CMD368 – Fnatic roster changes continue and the situation seems to only get harder. Daryl Koh “iceiceice” Pei Xiang leaves the team after two years spent in the Fnatic jersey. According to the official announcement made by the organization, iceiceice’s contract has expired and he did not wish to renew it as he “gained an interest in playing for another region while extending his break.” According to the official made by the organization, iceiceice’s contract has expired and he did not wish to renew it as he “gained an interest in playing for another region while extending his break.”
Mid-August iceiceice took a competitive break, stating that he will return when “the DPC resumes.” However, with Valve announcing their intentions to bring back the Dota Pro Circuit sometime early 2021, iceiceice attempted to end his vacation and re-join the team who was already playing with a stand-in player after kicking Anucha “Jabz” Jirawong. His comeback lasted for just one matchup in the currently ongoing BTS Pro Series: Southeast Asia.
Three days after the rather, Fnatic is not only waving goodbye to iceiceice, but also to Nico “eyyou” Barcelon, who has been briefly trying to fill in Jabz’ shoes at BTS Pro Series. Fnatic also posted a statement that reads,
“We will also immediately be releasing Nico ‘eyyou’ Barcelon from our roster. After trialing Nico for one week as captain, we have mutually agreed that it’s best for us to part ways. With that in mind, we will once again have Sangdon ‘Forev’ Lee stand-in for us for the remainder of BTS Pro Series 3 and we will move Kenny ‘Xepher’ Deo to helm the position 5, “announced Fnatic today, September 16, as they stand on a 0-6 loss record in the tournament.
