fnatic confirm Brollan signing

fnatic have completed the signing of Ludvig "Brollan" Brolin from Red Reserve, the UK-based organisation have announced.

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.

Brollan signs for fnatic

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.

fnatic now have:

2018-10-17 13:15
Golden good in FPL; but in real match he gets like 10 kills / map even worse than xizt in frag Also Twist needs to awp so JW can work his magic with rifle especially on T side Twist needs to be T side awper atleast

"At the same time, I want to thank Adil for his time with us. He has always been extremely professional, and he has performed more than expected in-game as well. I can heavily recommend Adil to any team with great ambitions.” - Andreas ‘Samuelsson’ Samuelsson “[Playing with ScreaM] felt really good considering we went from Swedish to English, the communication actually felt quite good. But it's the small things, like positions or something you want to explain in a Swedish way; you don't have the same vocabulary in English that you have in Swedish. In a few situations, it's always going to be harder [in international squads]." Could some top team get their heads out of their asses and give this fella a tryout even?

Agreed, that's basically what I meant. They signed the scraps, since they're the only ones left in the Swedish scene that's decent enough to play in a top team.
2018-10-17 13:36
thats the problem with swe scene . they dont have many options,look danish scene . they have tons of fucking options to sign . beside old dogs (fnatic,nip) others "young talents" seems to failed ( draken shit,lekr0 good but still not good as he was expected,disco doplan shit) so mediocre players at best .

Well brollan is a great talent, but he got little experience at lans. Anyway I look forward to see him develop as a player

Xizt joins Fnatic, instead of them replacing Xizt who's been shit on LAN for over 2 years now, a shit IGL, trash player they end up replacing the whole fucking team instead, foh Fnatic you guys made the worst decisions EU.
2018-10-17 15:38
So there was no actual talent then to go for? Hahaha, fnatic disband soon enough :D

-Xizt and u have a good team, +draken +hampus +literally anybody
2018-10-17 16:45
expected and good move, just need to get rid of xizt now and they have a REALLY good team with a lot of promise
2018-10-17 16:53
+1 xizt needs to retire maybe he could coach a lesser swedish team

Will age not be a problem? Remember when Frozen from eXtatus was 16, there had some problems attending tournaments because of that.

brollan is the real deal, he is not some Rez (random tier 3 player who didnt even excel that much in tier 3 games), or some draken.

Really nice Brollan seems to be a good player with a lot of potential

This could actually be good.. I dont see why people are hating on twist? Hes a really fucking good player and brollan clearly has alot of potential. Give it time :)

I am so glad to see this, if they got a newer IGL (Like getting Golden back) this team can easily get to Top 10 and even Top 5 with some work and grinding. Glad to see Fnatic making the correct moves here.
