Bubzkji suggests 4 options for Vitality to replace misutaaa if Spinx transfer fails
Esports athlete Lucas "Bubzkji" Andresen, who has been working as an analyst for Danish television since the beginning of 2022, has taken to Twitter to name four candidates to replace Kévin "misutaaa" Rabier in Vitality. He clarified that these are the options in case the French club fails to sign ENCE's Lotan "Spinx" Giladi.
According to Bubzkji, in the Spinx deal comes through, some Vitality players will have to change their positions, while the riflers he suggested almost completely replicate misutaaa's roles on various maps.
1. Laurențiu "lauNX" Țârlea (Sprout, 18 years old, rating for the past 6 months – 1.13). Plays a lot of the same roles, is mainly a rifler, but can also hybrid, which could be useful for Vitality. His age makes him interesting, while he's still doing well on T2. He lacks experience, and hasn't shown great level on LAN yet.
2. Dion "FASHR" Derksen (ECSTATIC, 26 years old, 1.19). Roles are good. His individual lvl is strong, doesn't play AWP. he has dominated the Tier 2-3 scene. His age is a factor, since Vitality avg age would be high with the addition of FASHR + Not a lot of LAN experience for his age.
3. Robert "Patsi" Isyanov (Team Spirit, 18 years old, 1.11). This is probably a hard deal, he's most likely gonna be very expensive. Roles are good, is defentiliely the most proven player of these. Has T1 experience, and is also a hybrid. His English is fine, but is it good enough for Vitality?
4. Victor "Staehr" Ster (Sprout, 18 years old, 1.08). A great player, who's surprisingly strong on LAN compared to his little experience. Isn’t as flashy as the others, but is a consistent player who could potentially grow into a real star in the future.
Vitality started looking for a replacement for misutaaa after an unsuccessful first half of the current year, where the team's best achievement was a runner-up finish at BLAST Premier Spring Final 2022. The French organization needs to decide on a newcomer in the near future since BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022 kicks off as early as in 2.5 weeks.
