Vitality move Nivera to inactive
French Vitality gave up the idea to use a sixth player, the role played by Nabil "Nivera" Benrlitom. This was announced on the official page of the organization on Twitter.
The reason for this decision are the restrictions in the series of qualifying tournaments for the next major, which will be held this fall. Valve officially announced that it would penalize any substitutions in the announced five-man roster.
At the same time, Vitality expressed confidence that expanded lineups are the future of the CS:GO competitive scene and is ready to return to using a sixth player in tournaments if restrictions are withdrawn.
The French team's next official matches will take place during ESL Pro League Season 13. His opponents in Group B will be FaZe, G2, mousesports, ENCE, and NiP.
Current Vitality lineup:
- Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut
- Cedric "RpK" Guipouy
- Richard "shox" Papillon
- Kevin "Misutaaa" Rabier
- Dan "apEX" Madesclaire
- Remy "XTQZZZZ" Quoniam (Coach)
- Nabil "Nivera" Benrlitom (inactive)
