS, almost all of my energy was to stabilize the group. More outside than inside the game. Linking humans together. " Stop trying to change the narrative when its right there in front of you. The team disagreed with NBK in and out of the game and moving forward they couldnt see a way it would work, that's it, that's all there is to it. Yes alex had problems but his didnt lead to the entire team wanting to remove him.

I'm not building any narrative, you're not french and you don't get to hear from them everyday in french like we do. I heard the podcast well before this hltv article was made and this is a botched translation I'm afraid. If you're only talking after reading this article from hltv than I have nothing to discuss with you, this article doesn't even talk about 1/100th of the podcast ( As I said it's a 1 hour 47 min podcast on 1PV) If you don't speak french or you're lazy to read the full interview on the website, it's your fault not mine. The team didn't want to play with NBK because of how things turned out with their CT sides. The players said nothing about removing NBK, XTQZZZ knew he was going to cut him and made the decision himself.

Also don't think his leadership decisions had anything to do with confidence that was something that was decided very early on in the roster. I think NBK knew alex was a better t side lead and let him do it but honestly he should have just stepped down fully and focused individually.

True, shox out of form is a better player than nbk anyway + they sorted out the igl issue. They are gonna improve But if shox is in form, the team is the best in the world no doubt. shox and zywoo both on form would be the most skilled duo so far in csgo history
2019-09-29 18:08
4 replies
I don't think Shox has star potential anymore. As said in more details in the podcast, Shox will be very useful mid-rounds because he can read the game well which Vitality lacked. Also Shox becoming old has transition into more of an anchor role (on the CT side obviously) and as a T side he'll be a real lurker which Apex was only doing partially because he's not a true lurker nor a true entry. Ofc he has great aim and if he can focus on it I'm sure he'll put good numbers while being impactful mid-rounds. I wouldn't say he's a better than NBK in all cases but in Vitality's case Shox would be probably a better fit than NBK was ( not even considering the issues within the lineup).
2019-09-29 18:53
3 replies
No reason for him not to have. Right now i dont think he puts as much hours in due to being old, having a wife and a chlid, but if he knows its maybe his last chance for throphies, if he put the extra extra hours into individual work i dont see a reason why he wouldnt be able to repeak individually. Right now he is just a role player like everyone on the team but Zywoo, but if he shows the star level alex will transition him into a star next to zywoo very fast, so its not out of options for shox to be a star player again
2019-09-29 19:10
2 replies
The project is now built around Zywoo, Shox won't be a star in that team maybe the 2nd best player but not as a star frankly as a role player. They want this because they're a tactical team, it's not about being good enough to be a star which I'm sure in another team he could, it's just that Shox will be in a specific system because from Astralis/Liquid that tactics is better than individuals which Liquid greatly relied on, more so than Astralis. Also Shox not being forced to deliver can also free him as a player and let him be impactful when he wants to and this freedom is something he didn't have in G2, overall it's great for everybody, for Shox, for Vitality and even for his creator NBK that will join 100T soon (NBK wasn't happy in this lineup I'm afraid despite being #2 in the world).
2019-09-29 19:21
1 reply
The narrative that shox didnt have freedom in G2 is quite odd. Not only was a lot of the calling centered around his lurks and creating space for him to backstab but he also set himself up a lot to trade off of Lucky and Jackz when grouped.
2019-09-30 08:12
he will focus on rifling now, and mid round calls He will perform well

NBK has always been cocky with too much ego :) Small upgrade but seriously, it's a crime that K1O isn't in a top french team.

If you read the full interview it's clearly not the case, NBK was professional till the end; just there were tensions between all the players and their vision/philosophy of the game were different.

he wasn't their best player, Zywoo was, Alex was the IGL on the T side, Apex the lurker and rpk the anchor. He was a great player but it led to too much tensions.

but rpk is real trash. When they kicked happy RPK and happy had at this time the exact same rating. but Happy has a lot more potential skill (can even play awp) than RPK. they decided to stay with the worst french player ever. Now they kick the topfragger beside zywoo. Apex ingame skill is also going down and a shox already showed in G2 he can't carry a shit.

You clearly don't know him then... he is a really balanced and composed guy and he's an hardworker on top of that. They included nothing relevant in this article, read the full interview or listen to the podcast before giving false statements; he pretty much doesn't see his wife and his young child in order to make the team work. Every player on the team has huge respect for him and he did put all nighters in the past before each important game and Alex said that he did it all pretty much...

that was happy and he was backstabbed by literally every french player. Toxic is toxic you can't change that. French CSGO Teams never learned that they have to push egos beside when they want real success. In Germany, we can at least say we have only Tabsen for such a high level so we can't do it better but French could.

"ALEX started leading as T & Nathan as CT. NBK was still team captain. At the time we all said 'ok, no ego problems, we're adults'. But then it happened anyway. Maybe the problems started there" "To say that there are only problems with Nathan is false. There are problems with everyone. ALEX wasn't easy either. Honestly, we have to say it, in the end, it was either ALEX or Nathan."

look, i listened the all itw, in french, which is my language, and he clearly said that no one wanted to play with Nathan anymore. No one had a problem with Alex. So yes, there were problems between NbK and Alex since the double lead and Alex taking more and more importance into the team, but Nbk somehom benched himself by making everyone angry in the team ... French streamer Malek said today on stream that Nbk did not communicate during an entire game during the major, because he was mad, and that's what made Xtqzz choose to bench him... idk if true but it could ...

For thoses who might not knowing xtQzz he's a very smart person. He does not care about players drama all he wants is his team working, and he'll take any decision needed for it to success. I like nbk, but if xtQzz took the decision to bench him, i entirely trust him. I listened the complete podcast (more than 1h30) and it's been a long time i had not heard someone from CSGO scene have so smart talks.

Defending RPK lol what a human you have to be to defend such a bad player. OMEGALUL. i don't care about NBK he is backstabber (he made an arrogant tweet to happy after he backstabbed him) but French scene is toxic as hell. There is drama always. This will not be the last kick in the next 6 month mark my words.

The most important thing to take out of this interview is the Shox part. He won't be leading or captaining in Vitality ever, that alone makes the signing great. Great fragger.

it's refeshign to see an actual honest adn transparetn declarations from Coach/org/staff in CSGO, also we might dont know the full picture from inside the team but this dude (im a newfag, idk about him in 1...6) seems pretty competent and also aligned with what vitality (as org) wants to reach in the long term, sadly it ended up with the cut of NBK, but on the other side it solidifies the small but still there UK scene (ALEX in this case)

"Other games are fully international but it's not like that in CS yet" That's because the other games are behind, they're inefficient, they are further from tactical supremacy. I hate this vision for the game and sincerely hope this coach and Vitality are proven wrong. What's more, the young French scene has been all but abandoned by mid-tier teams, and to ignore it further is just exacerbating problems.

You didn't read the fucking interview did you? I've heard the podcast and you can understand that a team is a lot more complex than that and that's not "french related" you dumb fuck. The podcast is 1.47 hour long

Not at all, it's his decision because it's not up to the players to decide. But the whole team did not want to play with NbK anymore, it was either Alex or NbK. In France players have always had the rights to kick a player or two. And we both know where that led us ^^
