Grosser umbruch in CS:GO-Szene
karrigan kehrt zu mousesports zurück - fnatic durchlebt Wechsel
10.12.2012, 18:15 Uhr
Wie der deutsche Traditionsclan mousesports heute verkündet, kehrt der Däne Finn 'karrigan' Andersen zurück zu seinem ehemaligen Arbeitgeber. Zuvor verließ er zusammen mit Andreas 'MODDII' Fridh fnatic. Somit stehen sowohl bei mousesports als auch bei fnatic nun diverse neue Spieler unter Vertrag. Das britische Mäuse-Aufgebot wurde im Zuge dessen entlassen.
Ab sofort der 'clevere Däne'
Deutschlands bekanntester Clan konzentriert sich fortan wieder nur auf ein deutsches Aufgebot in Counter-Strike und entlässt somit die Briten rund um Sam 'RattlesnK' Gawn, welche in letzter Zeit allerdings mit einem guten Resultat auf der DreamHack Winter auf sich aufmerksam machten.
Doch damit nicht genug. Auch das deutsche Team durchlebt diverse Wechsel. Die beiden ehemaligen CS:S-Profis Hendrik 'strux1' Goetzendorff und Dimitrios 'stavros' Smoilis müssen das Team verlassen. Ihre Plätze werden von dem bereits erwähnten Finn 'karrigan' Andersen, welcher auch die Rollen des Team-Captains und Ingameleaders übernehmen wird, und dem alt-Mouzler Michele 'zonixx' Köhler eingenommen.
Der Wechsel von Andersen hinterlässt folglich auch eine Lücke bei fnatic. Dort wird jedoch auch Andreas 'MODDII' Fridh die Segel streichen und das Team verlassen. Unterstützung bekommt das in London administrierte Team zunächst von Morten 'frozt' Frost und Magnus 'JOERKN' Barthel. Beide werden vorerst nur als Stand-In in der ESEA Season 13 CS:GO Invite Division agieren.

Hello all! Today is the day I and Fnatic go our separate ways after almost 1 year with wonderful memories to take the trip out here and just want to thank everyone who gave me the chance to show that I had what it took to be a part of fnatic family. I want to thank my teammates that I had during this year that has made me a better player, and above all, a much better person and all my FANS. Thank you all!
Finn 'karrigan' Andersen
From this day on, I will not present the black and orange colours anymore, as I have done for the last 8 months. For me is has personally been the best year of my eSport career, we in fnatic have won several tournaments in CS 1.6 since I joined, the first one we won was at Copenhagen Games back in April, in a final that I will not forget for a long time, with several overtimes against Na`Vi.
When I transferred from mouz to fnatic back in March, I was so eager to win my first big international event and it happened directly at the first tournament. It never stop ending though, we won several tournaments in a row and without a single loss in 1.6 since June, we became the best team of 2012. An achievement that I will never forget, because 1.6 had a special place in my heart and all that pashion and time I put into achieve something finally paid off, especially when FnaticRC gave me the chance to join up in late March.
I want to thank FnaticRC for everything they have done for me, especially when they gave me the chance to join up with them and be a part of the history in FnaticRC. There are some memories I will never forget, lately we have been to several tournaments and had a very busy autumn, which have been more than a success history. Within 1 month we played 3 different games, several CS 1.6 tournaments which we all won, CS:Online at K1-league where we finished 3rd and latest tournament at DreamHack Winter where we played CS;GO and ending up going out of groupstage, after a 16-14 loss to mouz.uk.
These last months have giving me so much experience inside the game but as well outside the game, which I will never forget about, all the funny moments we had with the team and especially one trip comes to mind, our PR-tour to Iran, which was one of the best experience I ever had in my life. All of this would never have happened without a fnatic organization, that has been a privilege to play for and always kept their word in any situations, which a lot organization can learn from.
I want to thank all the players and the people who work around the Fnatic organization, for a perfect job and a very well functioning organization. The players gux, xizt, friis, trace, moddii, fyrrte and rytter that have been a part of this lineup, it has been amazing time with you guys. When all this is said, I want to give a special thanks to carn, who has been around the team all the time, always been there for the team, to make everything easier, he has really done a great job to keep everything running smooth within the organization. Then I want to thank all these amazing supporters out there, that have been cheering for fnatic for a long time, have been sticking around for our decisions to end CS 1.6 with manner and of course the little late switch we made, which for me was the right decision looking back in the mirror, so a lot of thanks to the black and orange fans.
We would like to thank Fnatic for their professional attitude in our negotiations about the trading of Finn 'Karrigan' Andersen. When we released Finn out of his contract in March 2013 to allow him to continue his career in Fnatic after we've closed our CS 1.6 division in mousesports, it was purely for his personal best and it's great to see that Fnatic did the same as of today.
