Despite that success J.Storm will bring in a new player to replace Milan 'MiLAN' Kozomara on the support position. The Bosnian player was the only one that didn't live in North America, which probably complicated practicing and communication.
I'm excited to be approached to play again on the big stage with good friends and talented players :). Expecting big things and will do my best to not only live up to the name they have created for themselves, but go beyond and create something legendary. https://t.co/E9bs58Pqrg— Clinton Loomis (@FearDotA) 15.

They decided to sign one of the most known North American Dota 2 players of all-time. However, Fear's comeback in the professional scene didn't happen out of a sudden.
The veteran already explained in September that he's checking his options to make a comeback as a position 1 player. He joined Jacky 'EternaLEnVy' Mao's stack to qualify for the upcoming Major after EE and JingJun 'Sneyking' Wu left compLexity Gaming. However, they didn't succeed and disbanded immediately afterwards.
A lot of people are asking me what I am going to be doing this year so here: No, I do not want to coach your team. I do want to play competitively again as pos 1, but I didn't get an offer from a team I believe in, so I'm just going to pub until the right opportunity comes by 😉— Clinton Loomis (@FearDotA) 22.

Now we'll see Fear back in action, not as a position 1 player like he hoped, but at least on a team with enough opportunity and talent to be a threat to NA's top teams. He already played position 4 support for EG back in the days in 2016 at The Manila Major and The Shanghai Major before he switched back to the carry position.

Was it the right time for Fear to make his comeback? What are the chances of J.Storm to win the Major?
