There's a changing of the guard as Daryl 'iceiceice' Koh has officially left Team Fnatic

15:16, 16 Sep 2020

There are big changes coming to team Fnatic's Dota 2 roster as a new update confirms Daryl “iceiceice” Koh won't be renewing his contract. Posting on Twitter, the Dota 2 favourites explained the latest news and how the young star opted not to renew his contract. Koh reportedly made the decision himself after "he gained an interest in playing for another region while extending his break". 

Fnatic thanked iceiceice for his hard work as an integral part of the team since he joined in September 2018. As a competent leader, iceiceice has helped Fnatic climb to the top of Dota 2's Southeast Asia rankings. Not only helping Fnatic earn TI9 qualification, he also secured third at the Stockholm Major, and the team's jaw-dropping winning streak that kicked off 2020.



However, the shocking news doesn't end there. Fnatic also confirmed Nico “eyyou” Barcelon has been released with immediate effect. The latest update comes after support Jabz was replaced by eyyou just weeks ago. This means Barcelon lasted just one week as captain before both sides decided to "mutually" part ways.


Fnatic is hardly recognisable these days following July's swap of Nuengnara “23savage” Teeramahanon for Marc Polo Luis "Raven" Fausto. Whatever is going on, Fnatic is determined to shake up the professional Dota 2 scene and keep surprising us all!
