Official: draken joins fnatic

June 17th, 2018 14:07

fnatic have completed the signing of NiP backup player William "draken" Sundin, the two organisations have confirmed.

The Swedish AWPer will step into the shoes of Maikil "Golden" Selim, who has been ousted from the team less than a month after switching roles from in-game leader to entry fragger following Richard "Xizt" Landström's arrival.

With the 24-year-old in his new role and Xizt calling the shots, fnatic attended the ECS Season 5 Finals, in London, where they were sent packing in the group stage following two defeats to Liquid.

draken reunites with Xizt in fnatic

draken had been weighing up his options after being removed from NiP's starting line-up to make room for Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson. During his 15-month spell with the Ninjas, the former Epsilon player helped the team to win DreamHack Open Valencia 2017 and IEM Oakland.

Xizt will be hoping to bring the best out of draken once again after working with the AWPer between March 2017 and February 2018, when he was replaced by Dennis "dennis" Edman on NiP's active roster.

In an interview with HLTV.org at the ECS Season 5 Finals, the fnatic in-game leader revealed that the team were struggling with the sniper role as Jesper "JW" Wecksell "does not want to main AWP all the time".

“I am incredibly proud and happy to be joining Fnatic," draken told fnatic's website . "I not only look forward to playing with Xizt again - who has proven he can be one of the very best IGLs - but also to playing beside the legends, Krimz, Flusha and JW!

"I have had a fantastic time with NiP during which I have learnt an incredible amount and developed personally. But, now, a new chapter begins."

According to fnatic, Golden has been moved to a substitute role as the organisation explores options for the player, who plans to continue his career elsewhere.

I will forever be grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given and, of course, I give a big thank you to the management and the players at Fnatic," Golden said.

"My ambition and goals remain high. Changes like these can be dispiriting, especially as this is a first for me, but I’m highly motivated to continue playing at a high level.

"I see this now as an opportunity to grow as a player and a leader, as I believe I have a lot more to show. I need to take the experience I gained into the right direction for a future home to represent."

The new fnatic roster will make its first appearance at ESL One Cologne, from July 3-8, where 16 teams will duke it out for $300,000 in prizes.

With draken's addition, fnatic now have:

Sweden Robin "flusha" Rönnquist
Sweden Jesper "JW" Wecksell
Sweden Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson
Sweden Richard "Xizt" Landström
Sweden William "draken" Sundin

Sweden Maikil "Golden" Selim (backup)

No he is right, Begrip was his first notable CS team, then he played for NIP for less than a month, moved to SK then he left, played for some other teams, then went to Fnatic for about a year, then back to SK, he was with SK until he moved to NIP for CSGO

2018-06-18 07:03
Why do they need an awper? Forest, Lekro, Dennis and REZ can all play AWP well, they have all been secondary AWPers in teams. All they need is for one of those guys to feel it in that specific round. Also makes NIP unpredictable since you don’t know who and what style the AWPer will have, if they even use one that round.

2018-06-22 01:16
Even IF that was true, still leaves three strong ones. Rez usually outshone Draken every time they dual AWP.

 | 
Germany Aquintus 
true, but if golden takes over as igl for nip dennis could be finally unleashed. And dennis used to be quite stable with the awp, they can follow liquids example and switch to a hybrid-awp-playstyle

I dont think, he can awp against players like s1mple, guardian or dev1ce. They needed.
2018-06-17 15:23
f0rest managed pretty well as their T side AWPer actually, probably better than hes been in 2018 as a rifler. I can see NiP doing okay with him AWPing for them But they need Golden in place of Xizt
2018-06-17 15:53
Golden can’t frag.

still want to let you know that you dont just become main awper by snapping fingers on that level :D. it really requires a lot to change the role + i dont believe either f0rest or dennis want to become main awper, it would be just waste of good riflers. overcomplicating is fun

dupreeh , coldzera , etc etc , weren't awpers at the start ... argument over,
2018-06-17 17:47
Why do they need a main awper? This way they can play 5 rifle strong when they want to, and they have 4 players (all except Get Right) that has played second AWP very well (REZ often outshined Draken when they had dual AWP). They can just rotate the role to whoever is feeling it that round. Makes them very unpredictable as well. Main awper usually bad at rifles anyway.

f0rest, dennis and rez all cann pick up the awp from time to time. You dont need a true main awp to play better than NiP does atm. Just look at the Liquid. But I hope they can get either a better IGL or a main awper for Bot GTR

fnatic not only fucked Golden in the ass after the work he had done, but also keeps fucking him by not letting him just go, they want to either earn money by selling him, as if anybody would buy him, or make him die on the bench. Gj fuckers!

well golden can just keep playing FPL till his contract ends and still get the salary so it's ok, it's esports, shit like this happen a lot the only sad thing is that flusha or JW said in the interview smth like golden will be aight in a month or two he just needs to get used to his new role and couple of weeks after he gets kicked lol
2018-06-17 14:16
don't believe in what officials say, they say what they should, not what they think i doubt a salary of a benched/substitute player is the same as of a player that actually plays, but it's not the biggest issue, the thing is that some team may be looking for an IGL right now, so playing FPL till the end of the contract may prevent Golden from joining some team that will appreciate him

flusha is known for being pretty honest although he used to hack I'm sure that if nobody will buy out Golden fnatic will probably release him from the contract before 2019 if he'll insist
2018-06-17 15:01
when a guy signs a contract with a professional organization - there's no honesty anymore, there's only what he should say and what he shouldn't flusha trashtalked Maikelele only because fnatic had no desire to sign him and Maikelele's image had already been fucked up but when it comes to the players of your own org, you should watch your mouth and also think about it: if they publicly say that they're gonna kick golden anyway - golden won't try hard anymore, because for him the result will be the same anyway, that's why they pretended that they were gonna keep him there's no honesty where money is

If a business has a valuable asset they are not just going to give it to one of their competitors for free are they? The suggestion that fanatic should do that is absurd.
2018-06-17 22:35
If Golden was a valuable asset they wouldn't get rid of him the way they actually did, they wanted to kick him before the IEM, then they won the IEM and they kept him for another tournament or two, they knew they wouldn't keep him, if he was so valuable why did they do that to him?

Australia KatVian 
For an obvious PR stunt, not kicking him after announcing they'll kick him is obviously done to get a few more fans liking fnatic. Golden is valuable in the sense that another org would buy him for money and then use them as a good Igl in a team, of course fnatic want some money for a good Igl before his contract expires.
2018-06-17 22:42
Why would they kick a good IGL?

2018-06-17 14:29
yeah... golden so good. why was fnatic t side so atrocious after WESG? they literally got stomped over on t side every single map playing without any actul strats and running blindly. IGL has huge reponsibility for this. and clearly golden was overrated as some thought.

Finally Golden is gone, he was never good enough for fnatic and his tactics were utter garbage. The only reason for the tournament wins were krimz going off and flusha in the finals.
2018-06-17 14:28
Wow, thats just not true, I agree that in the current situtation it was logical to kick golden but he led them to good Victory and an overall top tier consistency, which they werent able to have since 2016
2018-06-17 14:35
#148
 | 
Sweden bag0fdicks 
Consistent? Do you remember starladder? The wins they got with Golden were not due to tactical plays mostly, just check the demos.
2018-06-17 14:44
Are you serious, were you watching the team in 2017? they were almost never making it to playoffs and were just running like headless chickens, ever since they added golden they were almost always making it to playoffs at least ( missed playoff only 2 times with lekro and golden I believe and one of those where 1 week after they created the lineup), so yes they were really consistent and with your logic not a single team is consistent these days since literally every team in the world has at least one bad tournament every few months

definately agree with this, i think they should have given him a chance and never signed xizt. This can still be pretty dope tho, fnatic has really been missing a dedicated awp, they should have kept lekro too instead of jw, sadly that will never happen.

They got Xizt because he works well with their experience player and that would be insanely dumb to keep golden while having xizt igling and weve seen that at ecs

Golden made fnatic great again. Now they kick him lul
2018-06-17 22:06
VERY GOOD LINEUP, GO FNATIC
2018-06-17 22:07
What is this circus of roster changes!
2018-06-17 22:14
Wtf I don’t get it why fnatic didn’t keep Lekro in the first place instead of Golden. Krimz, JW, flusha, lekro, xizt would be really nice line up. All this weird shit just to swap lekro for draken lol
2018-06-17 22:32
afaik lekr0 didn't want to play with them

FNATIC werent going in the right direction anyway, Hope this will fix them and that wasnt only due to them being lazy as fuck and not wanted to get their shit together, CS is boring atm

A bit sad to see golden go seeing as he seems to be the one who got fnatic back on their feet. However i think with these changes they can make it back to top 3 or even 1. Give them some time and they'll be amazing. Hopefully Golden can find a new good team to join. Eskilstuna-boy deservers it :D

I don't get it. The best last seen fnatic was with Golden as IGL (no draken, no Xizt), why would they change almost everything?
2018-06-19 22:49
internal problem and you could see they were starting to struggle even while having decent results on lan, I think their online results tilted them
