We can finally stop talking about fnatic.

After this, obviously.

ALEX and mezii are the lucky couple to be paired up with the fnatic core - a phrase which means 'Brollan, KRiMZ and Jackinho', bizarrely. We assume the English and the Swedes can bond over their love of destroying otherwise good food.

The real thing you want to know is: Will this team actually be any good? And, well... we have our doubts.

ALEX was a very good IGL on Vitality, but let's be fair, with ZywOo, that job isn't particularly difficult. He doesn't have a ZywOo figure any more, and his time on C9, while short, wasn't exactly outstanding. mezii has been very good on Endpoint, but we've seen very little of him at the top level.

Combine that with Jackinho, a player who is yet to show himself as more than a stop gap, and we're struggling to see the ceiling for this team really being that high.

There's also some murmurs that KRiMZ and Brollan mightn't be too happy with the organisation, so they might be completely rebuilding in the near future - so we expect woxic, floppy and es3tag to rock up and complete the rebuilding of the Colossus.

This leaves MSL to announce his line-up next Sunday, supposedly. We'd convinced ourselves he was the guy fnatic needed, but we hadn't convinced them.

fnatic's new lineup is:

  • 🇬🇧 ALEX (IGL)
  • 🇬🇧 mezii
  • 🇸🇪 KRIMZ
  • 🇸🇪 Brollan
  • 🇸🇪 Jackinho
