After weeks of rumors and speculation, Vitality has revealed its entire lineup for the upcoming LEC spring split 2022. Vitality has kept two players from the last split and has signed three big names to complete the roster. The new signings include Matyáš “Carzzy” Orság, Barney “Alphari” Morris, and Luka “Perkz” Perković, making Vitality one of the best teams in the west.
Selfmade and Labrov return
Vitality’s journey in 2021 was a roller coaster ride. The team showed glimpses of brilliance throughout the year but failed to make any significant dent in the playoffs of either split. Two of the best performing players in the team last split were Oskar “Selfmade” Boderek and Labros “Labrov” Papoutsakis, who fortunately have been retained by Vitality. Labrov is a young Support player who has shown a lot of potential in the past, whereas Selfmade is considered one of the best Junglers in LEC.
Forming a new super team
Once Worlds 2021 concluded, rumors surrounding Vitality and their interest in forming a new super team started to surface. At the start of the offseason, it was speculated that Vitality had signed Perkz from Cloud9, Alphari from Team Liquid, and Carzzy from Mad Lions. However, this was not confirmed officially until recently when Vitality released an announcement video for their new lineup.
Perkz is arguably the most decorated player in the West, and he has 5 LEC, 1 LCS, and an MSI trophy to his name. Furthermore, he, along with G2 Esports, managed to reach the finals of Worlds 2019, which is the highest ever finish by any western team since season 1. His last year in North America was full of ups and downs, but with Vitality, he would be looking to re-establish his dominance domestically.
Alphari and Carzzy, on the other hand, are mechanically gifted players that excel in the laning phase. They are two of the best players in their position and certainly bring a lot of flair to the table.
