The Call of Duty has been answered
Posted 2017-01-21 Jakazolo
The year is 2012; the last 12 months have seen little activity from our decorated Call of Duty team prompting questions about their long term future. Having spent long stretches dominating the scene, Fnatic bow out with an uncharacteristic whisper, releasing their roster and withdrawing from the franchise.
Fast forward five years and here we are still, but with a lurking feeling that there is unfinished business with CoD; that there was still more to achieve; more silverware to be won. We’re proud now to be able to put that right as we resume competition in one of the world’s biggest esports titles.
Introducing our new Call of Duty Infinite Warfare roster: Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren, Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall and Gurdip ‘SunnyB’ Bains, all of the former Epsilon fame come together to form the foundations of our team, with the addition of Bradley ‘wuskin’ Marshall completing the lineup.
The all UK squad will be based in their home nation, donning our own black and orange for the first time when they compete at Gfinity’s CWL London. The LAN event will be held from the 26th - 29th January and will be streamed live on Twitch, so don’t miss it. We can’t wait to see them in action!

I feel absolutely blessed to be forming the foundations of this new roster under the FNATIC banner. FNATIC is one of the biggest organisations in the world, it's very much surreal and hasn't sunk in yet. This opportunity we've been given is one in a million and we will not take it for granted. I cannot wait to start competing with the team under FNATIC, we hope to bring the best possible results throughout the 2017 season and make the CWL LAN league.
Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren
Going all the way back to when I first began competing on Call of Duty 4, there has always been one team I've wanted to play for and represent. That team is FNATIC. They are one of if not thee biggest organisation in the World and I feel honoured that Sunny, Skrapz, wuskin and I will be playing under their banner for the IW season. I cannot express how grateful we all are that we've been given this opportunity along with everything FNATIC have already done for us.

After being out from Call of Duty for a couple of years we are super excited to return to action and compete among the best teams in the world in Call of Duty World League. We have had a dialogue with Tommey for many years about establishing a strong UK roster and we are now confident that him and his teammates got what it takes to once again put Fnatic on the Call of Duty map.
