A report from French site 1pv has indicated that Vitality has an interest in both Fabian “kioShiMa” Fiey and Richard “Shox” Papillon.
The report claims that the potential replacements for Vitality’s own Nathan “NBK” Schmitt, following his benching during the Major, are Fabian “kioShiMa” Fiey and Richard “Shox” Papillon. The report suggests that Vitality is primarily interested in Fiey. According to rumors, however, Vitality is also keeping tabs on Papillon.
This follows information from the French site that G2’s Papillon and newer teammate Lucas “Lucky” Chastang would be stepping down from the roster. G2 is subsequently rumored to be in talks with Cr4zy’s star duo Nemenja "hunter-" Kovač and Nemanja “nexa” Isaković.
Fiey would be the easier option for Vitality to target. He’s been without an organization since his time in Cloud9 ended in April of this year. Industry pundits have frequently commented on Fiey’s inactivity being a waste of talent, but no team has signed the player. Nathan “NBK” Schmitt is stepping down from Vitality’s roster following the Blast Pro Series Moscow this weekend, the French organization will this be under limited time to make a decision regarding his replacement.
