Official: Vitality sign Spinx
Vitality and ENCE have announced via their official websites that they had reached an agreement on the transfer of Lotan "Spinx" Giladi, thereby confirming the information from various reports. The amount of the deal was not disclosed.
Spinx has donned the ENCE jersey since early 2021. During this time, the European team's best results fell on the beginning of the current year, after making the finals of ESL Pro League Season 15 and IEM Dallas 2022, as well as finishing in 3-4th place at PGL Major Antwerp 2022, which saw it temporarily rise to the second spot in HLTV.org's rankings.
In the Vitality camp, the Israeli took the place of Kévin "misutaaa" Rabier, who left the team a week ago. The organization decided to replace the player amid a poor first half of the year, where the best achievement of Dan "apEX" Madesclaire's squad was a second-place finish at BLAST Premier Spring Final 2022.
The first matches of the renewed Vitality roster will take place at BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022, which will be held from August 19 to 28. The team will play in Group A, where its opponents will be OG, NIP and Astralis.
Vitality's current lineup is:
Dan "apEX" Madesclaire
Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut
Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen
Emil "Magisk" Reif
Lotan "Spinx" Giladi
Danny "zonic" Sørensen (coach)
