Fnatic is one of the household names within many Esports titles. Whether it’s Dota 2 or Valorant, you’ll find a roster from this organization competing at the top. In 2023, the organization found a lot of success at major tournaments around the globe.
The Valorant roster, led by team captain Boaster, finished 1st at the VCT 2023: Masters Tokyo in June. Unfortunately, they fell slightly short at the Valorant Champions 2023 (August) finishing 4th in a tough 2-1 loss to LOUD. The team will definitely be back to compete again very soon hoping to retake their crown.
The organization is continuing to develop, even after 20 years in the industry. Their experience and willingness to win will continue to keep them at the top of their game as we look to the future. Here’s everything you need to know…
Top Players: Boaster (Valorant), flusha (CS:GO), DJ (Dota 2)
Location: London, England
Founded: July 2004
Although Fnatic was founded in 2004, they really began to make strides in 2007 when they began to acquire teams in Dota. Alongside this team, Fnatic had a Counter-Strike roster that had previously won the CPL Singapore 2005 tournament.
When CS:GO launched, Fnatic became one of the biggest names on the scene. To finish off their incredible roster, the organisation brough on star players Xyp9x and JOKERN. Shortly after these new additions, thee team finsihed 3rd in the EMS Season 1 Finals.
Since then, it has been a somewhat bumpy road for the CS:GO team, however, they have endured this difficult period and still compete at the very top today.
Fnatic also has other teams in League of Legends, Rainbow 6, and Valorant. Recently, their Valorant roster has found a lot of success with a win at the VCT 2023: Masters Tokyo and a top 4 finish at the Valorant Champions 2023 narrowly missing out to LOUD.
