British esports organization Fnatic has announced changes to its Halo roster by signing Suppressed and Artic. In addition, Neighbor, who headed Built By Gamers at the beginning of the season, became the team's new head coach.
After a period of low performance and inconsistency on the part of Fnatic's Halo division, we have decided to enter a period of overhaul. Unfortunately, we have parted ways with our head coach Strobe and two players, SuperCC and Rammyy. We wish them good luck and hope that they will be successful in their next teams.
Qualifying for the World Cup is our main focus at the moment and we have created a roster that we believe will be the most competitive we have ever had under Black and Orange. In the last 3 weeks we have tested about 10 players and talked to many others - and have chosen the next team.
The first newcomer to the team was Suppressed. The American started the new season as part of XSET, with which he became the winner of HCS 2021-22 North America Open Series 7. However, in the summer, the esportsman moved to Spacestation Gaming, which was later disbanded by the organization.
Fnatic's next signing was Artic, another former XSET player. Together with the team, the American took part in the Halo Championship Series 2022: Kansas City Major, where he took 9th-12th place.
Neighbor has been appointed as the new head coach of the squad. As a professional player, the 32-year-old American has left a significant mark on the scene. However, for the first half of this year, he led the Built By Gamers team, with which he did not achieve significant results, and soon left his post.
With the updated roster, the team will strive to get to the Halo World Championship 2022, which will be held at the end of October. In addition, tomorrow, September 16, the team will take part in the eUnited Grunt Classic 2022.
