Fnatic Signs Febby, InYourDream
Fnatic has signed Kim “Febby” Yong-min and Muhammad Rizky “InYourDream” Anugrah to play on their Dota 2 roster, the organization announced Wednesday.
The two players replace Marc Polo “Raven” Luis Fausto and Nico “eyyou” Barcelon, who were dropped by the organization in November due to a plateau in progress and an inability to find a synergy that kept their play consistent. Additionally, Ng “YamateH” Wei Poong will be acting as a substitute for ESL One Genting, due to the fact that Fnatic has yet to find a suitable replacement for Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho, which is set to kick off on January 6th and will run until the 8th in Genting, Malaysia.
“I am very excited to present our line-up for ESL Genting and with that welcome Febby, InYourDream and Yamateh to the Fnatic family,” wrote Eric “reinnnn” Khor Wei Soon, Fnatic’s Dota 2 team manager, “We’ve been hard at work preparing for 2017 ever since we failed to qualify for the Boston Majors, and we are confident that this group of players have what it takes to represent our region in a respectful fashion on the world stage.”
Hailing from Indonesia, InYourDream comes from local team The Prime Siapa, which he joined back in September of 2016 and helped place 3rd-4th at the Boston Major Southeast Asia Qualifier #2. To say that he has very little tournament experience would not be an exaggeration by any means, Fnatic boasts that the rotating mid and carry player has one of the highest MMRs in Southeast Asia and should not be underestimated.
However, at 23 years old, Febby has a significantly more storied career. Febby started playing Dota 2 in 2012 with Kaipi, and went on to play for MVP Phoenix in early 2015. He helped his team take a respectable 5th-6th place at The International 6 and The Manila Major 2016, but most recently placed 9th-16th at The Boston Major 2016.
While the roster is still incomplete, here is the lineup that Fnatic will be taking to ESL One Genting:
|Yee Fung “Mushi” Chai||Mid | Carry|
|Muhammad Rizky “InYourDream” Anugrah||Mid | Carry|
|Chong Xin “Ohaiyo” Khoo||Offlane|
|Yong-min “Febby” Kim||Roaming Support|
|Ng “YamateH” Wei Poong||Hard Support | Substitute|
