Abed to Fnatic - Adam as the new coach

Abed is the new mid player of Fnatic, while Xcalibur stepped down from the active roster. Adam joined back the organization as the new coach.

Fnatic announced that Steve "Excalibur" Ye is no longer part of the active roster, but will remain with the team in a sub position.

Despite my short stay in Fnatic’s active roster my experience in the team has been invaluable. I have learned so much from my teammates during our replay sessions. I will definitely try to find a new team to play with again and I want to thank everyone in Fnatic for the experience.
— Xcalibur

Xcalibur has been replaced by Abed Azel L. Yusop. The Filipino player left Digital Chaos two weeks ago, after the team failed to qualify for any Valve event in the new Dota Pro Circuit. Even if young he is the first player ever to have achieved 10,000k solo MMR, and participated at TI7 with DC.


Fnatic also reported the return of Adam “Adam” Shah who will be the new coach of the team in place of Ahmad “ADTR” Syazwan. Adam played for Fnatic during The International 6 in a support position - also thanks to his contribution the team obtained the top 4 and a $1,453,932 prize.

Hyped to be part of FNATIC again. There’s a long road ahead of us and I’m looking forward to the ride!
— Adam
