Dan Madesclaire, known as “apEX,” is a 27-year-old French CS:GO player who had played for teams like G2 Esports, Team Envy, Titan, and many more. Since October 2018, he has been representing Team Vitality.

A few days ago, the captain of the team, Alex “ALEX” McMeekin, decided to leave the team. Afterward, Team Vitality added the young prodigy Kévin “misutaaa” Rabier. Following these changes, apEX has made a statement and stated that he is the captain of the team now.

Here is what apEX said:

“I’ll start from the beginning… Creating a team from scratch was a real challenge for us in the middle of 2018. Both NBK and I had the idea of doing it, mainly with a talent like ZywOo. It wasn’t an easy task with all the qualifiers we had to go through. We quickly realized that ALEX had a good view on the matter of the attack so it’s been decided to give him that role. (so had that point we had 2 leaders) Both ALEX and XTQZZZ are the big reasons why we developed that well and why we had such a good consistency through 2019 with around 10 playoffs appearances in a row.

After some time, we started to see things differently with NBK and we had to part away and that moment wasn’t easy to live. Nathan is a player I’ve been playing with for 4 years and we had a lot of great moments together. At that point, we decided to pick shox instead of him. ALEX became the captain and things have started to slowly go badly because we had to do too many tournaments in a row that we couldn’t skip. Everyone was slowly getting mentally tired of not being able to show what we were capable of.”

He continued:

“After our loss in EPL we had time to prepare for EPICENTER. It paid up: we won. ALEX lost some motivation to continue playing at the highest level and we felt it. It wasn’t easy to handle it in the end because everything was falling apart. I wanna thank ALEX for the last year we’ve been together, I knew him for a long time but we never had the chance to play together, and I’m happy we’ve done it.

Now we have to rebuild everything in the team, it’s gonna be a long road for us to comeback at the level we were in 2019 but I know all the players I’m playing with, and we are all motivated to give everything to comeback at the really top. Having new blood is something great for the french scene and I think Misutaa deserves his spot, we gonna try to put him in the best conditions to perform and not using him the wrong way as we did in the past for few other players.”

apEX added:

“On a personal note, it wasn’t easy to handle everything because I gave my best to keep all the line ups together but I failed. The last 6 months have been terrible, I couldn’t find my place and I was underperforming. So the big challenge for me is to find that place again and I’m willing to give everything for that. That’s why I am finally feeling ready to be the Captain of this team. It has always been somewhere in my head but I didn’t feel ready for that.

As most of you know, I’ve had emotional issues. And now we are working with a mental coach, I’m getting way better and I’m feeling much better. I believe that our team can make it back to the highest level. I wanna thank everyone who still believes in us and never stopped, your support is one of the most important things. Now time to work.”
