Vitality to overhaul roster with Astralis trio for 2022 - Report
According to a report by 1pv.fr, Vitality will undergo an overhaul, bringing in Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen, Emil "Magisk" Reif, and Danny "zonic" Sørensen once their contracts with the Danish organization expire at the beginning of 2022.
The report comes on the day following the French squad's elimination in the quarter-finals of PGL Major Stockholm at the hands of tournament favorites Natus Vincere, ending an overall shaky showing from Vitality in Stockholm, where they had to come back from a 0-2 start in the Legends stage to qualify for the playoffs.
Should the move come to fruition, it will mark an end to shox's two-year tenure with the French organization, whom he helped win EPICENTER 2019, IEM Beijing-Haidian 2020, and BLAST Premier Fall 2020 Finals and finish runners-up at several other tournaments.
Kyojin joined the team in April to replace the now retired Cédric "RpK" Guipouy amid a difficult period for the team, from which they have only recently begun to recover with promising runs following the end of the player break, most notably placing second at ESL Pro League Season 14.
dupreeh, Magisk, and zonic were recently announced to be on the way out of Astralis, with the Danish side signing Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke, Benjamin "blameF" Bremer, and Alexander "ave" Holdt in an overhaul of their own.
Vitality's reported roster for 2022 looks as follows:
