The French esports organization Vitality is finally ready to expand its CS:GO roster to a six-man lineup after reports sprung up two weeks back that they were actively seeking out a new player. It seems that Vitality has shortlisted their pick from among a few speculated candidates and it is Nabil "Nivera" Benrlitom that has made the cut according to a report by 1pv.fr.
Nivera To Reportedly Join Vitality As Sixth Player
About two weeks back it had been reported that Vitality was expanding their lineup to a six-man roster. At the time the candidates who were likely being scouted by them were Bryan "Maka" Canda, Nabil "Nivera" Benrlitom, Ali "hAdji" Haïnouss, and Nicolas "Keoz" Dgus. It seems that the French organization has finally made its choice with Nivera being the one picked up by Vitality’s coach Remy “XTQZZZ” Quoniam.
The 19-year-old who currently plays for Team Heretics is one of the hottest upcoming prospects from the region who has been playing with the French lineup of Heretic for about seven months now. Though the team did not win any big tournaments during this time they have certainly managed to dominate the local scene with Nivera managing to attain an overall rating of 1.11 in the last six months.
The Belgium-Moroccan professional has already played with experienced players like Fabien “kioShiMa” Fiey and is adept at using both an AWP and a rifle. This can work very well for Vitality who seem to be looking for a versatile sixth player who can adapt to various situations and tactics.
With reports suggesting that both the organizations have already reached a mutual agreement on the transfer and are supportive of the player’s growth, the official announcement should be coming out “very soon”.
Many players from the French lineup of Vitality have played professionally with Nivera’s elder brother Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom and though he has left the game to pursue a career in VALORANT, it’s time for his younger brother to play with some of the best players in the region and carry forward the torch.
Vitality’s reported six-man roster is as follows,
- Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut
- Dan "apEX" Madesclaire
- Cedric "RpK" Guipouy
- Richard "shox" Papillon
- Kevin "misutaaa" Rabier
- Nabil "Nivera" Benrlitom
- Remy "XTQZZZ" Quoniam [Coach]
