According to reputable insiders, the French organization Vitality will expand the team, so there will be six players. Maka, Nivera, Hadji, and Keoz are currently on the company’s shortlist. So, who will be the sixth player? The choice of the player to be signed will depend on communication with other organizations, players’ skills, and results.
The main aim of adding the sixth player is to make things easier for players and prevent emotional instability due to the rapid tempo of work.
Vitality is not the only one
Team Vitality is not the only one going to add a sixth player. Counter-Strike era is extremely demanding, so other organizations decided to do it even earlier.
For example, Cloud9 and FURIA did the same previously, hoping that it will help to improve results without risking people’s health. Besides, Astralis decided to expand the team in May, as the tournament schedule was insanely harsh. Kasper Hvidt (Australis’ director) underlined, that this decision will certainly help players to recharge their batteries.
As we have previously mentioned, there are four candidates for now. So, Hadji (24) is the most experienced one. The team was thinking about adding him even earlier, but Kévin “misutaaa” Rabier was added instead.
Speaking about Maka and Nivera, both surprised people with a great performance this year with Heretics. They were about to enter the top 20 of HLTV’s world rankings.
As for Keoz, he has never participated in tier-one tournaments, but this player is also a promising one.
All we have is time, so we have to wait a little bit to see who will become a sixth member of the team. All potential players are interesting personalities and promising players, which makes the choice more difficult.
