Fnatic is without a shade of doubt one of the biggest and most professional eSports groups in the world. Now this major power has decided to join World of Tanks eSports and we’re happy to welcome them! Fnatic issued a statement on their website last Friday about merging with one of the teams playing regularly on the North American server. You may have even seen them live if you watched the WGL NA Season 3 Finals, which took place last weekend.
Below you can find a statement from Robert Wylie, Chief Gaming Officer:
On behalf of Fnatic I am pleased to officially welcome ex. Fulcrum Gaming to our family, by doing so we are of course announcing Fnatic’s entry into competitive World of Tanks, a game that has seen a tremendous growth over the past year, with over 85 million players worldwide.
We had the opportunity to meet Fulcrum Gaming at PAX last year, where we realised that we are both on the same page when it comes to professionalism, as well as the passion for our sports. The discussions between the two parties were again intensified in 2014, and I would like to specifically thank David and Kirill for the patience you and your team showed us during this process.
Fnatic always takes great pride in being the best in our sports, and I am confident that our World of Tanks team will be able to replicate Fnatic’s winning tradition into their sport for many years to come.
Without further ado, I am thrilled to welcome; David, Kirill, Kyle, Zhen Cheng, Javier, James, Alex, and Kolby to our already big family, and I wish you the best of luck on the battlefields in this week’s NA Finals.I would also like to extend our gratitude to MSI, SteelSeries, EIZO, King of Shaves, Winamax, and Fragnet Networks for their endless support - thank you!
Fnatic is one of the world's leading eSport organisations and has always made a tremendous impact on every game they've supported. Their new team in World of Tanks will be guarding the Fnatic legacy as they enter 2014.
