Pujan “FNS” Mehta has found himself leading eUnited after a quick roster change was announced earlier today. FNS will be replacing Brandon “Ace” Winn on the starting roster and taking over the in-game leader role while Skyler “Relyks” Weaver is set to take on the main AWP role.
The Canadian player most recently played a brief time with Cloud9 following a quick departure from compLexity. Since then he has been inactive and will be looking to bring his experience as a leader to this young team.
He shared some thoughts with HLTV which can be found below.
“Not competing for the past two-three months has been difficult but refreshing in a sense,” he told HLTV. “It gave me time to reflect on everything that went wrong with C9, but I am happy they found a lineup they are confident in. As for me, I couldn’t be more motivated up to get back in the server and play with this group of talented players. This game has been my life for the past four years, and I can’t wait to show everyone what this team is capable of. I have the complete respect of every player/coach on this team and so far, the organization has shown me nothing but love. That’s all any player can ask for, and I am grateful for this opportunity. For all the people who have consistently supported me, whether that be family, friends, fans, ex-teammates, whoever, I really do appreciate it. Over the last couple of months, I’ve received tons of positive messages, and I’m genuinely thankful for that.“
eUnited’s CS:GO coach Jared “osorandom” Hartman spoke highly of FNS and what he believes he can add to the team.
“He brings leadership qualities which we’ve lacked in the previous rendition of the roster. We’ve seen the impact that he’s had on various teams (such as) Cloud9, compLexity and how he’s helped improve them to the next level,” Hartman said. “Individually, he’s a really good player and will help elevate us to the next level.”
The new lineups first LAN showing will take place at IEM Chicago starting on November 6. The team took down Cloud9 in the online qualifier to earn their place at the event.
