fnatic reveal academy roster

The lineup features the main team's substitute player and former analyst.

fnatic has announced the composition of its new fnatic Rising roster built around the main team's substitute player, Peppe "⁠Peppzor⁠" Borak, and former analyst, Kevin "⁠Kevve⁠" Bohlin, who will serve as their in-game leader.

The organization has completed the lineup with young players from Romania, Portugal, and Germany. The AWPing role has been filled by former GameAgents sniper Iulian "⁠regali⁠" Harjău after he impressed on the lower-tier scene, while Francisco "⁠kst⁠" Fragoso and ex-ALTERNATE aTTaX's David "⁠prosus⁠" Hesse will take up rifling duties in the team.

Former GameAgents member regali will be the team's AWPer

The organization has revealed that the academy team will serve as a "dynamic roster, rotating between players and young talent throughout the season of the WePlay league."

"Our goal is to operate under one unified structure across the main roster and this new academy team," Andreas "⁠Samuelsson⁠" Samuelsson, who has transitioned from the role of the coach to the team director, said in a statement. "This will allow us to ensure there is a key transfer of knowledge and experience between the two."

The fnatic Rising squad was announced just hours ahead of the kick-off of the WePlay Academy League's first season, in which they will take part alongside the secondary teams of several other top organizations, such as Young Ninjas, NAVI Junior, and Astralis Talent.

The European mixture will make their debut in the academy league's round-robin group stage on Monday at 21:00 , against the recently former mouz NXT side around Ádám "⁠torzsi⁠" Torzsás.

fnatic Rising are:

Sweden Peppe "⁠Peppzor⁠" Borak
Sweden Kevin "⁠Kevve⁠" Bohlin
Portugal Francisco "⁠kst⁠" Fragoso
Romania Iulian "⁠regali⁠" Harjău
Germany David "⁠prosus⁠" Hesse

IGL is fnatic analyst, so obviously this team is made to develop new talents and after some time some of them can be promoted to A team or sold to another team if they are under contract.

He is not a pro, he is analyst in fnatic. He is there to help young guys to develop and maybe go into A team of fnatic. If u are stupid to understund they are trying to develop one or two players for A team one day . That is all point of B team in every sport of esport.

Maybe if you would know something about iberian scene you would understand the logic process, let me explain a little bit about your scene since you know nothing at all: Kst was benched from Velox which is top20++ iberian team, after that not even eXploit wanted him, and it is worst with pr since he was kicked from OFFSET, which is a team that would prefer to have him 10000 times before of having an old guy like RIZZZ due of their politics of building a next generation of youngsters around fox, and also nobody wanted him because he had such an awful reputation in regards of his attitude, at least kst is a smart player and has room for improvement. But in your mind these are better players than slaxx and dav1g, right? Do you know Iberian benched DeathZz ( 1,10 player ) over slaxx and dav1g? maybe they should fire Kairi and hire you as a coach because you seem to know better!! :o

When your national scene is so starved for up and coming talent you have to go looking abroad to build a fucking academy team? WTF????
2021-07-19 18:01
This clearly means that the A-team is going international as well?

Imagine not creating a team with Peppzor, joelxd, chawzzy svedjehed and an IGL / to save Sweden

It is a good thought. Although several of those players are signed by other teams already. I dont know how tempting it would sound to go from an established team into a rotating academy roster.

Yes, would be a good future for Swedish cs if nip, dig and fntc always had new players to choose from when needing roster changes. To me, this all but confirms that fnatic is going international.
