Fnatic officially confirmed their new roster to include Chai “Mushi” Yee Fun, Chong “Ohaiyo” Xin Khoo, Djardel Jicko b. “Chrissy/DJ” Mampusti, Dominik “Black^” Reitmeier and Wai Pern “Net” Lim. The organization has also confirmed the addition of a gaming house for the team, in Malaysia.
The official announcement also confirms several “sightings” of Black^ in Malaysia, over the last two days.
Firstly, we’re delighted to welcome three new players to the Fnatic family. With a great blend of top-level TI competitive and coaching experience as well as long-term friendship, we’re confident that Black^, Net and DJ (formerly Chrissy) will join Mushi and Ohaiyo in driving Fnatic DOTA onwards and upwards on our journey towards TI6.
The organization will be providing the team with as much support as possible: “To give our new line-up the best chance of success and a stable training base for the journey ahead, we’re also delighted to announce that we’ll be setting up a gaming house in Malaysia.”

The previous Malaysian squad, formerly a part of the EHOME organization between January – March 2015, was signed by Fnatic on June 4th.
After being picked up by Fnatic, the squad placed third at the MLG Pro League Finals, at X-Games and eighth at ESL One Frankfurt 2015, where they were eliminated, 2:0, by Team Secret.
During The International 5, Fnatic have failed to advance into the Upper Brackets of the main event, having secured only 4 points during the group stage. They were knocked out of contention by Virtus.Pro from the very first day of the TI5 main event, on August 3rd, in a brutal best-of-one elimination series.
Last week, Fnatic announced that Lee “kYxY” Kong Yang, Siong “JoHnNy” Tait and Fadil “Kecik Imba” bin Mohd Raziff had been released from their Dota 2 squad.
