Fnatic.HoN switches to Dota 2

ImageThe void left with releasing the Serbian DotA 2 squad is filled with Fnatic's HoN team.

After being one of the most dominant teams in the HoN scene, Fnatic 's team chooses to switch over to Dota 2. This doesn't come as a surprise though, since when they released their Dota 2 team, fnatic stated that there will be some more news soon.

Only four of their players will be making the switch though, with DE Kai 'H4nn1' Hanbückers choosing not to follow his team. There is no official information at the moment as who their fifth player might be, but the teem has been seen scrimming with an ex-SK Gaming 's player DK Alexander 'CalculuS' Rathcke.

Here is what the player Jascha "NoVa" Markuse and Fnatic's general manager Danijel "StreeT" Remus had to say about the move as well as their future plans:

DE Jascha “NoVa” Markuse, Fnatic's Dota 2 support player:

"Everyone knew that sooner or later we had to make a decision regarding a possible switch to a more competitive game such as Dota 2. With the current Fnatic Dota 2 team being released it was only natural for us to get into the act and take the next step in our professional gaming career. We will keep playing Heroes of Newerth tournaments whenever it fits the schedule but reduce our training to a maximum of one day per week.

Ultimately we're just very excited to become a part of that and prove ourselves in this game. Dota 2, here we come!"

RS Danijel "StreeT" Remus, Fnatic's General Manager: 

"This decision is certainly one of the most, if not the most, important in the gaming careers of every player on the team and is strongly supported by the management. We are happy to continue the cooperation with the team and once again enter the Dota 2 scene after a short break. It is going to take a while for the team to adapt even though the games are similar, but yet so diffierent in many aspects. Even with Dota 2 being in closed beta, the community is getting big, more and more players daily, decent amount of tournaments with really good competition and we want to be part of it. The team will look to repeat success from Heroes of Newerth where they have been dominant for almost two years, winning many major tournaments. It's important to mention that the team will still compete in HoN tournaments like ESL Major Series which is currently in the group stage."

Current roster:

DK Johan “N0tail” Sundstein
DE Jascha “NoVa” Markuse
IL Tal “Fly” Aizik
SE Adrian "Era" Kryeziu

The only thing left now is to wait and see if the team can be as successful in DotA 2 as they were in HoN!
