FNATIC Raven : After a long and grueling competitive season, Fnatic are now down to only three players. Following last week’s resignation of Anucha “Jabz” Jirawong, Marc “Raven” Fausto will be exploring other options for the 2019 Dota Pro Circuit. Both sides mutually decided to terminate Raven’s contract after The International 2022, and the organization made that decision public.
Raven’s second term with Fnatic began in 2020, and it afforded him the opportunity to compete in two TI tournaments, but without much success. Fnatic was ousted in the second round of the lower bracket at TI10 by Team Spirit, who went on to complete a full lower bracket comeback and create one of the greatest cinderella storylines.
It was a roller coaster of a season building up to TI11 for Fnatic, who at the conclusion of the DPC season were thought to have not even earned a seat at the year’s most crucial event. Valve’s late statement that they were utilizing a new technique for point computations pushed Fnatic half a point ahead of Outsiders, allowing them to skip regional qualifying for TI11.
They got an even poorer score in TI11 than they had the year before. Gaimin Gladiators eliminated Fnatic from the competition in the first round of the lower bracket, sending them home in 17th or 18th position.
Fnatic parted ways with two of its mainstays, Raven and Jabz, after a series of disappointing results, including a defeat on the TI stage.
Fnatic current roster
- Armel Paul “Armel” Tabios
- Jaunuel “Jaunuel” Arcilla
