SK to capture fnatic trio - Report
According to a report at rakaka.se, SK Gaming could be lining up moves for fnatic trio Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg, Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund and Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl.
The story comes in just hours after another report from Sweden indicated that fnatic are hot on the trail of free agent Marcus "Delpan" Larsson.
rakaka.se claims that Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg, Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund and Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl wanted to bring in SK pair Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström and Jimmy "allen" Allen to fnatic, a possibility which was allegedly rejected by the management as Patrik "cArn" Sättermon and Harley "dsn" Örwall do not want to quit just yet.
SK then reportedly opened their doors to this new team, a move which will pave the way for the departures of Dennis "walle" Wallenberg, Andreas "moddii" Fridh and Johan "face" Klasson.
The only doubt about the new SK team appears to surround Ståhl, who left the team for fnatic this summer following a dispute with the German-based organisation over unpaid wages.
The ESWC runners-up are believed to be uninterested in having Ståhl back in their ranks, and are weighing up offering Johan "face" Klasson a way back into the team.
Reports in Sweden suggest that SK first tried to go for Richard "Xizt" Landström, who had already played for the team in the SEC qualifiers, but then set their sights on Klasson after the Lions player revealed he is already poised to join fnatic.
Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg appears to be ready to put an end to his time with fnatic, whom he joined in 2006 from Begrip Gaming, having won almost every tournament in the world with the team.
f0rest: changed tag to SK?
Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund's switch to SK will represent his third stint with the team, following two experiences with them which certainly do not bring him fond memories .
In 2007, he was loaned out to Meet Your Makers just one month after being accepted on the team on trial.
Alesund eventually got his chance in February 2008, replacing Abdisamad "SpawN" Mohamed, but he was demoted to backup player just weeks later and got released from the team.
These changes will leave SK Gaming with the following players:
Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström
Jimmy "allen" Allen
Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg
Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund
Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl (?)
Johan "face" Klasson (?)
