iceiceice, Jabz and MP join Fnatic

Daryl Koh "iceiceice" Pei Xiang, Anucha "Jabz" Jirawong and Pyo "MP" No-a have joined the ranks of Fnatic, the team announced today on Twitter.

This comes in the wake of Jabz and iceiceice's recent departure from Mineski Pro Gaming, whose disappointing run at last month's The International 8 inspired a series of roster changes. This also marks Korean Carry MP's arrival back on the scene after his departure from Team Secret just over a year ago.
