fnatic complete twist signing; draken benched

fnatic have announced that they have completed the signing of Simon "⁠twist⁠" Eliasson from Red Reserve.

The 23-year-old will step into the shoes of William "⁠draken⁠" Sundin, who has been moved to an inactive position less than four months after being recruited from NiP.

twist returns to fnatic

twist, who had been transfer listed by Red Reserve last month, returns to fnatic after enjoying a six-month spell with the team between August 2016 and February 2017, during which he most notably helped the squad to a semi-final run at ELEAGUE Major Atlanta.

“I’m thrilled to be back at Fnatic, an organisation I have always looked up to since I started following the professional scene," twist told fnatic's website.

"I’m happy to team up with some of the best Swedish players in the scene and I’m confident we are going to do great things.

"I will not take this chance for granted. Thank you to those who have always believed in me."

This is the second roster change for fnatic in the aftermath of a New Legends Stage exit at the FACEIT Major - the first time that the Swedish side could not reach the playoffs of a Major.

Robin "⁠flusha⁠" Rönnquist was moved to a backup position and eventually transferred to Cloud9, with Adil "⁠ScreaM⁠" Benrlitom acting as a stand-in for the team at ESL One New York, where the Swedes finished bottom of Group A following defeats to mousesports and Natus Vincere.

fnatic will play their first match in the ESL Pro League, against Heroic, with ScreaM as their fifth player, though the Belgian's current status on the team remains unclear.

During his time on fnatic's roster, draken averaged a 0.94 rating on LAN, and the organisation admits that the player's "untapped potential might not have been met".

"I want to thank Fnatic for my short time here and I wish the players good luck," draken added.

"Although this was not the best fit for me in terms of timing, I am excited to try new things and look forward to whatever my future brings me."

fnatic will begin their ESL Pro League Season 8 adventure with:

Sweden Jesper "⁠JW⁠" Wecksell
Sweden Freddy "⁠KRIMZ⁠" Johansson
Sweden Richard "⁠Xizt⁠" Landström
Sweden Simon "⁠twist⁠" Eliasson
Belgium Adil "⁠ScreaM⁠" Benrlitom (stand-in)

Sweden William "⁠draken⁠" Sundin (benched)

not that good,imo xizt have more experience
2018-10-02 19:22
he's had more experience than he deserves at this point
2018-10-02 19:29
idk if hampus is the answer, but anything besides xizt is worth a try to me...xizt is like the FNS of EU, he can do really good on the right team with right ppl but he isn't an igl that can just work anywhere and imo xizt isnt best for fnatic
2018-10-02 20:03
Hampus seems pretty good. He's gottens some respectable results with mediocre teams. Deserves a chance.
2018-10-02 22:30
Yea, he has alot of experience of being a shit IGL and seems to continue on that path...
2018-10-02 19:43
100% agree bro,thoes two are new Swedish talents
2018-10-02 17:06
-Xizt +Golden But not til next major cause they want to hold On to challenger stage spot. Which requires 3 of the players from the previous lineup
2018-10-02 17:18
It would be really nice, but they kicked golden year ago, so why would they want him now? Also i would keep draken and give - JW . Draken main awper, twist secondary.
2018-10-02 20:43
Year? It was a few monthes ago lol.
2018-10-02 22:57
Yeah it was in june so not long ago
2018-10-04 12:55
Xizt’s style of IGLing is old and dated. It doesnt work anymore. He needs to reinvent his Calling style or he needs to leave. He cant lead with this loose style of CSGO. That age of csgo has passed. Golden imo is the only true tactical swedish igl.
2018-10-03 01:07
Yes i agree with Golden, imo he is a great igl. But they won a great tournament and kick him afterwards, so i dont think so they will ihre him again. Also -karrigan +golden would be really nice

Give ScreaM some more time, he will definitely do better with a really great IGL. On the other Hand, Xizt should instead become A Coach or something, and scan for newer, and slightly more humble talent in Sweden. Maybe even a new Super Swede Team.
2018-10-03 10:55
They need golden again ;)
2018-10-03 07:07
nope they need one more good fragger
2018-10-03 13:18
Take back flusha?
2018-10-03 13:53
yes but only olof or someone from nip could fill that role
2018-10-03 13:54
U mean brollan or Rez?
2018-10-03 13:57
brollan inexperienced and a bit overrated for not achieving anythign notable rez inconsistent but good
2018-10-04 13:13
In fnatic brollan needn't experience, because other have so much. Like electronic in Navi
2018-10-04 13:16

2018-10-02 16:39
Why the fuck is jw still in the team is the real question
2018-10-02 16:42
jw is good , just not the carry. he needs someone to be the real focus of the team , like olof was , or simple in navi , so he can focus on his lurking style
2018-10-02 18:07
jw good but not best (jw best)
2018-10-03 01:29
+1 jw is a bot, 0 impact and can't carry.
2018-10-02 18:28
exactly... finally someone with a brain. JW been trash for a long time now and they let this guy play a "hybrid" role that only 3 or 4 players are good enough to play.
2018-10-04 09:34
No shit. Hard to predict
2018-10-02 16:43
And that was the last tier 3+ team Draken will ever play for.

2018-10-02 18:23
sixer missing shots pick one.
2018-10-02 18:27
True, he never misses. But not because he always hits, but because he is too slow to even push the button and he is dead already.
2018-10-02 20:45
Skadoodle is fucking awful and has already peaked in CS, at least draken still has some potential left in him
2018-10-02 16:47
Draken is worse that ska, but they are both bad
2018-10-02 16:53
Have we been watching a different game? Draken was the best player in NiP at some points last year, whereas apart from a couple of spikes skadoodle has been awful since early 2017.
2018-10-02 17:00
In nip when he first joined he was alright, he was only the best player when everyone on that team were doing shit
2018-10-02 17:09
draken is one of the best in their team, how can he be worse than JW atm?
2018-10-02 20:46
wasnt talking about fnatic, but jw is better than draken at awping and rifling
2018-10-02 20:46
What are you talking about. Just go on hltv.com and search for draken and then search for JW and lastly compare.
2018-10-02 20:50
on paper maybe not, but performance wise jw does better, and you brough up fnatic when we were talking about nip
2018-10-02 20:51
JW is sneaky, but that wont win you round. And a lot of rounds he can lost just because of that. He might be smarter, but he is not better atm. Yes you two were talking about NIP, NIP back in the days, which doesnt matter nowdays anyway. We have to discuss the current form of the player not year or more ago. If they go -JW and add twist, that would be the best choice imo. draken primary awp twist secondary, he is great hybrid, he should stay that way the same as i think simple would be a better player if he had played secondary awp role and not primary.
2018-10-02 20:57
Current form of players? Currently even GTR is betetr than draken. Just facts.

ikr Not a fan of him at all but feel really sorry for him
2018-10-02 16:04
Im not a fan either but its a bit sad on his behalf. Visiting the 2 biggest teams in the country and leave both just within a cpl of months. Surely it will be hard to get another team after that. Especially in sweden . T3 inc.
2018-10-02 16:06
Deserved, he is trash. Twist is a much better player to be honest.
2018-10-02 16:12
Im not sure at all. Twist has had multiple shots on joining both nip and Fnatic but turned them down for mix teams. Im not so convinced adding a player that seemingly is not very interrested from the beginning is such a good idea.
2018-10-02 16:18
except for the one time where he literally carried fnatic to the semis of a major
2018-10-02 16:33
+1 , and that fnatic had krimz, olof , and dennis in the team
2018-10-02 18:08
Also, twist hardly plays officials against top tier so im not that convinced he is "the man"
2018-10-02 16:19
Well I don’t think twist will make them miles better or anything like that, but them adding draken and dropping golden for xizt and having JW awp are all ridiculous decisions. I don’t understand how they think. They were really good early on in 2018 but they fucked their selves over. I also don’t ger how draken was recruited by both NiP and fnatic when he’s literal trash. Probably the worst “top tier” pro awper out there.
2018-10-02 16:24
Draken would be better if he had better decision making and didn't miss the easy shots
2018-10-02 16:31

So he would be better awper if... he had all the qualities awper needs and he lacks? Cool.
2018-10-02 18:19
NiP recruited him because they needed a primary AWPer and he showed potential on Epsilon, you can’t dispute that. Fnatic though knew what they were getting.
2018-10-02 16:40
fnatic have won enough money blatantly cheating, now just taking salary and not giving a fuck
2018-10-02 16:54

2018-10-02 17:24
so do i, lets wish together <3
2018-10-02 17:25
Twist has played on Fnatic before and also played with olof and dennis. He's good, I don't know what you mean by he's not top level material he made it to semifinals in ELEAGUE 2017, semis in dh las vegas and quarters at New York 2016 all with above 1.05 rating.
2018-10-02 16:30
That was ages ago. Hardly relevant today.
2018-10-02 16:33
Lol ok. He's still averaged a 1.1+ rating since. Tell me when he refused to join fnatic/nip. The only time I can think of is when NIP wanted to replace friberg/pyth. Other than that fnatic never had him as first choice to replace somebody.
2018-10-02 16:36
They went for him when allu left as well
2018-10-02 16:41
He had a few offers from NIP but that was when they were in such a huge slump so I don't blame him for not wanting to join a team that couldn't win against tier 3-4 teams when he was already in a team that was doing better at the time. (Godsent obv)
2018-10-02 16:44
When was godsent ever better than nip? Godsents absolute best was at dh masters malmo, where they got knocked out by nip. Even in their slumps, nip was still better and competing at bigger events than godsent.
2018-10-02 17:50
Exactly. Basicly that was the best performance and event they ever had.
2018-10-02 18:15
Also, I'm not saying it wont work just that I'm not that convinced.

FINALLY ...

They now needs to find a permanent 5th for them
2018-10-02 16:08
Maybe if FaZe collapses (Guardian retires, Karrigan kicked, Rain bad form etc) then Olof could rejoin?

2018-10-02 16:22
why didnt they just do that right after the major? it was a clear path to get twist for draken and compete for top 5 range, flusha didnt need to go. ScreaM is great but 4 swedes talking english for 1 player is just weird. But if all 4 are up for it, its still a great replacement.

Yeah for sure. Nip has looked good ever since lekro took over as igl, he was a godsent :D
2018-10-02 17:00
Yeah. :) Historically Scandinavia has always been the shining stars of Counter-Strike, only Russian Federation, Poland and France really giving them any trouble. America hardly ever had any say into 1.6 or CS:GO until Cloud 9 notably won the CS:GO Major by the skin of their teeth. Now Team Liquid is the best NA team we've seen. Off on a tangent, of course-- my apologies. Here is hoping for fnatic and Sweden as a whole to be on top of the scene once again. ^^ Have a good day. :) Always a pleasure, shrimpony. :D

This is what we are going to do boys. Let's cut Xizt already. +Karrigan (when he get's benched from FaZe) and +Refrezh Karrigan, Refrezh, Twist, JW and Krimz. I'd be down for that. Or change Refrezh for Brollan. Which ever. Point is, they need some young hungry player to give life into the team. Twist is not exactly the definition of "hungry"

I thought twist was supposed to replace ScreaM but I'm glad he's still playing for them. I really hope Adil reaches his potential in fnatic and stays for a while. Much better than watching him stream de_dust2 in matchmaking while kids type VAC in twitch chat.
2018-10-02 17:27
i think they will test out scream in the online games , if he does good then they will go international , if he doesnt then they will probably get brollan
2018-10-02 18:13
Oh yeah, well done fnatic, good job! Just kick draken and save yourself
2018-10-02 17:29
Still lack a good IGL. And ScreaM being still in the team is so weird, he makes them communicate in English, however well they know it - it's still not their main language. Btw say hello all those who said ScreaM would join G2. Ocelote is also a weirdo that said the process of fixing G2 began, where and what is it?..

You don't say "one day" when you mean it's happening. Don't be a fool, I do want ScreaM to play in a good team again, he just doesn't have his place in current G2, even if they get rid of SmithZz - 3 freedom-loving players in an Ex6TenZ team makes 0 sense, you should have only 1-2 to be called a tactical team, and having 3 already puts you in the same field with FaZe that can't have any real tactic simply because they have too many stars. But it's too hard for you to understand because you only look at nicknames. If you recall any of previous Ex6TenZ teams, they had only 2 freedom-loving players (shox & ScreaM in 2013 and then in 2015) and 2 soldiers (NBK & SmithZz in 2013, RpK & SmithZz in 2015).
2018-10-03 07:42

2018-10-02 17:31

2018-10-02 17:35

2018-10-02 17:41

2018-10-02 18:10
+ pronax - xizt
2018-10-02 17:41
Yea wud be gr8 anyone is netter than xizt
2018-10-02 18:54
Hopefully Xizt is next, the most useless pro player in the last 3-4 years after friberg.
2018-10-02 17:45
Obviously fnatic kept signing nip trash good they kicked draken Hopefully soon xizt
2018-10-02 18:54
-GeT_RiGhT +draken NIP repeats history 87-0 in 2019 #markmywords

welcome to cis minor
2018-10-02 17:57
Nice Fnatic is good again.
2018-10-02 18:03
They need one more guy
2018-10-02 18:53
Finally indeed, now add Brollan to this lineup and get to war damn it!!
2018-10-02 18:04
ScreaM <3
2018-10-02 18:04
+disco doplan pls
2018-10-02 18:06
Hell yes. Twist is a definite upgrade, much less streaky and doesn't whiff those easy shots as often. Now they need to replace Xizt but they probably can't get Lekro or Golden. Best bet is to get Karrigan since he's probably leaving FaZe with Niko calling. They could also get MSL but I think Karrigan's style might suit them better.
2018-10-02 18:07
im willing to give xizt another shot. i think he can turn things around , even tho i think he is braindead , he definitely has some experience
2018-10-02 18:10
but he is braindead so nope
2018-10-02 19:01
I'm sure they will keep him on for a bit longer since they all seem to like him. In my opinion if he could pick/ban maps better and have a more explosive T-side he could work out for them but I dunno.
2018-10-02 20:38
finally JESUS...
2018-10-02 18:15
this lineup has 3 sick players that can destroy anyone on a good day (krimz, twist and scream) best thing now is to kick xizt keep scream and get an at least decent igl that can frag, unlike xizt
2018-10-02 18:21
still suprbot xizt
2018-10-02 18:22
right decision. jw enough for awper role.
2018-10-02 18:23
- JW + Disco Doplan.
2018-10-02 18:29
I hope benching their best player works out well for them
2018-10-02 18:36
LUL? krimz is still on active lineup
2018-10-04 13:17
Draken > krimz
2018-10-09 18:43
0/8

Olof would fit great instead of Scream
2018-10-02 19:05
Twist will surely be a better player and fit more but lets not forget that draken actually had way better stats before fnatic and was almost a victim of the team fall, lets not put all the blame on him
2018-10-02 19:05

Flusha, forest, olofm, Dennis or brollan instead of stand in scream and then ggwp all Other teams fnatic top 1 forever.
2018-10-04 11:58
most likely will be brollan, and he is the best option imo, talented player will a lot of grow potential
2018-10-09 18:45
