Vitality’s final match of 2021 also marks the end of the current roster. It marks the end of an era for the French squad, the end of a rather successful 3-year project. It was an emotional moment for the players who played their last match together. They lost to Natus Vincere, but won the hearts of the community.

Players and the community react

The community came out in support to the Vitality squad and in particular the in-game leader’s passion for the game. Here are some tweets by players and community members after Vitality’s final match of 2021.


Thank you to all the French for supporting us. We have tried for 3 years to make France shine on the counter strike. There have been ups and downs, but you have been behind us a lot, and that we will never forget.

Vitality’s performance through 2021 has been spectacular. Unfortunately, they were overshadowed by the brilliance of the Navi CS: GO squad. With a mix of veterans and newcomers on its roster, Vitality’s achievements were truly brilliant. We don’t know what the players’ future holds, but the end of the Vitality squad’s time together is truly the end of an era. Vitality’s final match ended with a loss, but the players end 2021 on a high.
