According to esports journalist Brieuc Seeger, it has been reported that historic support player Zdravets “Hylissang” Galabov, will be joining Team Vitality for the upcoming 2024 season. With his experience and reputation, he has the potential to become a key player in the organization’s newly restructured LEC roster. Despite facing challenges in the previous year with his former team, the 28 year old support remains highly recognized as one of the best players in the league.

In 2023, Hylissang achieved a remarkable feat by leading MAD Lions to win the LEC championship after a stunning comeback from 8th place in the regular season. Despite this impressive victory, MAD’s performance was extremely inconsistent, with a 7th place finish in the summer split and a third place finish in the LEC Season Finals.
In terms of domestic competition and overall talent, MAD’s unpredictability made it difficult for them to compete against more stable sides such as G2 Esports and Fnatic for the European trophy. However, their performance at international events was the catalyst of destruction for the Spanish organization, as they only achieved one victory against a fellow European representative between the Mid Season Invitational and the World Championship.
Despite this, Hylissang’s extensive game knowledge positions him as an invaluable asset for any team in need of guidance through the Rift, especially thanks to his plethora of playoff experience which further solidifies his role as a leader. While he may occasionally display recklessness and over-aggression in his plays, this level of confidence can greatly benefit a team that craves decisiveness in skirmishes and teamfights.
Despite the presence of notable players like Perkz, Upset, Kaiser, Carzzy, and Bo, Vitality has struggled to rebuild its strength after experiencing multiple unsuccessful seasons in the last 2 years. The team has been unable to assemble a stable lineup capable of challenging for the top spot, even after using their vast income.
Vitality’s coaching staff faces a tough challenge in rebuilding their roster after several players left this offseason, with the ultimate goal of clinching an LEC trophy in 2024. Hylissang would be a good piece to start things off, mainly as a seasoned veteran should be able to adapt and guide promising youngsters that might come through the gate next year.
The Worlds 2023 finals are set to continue including incredible matchups, with the possibility of major upsets coming soon in the tournament.
