fnatic drop out of ICSC 8

fnatic have pulled out of Intel Challenge Super Cup 8, as they are unable to attend the season LAN finals.

One match remains in the second group stage for ICSC 8, but it will in fact not be played. The match between fnatic and KerchNET will not be played, as the Swedes will not be able to attend the LAN finals for the eighth season of Intel Challenge Super Cup.

Patrik "cArn" Sättermon told HLTV.org the following about the situation:

"We are unable to fit the ICSC finals into our schedule, as one of our players will be on holiday during the finals. Unable to attend the finals, we will put all of our focus on GameGune."

A total of eight teams will make it to LAN finals (two from each group), but with fnatic pulling out, that leaves only KerchNET in their group, so the last spot will go to either Moscow Five or Virtus.pro (third placed in their respective groups).

omg, fnatic too :( f0cus to gamegune, nice gogogo fnatic! :D

I wouldn't call it lame, they need some time to re-think their strats and improve. In any case, nothing would be good enough for a fanboy such as yourself.

It's a lame excuse. Like I said it's not hard to find a replacement. They get paid for playing CS. It's their job. They should take the time and find a stand-in, practise some, and try their best in the playoffs. What they're doing is not good for the organisation, the event, and certainly not good for CS 1.6. The teams need to respect the events we have before they're all gone. And calling me a "fanboy" was a bit uncalled for don't you think?
2011-07-01 15:49
5 replies
No, I don't think it's uncalled for. And why should they find a replacement?. They've already changed their line-up too many times. So it's fine they decided to practice. By the way, the final was re-scheduled, so it's not fnatic's fault. They do get paid of course but they have to win something and they won't achieve anything if they keep attending events in their current shape. So yeah, they decided to re-group, practice and then perform. Why is that lame?. It isn't, don't bother answering this, it's just pointless

If that was the case they should have lost all their matches instead of quiting xS just so it doesn't trash the event's image.

Again, the organizers re-scheduled. How are you not getting that?. If anyone is ruining the event's reputation, it is not fnatic.

It's pretty arrogant I think. The tournaments for 1.6 doesn't grow on trees any more. The date of ICSC 8 final was announced a long time ago, why plan a holiday now then? On the other hand, If you got to choose between being humiliated and taking a holiday I guess their decision is understandable
