Last week, it was announced that eSports organization Vitality had acquired the EU LCS spot previously held by Gambit Gaming. They announced the signing of support player Raymond "KaSing" Tsang, best known for his time on H2k Gaming and helping to turn that team around. Today, Vitality has revealed the rest of their roster.
In the top lane will be Lucas "Cabochard" Simon-Meslet, who was consistently one of the best players on Gambit in recent times. Jungling will be Ilyas "Shook" Hartsema, who made his name with Alliance/Elements. Erlend "Nukeduck" Holm will be the mid laner, having recently departed from Team ROCCAT. Re-joining KaSing in the bottom lane will be Petter "Hjarnan" Freyschuss. The two worked extremely well together in their time together on H2k, and will have the opportunity to continue as teammates with a new organization.
All in all, the lineup looks like an extremely solid one. With the exception of the bottom lane, these players haven't played together previously, so building up synergy and trust will be a priority for them. With that said, from an individual skill standpoint, this lineup certainly looks capable of at least reaching the playoffs in the EU LCS, if not more. They will be joined by coach Kévin "Shaunz" Ghanbarzadeh, who became popular with the players during his time filling the same role with Gambit Gaming.
The French organization is looking to make a name for themselves in the League of Legends scene, and this lineup certainly looks capable of doing just that. It'll be fun to watch what this team is capable of in 2016.
