KRIMZ to miss ESL Pro League match due to illness; kreaz brought on as substitute

fnatic have announced that Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson will not be playing tonight's ESL Pro League match due to illness, while Rasmus "kreaz" Johansson has been brought on as an emergency substitute.

fnatic are slated to play HellRaisers tonight at 22:15 in their ESL Pro League second group stage opening match. The Swedes will also play FaZe and Vitality over the course of the weekend as they fight for a spot in the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals, which will take place in Odense, Denmark, early next month.

KRiMZ will have to watch fnatic from the sidelines tonight

fnatic are paired up with HellRaisers in their opening match tonight, the easiest match-up in an otherwise very competitive group, which turned out to be a lucky strike as they will be missing one of their star players, KRIMZ, who is out due to illness.

The Swedish organization announced that filling in for KRIMZ tonight will be kreaz, who was last seen playing open qualifiers with Budapest Five, although he could end up sticking around past tonight depending on how KRIMZ's condition develops over the coming hours and days.

fnatic's lineup for tonight's match against HellRaisers is:

Sweden Jesper "JW" Wecksell
Sweden Robin "flusha" Rönnquist
Sweden Ludvig "Brollan" Brolin
Sweden Maikil "Golden" Selim
Sweden Rasmus "kreaz" Johansson (Stand-in)

Sweden Andreas "Samuelsson" Samuelsson (Coach)

i think dennis is too complicated with implications. Kreaz is a fresh, FPL fragger who can just take a position, talk swedish and play. Dennis might want a specific role, maybe he has drama with them still, maybe he wants to play a certain way idk

In Brazil people always say the truth in this kind of situation. Hiding will just make people gossip shit about it, saying it's a much worse thing than it really is. Different cultures.

People gossip and talk shit in all cultures in this situation. Even if when a reason is given people gossip about it being a lie. He only owes an explanation to his teammates and management.

2019-11-16 20:18
Still under contract for FNC for another half year, no idea why they didn't use him. There's no way Xizt is less good than a tier 4 semi pro, plus he knows all the players and usually performs very well as a stand-in.

Xizt Good Pick one, he. Literally killed fnatic classics playstyle his retarted slow game
2019-11-17 07:58
Golden would still be IGL if Xizt is a stand-in, nothing changes. Kreaz on the other hand doesn't know any of them, doesn't even know the professional scene itself, so FNC did perform significantly worse with him, though luckily still managed to win.

I don't know about fragging, but I'd say he's a top 5 clutch player, and a very good lurk and support as well. One of the smartest players. There's a reason he was the most decorated CS:GO player for so long (until Olof recently overtook him), and still is the most decorated general CS player.
