Ten days ago, Vitality announced the departure of their coach Philippe “faculty” Rodier who joined the original project at an early stage. faculty is known to be a former 1.6 player and a book author about football and esport. The reason of his exit is still unknown.
Without faculty, Vitality won the DreamHack Open Atlanta 2018 last weekend and showed a good level in their BO3 games. A promising victory where the biggest prospect of the French scene, Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut convincingly won the MVP award of the tournament.
Right before playing the last online open qualifier to stay in the run for the Minor (and ultimately the Major) which will take place this weekend, Vitality has decided to add a new coach.
According to our information, current shoutcaster and former Source/GO player and coach Rémy “XTQZZZ” Quoniam should join Vitality as the new team coach. His casting partner at ESL France, Alexandre “Zuper” Gillet should join him and take on the role of team manager in the organization.
Vitality will then be:
Nathan “NBK” Schmitt
Dan “apEX” Madesclaire
Vincent “Happy” Cervoni
Cedric “RpK” Guipouy
Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut
Rémy “XTQZZZ” Quoniam (coach)
Alexandre “Zuper” Gillet (manager)
