“They’re not here to be loved, they’re here to win it all. Please meet our LEC roster for the 2021 Summer Split #VisforVillains *pending Riot approval,” Team Vitality tweeted.
The new additions and their history
With these new players joining the roster, Vitality looks to improve in 2021. SLT’s career has been steadily improving with his time in France. Most notably, he finished first place with Berlin International Gaming at the recent PRM 2021 Spring Playoffs. Known for his Jayce, Gnar and Gragas, his wide champion pool will help Team Vitality in their future match-ups.
Next up is the new jungler, Selfmade. Formerly of Fnatic and MAD Lions, his success on champions like Nidalee, Nocturne and Elise is well-known. On Fnatic, he helped the team reach two LEC finals, losing in both to G2 Esports. His start to 2021 was slow, but on a new team has an opportunity to help carry a team to victory.
Last but not least, the new mid laner, LIDER. Competing recently for Mousesports, his plays on Yasuo, Zed and Ryze helped them win some important competitions. One of those was Prime League 2020 Season Finals, where they beat FC Schalke 04 Evolution 3-2. Looking to make a name for himself in the LEC, he joins Team Vitality for future success.
Team Vitality look to add for Summer Split
The two returning Team Vitality players are Juš “Crownshot” Marušič and Labros “Labrov” Papoutsakis, both relatively recent signings. Crownshot has been with the team since February of this year, while Labrov has been with the team since May 2020. Along with their substitute Markos “Comp” Stamkopoulos, the team has added fresh talent to an underperforming roster.
