Fnatic Weekly: 11-0!

CHAMPIONS AGAIN! Fnatic HotS steamrolled the Western Clash this weekend, taking the trophy with a perfect 11-0 record.

The Quack Street Boys were unopposed in Kiev, sweeping aside the likes of Liquid and showing exactly why we’re the best in the world right now. It was plays like Breez’s insane diablo that illustrated the class divide, the tank dropping only once throughout the whole tournament. 11-0 is incredible, but a 118.0 KDA - that’s not a bad statistic to have in the bank either!

Among the organisation’s best moments, we are witnessing one of Fnatic’s greatest teams in action. Now let’s hold onto the top spot for as long as possible!

For our League of Legends team it’s been becoming almost business as usual. Friday’s LCS series put us up against ROCCAT, arguably our bogey team of the last year and really the strongest test of the team’s progress.

There were maybe some nerves on show, neither game being particularly clean. In the second match we even teetered on the edge of defeat but for Rekkles at his incredible best. The pick was maybe questionable before the start of Game 2, but the Swede proved why he’s always been considered one of the West’s strongest Jhin players.

Now the boys sit just one win away from securing first place, with the first of two chances coming this Thursday, we’re ready to smash it against NiP!

On a sadder note, Fnatic DotA were devastated to be leaving TI7 in the group stage. We’d achieved so much in just reaching the tournament, making a massive amount of progress over the last 3 months to qualify.

The performance in Seattle was poor though as we never really got going. It’s an awful feeling, but we’re determined to come back stronger. Not to mention we’re at the biggest esports event ever, let’s enjoy it!

The Week Ahead

The defining moment for Fnatic Call of Duty’s year comes this week at the 2017 CWL Championship! The boys have been stateside over the last 4 weeks, mixing competition in Columbus with bootcamping in Florida. From tomorrow, they’ll be live in Orlando fighting their way out of Group F for a knockout stage spot!

Meanwhile, LoL will look to secure first place in Group A and lock in a semi final spot at playoffs. NiP will be first up before we round out the split against G2 on Sunday.

Best of luck to both! We’re rooting for you.
