The final piece in the Fnatic Roster puzzle seems to have been found as they welcome Natthaphon "Masaros" Ouanphakdee as their fifth member. The Thai player leaves Motivate.Trust Gaming to take up the offlane duties for Fnatic. Masaros takes the place of iceiceice who left Fnatic in September 2020, wanting to play in a different region, eventually joining EG in North America.
Fnatic announced the addition of their offlaner, Masaros, through a tweet, labeling him as the ‘M-god.’
Fnatic had been on a spectacular winning streak from March 2020 to June 2020 and was dominating every team in the region in an era of online gaming. The team looked the most stable and all set to keep exerting its dominance before a couple of roster changes made their results go astray. 23savage was replaced by Raven and even more surprisingly, Jabz was removed to add eyyou to the squad. Further, owing to their disastrous performance at BTS Pro Series Season 3: Southeast Asia, Fnatic removed eyyou only after a week and iceiceice also left the squad. Jabz was later added back to the team and such weird roster changes left everybody stupefied.
Support player for Fnatic, Jabz, welcomed Masaros to the team with a special message.
Fnatic’s Final Roster:
As Masaros joined Fnatic, Motivate.Trust Gaming also released an official statement on Facebook. For the Thai organization, not only Masaros has left but their carry player Souliya "JaCkky" Khoomphetsavong has also departed from the roster.
This is likely to be a great jolt to the team as they had been outstanding in recent times. Motivate.Trust Gaming though looked rusty in the early months of their formation, their performances grew stronger by leaps and bounds as they won DOTA Summit 13 Online: SEA and BTS Pro Series 3: SEA by defeating teams like TNC Predator, BOOM Esports and Among Us. They were being hailed as the new top dogs of SEA until this roster change took place.
Motivate.Trust Gaming is now left down to three players and according to their post on Facebook, they are soon going to announce the replacements of both these outgoing players.
