Team Vitality is a French team.

History

Team Vitality formed its League of Legends team in December 2015 as its first expansion into PC gaming, acquiring Gambit Gaming's EU LCS Spring 2016 seed. Their first player signed at the time of announcement was former H2k support kaSing.[1] 5 days later, Vitality completed their roster with former Gambit toplaner Cabochard, former CW jungler Shook, former ROCCAT midlaner Nukeduck and kaSing's former teammate Hjarnan. For their coaching staff, Vitality signed former Gambit coach Shaunz.[2]

2016 Season

Spring Split EU LCS

Vitality's roster was considered one of the top lineups in the LCS, and they finished the split in third place at 13-5, behind the surprise first-place G2 Esports and second-place H2k. Cabochard and kaSing were elected to the split's All Pro Team, as the most outstanding players in their positions. In the playoffs, however, they were upset by the sixth-place Fnatic and eliminated in the quarterfinals.

Summer Split EU LCS

Before the start of the split, jungler Shook and AD carry Hjarnan departed the team, the latter due to health reasons. Vitality signed Mightybear, the former jungler of the LSPL team Newbee, and AD carry Police of NA LCS Apex Gaming and formerly ESC Ever.[3]

In the summer split, Vitality failed to live up to prior standards, accruing only three match wins throughout the season with a 3-9-6 series record. Shook returned after four weeks of play and became the starting jungler once again.[4] After a tiebreaker against FC Schalke 04, Vitality solidified seventh place and avoided playing in relegation series, although they also missed the playoffs.

2017 Season

Prior to the start of the competitive season, Vitality again overhauled its roster. First, Vitality hired on Steeelback, the AD carry of Team ROCCAT, to replace the departing Police.[5] Next, the team picked up Hachani, the former support player of top-tier LCK team KT Rolster, to replace kaSing.[6] In the jungle, Vitality initially looked toward Afreeca Freecs jungler LirA,[7] but the deal unexpectedly fell through, as LirA felt uncomfortable with the change. Vitality instead wound up signing GBM, formerly of the NA LCS's NRG eSports, as well as Djoko of the EU CS team Millenium.[8][9] Djoko earned the starting jungler spot while GBM became a substitute; Alderiate and AoD also signed with the team as substitutes.

Spring Split

With the reorganization of the EU LCS regular season format, Vitality was drafted into Group B along with Origen, H2k Gaming, Splyce, and Unicorns of Love. After opening the season with a paltry 1-3 record over three weeks, support player Hachani was benched.[10] Three days later, GBM moved to the starting mid laner position, while Nukeduck took over the empty support role. Because continuous lack of success they kept shuffeling their roster around without significant improvement and ended far out of reach of playoff positions in 4th place of the group only beating Origen twice and last place of Group A Giants Gaming.

Summer Split

For Summer Split Vitality signed support VandeR and got picked into a nearly identical Group B with promoted Mysterious Monkeys instead of Origen. The roster change helped them improved their performance a bit but they still only managed to place 4th in their group missing out on playoffs again and ending their season early.

2018 Season

Spring Split

Team Vitality rebuilt their new roster around toplaner Cabochard going into Season 8 and signed Gilius along rookies Jiizuké, Minitroupax, and Jactroll who had won the Spring Promotion with Giants. They had an excellent 7-1 start to the Spring Split with their explosive and entertaining playstyle but as the other teams figured out how to slow them down they dropped down and finished the Regular Season in 4th place with a 10-8 record. They ended up in 4th place after playoffs as well after beating H2k Gaming 3-2 in quarterfinals and losing to Fnatic 1-3 semifinals and third-place match against Splyce 2-3 in close series.

Summer Split

Following a mediocre start to Summer Split they signed Kikis after week 5 with a 5-5 record hoping that he could improve the roster. Because this roster change worked out and Vitality finished the Regular Season in 2nd place after winning tiebreaker games against FC Schalke 04 and G2 Esports Gilius decided to step away from the team as they were performing better with Kikis. In semifinals they lost against a strong Schalke team but by beating Misfits 3-1 in third-place match they had earned the second most championship points to qualify for the World Championship as Europe's 2nd seed.

2018 World Championship

At the World Championship they were drawn into group B with LCK third seed Gen.G, NA LCS third seed Cloud 9 and LPL favourite Royal Never Give Up. After going 1-2 in week 1 they upset RNG in week 2 and ended the group with a 3-3 record which meant they exited Worlds early but earned lots of respect for showing the western regions that chinese and korean teams are not unbeatable. This wasn't really satisfying though as they unnecessarily lost both games against Cloud 9 while in the end one win would have been enough to reach quarterfinals.

2019 Season

On November 20, Riot Games announced Team Vitality as one of the ten partner teams for the LEC 2019 Spring Split.[11]

Spring Split

For Season 9 Vitality signed promising jungler Mowgli from LCK team Afreeca Freecs and started off the Split strong yet again looking like a top 3 team before dropping off a bit and finished the Regular Season in 5th place at 10-8. In the quarterfinal series against Fnatic who got to choose which team they wanted to face they had some early leads but just as their opponents predicted they did not manage to snowball these and lost the series 0-3.

Trivia

  • Vitality's 7-11 finish in the LEC 2019 Summer tied with Rogue in the same split for the lowest wins for playoff team in an 18 game season.
    • This record cannot be broken, only tied, as in the ten team, six playoff team, double round robin season format, this is the lowest possible record that a team can have and still finish sixth.
