Guillaume 'neL' Canelo said that Vitality is unlikely to use Nabil 'Nivera' Benrlitom as the sixth player in their squad. So far, this will only apply to the upcoming matches at ESL Pro League Season 13, but it is possible that Vitality will subsequently be limited to five players in the rest of the championships as well. The management of the esports club has not yet given any comments on this matter.
In ESL Pro League Season 13 Team Vitality were seeded in Group B. There they will fight for the right to reach the playoffs with teams such as ENCE, FaZe Clan, G2 Esports, mousesports and NiP.
This decision is due to the recent introduction of penalties for the use of sixth players in the squads. Sanctions, by the way, will be used in RMR tournaments.
If the rumor turns out to be true, Team Vitality will play at EPL S13 with the following roster
- Richard 'shox' Papillon
- Dan 'apEX' Madesclair
- Cedric 'RpK' Goipue
- Mathieu 'ZywOo' Herbaud
- Kevin 'misutaaa' Rabier
- Nabil 'Nivera' Benrlit (inactive)
