After a disheartening exit from the Starladder Major, Vitality were quick to announce the dropping of Nathan ‘NBK’ Schmitt on Twitter mostly due to internal problems with the squad. Fans are yet uncertain about the team’s attendance to the Blast Pro Series Moscow after this recent change in their roster.
We reported the possibility of Richard ‘Shox’ Papillon joining Vitality after reportedly being dropped from the roster by G2 alongside Lucas ‘Lucky’ Chastang. Initially it seemed both players opening up to the international market to set off to a new project but as it seems Shoxyis set topicked up by the 2nd best-ranked team in the world as reported by +1pv, after the French side swayed away their eyes from Fabien ‘kioShiMa’ Fiey who was dropped from the Cloud9 roster.
Vitality are yet to confirm anything but the situation is still unclear as Kio is a free agent as of now but Shox is still bounded by a contract by G2, which means his arrival would involve a financial gain for G2 Esports. Financial benefit for G2 might be necessary as they are targeting two of CR4ZY’s star players in Nemanja ‘huNter’ Kovac and Nemanja ‘nexa’ Isakovic.
NBK, on the other hand, has been quick to put himself open to offers and is certainly looking for a new home, no reports on his likely destination as of yet.
With Kio Lucky and NBK without a team, we might be looking at the beginning of a new french project.
