According to the imagery of a new teaser released by Fnatic's General Manager, IN Elroy "Noname" Pinto, EU Fnatic EU will be announcing a new Dota 2 team within the coming days. In line with Fnatic's tradition of hyping new recruits and running publicity campaigns, the enigmatic video in not explicit about which team will be announced or even the exact context of the game. However, gathered from the clues of "the game of five", as well as the blurred imagery of the Dire side in Dota 2, it is abundantly clear that this new roster will represent Fnatic from said game.

Currently, Fnatic is represented from a European roster composed of IL Tal 'Fly' Aizik, SE Adrian 'Era' Kryeziu, DE Kai 'H4nn1' Hanbueckers and DK Johan 'N0tail' Sundstein, with former Fnatic.HoN player FI Kalle 'Trixi' Saarinen playing as a stand-in. The fate of this team, in light of current events, is unknown, whether the team will revert back to Heroes of Newerth, leave Fnatic, or even work as of of two teams representing the powerhouse organization. Recent small tournaments have indicated a drastic increase in the team's capability in the Dota 2 scene.

Rumored to be joining Fnatic is US POTM bottom , due in large to their significant rise to prominence as a newer North American juggernaut. Although the team failed to win The Defense #2, they did make a large impression upon the scene by thoroughly dominating more experienced teams, including winners of The International, UA Natus Vincere , who they swept out of the tournament.
