A major roster shuffle rocked Swedish Counter-Strike Monday morning.
Fnatic, one of the world’s top teams, announced that Jesper “JW” Wecksell, Freddy “KRIMZ” Johansson, and Robin “flusha” Rönnquist have left to join GODSENT, an up and coming Swedish team of veteran players. The trio will be taking up arms again with former Fnatic teammate Markus “pronax” Wallsten.
With the move, the GODSENT roster will boast 4/5 of the team that won back-to-back majors in the spring and summer of 2015.
Fnatic released a press statement indicating that cracks had formed in the team internally, and that the time for a change had finally come after a long week of intense negotiations with GODSENT.
“The new chapter we are starting together with two very good friends to all of us, players we have played with before and players we are confident we will build a new legacy together with,” said JW in the release. “I hope the fans understand us and support us in our decision and can keep cheering for both teams in future clashes. In my heart I will still always be a Fnatic.”
Fnatic will be retaining the talents of Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer and Dennis “dennis” Edman and adding Simon “twist” Eliasson, Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson, and John “wenton” Eriksson.
