Kostantinos ‘tsack’ Theodoropoulos and Muhammed ‘Moe40’ Hariff have been removed from the Fnatic active roster, opening up two vacant spots in their VALORANT team.
The former SUMN FC line-up was signed by Fnatic in early February, following a second-place finish from the orgless squad at First Strike: Europe, placing them as one of the hottest prospects in the region that remained in free agency.
Under Fnatic, the British core didn’t quite live up to their previous heights, despite qualifying for all Challengers tournaments in Stage 1, the team was consistently dispatched in the early stages and thus unable to reach the prestigious VCT: Masters 1.
Fnatic was hoping to bounce back on Stage 2 and qualify for its first event. However, the squad fell on Round of 16, at the hands of Alliance, dooming their chances yet again, at a deeper run on the Riot’s 2021 official circuit.
Yesterday, Tsack was the first to announce his benching on Twitter, signalling the first roster change from Fnatic in two months. This Sunday, Moe40 also confirmed that he would be moved to the bench, with both players being allowed to explore other opportunities.
We came into Valorant with the ambition to be the best and despite immense work from all players and our performance team, we haven’t met our goals so we’ll spend the next week assessing how to move on from here.Colin ‘CoJo’ Johnson, Team Director at Fnatic VALORANT
The team director of Fnatic VALORANT, Colin ‘CoJo’ Johnson, has revealed earlier today to reporter Arran ‘Halo’ Spake that the team is going through a trial process involving “approximately 12 players”.
The Director also declared that In-Game Leader Jake ‘Boaster’ Howlett and Coach Jacob ‘mini’ Harris were also involved in this process, with goals set on assembling a team that reaches the VCT: Masters 2 LAN set to take place in Iceland.
