FYRR73 to fnatic - Report

Emil "FYRR73" Karlsson is likely to leave WinFakt in order to join fnatic, reports in Sweden indicate.

fnatic have been without a fifth player since seeing Richard "Xizt" Landström leaving the team in order to take part in the revival of NiP and start a career within Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. 

According to fragbite.se, who cite several unnamed sources, Emil "FYRR73" Karlsson is believed to be fnatic's next acquisition, which will entail saying goodbye to WinFakt.

Not much has been heard from WinFakt since the team picked up former a2g member John "wenton" Eriksson after Björn "threat" Pers decided to retire from professional gaming.

On August 17, fnatic CGO Patrick "cArn" Sättermon tweeted that fnatic's new player had been decided. Yesterday, he tweeted "73," with some interpreting this as a hint to Karlsson's nick.

The Swedish player will likely travel to Shanghai, China, with fnatic to attend the Counter-Strike: Online K1 League if he gets signed.

fnatic's possible five:

Denmark Michael "Friis" Jørgensen
Denmark Finn "karrigan" Andersen
Denmark Martin "trace" Heldt
Sweden Andreas "MODDII" Fridh
Sweden Emil "FYRR73" Karlsson

Good move, because FYRR73's aim>Xizt's. And FYRR73 has tons of experince in being an IGL.

trace did only play with AWP in mTw because no one else wanted to! So there is only 3 awper in fnatic if FYRR73 joins!
2012-08-20 19:42
obviously they don't need an IGL when they have so much aimers and noone can beat them 4 sure

We (counter-strike fans) decides which game to be played. If we stick to CS:GO, of course they will choose CS:GO in tournaments. Just STAY with 1.6, I think there are no problems.

you are so naive if you think that we can do something about that and we decide which game will be played:D

2012-08-20 16:39
source fans+new fans+a part of 1.6ers will make cs:go a hit, even if most of 1.6 base do not follow streams/buy the game.

it is, but as non-pro gamers we still have the option to play which ever game we want. i'll compare it to football. its a great sport and i enjoy watching it, but am i going to take time out of my life to start practicing and playing with the hope that i'll become a pro player? no. will i still watch it? yes. we can do the same with 1.6/csgo play whichever game you want, but when it comes to spectating csgo might be the only option

i dont think calling LIONS/lemondogs/winfakt semi-pro is fair :) As the 3rd best team in sweden, they were still a top10 team in the world. I think there is no team they haven't beaten at least once in the last few years.

i haven't ever said that moddii is/was the primary awper. hltv.org/?pageid=198&&offset=50&search=1.. and when he was in au team then after kalle he was the secondary sniper. Though he had done it for very short period bt for that period he had done good. so i m not telling hima primary awper or even an all round player bt if he want then he can do well. that is my point. :)

Nah dude, he is right. By your logic you can say that every player from every team can use AWP. It is true for sure, but whats the point of it? Every player can't use it @ pro level. Same situation with moddii.
