Christopher Alesund

Christopher has not been part of the Counter-Strike history from the very early days, but from the very moment he hit the public eye he instantly impressed everyone. Fnatic immediately realized the potential of this unmatched expert aimer and he racked up a great deal of medals in his almost two year period, many of which were gold. The young Swede never seemed to crumble under pressure and was always passionate about the games. For Christopher winning and being the best at Counter-Strike were his primary focus. There's not a soul in Counter-Strike history that would overlook Christopher when it came ot handing out the top honour, proven by his doule ESL award: Counter-Strike Player of the Year and eSports Player of the Year 2009.

Alexander Ingary

While Ztrider was good at several games, there are no doubt about that PainKiller was the perfect game for him. Much like his fellow Fnatic Hall of Famer, Sander 'Vo0' Kaasjager, Ztrider had the perfect playstyle for the fastpaced game. Ztrider didn't ride the waves of the victory into the World Championships however, as he finished on 6th place following defeats against Stermy and zyz. However with his overall career winnings totalling over $78,000, no one can ever say that Ztrider wasn't one of the best duellers of the PK era.

There are few people in the world that has had a bigger impact on the Fnatic brand than Laurens 'Lauke' Pluijmaekers.

As with the other members on our iconic PainKiller team, Andre 'gellehsak' Ryder had his best time in Fnatic during the CPL World Tour in 2005. Just like his former team mate Sander 'Vo0' Kaasjager, Ryder came from a QuakeWorld and Quake 3 CPMA background, making the fastpaced PainKiller a perfect fit for the Canadian.
