Fnatic and GODSENT have both undergone massive changes to their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive rosters, with the teams swapping multiple players from their starter lineups and several players having their positions shifted within their respective organizations.

From Fnatic we see Robin “flusha” Ronnquist, Lars “KRiMZ” Freddy and Jesper “JW” Weckswell transfer over to GODSENT for reasons vaguely described as issues that gradually became too much for the team to overcome.

“Being together in a team for al ong period means that small issues can easily turn into bigger issues,” said Sven “Lepertum” Van Herck, “These issues can then weed their way into fundamental team dynamics, affecting the chemistry needed for success.”

Lepertum went on to compare their recent issues with what the team experienced during 2010, which inevitably led to Ninjas in Pyjamas being reformed by Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund and Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg later in 2012. While Fnatic struggled to resolve the problems that were interfering with the team as a whole, it was soon understood that a drastic change was needed.

“When we realised that a solution wasn’t possible within Fnatic, we started looking at other possibilities that would give all players the best option for success moving forward,” Lepertum continued, “Both parties expressed the desire to stay within Fnatic and as things progressed the most viable outcome presented itself in the form of former Fnatic player Pronax, and his team, GODSENT.”

Both flusha and JW joined Fnatic back in August of 2013 when the organization acquired Epsilon’s former lineup. KRiMZ was later signed to the roster approximately one year later in June after it was apparent that TEAMGLOBAL would be unable to take off, which caused the team to disband entirely just days later.

In a TwitLonger post penned by GODSENT co-owner and CEO Toms Martin, it was said that all three players will become co-founders and shareholders of the organization alongside Andreas “znajder” Lindberg.

Taking their leave from GODSENT are Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson and Simon “twist” Eliasson, who helped form the roster in April. Neither organization explained what compelled GODSENT to release their players from the lineup, with znajder simply stating that the they wanted to play with a new roster.

John “wenton” Eriksson, who joined Fnatic in April, will be moved to the starting lineup from his substitute position to actively fill what would otherwise be an empty slot on the team.
