Fnatic announced today that Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau will be the starter for their upcoming playoff run. Paul “sOAZ” Boyer appeared in a video for the announcement with bandages around his left hand. According to the announcement, he will be undergoing surgery for an undisclosed injury tomorrow, and is expected to be in recovery for at least two weeks.
Although a blow to the team, they still look strong for playoffs. Substitute Top Laner Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau joined the team in January and has been impressive so far, recently starting in two regular season games. In his first match he played Sion, going 1/0/8 in a victory against the Unicorns of Love in Week 8. The next week, he took to the stage and performed well once again. Playing Swain, he recorded two Double Kills as Fnatic beat Giants Gaming.
The team only has a few days to make adjustments and prepare the new lineup. Fnatic faces Team Vitality on Saturday, March 31st.
