Jackinho released by fnatic
The young Swedish AWPer finds himself looking for a new home shortly after his recent benching.
It was announced today that, after just under a year with the team, Jack "Jackinho" Ström Mattsson is being released by fnatic. The news comes mere months after his benching in favour of Owen "smooya" Butterfield. This move will be a surprise to few, considering the immense upswing in results that the team have experienced since Jackinho's removal from the active line-up.
During his tenure with fnatic they had slowly slipped down the world rankings to hover around the top-30, and achieved little of note. Their best finish with him in the squad was at his very first event, cs_summit 7, where amongst a solid field they achieved a top-two finish behind Virtus.pro.
Individually the 22-year-old AWPer rarely shone, posting a sub 1.00 HLTV rating at seven of the 12 events he played with the team, with his better performances coming in events with weaker fields, such as Snow Sweet Snow 3.
