Xizt, twist benched as fnatic look to enter "new phase"

fnatic have announced that they have moved Richard "⁠Xizt⁠" Landström and Simon "⁠twist⁠" Eliasson to the bench with immediate effect.

The news follows a series of disappointing results that culminated with the Swedish team failing to reach a Major for the first time in the history of the competition after finishing in fourth place at the recent Europe Minor.

Xizt and twist no longer in the starting line-up

In the official announcement, fnatic described this as "our lowest point in a long history of Counter-Strike" and admitted that "management and players agree that the current situation is unacceptable of the standards we set for ourselves and of the black and orange in general".

"We will now be working doubly hard to realign and regain our rightful spot at the pinnacle of professional gameplay," fnatic added.

"We will move into a new phase, and will look at all aspects of our Counter-Strike team."

HLTV.org knows that fnatic are willing to explore all avenues at this stage, including revamping their backroom staff and moving to an international roster after sticking to an all-Swedish team for the last six years.

Both Xizt and twist were in their second stint with fnatic. After putting together the current roster, in October 2018, fnatic briefly enjoyed an upswing in their form and ended the year on a positive note by reaching the semi-finals at IEM Chicago and winning the PLG Grand Slam.

Disappointment ensued as fnatic surprisingly finished in fourth place at the WESG Finals after losing to AGO in the semi-finals, but the team quickly bounced back and placed second at StarSeries i-League Season 7 and IEM Sydney.

Xizt and twist won the PLG Grand Slam with the team

The respite would not last, though, as the Swedes would finish top 12 at their next three Big Events - DreamHack Masters Dallas, the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals and ESL One Cologne - before collapsing at the Minor, where they lost to mousesports and CR4ZY in the playoffs.

"I want to thank Simon and Richard for everything we have achieved together," Fnatic CS:GO director Andreas "⁠Samuelsson⁠" Samuelsson said in a statement. "I wish Simon and Richard nothing but the best in the future!

"We had a great time together outside the server and showed good potential in Shanghai and Sydney. It’s a great shame we never found any consistency nor the right chemistry in-game to achieve our goals.

"Given the magnitude of failing to qualify for a Major for the first time in Fnatic’s history, a change was indeed necessary. Now, sadly without Simon and Richard, we must build a strong, consistent line-up for the future and bring Fnatic back to the very top."

fnatic will make their next LAN appearance at DreamHack Masters Malmö, scheduled for October 1-6, with new players to join the squad "before then", according to the UK-based organisation. As for Xizt and twist, their future is now far from certain, with the Swedish tactician admitting that this was a wake-up call for him.

"I think being on the bench will be beneficial for Fnatic, but will also have a positive effect on me in the long run," Xizt said. "I know I haven't been playing well lately, and certainly far from the level where I want to be myself.

"I don't have any excuses for my bad performances, I only see this as a time for me to work even harder, to keep my head up and take this time to focus on myself and improve my individual skill. I am sure there will be more vetoes from me in grand finals in the near future."

With the double benching, fnatic currently have:

Sweden Jesper "⁠JW⁠" Wecksell
Sweden Freddy "⁠KRIMZ⁠" Johansson
Sweden Ludvig "⁠Brollan⁠" Brolin

Sweden Jimmy "⁠Jumpy⁠" Berndtsson (coach)

Sweden Richard "⁠Xizt⁠" Landström (benched)
Sweden Simon "⁠twist⁠" Eliasson (benched)

JW is the definition of inconsistent. He's been all over the map since the AWP nerf. I'm not saying twist is any better in that respect, but what you said applies directly to JW just as well.

He's not even that good at it, when he's not hitting his shots he's an absolute liability. I mean people have talked about how stupid his playstyle is for years, the difference was in the past he had an impact almost every time and now he's pretty hit or miss (no pun intended).

HIm being inconsistent is not really a huge deal as an entry fragger. If he can just distract the enemy and get traded he did his job already.

But that's the problem: his aggression is often in the form of untradable kills. If he dies there is often very little recourse for the team to push back into the round comfortably. Him being inconsistent in this fashion is an immense liability, similar to arT on Furia.

Still the best in his team to do it. Who would you make get the entries? He enjoys it and is inconsistent+ agressive. Would you put someone like krimz in that position to do it? A good late round player, with a pssive playstyle? When he pops off he wins games by himself. WHen he sucks he doesn't straight up lose them, cuz they don't actually count on him killing everyone. He goes out, get bunch of info, most of the time gets traded. Done.

If it was up to me I wouldn't have him in the team and I'd look for a player with quality teamplay-based aggression. Clearly he's doing fnatic no favors, they've been abysmal the past few months. Him winning a game being predicated on him showing an uncommonly high level is less important than having a player who does the job with less show up or not at all performances. It's not some weird coincidence they played better when he wasn't playing well, which just shows how little his impact is truly felt.

Let's agree to disagree. They always had passive players, adn they had JW. hltv.org/stats/players/matches/3849/JW?s.. THis isn't really what I call an inconsistent entryfragger anyways. 0.8-almost 2 is absolutely normal for entryfraggers. Out of the last 46 maps they played, he went missing on 4, and even in those BO3s he was one of the best players in his team, way above a 1.0 rating.

So we are clear I'm never being disrespectful in my disagreements, so don't think I'm here to disparage you personally. I'm just very objective about these things. Anyway, yes, he's played well recently but contrast that with their placements and it becomes an unimportant statistic. How'd he perform when fnatic were doing well and placing higher? It's why individual stats don't always tell you the story.

We are talking about JWs individual performance. U stated he doesn't have an impact, which he does. It's not his fault 4 people can't clean up after he did his job. Kicking twist and xizt was a way better option that JW in place of one of them. They were shit. Simple as that.
2019-08-23 17:41

But my point is his individual form has only been shown during points of non-contention, which makes the statistics moot. Every time fnatic has done well in the past few years they've rarely needed or relied on JW. Playing for your stats kills your team's success, and it doesn't seem like a strange correlation that he's gotten better but the team's gotten worse. What's the point in him getting a frag or dying if the team isn't able to utilize It? That's somewhat on leading and somewhat on the nature of the kills he's getting.

How is it JWs fault that noone gets anything done? We are talking about individual performance FFS... He gets the stats, and gets shit done, not just on paper. HIs teammates sucking isn't his fault. JW and Krimz are the only good plaers that fnati had in the past year or so. The team sucking we he plays well just shows how it isn't his fault. Is s1mple completely useless cuz his team is playing badly? Is NiKo a bad player that should be replaced when they lose with him topfragging? IS it zywoo in vitality that you would change when they are playing like shit? DO you see what the problem is here?
2019-08-23 18:59

You don't understand that this game requires your teammates to help you out, and if you're only fragging and not setting up your teammates to succeed from that then you're just as culpable, which goes directly back to my point about how he's rarely in positions to allow for active trades. You also think that Brollan hasn't been good for fnatic, when he's been consistently decent for his team (and not nearly as up and down as JW). All of your examples (Niko, s1mple, Zywoo) are players who are, at the very least, more team oriented than JW is. Zywoo especially. I don't like Vitality very much, but he's often playing very smart CS, which is NOT what JW does (and he never has, the number of pros I've heard make jokes about his plays is kind of crazy). You're also making comparison to super star players, which JW just simply isn't (and those players do things far differently than JW anyway). I promise you, if you remove JW from fnatic they will perform about the same, contrary to Vitality or Navi (right now I doubt much would matter for Faze, they need a massive roster overhaul).

You dont understand the basic concepts of an argument, but im on hltv so that shouldnt really cpme as a surprise. Hi is the ehtry fragger. All he does is literally setting his teammates up. I never even mentioned Brollan. I didn't read any further, you are not even arguing my points, just talking about random shit thst makes no sense.

Are you stupid or what? (sorry for late reply btw <3) JW has been the only one getting shit done in fnatic for the past 3 months. Main reason why they got to the finals of Sydney and put up a fight against prime Liquid. Hes the only one being consistently good for the past 3 months. He's a top 6 entry fragger right now statistically and breaching the top 20 this year. Sure he's been inconsistent but hes proven himself recently..
2019-08-25 14:15
2 replies
First, you're right that he played well in Sydney, but: Second, you considered Liquid "prime" in Sydney, which they weren't. The fact that they struggled against fnatic showed they weren't entirely ready to win a larger event still. That final would've been DRASTICALLY different post-Sydney. Third, while I don't dispute his form being better, my issue is that he hasn't (outside of Sydney) contributed to success. Which, again, that's somewhat on his team, but he's rarely been a huge factor. There is usually not a correlation in JW playing well and fnatic going deep in playoffs (which isn't a coincidence if you people would stop looking at a single-tournament placing).
2019-08-25 21:18
1 reply
I considered Liquid in their prime because they were? Nothing was different and they were still winning. Would you say it wasnt prime Astralis in Chicago 2018 against fnatic aswell? Just because they nearly lose to a team they shouldnt doesnt mean they arent within their prime Its not that he doesnt contribute to success, its because recently he is the ONLY one contributing. Hes rarely been a huge factor? He was the reason they closed many games with great lurking and entrying throughout EVERY game in the past 3 months. There is usually not a correlation in JW playing well and fnatic going deep in playoffs? Probably because him having good form can't sole carry a team? Fnatic has always relied on JW to make the entries and not much else, whilst needing someone like Krimz Brollan or Twist to do the heavy lifting. When talking about individuals performance its unfair to talk about team performance 1:1 like they correlate.

JW's impact is like 50/50. He's improved recently, but that is irrelevant when the team's been absolute dogshit. His output hasn't really contributed to success, contrary to someone like KRIMZ when he was carrying fnatic through tournaments.

Yes but krimz is in a carry role with a lot of freedom. Jw is an entry. Very rarely can an entry solo carry in today's meta.
2019-08-24 06:38
How do you think they got to the finals of Sydney? Or how did they even get wins in the past 3 months? Its always been him 2nd or 1st on leaderboard with frags spread out across the entire map rather than Krimz being focused on CT side fragging. Him and Brollan are the only entries that ever come out of fnatic and he has proven he is an invaluable asset to fnatic.

He wasn't at the level of Niko for sure but 'shit' is a little bit much. I mean, after the hand injury he didn't really play at his old level, I think he could have the same role like with Faze because Krimz and Brollan can take the kills, even flusha if they get back in this form

yes twist was the problem. He's inconsistent as hell, and sucks at anything but awping all the time. He's probably only had about 4-5 good games this year

Honestly it was a coin toss on which awper to kick but since jw just signed a long term contract he wasnt getting booted but imo he should have instead of twist. Cause twist can be good and JW is past his prime awping and doesn’t even do it as much

I honestly think JW deserves being benched as well. Krimz seems to be really over time consistent despite of his age, Brollan was and still is perceived as a young talent as a replament for fnatic's former star roster even despite of team's quite underwhelming results. Others did indeed seem to be way off in this lineup, wish twist and xizt best of luck anyways. Hope to once see fnatic tag back in high-tier action. Thank you for your attention.

He hits insane shots and misses all the easy important shots and that make the team lose the whole game . i like the guy too but cant understand how he cant be calm and stop himself flicking everything . like the guy is literally sitting in front of him and draken tries to do some weird flicks xd. I really dont think he could find himself a decent tier1 team again

Xizt sure but why twist tho?
2019-08-21 19:45
I mean, really, they should just keep KRIMZ and Brollan and go from there, don't even leave JW in the roster. Just rebuild completely from the ground up. Don't use any of the old-guard (olof, dennis, gtr, f0rest, etc.), and let some newer talents into the mix. Golden + 2 newer players is the most logical direction, but my assumption is Golden is going to NiP for GTR so that may not pan out.

I'd still get f0rest. He's the only of those old guard that you listed that still plays at a high level both online and on lan. He's probably also the most mechanically gifted of them and it still shows.

I don't disagree, I just kind of want to see a real risk. F0rest is proof that there's a certain gift for some players.

Well, if Fnatic wanted to revamp the roster they should've kicked Xizt and JW tbh, letting Twist AWP fully. Get Flusha and maybe Hampus and try to switch positions a bit, so Twist can have more freedom. Now JW will continue to unferperform, and I expect him to be the weakest link of Fnatic, no matter who they will get.

+forrest After the major I think getright will leave nip to take a step back and join some team like heroic perhaps. Which leaves forrest in a position to join fnatic if he wishes. This dude is adaptable and a legend. An great fragger still in the run for a title. But not in a team anymore with too much building time is required. Aka nip. As hard as the decision is to leave nip and rez and the boys. Leaving together with getright is an good way to say goodbye. Would love to see him join fnatic. Brollan has talent but is young he needs the kind of stable team krimz and forrest could form. A team can effort only one of such player imo. Who the 5th player will be I have no idea. Flusha is a great choice, Sunny too but id rather see him join ence instead of arial. Otton is a great finish player too for EnCe. Hmm lekro can ingame lead. Olof maybe. ChrisJ. Heck Rez could join fnatic with forrest. But then who will be the igl? JW signed a three year contract.
2019-08-21 21:44
About time tbh, Xizt should retire at this point.

The problem with putting in olof and flusha is that they are not IGLs. Yes, Flusha has done some IGLing in Fnatic but he's not a great IGL, and he doesn't want to. I think Flusha and Golden/Hampus would be better, or going international and taking an IGL from somewhere else.

Just bench twist! Xizt back as rifler - without the IG leader role, he will perform better than anyone! Xizt good igl, but not for fnatic - their dynamic tempo is not like NiP. Xizt as rifler, but who would be 5-th? Maybe Friberg as igl role!

Guys il give you some insight of the eSport "world" in generall. You cant just say "get getright, flusha, olof ect" do you know why players like ziw00 and co are the kings right now ? its sad but its a matter of age, Why dont we just recruit Heaton? The sad truth about the human brain and esport is that when you reach like 25years+ your brain is already starting to get old, reaction times get slower ect. Its not cause of people growing up/getting tired of playing games that there is no eSport pros that is 30years+ its cause you cant be competative at those ages cause your reactiontimes cant be good at those ages if you get what im saying. Thats why Xizt dosnt perform anymore, thats why Getright who used to be so damn good isnt performing anymore ect ect ect, expiery date has been passed agewise
2019-08-22 16:05
Xizt maybe again > FaZe?

This is why i dont think its a good idea to bring back the old fnatic lineup alof of you are mentining, the legendary lineup with olof, krimz, flusha, jw wont work anymore cause of age. Simple as that, thats why finding new young players is KEY to remaining on top for the teams., someone starting to get to old? out with old in with new, cant replace old with old

2019-08-22 20:40
Good. Xizt is borderline shit, and Twist wasn't terrible, but he had a habit of completely shitting himself in finals and/or important matches in general. Fnatic needs more clutch people; they need to find some more confident players to supplant people like JW.
2019-08-22 21:11

Omg, when they will realize that the real problem is JW and maybe KRIMZ, just kick old pros noobs and start with something new, fresh players. Fnatic will never win any title with jw na krimz in roster
