Team Vitality formed its League of Legends team in December 2015 as its first expansion into PC gaming, acquiring Gambit Gaming's EU LCS Spring 2016 seed. Their first player signed at the time of announcement was former H2k support kaSing.[1] 5 days later, Vitality completed their roster with former Gambit toplaner Cabochard, former CW jungler Shook, former ROCCAT midlaner Nukeduck and kaSing's former teammate Hjärnan. For their coaching staff, Vitality signed former Gambit coach Shaunz.[2]

2016 Season

Spring Split EU LCS

Vitality's roster was considered one of the top lineups in the LCS, and they finished the split in third place at 13-5, behind the surprise first-place G2 Esports and second-place H2k. Cabochard and kaSing were elected to the split's All Pro Team, as the most outstanding players in their positions. In the playoffs, however, they were upset by the sixth-place Fnatic and eliminated in the quarterfinals.

Summer Split EU LCS

Before the start of the split, jungler Shook and AD carry Hjarnan departed the team, the latter due to health reasons. Vitality signed Mightybear, the former jungler of the LSPL team Newbee, and AD carry Police of NA LCS Apex Gaming and formerly ESC Ever.[3]

In the summer split, Vitality failed to live up to prior standards, accruing only three match wins throughout the season with a 3-9-6 series record. Shook returned after four weeks of play and became the starting jungler once again.[4] After a tiebreaker against FC Schalke 04, Vitality solidified seventh place and avoided playing in relegation series, although they also missed the playoffs.

2017 Season

Prior to the start of the competitive season, Vitality again overhauled its roster. First, Vitality hired on Steeelback, the AD carry of Team ROCCAT, to replace the departing Police.[5] Next, the team picked up Hachani, the former support player of top-tier LCK team KT Rolster, to replace kaSing.[6] In the jungle, Vitality initially looked toward Afreeca Freecs jungler LirA,[7] but the deal unexpectedly fell through, as LirA felt uncomfortable with the change. Vitality instead wound up signing GBM, formerly of the NA LCS's NRG eSports, as well as Djoko of the EU CS team Millenium.[8][9] Djoko earned the starting jungler spot while GBM became a substitute; Alderiate and AoD also signed with the team as substitutes.

Spring Split EU LCS

With the reorganization of the EU LCS regular season format, Vitality was drafted into Group B along with Origen, H2k Gaming, Splyce, and Unicorns of Love. After opening the season with a paltry 1-3 record over three weeks, support player Hachani was benched.[10] Three days later, GBM moved to the starting mid laner position, while Nukeduck took over the empty support role.
