Today we part ways with our Valorant Head Coach @Tanizhq

Thanks for this wonderful season and we wish you all the best for the future 💛

Tanizhq was announced as part of the team back in early April, allowing him to build a roster that would include players like Santeri "BONECOLD" Sassi and Kamil "baddyG" Graniczka. During that time, Vitality participated solely in the French VRL, which they won after four losses in the regular season, and the VRL Finals.

He had been previously benched by the team. He was sidelined due to comments made towards Karmine Corp Karmine Corp Europe Rank #44 Amilwa Amine Saidi TakaS Jonathan Paupard mikee Michael Lim SHIN Ryad Ensaad Newzera Alexis Humbert 's assistant coach, who previously coached Vitality, on Twitter. He was away during the two weeks leading up to the VRL playoffs, during which Harry "Gorilla" Mepham acted as interim head coach.
