FNS returns on eUnited

MIRAA
October 23rd, 2018 21:00

eUnited have completed the signing of former CLG and Cloud9 in-game leader Pujan "FNS" Mehta, the North American organisation have announced.

The Canadian tactician will be replacing Brandon "Ace" Winn on the roster and taking over the in-game leadership duties from Skyler "Relyks" Weaver, who makes the transition to primary AWPer on the team.

With FNS' addition, eUnited hope to improve their tactical flexibility, after their most recent LAN outings ended in disappointment. The North American side finished 7th-8th at DreamHack Open Montreal and in third place at the four-team MSI MGA Finals.

FNS joins eUnited as IGL

FNS, who filled in for the team on Monday in the ECS league, has been without a team since July, when he was released by Cloud9 after just three months with the organisation.

During his time leading Cloud9, the ELEAGUE Major Boston champions reached the playoffs at DreamHack Masters Marseille but crashed out in the groups at IEM Sydney and at the offline finals of ESL Pro League Season 7 and ECS Season 5.

The Canadian player was full of praise for his new teammates and organisation, and spoke of his intention to guide the squad to the top.

"Not competing for the past two-three months has been difficult but refreshing in a sense," he told HLTV.org. "It gave me time to reflect on everything that went wrong with C9, but I am happy they found a lineup they are confident in.

"As for me, I couldn't be more motivated up to get back in the server and play with this group of talented players. This game has been my life for the past four years, and I can't wait to show everyone what this team is capable of.

"I have the complete respect of every player/coach on this team and so far, the organization has shown me nothing but love. That's all any player can ask for, and I am grateful for this opportunity.

"For all the people who have consistently supported me, whether that be family, friends, fans, ex-teammates, whoever, I really do appreciate it. Over the last couple of months, I've received tons of positive messages, and I'm genuinely thankful for that."

FNS will make his first LAN appearance for eUnited early next month, at IEM Chicago, kicking off November 6. Two weeks later, the team will compete at DreamHack Open Atlanta, for which they qualified after beating Spacestation in the grand final of the closed qualifier.

With these changes, eUnited now have:

United States Skyler "Relyks" Weaver
United States Will "dazzLe" Loafman
United States Michael "dapr" Gulino
Canada Kaleb "moose" Jayne
Canada Pujan "FNS" Mehta

You dont know why nifty, their best player, is on the team? And semphis who is currently -136 with a .59 rating in pro league "still has it"? You need a reality check

Okay fair enough they play similar roles but nifty has still been their best player with just a rifle. Still dont see how you can say that from these performances semphis "still has it" you seem to be either very misinformed or a semphis fanboy.
2018-10-23 21:22
Wtf no I just popped in a few of their streams and during the games when I watched semphis was holding his own. Tf u mean I'm a fanboy k just did hes ok wtf ur taking this shit too far. I'm not dissing anyone or saying someone is better than the other

K guess you're saying nothing then cause it seemed like you were saying semphis was doing well. No hes not "okay" hes by far the worst performing player in the league and it's not like the team has good teamplay, t-sides, or tactics so I dont see how you can assess him as anything but poor right now. It's also pretty clear you havent seen any of their pro league results.

Dont know how to feel about this. FNS is a good add, but I would have rather eUnited waited to later down the road to figure out who really is the problem. I dont think any individual players showed problems, it was the team itself and how it handled anti ecos that was the problem. But then again an ingame leader could help fix that problem. I'm mixed
2018-10-23 21:05
Well they benched ace so if they have problems with other players they can swap and bring him back etc

Yeah i'm mixed, I think FNS was a good add this roster change depends on Relyks a lot and to see if he is capable of main AWPing, I think Relyks on the rifle and not igl could have been the star of this team along side Moose of course, I think eUnited should have been something like FNS Relyks Moose Dapr Nifty / Jdm64
2018-10-23 21:14
I was like really considering eunited before this move been thinking real hard that maybe an NA team would be good for me because i have had a real favorite team sincr vp before taz kick. I was saying it to myself once i saw the sub for moose. That if this was real it probably killed any and all intention i had for considering the roster/team I will have to see if fns magically actually got good. But if not I cant root for 4 + bot.
