The two legendary members of eSports team, Fnatic, were at the event to share their thoughts on their lives as professional gamers and impart their invaluable tips and must-have skills to succeed as professional gamers.
Fnatic is a leading organization in eSports with professional teams across a variety of popular games like League of Legends, Dota 2 and Counter Strikes: Global Offensive scene (CS:GO). Fnatic teams attend more than 75 international gaming events annually and have won numerous world championships across multiple game titles.
Counter Strike player, former captain of the team and now Fnatic’s Chief Gaming Officer, Patrik ‘cArn’ Sättermon is one of the most recognisable faces in the world of PC gaming.
Joining him is 22 year-old Jonatan ‘Devilwalk’ Lundberg who started gaming at a very early age as most gamers these days do. Famed ‘Devilwalk’ of Fnatic’s Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) rose to prominence when his team clinched back-to-back victories at the prestigious DreamHack Winter Championships. He now also coaches Fnatic’s CS:GO team who have dominated major competitions like FACEIT League Season 2 Championships and ESL One Cologne.
Gamers at the event were elated at the opportunity to try their hand at three different gaming features at the Live Demo area and the chance to win attractive prizes. Of course, nothing compared to the chance to play with (and against) ‘Devilwalk’, ‘cArn’ and other local professional gamers in a bracket-system tournament.
