Markus "pronax" Wallsten has stepped down from Fnatic's roster following their eighth place finish at the most recent Major.

G2 Esports' Dennis "dennis" Edman has taken pronax's place on Fnatic, while Philip "aizy" Aistrup moved from Team Dignitas to G2 to fill the hole that dennis' departure created.

In his time with Fnatic, pronax led the team to three Major titles and was a key part of their lineup during their dominance from late 2014 to 2015.

Prior to pronax's decision to leave the team, Fnatic had not changed their roster since June 2014, when they added Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson and Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer. The move reunites dennis with the duo, as all three played in LGB eSports prior to KRIMZ and olofmeister's move to Fnatic.

"We respect his [pronax] decision, but we also came to the conclusion that it is meaningless trying to repair our in-game struggles when we are not committing together for the upcoming year," said Jesper "JW" Wecksell, Fnatic's AWPer said in a press release.

"We are really confident with this lineup, flusha will take over the in-game leading role and we are ready to really really work hard again to be back at the top."

Although dennis' departure from G2 comes as a surprise, his replacement, aizy, has been a stand-out player for Dignitas over the past few months. His move to G2 adds yet another dangerous all-star player to their ever-improving roster.
