A successful showing at BLAST was followed shortly by a disappointing performance at IEM Katowice.

After signing the lineup of GODSENT the team still hasn't found a fixed starter after the kick of kRYSTAL.

With Chris, the organization had not come to an agreement regarding a contract and decided against a commitment.
At the last tournament participation, about four weeks ago, FPX secured the tournament victory at Snow Sweet Snow 1 and won the final against Gambit. A great success for the lineup. The ESL Pro League has also been okay so far. In the first duel against Complexity, the team was without a chance, but secured the mandatory victory against Renegades on the second match day.
In the third match of the tournament the team met Heroic and was too weak for the Danish top team on Inferno and Overpass. Thus, BIG and FunPlus Phoenix are 1:2 in games and are already under pressure in this duel. The loser of this duel will probably not make the qualification for the playoffs.
