The Starladder Berlin CSGO 2019 Major hasn’t even ended but the teams have initiated their roster changes, taking steps towards having an even more competitive lineup for the coming season.
CSGO organization Vitality is one of the first major organizations to confirm their change. The French-majority stack have decided to bench NBK- in the aftermath of their Quarter-Final exit from the Berlin Major. NBK- had a disappointing Major by his standards, averaging a rating of 0.84 over the 9 maps Vitality played in Berlin.
The announcement hints at a move from two IGLs to having ALEX as the sole IGL going forward, perhaps inferring a notion that there might have been differences in philosophy between the two IGLs.
It is unclear as to who Vitality will target to bring in as a replacement for the French stalwart. NBK- remains in contract with Vitality and will drop to the bench as the organization and the player decide on what is the optimum resolution to the situation at hand.
With NBK- dropping to the bench, Vitality are down to just four players in their active lineup.
