Fnatic Completes CS:GO Roster Revamp With Signing of FASHR
Finally, the roster revamp completes!
The European roster of Fnatic has finally come together with the signing of Dion "FASHR" Derksen, the final player to join the team and complete its lineup more than two months after the last singing.
In July, Fantic had welcomed the Danish duo of Denmark Nico "nicoodoz" Tamjidi and Fredrik "roeJ" Jørgensen, to its team. Now, a 26-year-old rifler from the Netherlands has joined them as 'the final piece of the puzzle'.
Fnatic seems to have put in a lot of thought before going ahead with FASHR, his aggressive playstyle grabbing their attention, something that has proven to be a perfect fit in the current team dynamic.
Fnatic finally completes its CS:GO roster revamp with the signing of FASHR
After going through a troubled phase last season, which consisted of poor results and a huge number of roster shuffles, Fnatic entered the current competitive circuit with a fresh mindset but sadly its slump continued.
Consistently playing with temporary players, Fnatic had to get a grip around its situation and took a decision to undergo a proper revamp, holding back Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson and William "mezii" Merriman while bidding farewell to rest of the players.
The rebuild started and FASHR was brought on board as the final player ahead of the second half of the season, as the organization looks to redeem a part of its lost confidence and success.
Having previously played for teams like Endpoint, Budapest Five, Lyngby Vikings, ECSTATIC, among others, FASHR already has plenty of useful experience under his belt and boasts an overall HLTV rating of 1.19 this year so far.
With an Impact Rating of 1.25, the Dutch has proven himself to have the potential of shining on the big stage, as he looks to break into the international scene with this fresh-looking Fnatic roster.
“I feel honoured and humbled to be wearing the iconic Black and Orange. I'm confident that together with my new teammates we are able to achieve great things. We're aiming to build a new, lasting dynasty with this team,” said FASHR upon being picked up by Fnatic.
With the team rebuild complete, Fnatic has taken a decision to continue ahead with Mezii as the captain for the side. The team is set to debut at the IEM Rio Major Qualifiers scheduled to start from 15th August onwards, before which it will be holding a bootcamp at the London HQ of the organization.
Fnatic will also be competing at the ESL Pro League Season 16 towards the end of this month. It will be interesting to see how this revamped Fnatic goes on to perform from here on out.
