I'm ecstatic that we've decided to move into Rocket League and I'm even more excited about the group of guys we've signed.

History[edit]

Season 4[edit]

Fnatic picked up The Leftovers prior to week 5 of RLRS S4, with the team sitting on a record of 6-0 after being knocked into the Rival Series by Aeriality (now Team Secret). They beat Endpoint 3-1 in their final match of League Play to head into the Promotion Playoffs with a record of 7-0. In the promotion playoffs, they immediately got their revenge on Team Secret with a 4-1 victory, before securing their promotion to RLCS S5 by coming back from 3-1 down to overcome Team EnVyUs. The offseason brought with it mixed results, with 1st place in the Shift Pro League: Gauntlet against Team EnVyUs being their best result. In the only non-invitational major of the offseason, DreamHack Leipzig, they took down Rocketeers and Guess Who on Day 1, before falling to G2 Esports in a close 3-2 series on Day 2, therefore missing out on the Playoffs. However, a 9-12th finish was still respectable in what was considered the most stacked tournament to date, and Fnatic fans remained confident going into RLCS, especially after they made it to the top four of the Ting Open Finals.

Season 5[edit]

Fnatic's RLCS run began well in Week 2, with a reverse sweep against exceL Esports giving them some momentum before coming up against world champions Gale Force eSports. Unfortunately, they were unable to overcome the powerhouse team and went down 3-1 in a relatively close series. However, Week 3 proved to be a disaster for the team, as they were swept by both CompLexity Gaming and FlipSid3 Tactics to put them at 1-3. Things wouldn't be getting better anytime soon, as they were beaten 3-1 by Team Vitality in Week 4. Their first series in Week 5, against Team EnVyUs, had to be delayed due to a power outage around the area of the RLCS Studio. Even after this delay, and despite going into the rematch with a one game advantage (as they had won the first and only game before the power outage), they were still taken down 3-2 before losing 3-1 against PSG eSports to finish a disappointing RLCS season in the bottom 2, and so they would have to play in the Promotion Playoffs once again. Elsewhere, in their debut season at the Gfinity Elite Series, Fnatic would perform decently, despite using substitutes for every week of the Group Stage. They finished 2-2 in their group, leaving them in 3rd place and progressing to the quarter-finals. However, here they would come up against a Renault Vitality side who were looking like the favourites to win the entire tournament and were defeated 4-1. Finally, the Promotion Playoffs rolled around, and Fnatic's first opponent would be the red-hot Team Secret, looking to take revenge for the previous season, which they did as Fnatic were beaten 4-2. After they overcame exceL in a 4-1 victory, Fnatic would once again have to face Team Secret. However, Secret had just lost an incredible series against Servette Geneva eSports, in which they were just moments away from securing a promotion. Despite this, Servette fought back and managed to push Secret down to the Losers' Finals in a winner-takes-all game. After losing game 1, Fnatic began to dominate, taking the second game 9-1 whereupon Secret began to crumble, falling back into the RLRS, meanwhile Fnatic would keep their spot in the RLCS for another season. The following off-season wouldn't see very much activity from Fnatic, as Sikii was removed from the team and was replaced by MummiSnow in order to make Fnatic the Danish super-team of Rocket League.

Season 6[edit]

Fnatic entered Season 6 with high hopes once again, as MummiSnow had been one of the top players of the RLRS. Despite these high hopes, they were crushed 3-0 by Team Dignitas in their first matchup of the season. To make things worse, they then lost to mousesports 3-1 to put them at a record of 0-2. The next week saw Fnatic gain their first victory, denying Renault Vitality a reverse sweep in game 5. It didn't get much better from there though, as they lost their next two series' against We Dem Girlz and FlipSid3 Tactics respectively, before sweeping CompLexity to give them a chance of escaping the Promotion Playoffs. However, they were swept by PSG eSports in their final game, pushing them down into the bottom two.
