dsn retirement confirmed

Harley "dsn" Örwall's retirement has been confirmed by fnatic, seeing the 25-year-old leave competitive gaming and fnatic with immediate effect.

The rumor surfaced earlier today, that fnatic was set to lose Harley "dsn" Örwall to retirement. The rumor has now been confirmed, with fnatic announcing the departure of Örwall on their website.

Örwall joined the ranks of fnatic in October 2005, with the purpose of replacing Youcef "solido" Riahi. He went on to become captain of fnatic and later on rebuild the team, which reunited him with his former team mate Patrik "cArn" Sättermon. In the orange and black jersey Örwall has won a ton of tournaments, including dominant times in 2007, as well as the 2009 year, breaking the record of prize money won during one year.

Last year in September, Örwall went on to comment in an interview on fnatic's website, that he would end his career within fnatic: "I'm sure I will end my pro gaming run within FnaticMSI."


One of dsn's most prominent titles

In his retirement announcent on fnatic's website, Örwall stated the following:

"After playing Counter-Strike since the release and competitively since 2003, I’ve decided to quit. It has been a great time indeed; all the traveling I’ve done with the team, all the victories we’ve had together and all the people I’ve met through playing.

The reasons I’m leaving the game behind are many, but first and foremost I feel that I’m too indifferent towards the game. The motivation I had to win no matter what when I was younger isn’t really there anymore, and when I do things I want to do them wholeheartedly. Also, I’ve always promised myself that I would quit the day I didn’t enjoy playing anymore and that day is now.

The results might have something to do with it, it would be stupid to deny it. It’s a lot more fun to stand with a trophy at a top of a podium than to unplug your gear after being knocked out early. In the beginning of the year before the IEM European Championship I had that drive to put in hours because I wanted to win so bad, mostly just to beat f0rest and prove the world wrong. And after we had won it was almost like I had climbed Mount Everest or something, I didn’t really think about any other tournaments, all that mattered was that tournament and that we won.

It’s just a game, but it’s been my life for a very long time and even though it will feel weird to watch the tournaments from home, I am happy about the fact that it will free up a lot of time.

I’ve been lucky to have so many great teammates throughout the year – just watching the metamorphosis of f0rest from talent to one of the greatest players of all time was pretty cool – and I want to thank them all for the fun times we had together. I will especially miss Patrik (cArn) a lot for his bad humor (equal to mine) and due to the fact that we’ve played together for almost our whole professional careers.

I also want to thank all the players in the other teams on the CS tour for the fun times we’ve had, all our fans (you’ve all been great!) and Fnatic with sponsors for giving me the opportunity to play CS for over five years. To me, black and orange are the best colors you can wear in e-sport. Even though this in a sense is the end of an era, it’s also the start of a new era for the team.

I want to challenge myself, to feel those butterflies I once felt when playing big games, like when we played 16-14 on de_train versus Team 3D in the semifinal at ESWC 2006 and Tentpole was left in a 1vs2 situation the last round and managed to clutch it and everybody screamed really loud in Ventrilo so he almost didn’t find the planted bomb that was beeping faster and faster, just like my heartbeat beating faster and faster.

Thank you everyone for making the last eight years such a pleasant experience!"


dsn's last title with fnatic

With Örwall calling his retirement, fnatic is now left with the following four:

Sweden Patrik "cArn" Sättermon
Sweden Richard "Xizt" Landström
Sweden Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl
Bosnia and Herzegovina Faruk "pita" Pita

What is your best memory of Örwall's career? Discuss in the comments below and feel free to write your goodbye to the Swedish legend there as well.

The next question on the rise is, will fnatic as the rumor suggests, go on to sign the Dane Michael "Friis" Jørgensen? Stay tuned as we will update you once fnatic have announced their new fifth.

Very sad, dsn is a great player...
2011-09-08 01:08
one of the best moments of dsn for me is the global challenge dubai vs MYM amazing dsn
2011-09-08 01:17
His ace against mTw is amazing too
2011-09-08 01:56

2011-09-08 09:26
If dsn had retired in 2010 at the time of dispute, Fnatic definitely would have dominated throughout till now. And you know why?!
2011-09-08 12:42
fnatic now will fail once out dsn
2011-09-08 13:03
the Jaroslavl tragedy is sad, not this.
2011-09-08 13:06
yea, i have checked this page quite a few times just for some news about the tragedy, at least few words. nothing. this is eSPORT. payers, sportsmen die but we have cs. it s not like in some war. it is special.. i know this is cs page, but i simply felt there will be some short blog or something. shame on ya but okay, enough offtopic. DSN.. (DSN and cArn) duo i have admired for so long.. gl in RL

2011-09-09 02:23
if next lineup will "fail" I guess he will end his career but I don't think cArn will quit with gaming, ever
2011-09-09 16:46
You will be missed harley, i cant believe you stop playing... such a good player and guy. In my opinion, you have been playing better than anyone in fnatic 2011 :) But i can understand if you lost motivation, anyways, you have the best CS career of all counter-strike players out there :)
2011-09-08 01:08
+1, he was fnatic's best player until delpan departed for SK
2011-09-08 10:04
cArn retire please and +THREAT and +MODDII
2011-09-08 10:24
Are u serious, do u know much is cArn important? He is one of the best leaders in game of all time. Fnatic'd be nothing without cArn.
2011-09-08 11:23
cWN ne seri majketi...jbote carn u usta...dok je igrao forest i gtr uzimali su turnire a sad karina :)
2011-09-08 12:00
fnatic without carn and dsn + 1 good igl and 1 igf and fnatic would dominate!
2011-09-08 15:16
THREAT(IGL) > cArn
2011-09-08 12:45
cArn is doing much much much more out of the game thats cutting his time to prepare tactics for his team :/
2011-09-08 15:28
and its the problem, cArn is too busy to give a fuck to this game.
2011-09-09 00:04
you mad bro?

2011-09-08 01:08

2011-09-08 01:09
As if Sweden doesn't have enough players? XD
2011-09-08 01:32
lol, are you jealous? :D
2011-09-08 03:11
No, just don't see it as necessary.
2011-09-08 03:20
I agree.
2011-09-08 11:23
didnt he sign with mtw a couple of days ago?
2011-09-08 01:37
Actually they've only played one match. I get the feeling they may have had an argument or something during practice and he left, just my theory. It seems these days mTw is stronger than fnatic so it would seem pretty ridiculous to go to a weaker team. EDIT: Especially one where they can't attend WCG because different nationalities.
2011-09-08 01:54
Weaker ? are u kidding me? fnatic is one the best organizations, they pay good salary, they have fame, and Xizt,c4rn,pita,Gux and now friis is way better than mTw 4 sure
2011-09-08 04:27
fnatic better than mTw? are you kidding me?

mTw is equal if it comes to organisation. mTw is even older than fnatic, but ye if there's no chemistry there's no team. no team = lose. hope fnatic finds someone worthy of replacing dsn.
2011-09-08 10:05
mTw is actually the old Noa organization under a different name when they merged with some other organization
2011-09-08 11:43
trace would still beat fnatic singlehandedly
2011-09-08 10:08
nothing to do with swe team or dane team,they need the right chemistry,I think the style of friis doesnt fit in mTw right now,they use to have Sunde with awp tacts,now after they changed lineup with minet and trace,they use more rifl tact,it's not good to break this chemistry that they already built. Friis is a very underrated awper,he just need a good team to provide the method of awping tacts,and he's gonna win a lot after that.
2011-09-08 04:53
I don't understand, why Friis should leave mTw for fnatic ?
2011-09-08 11:01
He wanted to get out of mTw because of chemistry problems. Since anexim get ptn there is no space for Friss. Since dsn lost his motivation into game he was just waiting for equal substitute of him (skillwise). This situation is logical. Lets wait for chemistry and communication of Friss in fnatic if it will work.
2011-09-08 15:36
I just wondering what carn will do. He'll retire too? What do you think, guys? About best memory, hmm.. when it comes to CS I don't know, I was always mad when they killing almost all FX team (especially on train at T-side) and they couldn't stopped him. I don't know him personally so it's hard to talk about best memories in 'real life' but I remember that he was the guy who helped Luq get to the hotel/hospital when he was beaten. ^^ Anyway it's sad but all of us knows that everyone will end it some day. It doesn't matter if it'll be the best player of history or just semi-pro player. As DSN said, if he didn't enjoyed this game last time then he made a good choice. Thanks for emotions that you bring me all the time and also good luck in future. (:
2011-09-08 01:22
dont think so
2011-09-08 01:11

2011-09-08 10:08
he's is destroying fnatic since f0rest and GTR left
2011-09-08 13:17
I think he will get more oldschool players into team if his teammates will fail due to lack of experience a lot of time.

stop with this "life" joke!! everybody has his life no matter how it is spent. Usually those who are confirmed losers are the most sensitive in these cases.
2011-09-08 01:16
What did you wanted to say whit: "Usually those who are confirmed losers are the most sensitive in these cases."
2011-09-08 01:22
Actually, considering they support CS as a sport does not mean they have no life. It's just a nice hobby really. Would you go up to a Newcastle/Liverpool fan and say to his face "you have no life?"
2011-09-08 01:34
i did that to a local fan...
2011-09-08 01:36
but m8 in that case anyone with a hobby in your eyes would have no life XD Everyone (or at least most people) strive for some sort of entertainment, bring up a hobby to keep their lives more cheery. It doesn't make them lose their sense in life, but rather brightens it up a bit when all they do otherwise is work, study, or hang out with friends. Believe it or not, having a girlfriend doesn't always entertain you 24/7. What do you do otherwise?

2011-09-08 01:12
wondering what changes are going to be made :( if carn leaves gux would be left with most experience + age :( and i cant see fnatic winning any upcoming tournaments .. :(
2011-09-08 01:13
cu LEGEND! :')(
2011-09-08 01:13
"In the beginning of the year before the IEM European Championship I had that drive to put in hours because I wanted to win so bad, mostly just to beat f0rest and prove the world wrong. And after we had won it was almost like I had climbed Mount Everest or something, I didn’t really think about any other tournaments, all that mattered was that tournament and that we won." Except xizt and carn carried the team to victory. What a lame thing to say, finding excuses for being proven that it was f0rest and gtr carrying fnatic since 09. Pretty much to sum it up he says: "When i try i can prove that im not a scrub like f0rest and gtr said. However when i lose repeatedly, its because i lost my drive to win."
2011-09-08 01:14
stfu dude, dsn and f0rest are good friends.. but you cant judge him for being happy after winning IEM5..
2011-09-08 01:22
It's not him being happy thats lame, its the way he paraphrased that comment. Making an excuse, no matter which way its stated- is still making an excuse. I can judge whomever i want, it's my personal opinion. In my eyes he was one of the most overrated players of all time. Gained his popularity from one good performance for gamers.nu at a CPL i believe, and then later carried throughout his career by his teammates. f0rest and GTR didn't just randomly decide they didnt wanna play with DSN anymore, there was an obvious reason that he wasn't up to their standards as a player. Especially if they are good friends.
2011-09-08 01:27
overrated ? wtf.. everyone i know thinks that dsn is underrated and i also think that.. because, if you ask for sick snipers or sick rifles, people will always tell you the same names: markeloff, delpan, f0rest, get_right, neo, etc, etc.. but no one never says dsn and although i know he is not a madfragger like them he is very consistent! in 2009 when you say get_right and f0rest carried him, i think youre wrong.. because he was HUGE at that time and could probably be top3 sniper and top10 player in the world.. he would frag as much as the others but he would frag a lot...
2011-09-08 01:37
I don't know what games you were watching, but he clearly never performed as well as you seem to be labeling him. He had his moments sure, he is a top player on a top team. But he was always so highly revered as a top sniper, when in reality f0rest was probably a better sniper than DSN (think he proved it in 2010 too). Besides, its not that difficult to frag on the worlds best team, with the best IGL, two of the top 3 players in the world at the time, as well as gux whom was many times claimed to be the best teammate by other pros. However, when NaVi came on the scene, and fnatic wasnt winning everything anymore.. where was dsn then?
2011-09-08 01:49
You are the one who didn't watch IEM5 with both eyes opened ;x dsn and cArn were on fire whole tournament and xist is the one who was a monster on final.
2011-09-08 01:53
f0rest with awp is different than dsn's.. dont compare a rifle with a pure sniper (dsn-2009). Sure it isnt hard to frag, but you have to be at the same level of them lol and dsn was... sure dude.. everyone is telling you the same but its ok... in 2010 dsn kept fragging and in 2011 he was the best overall in fnatic...

Its easier to check his stats and take it to argument something. Yes, maybe dsn was the best o one of the best fnatic players statistically, but when you watch at his pov, you realize that he wasn't that good. Ronaldo scored the same goals as Messi last year, but its clear who of them is the best. But maybe my opinion is not totally objective, as I never like dsn playstyle.
2011-09-08 02:34
Believe me, ive watched him since 2008/2009 and he is a beast.. just watch fragvideos, he has lots of clips... About ronaldo / messi, both have better things that the other.
2011-09-08 02:42
Fragmovies don't reveal the real level of the player. You need to watch POV because a lot of clips are full eco ace or whatever. Just for example the 4 he kills in tuscan. It was an eco.
2011-09-08 23:46
I know :)
2011-09-09 00:01
cause he is an awper.As you said,it's much fun to watch a frager than an cold apwer like dsn,a lot of rounds he doesnt move a bit for more than 1 min.But when it comes down to win,they have to play in their own role. doesnt matter if you like him or not,he's been one of the best all time awpers in my mind,like frod and Hyb,ksharp.
2011-09-08 05:10
check his career and then talk,you a noob to me in CS. harley won a lot of great matchs and i dl almost all the demo they played since he get in the lineup with Carn and tentpole.You have no idea how good he played,and how long he's been shined. Forest and gtr both are great players,but dsn did carry fnatic a lot of times in the past. dont judge some1 by just watching a few games:YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW GOOD THEYV BEEN PLAYING.
2011-09-08 05:02
oh stfu you scrub. I bet you dont have 1/4 of the knowledge and cs history i do. Ive watched and analyzed this game ever since gotfrag came to be. I called f0rest being a future top player before begrip ever went to WEG. I've thought dsn to be an uprising sniper back from the gamers.nu pubbing days. And unlike you, i have at least had the pleasure of playing against some of the worlds best players at local, and international lans. DSN has nothing but good aim, which carries his unbelievably stupid at times decision making. Your all on his nuts because he's had a few nice highlight rounds, and frag clips here and there. Secondly, all you illiterate morons seem to be acting as if I called him an awful player. When all i stated is that he is one of the most overrated players, whom was fortunate enough to be carried throughout most of his carrier. He wouldn't have won half his achievements without f0rest, GTR, or CARN. While i can easily say, that the latter would have done so easily without DSN. People call dsn one of the best awpers of all time, with the only thing to merit that statement is the fact he played on one of the best teams of all time for 5+ years. Cogu, hpx, kk, lex, spawn, ton, fallen, frod, sunde, delpan, rwa, ksharp, sally, shaguar, walle, and im sure many others have all been at their certain points in time far better than dsn. Thats more than 10 players ive listed off the top of my head, whom have been better snipers than dsn over their respected careers. Yet people insist on saying dsn is a top 3 sniper, top 10 player, etc. I say your all full of shit, and nothing but fanboys. Tell me one single tournament where dsn stood out more than any of his other teammates. If there are any of these rare occurances, im sure i could count them on 1 hand. good day troll.
2011-09-08 06:40
wich lans you attendended ?
2011-09-08 11:23
Canadian WCG's, TFL's, NY w2z's, and other local Toronto LANs. The Canadian scene while by no means great, was very close back in the days cs flourished in.
2011-09-08 23:49
does a player have to always stand out to be awesome ? consistency matters more than anything else your looking at how many awesome performances he did whereas a consistent record of very good performances is very valuable .
2011-09-08 11:51
Being consistent does not make a player great, and tbh most of the time DSN was consistently average on what many consider the worlds best team. Nobody called ahl a top 3 player of any sort, and that guy was actually consistently putting up frags (just not in large numbers).
2011-09-08 23:51
P.S. are you by chance related to a guy named FODDER ?
2011-09-08 11:52
No, FODDER is a fag.
2011-09-08 23:52
Exactly, it is YOUR opinion. That does not make it a fact. Just agree that most of you disagree, and be done with it. Cause this is MADNESS!
2011-09-09 01:04
bahahaha wow did u really just say that dsn was ever carried? u literally have no knowledge of cs and its history, i dont think u could ask any pro player if dsn was ever carried and they would say yes....DSN is a legend and will always be remembered as a top player for 8 fucking years...go practice on ur cal-im team and stfu.
2011-09-08 03:26
Don't you think giving his team a CAL-im status is pushing it a bit ?
2011-09-08 04:21
maybe ugl ?lol I think i may over do it :D
2011-09-08 05:11
Oh im CAL-IM now am I? Real original dick face. I took the time to search up all chuck finleys whom have played in leagues. You know i came up with a whole bunch of CAL-O experienced players, whom have at some point in time when CEVO was dead ventured into CEVO MAIN! N theres one chuck finley whom has even been VAC banned. So wait.. who are you again?
2011-09-08 06:54
i agree with f0rest carrying fnatic.

2011-09-08 05:11
You really can twist up words, it stopped even being funny. 1) dsn was their 2nd best player stats wise at IEM Europe and was especially instrumental in the semifinals vs Na'Vi 2) dsn has played for god knows how long so it's only natural to lose your motivation sometimes. Also it is human nature to want to prove people wrong when you are deemed unfit to do something, and after you've done it, you can feel a bit empty. It has nothing at all to do with him saying "i am good when i'm trying hard". Get a grip and give the guy some respect for his career. He always seemed like a nice guy as well. Edit: I'm not saying at all that dsn was always the most important part of fnatic. But he still had a great career, and he isn't making excuses at all. You are just seeing what you want to see.
2011-09-08 01:33
Pretty exaggerative of you to say I twisted his words so much that me implying that he tries hard when motivated and focused is so different from "In the beginning of the year before the IEM European Championship I had that drive to put in hours because I wanted to win so bad, mostly just to beat f0rest and prove the world wrong". Who's seeing what they want to see now? As for IEM, you seem intelligent enough to know that stats =/= outstanding performance. It was carns leadership, and xizt's incredible performance in finals that won them that tourney. Even though yes, dsn did play well vs an under-performing navi. Obviously it isn't far fetched to lose motivation, most of us have tbh. However, its very peculiar that he seemed to have lost it all after one tournament because he won and proved f0rest wrong.
2011-09-08 01:44
That strech wasn't what I disagreed with but the one where you thought dsn put himself on some high horse and said he's up there whenever he tries hard and his repeated losses are due to the loss of desire to play. But it doesn't really matter anyway. No matter what one thinks of dsn's role in fnatic's success he still had a great career.
2011-09-08 11:42
u srsly didnt watch the complete tournament... dsn was the stable among them while every other teammate has their moment of shine Xizt in finals, cArn against Na'Vi.. dsn was stable throughout!! and it would be better to keep dumb opnions to urself..
2011-09-08 01:34
I wouldn't label anyone dumb in public if I were you. Why? You should be able to figure it out.
2011-09-08 01:51
you're dumb
2011-09-08 03:27
you're an overweight inbred hick. you lose no matter what
2011-09-08 06:54
your an arrogant idiot who thinks he knows everything and won't admit he is wrong no matter who or how many people say it ...
2011-09-08 11:55
How am I arrogant for stating my opinion? Unlike the majority of the imbeciles disagreeing with me, I am not trying to forcefully change their opinions like they are mine. In fact, every single person here including yourself whom has responded to me, has insulted me first without any merit. Thankfully I don't acknowledge the opinions of those whom have the reasoning of my 5 year old cousin. I have posted my reasoning to back up my opinion again and again, only to find others replying to me calling me an idiot and a noob- their reasoning being is that dsn has had a great career and that he consistently had very good performances. Yes he had a good career, I never denied it. But it was mostly due to his great teammates imho. No, he never consistently had very good performances. He consistently had mediocre performances, and rarely any bad ones. That does not make him a really great player. It simply makes him a decent/good pro.
2011-09-09 00:10
To me he was always one of the best players around, a very consistent player. I could somehow relate to his style of awping. I also remember him releasing a demo of him playing CSDM at the fnatic website many years ago, and to my surprise I was in it, haha.

2011-09-08 01:19
Sad, dsn is one of the nicest guys around. Good luck

2011-09-08 01:35
everyone in the same bag with a couple of dumb fockers dsn is a legend
2011-09-08 01:36
The only player people have been saying should be replaced was pita. DSN has been the most consistent player for fnatic in 2011...
2011-09-08 02:37
i've never said -dsn + XXX, so sck my dck and dont put me in the same bag as those frontrunning fanboys
2011-09-08 03:30
dont put everyone in the same bag , there are those who only watch highlights and say that since this guy doesnt pump out highlights regularly he should be replaced on the other hand there are those who actually watch demos and see everything before formulating an opinion

2011-09-08 01:26
Sad momment. I have followed his entire career and when he gets focused he can be truly unnstopable. Ive seen a couple of late sloppy tournments with too much agression on his moves but im sure he could do wornderful with a simple mind click. Will always remember him has one of the best Ive seen.
2011-09-08 01:27
as he said its cuz they are loseing but he had a good run
2011-09-08 01:28

funny how everyone now says "dsn legend" , "dsn best awp", "dsn best player" , couple weeks ago people were saying he is the weak link in fnatic , he doesn't hit his awp.
2011-09-08 01:36
"how everyone now says "dsn legend" , "dsn best awp", "dsn best player" , couple weeks ago people were saying he is the weak link in fnatic +1
2011-09-08 01:37
and who exactly is "people"? I consider myself part of that "people" group you mentioned, and honestly, I'd never say such a thing.
2011-09-08 01:38
"people are saying" You know, if 10 people comment somethig, it does not mean everyone is thinking that way. I have never seen DSN as the weakness in fnatic. Hes the one who have always done his part in the team.
2011-09-08 01:41
they are talking about his entire carrer,and yes he was on of the best player in his time...its not accident that he was named the decade awper
2011-09-08 01:39
gl in future dsn for me one of the best players ever :)

Shame, I always thought he was pretty consistent with both rifles and AWP. Hope a player like FYRR73 can get in fnatic to keep it all Swedish, if not Friis would be a great addition.

2011-09-08 01:46
Thank you dsn. You were such an inspirational player throughout these years. When we played you guys in EPS last year before I ultimately quit too, I remember feeling so starstruck. Not by f0rest, GeT_RiGhT and Gux, but mostly you and cArn, who had been my heroes since I saw you with Begrip/EYE in 2004. Comes a time for everyone to stop :) GL in life!
2011-09-08 01:48
Good luck! If I remember correctly I love dns' 4 frags on inferno with one sick wallbang :D I think that cArn is somehow responsible for the fnatic cs team so he will stay as long as it takes to find 5th player to replace him. Which won't be so easy :)
2011-09-08 01:49
now dsn :( sad gl dsn =D
2011-09-08 01:51

The career of one of the greatest CS players come to an end. I really liked him since I started watching CS.. I was cheering for him back then in 2009 when everyone said they should replace him ,as f0rest and gtr were fragging like monsters and he was in their shadows,although he played his role perfect. I will miss your blogs at fnatic.com ,cuz you have great writing skills as everyone can see above in your statement. Good luck Harley, write a blog at fnatic from time to time.. :D

I'm really sad everything he said is true but definitely I've been following fnatic for well since the beginning of my gaming life and this is one of the moments that I feel will leave a hole on my chest because I've seen DSN since the start and he always was one of the players that even now I'd say its World-class he is pretty good at everything but if he thinks he is already done for...well there's nothing we as fans can do so I feel sorry because I know this decision comes mostly because of the desmotivation of not being in shape with the team but I guess we should thank Harley for all the awesome matches he showed us he is one of the best players this game will ever had :(

although he was doing good this year,he should have done this before,he just wasnt on the same level as markeloff,delpan and others,nor he was one the best rifles,its kinda sad watching carn not play with f0rest...
2011-09-08 07:24
cArn will retire as well, probably after the next major tournament. After than I think fnatic will field the 5 best players of ex-fnatic/LIONS/RAGE...
2011-09-08 07:24
too sad :( ggbb, Man!
2011-09-08 07:31

2011-09-08 08:18
He was not just a legend of the sport but an amazing player and he had such a great personality. I wish him all the best in the future but life goes on, we can't be sad all the time. Now let's see who's gonna join fnatic and take dsn's place..

2011-09-08 14:26
good news for swedish cs scene^^. DSN have been with CARN biggest reason for swedish cs failures and they both are for sure two worst top player of all top teams, but finally then understood to quit =)
2011-09-08 09:04
that exactly explains why they won so many world championships. Oh BOy!

2011-09-08 10:27
IMO dsn still had a few more years left. Sick aimer. He made plenty of key frags in a lot of fnatic victories even with gtr and f0rest. IMO, cArn and pita are the ones who should retire. gl Harley
2011-09-08 09:24
recently pita was their best player with dsn? Oo but agree dsn was one of the best in fnatic even if he did not feel the hunger, so it's sad for fnatic (and fans around the world) that he will quit
2011-09-08 09:28

A big loss for fnatic and competitive CS. dsn was more than just an exceptional player. He was a great man, loyal to the core, one of the few players today that puts the team's success above personal glory. While he didn't shine as much as f0rest, he was the backbone of f0rest and fnatic's dominance, like how Scottie Pippen was to Michael Jordan in Chicago Bulls. I cannot say this for the fnatic players as I've never played with dsn myself, but from what I've observed throughout his career, he seems to be the calmest and composed among all fnatic players in the past and present. His presence surely adds a positive and relaxed atmosphere in the team which is a big boost to the team's confidence. It is especially helpful for new members to settle down and feel comfortable in a short time. As a Pentagram/G5/FX supporter, dsn has always been a pain in the ass to play against. But he gains my respect for his philosphy towards the game. Something I have always believe and something FX always have in them. Friendship and trust are the only recipe for long term success. fnatic didn't enjoy much success in 2008, Archi and ins were no longer motivated but dsn keeps believing in them until their eventual retirement. When Gux and GTR came in, he made sure that they feel comfortable (keep in mind GTR was treated like sh*t in SK) and let their friendship bloom while enjoying success. As a man who shares the same philosphy, I can assume the biggest blow to dsn's motivation is f0rest leaving. The same guy who he handpicked to join him at fnatic, gone thru thick and thin throughout their adventures of conquering the world scene, tasting sweet victories and sour defeats together. Together with cArn, they were like 3 brothers who shared the same goal. Now that same guy no longer believes in dsn's ability. That's quite a blow to his pride as a player and friend. His sole purpose after f0rest's departure was probably to show what he's capable of and he did exactly that in IEM EU. GL HF in your future Harley. You will be missed. =)

Good luck DSN on behalf of Greatfrag community, take care. It's sad to see the one that shines atm in Fnatic leave the team, but as always real life is more important than game. Take care and it was a privilege to watch you play and to stream your games. The CS community will miss you.

This began with n0thing raping fnatinc twice on train. That's when delousion first said maybe it's time for him to retire. And if i remember corectly he had a complete fluke with an eyeballers team alongside walle @ WEG in 2004. Nevertheless, great player. GL IRL The Oldschool <3s u

2011-09-08 11:11
everybody says "DSN one of the best ever :i" but the reality says, he wasn't a top 5 player but he was one of the most stabel players playing the game, and that is what we appreciate him for <3 wishing you good luck in the future DSN :i
2011-09-08 11:24
kinda hard for a player that has been around 8 years to compete in the "top5 series" when f0rest/GTR/neo/trace/delpan is there.
2011-09-08 11:42
Don't think trace, Delpan or GTR should be there either.
2011-09-08 11:57
why not? i have never ever seen someone hit as many headshots as trace do, and he does it all the time. he is pretty flexible and is able to fulfill almost everything and has been one of the best players every since he joined mTw. Just curious, how would your top5 look then if you won't have trace, delpan and gtr? Markeloff deserves a spot instead of delpan imo, you could possibly swap gtr with another one too, but trace? sorry I just dont get it

2011-09-08 12:29
At Fnatic Site... After more than two years together, the team decided to go different directions and Harley was once again needed to form a new lineup. Together with his longtime teammates Patrik and Rasmus, Harley gave the two upcoming youngsters Richard "Xizt" Landström and Faruk "pita" Pita a chance to prove themselves in a big team and managed to lead the team to a title in their first event, the Intel Extreme Masters European Finals this year. Where's the story of Delpan? LOL!

2011-09-08 19:09
Get_right's post on fnatic.com : I know somehow I'm not the best person to even give a comment about this, especielly what happened before etc.. But I wanted to give a little comment from my side, how harley was/is for me. As many people know, I joined fnatic 2009 beginning of the year with Gux to do what people didn't really think we could do that year, pretty much win everything that was out there in that year, as the newspost said. We broke the prizerecord that year! Anyway.. Harley, I remember back in 2007, when I played in Begrip (ESWC Qual.) and was siting on Admin computer looking at a highlight of mine actually, I think it was me against SK (1on3) and You came out of no where and said something like "Pretty sick round u had there!" I don't really remember what I did say back, but I remember that actually felt "little happy" because one of the players, like You. That I have been looking on for years and always admire. Siting there watch HLTV's hours after hours years before and always made me as a Player wanted to be like You. One year later 08, I was playing for blank team, I think it was. I'd just had my first 0-14 on a lan tournament against SK back then and I was pretty down about it, becuase I failed being a Player like I wanted to be and against my team back then. But, of all the people I thought would give me a little "heads up", it was actually You there again of all people I was playing with back then. I felt this small happiness again after hearing for You of all the players there. "Cheer up man, you will be better next game! :)" What I wanted to come and say really is that, there is been many players that have been affecting me as a Person and as a Player. Sure, when we played together we had our diffenret thought's and understanding. You are fucking 5 years older then me man! ( ;-) ) Another thing is that You have always been there, when I was playing in fnatic with my emotions. You told me when we were in Korea in 2009, that u were similer to me, when u started to play CS and you know that "whine" wasn't the best choice of dealing being Mad/Angry/Thinking bad or similer. You know what I mean.. I hope.. Anyway.. It's actually with little bit of a tear in my eye seing that you'r retiring Harley as You were one of the guys I watched threw the years, helpt me getting better as a Player and also being my "bigger brother" when we played together.. I guess I will also retire one day, but till then. My hat off for you my friend and hope you will find something else that will get you happy and so on.. I hope that one day, that I will met You again and say, I'm Sorry for all the bad words I gave to you when we played... Also, I can still hear that small sound you make when you'r watching Series/playing DM! (Most because I took it from You haha..) My hat is off for you.

One of the most underrated players of all time. In my opinion the time when he played in EYE he was the best player of the moment, carrying the team almost alone and winning so many rounds by himself mostly with his awp. Great legend, too bad cArn will follow his steps soon.
