The 19-year-old is the Terran Fnatic as been looking for and they have hopes to see him "create the magic we saw a few years back from him at DremHack".

- "I am very excited to see Naama in our lineup as I believe he has been fairly unlucky post his early success in StarCraft 2. I do think he still has it in him and with our support I believe he can reach the top of Europe once again," said Fnatic's general manager Elroy Pinto about the new addition.

Lahtinen will later this year join the rest of the StarCraft 2 team in the gaming house of Fnatic in Korea. Naama says on the team website that he knows this will give him a lto of motivation now that he can fully focus on his own gameplay.

- "I'm really glad that I got the opportunity to represent a top tier team once more," said Naama.

Naama was reported to have renewed his contract with organization Absolute Legends six days ago, but the offer from Fnatic was seemingly better for the DremHack Winter 2010 champion.

The Finnish Terran will make his debut in the black-and-orange colors already tonight at the second stage of the European qualifier of Intel Extreme Masters gamescom.
