Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg (born June 10, 1988) is a Swedish professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player and former professional Counter-Strike who currently plays for Dignitas. Having played competitively since 2003, Lindberg, going by the pseudonym of "f0rest", is known for his long-standing performance and has widely gained a reputation within the sports scene as one of the greatest Counter-Strike players of all time. Lindberg is best known for his four years of tenure with Fnatic which he helped bring to prominence as the dominant team of 2009 and broke the record for the highest-earning team in a calendar year for Counter-Strike at the time as well as his almost decade-long stint with Ninjas in Pyjamas that saw the team creating an invincible dynasty in the early days of CS:GO with a record 87-map win streak.
