Report: Vitality eyes shox and kioShiMa to replace NBK- ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!
According to a 1pv.fr report, Team Vitality is interested in Richard "shox" Papillon and Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey as potential replacements for Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt.
NBK- was benched due to Vitality's performance at StarLadder Berlin Major 2019, which also led to some alleged friction within the team.
All-round proficient player shox is currently signed to G2 Esports and is reportedly considering his options. Rumours claim that he and Lucas "Lucky" Chastang will be leaving G2 soon and could be replaced by CR4ZY's duo, Nemanja "nexa" Isaković and Nemanja "huNter-" Kovač. kioShiMa was released from Cloud9 in April after a five-month stint and has been without a team since. The veteran player has several accolades to his name like a 1st place finish in StarLadder i-League StarSeries Season 3 and 2nd place in Esports Championship Series Season 3 Finals.
While KioShiMa is a free agent, securing shox could cost Vitality a lot more money and could factor into which of the two they secure. With BLAST Pro Series Moscow just around the corner, Vitality will need to make sure it has a complete roster before Friday.
