Where Do Fnatic Go From Here?
Fnatic acquired the PUBG Mobile roster for Xspark in late 2019. The team has several podium finishes under their belt including in PUBG Mobile All-Stars India 2019 and PUBG Mobile India Series 2020. Ronak, another star player of the team moved to Oxygen Esports last month and now with Scout’s departure, Fnatic faces yet another great loss.
