Fnatic has finally decided to put the rumors to bed by confirming their 2022 LEC roster.
Of course, in typical LEC style for the 2022 off-season, rather than a flashy video, or an epic montage, Fnatic opted to announce it via a “TwitLonger”. It’s not a conventional way to announce your LEC roster, but when the roster has been known for about a month via leaks, you may as well.
Obviously, this was part of a wider “leak” joke played by Fnatic. It’s on the nose, it’s point fun at themselves, and, we’re fine with it. It’s cringe, that’s for sure. But this is a LEC side in 2021, so why not lean into the cringe.
The full Fnatic roster
- Top: Wunder
- Jungle: Razork
- Mid: Humanoid
- Bot Lane: Upset
- Support: Hylissang
The new roster sees Fnatic bring in three new players to join their 2021 bot lane of Upset and Hylissang. Wunder joins Fnatic from main rival G2 Esports, as Fnatic looks to bring his wealth of MMO experience into their top lane. Razork joins from Misfits, while Humanoid joins from LEC Champions MAD Lions. Fnatic also confirmed that former mid laner Nisqy will remain with the roster as a sub for 2022.
The new Fnatic roster will link up in Berlin at Fnatic’s new “state-of-the-art” training facility. Wunder and Razork will join Fnatic pending Riot approval now, while Humanoid will have to wait until January 1.
Overall, Fnatic looks to have found a solid roster for 2022, although they’ll need to resolve some outside influences that appeared to affect their World's 2021 run. It’s going to be an interesting 2022 for the LEC. With a new look G2 Esports, a defending double-LEC title winner, and a host of new roster. Fnatic will be in for a fight in 2022, and it appears, on paper, that they’ve got a good bunch.
