Just a few hours after he left Geek Fam, Marc Polo Luis “Raven” Fausto joined Fnatic.
Today has been a really crazy day for the SEA Dota 2 scene. Even though Geek Fam has been really strong recently, one of their star players decided to part ways with the team. This was really strange, especially when you take into account the team’s performance.
However, just a few hours later, we learned why Raven decided to make a change. From now on, he will become a part of SEA’s strongest team right now — Fnatic. There, he will take on the carry role.
DOTA ROSTER UPDATE
The Raven Returns.
The Fnatic carry, @ravendoto. 🇵🇭
Southeast Asia reveres him or fears him, and now he's back in Black and Orange.

Once it was announced that Raven was leaving Geek Fam, many people automatically assumed he would go back to Fnatic. In case you forgot, he used to play for the organization back in 2016.
As expected, Fnatic confirmed the transfer via its Twitter account just hours later. Now that Raven joined the team, one of Fnatic’s players will have to make way, which is why the organization chose to remove Nuengnara “23savage” Teeramahanonn. The young carry player did pretty well, for the most part, however, the lack of experience seems to be a big issue for the SEA powerhouse.
What’s intersting about 23savage is that he actually reached the mind-blowing 11,000 MMR just a few days ago. However, it seems like Fnatic doesn’t really pay that much attention to what’s happening in the pub scene.
Now that Raven is a part of Fnatic, the team is looking better than ever. However, we still don’t know what will happen with Geek Fam, especially after such a heavy loss. It will be really hard for the team to find a proper substitute for Raven because he’s proved himself as one of the best carry players in the region.
This is Fnatic’s current roster from one to five:
- Marc Polo “Raven” Luis Fausto
- Kam “Moon” Boon Seng
- Daryl Koh “iceiceice” Pei Xiang
- Djardel “DJ” Mampuisti
- Anucha “Jabz” Jirawong
