Just after Gux parting ways with Fnatic, the organziation has already picked a fifth to complete the Counter-Strike squad. Coming aboard will be Bjorn “threat” Pers. In the past, threat has played for teams such as Eyeballers, Lemondogs, Team Giants and most recently, H2k Gaming.
Patrik “cArn” Sattermon, Captain of the Fnatic.MSI CS squad has this to say about the changes and the 2010 year:
There has been a lot of curiosity about the shape of FnaticMSI´s 1.6 line-up of
2010 and the wait is over for all restless souls out there.
We are thrilled to welcome Björn “threat” Pers to the FnaticMSI family. Björn
did an amazing job helping us win WEM, our very first title in China.
This change means Rasmus “Gux” Stahl will not be in our team for 2010 and
from all players and the organization, we wish Rasmus farewell and thanks for the time we had ruling the world.
The team and I would love to send our best wishes to FnaticMSI for their continuous support. Without them and the help from MSI, SteelSeries, Bigfoot Networks, SLAPPA and UGAME we would not be able to travel the world shooting headshots.
I want to wrap this up thanking all fans, sponsors, players and my family who motivated me to continue my gaming career.”
Today, threat also made a statement about how excited he is to join FnaticMSI:
Its a big honour for me to join the ranks of the currently best CS1.6 team in the world, FnaticMSI. We had an awesome time in China and I felt the chemistry between us was great. I think I will be able to bring some new positive energy and some awesome new tactics to the team. With this in mind, I think we will be able to be as successful as the team was in 2009! A big thanks goes out to my new sponsors MSI, SteelSeries, Bigfoot Networks, SLAPPA and UGAME.
