TEAM VITALITY ENTERS THE STREET FIGHTER 6 RING WITH PLAYERS SAYFF AND VALMASTER

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

  • After announcing their Tekken8 roster in April, Team Vitality furthers their commitment to the fighting game scene with their Street Fighter 6 roster.
  • Star players, Sayff and Valmaster, will make their debut wearing the club’s colours during DreamHack Dallas from May 31 to June 2, 2024.
  • Street Fighter 6 marks the eleventh esports title Team Vitality competes in, as the French club continues to strengthen its international expansion strategy while aiming for a prime place during this summer’s Esports World Cup.

Team Vitality, the leading international esports club, is proud to announce its new formidable Street Fight 6 lineup. Stepping into the spotlight, the organisation welcomes Canadian powerhouse Sayff, joined by renowned French player Valmaster. This expansion of Team Vitality’s rosters not only fortifies their position as a titan in esports, but also highlights their passion and determination to shine on the international stage.

A DUO READY TO BREAK EVERYTHING

Team Vitality is thrilled to welcome two new talented players to the Hive:

Sayff, the courageous Canadian champion

Originally from Canada, Sayff, 33, has established himself as one of the most formidable players in the North American Street Fighter scene. With his offensive play style and spectacular combos, he is a force to be reckoned with.

In Street Fighter V, Sayff has conquered the arena, proving himself as one of the world’s top players, renowned for his unparalleled mastery of the character Urien. Captivating fans worldwide, Sayff is unmatched when it comes to showing off his technical prowess, known for his expert use of abilities like the iconic “Aegis Reflector”. More recently in Street Fighter 6, Sayff found his rhythm with the character Ken in an explosive style. Sayff has continued to shine in numerous competitions, dominating the Canadian tournament scene, winning 1st place in the North American Midwest, and securing top 8 in last February’s Capcom Cup X –the biggest Street Fighter tournament in history. Sayff’s Street Fighter career is a story of local pride, being a leader in his community and shocking the world with his abilities.

His exceptional performance goes beyond the gaming realm, as he seamlessly blends his passion for fighting games with his distinguished scientific career. Boasting over a decade of experience in atmospheric chemistry and climate change research, Sayff has excelled in multiple industries. With a doctorate in the field, he was also invited to contribute his expertise at Harvard University as a researcher. Through his journey, Sayff hopes to inspire the next generation of players to pursue excellence in education and all aspects of their lives.

With a career led by numerous victories and a reputation as a player who is both technical and ferocious, Sayff wishes to continue his rise to the top. Backed with the unwavering support of Team Vitality, he sets his sights on achieving new prestigious titles and establishing his dominance in the fighting game scene.

“Joining a team as prestigious as Team Vitality is a huge honour and a source of immense motivation. As a Canadian player, we are sometimes held back by travelling, and I have always dreamed of being part of an organisation that shares my passion for competition and vision of excellence. This presents the perfect opportunity for me to push my limits and unleash my potential on the international stage” comments Sayff, “I’m particularly excited to compete in the Esports World Cup, where I hope to put on a great show and get the fans’ adrenaline pumping!”

Valmaster, the fearless French fighter

Valentin “Valmaster” Petit, aged 29, is a renowned French player in the fighting game community. Born in Paris, Valmaster developed a passion for video games from an early age, particularly fighting games, in which he quickly showed exceptional skills in.

His career on Street Fighter IV began in 2013 through his participation in local French tournaments. Valmaster made his mark in the competitive scene, harnessing a remarkable talent for predicting his opponents’ playstyle and contesting them with deadly combinations. With Chun-Li as his go-to character, Valmaster’s fast and precise playstyle allows him to dominate the competition with style.

Even with a brief break from his career to compete in Overwatch, Valmaster made a powerful comeback. He quickly reached the top 3 best French Street Fighter IV players, maintaining his position in editions V and 6 of the game. He has continued to prove his mastery, reaching the finals of the Capcom Cup four times (2014, 2015, 2023, 2024) and securing the title of French champion twice in the Capcom Pro Tour (2022, 2023) for Street Fighter V and 6. Having gained worldwide recognition for his achievements in numerous titles, from competing in international tournaments such as EVO and Stungest and local French tournaments, Valmaster has solidified his position as one of the world’s top players.

Despite being away from the game for several years, Valmaster has retained all of his talent, and he is now set on qualifying for the Esports World Cup this summer!

“I’m really looking forward to joining Team Vitality. For me, it’s a very different feeling to the other teams I’ve joined in the past. I’ve always wanted to be part of a leading French team like this. I really want to achieve good results and I hope to qualify for the EWC and the Capcom Cup. It would be great to represent them at these major international events,“ explains Valmaster.

A NEW HOPE FOR SUCCESS IN THE ESPORTS WORLD CUP

Valmaster and Sayff will make their official debut donning the iconic Team Vitality colours at DreamHack Dallas, from May 31 to June 2, 2024. Marking the qualifying stage for the Esports World Cup this summer, the two players are set to prove their skills and determination by securing a place in the finals. The second stage of qualifications will be held at DreamHack Summer 2024, taking place in Elmia, Sweden, from June 14 to 16, 2024, as well as at the prestigious EVO in Las Vegas from July 19 to 21.

The arrival of Team Vitality into the Street Fighter 6 scene, marks a significant milestone in the club’s international expansion. This move not only enables the organisation to connect with the fighting game community but also extends their reach into North American territory.

ESL FACEIT Group releases documentary detailing the fight for women’s equality in esports and the efforts of the ESL Impact circuit

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The ESL FACEIT Group, the world’s largest esports and gaming company, has released “Making an Impact 2023” [available here], a documentary highlighting the work done via ESL Impact toward promoting women’s esports and levelling the playing field—revealing a powerful narrative that shatters barriers, defies stereotypes and fosters an environment that’s representative and inclusive for all.

The documentary follows teams of women competing at ESL Impact live events and Global Finals at DreamHack Dallas and DreamHack Valencia. The esports athletes featured discuss the ups and downs of competition, team dynamics and the pressure to win before a backdrop of toxicity and sexism endemic to esports, including Russel “Twistzz” Van Dulken, Jonathan “EliGE” Jablonowski, Ksenia “vilga” Klyuenkova and Mounira “GooseBreeder” Dobie.

ESL Impact was launched at the beginning of 2022 as part of ESL FACEIT Group’s (EFG) #GGFORALL program. For over two years, it has set a standard for supporting DE&I in Counter-Strike esports by providing women teams, broadcast talent, and support staff additional opportunities to follow their dreams of being a part of the professional esports scene.

Over the past four seasons, the ecosystem has cemented itself as the hold for premier women’s Counter-Strike competition, and created critical pipelines for players and teams to grow – the league has increased participation in women’s esports by 25 percent and empowered women to break into the traditionally male-dominated industry.

Happy to connect you with a member of the ESL Impact team to learn more about what’s revealed in the documentary, the broader issues of toxicity within gaming and the powerful effect the circuit is having on women’s esports.
