fnatic opgiver ikke 1.6 endnu
fnatic fortsætter med at tro på Counter-Strike 1.6, selvom deres kaptajn,
Richard 'Xizt' Landström tidligere i dag forlod fnatic til fordel for Ninjas in Pyjamas og Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Det er knap to uger siden fnatic igen kunne stå øverst på podiet, da de til GameGune kunne besejre Natus Vincere i kampen om guldet.
Alligevel har Xizt i dag valgt at forlade fnatic for at spille CS:GO med NiP. Ét valg, som fnatic tydeligvis er kede af, men de støtter deres tidligere kaptajn i hans beslutning, fortæller Patrik 'cArn' Sättermon:
"Richard joined Fnatic in late 2010 and even though there were many changes over time, he stayed loyal to the team and continued growing and improving both as a player and as a person. He has had an amazing run with Fnatic, starting with DreamHack winter victory and later on defending that title. When I retired he became team captain and lead Fnatic to become the best team in 2012 with five consecutive victories: Copenhagen Games, Fnatic Counter-Strike League, Esport SM, DreamHack Summer and GameGune 2012. It's sad to see him go now, but he wants to continue his pro-gaming career in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and we as a team are not ready to make that switch just yet. We will continue playing the game we love, Counter-Strike 1.6, and want to wish Richard all the best in his future.We also want to thank him for all the time and dedication that he has put into Fnatic."
Xizt ønsker hans tidligere holdkammerater held og lykke i fremtiden og tror på, de forbliver i deres gode form:
"My time in Fnatic can't be described as anything else than great. I have played in Fnatic for over one and a half years and I am very happy and proud of what we accomplished, even though we had our rough patches, we still had a lot of fun and in the end we came out strong. I heard a lots of rumors about Fnatic before I joined that it’s the best organization and you will always be treated good and I can really say that Fnatic is one of the best when it comes to eSport. I have never had any troubles when playing in Fnatic, they have all been very helpful towards me and I have only good things to say. It's now time for me to move on with my career as a professional gamer and say good bye to CS 1.6 and Fnatic. It's very sad for me to leave CS 1.6 but since all the major events now have dropped it I feel like this is the best step for me to take. I will still keep playing 1.6, but not on a professional level. I would like to say a big thanks to the Fnatic management for believing in me and letting me represent the Black and Orange colors for such a long time: Anne, Sam, Neil, Danjiel, Matthew and Alexander. I played with a lot of different players in Fnatic and I would like to thank everyone, it's been a blast, especially to cArn and dsn for picking me up in 2010/2011 who made all of it possible. I wish the best of luck to the current Fnatic CS team, I am confident they will find a suitable replacement for me and continue their dominance. Lastly, I would like to thank all the Fnatic fans out there, you are awesome! See you around!"
