Earlier this week, Fnatic announced the addition of Marcus “Delpan” Larsson and Richard “Xizt” Landström as replacements for Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund and Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg who went to join SK Gaming. The team also parted ways with Rasmus “Gux” Ståhl, leaving the team with only 4 players as of early today.
The Fnatic organization has finally announced their 5th, as they are bringing in Faruk “pita” Pita formerly of Begrip and MYM fame.
Faruk had this to say about the his addition to the organization:
Today is a great day. Who would have thought this day would come when I started playing back in the days. To be able to play with idols such as cArn and dsn makes you think you are still dreaming.
Also reuniting with my old teammate Delpan is something I’m really looking forward to and playing with one of the best Swedish talents today, Xizt. I could write a whole book about what I’m feeling right now, but to spare you fans out there of falling asleep reading this, I will be short: I would like to thank the players of FnaticMSI and also the sponsors MSI, Steelseries, Bigfoot networks, UGAME and SLAPPA for the oppurtunity. I will do everything in my power to keep fnatic on the steady rock they have been the last years and prove to the world that fnatic will dominate 2011″ – Pita said in a statement on fnatic.com.
