Fnatic bench tsack

Written By    Germanicus  -  share on

After a significant string of poor results following their signing, Kostas "tsack" Theodoropoulos has announced that he’s been benched from Fnatic’s roster.

Fnatic signed SUMN FC in early February, riding a big wave of hype as one of Europe’s most creative teams and the First Strike finalists. But since then, it’s been nothing but struggles for one of the biggest organizations in the world. Fnatic didn’t even make Stage 1 Challengers 1 in Europe, and in Challengers 2 and 3, they failed to punch their ticket to Masters both times, with losses to FunPlus Phoenix and Ballista Esports respectively. With VCT Stage 2 kicking off just a few days ago, no changes were made, and Fnatic again failed to make Challengers in a 2-0 loss to Alliance.

While tsack was originally the team’s Sentinel player, he’s been on a Sova and Skye role more recently. But none of this seems to be helping. With the lack of European streams, it’s very hard to tell what’s been going wrong with Fnatic, but it’s undisputable that tsack’s statlines have been poor.

Fnatic will need to find a fifth before Open Qualifiers for Challengers 2 begin on April 10th. It’s not a lot of time, and the stakes are high - if an organization as big as Fnatic fails again, there’s bound to be more changes incoming.

Fnatic are now:

Jake “Boaster” Howlett James “Mistic” Orfila Muhammad “Moe” Hariff Domagoj “Doma” Fancev

Kostas "tsack" Theodoropolous (Benched)

Jacob "mini" Harris (Coach)


Ahhhh rip the SUMN FC squad

Mistic up next on the chopping block, sadly, I hope they can get a good replacement, Boaster and Doma are deffo tier 1 talents and Moe's aiom is nothing to scoff at

Moe has been benched so I don't think that's the case

I think fnatic might go for a super team now, they have the money and their CS:GO roster sucks balls so they might go all in for VALORANT.

Agreed, Fnatic needs a team that can win every tournament they are in (which is not the case)
I believe that there's gonna be changes on G2 and Liquid too soon, the big orgs in EU are all struggling
