DeKay Mailbag Part 2: The Fnatic Situation, MIBR Losing Steam, and Options for Twistzz


This is Part 2 of DeKay's monthly mailbag series where he answers questions regarding Counter-Strike: Global Offensive sent in on Twitter.

There has been interest in both from what I've been told but the two of them will have offers in Valorant as well to mull over. It comes down to who they want to play with and what game they want to play, more than anything else.

Their coach and Golden have said on separate occasions that they have no interest in trying to make a six-man roster work. Therefore, since they have been searching for a replacement for a couple of weeks now, I think the best assumption is they are replacing someone on the roster.

I haven't heard anything but that could change in an instant like it usually does. I'm just not sure which direction they would go to make a move. Especially tough since many people are hoping to return to offline play at some point in 2021.

No news, unfortunately. I would love for him to find a solid place to play but the amount of talent within the CIS region has teams holding on to their younger talent over someone like him.

If they aren't talking with the ex-Chaos guys then I have no idea what they're even doing. No rumors just yet, but there is still time before they would need a roster in place.

I don't think that will happen. It looks like the chances of the MIBR team to stay with the organization are getting slimmer each and every day. If that happens, there is no guarantee the roster stays together either. FURIA has to make their move first and then it will probably create a small shuffle of some kind.

From everything I've been told, they are dead set on Fallen and don't plan on deviating from him unless they are forced to. They've been practicing with him for a while now and I don't see how the deal doesn't get done.

At this point, I think ENCE fans should expect them to move away from an all Finnish roster. Everything I've heard thus far points to that happening unless all other opportunities fall through. They likely want to lock down an in-game leader once again and pair them with some international talent.

I have not heard rumors about anything like that happening, but it's not entirely out of the question. From what I've been told, Twistzz will likely join a project that already has a foundation so that he can jump in and immediately provide some impact. That's what he's used to and how he would probably be most valuable.

It's still no guarantee they go with him, but if they do, I have no idea who it will be for. Different sources have said different names, so I don't have anything I can really rely upon. I likely won't know until they do make a change here soon.

I really don't expect it due to the unknown that exists with Valorant. I think almost every pro player there fears the possibility of leaving only watching it explode while they miss out. CS:GO is more or less a known quantity and I don't expect Valorant players to switch to it until both are known quantities. Even then, it will come down to the state of the professional scene.
