Fnatic will always be the team that all eyes of esports enthusiasts will be on, regardless of the game. Their rosters need to be absolutely top-notch and give fans the feeling that they can expect good results from them. With VCT Stage 2 fast approaching, the organization had little time to find worthy replacements for Magnum and BraveAF. However, no one can say they failed, as the two newcomers are definitely some strong talents.

Who Are Alfajer & Enzo?

Fnatic didn't have an easy time at the end of Stage 1. Not only were they exposed to the drama caused by BraveAF's controversial statements (which forced the organization to suspend him), but Magnum also got benched right after the VCT Masters. Luckily for them, they had Alfajer and Enzo (formerly known as Fearoth) on hand, and they will now represent the team during VCT Stage 2.

Alfajer

Emir Ali "Alfajer" Beder is a Turkish player who hasn't yet achieved much success on the international stage, but it looks like he will now have the opportunity to do so now. This gentleman is only 16 years old, making him the youngest player in the tournament. However, despite his young age, he can boast many achievements on the Turkish Valorant scene as a former representative of Surreal Esports. Fun fact – he almost qualified for the VCT Stage 2 through the EMEA Challengers Promotion tournament with his former team, but they lost the final match to BIG.

Enzo "Enzo" Mestari is actually a pretty well-known figure in Valorant esports. Besides the fact that many of you know him from Team Alliance, he played with Fnatic before during the VCT Masters as a replacement for BraveAF. He is one of those players who may not have had his moment yet, but everyone knows it's coming sooner or later.

The decision to pick up Enzo was straightforward as we had the luxury of being with him and watching him play before and during Masters, Reykjavik. His main strengths are in his support skills, both in and out of the game. He is the rare kind that still manages to put up numbers whilst being the teammate you wish for. An experienced, "secondary-IGL" type player is something we've wanted to have in the team for a while. We’re looking forward to working with Enzo to flesh out that role to add depth to the squad.
