Fnatic (pronounced "fanatic" /fəˈnæt.ɪk/; also stylized as fnatic or FNATIC) is a professional eSports organization headquartered in London, United Kingdom.[2] Founded July 23, 2004,[3] the team has players from around the world, across a variety of games, such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends and Dota 2.[4]

Fnatic's League of Legends team won the first ever League of Legends World Championship in 2011, and also holds the record for the most League of Legends Championship Series split titles, totalling five of the seven played so far. In the 2015 EU LCS Summer Split they became the first LCS team to finish a split undefeated. Because of their accomplishments Fnatic's LoL team is usually considered the best western team in history.

Fnatic's Counter-Strike team, which has traditionally been located in Sweden, is also considered one of the best of all time, having won three CS:GO Majors and winning many other tournaments in both the CS 1.6 and CS:GO eras. Fnatic is the only CS:GO team to appear in every Major to date.

Overview[edit]

The organization was founded on 23 July 2004 by Sam Mathews and Anne Mathews.[5] After playing several years for Fnatic, Patrik "cArn" Sättermon, a Counter-Strike player, became the Chief Gaming Officer of Fnatic in 2012. Wouter Sleijffers replaced Anne Mathews as CEO in 2015,[6] whilst Sam Mathews is the Board Chairman.

Between 2008 and 2009, Fnatic was sponsored by MSI and SteelSeries, spurring a temporary name change to FnaticMSI.[7] On 1 June 2011, Fnatic partnered with EIZO to launch their gaming monitors into the market.

In 2006, Fnatic acquired a World of Warcraft team, Fnatic. WoW. Returning to represent Fnatic in the World of Warcraft 3v3 community was players TooGood, Vo0, and Ztrider. The Fnatic. WoW division won top finishes in events including BlizzCon, Intel Extreme Masters (IEM) and Major League Gaming (MLG).

In 2007, Fnatic acquired a DotA team, Fnatic. DotA, represented by Ritter "Ritter" Rusli, Romi "melen" Gunawan, Ariyanto "Lakuci" Sony, Sugiarto "BaHaMuT" Cahyadi, Jeffry "Neo" Lu.[8] They were formerly known as XcN DotA.

In 2008, Fnatic picked up a new DotA team with a roster of Edvin "Kwom" Börjesson, Jonathan "Loda" Berg, Rasmus "Misery" Berth, Rene "Kebap-" Werner, and Aringazin "Aidar" Aidar.[9]

In 2010 FnaticMSI.HoN was restructured with players like Johan "N0tail" Sundstein, Kalle "Trixi" Saarinen, Henrik "Freshpro" Hansen, Jascha "Nova" Markuse, and Tal "Fly" Aizik.[10]

In January 2012, Fnatic took on RaidCall as a sponsor.[11] With the new title sponsor, Fnatic expanded into South Korea and became the first non-Korean esports team to acquire a professional gaming house in Seoul.[12]

In 2012, Fnatic picked up the former GamersLeague Dota 2 team in order to compete with other top teams. The team placed fourth in ESWC, but soon after, the team parted ways with Fnatic.[13]

In August 2014, Fnatic announced that it had partnered with Luke Millanta to produce a number of Counter Strike: Global Offensive weapon finishes.[14][15]

In 2015, Fnatic announced a return to Dota 2, acquiring and sponsoring Team Malaysia.

On October 1, 2015 sports betting website Dafabet became a sponsor of Fnatic.[16]

The company has its headquarters in London, near the Silicon Roundabout at Old Street, with a full-time senior management team including a CEO, CGO, Sales Director, Accounts Director and Head of Creative Services.[17]

Fnatic also runs an independent digital agency, Sannpa, for businesses looking to be involved in eSports.

Counter-Strike[edit]

The Fnatic Counter-Strike team in 2007.

Fnatic entered the Counter-Strike competitive scene in 2004, when the team was founded by Freek FraK Tammeling. The initial roster, led by Benjamin "diGitaL" Hildén, managed to win CPL Singapore 2005 but struggled to make much of an impact at other international events. At the beginning of 2006, Fnatic released the entire lineup except for sniper Harley "dsn" Örwall, who was tasked to assemble a new roster. Örwall recruited Patrik "cArn" Sättermon, the in-game leader of EYEballers; Oscar "Archi" Torgersen, from Team GoN; and Begrip duo Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg and Kristoffer "Tentpole" Nordlund.[18] This lineup would go on to win many major events in 2006, culminating with a 1st-place finish at CPL Winter 2006.[19] In 2011, Fnatic's Counter-Strike team placed top three in many events with their newly acquired player, Michael "Friis" Jørgensen.[20]

cArn gained a reputation as one of Counter-Strike's premier in-game leaders and strategy callers from 2006-2012 due to his ability to lead several completely different Fnatic rosters to major tournament wins. However, in March 2012, he announced his surprise retirement before the IEM Season VI World Finals, going on to become the first Chief Gaming Officer (CGO) for Fnatic.[21] Xizt took on the role of the in-game leader, replacing cArn with Finn "Karrigan" Andersen, another Danish player. The new team won their first major LAN event at Copenhagen Games 2012. On the same weekend, FnaticRC.aLive won his first ever major tournament at IPL4 Las Vegas.[22]

After Fnatic CS won 2012 DreamHack Summer and the Swedish Championships, Rasmus "Gux" Stahl retired from Counter-Strike, leaving an open spot in Fnatic. On 26 June, Fnatic announced that Martin "trace" Heldt will join the team. In August, Richard "Xizt" Landstorm left the team to play CS:GO for NiP; Emil "FYRR73" Karlsson was announced as his replacement.

When Fnatic switched to Counter Strike: Global Offensive, they became one of the top teams in the world. In order to complete the roster, Fnatic announced that Xyp9x & JOKERN will join them to compete in Counter Strike: Global Offensive.[23] The team was able to finish in the 3rd/4th position of the EMS Season 1 Finals.[24]

In late 2013, Fnatic won their first ever major tournament in Counter Strike: Global Offensive, under the guidance of their new leader, Markus "pronax" Wallsten, taking out the team Ninjas in Pyjamas. In 2014, Fnatic took in 2 ex-LGB players, Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer and Freddy "Krimz" Johansson. They went on to win ESL One Katowice 2015 after defeating NiP, and on 24 August 2015, Fnatic won ESL One Cologne 2015, after defeating Team EnVyUs.[25] Because of this roster's back-to-back major wins and 11 other international titles, some consider this Fnatic team to be the strongest roster ever assembled in the history of CS:GO.[26]

In November 2015, after a few disappointing tournament performances, pronax decided to take a hiatus from competitive CS:GO. He was replaced with Dennis "dennis" Edman from international team G2.[27] In December 2015, Fnatic beat NiP 2-1 and secured their second Fragbite Masters win, the other being in season 3.[28] Fnatic regained the #1 position in HLTV.org's team rankings after the tournament,[29] and remain the #1 ranked team in the world today.

In April 2016 olofmeister announced a wrist injury and John "wenton" Eriksson took his place temporarily.

On August 15, 2016 Fnatic announced that Flusha, JW, and KRiMZ will be transferred to GODSENT and the team would be welcoming Twist and Lekro in return. Wenton, who is already a sub for Fnatic, will be completing the lineup.[30][31]

Smite[edit]

On November 8, 2014 Fnatic signed its first Smite team, acquiring the roster of Exposed Secrets.[32] The team made it to the semifinals of the Season 1 EU regional Championship but did not manage to qualify for the SMITE World Championship. On December 23, 2014 the team disbanded.[33]

On March 6, 2015 Fnatic announced signing the roster of SK Gaming.[34] The team competed in the Smite Pro League and finished 5th in the Summer Finals, winning $18,250.[35]

For the Season 3 Spring Split, Fnatic announced the addition of BigManTingz and Jiffy to the team after Badgah and CaptainTwig left at the start of 2016.[36] The team finished the season in 8th place with an 8-20 record.

ShootMania Storm[edit]

In November 2012, Fnatic announced that they picked up a ShootMania Storm team. The team recruited Kévin "Strenx" Baéza, a former member of their previous Quake team, as well as two new players, Maikel "LeKaiM" Peeters and Jean Pierre "JiePie" Janssen. The trio won numerous small cups, and the Shootmania Launch Party, where they won $30,000.[37] In December, Christoffer "Luxxiz" Losell joined the team after the departure of LeKaiM.[38]

On January 8, 2014 Fnatic announced the departure of their ShootMania squad and the closure of their Shootmania division, stating a decline in quantity and quality of ShootMania tournaments as the main reason.[39]

With DXRacer joining the list of sponsors, Fnatic decided to expand to Korea. On March 19, 2012 they announced that they will open the Fnatic Gaming House in Seoul. They became the first foreign team to establish a permanent training facility for players in Seoul.[40] Fnatic picked up several talented players from the Korean StarCraft II scene. In January, "DeParture" and Warcraft legend "Moon", and "aLive" moved into the gaming house. They are coached by Hwanni, who also joined Fnatic that month. Later, OZ and Luvsic signed a contract with Fnatic. In 2012, Rain announces his retirement and leaves the team. He is followed by Byul, Ares and Moon. Only two players are left in Korea, forcing Fnatic to announce their closure of their gaming house in Seoul and the end of their contracts with aLive and OZ.[41] In the mean time Harstem was promoted from the Academy to the main roster, and the team picks up SaSe, another well known face in the scene.[42]
