S1mple: "Mr Beast Spinx, who changed everything in this roster, congratz!"2023-05-22 13:04:00
NAVI player Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev highlighted Lotan "Spinx" Giladi for his impact on Vitality, leading to BLAST Paris Major 2023 trophy. He thinks that the addition of the Israeli rifler was the crucial moment that enabled their run. "Mr Beast Spinx, who changed everything in this roster, congratz!" wrote s1mple on Twitter.
Spinx was acquired by Vitality from ENCE in August 2022, replacing Kevin "Misutaaa" Rabier. Two months later, the team lifted the ESL Pro League S16 trophy. The beginning of 2023 wasn't going that well, but this most likely happened due to the internal restructuring in Vitality, previously revealed by apEX.
They won IEM Rio 2023 in late April, followed by the historic trophy at BLAST Paris Major 2023 in May. During his time on the lineup, Spinx averaged a 1.11 HLTV rating, peaking at the last two events with 1.24-1.25. The Israeli was the third-best player at the Paris Major after ZywOo and iM.
