Fnatic, historically one of the best CS:GO teams, announced Tuesday that Twist will be replacing Draken for this season.

In addition, ScreaM, who came in as a stand-in for the team before ESL One New York, is staying with the team but, his future is unclear. "I'm going to keep stand-in with Fnatic," he tweeted. "Don’t know for how long. EPL starts tomorrow."

ScreaM joined as a replacement for Flusha after Fnatic’s disappointing finish at FACEIT London in September but the signing made it clear that it was a short-term arrangement.

As we await news of ScreaM’s future, the other move Fnatic made is set in stone.

Draken, a dominant player in 2016 and 2017, was not able to replicate past success when he joined Fnatic this year.

Writing on Twitter, he said that he was in a “bad period of time” when he joined Fnatic, but he is "excited about the future." as he looks to grow stronger as a player.

As such, Fnatic is replacing him with Twist, a longtime pro, who most recently played for Red Reserve.

Twist previously played for Fnatic when the team won the ESL Pro League Season 4 in 2016. Fnatic is hoping that bringing back a player from better times will help the organization regain its former dominance.
