Team Vitality Parts with Dupreeh and signs Shahar “flameZ” Shushan

It's the end of an era for Team Vitality's CS:GO team and the start of a new one. 

A Legend Departs

Team Vitality has made an announcement that is sure to check the Counter-Strike world: they are going separate ways with Dupreeh. 

Team Vitality has released a series of tweets and a blog post detailing their decision. Recognizing Dupreeh's vital contributions to their success in CS:GO during his almost two years with the organization, Team Vitality feels they need to begin cultivating the next generation of Team Vitality Counter-Strike champions. As such, Dupreeh is no longer on the active roster. With CS:GO Esports at its end and Counter-Stike 2 Esports about to begin, it's a fitting time for a passing of the torch. 

The 30-year-old Dupreeh is the most decorated CS:GO pro in history. Having attended all 19 majors in CS:GO Esports and winning 5, his accomplishments within CS:GO are without rival. Fittingly enough, his 5th major win was the last major in CS:GO Esports, the Paris Major 2023 with a 2-0 victory over GamerLegion. 

Dupreeh has tweeted that he hadn't felt like it was the end of the road for Team Vitality's current CS:GO team but respects their decision. He clarified he has no intentions of retiring. He will be looking for a new organization to begin his run in Counter-Strike 2 Esports.

A New Legend Begins

Immediately following up on their belief in the need to cultivate a new generation of talent, Team Vitality simultaneously announced the signing of rising CS:GO star Shahar “flameZ” Shushan. After spending more than two years with OG Esports, flameZ will begin his Counter-Strike 2 career as a member of Team Vitality. 

Team Vitality is confident that under the guidance of seasoned coach Danny “zonic” Sørensen, flameZ will more than rise to the occasion and help usher in a new era of Team Vitality dominance in Counter-Strike.
