The ECS Season 7 is underway! Some of the best team in the world are currently competing in the competition. Currently, the quarterfinals of the regular season are taking place. Let’s have a look at one of the games.
We picked this game for you since it between, Virtus.Pro and VItality. VP is currently struggling to survive in the competitive landscape. While the French team, VItality won its 2nd title this weekend. Let’s see if VP has what it takes to beat VItality or the French team will completely demolish the struggling Poles.
No one could have predicted the demise of the Virtus.Pro. The team has failed to shine for a couple of years now and it safe to say that they are no longer the best CS: GO team in Poland.
There was a time when the organization was considered legendary owing to its incredible success in Major competitions. Their players were considered veterans in their craft. But now, the Poles are not even a shadow of their former selves. This is the most generous way to explain the demise of the team. Once the organization was rated amongst the most successful CS: GO teams. The team was quite successful in big competitions. Now they are not even considered as a tier 2 team. The Poles continue to make changes to their roster but nothing special has happened for VP.
Fall of the Titans
After failing to deliver results, the team moved Jarosław “pashaBiceps” Jarząbkowski and Filip “NEO” Kubski to the inactive roster. Once upon a time, these players were the stars of the Major-winning team and now it is fair to say that their careers have ended. The team currently relies on Paweł “byali” Bieliński and Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski. For months, the team is trying to form the perfect roster around the Duo. Meanwhile, perhaps the best player of VP, Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas competes for devils, one who are currently beating some of the best teams in the world. After parting ways from VP, TaZ spent some time playing for Kinguin, who also won a couple of titles after recruiting the veteran into its ranks.
A much-needed restart
After a series of disappointing results, one thing that is admirable about VP is that they have a young and talented roster. We believe that if the roster is given enough time, then VP could become a solid tier 2 if not a tier one team.
Vegi joining the roster
On 17th April, the veteran CS: GO team, Virtus.Pro announced the arrival Arek “Vegi” Nawojski to its first team. The CIS team was struggling to find its fifth player since they moved Mateusz ‘TOAO’ Zawistowski to the bench last month. This will not be the first time that Vegi represents Virtus.Pro. Since he made several appearances for the team in online competition. Now it seems that Virtus.Pro is ready to officially sign the player in its ranks. We should tell you that Vegi is just an 18-year-old starlet. Despite being young he has previously made competitive appearances for PACT. We really hope that Vegi will play a crucial role in changing the fortunes of VP in the competitive landscape.
Talented player – Vegi
Vegi has what it takes to bring glory days back to VP. The team currently hold a 5-11 record ever since Vegi started competing. We know that this is not the best of results but it is enough to get VP into the ECS quarterfinals. They also won against LDLC, OwmS, and NoChance. The Poles have surely got what it takes to be a better team by the end of 2019.
Virtus.Pro is still a prestigious name in the competitive landscape of CS: GO. Yet the bitter reality is that the team holds little to no value these days. Unfortunately, teams like Sprout and Windigo can be considered far superior teams. The side will surely have a tough test against Vitality.
Team Vitality is an organization from France that owns League of Legends, Call of Duty, FIFA, Rainbow Six: Siege, Halo, Rocket League, Arena of Valor, Street Fighter V, Player Unknown Battlegrounds and H1Z1. On September 14, 2018, the French telecommunications company Orange, became the title sponsor of the club.
Vitality won its second competitive title by winning the first edition of the Charleroi tournament this weekend. They beat the German team, Sprout quite convincingly in the final (16-12, 16-6) after dismissing their compatriots G2 (16-14, 16-19, 16-5) in the semi-final. Vitality has lost just 2 out of its 9 games played. This impressive form of the team can be attributed to its impressive roster. They hold one of the most impressive players of the competitive landscape, NBK.
The star player – NBK
NBK started his professional career back in 2008. Since then he has played for some of the best team in the world. He won two major titles with team LDLC. Since 2013, NBP consistently ranks among the best players in the world.
NBK joined G2 in February 2017. With the team, he won the DreamHack Masters Malmö 2017 Previously, he played for the Team Envy, with whom he became the champion of the Dreamhack Cluj-Napoca 2015.
It is fair to say that Vitality is a far better side than today’s VP. The Poles will really need a miracle to win this quarter final encounter. Since NBK and Vitality will surely want to build on the Charleroi victory. Meanwhile, VP lost to Eplison 2-0. We foresee a solid win for the French side in the quarterfinals of the ECS Season 7. They will surely be aiming to qualify for the finals that will be taking place in June.
Team Vitality 2-0 Virtus.Pro
