Apex talks about his growth in CS:GO as IGL and current form of Vitality

French esports organization Team Vitality is wrapping up the year successfully. Right after PGL Major Stockholm 2021 The report has been released stressed that Vitality will sign the Danish trio Peter “⁠Dupreeh⁠” Rasmussen, Emil “⁠Magisk⁠” Reif and Danny “⁠Zonic⁠” Sørensen. It’s clear that the current roster won’t stick together, but Vitality still isn’t giving up on winning.

Along with the team’s transition to securing multiple finishes on higher podiums, even their IGL (Leader of the Game), Dan “apEX” Madesclaire, has shown tremendous growth as the name-caller of his faction.

Vitality clearly hasn’t had a great year when it comes to competitive CS:GO. In the better times of the year, it’s hard for the team to keep up with Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut’s potential leads to an early exit from major events.

Things turned around for the French squad in the final quarter of the year. They started to register for the top three more consistently, but only a mediocre 5thorder-8order position at PGL Major Stockholm 2021 means changes in order.

However, nothing has changed when it comes to the attitude of the whole team to keep fighting and win. This resulted in Vitality recently winning their first premier CS:GO tournament of the year, IEM Winter 2021, along with a runner-up finish at BLAST Premier: Fall Finals 2021.

ApEX in an interview with HLTV spoke about this change happening in team dynamics and explained how they managed to play well despite being branded as ‘a dead team’. ApEX stated that although the group never talked about it, they all wanted to finish on a high note.

Vitality’s final piece on apEX working on teamwork is an indication of his growth as an IGL, since taking charge last year after Alex “ALEX” McMeekin’s departure.

Talking about his transition to this role and how he is doing now as a shot caller, apEX says that he strives to be one of the hardest workers in the industry. Although initially unsure if this change would work, all he did was try his best.

Although Vitality’s French team is about to part ways for the 2022 season, it will be interesting to see how apEX adapts to the new changes, especially with the roster that has now become international.
