The VALORANT scene welcomed another European powerhouse today. Fnatic announced its VALORANT roster, acquiring successful Europe-based SUMN FC’s roster. The reveal was made on Fnatic’s social media channels after the four-hour countdown.
A video clip in which the players’ highlights are shown was shared through Fnatic’s Twitter account within the announcement. Also, the organization’s officers published their thoughts in a statement.
“We’re so excited to finally join VALORANT,” said Chief Gaming Officer of Fnatic Patrik “cArn” Sättermon. “It’s been the No. 1 thing fans have been asking for since the game launched, and we’ve taken our time to identify a roster that fits our vision of competing for the top titles in every game we enter. With our record of success in FPS games such as Counter-Strike, we’re looking forward to writing this new chapter in Fnatic’s history, and building our legacy in a new title.”
The new Fnatic squad is a mixed European roster which has been performing well for a long time. Established in August, the team continues to compete with the same roster since adding Greek star Kostas “tsack” Theodoropoulos in October. They accomplished a couple of successes such as second place in First Strike: Europe and third-place in Red Bull Home Ground.
Alongside the officers of Fnatic, the team members showed their excitement and hype through Twitter. “It’s a blessing to have this opportunity and I can’t wait to see what the team can bring to the table moving on,” Mistic said. The squad’s captain, Boaster, thanked the fans: “Looks like the hard work just paid off, but hold up, as this is just the beginning. Thank you for all the support and I won’t let you down!”
Fnatic’s new VALORANT roster doesn’t have to wait to compete with their new banner as VALORANT Champions Tour Europe will start tomorrow. Fnatic’s VALORANT squad is:
- Jake “Boaster” Howlett
- Domagoj “Doma” Fancev
- James “Mistic” Orfila
- Muhammed “Moe40” Hariff
- Kostas “tsack” Theodoropoulos
- Jacob “mini” Harris (Coach)
