apEX becomes Vitality captain

Vitality member Dan "⁠apEX⁠" Madesclaire has confirmed that he has taken on the in-game leader mantle following Alex "⁠ALEX⁠" McMeekin's departure.

In a Twitlonger post titled 'The past and the future', the French player revealed that he had been thinking about becoming an IGL for some time and that he hadn't taken on the challenge due to his "issue with emotions" - something he has been working on with the organisation's mental coach.

The 27-year-old hopes the transition will allow him to find his place again after a "terrible" six months in which he felt he was underperforming (0.96 LAN rating). He will take over the role from ALEX, who officially stepped down from Vitality on Wednesday after concluding that his efforts to lighten the team's traveling schedule would be fruitless.

apEX hopes to find his place again, now as an IGL

apEX admitted that "everything was falling apart" towards the end of ALEX's tenure with the team after the British tactician had "lost some motivation to continue playing at the highest level". He thanked his former teammate for his contribution - which includes guiding Vitality to two Big Event titles - and expressed his happiness that the two players had the chance to cross paths.

"Now we have to rebuild everything in the team, it's going to be a long road for us to come back to the level we were at in 2019," apEX added.

"But I know all the players I'm playing with, and we are all motivated to give everything to come back to the very top."

apEX also commented on the signing of 17-year-old Kévin "⁠misutaaa⁠" Rabier, who will finally get his first taste of top-level Counter-Strike after rising through the ranks in France. The new Vitality in-game leader praised his new teammate and stressed that he will play to his preferred style.

"Having new blood is something great for the French scene, and I think misutaaa deserves his spot," apEX wrote.

"We are going to try to give him the best conditions to perform and we will not use him the wrong way as we did in the past with a few other players."

Vitality will return to action on March 16 in ESL Pro League Season 11. The French team have been placed in Group A, with their first match in the round-robin stage pitting them against GODSENT.

Shox is not a good igl anymore, he needs to focus on his own game before focusing on a team's game, as much as I love shoxie I really don't think he can IGL effectively, RPK is showing good form but he is an aimer and a great teammate, not a leader it's personality would never fit that role, Apex is actually the best choice because he already led Vitaly on some rounds with Alex, and he have a lot of experience not like zywoo or mitusaa, so he is actually the best choice they have right now, or they should have recruited a new IGL but this would have been a big hit since all the chemistry of the team would have been shattered.

Yes he stopped, maybe he goes for the first kill sometimes if he has good spawn, but usually never tries to open rounds, never goes in first during executes. ALEX and ZywOo both have more than 20% attempts for opening kills, apEX has 18%. hltv.org/stats/players/openingkills?star..

Still lower than 3 vitality players, and that's just opening kills which you gain by first contact with enemy, not actually entrying a site. ALEX and ZywOo were the only entries in Vitality. If you still want to confirm for yourself, pick apEX in fantasy and give him entry fragger role.

There is lots of factors that decide who is getting how many entry frag situations. Sometimes it's spawn based. You dont always have good spawn for entry fragging in a fast-paced round. For example, in dust 2 if alex have a long spawn, he is going to try to entry long fast, he wont call apex to entry if apex has bad spawn. Secondly it also depends on strats. If they are running a slow round, the team will try to find a pick together. In this case whoever has contact with the enemy first will have a chance to entry frag. You cant just look at stats and say apex isnt an entry fragger. Stats will make it look like karrigan was entrying more than rain in faze but we all know rain was their main entry.

2020-03-07 03:54
strat wise it was always ALEX, spawn wise it would only make sense if they are rushing, cuz for example if if apEX has good spawn for long he can kill a CT at long, play passive and then completely target B bombsite, wherein it doesn't make sense if he is entrying. If he would kill the CT guy and further apply pressure and kill few more players to open up the A site, it makes more sense that he played entry. If you look at their demos, you can clearly see, apEX is their utility guy and never goes in first during executes. He lurks on maps like overpass and nuke. He is more like an aggressive lurker/playmaker

This is the best choice atm. Shox would be bad for the team, and Apex could be a good IGL with all his backgroud. Aniway, Alex's retirement sucks for the team fack.

Gl apex and Vitality Best choice possible atm
2020-03-05 23:14
Will see, I think everyone just seeing apex a really bad igl, but if he plays the igl role and the entry role at the same time could be okay. What he really needs to call is just do simple tactics, do not over think themselves like shox did in G2, then Vitality could be better than 2019. Also the new addition could change the roles in the team, what if they put shox in other roles like second entry, I dont think he is bad, he just doesnt know what to do and being so confused in many situation with that lurker role, he still has that sick aim.

Not sure about this decision, Apex never strikes as IGL-quality. Not a particularly bright player. Too emotional. Often doing weird stuff that makes no sense. On the other hands, they probably don't want to burden shox with IGL responsibility again which may affect his personal performance. Maybe Apex calls with shox helping out on the mid-round. That may work. Will see.
2020-03-06 01:05
let one of the worst tier1 decision makers take a role where you have to be an outstanding decision maker. yeah this is gonna be ence v2, for french scenes sake i sincerely hope apex proves me wrong. otherwise zywoo go international please, your talent could be used better

Not like theres many options when the major cycle starts in days and your IGL randomly leaves. No one expected shox to be this poor either. Mediocre? Okay but actually putting up bottom 10 stats in tournaments was unforeseen. Plus he has elements you dont have to teach and has experience with some of these players. Also the French scene is not very deep. Tell me who they should have gotten instead? Many other things isnt a thing, can you be specific?
2020-03-06 03:55

The constant shuffle of players affect the mental stability and status of the team and after shox joined vitality everyone including me thought that vitality will reach a new high but that was not the case. They kept going out in groups and shox is still underperforming and a man with that experience, it's not a good thing for the team which caused more pressure on the teammates as an experienced player was struggling a lot with back to back poor performances and no team can function if they depend only on 1 person. The french scene surely have some underdogs but not all of them get a chance to play at pro or semi-pro level. Vitality removed happy very early and brought in alex, then removed nbk to bring shox and then alex left all of a sudden so yea vitality did a few oopsies
2020-03-06 05:15
2 replies
Happy wasnt bringing anything to the team he was useless. He was removed very early on for that reason. How is kicking a weak player an oopsie? They won tournaments and made finals with shox. So I dont see how that's a mistake. Alex just lost his drive and the team degraded. There wasnt really a constant shuffle. They did 1 change after the major cycle which isnt uncommon and it was petty much forced by NBKs actions. Vitality dont only depend on 1 person. They depend on shox and apex a bunch but they consistently fail.
2020-03-06 06:07
1 reply
First of all they started the team with nbk being the igl. Happy should've been the igl and he was never known for his fragging abilities plus he had experience of being an igl. It was an oopsie. Consistently losing in finals with shox is not something to be proud of and you know that too. Team was made around nbk but they lost faith in him and wanted to give full power to alex which did happen and alex too got tired of constant pressure and travel so now he has benched himself. Vitality only depends on zywoo and if apex or shox or rpk plays in 2 out of 10 games then it looks fine else all the time zywoo is carrying the team. I'm not against vitality but the amount of experienced players they have, the team should be well feared and at a better ranking and the veterans should start showing their potential or else they'll be benched soon
2020-03-06 06:34
Hope to just see an increase individually from Apex and Shox. That would honestly solve a lot. VforVictory

Very good move, Apex isnt unfamiliar with the IGL role. He has helped exe and Happy with the role for years before this, I think he might be alot better then people think. He did win majors while playing 2nd IGL and im sure this is a good step into elevating his skills and find love for the game again.
