Fnatic bootcamps for TI3 in Belgrade, Serbia
Fnatic will be moving to their gaming house in Belgrade on the 1st of June as they intend to bootcamping before their first appearance in The International 3. Fnatic's first stop will be Dreamhack Summer mid next month.
Upon receiving the invite to participate in The International 3, the Fnatic.Dota2 organization has scrambled to provide the best for their budding Dota 2 players by setting up a gaming house in Belgrade, Serbia. The Fnatic Dota 2 squad will be bootcamping in Belgrade for 2 months in preparation for their first The International 3 appearance.
As reported on the Fnatic website, Fnatic's recent drop in participation was mostly due to Tal 'Fly' Aizik's unavoidable real life commitments. Fnatic confirmed to GosuGamers that Fly is now back and will commit fully to Dota 2.
Statement by Danijel 'Street' Remus, Fnatic's General Manager:
"We are working really hard in cooperation with our sponsors to make the best possible conditions for our teams and players. This bootcamp is going to be a perfect one, after the team not being able to play together for a while, as all of that is about to change really soon. They will be living in Belgrade for two months and work really hard in order to improve their performance and, along preparing for The International 3, prepare for DreamHack Summer and hopefully for EMS, D2L and StarLadder lan finals. Expect good content from the house and a lot of good stuff, and of course great results. Thanks to our fans for continued support and our sponsors, MSI, SteelSeries, Eizo and Twitch for making this happen!"
Fnatic will be leaving Belgrade to visit Dreamhack Summer on the 19th of June, one of the many events on their itinerary. Meanwhile, Fnatic will continue to compete in a wide array of European online tournaments such as The Defense 4, EMS One, The Premier League and Star Series VI.
Fnatic members will be in Belgrade by the 1st of June.
In a short interview, Kaale 'Trixi' Saarinen, Fnatic's off-lane players shared his thoughts on his move to Serbia by June.
Kalle 'Trixi' Saarinen
I have mixed feelings of coming to Serbia. I'll have to leave everything behind for the whole summer and there's going to be some people I'll really miss. On the other hand, it's always nice to go to a new country and see lots of new things. Hopefully, we'll manage to practice hard and overcome the huge lack of practice we've had for a few months.
Fnatic Dota2 team was among the first five to be invited to The International 3. Their solid and consistent runs in many tournaments during the first half of the year have impressed many although Fnatic did not end up winning any of them, coming second in The Defense 3 and Star Series V.
