Fnatic part ways with DeMoN, Raven, and Eyyou

After a season of losses and failed qualifications, Fnatic has decided that it is time to change their one season old roster.

Announced today, Fnatic has decided to drop carry player Marc Polo 'Raven' Luis Fausto and support players, Jimmy 'DeMoN' Ho and Nico 'Eyyou' Barcelon, leaving Chai 'Mushi' Yee Fung and Khoo 'Ohaiyo' Chong Xin as the only members on the roster once again. The announcement of the roster change comes as no surprise as their decision to give a def-win to WG.Unity in the SEA Kappa Invitationals and their recent inactivity rose suspicion of an imminent roster change.

Statement by Eric 'reinnnn' Khor Wei Soon, Fnatic Manager

It is unfortunate that the current iteration of Fnatic Dota 2 did not work out as much as I would like it to. Before we move on, I would like to thank Jimmy, Nico and Polo for giving it their all in the few short months that we were together. While the team did not work out, we learned a lot from observing them and hope the best for them in the future. Mushi and Ohaiyo will continue to reform the team to make a comeback in the international scene

Consisting of members from the rosters of TI6 fourth place finisher, Fnatic, and TI6 7th-8th place finisher, TNC, Fnatic's roster after the post-TI shuffle looked promising. In their first tournaments after formation, Fnatic managed to achieve decent results, taking fourth place at the Mineski Pro Gaming League LAN in September, and finishing third in The Summit 6 SEA qualifiers. However, as the other teams improved, Fnatic were unable to keep pace and achieved much less than before, getting eliminated in the first round of the Boston Major SEA qualifiers playoffs, and taking last place at the recent ROG Masters.
