fnatic confirm Brollan signing
The 16-year-old will be replacing Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom, who has been standing in for fnatic since Robin "flusha" Rönnquist stepped down from the team, with the Belgian talent due to remain on the roster as a backup member until the end of the month.
Brollan becomes the second player in the space of two weeks to join fnatic from Red Reserve, following in the footsteps of Simon "twist" Eliasson, who was unveiled at the same time as William "draken" Sundin was moved to the transfer list.
A member of the losing finalist of the GAMERZ Season 1 reality show, Brollan made his international breakthrough precisely with fnatic as he attended the WESG EU & CIS Regional Finals with the team as a stand-in for Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson, helping them to a fourth-place finish.
Later that year, he signed his first professional contract with GODSENT, who would place top eight at WESG 2017 and win the Qi Invitational. In June, the team linked up with Red Reserve, and results under the new organisation have been mostly disappointing, especially on LAN.
“I am very excited to welcome Brollan to Fnatic, not only because it means we finally have a full team again but also because I know that Ludvig is the final piece of the puzzle," fnatic member Jesper "JW" Wecksell said in a statement.
"He is extremely talented, he has a hunger that spreads within the team and he is an extremely hard worker. I see the 16-year old version of myself in him.
"The motivation within the team has never been higher, and now it’s time to get back to business and show people exactly what we are made of."
Brollan will make his first official appearance for fnatic later on Wednesday as the team will take on FaZe in the ESL Pro League. The WESG 2017 champions will return to LAN action only next month, at IEM Chicago, which will run from November 6-11.
