fnatic sign Delpan and Xizt
fnatic have announced the acquisition of Marcus "Delpan" Larsson and Richard "Xizt" Landström.
Breaking news last night when rumors surrounding fnatic's Counter-Strike team spread and caught the media's attention.
Following yesterday's report which read that Marcus "Delpan" Larsson was about to make a move to fnatic, the organization today confirmed that the former MYM man has indeed been signed.
Joining Larsson will be Richard "Xizt" Landström, who of late has donned the colors of the Norwegian-based organization Lions.
Xizt - now a member of fnatic
With fnatic bidding farewell to Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund, Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl and Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg, the latter who has been a part of the team since 2005, the squad stands without a fifth player.
However, fnatic.com's initial post regarding the new lineup noted that Landström's former teammate, Niklas "niko" Johansson, would also link up with the team, as the below print screen shows:
Johansson's name was shortly after removed
Founder and Managing Director of fnatic, Sam Mathews, said that they had the opportunity to take on SK's newly announced team, but that they let the chance pass.
"We had the opportunity to take on this team with Robban, and we chose to let the opportunity pass. We feel cArn is a natural born leader, and will be in fnatic long aftter CS has lost its competitive edge, we believe in his ability and harleys ability to build a winning team. On the other hand it is always disappointing to see the actions of players who have been with the team for five years make a decision to join an organisation for the wrong reasons", he told fnatic.com.
fnatic now boast:
Patrik "cArn" Sattermon
Harley "dsn" Orwall
Marcus "Delpan" Larsson
Richard "Xizt" Landstorm
