Bot laner Matyáš “Carzzy” Orság is on the market in the LEC offseason. The Team Vitality bot laner announced on Twitter that his team has given him permission to negotiate an employment deal with other organizations for the 2023 season. Carzzy was originally signed until the end of the 2024 season.

Vitality’s decision to part ways with Carzzy comes after a disastrous year in the LEC. The organization invested a lot of money to assemble a star-studded roster in the 2022 offseason. They fielded top laner Barney “Alphari” Morris, highly-praised jungler Oskar “Selfmade” Boderek, and Europe’s most-accomplished player Luka “Perkz” Perković for the top side of the map. Carzzy, who won back-to-back LEC titles in 2022 with MAD Lions, was hired to play alongside his long-time friend and upcoming talent Labros “Labrov” Papoutsakis.

The roster struggled from the start. While players individually had their bright moments, there was little to no coordinated teamplay across the Spring Split. Vitality barely qualified for the LEC Spring Split playoffs, but was eliminated from the bracket swiftly by G2 Esports. This led to Vitality benching Selfmade between the Spring Split and Summer Split and buying Kang “Haru” Min-seung as a bandaid solution. With Haru, Vitality slowly progressed, but ultimately failed to reach the Summer Split Playoffs and ended in seventh place.

Vitality heading for a rebuild

Carzzy isn’t the only Vitality player that’s on the market again. Earlier, support player Labrov also announced that Vitality had allowed him to seek another home for 2023. Junglers Haru and Selfmade shared the same news.

Although Alphari and Perkz have not yet shared any news about their employment status with Vitality, the team is already headed for a big revamp. In the same period Haru was hired, they also acquired Chinese jungling prodigy Zhou “Bo” Yang-Bo as a long-term investment. Bo had become a free agent after receiving a four-month ban for match-fixing in the Chinese academy league, but was tearing up the LPL under FunPlus Phoenix’s banner before that in the Spring Split. Vitality did not field Bo yet in the 2022 LEC Summer Split because of his residence status and because he was working on his English.
