Team History

The Fnatic organization is considered as one of the heavyweights in esports, winning tournaments in every major competitive game over the last decade. The formation of the 2011 League of Legends team resulted in a Season 1 World Championship title. During the next year, the team was plagued by inconsistency and metagame shifts that ended with the original lineup breaking apart (only xPeke and Cyanide remained).

Fast forward one year, Fnatic's resurgence at IPL5 marked the beginning of the team's return to relevance. They entered the LCS with momentum on their side and, despite the departure of nRated from the support role, Fnatic was able to maneuver past their opposition and secure Europe's top seed in the Season 3 World Championships. However, their deep postseason run was ended by Royal Club Huang Zu in a 1-3 series.

With their star AD Carry Rekkles (from the IPL5 squad) finally of age to compete in the LCS, Fnatic looked to the 2014 Spring Split to prove themselves in the new year. After a season of win and loss streaks, Fnatic’s future was called into question for a time. In splendid fashion, Fnatic ended the split upright, and took first place once again, this time earning an invitation to the 2014 All-Star event. In Paris, Fnatic looks toward a legendary meeting of former World Champions, slated to meet TPA (Champions of Season 2) and SKT T1 K (Champions of Season 3) at the competition. With the recent 2nd place finish at IEM Katowice, Fnatic looks to Paris and the All-Star event to prove that their strongest international play is still to come.
