Overwatch: Hafficool Signs!
Posted 2017-01-13 Jakazolo
It was as far back as October when Fnatic Overwatch first announced their search for a new DPS. Initially holding open tryouts for the position, one player in particular was quick to perk the attentions of our management team.
Hafþór "Hafficool" Hákonarson came to the team in November, fresh from some impressive tournament displays with his previous team, Ninjas with Attitude, and with little time to prepare for DreamHack Winter which was lurking only a few weeks away. Not that it mattered. Hafficool made an instant impact, gelling easily with his new team mates and pushing hard for a maiden tournament victory, only to fall at the final hurdle against an in-form Misfits.
Since then he has rightfully earned his plaudits after world class performances at MLG Vegas, with a semi-final finish only fuelling the team’s desire to earn top honours.
In Haffi, our Overwatch team has gained an outstanding DPS Flex player, and we’re thrilled to have now signed him on a permanent basis. With his ability, his positive attitude and sheer will to win, we’re confident that we’ll soon see Fnatic etched onto OW silverware.

I'm really excited to join Fnatic, it's been a long term goal of mine to play professionally! Fnatic has been an organisation I've always looked up to and it's really exciting to be a part of it now. I really get along with all the Fnatic members and i meshed well with them personally early on, especially my love Vonethil, and I can't wait to go to Korea with them.

I am delighted to announce that we are officially signing Hafficool as our new Overwatch starting Flex/DPS player. Hafþór took very little time to mesh with the rest of the team and was able to quickly adapt to the team's needs. With our eyes now set on OGN Apex Season 2, we are excited to have him wearing our colours during our time in Korea!
