ApEX returns as a Team Vitality's in-game leader for IEM Katowice2021-02-18 22:12:00
The in-game leader was put on the bench by coach Rémy «XTQZZZ» Quoniam in the middle of the BLAST Premier Spring Groups so that he could deal with «unjustified accusations in addition to the current health context». ApEX suffered from stress, burnout, and personal problems during the start of the season.
Vitality played at BLAST Premier with Nabil «Nivera» Benrlitom as a substitution while Richard «shox» Papillon took the captain`s role but the team lost to Evil Geniuses and fall to the Spring Showdown.
Nivera is now expected to play only on three maps: on Dust2 and on Nuke instead of Kévin «misutaaa» Rabier and on Inferno instead of Richard «shox» Papillon.
