ImageWith the departure of Richard "Xizt" Landström to NiP earlier today, Fnatic has announced that they will keep the Counter-strike 1.6 team for now.

Replying the announcement about SE Richard 'Xizt' Landström joining NiP early today, Fnatic released a news post about the departure of their former in-game leader.

In the news post it is stated that the transfer to his new squad was made in a very professional way. The information that's missing is whether Landström had his contract terminated by fnatic or if NiP bought him out.

Patrik "cArn" Sättermon said about the move:
"Richard joined Fnatic in late 2010 and even though there were many changes over time, he stayed loyal to the team and continued growing and improving both as a player and as a person. He has had an amazing run with Fnatic, starting with DreamHack winter victory and later on defending that title. When I retired he became team captain and lead Fnatic to become the best team in 2012 with five consecutive victories: Copenhagen Games, Fnatic Counter-Strike League, Esport SM, DreamHack Summer and GameGune 2012. It's sad to see him go now, but he wants to continue his pro-gaming career in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and we as a team are not ready to make that switch just yet. We will continue playing the game we love, Counter-Strike 1.6, and want to wish Richard all the best in his future.We also want to thank him for all the time and dedication that he has put into Fnatic."


With Landström joining the new NiP CS:GO, Fnatic currently composed by only four players. It is expected that the fifth player to complete the team will be announced in the upcoming week.

Fnatic is now:
DK Michael "Friis" Jørgensen
DK Finn "karrigan" Andersen
DK Martin "trace" Heldt
SE Andreas "MODDII" Fridh
