Fate has teased that BEAN has not yet reached the level of becoming an official Fnatic player.
BEAN sends best wishes to Fnatic teammates at Worlds 2022 after parting with North America
On his personal Twitter account, BEAN, Fnatic’s reserve AD carry, announced that he was returning home yesterday (October 5) and will not be playing any matches at the 2022 World Championship. With only one sub per team allowed, this means that Fnatic chose to support RHUCKZ – who has an impressive KDA of 22.0 and hasn’t dropped a single time in their opening two games in the Play-In Stage – instead of BEAN.
However, BEAN still left an impression after a few days of staying in North America thanks to winning the highest ranking on the Champions Queue server with 2,146 LP. Unfortunately, this AD carry no longer has the opportunity to improve his performance and has just been surpassed in the rankings by the mid lane of the University of Maryville, APA. It can be seen that BEAN has worked hard to practice and show how capable he is when he surpasses many names in the world of LoL such as DRX’s Deft and Kingen, Cloud9’s Zven, Team Liquid’s CoreJJ, etc.
At last year’s Worlds held in Iceland, BEAN made his professional debut after Upset’s confusing and unexpected absence. By this year, it seemed that BEAN would replace Fnatic’s number one AD carry due to COVID-19 but Upset quickly recovered and played all the matches in the past Play-In Round.
Hylissang, the official support who missed Fnatic’s first two games, also returned from Day 2 of the Warm-Up Round and contributed to the first place in Group A and the team straight to the Group Stage. Fnatic will prioritize using RHUCKZ as a backup for the tough matches in Group A – where the LEC’s 3rd seed will face all the top teams including T1, EDward Gaming and C9.
Fnatic will play at the opening match of the official Group Stage of Worlds 2022 at Hulu Theater, New York against C9 at 04:00 on October 8. This is also the first time the two teams have had the opportunity to try after Rift Rivals 2019 and currently the head-to-head score is 6-6. As for BEAN – who played all of Fnatic China’s matches in the Superliga last season – will return to Europe to prepare for the 2023 season scheduled to start in mid-January next year.
