ALEX & mezii in talks to join fnatic - 1pv.fr report

Former British Cloud9 duo, in-game leader Alex McMeekin and rifler William “⁠mezii⁠” Merriman, are in talks to join Fnatic, according to a report by French website 1pv.fr.

Fnatic’s CS:GO lineup has been depleted to just three players after the removals of the captain Maikil “Golden” Selim and one of its longest-standing members Jesper “JW” Wecksell in July, following a disappointing run of results in 2021. The organization said on JW’s benching that it’s looking forward to building an international team, moving away from its traditional all-Swedish lineup.

ALEX and mezii were both parts of C9’s international project that was branded the Colossus by its former general manager Henry “HenryG” Greener. The team was fully assembled in October 2020, but Cloud9 decided to move away from CS:GO in March 2021 as the team failed to make a splash in the competitive scene. ALEX has been a free agent since April, when he stated that would access all his options, including a potential move to Riot Games’ FPS VALORANT.

fnatic could look like this:
Freddy "⁠KRIMZ⁠" Johansson
Ludvig "⁠Brollan⁠" Brolin
Jack "⁠Jackinho⁠" Ström Mattsson
Alex "ALEX" McMeekin
William "mezii" Merriman

Andreas "⁠Samuelsson⁠" Samuelsson (coach)
Maikil "⁠Golden⁠" Selim (benched)
Jesper "⁠JW⁠" Wecksell (benched)
