SK Gaming have snared the duo of Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund and Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg from fnatic.
News first surfaced yesterday, when rakaka.se reported that several former fnatic members had wished to bring in Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström and Jimmy "allen" Allen from SK Gaming.
fnatic strongly opposed the move, and chose to stick with the team's leaders in Patrick "cArn" Sättermon and Harley "dsn" Örwall. The German-based organization then reportedly opened their doors to the fnatic duo to form such a team, leaving the former fnatic members to take the show on the road elsewhere.
Despite Alexander "TheSlaSH" Müller-Rodic, Managing Director for SK Gaming, denying the reports in his blog, in which he stated: "none of that is true right now and we did not open any door to anyone", a new team was today unveiled.
f0rest to wear the SK jersey from now on
The former fnatic teammates, Alesund and Lindberg, have indeed proceeded to sign contracts with SK, but Ståhl has not been included in the transition. Perhaps to no big surprise, considering their earlier feud.
SK Gaming roster now boasts:
Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström
Jimmy "allen" Allen
Johan "face" Klasson
Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg
Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund
This news now completes the SK roster, but leaves a vacancy in fnatic as well as Lions. With Dennis "walle" Wallenberg being linked to retirement, Andreas "moddii" Fridh and Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl stand as free agents. Perhaps the ball is now in Lions' court?
