Today we are happy to announce that we have come to an agreement with Niels Henning Top, known as Rizc and Niels "Phoinx" Bergbjerg Moller. They will be the latest addition to the Fnatic TV team and will bring you lots of of CS:GO content. We are proud to have such a dedicated casters in our team and look forward to working together with them.
Ricz and Phoinx join us from ESPlanet where they worked as streamers and casters for quite some time now. They've made a name for themselves, but now they are looking for new challenges. They will continue covering major events and add additional spotlight to our CS team. We will bring you more VoD coverage, interviews and other exciting things.
Our General Manager, Danijel Remus, had following to say:
Streaming plays a big part in eSports nowadays and will only grow more. It's on a good level already, we've seen great production and casting performances by many people in tournaments, shows, player live streaming and more. We at Fnatic want eSports enthusiasts to experience high quality streams and casts, not only by watching games of our teams, but also other competitions our casters will be covering. We have teamed up with Rizc and Phoinx as they have shown quality and dedication over the past months, covering a lot of tournaments and doing it with big passion and great productions, with what they had to work with. Welcome guys, and hopefully you will all see our CS:GO players streaming as well, we are working on it. Thanks to MSI, SteelSeries, Eizo and Twitch for their support.
We are very happy to announce our new home in the eSports-sphere. Joining forces with FNATIC seemed like the right choice for us since we have the same goals and dreams in eSports and we both want to grow the community and help the games grow themselves.
Change is a big and scary thing, but luckily the general feedback from the community has been so good that we won't change much in our streams and content, it will be the same casters and the same style that you are used to, just in a better and smoother package.
This whole merging process will bring all of you (fans, viewers, casuals) even more streams and weekly content across different games and more focus on the great brand that is FNATIC and its players.
