cArn to retire after IEM6 WC
Patrick "cArn" Sättermon of fnatic has revealed that IEM6 World Championship will be his last tournament.
Sättermon dropped the bomb in a video interview on fnatic.com. "After [IEM6 World Championship], I will stop playing actively and I'm gonna withdraw from the in-game leader position in fnatic."
The fnatic front man admitted that he had come to terms with the decision to retire after winning DreamHack Winter last year, one of the few tournaments he had not been able to win in the past.
Giving reason to the decision, he mentions age and that he has "many other goals in life" that he intends to achieve, adding that he feels now is the right time to embark on new challenges.

When questioned about the new in-game leader, Sättermon says "things are still to be discussed", but gives praise to his team-mate Richard "Xizt" Landström for his attributes in the game.
Although revealing his decision to retire just ahead of the IEM6 World Championship, he says his team is completely devoted and focused on the upcoming event.
Sättermon, 26, has resided within the ranks of fnatic since 2006, when Harley "dsn" Örwall was handed the task to create a new winning team for fnatic by the organization's founder.
Information detailing his retirement is to be released at a later date.
