ALEX set to leave Vitality - Report
The British tactician has shockingly decided to step down from the team due to personal reasons after growing weary of the constant traveling, with Vitality currently preparing for a busy period that could see the squad attend six events only in the next four months.
The announcement comes at a difficult time for Vitality, who occupy the ninth place in the rankings - their lowest since May 2019 - after a rough start to the year. The French team will have to play the BLAST Premier Showdown after finishing third in their group in London, and placed 9th-12th at last week's IEM Katowice.
ALEX joined Vitality in December 2018 to replace Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer in what was the first roster change after the French organisation's entrance into CS:GO. He led the team to a second place in the rankings after an impressive run that included an ECS title and a runner-up finish at ESL One Cologne, with the squad adding one more trophy to their collection before the end of the year from EPICENTER.
Vitality are currently assessing their options ahead of ESL Pro League Season 11, which starts in two weeks, and the ESL One Rio Major, where the Frenchmen have a guaranteed spot in the New Legends Stage following their playoff run at the StarLadder Major. According to 1pv.fr, the team have set their sights on Ali "hAdji" Haïnouss, who is currently plying his trade for LDLC.
