With the post season roster shuffle in full effect major League of Legends teams are starting to finalise their rosters for 2017. Fnatic has supposedly done just that by signing two players from rivals Origen.
According to ESPN’s Jacob Wolf the new Fnatic roster includes Paul "sOAZ" Boyer, Maurice "Amazing" Stückenschneider, Rasmus "Caps" Winther, Jesse "Jesiz" Le and Martin "Rekkles" Larsson. This line up will supposedly be announced at the Fnatic pop up store in London on Thursday evening.
Of the four new additions only two played in the LCS last split. Both sOAZ and Amazing were on the Origen roster that had to fight for survival in the promotion tournament, but did reach the semi finals of Worlds in 2015. Caps was playing with Dark Passage last season, while Jesiz was the assistant coach for Immortals over in the NA LCS. Of course Rekkles was in the Fnatic squad for all of 2016.
Hopefully this will mean a return to form for Fnatic who have had a less than successful year. After winning both EU LCS splits and making it to the semi finals at worlds in 2015 they failed to even make it to worlds this year, finishing mid table in both splits.
