Fnatic decided to put Jackinho on the bench. At the next tournaments and qualifiers, smooya will play for the team.
With this change, fnatic has drawn the line of a 22-year-old sniper's 10-month tenure with the team. After joining the Swedish band in January, Jackinho did not receive an AWP right away as the role was reserved for JW. However, after the first global changes, the 22-year-old Swede still got his favorite device.
Nevertheless, the team did not show any special results with Jackinho, having only managed to start loudly after the silver in cs_summit 7. However, all subsequent tournaments fnatic only delayed the inevitable reshuffle, as a result of which the British squad was diluted by the British in the face of mezii and ALEX.
But even fresh blood did not help the team to shoot, because fnatic alternately failed at ESL Pro League Season 14 and Intel Extreme Masters XVI - Fall: Europe, and did not qualify at all for PGL Major Stockholm 2021.
At the moment fnatic will be playing alongside smooya, who is still on the bench at Movistar Riders. The British sniper is expected to assist the team in the first open qualifier for IEM Winter 2021, while the organization looks for a full replacement.
From now on, fnatic's roster looks like this:
- Smooya (stand-in.
- keita (trainer).
- Jackinho (bench).
