Patrik "cArn" Sättermon has dropped a strong hint that he will play for fnatic at DreamHack Winter next month.
The 27-year-old retired from gaming after the IEM6 World Championship in March, with his role of ingame leader currently taken by Finn "karrigan" Andersen.
A post on Sättermon's Facebook page earlier on Tuesday reads: "Seems like I'll make a mini comeback in November, more news soon!".
With fnatic due to return to China soon to play the remainder of the K1 League, it seems likely that Sättermon will play as a stand-in at DreamHack Winter, which is the only event on the team's calendar that month.
If confirmed, this is the second time that the Swedish veteran makes a short-lived comeback, after he played for the team during the group stage of the Swedish Championship in June.
DreamHack Winter will be the first CS:GO tournament for fnatic, who secured a spot at the event in Jönköping after winning the Romanian DreamHack stop last weekeend.
In a recent interview with HLTV.org, Andreas "MODDII" Fridh admitted that the lack of time to practice the new game will be an issue, but stated that the team "will try to have fun and hope for the best" at DreamHack.

You said age doesn't matter and then you start about neo. So you were talking about them?
Anyway like with any other sport or hobby most humans will peak at early to mid twenties.
The older you get the less time you will have for games. Responsibilities et cetera.
So in my opinion age does matter.
I seriously doubt it.
When they're younger they are happy with this wage and happy they get money by playing their hobby.
But as they get older and have more bills to pay, it won't be enough I'm afraid.
So they have no choice to quit the pro-scene and get a job that better pays.
It is hard to estimate the average income of a citizen in a corrupt country like Ukraine. After reading a little a "normal" work i the cities would give no more than around 400-500 Euroes a month.
But in Belgium 500 euro / month isn't even legal.
You'll allways have more with any job.
Understand, Think and write. Easy steps. Learn them before you write to anyone else. You are a waste of time.

in CS:GO you need much more skill than in cs 1.6, where spraying and all is so easy. for example in cs:go you need much more skill to control spray. recoil is also much harder to handle in burst shots in cs:go.
Only reason why NiP is on top in CS:GO, is because they have trained cs:go so much. they are motivated to spend absurd numbers of hours to train cs:go, because they "get paid" for doing so. for example verygames guys from source haven't played cs:go even nearly as much as NiP guys and still they almost beat them in Valencia
in natural individual skills verygames guys and most cs:source pros are so much better than nip guys and other cs 1.6 "ex-pros" :)
NiP 2-0'd VeryGames with ease and the 1.6 players carried the team.
It is harder to be a pro in 1.6 than in any other game so, you're wrong again. In 1.6 you need more skill than in any other game.
Source pros cant even qualify to good tournaments in CSGO, that shows how much ahead are the 1.6 players.
The 1.6 competence was very tight as well, in the last 3 years there were like 15 teams in very similar form, so you're just ignorant and speaking out of the wound.

Starcraft: BroodWar says hi!
Broodwar was like the national sport for korean people, it must be incredibly hard to get to semipro level there, being a SC2 pro is nothing compared to that, even crappy players like IdrA, iNcontrol, Tyler, TLO and others got to be considered "pros" in SC2. such a joke.
I will always respect BW as the only other difficult to learn eSport game.

its way harder to be a sc2 pro than a 1.6 pro
vg beating 1.6 teams to play nip in finals at valencia wasnt them qualifying in a 1.6 tourney?
it was the same 20-30 people in the pro scene for 1.6 for YEARS, no new blood coming in
SC2 is an overhyped eSport and it is almost dead by now.
1.6 has been much more competitive worldwide, Koreans didn't dominate 1.6, euros (swedes, poles, germans, danes, etc) did.

In my opinion quake players are more skilled than cs players.

"It is harder to be a pro in 1.6 than in any other game" Why?
CS lasted for 12 years and it was broadcasted via DirecTV, SC2 won't achieve tv space neither more than a few years more of notoriety.

CS:GO for kids and bad players, not skill need on this game.
NiP > Verygames.
Why would players in an easier game be more talented then players in the harder game? Also keep in mind that 1.6 players have a long professional career of practicing, traveling and playing on big stages while most CSS "pros" are players that played their whole CSS-career from the bedroom a few hours a day after work with some small lantournaments here and there.
rather take a standin from any cs:go team that is not going to participate
i say carn was shit at cs and he will be even worse in cs:go and i'm asking why this is worth a news post.
cArn is by far more successful than f0rest and any other swedish guy. Only the poles are above him.

You're not a 1.6 player, are you? You must be one of those CSS players that think they know about 1.6 only because they watch the frag movies. 1.6 is more than frags and every one that played at a decent level knows it.

If you followed the scene closely recent years, you should recognize that every time a team lost an in-game leader, they became a bunch of sand. They could still beat some average teams but when facing a tough opponent, they're confused, lost and could not do anything properly.
Ah, and just to remind you, cArn did many many important clutches, too. If you watched enough intense 1.6 finals, you would understand.

so i think he should just pick any cs:go player that is not going to participate with his team.

Karrigan can't attend.
