As one of the world’s top teams at eSports, Fnatic has performed some really big changes at its CS:GO team. Yesterday evening, Fnatic announced that Freddy “KRIMZ” Johansson, Jesper “JW” Wecksell and Robin “flusha” Rönnquist have left the team to join the Swedish CS:GO team of GODSEND. At GODSEND the trio will be reunited with their former team mate and Fnatic team captain Markus “pronax” Wallsten.
Fnatic exchanges their former 3 team member with the GODSENT players Simon “twist” Eliasson and Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson as part of the executing process. The line-up will be completed by John “wenton” Eriksson, who was already a sub for Fnatic earlier this year since Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer was injured.
Fnatic released a press statement indicating that small issues inside the team turned into big issues which weeded their way into fundamental team dynamics and couldn’t be solved within the Fnatic team.
“The new chapter we are starting together with two very good friends to all of us, players we have played with before and players we are confident we will build a new legacy together with,” said JW in the release. “I hope the fans understand us and support us in our decision and can keep cheering for both teams in future clashes. In my heart I will still always be a Fnatic.”
This situation of a dramatic change out of nowhere has happened kind of back in 2010, where the at this moment most successful team of Fnatic was reshuffled and “cArn”, “den”, “f0rest” and “getright” left Fnatic over similar concerns and founding the CS:GO roster of NiP.
