Jumpy joins fnatic as coach

fnatic have announced that Jimmy "Jumpy" Berndtsson has been installed as the team's new coach.

The 29-year-old will take over from Viktor "⁠vuggo⁠" Jendeby, who announced at the weekend that he was transitioning to a manager/analyst role within the organisation.

Jimmy "⁠Jumpy⁠" Berndtsson, who played for teams like Volt Gaming, Begrip and Meet Your Makers in 1.6, had moderate success as a player during the early stages of CS:GO and ended up embracing a career as a coach.


Jumpy to coach fnatic's team 

After little over four months on Escape Gaming, during which he also played when needed, Jumpy has now been entrusted with the task of guiding the new fnatic roster, which recently saw the additions of John "⁠wenton⁠" Eriksson, Jonas "⁠Lekr0⁠" Olofsson and Simon "⁠twist⁠" Eliasson.

"I am excited to be working with such talented players and be a part of one of the most successful organisations in eSports," Berndtsson said in a statement.

"I think we can do some really good things together.”

Jumpy's first event on the job will be the SL i-League StarSeries Season 2 Finals, which will take place from September 7-11 in Nanjing, China, with $300,000 on offer.

The Swedish team now have:

Sweden Olof "⁠olofmeister⁠" Kajbjer
Sweden Dennis "⁠dennis⁠" Edman
Sweden John "⁠wenton⁠" Eriksson
Sweden Simon "⁠twist⁠" Eliasson
Sweden Jonas "⁠Lekr0⁠" Olofsson

Sweden Jimmy "⁠Jumpy⁠" Berndtsson (coach)

hmmm they are definitely tier6 and lower... why are you getting so mad? it's just the hard truth tier4-5 male teams wiped the floor with them which means they are simply in a much lower skill group, just watch their match history and see for yourself

Nope, they didn't rekt the "coaching" model, only the "coach as IGL" model. I can't recall any sport or e-sport where the coach is shotcalling. In some games like LoL, the coach isn't even allowed to stand behind the player but is watching the game from the big screen like a random guy

+1 Plus, he's a coach, not a 6th player, he might help them with scrims, travels, making sure they are all well, keeping the team together, but he's not an actual player in the game, I personally don't like the fact that some teams have a starix as their coach and others have next(envyus), next is an actual coach, while starix is a 6th player. Remember, my opinion, don't hate me too much for actually saying what I think about the situation. Cheers

So many idiots not understanding the changes that Valve made to coaching. They didn't fucking ruin it or take it away, they actually just made sure that it stayed as a coaching role and stopped the coaching becoming IGL's, which is an IN GAME role. I'm actually so annoyed that people don't understand the difference.

I so don't believe anymore in fnatic even if they have 3 of the finest swedish stars. If they want to win majors they better study LG's teamplay a lot because individually speaking, I really don't see wenton or Lekr0 performing. Nevertheless, if both of them are in the fnatic squad it's because someone judged they have the potential to be major champions. Or not?
2016-08-22 18:24
everyone saying RIP fnatic for Jumpy as the new coach clearly joined the cs community only a couple of years ago. Jumpy as always been a solid player and IGL. This is a great addition imo!
