misutaaa leaves Vitality

The French rifler says goodbye after spending over two years with the team.

19-year-old Kévin "⁠misutaaa⁠" Rabier has announced his departure from Vitality via his Twitter account. The news comes amidst reports that the Frenchman is on his way to Falcons.

misutaaa won three trophies during his time with Vitality

His departure comes as no surprise, with reports surfacing this off-season suggesting that Vitality were pursuing ENCE's star rifler Lotan "⁠Spinx⁠" Giladi to replace misutaaa. Most recently, 1pv.fr reported that misutaaa already had a new team lined up, with Falcons interested in signing him alongside Nathan "⁠NBK-⁠" Schmitt.

Report: NBK- and misutaaa to join Falcons

misutaaa joined Vitality back in March of 2020, replacing outgoing IGL Alex "⁠ALEX⁠" McMeekin. Since that time Vitality won three trophies, IEM Beijing-Haidian, BLAST Premier Fall Finals 2020, and IEM Winter 2021, and they also twice briefly held the No. 1 spot in the world rankings in the latter half of 2020.

Since the team was revamped with the addition of the multi-Major winning Danish core of Danny "⁠zonic⁠" Sørensen, Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen and Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif at the start of this year, results have not lived up to the billing. The team has regularly failed to make the playoffs of Big Events, and suffered major low points such as an 0-2 loss to SKADE to crash out of Pinnacle Cup II in March.

A run to the final of BLAST Premier Spring Finals in June was not enough to prevent Vitality seeking Spinx as a replacement for misutaaa.

Yes. We have tons of 19 year olds that never will reach *insert tier*. Can? Maybe. Will? Probably not, if Falcons doesnt play like gods all of a sudden and start rolling teams so other teams want to buy Misutaaa in 1-2 years.
2022-08-09 17:49
It is sad to see so many people who don't understand the competition my gosh. >rookie >first professional experience + it was T1 >giving him bad role >has proved that one he is pure rifle and not a fixe he's great (when kyojin was there)
2022-08-09 21:10

Ik Misutaaa played bad roles dude. But again, People thinking he will be back in T1 in 2-3-4 years or whatever he means with "future", is wrong. Everything depends on Falcons, if they can step up with NBK and Misutaaa or not. If the Falcons project fail then yeah, i doubt hes gonna be back in T1.
2022-08-09 21:13
Wasn't he like a budget shox rocking a -1.0 rating? I can understand the likeability factor but that's just unacceptable as a rifler on a Tier 1 team.

Vitality has been really bad since the roster change but why do people keep bringing up the online defeat against Skade? This kind of result in random online cup happens all the time it’s nothing to write home about. Anyway I hope this roster keeps failing so we can have zywoo in a full french team again soon.

misutaa grew so much on vitality and became a strong player. much stronger than apex is.

lmfao. vitality runs around like chickens with their heads cut off and xywoo and magisk has to clean up the mess. misutaa was getting very consistent and strong, he will be great on another team. vitality needs a better igl and coach, they need to get rid of apex asap.
2022-08-10 02:15
two years of being mediocre tbh, hes at best a good support player like sanji

two years when people laughed at him, for nothing, cursed him and kept writing - misu, just no, he's a very good player and for his age he had a lot of great moments. I with him the best, stay strong misu

Device, glaive, xyp come
2022-08-10 13:34
Finally...misutaa has been Vitality's weak link for so long. They have made 50% of the plan. Vit just need to sign frozen now, and save both sides from irrelevance.

Vitality needs lurker not entryfragger, dupreeh was literally was forced to lurk and magisk tried the same basically clashing
