Fnatic re-sign twist as draken gets benched

Fnatic have officially signed over Simon "twist" Eliasson from Red Reserve, the organization announced Tuesday in a press release. This marks the second time that twist has played as a member of Fnatic.

The organization also announced the benching of William "draken" Sundin.

In a press release, the Swedish organization admitted that the draken's "untapped potential might not have been met."

"Although this was not the best fit for me in terms of timing," said Draken in a press release, "I am excited to try new things and look forward to whatever my future brings me."

This is the second roster change Fnatic has made since their elimination from the New Legends Stage of the London Major, the first being Robin "flusha" Rönnquist's departure. London was the first time the team failed to make the playoffs of a Major.
