According to a report by 1pv.fr, after the departure of Richard ‘Xizt’ Landström and Simon “twist” Eliasson, the Swedish esports organization are looking to get back the services of former stars Robin ‘flusha’ Rönnquist and Maikil ‘Golden’ Selim.
Both their targets formerly have been a part of Fnatic for an extensive period of time, and have played beside some of the current players like Krimz and JW. Flusha, at one point was considered as a cheater, but over the time with his amazing performance on LAN events, he was able to earn back the trust of the community. Both him and golden have shared a brief spell with North American organization Cloud9.
Golden was recently involved in professional CSGO, when he wore the Ninjas In Pyjama’s colours in the Berlin Major last week, and recent reports are hinting a move to their national rivals. If these signings go through, we would see a reminiscence of the roster that took home IEM Katowice 2018.
With the reported changes, fnatic would have the following roster:
- Jesper “JW” Wecksell
- Freddy “KRIMZ” Johansson
- Ludvig “Brollan” Brolin
- Robin “flusha” Rönnquist
- Maikil “Golden” Selim
Andreas “Samuelsson” Samuelsson who is the newly recruited coach for them after Fnatic part ways with Jumpy, is expected to take this line-up back to where it belongs, at the top of the CSGO mountain. Flusha is supposed to take Twist’s place in the squad, which means JW will get more time on the AWP and GOLDEN will over the leadership from Xizt which are hard shoes to fill as he is considered as one the greatest IGL who revolutionized this role.
