Hylissang of the MAD Lions had a near-perfect start to the 2023 LEC Winter Season, contrary to his previous team Fnatic. Following the conclusion of the Winter Season, the support player commented on Fnatic's challenges in the competition.
In an interview with Tom Matthiesen on February 8, the Bulgarian pointed out that current Fnatic players aren't playing as a group, rather as a group of individuals.
"It appears that the players aren't bonding together." Hylissand explained. "They're not a team." They're just individuals working on issues on their own.
When he was on the roster, the Bulgarian also talked a bit about Fnatic back then. While the squad did not exactly know "what was not working out and how to fix things." From his perspective, it's much worse now, and it's also harder to pinpoint the exact issue with the team.
When it comes to League of Legends, Hylissang stressed that opening up and having direct communication is crucial, especially in a professional team.
Fnatic won only two games and finished ninth in the 2023 LEC Winter Season. As a result, the team had not qualified for the 2023 LEC Winter Groups, and will return to action at the beginning of the 2023 LEC Spring Split.
On the other hand, Hylissang and MAD Lions finished in second place behind Team Vitality. Their first opponent will be Astralis in the next stage of the competition.
The LEC will resume on Saturday, February 11.
