Vitality took revenge. Failed in LFL – the French championship of League of Legends – this year, the bee team concluded its season very well by winning the first edition of the Coupe de France. A competition which brought together all the clubs of the first two divisions of the tricolor scene and four teams qualified via preliminary tournaments.
In the final this Friday evening, in Lyon, Vitality defeated (3-0) the locals of LDLC OL, however double champions of France in 2022. A success acquired at the end of a closer meeting than indicated by the score, especially in the first two innings. A great way to end his adventure with “Vita”, too, for French jungler Duncan “Skeanz” Marquet, who will change teams in 2023, after four years at the club.
If its format is interesting, this Coupe de France, placed very late in the calendar, has been quite criticized for its timing. Weeks after the end of the LFL and during the preliminary negotiations for the opening of the transfer window – most of the finalists have already agreed with other clubs across Europe – the players were not all 100%. A food for thought for the future, even if it does not devalue the performance (and the line of awards) of Vitality.
