FPL/FPL-C Recap - Another win for oBo; raz and Katie promoted

Recent FPL-C promotees Duncan "raz" Lee and Kaitlin "Katie" Boop followed oBo in second and third place, respectively. But $2,000 was not the only prize raz won, as he was curiously removed from FPL shortly following his finish.

With controversy brewing on Twitter and Reddit, FACEIT Partnerships Manager Milos "Mikey" Nedeljkovic had the following to say on the situation:

And re-added back earlier this morning.

There were legit reasons for a demote, but also legit reasons to stay.

It was our mistake to demote him like this and some players (and himself) managed to change our minds afterwards to give him more time, which i hope he will use well as he did recently.

Just to clarify further: Is a bit of a case of 50+ NA FPL players giving feedback on him, which was given over X period of time, while he started playing a lot better recently, making many of that feedback potentially outdated and we made an oversight here. We will gather fresh one now and see how it goes, but his win/rate currently goes a lot in his favour.

The player will have plenty of time to play FPL-C, as he was forced to step down from MDL team Zone because he is only fifteen years-old.
