According to multiple sources, Team Vitality is close to complete deals with a new roster consisting of Santeri "BONECOLD" Sassi, Kamil "baddyG" Graniczka, Joona "H1BER" Parviainen and Nathan "nataNk" Bocqueho. The fifth player will be Jokūbas "Cender" Labutis, who is the only player left in Vitality from the previous roster.
It was certainly a big disappointment for the players and management of Vitality not to advance to the VRL - France: Revolution - Stage 1 - Main Event playoffs. Shortly after that the French organization decided to move Tobias "ShadoW" Flodström to the bench. As it turned out, the Swede will not be the only player to leave Vitality.
As reported by Guillaume "neL" Rathier, Bayram "Bramz" Ben Redjeb and Thomas "kAdavra" Johner will also leave the ranks of the Bees, who will most likely join Team BDS, which is missing two players after the departure of Mikołaj "Mickebwoy" Chojnacki and David "Fizzy" Figueiredo. Another player to part ways with the French organization is Vakaris "vakk" Bebravičius, who has been linked with a transfer to Acend, where confirmation seems only a matter of time.
On April 4, Corentin Phalip reported that Team Vitality's new roster will be built around Santeri "BONECOLD" Sassi, with Tanishq "Tanizhq" Sabharwal becoming the new head coach. The signing of a new head coach has now been officially confirmed. The former Acend In-Game Leader will be joined by Kamil "baddyG" Graniczka, who recently played on FunPlus Phoenix as a stand-in, but after the VCT 2022 - EMEA - Stage 1 - Challengers - Main Event, the European champion parted ways with the Chinese organization.
Joona "H1BER" Parviainen, who is currently contracted by KOI, is expected to become Vitality's next signing. The Finn had a chance to show in front of a bigger audience during the VCT 2022 - Stage 1 - Masters Reykjavík at Fnatic, replacing Nikita "Derke" Sirmitev. The European team lost both of their matches and dropped out of the tournament, but H1ber was definitely one of Fnatic's best players and his good form is expected to result in a move to Vitality.
The last new player to join the team is Nathan "nataNk" Bocqueho, who spent last season in Anorthosis Famagusta Esports. After the end of the previous season, the French decided to look for a new home, and that would be Vitality. The second season of Valorant Regional League France: Revolution will begin in mid-May, so we can expect the official debut of the new lineup then.
