Enzo and Alfajer join the Fnatic roster for Challengers 2 EMEA
The second part of the VCT EMEA will start on Friday 13th May. In view of this new Challengers, the structures are reinforcing and changing their team. With this in mind, Fnatic has just announced the arrival ofEnzo, ex-Fearoth and Alfajer.
Fnatic is one of the biggest teams in Europe. In the first Challengers EMEA, the roster won 5 games in 5, finishing on top of their group at the end of the regular season. Qualifying for the playoffs, the team made it to the Upper bracket final. Despite their best efforts, the players fell to FPX and then to G2 in the lower bracket. With its participation in the Reykjavik Masters and its performance at Challengers 1, the structure has so far accumulated 125 VCT points.
In order to give themselves the best chance of winning the second Challengers EMEA, Fnatic made some changes during the off-season. It is with Enzo and Alfajer, that Derke, Mistic and Boaster are continuing to compete. These two new players are both regulars at the top level of competition.
Enzo, is none other than the French player Fearoth. A short time ago, he announced his departure from the Alliance structure ; if no information about his future team had been revealed, it is now done. In an official statement, Jacob 'Mini' Harris, the team's coach, explains that this addition follows the player's rental, by Fnatic for the Reykjavik Masters.
The decision to pick up Enzo was straightforward as we had the luxury of being with him and watching him play before and during Masters, Reykjavik. His main strengths are in his support skills, both in and out of the game. He is the rare kind that still manages to put up numbers whilst being the teammate you wish for. An experienced, "secondary-IGL" type player is something we've wanted to have in the team for a while. We’re looking forward to working with Enzo to flesh out that role to add depth to the squad.Jacob Harris - Fnatic coach
Alfajer, the new player is a young player who played for Surreal Esports, the winning team of the Turkish VRL, and who finished 3rd in the promotional tournament for the VCT. According to the coach, this new player is a rising talent, who will bring a lot to the team.
Alfajer is an exciting player with a huge amount of firepower and pure talent. We believe he is more than capable to be one of our star players but we will be sure to ease him through that transition as he is such a young player. He has plenty of flexibility in his agent pool which bodes well for long-term success in Fnatic. We want to be able to adapt to the fast-paced meta changes we see in Valorant and we expect that direction to only continue.Jacob Harris - Fnatic coach
The new team will be able to show its talent in its first match, which will take place on Saturday 14th against FunPlus Phoenix. This match will be an opportunity for Fnatic to take revenge on FPX!
