Fnatic have reportedly bought out Martin “Wunder” Nordahl Hansen from G2 Esports and have, therefore, finalized their 2022 line-up! This immensely talented Dane needs no introduction, although it’s fair to say that a good chunk of the community doesn’t hold him in as high regard as was the case a few years back.
Simply put: Wunder didn’t play all that well throughout 2021, but the same can be said for the rest of his teammates as well. His Twitter game was a lot more engaging than the things he did on the Summoner’s Rift which, obviously, wasn’t a good look.
He’ll replace Adam “Adam” Maanane who’ll be joining Team BDS for the 2022 competitive season. To call this an unexpected series of developments wouldn’t even begin to cut it! Still, we’ve become accustomed to high profile signings and mind-blowing twists from both G2 and Fnatic, so this should really come as no surprise.
A Truly Spectacular Line-Up
With Wunder as their top laner, Fnatic have basically rounded their starting five-man line-up in the absolute best possible way. He’s arguably the best LEC top laner of all time, and while his play did fluctuate over the years he is no doubt an absolute phenom and is one of the few Western tops capable of rubbing shoulders with the LPL and LCK giants.
Well, at least when he’s motivated enough to give it his all.
One could go even further and say that Fnatic have, in a way, won the off-season. They didn’t bring in Luka “Perkz” Perković and Barney “Alphari” Morris, but the line-up they’ll field is by no means weaker or less capable. Iván “Razork” Martín, Marek “Humanoid” Brázda, Elias “Upset” Lipp, and Zdravets “Hylissang” Iliev Galabov are all astoundingly talented and will no doubt enter 2022 swinging for the fences.
This line-up has all the right tools and players to not only contest for the LEC throne but even claim it. It won’t come easy, of course, but one quick glance at their roster is all that is necessary for one to understand just how dangerous they’re going to be once they get on the same page. There’s no weak link, no rookie, no exploitable flaw. They’ll live and die by the sword — much like the many Fnatic line-ups of yore — but they’ll no doubt put on a show every time they step foot on stage to compete!
