The rumours were true — the former Mineski duo iceiceice and Anucha 'Jabz' Jirawong joined Fnatic today.
They will play alongside Djardel 'DJ' Mampusti and Abed 'Abed' Yusop, who are the only members that remained at Fnatic after their Western players left.
A few names were thrown around for our last member. But, in the end, we decided to go with MP and thinks that he would work out best with us. I hope we can go further than we have ever been with this current line up. - Djardel 'DJ' Mampusti
No Raven, but MP and Dubu join
In the early stages of the roster shuffle period, people hoped that Marc Polo Luis 'Raven' Fausto would join Fnatic after he left TNC Predator, because he's one of the most skilled Filipino carries in the scene.
However, he decided to join Chong Xin 'Ohaiyo' Khoo's lineup at Lotac. That meant Fnatic had to search for another top-notch carry from Southeast Asia to complete their new powerhouse roster.
They also added two Korean players to their roster — Pyo 'MP' Noa, previously of Immortals*, will be the new hard carry of the team. His former teammate Kim 'DuBu' Duyoung ceases to be an active player by joining as coach for the new Fnatic squad.
