Fnatic welcomes SaSe
Posted 2013-03-03 Inz
We promised you a while back that we would be adding more players to our StarCraft II division. Last month we added both Pink and Zanster to our academy and now we have more amazing news! As of today, we will be adding Kim "SaSe" Hammar to our Professional StarCraft II squad. The recent additions to our StarCraft squad are a main reason as to why we were so excited for 2013 and we hope you are equally as excited.
Most of you know that SaSe was a member of Fnatic during his time playing WarCraft 3 and it will be a pleasure to have him back for StarCraft II. SaSe has been at the forefront of Protoss innovation in the first expansion of StarCraft II and has been working hard to improve himself for the upcoming release of Heart of the Swarm.
Below you will find statements from both our Chief Gaming Officer, Patrik "cArn" Sättermon and Kim "SaSe" Hammar.

Today we are thrilled to welcome Kim "SaSe" Hammar to the Fnatic family.
We have had our eyes on Kim for quite some time now, and with the recent reconstruction of our Starcraft 2 division we feel that the Swedish Protoss star is a perfect match for our ambitions and goals in 2013.
This is in fact not the first time Hammar sports the Fnatic jersey. In 2005, SaSe was a feared Nightelf representing our Warcraft 3 division, so we are extra proud to be able to welcome Kim back to our ranks once again.
We are confident that the addition of Hammar will boost our divisions strengths in team leagues, and we have a lot of faith in SaSe in his upcoming events, such as MLG Dallas in mid March.
However, the fans will not need to wait long to see SaSe's first official match representing Fnatic. We can now confirm that SaSe will be one of the foreign players to participate in the Taiwan eSports League starting today.
We would also like to thank SteelSeries, MSI, EIZO and Twitch for your awesome support, and let us all hope and work hard for a great 2013 in eSports!

I am really happy to have found such a stable team in fnatic. Now I feel like I don't have to worry anymore and can focus 100% on improving my play. Fnatic was the first professional team I joined when I was a kid back in 2005. It's amazing to see how much they have grown over the years. I hope as the year goes by I can show a lot of great games and perfomances! Hear of the Swarm is being released soon and it is time to release the new SaSe aswell! Thank you everyone who has supported me and I would be really happy if you kept doing so! Fighting! ^_^
