Fnatic's Dota 2 team is making changes. They announced today
they are adding Nico "eyyou" Barcelon to their roster and releasing Anucha "Jabz" Jirawong.
This decision follows a third-place result at ESL One Thailand: Asia
. During that event, the team had Djardel "DJ" Mampusti stand-in for team captain, Daryl "iceiceice" Koh, who is taking a competitive break. DJ and Jabz both prefer the position four role, and it was determined after the event that the team will be stronger with a true position five player on the squad.
Eyyou is no stranger to Fnatic, having played with the team in 2016. He's coming off of a year-long break, so expect some rust when the team debuts the new roster in competition.
Fnatic went on to thank Jabz for "all his contributions in his 2 years with Fnatic, steering us towards numerous victories throughout his years under the black and orange banner."
With this second change to the roster, will Fnatic return to peak form?
