The transfer of William "mezii" Merriman from Fnatic to Vitality came one step closer today with Fnatic announcing the departure of the Englishman from the roster.
- As you may have heard, William ‘Mezii’ Merriman will be leaving our team to further his career elsewhere, Fnatic tweeted before acknowledging his contributions to the roster during the past two years.
The now former Fnatic rifler is rumored to replace Emil "Magisk" Reif on Team Vitality. The Dane is expected to follow in Danny "zonic" Sørensen's footprints to Team Falcons in the near future.
In the second part of the tweet, Fnatic also stated its ambitions for the future.
- We have significant ambitions in CS2 and have a lot of work ahead of us to build a world-class roster that can reach the absolute top. We will not rest in this mission and know this will require investment, which we’re prepared and ready to make. We are working with the central teams who work across our top Valorant and League rosters, to support these efforts as we seek a replacement and begin the path of upgrading our roster in the coming months.
25-year-old William "mezii" Merriman joined Fnatic in August 2021. Before that, he represented teams such as Endpoint, Cloud9, and GamerLegion.
Fnatic is set to compete in the BetBoom Dacha qualifier starting from the 11th of November.
The remaining four players on Fnatic are:
Christopher "dexter" Nong
Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson
Fredrik "roeJ" Jørgensen
Aurélien "afro" Drapier
