Fnatic Confirms Addition of Xizt in Place of Lekr0

Richard "Xizt" Landstrom has joined Fnatic and is replacing Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson, the team confirmed Friday. The move makes way for Olof "Olofmeister" Kajbjer, who came back to FaZe Clan after taking time off for personal reasons.

Xizt said in a news release that he is "thrilled joining Fnatic."

The former Ninjas in Pyjamas player for almost six years will rejoin Fnatic after he left the organization to join NiP to form its legendary roster in CS:GO. Previously Xizt played for Fnatic in Counter Strike 1.6 from 2010 to 2012, where Fnatic won various tournaments at the end of Counter Strike 1.6. Xizt had been playing with FaZe for the last month in place of Olofmeister.

Lekr0, on the other hand, has been removed from the active Fnatic roster and is now in the substitute position. Fnatic will "further explore his options for the future," according to the release.
