The Southeast Asian organization is making some big changes to its lineup heading into the new Pro Circuit season
Fnatic has revealed its new roster for the upcoming 2019-2020 Pro Circuit campaign, with the organization set to make some significant alterations to its lineup following a 13th-16th place finish at TI9. The organization had previously lost Support and Captain Kim “DuBu” Doo-young to free agency at the end of August, and it appears that the team will be parting ways with another of its members as Midlaner Abed “Abed” Azel Yusop has left the roster. To fill the gaps in the squad’s lineup, Fnatic has revealed the addition of Carry Nuengnara “23savage” Teeramahanon, and Midlaner Kam “Moon” Boon Seng. As part of this roster changes, Anucha “Jabz” Jirawong will be returning to the Support position for Fnatic, and will take up the captaincy of the squad as well.
23savage has not been a part of the professional scene for very long, with the Thai Carry only having come to prominence within the last year or so. However, his performance across that relatively short span of time has certainly been impressive, with 23savage attracting a fair bit of attention with his strong play within the Southeast Asian region. Perhaps his biggest bit of notoriety came just a few months ago, when he was picked up by Team Jinesbrus for the TI9 Southeast Asia Qualifier and very nearly helped the squad earn a place in Shanghai in a 2-3 loss to Mineski in the Grand Finals of the qualifier. While the young Carry has yet to accrue much in the way of international experience, his incredible skill level at just 17 years of age makes him a valuable piece for Fnatic moving forward.
As for the second addition to the roster, Moon is a much more known name within the Southeast Asian region. After spending the last 2 years with the Mineski organization, the Midlaner brings an intense level of international and regional experience to the new Fnatic roster. Moon has attended back to back iterations of TI, along with 10 Majors and 7 Minors, and was a member of the Mineski squad that earned the SEA region’s first and only Major Championship title at DAC 2018. Between Moon’s incredible skill and experience, and the considerable potential that 23savage has shown so far in his career, this new-look Fnatic lineup stands to carry on the organization’s history of success within the Southeast Asian region in this upcoming Pro Circuit season.
