Raven departs Geek Fam, joins Fnatic; 23savage out

By Chelsea JackJuly 28, 2020
In a surprising announcement, Geek Fam shared today Marc Polo Luis "Raven" Fausto has left the squad. Hours later, Fnatic shared their own news: Raven is in, but Nuengnara "23savage" Teeramahanon is out.
Raven was with Geek Fam for roughly 16 months. The roster initially struggled, but in recent weeks had won two big SEA championships: ONE Esports Dota 2 SEA League and [BTS Pro Series: SEA(https://www.trackdota.com/events/32).
It's likely no coincidence that it was Fnatic who Geek Fam faced in the finals of ONE Esports' SEA League. Fnatic has long been near or at the top of the competition in the Southeast Asian region. After placing second and third in the two most recent major SEA events, apparently, the organization has decided it is time to make a move.
Raven had previously played with Fnatic for a brief period in 2016. That roster was unable to achieve the desired results, and Raven moved on to another top SEA team: TNC. Expectations are much higher now as Raven is broadly considered one of the best players in the region.
Meanwhile, 23savage will be looking for a new team. He recently became only the second player to reach 11,000 MMR, and his high technical abilities are inarguable. Perhaps Geek Fam will fill their new open carry slot with the talented Thai player?
