Fnatic has made another roster change in the 2021 DPC Season by moving midlaner, Kam "Moon" Boon Seng, to the team’s inactive roster. The organization announced via its social media handles that Moon was allowed to explore new opportunities because of this decision, which means the Malaysian midlaner will no longer be playing with the team. The roster change follows Fnatic's failures to directly qualify for TI10 following disappointing performances at the Singapore Major and second DPC season. The team now has approximately one month to find Moon’s replacement in time for the TI10 SEA qualifiers that begin on June 30, 2021.

Fnatic moves Moon to its inactive roster
Fans had been questioning Moon's recent underwhelming performances because he did not appear to be living up to his potential. Though the teams are at a very sensitive time on the road to TI, Fnatic has now made the tough decision to part ways with him.
Fnatic’s active Dota 2 roster now is:
- Marc Polo Luis "Raven" Fausto
- Ng "ChYuan" Kee Chyuan
- Anucha "Jabz" Jirawong
- Djardel Jicko B. "DJ" Mampusti
After being a part of Fnatic from September 2019, Moon had established himself as one of the team's staple players. Though the team had a couple of underwhelming tournaments in the form of MDL Chengdu Major and DreamLeague Season 13 after Moon’s arrival, they had bounced back in the online Dota 2 season to dominate SEA and win five tournaments on the trot.
Fnatic will be preparing for the upcoming TI10 SEA qualifiers which will be held from June 30 - July 3, 2021. The qualifiers are going to be highly competitive with teams like OB.Neon, BOOM Esports, and Motivate.Trust Gaming already confirmed. If TNC Predator, Execration, and even T1 fail to reach their desired results at the WePlay AniMajor, they may join the TI10 qualifiers and make the competition even more fierce.
Fnatic is yet to announce its new midlaner. As far as Moon is concerned, his chances of playing at TI10 seem even slimmer with this transfer since he does not have a lot of time to find a new team.
