karrigan signs with fnatic
Finn "karrigan" Andersen has been signed by fnatic, stepping in as the team's new fifth, following Patrik "cArn" Sättermon's retirement earlier this month.
The organization had earlier this week announced they would reveal the new player today at 18:00 . Patrik "cArn" Sättermon, now retired, also did a play of words with names of teams and players in order to cause speculation about the new addition.
Large parts of the community took guesses at Karl-William "kalle" Haraldsen and Finn "karrigan" Andersen as well as some interesting names in various forum threads.
fnatic have now announced that Finn "karrigan" Andersen, from Denmark and a former mousesports member, will join the team. Andersen was recently released by the above-mentioned squad together with his team-mates, having served one year and four months for the German organization.
karrigan joins fnatic
About joining fnatic, Andersen gave the following statement on fnatic's website:
"After mousesports shut down I only saw one place I could picture myself and that was with FnaticRaidCall, I missed playing Michael and Andreas. The reason I joined was; If you can't beat them, then join them. I played a lot versus FnaticRaidCall last year and every time they came on top, so for me it was an easy decision to take and I'm glad I got the offer from FnaticRaidCall. It's hard to predict how people will react to this, because the player I'm replacing is an irreplaceable in my opinion. cArn has showed himself over and over again, that he's one of the most successful player out there. I hope I can bring other things to the table and get some trophies out of that."
Andersen is the second Dane in history to play for fnatic, joining his former team-mate Michael "Friis" Jørgensen, who play alongside him in Full Gaming.
fnatic now house the following lineup:
Richard "Xizt" Landström
Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl
Andreas "MODDII" Fridh
Michael "Friis" Jørgensen
Finn "karrigan" Andersen
The official debut for Andersen will be at the upcoming Copenhagen Games in less than two weeks, but you will already have the chance to interact with the new player tomorrow, as he will take part in fnatic's Play with the Pros tomorrow at 20:00 .
