Konstantinos "tsack" Theodoropoulos has announced that he has been benched from the FNATIC FNATIC Europe Rank #2 active roster, the first roster change the organization has seen since entering Valorant.
As the last player to join the SUMN FC mix, replacing the outgoing Denis "dinkzj" Tkachev, tsack was signed by Fnatic with the rest of the team in early February.
Since then, Fnatic's results have remained more modest than many fans had hoped, in contrast to the team's initial meteoric rise following their second-place finish in First Strike: Europe. While Fnatic consistently qualified for all of the Challengers in Stage 1, they were quickly knocked out in the quarterfinals of each of them.
The British core further stumbled in their opening event of Stage 2, falling to Alliance 2-0 in the qualifying round of 16. The move marks Fnatic's first roster change in two months.
Colin "CoJo" Johnson, the team director of Fnatic, has announced on Twitter that the organization will evaluate further changes in the coming weeks.
