Team Vitality has announced a brand new acquisition for their League of Legends team, that being Oskar "VandeR" Bogdan, who will play in the bottom lane.

This follows the announcement just a few days ago that Jakob "YamatoCannon" Mebdi would be joining the team as a head coach, who decided to field a fully European roster. This therefore means that Ha "Hachani" Seung-Chan, Heo "Irean" Young-Cheol, and Lee "GBM" Chang-Suk are departing the team, with GBM already finding another team in the form of eUnited, as announced on Twitter.

"It was truly a pleasure and an honor to work with them, even if during the months we spent together, they weren't offered the opportunity to perform at their highest level and the team didn't manage to show their best on the LCS stage," Vitality said. "We are still highly praising the qualities of the 3 of them, and wish them the greatest possible success in the future."

YamatoCannon was also influential in recruiting VandeR, who will be part of the team once they the "expected approval from Riot Games," and will will join Pierre "Steelback" Medjaldi, Erlend "Nukeduck" Våtevik Holm, Charly "Djoko" Guillard, and Lucas "Cabochard" Simon-Meslet, who are all staying with the side.

Is YamatoCannon's influence going to pay off?
