Klaj was a substitute support for the Fnatic’s EU LCS team while Kikis was the team’s top laner in 2016 Summer season. Nisqy played for Team-LDLC earlier in 2016, and Broxah played for Copenhagen Wolves and Tricked eSports.
Fnatic has announced that they plan to run a 10-person roster this month, but 5 of the players would be a part of the Fnatic Academy to bring it back. The organization has formed academy rosters in the past, which has not been successful during the 2016 EU CS Summer Qualifier in May.
