In a controversial move, Team Vitality has decided to drop three of the major players in their Rainbow Six Siege roster.
After an unsuccessful experiment with their R6 ‘Superteam’, Team Vitality has opted to replace “Fabian” Hällsten, Daniel “Goga” Mazorra Romero, and Lucas “Hungry” Reich with three new french signings.
Replacing these three players will be the former Tempra players of Nicolas “P4” Rimbaud and Axel “Shiinka” Freisberg, and Medhi “Kaktus” Marty from the former Challenger League squad of PENTA.
Both Fabian and Goga has been shifted to the inactive roster, while Hungry has been released from the team.
“The R6 “superteam” we tried to create didn’t work. Amongst others, the unfortunate COVID situation prevented our roster from being able to work as close as we hoped, especially in our bootcamp facilities in Paris. That meant we had to make changes for the 2021 season.” said Team Vitality.
Fabian, one of the best players in the Siege community, announced in a Twitlonger post that he will most likely be retiring after his contract with Vitality is terminated. Fabian still wants to compete again; however, the chances of any team buying him out is minimal as of now.
On the other hand, Goga announced that he doesn’t have any long-term plans for the future.
“I’m happy now,stress-free and with more free time to do stuff I like. I don’t know myself if this will be a goodbye forever from competitive, or if I will return at some point(Which IGoga
This news has come out as a disappointment for many Siege fans around the world. Two of the players who once dominated the R6 scene with the Penta/G2 roster did deserve a better send-off than this.
Team Vitality R6 roster:
- Bastien “BiBoo” Dulac
- Valentin “risze” Liradelfo
- Nicolas “P4” Rimbaud
- Axel “Shiinka” Freisberg
- Medhi “Kaktus” Marty
- Laurie “Lyloun” Lagier (Head Coach)
- Louis “Helbee” Bureau (Assistant Coach)
Hopefully, Team Vitality will be able to handle this situation professionally as they move forward. The new roster will be in action against BDS Esports on the first playday of the EUL 2021 season tomorrow.
