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
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.
