Fnatic Finalize 2022 LEC Roster With Wunder, Razork, and Humanoid

After weeks of wild rumors and unverified leaks, Fnatic have finally decided to make their 2022 LEC roster official! And, needless to say, there aren’t any surprises whatsoever. This phenomenal line-up has been leaked weeks ago, but it’s still nice to get official confirmation from the folks in charge as one can never be too certain these days.

The former “Kings of Europe” have made three changes to their starting line-up and, frankly, all three of them are flat-out amazing. We have a top lane behemoth who’s been competing at the highest of levels for years, one of the most promising junglers in all of Europe, and arguably the best-performing mid laner in the LEC.

What more could you ask for? Fnatic have knocked it out of the park! There’s just no other way to put it. In fact, we’d argue that this particular line-up has even more potential than the one that came before it which is really saying something. There’s no weak link whatsoever — “just” five exceptional players who happen to be at the peak of their powers. This line-up has all the right tools and weapons to not only contest for a spot at the top but even go the “whole nine yards.”

And, well, we’re bound to be entertained every step of the way, regardless of what eventually ends up happening!

Fnatic | 2022 LEC Line-Up

The following five players will all compete under Fnatic’s banner going forward:

Top Lane: Martin “Wunder” Hansen [formerly of G2 Esports]

Jungle: Iván “Razork” Martín [formerly of Misfits Gaming]

Mid Lane: Marek “Humanoid” Brázda [formerly of MAD Lions]

AD Carry: Elias “Upset” Lipp

Support: Zdravets “Hylissang” Iliev Galabov

Last but certainly not least, we have what can rightfully be deemed as the best bottom lane duo in the LEC — as if Fnatic didn’t already have enough tools and weapons to work with! Upset and Hylissang have a metric ton of synergy and it shows in their play, too. They’re always ready to engage, to make the game-winning play and style over their opponents. And, frankly, they succeed more often than not. It’s a shame they weren’t able to showcase their staggering talent at this year’s Worlds, but if things pan out as expected, they’re all but guaranteed to get another shot come 2022.

By the looks of it, head coach Jakob “YamatoCannon” Mebdi will have an easy job ahead of him: leading a team as stacked as this one shouldn’t prove to be much of a challenge. Certain issues might pop up (as they always do), but with so much experience and skill under one roof, we’re fully confident that Fnatic will be able to weather the storm and emerge even stronger.

If everything goes “according to plan,” Fnatic will not only challenge for the LEC throne but perhaps even ascend it (at least once). Their biggest threat, of course, is Team Vitality, with G2 Esports coming in at a close second. Who’s really better than whom is impossible to predict at this point in time, but one thing’s for certain: the victor will be determined by the slimmest of margins!
