Fnatic, one of the most storied CS:GO teams in the world, has made a major roster move after a disappointing finish in the London FACEIT Major.
In preparation for ESL One New York, the organization has moved Robin “flusha” Rönnquist to substitute and brought in Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom as his replacement.
Both players are highly respected for their success and this represents a huge roster shift for the organization, with only days to prepare for ESL One.
Flusha has had a long history of success with Fnatic. The Swede has been with the organization since 2013 and was a key member of their dominant year in 2015. He has won three Majors with Fnatic and a host of other premier tournaments.
His replacement, fan favorite ScreaM, is a champion in his own right. Often known as “One-tap God,” ScreaM most recently won the Dreamhack Atlanta Open in 2017 while competing for Team EnvyUs. That team disbanded in June and ScreaM has been a coveted free agent, until now.
In the official press release, Fnatic said ScreaM is coming in on a “short-term basis.” It is unclear what that means for the future of Flusha on the squad, but it unlikely a player of his caliber is happy being a substitute for long.
You will be able to catch the new roster in action at ESL One New York from September 26th to 30th. While Fnatic did say there might be more changes to the team in the coming months, here’s the Fnatic roster as it stands right now:
