Godsent was the most logical landing spot for the Swedish rifler, who turned down an inquiry from OpTic Gaming, according to sources. Fnatic has reportedly looked to Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson and Maikil “Golden” Selim to replace dennis and Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer Gustafsson on the active roster. Olofmeister has reportedly joined FaZe Clan, replacing Fabien “kioShiMa” Fiey.
This group of roster moves comes just six months after Fnatic reassembled one of the most decorated rosters in Counter-Strike history. Following the reunion, Fnatic failed to win a tournament and often finished in the quarterfinals of most international tournaments. Fnatic’s best finish, second place, came at DreamHack Summer against a diluted field. The team exited the PGL Krakow Major in the quarterfinals last month.
Godsent will play Mousesports on Tuesday to begin Season 6 of ESL Pro League, where dennis will likely make his debut. The ESL roster lock went into effect last Friday, leaving teams with only two roster moves for the duration of the season. Six of the top teams from both Europe and North America will meet at the finals in Odense, Denmark starting Dec. 5.
Godsent did not initially respond to request for comment.
