JACKZ features on Vitality's lineup for ESL Pro League Season 17 instead of dupreeh
French player Audric "JACKZ" Jug has been included in Vitality's roster submitted for ESL Pro League Season 17, replacing Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen. This is evident from the official website of the prestigious league, which provides a comprehensive list of the lineups for all participating teams.
At the time of publishing, Vitality has yet to comment on the changes made. It is not known whether the lineup presented on ESL's website is final. Besides JACKZ, it also includes Lotan "Spinx" Giladi, Emil "Magisk" Reif, Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut, Dan "apEX" Madesclaire, as well as coach Danny "zonic" Sørensen and his assistant Mathieu "MaT" Leber.
Earlier, rumors emerged in the CS:GO community suggesting that dupreeh could soon be going inactive. The Danes' possible break from competition may be due to the imminent birth of his child.
JACKZ has an active contract with HEET, which he represented in 2022. According to insider Guillaume "neL" Ratier, the 30-year-old Frenchman will depart the club, which intends to rebuild the squad without the experienced player.
Vitality will start their ESL Pro League Season 17 campaign in three weeks. From March 8 to 12, the team will be competing in Group C, where their opponents in the running for a spot in the playoffs will be FaZe, NIP, OG, 00NATION, paiN, Grayhound and Rooster.
