n!faculty wird dänisch - pronax für MODDII zu fnatic

Geposted von MooZE,
Relativ überraschend wurde soeben die Nachricht veröffentlicht, dass Andreas 'MOODII' Fridh das Lineup von fnatic verlassen muss. In letzter Zeit konnte man nicht mehr die Leistungen abrufen, wie man es sich gewünscht hatte. Nun zieht man im Hause fnatic die Reißleine und verabschiedet den ehemaligen Counter-Strike 1.6-Spieler. Doch damit nicht genug: Auch n!faculty nimmt große Veränderungen vor und wird komplett dänisch. MODDII wird von Markus 'pronax' Wallsten ersetzt, der damit n!faculty verlassen wird. Neben ihm verabschiedet man mit Alexander 'rdl' Redl und Christian 'Spitfire' Schiölde auch die anderen beiden Schweden im Lineup von n!faculty, die in der Zukunft auf ein komplett dänisches Team setzen werden.

Dabei präsentiert man ein Lineup, das auch in Hinsicht auf die DreamHack Winter ein ernstzunehmender Gegner sein könnte. Neben Finn 'Karrigan' Andersen und Lukas 'gla1ve' Rossander, die weiterhin im Team aktiv sein werden, sicherte sich die deutsche Organisation am heutigen Tag die Dienste von Jacob 'Pimp' Winneche, René 'cajunb' Borg und Rasmus 'RAALZ' Steensborg.

Statement Christian 'PsYcHo' Lenz:

Today we have to announce the disband of our Scandinavian team. pronax will join fnatic and we all agreed that he deserves this chance. Markus was always loyal and did a lot for the team, it was a pleasure to spend so much time with him. We wish him best of luck and a great time, hopefully we will meet again soon.

Nevertheless, the third lineupchange during three months was way to much. We couldn´t guarentee a good DreamHack and the last results showed us that we need to change something. Due to ingame communication problems we decided to part ways with rdl and Spitfire and start a complete Danish team.

A big thank you goes to Alex and Christian, which both agreed with the circumstances. We had a great time in Bucharest, Cologne and Valencia, so it´s always hard to lose players which are in a good relationship with you.

The good news is: It didn´t take a long time to fix the Danish lineup. Thanks to good connections of karrigan and gla1ve, we were able to sign Pimp, cajunb and raalz. The three players were about to start their own project called 'PRIMETIME', but they saw the potential of this lineup, so they decided to take that chance. We will focus now on ESEA and DreamHack, so let´s meet on the battleground!

Statement Finn 'Karrigan' Andersen:

Once again I find myself in a position, to renew a team. This time pronax has gotten an offer from fnatic, which he wanted to take. Personally I know pronax for a long time and always wondered, why he never came further than he did in 1.6 and aswell in CS:GO. The hours that pronax putted into the game and what he did for the team makes him a important asset to all teams out there.

The team and I fully respect the transfer and I would like to take the chance to thank pronax for the short time, even though it was a bumpy road. I want to thank spitfire and rdl aswell for the good and funny moments we had together, though it was short but I had such a great time with the team at Dreamhack Bucharest and EMS. The sad part is how it all ends, right before the tournament we all aimed for, but there is never a good time to break up a team, because of a lot of tournaments.

The new n!faculty team will become a fully Danish lineup, which im personally very excited about. This means that gla1ve and I will make a Danish lineup, which will consist of cajunb, p1mp and raalz. We only have a little time for preparing for the biggest tournament this year, but I am fully confident that within these days, we will become better and better for every day. I think this team has a lot of potential, players with experience, individual skill, new fresh blood and in my point of view the best in game leader in Denmark at the moment. I hope the adjustments in game will go fast, so every player will find his positon within the team, so we can become a serious contender within some weeks.

I would like to take the time, to thank the organization of n!faculty and for believing in this team, likewise giving us the opportunity to represent them at Dreamhack winter in two weeks. It means a lot to the team and I appreciate that we have this opportunity. We will work hard to achieve better results than the previous team.

Lastly I want to thank the sponsors CM Storm and gamed!de, the organization, our manager Lenz (Psycho) and as well the fans. I hope they understand the situation we are in and will respect and be loyal towards the team. We will do everything in our power to bring back n!faculty where they belong.

Statement Andreas 'MOODII' Fridh:

It is time for me to say goodbye once more to the fnatic family, everything isn't always easy but sometimes you need to think what is best for all parts. I would like to thank all the fnatic members for always being there and support everything I've done and always being so professional. Big thanks to Patrik and Anne for just being really awesome. Take care all of you guys out there and I wish the new Fnatic team all the luck in the future hope we will meet on the battlefield!
