Team Vitality is a French League of Legends team formed in 2015 as an acquisition of Gambit Gaming’s slot in the 2016 EU LCS Spring Split. Vitality’s first roster included Raymond “kaSing” Tsang, Lucas “Cabochard” Simon-Meslet, Ilyas “Shook” Hartsema, Erlend “Nukeduck” Holm, and Peter “Hjarnan” Freyschuss.
For a new team, it had a great start to competition. With a 13-5 record, Vitality didn’t struggle to take games against European’s finest teams, and finished its first split in third place.
In the 2016 EU LCS Spring Playoffs, however, Vitality couldn’t repeat the same performance and was immediately kicked out in the quarterfinals after losing 1-3 to Fnatic. After a disappointing Playoffs performance, Vitality decided to bring Kim “Mightybear” Min-su as a new jungler, and replaced Hjarnan who struggled with health issues with two bot laners, Park "Police" Hyeong-gi and Victor “Reje” Eriksen.
The new players struggled to find synergy and although Shook returned during the 2016 EU LCS Summer Split, Vitality couldn’t keep up with other teams. It finished the regular season seventh, with no seed for the Summer Playoffs.
Charly "Djoko" Guillard, Lee “GMB” Chang-seok, and Pierre “Steelback” Medjaldi joined Vitality’s starting roster in the 2017 EU LCS Spring Split. A rough start to the season resulted in continuous roster shuffles, with GBM eventually getting the starting mid lane position and Nukeduck taking over the support role. The team continued to struggle, and with a 3-10 record it finished fourth in its group.
Vitality showed a better performance during the 2017 Summer Split after signing Oskar “Vander” Bogdan as the new support, but it wasn’t enough. The team finished the season without reaching playoffs.
Heading into 2018, Vitality overhauled its roster around top laner Cabochard, who had been with the team from the start. Erberk "Gilius" Demir joined the team alongside three rookies, Daniele “Jiizuke” di Mauro, Amadeu “Attila” Carvalho, and Jakub "Jactroll" Skurzyński.
2018 was a strong season for Vitality and the team took fourth place both in the Spring Split and in the 2018 EU LCS Spring Playoffs. After the fifth week of the Summer Split, Vitality signed jungler Mateusz “Kikis” Szkudlarek to strengthen the roster, and he brought with him a positive change.
By the end of the 2018 EU LCS Summer Split, Vitality made it to second place with a 12-6 record, falling only behind Fnatic. Vitality secured its first seed to the World Championship. At Worlds 2018, a lack of international experience ended the team’s run in the group stage.
In 2019, Vitality was approved as one of the 10 franchised teams for the rebranded League of Legends European Championship. The team didn’t make big changes for the 2019 LEC Spring Split starting roster, only replacing Kikis with Lee “Mowgli” Jae-ha. Vitality failed to return its former glory, barely managing to qualify for Playoffs during both splits. The team finished the 2019 LEC Summer Playoffs in just ninth place.
For the 2020 LEC season, Vitality once again rebuilt its roster around Cabochard, this time with players that have no experience performing on the big stage.
