Fnatic & Godsent Transfer Agreement
Posted 2017-02-04 Lepertum
Today, both Fnatic and Godsent are excited to announce the transfer of Jesper “JW” Wecksell, Robin “flusha” Rönnquist, Joakim “disco doplan” Gidetun and Simon “twist” Eliasson. This transfer will see the late 2015, early 2016 Fnatic roster reunited and the transfer of Disco Doplan and Twist to Godsent.
Looking back we realise we've caused a lot of confusion and unnecessary drama amongst Fnatic fans; everyone involved is hugely apologetic for how the last few months unfolded, but sometimes it takes a period of time apart to realise how special a bond was. After cracks began to appear in the team chemistry, abrupt decisions were made in the heat of the moment. Now after having time to contemplate, all members have reconciled and are more motivated than ever to reunite, and get back to the Fnatic of old.
Below you can read statements from our CGO Patrik “cArn” Sättermon and Godsent’s Markus "pronax" Wallsten on the transfer.

Today we are announcing the return of JW and Flusha, who will reunite with Dennis, Krimz and Olofmeister with immediate effect.
Needless to say, the aftermath of the team’s split in August came with many challenges and although we have shown great promise of late, we are confident that the revival of our old line-up will accelerate our journey towards once again being the best Counter-Strike franchise in the World.
Speaking about challenges, we have just entered the most competitive year of esports and we appreciate that it’s not only about tackling our rivals in-game, but also about maintaining harmony within our group. I believe I speak for all our players when I say that the past months have been a time of many learnings, and the opportunity we once again get will not be taken for granted.
I would like to use this moment to thank twist and disco doplan for their awesome contributions to our team and organisation, and I wish them and Godsent the best of luck in the future!
Markus "pronax" Wallsten, GODSENT
We are extremely excited about today's swap and have looked forward to presenting the new line-up including Joakim "disco doplan" Gidetun and Simon "twist" Eliasson. We're building a new, energetic and hungry team and both players are perfect fits for us and the way we want to play.
Our ambition is to grow as a team and to play a major role in all tournaments, we take part in, and we feel that the new combination is a major step in this direction.
We wish JW and flusha all the best and thank Fnatic for making this work out. We look forward to the future clashes between the two teams.
We are ecstatic to have finalized the transfer agreement that will see Jesper “JW” Wecksell and Robin “flusha” Rönnquist return to Fnatic. We would like to extend our gratitude to Joakim and Simon for everything they have done for us, they are a pair of incredible players and we wish them the absolute best moving forward with their careers in Godsent.

Looking back at the split we had in August, it was a decision made very hastily by emotions rather than results. Our perception of ourselves lead to the fact that nothing but a tournament win was acceptable and the pressure that came with it was not healthy. Even the best can't win all tournaments, and that is okay; we've realized that now and matured from it. We are now 110% focused, determined and confident, and we will work day and night to reclaim the #1 spot in the world.
Robin “flusha” Rönnquist, Fnatic CS:GO
It's kind of funny how when the rumours came up, players from other teams would ask me if there was any truth in them. I could feel that it was not out of curiosity but rather fear that they were asking.
I know now that what we had was a very special combination of players; a great team. I've learned that now and the other teams have every right to be afraid.
Freddy “KRiMZ” Johansson, Fnatic CS:GO
Winning 6 tournaments in a row put our minds in a state where we not only could but should win everything. We had a huge setback with Olof's injury and even when he recovered we tried to find new excuses as to why we didn't win everything, eventually leading to the split. I've had a great time since, getting to know new players and all but I can’t deny that I've missed this team and I feel like we still have a lot to show.
