Vitality’s CS:GO roster features arguably the best player in the world in Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut – one of the most exceptional prodigy talents the game has ever seen. But, even he may not be enough to carry the team to greatness alone.
Vitality shot up to the world ranking to number two in 2019 as they latched on for a ride with ZyWoo’s own ascent. But for the first half of 2020, the team fell into decline, unable to maintain their lofty placements any time ZyWoo wasn’t dominating the game.
