Official Roster Announcement: Changes to our LCS line-up

Today we are sad to announce the departure of top-laner Yeong-Jin “Gamsu” Noh from our League of Legends roster.

Gamsu has been with the team for 7 months, joining alongside his Korean counterpart and friend, Dayun “Spirit” Lee, at the start of the 2016 season. Together, the team battled against the odds to reach the Grand Final of IEM Katowice as well as clinching 3rd place in the LCS Spring Split. 


It comes with a heavy heart that we must part ways with Gamsu. However, it has become clear to us that our organisational goals and ideals are not aligned. At Fnatic, our priority is performing at the highest level whilst simultaneously securing the best possible future for our organisation. Following an evaluation with the whole team, Fnatic and Gamsu have mutually decided to part ways. Our management team will work hard to support Gamsu, making sure he can continue his career as a professional gamer, wherever he decides to go.

Thank you Gamsu for everything you have done for the team! We wish you the best of luck in the future.

Whilst we say goodbye to Gamsu, we’d like to welcome Mateusz "Kikis" Szkudlarek to the Fnatic League of Legends roster. Previously a member of G2, Kikis joins Fnatic after stepping down from G2’s starting lineup earlier in the Split. As an LCS Champion and strong all-round player, we are confident that Kikis can bring a new dimension and extra energy to the team. Kikis joins the team alongside our substitute Jorge “Werlyb” Casanovas. The pair will work together to ensure that we are in the best possible state come playoffs. 

You can read Kikis' statement below and follow him on Twitter here.

I am back, again, and this time I am not missing worlds. I am glad to be given this opportunity and I will do everything in my power to make sure we get there. I look forward to working with both the players and the staff of FNATIC.

I will work with Werlyb onwards to see how much this situation can benefit the team and both of us. I have changed my approach to the sub situation because the conditions at FNATIC can’t be compared to those at G2. The background is different and I know where I stand from the start. After I try things with a positive attitude I will be able to better judge substitutions like this. After all, everyone is here to succeed and to try and be as good as possible!

Finlay “Quaye” Stewart, LoL Team Manager

It was no easy decision to part ways with Gamsu. He is not only an incredibly gifted player, but also our friend and confidant. Working together with Gamsu for 7 months was a pleasure, which unfortunately has come to an end today. Rest assured that this decision was made in the best interest of the team and the organisation going forward. Myself and the rest of the LoL team are incredibly excited to be working with Kikis and Werlyb. Both players are extremely hungry to prove themselves to the rest of the world.

Going forward, the FNATIC League of Legends team’s focus will be funneled entirely on performing, with winning the Summer Split being our number one priority. I believe this line up has the drive and talent to do so, with LCS and LCK Champions in every position.

We would like to thank G2 for facilitating this deal, remaining professional and reasonable throughout the process. Stay tuned for more announcements to follow and thanks to all our fans for your continued support! #AlwaysFnatic

    So Werlyb doesn't pose a threat for his starter spot?

    It is sad indeed that Gamsu has left. But Kikis has been great this season, and I do hope he will find himself in good synergy with our loved awesome jungler Spirit, cause I think these two can make wonders. :)

    If you like you can me insane man for testifying and coming open to the public to glorify and rain praises upon the only one EXPERIENCED,ACCESSIBLE,TRUSTED AND MOST POWERFULLY spell caster called Ajayi Ololo for helping me use his reliable and sincere spell work to bring back to me my lovely wife after 8 months of separations. I and my wife had a misunderstanding that her family has to tell her to get a divorce which she did. Little did i know that she is really my wife and my woman. I know you reading this testimony will ask how did i know she is my woman and wife even after divorce. i get to know this because i always think of her anytime i find myself to be alone in the house and anytime i have that thinking i will always want to drink to forget about her, even with the drinks to clear her out of my brain the reflections of her beauty will always flash through my mind that i dont know what to do to get her back home. On thinking how to bring her back home for us to leave happily together and call off the divorce i went to marriage advisers and also register for how you need to get your broken marriage restored back. I spent two week on the seminar were we were always thought about the steps to take to restore a broken marriage back but to me it seems not to be helpful in anyway. my wife dont longer pick my calls and never wanted to see me again, and this was the woman that use to love,care,respect and adore me before. Her decision that resulted to our divorce was just a misup that could be easily be corrected after much apology to her that it will never repeat itself again. I know she getting to know that i was having affair outside our marriage is enough but my wife i use to know could not has gone so far even with the conviction of her family to do it. As for me i has a second a thought to know that there must be some enemies that must have been manipulating my wife against me and with that i need a help to rid of the enemy that could have entered her to make end our marriage even with much plead from my own side. on the point for searching and looking for help my mother said there is a man that she will refer me to help me. That it means am still in love with my wife since you are still thinking about her. On hearing this from my own mother helping me out on the adventure to get help to return back home my wife,i was so glad and happy. I felt so shock on the help she suggest that i should email ([email protected]) for help that he is a spell caster that i know for help and reliable work because it was this same spell caster that gave me drugs to be healed and cured of cancer and taken care off. not on till my lovely mother told me that spell casting is harmless i never believed. She stressed on that the only spell caster that i can get my help is Dr Ajayi Ololo that uses his spell casting to make your lover realize the love you have for her and to kill and destroy any human begin involved on the process i never knew there is a man like Dr Ajayi Ololo that is been talked about all over the states and countries.
