Both Fnatic and GODSENT are far away from their best days and their best performances. Because of that, it is no wonder that both teams are looking for a solution to their problems. In the past, these two teams were known for closely collaborating and switching players from one team to another. Yesterday, both teams announced that they have made yet another switch that will result in their rosters being changed a bit.
GODSENT and especially Fnatic are having serious problems when it comes to their results in CS:GO competitions. This fact is especially troublesome for Fnatic as they were once considered the best Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team in the world. Once a dominant force, Fnatic’s fans are now satisfied if their team manages to reach the main event of a tournament.
Changes in Fnatic
In the last year or so, Fnatic changed their CS:GO roster several times and during the August player break, they are looking to do the same thing. A couple of days ago, it was announced that Maikil ‘Golden’ Selim will be joining their team after he has been playing for Fnatic Academy team for quite some time.
Apparently, that change was not enough as they looked for yet another player and they found it in GODSENT. Fnatic has announced that Jonas ‘Lekr0’ Olofsson, who was described as by far the best GODSENT player, will be joining their team. With Lekr0 signing with Fnatic, he became the third player who moved from GODSENT to Fnatic in the last 12 months.
Before him, Freddy ‘KriMZ’ Johansson, Robin ‘flusha’ Ronnquist, and Jesper ‘JW’ Wecksell left Fnatic to join GODSENT. However, those transfers did not prove to be successful and only two months after joining Fnatic Lekr0 and KriMZ left the team and returned to GODSENT. Only a couple of months after that, all players involved in the move what came to be known as the Swedish Shuffle returned to their previous teams.
With Lekr0 going back to Fnatic once again, GODSENT was forced to look for a player that would replace Lekr0 in his position. They did not have to look for long, as they found their replacement in Fnatic. In the last several weeks, many reports indicated that Dennis ‘dennis’ Edman is not having a good time in Fnatic anymore and that he will be looking for a way out.
Once Fnatic announced that Olofmeister has left the team and joined FaZe Clan those rumors became even more widespread only for them to be confirmed by yet another shuffle between these two Swedish teams. Dennis will be joining GODSENT in an effort to bring back this team to the top of competitive CS:GO.
The problems that these two teams have been facing in the last year or so are not something that could be solved by releasing one player and bringing in another player. Their troubles are rooted much deeper and because of that, the fact that GODSENT and Fnatic have decided to make another player trade indicates that both teams are in a very desperate position and that they feel a huge pressure to improve their performances. Whether or not that will be happening remains to be seen, but we will be hearing more about these two teams in the upcoming weeks for sure.
