Published: 14 May 2024

Roster Update:

We’re excited to announce the signing of Benjamin “blameF” Bremer to the FNATIC CS lineup as one of our riflers. He will be joining us ahead of the CCT Global Finals this Friday; so be sure to catch his debut game on the FNATIC app.

“Bringing Benjamin into Fnatic is a significant move that indicates our ambition to return to the top echelons of competitive Counter-Strike. Benjamin is a franchise-level player whose impact goes beyond just his in-game ability. This acquisition marks a significant shift from our approach over the last few years, emphasising our commitment to not only participate but return to meaningful competition. Benjamin's consistent top-tier performance and leadership experience offered an opportunity to energise our roster and signal our intentions to the market.“

Ross Rooney, Esports Analysis & Strategy Manager

Benjamin will be joining us from Astralis, where he has consistently showcased his raw talent on the server. We’re excited to see the new level of play he’ll bring to the server with his experience and firepower representing the Black and Orange.

We want to thank everyone at Astralis for working with us on this transfer.

As always, we will continue to provide further updates as time goes on, improve our content offering and connect with you, the fans. For now, join us in welcoming BlameF to the team and cheer for the Black and Orange in our upcoming matches.

Kyuubii moved to the substitute roster

With this update comes the announcement of Can “Kyuubii” Ali move to the substitute roster for FNATIC Counter-Strike.

Having joined us from Sangal Esports, Can has been a brilliant addition to the team, bringing in a dynamic playstyle as well as a new sense of passion and drive for the game. As a young and hungry player, his natural strength on the server became even more evident over time, helping us fight our way through the open qualifiers to the closed qualifiers of the Copenhagen Major, in addition to securing us 1st place at the RES European Series #1 where he was the 2nd highest rated player across the tournament.

“Can is an exceptional young man, and we have great admiration for his skills and professionalism at such a young age. We fully expect him to have a long and successful career in Counter-Strike. This roster adjustment is in no way a reflection of his capabilities but is driven by a strategic opportunity we couldn’t pass up. While he transitions to our substitute roster, we will be actively exploring opportunities for Can, including loans.”

Ross Rooney, Esports Analysis & Strategy Manager

From all of us here at FNATIC, we want to thank Can for everything he’s done for us and the team and are excited to see his future in the CS scene.
