Seems likely after Champions:
Changing Fnatic players is pretty hard though. Like who would you even replace? I think most of their players have potential as individuals and are at least decent at their roles. Like do you want to kick Derke and get someone like keloqz? Again I don't think that that would be huge upgrade. Kick Boaster, but lose IGL and Sova? Like its so hard in my opinion. And maybe I'm still little biased due to their Iceland run, but I don't know...
I pretty much agree with you. The only changes I could see making sense are if they blew up the whole squad and made something new with the scraps of guild giants g2 heretics and whichever players from top teams are in limbo.
I don't see a case where they just remove one player for a like for like replacement.
That could happen, but again its like are Guild/Giants/Heretics/G2 scraps really that much better than current Fnatic? Like in my opinion Yacine/Bonkar/Draken aren't, Giants will most likely keep F1tinho/Ambi/Davidp anyway, there really isn't any Heretics players that come to my mind who would be upgrades and maybe they could get someone like Koldamenta from G2 or even keloqz (again I don't think he different much from Derke). All Fnatic players have pretty high ceiling, but are super inconsistent and Fnatic lacks vision in my opinion. And I still think they should at least keep Magnum and Mistic.
Actually would be interesting to see what Koldamenta could do with this team.
Yeah man, it becomes a case of "which parts work best together". Because as you say, individually, the top free agents and players in limbo are not an obvious step above the current fnc players.
Dont forget NIP, all their players are pretty much available so maybe ecls? But I agree, is hard to see how any possible change would be an actual upgrade over the current Fnatic roster
Loool, he knew exactly what he was doing XD.
"Hope I'm not dropping any bombs here"
If they don't perform well; that's the condition. They've stuck together for a year so if it doesn't work in this tournament, it's probably not going to work in the future.
Though they have magnum for example on contract until 2024, so if anyone is going to get off it's not him.
holy shit, it's been so long since that i have watched a fnatic match that i don't even know who they are gonna drop. any guesses?
Probably everybody except Derke and Magnum
Boaster's fragging is tragic, he was "okay" 6 months ago but now he's not better than bonkar
Doma / Mistic are not really good aimers (Doma fell off to be honest) and their decision making sucks at times, Mistic was insane on 2.06 viper but they nerfed her to the ground, just like the rest of the game
they can just buy nip's roster and replace their whole roster.
BET they will sign koldamenta who's about to get benched by G2
There's no better available tier1 IGL in EMEA than him
Afterwards they just need 2 cracked aimers to main smokes / flex (easiest roles), and the team is ready to go
The only person that you could change is Mistic, and is not even necessary
But who will be it be? Idont think theyre gonna get rid of boaster or derke. Doma and magnum are still pretty decent on their roles. Only mistic is easily replaceable tbh
