Fnatic announced the acquisition of former Cloud9 player – Yasin “Nisqy” Dinçerhas – as their midlaner, pending Riot Games’ approval. The move marks Nisqy’s shift back to where he started: PunchLine Esport Club in the LEC.
Fnatic announced Nisqy’s return via Twitter.
Javier Zafra, Fnatic’s Team Director for League of Legends, welcomed the former Fnatic Academy player.
“Nisqy is a top quality midlaner,” he said. “He has the perfect mix of skill and personality that will improve the team a lot for 2021 and beyond… We’re thrilled.”
Nisqy’s true start to his career was marked by his 2016 Fnatic Academy stint, after which he moved to NA Team EnVyUs in November 2017. After rolling the ball in NA, he moved back to the EU with Splyce in 2018 for a year, before finally embarking on his stellar journey with Cloud9 in 2019.
C9’s November 16th announcement of Nisqy’s departure was in stark contrast to their September announcement, stating the retention of their squad for 2021, especially given Nisqy’s performance in the past year with the team. His LCS 2020 Spring performance had paved the way for C9’s season record of 17-1, and his personal season record of 56-16.
While C9 lost Nisqy, they signed Perkz for a reported buyout of almost $5 million, allowing them to maintain an all-star squad. There are also rumors that Nemesis may be headed to the LCS.
Any unforeseen circumstances aside, Nisqy’s move-approval from Riot Games is as good as confirmed.
