The 2023 Dota Pro Circuit proved to be a difficult event for some of the most well-known organizations within the scene. Fnatic's stacked roster, consisting of Gabbi, Armel, kpii, DJ, and Jaunuel, found itself in the second division, causing the organization to temporarily abandon the Dota 2 scene.
A relegation was not in the cards when the organization participated in The International 2022 just a few months ago.
Fnatic's experience during the event was not that great, as they finished the tournament tied for 13th place. Shortly after, the organization expanded its membership with notable players from the region, but nothing went according to plan.
Fnatic's latest iteration didn't win a single series until the final day of SEA DPC tour one, a remarkable performance considering that two new rosters, Execration and Geek Slate, were taking over the region.
Fnatic has been around since its very beginning, although it's the first time that they've decided to leave the game.
Fnatic's tweet underscores the team's long-term existence, and the organization's official announcement makes it sound like the team may be out for the entirety of the 2023 DPC season. This could quickly change if Fnatic can land a beneficial contract with a division one team.
