Fnatic Benches flusha, ScreaM to Stand-in for ESL One New York
Fnatic benched Robin "flusha" Rönnquist and revealed Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom as its new stand-in for ESL One New York.
The decision comes after Fnatic failed to qualify for the Champions Stage and lost the coveted "Legends" status.

It's not known whether ScreaM will continue to play with the team after New York. The post by Fnatic explains that more news will come in October.
"The team will be playing at ESL One New York from Sept. 26-30. More news concerning the future of Fnatic Counter-Strike will be established in October as we look further into the future and towards IEM Katowice, the next Major in February 2019."
Fnatic finished tied for 9-11 place at the FACEIT Major: London and failed to grab the Legends status for the first time in the organization's history. Flusha will remain on the bench as Fnatic reviews his status on the team.
