While Viki is staying on as captain in the revamped roster, the four new and upcoming players include toplaner CrowMac, jungler Karina, midlaner Tifa, and support player Indifferent. Under the Rising Bees banner, Viki has a wealth of experience to unite and lead the team.

As for Tifa, her strengths are in map knowledge and shot calling. Additionally, Indifferent has great control of vision during matches and Team Vitality considers her as one of the top supports in Europe.

In terms of the Rising Bees' coaches, they are the same ones as last year. They are coach Valentin "OneForOne" Ho-Coui-Youn and team manager Olivier “NephaleM” Morizet.

“I thank the French Bees, our first generation of players, for having put in place the solid foundations of this team," Team Vitality president and co-founder Fabien “Neo” Devide said. "We wish them the best in their new adventures and to be able to live from their passions as long as possible."

Neo added that Team Vitality is now entering a second phase with the Rising Bees, which is more international and competitive.

"We managed to find original, combative and complementary profiles," he continued. "We can't wait for the first competitions to begin!"

The Rising Bees players hope to reach the top three in the women's scene and dominate the Mastercard Nexus Tour (MNT), which is a mixed scene in France's League of Legends circuit.
