According to Flickshot.fr and with collaboration from the Rush B Podcast, Fnatic is set to replace Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson with the addition of Richard "Xizt" Landstrom. Furthermore,
Xizt joined FaZe back in April after it was announced that olofmeister would be taking a leave of absence due to personal issues.
Initially, Xizt was prepped to join Fnatic back in March to replace Malik "Golden" Salim as the IGL. However, after event victories at IEM Katowice and WESG, Fnatic decided to cancel that plan and continue with Golden as the IGL.
Since then, Fnatic has not shown this previous form of winning events and has underperformed at multiple major events. This includes falling in the semifinals at DreamHack Masters Marseille, failing in the quarterfinals at IEM Sydney and not qualifying for the EPL Dallas event last weekend.
With Xizt set to join Fnatic, it will be the first time since 2012 that the Swedish player will represent the Fnatic organization and the first time in CS:GO.
