fnatic bring back Lekr0

MIRAA
August 21st, 2017 12:15

fnatic have announced that they have completed the signing of Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson from GODSENT with immediate effect.

The 24-year-old moves to fnatic as part of a trade deal that sees Dennis "dennis" Edman move in the opposite direction.

He becomes the second addition to fnatic's roster of the Summer, following in the footsteps of Maikil "Golden" Selim, who was promoted from the organisation's academy team.

Lekr0 rejoins fnatic

This is Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson's second stint with fnatic, having previously represented the organisation for two months, between August and October of 2016. 

dennis had been on fnatic's books since November 2015, when he was signed from G2 for an undisclosed fee. After his arrival, the team enjoyed immediate success, winning six international events in just five months, but then they went through a rough patch of form that resulted in a trophyless 15-month period.

"Dennis joined our team in late 2015 and his addition immediately kicked off one of team’s most successful eras in CS:GO, winning FACEIT, EPL, SLTV and IEM in just a few months," fnatic Chief Gaming Officer Patrik "cArn" Sättermon said in a statement.

"We are so thankful for the time we’ve been working together, and I want to wish him a big GLHF at his future endeavours in gaming and life.

"Filling Dennis’ position in the team is none other than Lekr0, a player we grew very fond of last year, and also a player we believe has massive potential that we hope to unlock in this new iteration of Fnatic CS:GO.

"From all of us at Fnatic I would like to once again thank Dennis and celebrate his amazing run with us. Also please join us once again welcoming Lekr0 back to our organisation!"

fnatic will make their first offline appearance with the new roster at DreamHack Masters Malmö, which will take place from August 30 to September 3. The team's first match in the ESL Pro League will see them take on BIG on Tuesday.

With these changes, fnatic now have:

Sweden Robin "flusha" Rönnquist
Sweden Jesper "JW" Wecksell
Sweden Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson
Sweden Maikil "Golden" Selim
Sweden Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson

wasn't working? Mate they got top 8 last major and were eliminated by the eventual tournament winners. And they were improving as well. It's better than the so-called french "superteam", navi, faze etc. They got the same position as SK. To say it wasn't working is just ignorant imo.

They made top 4 with twist and disco doplan. Top 8 means they won three best of ones, they didn't win any best of threes or any match on the stage. Remind me again who is ignorant? Clearly you know more than the fnatic players, I wonder why olof didn't come to you for advice first?

Golden isn't taking Olof's role, he is taking flusha's as the igl. Even then Xizt would have been a better option but probably not possible since it's a NiP player.
2017-08-21 15:34

I think Fnatic can improve from this. Honestly, olof looked good in some games and we could almost see a return to form but in playoffs he went missing hard. Dennis, to me, has been quite overrated in Fnatic. We all know he joined the team because hes buds with olof and they have the same idea of how a team should play but it just clashed hard with the rest of the members on the team. I think this is a step forward for Fnatic, its sad that olof leaves but Dennis to me should not be anywhere near this team, he makes tons of mistakes and gives away advantages too often. Hes a run and gun player and I think these type of players have no room in a team that wants to win trophies, just look at ScreaM

I agree been awping like old JW and lekr0 and flusha are both capable of picking up secondary awp if needed but better rifling. Even krimz has hit good clips with a picked up awp in the past. Definitely think what lekr0 brings outweighs having twist who is a much better awper than rifler but cant with JW as primary (as he should be)

Omg people saying rip fnatic, retarded move and etc Its known there are problems between olof/dennis and other three, so these two were forced to leave, both Olof and Dennis have chosen best possible offers. Fnatic need an IGL to unleash Senor VAC (he is gonna take Olof's star role) and rifler to replace dennis (lekro is the best variant)

Problem in Swedish CS is the rivalry between NiP and fnatic. Dennis should play for NiP that is the best org and CS team in Sweden at this time. NiP should not be so hard on who they "draft" or pick up. They want the perfect cemestry but its time to bring in the big guns to once again take over the CS sceen. Olof and dennis should have played with f0rest Xizt and GeT_RiGh
