Fnatic Bench JW, Announce Plans For The Future
Fnatic look to start fresh with an international roster
by Tit Krajnik on July 21, 2021   

Jesper "JW" Wecksell has been benched from Fnatic as a part of a roster overhaul, which will see the Swedish Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team move to an international roster. The news surfaced on Tuesday, July 20, leaving Fnatic with only three active members.

JW's benching follows Fnatic's decision to remove Maikil "Golden" Selim from their active roster at the start of the month. This now leaves them with Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson, Ludvig "Brollan" Brolin, and Jack "Jackinho" Ström Mattsson as the only remaining active players.

The organization has not revealed too much about their future plans; however, they announced that they'd build a new, international roster. With that, Fnatic would step away from fielding an all-Swedish lineup that became synonymous with the organization since they first appeared in the CS:GO scene in 2014.

 

 

The big roster overhaul follows a shaky and unsuccessful year that saw Fnatic drop out of the top-10 in the global rankings. Throughout 2021, Fnatic have not won a single tournament, extending their dry streak that dates back to April 2020, when the Swedes won ESL Pro League Season 11: Europe.

Fnatic's best placement of 2021 was a third-fourth place finish at Snow Sweet Snow #3 and Spring Sweet Spring #1. However, the team failed to deliver at top-tier tournaments, placing last or next-to-last in their last four outings.

Fnatic are currently ranked 38th in the global rankings. This is the organization's worst placement in history, excluding a brief transitional period in 2016, when Robin "flusha" Rönnquist, KRIMZ, and JW all left for GODSENT before returning back to the team by January 2017.

"After six weeks of deep evaluations and hard work, we have decided to bench Jesper," said Fnatic head coach and team director, Andreas "Samuelsson" Samuelsson

"We have spent tons of hours deciding which route we are going to take to bring back fnatic to where we belong, and the final decision is to change to an international lineup."

JW was the longest-serving member of the Swedish esports organization, having spent over seven years representing Fnatic's brand. JW led Fnatic to three Major Championships titles, including DreamHack Winter 2013, ESL One Katowice 2015, and ESL One Cologne 2015, making him one of the most successful CS:GO players in history.

 

 

Although JW is no longer a part of Fnatic's active CS:GO lineup, the 26-year-old is still under contract, which is set to expire at the beginning of 2022. It's unclear what the future holds for the Swedish esports veteran; however, some rumors suggest that he might look to transition to Valorant.

If the rumors prove to be true, JW will become the second former CS:GO Major Champion after Nathan "NBK" Schmitt to transition to Riot Games's tactical first person shooter title.
