About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together guides and news across the site.

Fnatic have confirmed that Brollan will be joining their CS:GO roster, replacing Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom who has been standing in for the team since Robin “flusha” Ronnquist stepped down from the squad in September.

Brollan’s the second player to join fnatic from Red Reserve, with Simon “twist” Eliasson also transferring to the team two weeks ago.

Only 16 years of age, the young Swede first played for fnatic as a stand-in for Freddy “Krimz” Johansson last year at the WESG 2017 European qualifiers, an event which the team went on to win.

Breaking into the Counter Strike scene at 15 years old, Brollan finished second place as part of a team called GAMERZ, formed during the first series of an esports reality TV show.

Jesper “JW” Wecksell - now the longest standing member of fnatic - expressed great confidence in Brollan's signing:

“I am very excited to welcome Brollan to Fnatic, not only because it means we finally have a full team again but also because I know that Ludvig is the final piece of the puzzle.

He is extremely talented, he has a hunger that spreads within the team and he is an extremely hard worker. I see the 16-year old version of myself in him.

The motivation within the team has never been higher, and now it’s time to get back to business and show people exactly what we are made of.

A new era is coming - welcome, Ludvig!”

Brollan’s due to make his first appearance for fnatic next Wednesday in the ESL Pro League and will be part of the lineup that’ll go to the IEM Katowice Major in February.
