Last week, Fnatic announced on Facebook that coach Adam Erwann ‘Adam / 343’ Shah would be filling in for Johan ‘pieliedie’ Åström at the Starladder Minor. The reason for the switch according to their Facebook post was to further develop the team’s cohesion.
Fnatic did in fact go on to place top 4, but finished 3rd-4th after a 2-1 defeat to world OpTic Gaming, the eventual champions. Almost immediately after being knocked out Adam tweeted “Won’t be playing anymore, don’t worry guys!!”, ending suspicions that pieliedie had been kicked from the team.
