Fnatic’s CS:GO roster is complete and raring to go ahead of IEM Cologne 2023.

Fnatic has announced two new signings to its CS:GO roster to finalize its playing five. Christopher "dexter" Nong and Aurélien "afro" Drapier join the team with the former as the team’s new In-Game Leader.

Dexter completed nearly two years on MOUZ before he parted ways with the org last month. Replacing dexter on the MOUZ roster is former GamerLegion player, Kamil "siuhy" Szkaradek.

The Australian shotcaller will now lead the Fnatic CS:GO Roster bringing his expertise of leading a diverse team such as MOUZ to help build the Fnatic roster. Having played for orgs such as Renegades, Grayhound in Australia before moving on to more international teams, Dexter is extremely familiar with the complexities and difficulties arising from leading an international team. 

Joining him on the Fnatic lineup is Aurélien "afro" Drapier. Formerly of Team LDLC, the 24-year-old French player does not have the same level of experience, but he holds immense firepower to boost the Fnatic lineup. 

With these roster changes, Fnatic’s CS:GO roster is as follows:

  • Freddy "⁠KRIMZ⁠" Johansson
  • Fredrik "⁠roeJ⁠" Jørgensen
  • William "⁠mezii⁠" Merriman
  • Christopher "⁠dexter⁠" Nong
  • Aurélien "⁠afro⁠" Drapier
  • UJamie "⁠keita⁠" Hall (coach)
  • Nico "⁠nicoodoz⁠" Tamjidi (benched)

Fnatic will next compete at IEM Cologne 2023 where they will be up against some of the best teams from across the world. The tournament, often called the Cathedral of Counter-Strike, features a million-dollar prize pool and has 24 teams in competition. There are three stages to the tournament, more information about which is available here.

The tournament is one of the final S-tier events before the launch of CS2 later this year. Valve has regularly released multiple updates to CS2 beta allowing users to improve their playing experience and the playability of the game.
