Fnatic has signed William "draken" Sundin to its Counter-Strike:Global Offensive roster to repl Maikil "Golden" Selim.
Draken came into prominence in the CS:GO scene after winning the WCA 2016 World finals with Epsilon Esports, before making the move to go to Ninjas in Pyjamas.
It was reported Saturday that Draken would become a replacement for Golden, as Golden's future with Fnatic has been shaky since Richard "Xizt" Landström took over at the in-game leader role. Draken was taken out of the starting lineup after Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson was picked up by the NiP organization.
Andreas "Samuelsson" Samuelsson, the Fnatic CS:GO team director, wrote in the news release, "Firstly, I want to thank Maikil for everything we have achieved together. He has the biggest heart of all people I’ve ever met. He is a role model for young people across the world. He came from basically nothing to our Academy team to finally leading our main roster within only one year...I also want to welcome William to our team. William will take over the main AWP role and JW will play as a hybrid. With this, we think that our CT sides will be very strong now with two great AWPs."
