Source: Fnatic

Fnatic has been relatively quiet this offseason following a top 8 finish at the 2020 League of Legends World Championship, but many reports and roster moves have directly or indirectly affected the team. Here is the current reported roster for Fnatic. 

 

Fnatic
Pos. 2020 2021
Top Bwipo Bwipo
Jungle Selfmade  
Mid Nemesis Nisqy
ADC Rekkles Upset
Support Hylissang Hylissang
H. Coach Mithy YamatoCannon

Confirmed player signings are in green. Confirmed player departures are in strikethrough red. Transfers reported by reputable sources are in purple.

 

Top laner Gabriël "Bwipo" Rau told Inven Global earlier this month that there was a 99% chance he would remain with Fnatic. On November 15, Jacob Wolf reported that support Zdravets "Hylissang"  Iliev Galabov was re-signing with Fnatic on a one-year contract.

 

 

Yasin "Nisqy" Dincer has been reported as heading to Fnatic to replace Tim "Nemesis" Lipovšek in the mid lane. Cloud9 originally reported Nisqy and the rest of its starting roster would be sticking together, but has since parted ways with top laner Eric "Licorice" Ritchie and is reportedly buying out Luka "Perkz" Perković from G2 Esports, the latter of which would leave Nisqy without a starting job on C9.

Alfonso "Mithy" Aguirre Rodríguez made his head coach debut with Fnatic in 2020, but is reportedly being replaced by Jakob "YamatoCannon" Mebdi, the latter of whom most recently coached SANDBOX Gaming in the 2020 League of Legends Champions Korea Summer Split.

The biggest question mark for Fnatic is the free agency of AD carry Martin "Rekkles" Larsson. Rekkles has spent all but one split of his eight LEC seasons with Fnatic, but has decided to test the waters of the free agency market this off-season. 

 

UPDATE 11/18: Fnatic has confirmed that Rekkles is parting ways with the organization. 

 


UPDATE 11/19: Fnatic has confirmed it has re-signed Hylissang.

 

 

 

UPDATE 11/24: Fnatic has confirmed its reported signing of Nisqy, who will be replacing Nemesis as the team's starting mid laner. This confirmation comes shortly after the organization is reportedly attempting to buyout Elias "Upset" Lipp from Astralis now that Rekkles has joined G2 Esports.

UPDATE 11/25: Fnatic has confirmed its parting of ways with Nemesis. The mid laner made his professional debut for Fnatic in the 2019 LEC Spring Split and remained the starter for the past two seasons. Nemesis has announced he won't be playing in the LCS or LEC next split and will instead opt to take a break.

UPDATE 11/25: Fnatic has announced that YamatoCannon will take the place of Mithy as the team's new Head Coach. YamatoCannnon began his coaching career in 2015, and in 2019, became the first Western coach in the history of League of Legends Champions Korea with SANDBOX Gaming. 

 

 

In addition, Gary "Tolki" Mialaret will be joining YamatoCannon on the FNC staff. Tolki previously utilized his talents for T1 in 2020 and Splyce in 2019. 

 

UPDATED 11/26: Fnatic has confirmed that pending Riot Games approval, Upset has been signed to a three-year contract.
