Fnatic have officially signed French top laner Adam ‘Adam’ Maanane for their LEC Summer 2021 lineup, as speculation on Gabriël ‘Bwipo’ Rau position on the team mounts.


  • Adam, previously ‘Ricadam,’ signs to Fnatic.
  • Adam was a star in Karmine Corp’s EM 2021 Spring championship run.
  • Bwipo switches to Fnatic’s jungle position.

Fnatic signs Adam in the top lane

Fnatic are revamping their top lane with 19-year-old Adam. The young Frenchman is coming off a dominant season with Karmine Corp in the European minor circuits.

Previously it was reported Fnatic agreed to buyout the rising talent for roughly $291,800 to be the new starter on the legendary EU org.

Adam must have impressed the orange-and-black coming off his performances to capture 1st in the LFL 2021 Spring split, a championship in the LFL Spring playoffs, and a broader win after coming in 1st at the European Masters Spring Main Event.

But the young buck will have massive shoes to fill. Adam is expected to slot in for Bwipo, Fnatic’s top laner for the last three years.

What is next for Bwipo?

Bwipo will be transitioning into the jungle position for Fnatic, as the org makes room for their new top lane signing.

Fnatic announced Bwipo’s official role change, after weeks of rumors and speculation hinted at the inevitable swap.

Bwipo will now play in between lanes for Fnatic, while previous jungler Oskar ‘Selfmade’ Boderek has been linked to a transfer away from the team.

Fnatic announced the departure of Selfmade after the roster shuffle left the team largely intact but with two new faces in the top and jungle.
