The Fnatic organization is a heavyweight in esports. Supporting successful teams around the world, they have won titles in every major competitive game over the last decade. In March 2011, Fnatic established an early foothold in League of Legends’ then-blossoming competitive scene by signing the players of MyRevenge. In June, the investment paid off: FnaticMSI.LoL defeated against All authority and became the first League of Legends World Champions. In November of that year, they added North America to their list of conquered continents by taking IEM New York over their esports rivals, SK Gaming.
In April 2012, they attempted to expand their horizons at Azubu The Champions Spring in Korea, but left with a disappointing 5-8th place. In the months following their defeat, the team lost three of its founding members and began a long journey to rebuild its roster. Finally rekindling the success of their early days, the reformed roster took first place at Dreamhack Winter 2012, and followed it with a 2nd place finish at IPL5. Despite their successes, however, they knew that their new star AD Carry did not meet the LCS’s minimum age requirements. Just weeks before the team was set to compete, veteran AD Carry YellOwStaR joined the squad.
Fnatic hold a major advantage moving into Season 3: experience. All of their players carry the battle scars and conditioning of dozens of LAN events. With the wealth of experience earned by more than two years on the competitive trail, Fnatic is more than prepared to extend their dynasty in League of Legends Season 3.
