Universe to replace Ohaiyo in Fnatic for upcoming roster lock
Last month Evil Geniuses made the shocking announcement that the organization had parted ways with UNiVeRse, adding Rasmus ‘MiSeRy’ Filipsen to the lineup and switching Sumail ‘SumaiL’ Hassan into the offlane. Since then the veteran star had been laying low and remained a free agent.
Ohaiyo's departure is somewhat of a surprise for many fans as the offlaner had been with the organization for almost three years - since 2015 with Fnatic returned to Dota 2.

This is the second change in lineup that team has made since forming after TI7. Early in November, following a rough start in the Dota Pro Circuit, Fnatic announced a few changes in within their team benching Steve 'Xcalibur' Ye and welcoming 10K MMR player Abed 'Abed' Yusop. The team has enjoyed improved results - qualifying for Dota Summit 8 with 2nd place main event finish, DreamLeague Season 8 Major resulting in 7-8th place overall finish and just yesterday qualifed for ESL One Katowice Major.
Fnatic is ranked at 11 and already has 202.5 total points in the ProCircuit. Each player has 67.5 points each but bringing on board UNiVeRse with his 255 points will bring the team up, edging close to the top 8 positions with a total of 390 points, putting them ahead of Na'Vi who has 315 points in 9th place.
