AD Carry: Martin “Rekkles” Larsson (currently at Fnatic)

Fnatic’s ever-present AD Carry is the only player on this list who hasn’t transferred since the Summer Split final in 2015. From then, Rekkles has gone on to win two European titles, take part in countless playoffs, and reach a World Championship final. He has also since eclipsed the likes of sOAZ and YellOwStaR in becoming the holder of most games played for Fnatic over the course of their incredible history.

Rekkles was undeterred by being compelled to give up his position on the roster to Bwipo in 2018 due to drastic meta changes and has returned to being a reliable carry for Fnatic, cementing his place as Europe’s best marksman. For the first time in a while, the Swedish ADC heads into playoffs with Fnatic as second (or even third) favourites, but their remarkable form heading into Saturday’s game illustrates that Rekkles and his team can still challenge Origen and G2 Esports for the title.

Support: Bora “YellOwStaR” Kim (currently at Team-LDLC)

YellOwStaR was the third member of Fnatic’s 2015 roster to leave for North America following their Summer Split triumph and impressive Worlds run. In this case, the support player headed to Team SoloMid for a brief, 6 month stint at the infamous NA organisation, in which he reached the NA LCS Playoff final, but fell short of lifting the trophy.

Not long after departing, YellOwStaR was back with Fnatic to conclude the 2016 season but failed to reach the Summer Split final or qualify for Worlds. As a result, the Frenchman decided it was time to hang up his mouse and keyboard and retire from professional play, taking on the role of Head of Esports at a new esports organisation branched from famous football club Paris Saint-Germain. It was clear that the plan for this team was to qualify for the EU LCS via the Challenger Series, but they failed to qualify for the promotion tournament throughout 2017, and soon disbanded.

Since then, YellOwStaR has been the coach of Team-LDLC, a French organisation that take part in the LFL (French regional league). This year the team won the Spring Playoffs and are now set to take part in the EU Masters tournament that begins next week.

Coach: Luis “Deilor” Sevilla Petit (currently at Movistar Riders)

Deilor was the mastermind behind Fnatic’s 2015 success, becoming the first (and only) coach to receive an EU LCS Weekly MVP award. He continued his role with Fnatic all the way through to the end of 2016 but couldn’t attain the lofty expectations set by the success of the previous roster.

Subsequently, the Fnatic coach looked for a change of scenery and, following a year-long break from the game, took on the position of manager at promising Spanish organisation, Movistar Riders. During Deilor’s tenure, Movistar’s success has been up and down. The team finished runners-up in the 2018 Spring Playoffs and headed to EU Masters to compete among some of the best teams in Europe, however they’ve yet to reach a Spanish final since.
