Vitality bid farewell to shox

The 29-year-old's time on the team comes to an end after over two years.

Vitality have announced the departure of Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon from their roster, bringing an end to his lengthy tenure as a part of the team during which he won a handful of notable events, including EPICENTER 2019, IEM Beijing 2020 Europe, BLAST Premier Fall 2020, and IEM Winter 2021.

The news comes as little surprise as Vitality were first reported to be parting ways with shox, Jayson "⁠Kyojin⁠" Nguyen Van, and Rémy "⁠XTQZZZ⁠" Quoniam in early November as they overhaul their roster heading into 2022, going the international route with the additions of Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen, Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif, and Danny "⁠zonic⁠" Sørensen.

shox and Vitality have parted ways after over 27 months together

Despite being a dead roster for their final three events of the year, Vitality had a resurgent performance, finishing as the runner-ups to Natus Vincere at the BLAST Premier Fall Final, winning IEM Winter, and placing third at the BLAST World Final.

Heading into 2022, shox has been linked with a move to Liquid, where he should join the two remaining players, Jonathan "⁠EliGE⁠" Jablonowski and Keith "⁠NAF⁠" Markovic, as well as the reported additions of Josh "⁠oSee⁠" Ohm and Nick "⁠nitr0⁠" Cannella.

With Liquid announcing that Michael "⁠Grim⁠" Wince, Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo, and Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip are no longer on their starting lineup as of Tuesday and shox's departure from Vitality now being formalized, further announcements can be expected to follow in the near future.

lets not forget, it took simple 9 years to win one major even though hes been on several star studded teams. meanwhile everyone else who has a major achieved it in quarter of the time it took simple. Also simple won a major while every other team is disbanding. s1mple wont win the major in 2022 and he will go to valorant(or probably cod sense thats all hes plays now).

You are lying, in literally every statement. > CSGO has barely existed for 9 years. s1mple's 1st professional team was in October 2014. It's been 7 years. He was Tier1 since 2016, which is 5-6 years. For 2 years, it was online with no majors. So, it took him 4 years of playing Tier1 LAN CSGO, to win a major. Not 9. > s1mple won his 1st major in his 10th attempt - same as device. > Throughout history, post-major reshuffles have happened. 90% of current roster changes were announced AFTER the major, just like every major. The major itself had no dead teams. BLAST Fall/World Finals had dead teams, not the major. 2/8 for the effort.

It's been said even those teams don't want him, and can you blame them? He's had .8 rating consistently over the year.
2021-12-22 19:52
3 replies
Yeah cos he's had not only next to no tier 1 experience, but he hadn't even played many professional games at all. The fact that he's even got a .8 rating at all is decent considering he spent most of that time playing against top 10 teams, after literally having 9 recorded games on hltv when he joined vitality, with most of those games being open qualifiers when he was playing in a mix team. I know you don't have to have official matches in order to be good but still, 9 matches on hltv to tier 1 tournaments is never gonna end well

Not if he reinvents himself and his own gameplay. He has enough experience to do that now. If you look at players like kioshima or STYKO, these are the players who were stuck in the bitch roles, but they changed their gameplay and became much better players and got signed by an org. Kio got screwed over a bunch of times, but that's another story. This is what separates legends and FaceIt queue. If Kyojin gives up, he belongs to the FaceIt queue. If he takes this "opportunity" as a time to grind, he might become a legend one day.

Don't know, to be honest, I'm pretty sure Team Liquid got Bootcamp in the Netherlands and there are rumors and report that he will be joining Team Liquid in 2022.

Someone from the management said they will stay in EU for the majority of 2022 until the covid restrictions are lifted up. As the majority of the team are practicing from EU, it makes sense too.

"The 29-year-old's time on the team comes to an end after over two years." why do they have to put his age on the header... :D like seriously just put his name or nickname, not age

i mean using age and clearly its used here to make him look old, is just not a good way to start. if we speak about prodigies for example m0nesy, we could start with a 16y old prodigy, and it would look cool, but in this case its bad

This is something from the English language that I will NEVER understand. They always put emphasis on age. In Portuguese we don't mention the age of the people on articles like that.

It's weird to see how a team who is closest in beating NaVi have to make such massive change, you'd think -kyojin +someone slightly better had been enough to make serious NaVi contender. But I suppose it's a mental game and sometimes you just need to freshen up the lineup to stay fresh & focused mentality-wise in the game too. They've been together for quite a while now.

But some just try harder than others imho. Looking at Vitality with their last 3 month of performance and on the other hand for example mouz, FaZe, BiG and other top20 teams they in comparison do fcking nothing to get to #1.
2021-12-23 12:52
1 reply
Vitality just lucky enough to have an opportunity to build a team around superstar and a young rising star. They already have a big part of no.1 caliber team which others don't have. I mean, Faze have it to some extend, but it seems they just don't know how to build a good team.

there is NO way he joins liquid, that is such a bad pickup for liquid. Do they expect him to somehow go back 7 years and become a good player? He's been below average for so long now, I'd argue he's on the same level of being washed up as olof is.

You are dumb af I dont give a shit about how much money they earned From viewer's POV snax since he left VP was only struggling. Picked up by mouz to play as a support when he played whole career as a lurker (then went back to VP). Very smart mouz. Then he left VP completly and got stuck in Polish shithole for 2 years. Recently he took a break from competetive CS, because he doesnt feel strong mentally as he was in the past. Also he got married recently. I want to see snax in tier 2/3 team, because he is still insane player as lurker, but its fully his choice and Im worried he is gonna retire soon.
