Fnatic has decided to bench one of their most iconic members of their CS:GO lineup Robin "flusha" Ronnquist, as the Swedish lineup looks to undergo a few changes before they start competing in the 2021 season. This is the third time that the 27-year-old Swede has parted ways with the organization, following their turbulent run last year where they managed to win just one tournament - ESL Pro League Season 11: Europe.
Fnatic Bench Flusha
Flusha is one of the most recognizable CS:GO players to have ever played for Fnatic. In total the Swede has played with the organization for well more than six years across three different phases. The rifler has already shown interest in continuing competing in CS:GO as he states that “If any org is looking for an interesting project don’t hesitate to contact me.”
It will be interesting to see if the reports of him along with Timothy "autimatic" Ta and Miikka "suNny" Kemppi coming together as a trio actually turn out to be true or not. This now seems to be a legit possibility as all three players are currently on a transfer list with their respective organizations, the only unknown factor is under whose banner will this team take shape.
Fnatic after a rough 2020 season is looking to make a few changes with a report from DBLTAP stating that, Flusha would most likely be replaced by the 21-year-old Swedish AWPer Jack "Jackinho" Strom Mattson.
The 15-month stint that Flusha had with Fnatic started off on a winning high as the team went on to win DreamHack Masters Malmo 2019. This was followed by a series of second place finishes which marked them as a team to watch out for in 2020. Fnatic once again started off with a win at ESL Pro League Season 11: Europe, but it was all downhill from this point on which has forced the organization to start afresh.
The upcoming season of competitive CS:GO is going to be exciting with some new teams in the mix and the old ones implementing small changes to find success. With a lot of new teams spinning up in Europe, the upcoming online tournaments are going to be stacked.
