Fnatic joins the HCS fight
The new Fnatic Halo esports roster consists of:
- Torez “Envore” Broyles
- Joseph “Juziro” Bartholomay
- Juliano “Sceptify” Sadiku
- Track “SuperCC” Cavuto
- Casey “Strobe” Hebert (Coach)
Fnatic announced the signing of trainer Casey “Strobe” Hebert in late 2021. The team also spent a lot of time scouting potential rosters at the HCS Kickoff Major in Raleigh. According to Fnatic, this roster consists of “a promising young group of players with an impressive focus on positivity, teamwork and a willingness to learn and adapt”.
Shortly after the announcement, Fnatic Team Director Colin “CoJo” Johnson spoke more about their new Halo Infinite roster. “They seemed to fit perfectly with what we are building. Their ceiling is so high and I can’t wait to see what they can accomplish with time, resources and the help of our coach Strobe,” CoJo said on a team Notice.
The future of Fnatic in Halo
Like many Halo Infinite rosters towards the end of 2021, when large organizations like Fnatic are embracing pre-built rosters, the team gives them the resources and opportunity to improve. But in this case, the organization’s success in other esports such as League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, VALORANT and Rainbow Six Seige has the roster to follow. Some pressure is also coming from the legacy Halo Fnatic roster, which placed fourth at the 2011 MLG National Championship. In the end, time will tell if Fnatic will reach those heights again, now over ten years later.
