The European organization through an official press release, has revealed that veteran of Swedish Counter-Strike, flusha has been benched. Surprisingly, it is Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom who has occupied flusha’s place on fnatic squad. The revamped line-up will make its first appearance against mousesports in New York on September 26.

FACEIT London Major was the first of its kind where fnatic couldn’t advance to the Legends Stage and flusha has been a little sloppy after the arrival of Xizt and Draken. This move also ends the long-lasting JW-Flusha-KRiMZ trio.

We have not taken this decision with a light heart. Recent results, culminating in our failure to reach Legend Status for the first time during the Major in London this month, have led us to begin work towards a revised team culture within Fnatic and thus moving towards instilling a new sense of stability in the team. We hope to establishing Fnatic as the world-renowned name in Counter-Strike that we have seen before and towards which we believe we should always be striving.

Adil, on the other hand, will be returning back to professional Counter-Strike after a short break of about two months. He has been vigorously streaming after the European Minor. The 24 year old has quite a lot of experience under his belt and he is reckoned for his raw firepower.
