Ingame leader of Vitality - Dan apEX Madesclair left the roster in the middle of BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2021. This became known from the club's social networks.
In an official statement, Vitality coach XTQQZZZ said that the reason for this decision was problems within the team, the global situation with the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and apEX personal problems. There are also fears in the team that few people can take the role of apEX, and the team itself hopes that he will return as soon as possible.
