According to the sources of DeKay from Dexerto, Team Vitality are reported to withdraw from the upcoming Blast Pro event in Moscow. The French team might opt of the tournament primarily due to roster related issues.
According to several sources who seem to have knowledge about the situation surrounding Vitality stated that the choice to opt out of Blast Pro Series Moscow 2019 may be under significant consideration by the organization.
The reason for which being the failure to add a new fifth for their squad just weeks ahead of the event. After the benching of Nathan ‘NBK’ Schmitt due to reported internal problems within the squad, we have had the chance to narrow down his replacement, who as it seems to be Richard ‘Shox’ Papillon, while Fabien ‘kioShiMa’ Fiey was also a serious contender for NBK’s spot.
If they are to pick up either of the French starts, it only leaves them with a couple of days to integrate the new signing into their game plan.
Vitality are a big name in world Counter Strike right now, they backing out of any series is an unfortunate event. The Blast Pro Series Moscow boasts a $250000 prize pool and will be attended by the likes of ENCE, MIBR, Natus Vincere.
