Fnatic announced that they have parted ways with Maks "kamyk" Rychlewski, who has been the team's 6th-man.

Fnatic part ways with kamyk

The Polish player, who began his professional VALORANT career with Movistar Riders, participated in several C and B-Tier tournaments here. At the beginning of 2022, kamyyk joined Anonymo Esports, where his most significant achievement was winning the VRL 2022 East: Surge Stage 1. His journey continued with brief stints in Rebels Gaming and UCAM Esports Club before landing with Fnatic.

In early 2023, he joined Fnatic. Yet, Fnatic wasn't the fairytale he envisioned. kamyk joined as the team's sixth player and only participated in one official tournament with Fnatic. Still, he got his moment to shine during VCT 2023: EMEA League and it's the only tournament kamyk played. Fnatic's star player, Emir "Alfajer" Ali Beder, faced visa issues, opening the door for kamyk to step in as a sub. In a blaze of glory, he led Fnatic to a flawless 2-0 victory against Giants Gaming and a nail-biting 2-1 win against BBL Esports. Despite his performance, Alfajer resolved his visa problems, reclaiming his position in the team after the second week.

In this short but impactful stint, kamyk showcased his exceptional skills, notably in the intense clash against BBL Esports, where they triumphed 2-1 with 52/41/11 KDA. His challenging 8-month journey with Fnatic ended last month, leading him to embrace an inactive role.

Fnatic emerged as one of 2023's most captivating and successful teams, achieving unparalleled synergy, especially between the commanding leader Jake "Boaster" Howlett and Alfajer. Their season was decorated with 2 championships, a commendable second-place finish, and a gritty fourth-place position. As the year draws to a close, Fnatic gears up for the Red Bull Home Ground #4 in Tokyo from November 3 to 5. Eyes around the globe remain fixated on this powerhouse team, waiting to see if they will continue their streak of dominance.

Fnatic current roster:

  • United Kingdom Jake "Boaster" Howlett
  • Sweden Leo "Leo" Jannesson
  • Turkey Emir "Alfajer" Ali Beder
  • Finland Nikita "Derke" Sirmitev
  • Russian Federation Timofey "Chronicle" Khromov
