Il tramonto dei FnaticWhatsApp
Il team Fnatic è ormai da anni uno dei più amati e più conosciuti, e i loro giocatori sono stati singolarmente delle colonneper quanto riguarda l’e-sports mondiale.
Recentemente il team ha perso la sua punta di diamante, il marksman Martin “Rekkles” Larsson, player che si era distinto particolarmente per le sue avanzate e perfette mechanics da AD carry.
Martin, dopo aver abbandonato il team Fnatic, ha invece joinato il team Alliance, sostituendo il loro AD carry Erik “Tabzz” van Helvert.
A seguire l’uscita di Martin, sono Enrique “xPeke” Cedeño-Martinez e Lauri “Cyanide” Happonen. Sono così rimasti del vecchio roster solo due player, ovvero sOAZ e YellowStar.
xPeke ha intenzione di creare un nuovo team, che pare si chiami Origen. Difatti, egli ha già aggiunto una foto su Facebook, che sicuramente rappresenta il logo del nuovo team.
Questo logo è inoltre presente sul sito Origen.gg
xPeke ha vissuto la sua carriera degli e-sports totalmente con i Fnatic, avendo vinto con essi anche i World Championship della Season 1.
Con queste scarne righe, Enrique saluta i Fnatic:
“I have a lot of god things to say about Fnatic, and my teammates. But to not make it too long I’ll say there is only one reason for me to leave fnatic and it is fulfill this dream I have had for a long time now… And I think now its the time to go for it and create my own team.
At some point I said that I was gonna stay in fnatic for the next year and that’s because I thought so that way, but with the events that have happened lately I thought that this was the time to have a change in my life and start this new adventure.”
Cyanide, invece, annuncia il suo ritiro da League of Legends. In queste righe parla del suo ritiro ma non esclude un suo futuro possibile ritorno.
“Ever since season 3 world championships I didn’t like the game as much. I got totally burned out there and really never regained my thrive to play. Entire season 4 I wasn’t able to play as much and stay focused as I was before just due to simple boredom of the game. I tried my best but overall I feel like my season 4 was disappointing from my part and I didn’t play at the level I used to. I had my moments, but I’m incredibly self critical and put a ton of pressure on myself and I considered retiring already during the season as I was unhappy. I decided to play until the Championships as I thought I’d be able to get my shit together and perform as I did in the past.
However, that was not the case. I always told everyone that the time to retire as a pro is when you lose the passion for the game and that arguably happened to me already a year ago but I wasn’t able to recognize it. I thought I could force myself to practice and keep up focus through sheer power of will but I was wrong. That being said, I still enjoy playing League more casually, just not the insane hours required to be a top competitive player in tournaments. I always played multiplayer games with the goal in my mind to be the very best like noone ever was. I see now that is not possible with League as I am now. I hate the thought of playing a game competitively with the goal of being average which I could easily do but that’s not who I am.”
