poizon becomes free agent

The Bulgarian AWPer's contract in fnatic has expired and he is now a free agent.

Valentin "⁠poizon⁠" Vasilev is no longer a part of fnatic and has entered free agency, the 23-year-old announced on Twitter. The AWPer joined the London-based organization on a trial basis in early March but was moved to the bench following a poor run of form during April and May.

The Bulgarian marksman leaves the black-and-orange behind after five months with the organization and is now free to explore his options in the market ahead of the new season.

poizon is now a free agent after three months on the bench

poizon's tenure with the squad was not without its highlights as he was part of the team's unlikely run to the playoffs of ESL Pro League Season 15. His lights-out performances against G2 and MOUZ pushed fnatic over the line despite playing with various stand-ins during the group stage.

The AWPer was moved to the inactive roster in May after a poor series of results for fnatic in the IEM Dallas 2022 qualifiers and the European Regional Major Ranking event in April, which he finished with an average rating of 0.92. He was joined on the bench by Alex "⁠ALEX⁠" McMeekin during a time of change in the ranks of the black-and-orange.

"Since my contract expired with fnatic I am now a free agent and open to offers," poizon announced on Twitter. "Now I am looking forward to coming back strong as possible. Long days of individual practice coming up to get in shape and be ready!"

The thing with CoL was that he supposedly treated practice like a joke. Claims of not showing up at all or messing around, not taking it seriously if he did bother.

+1, not that it would save EG overall but cerq has been doing nothing for 3 years. poizon would almost certainly be an upgrade.

Needs to drop down to a decent international tier2 team and prove his worth again. But can be one of the best awpers in the world when he's playing well - so would be a good pickup for a team that needs to take a chance.

poizon is just the best player really. annoys me that some people think they can take his stint in fnatic as a benchmark for anything and if u were to - he wasn't even bad. I watched some games, really nice, as always. Since his end of Col in ' 21 he has been done dirty, god with rifle or awp and nobody gives him a chance. It's just absurd.
2022-08-15 21:37
outdated already, nobody going to pick him up, and plus he's being lazy by saying " Long days of individual practice coming up to get in shape and be ready!" obviously someone took some time off, not even streaming etc..
