Fnatic sign UK CSGO players Alex and Mezii

London-based esports giant Fnatic have brought two UK CSGO players onto their roster: William ‘mezii’ Merriman and Alex ‘ALEX’ McMeekin.

The pair previously played at Cloud9 together before the org put their CSGO operations on hold, and earlier this year, mezii joined UK esports organisation Endpoint.

ALEX will be the in-game leader for Fnatic’s CSGO side, and the pair join Swedish players KRIMZ, Brollan and Jackinho.

Mezii said: “I’m excited to finally announce that I’ve joined the Fnatic family! I’ve achieved a lot with the Endpoint boys and wish them the best going forward. I’m ready to grind with this great international roster and represent new colours under a historic org.”

ALEX added: “It is with immense pride that I join Fnatic. I am honoured to be given the opportunity to represent such a legendary team. I have nothing but respect for the legacy the past teams have created here and I know that there are big shoes to fill. I am looking forward to working alongside the Fnatic to develop the team’s performance both on and off the server.”

Fnatic announced the new pair of signings on Twitter, with more insight from head coach Andreas Samuelsson on the Fnatic website, while Endpoint thanked mezii for his time with the organisation.

Fnatic chief gaming officer Patrik ‘cArn’ Sättermon recently spoke of the future of Fnatic’s CSGO division in a video.

Earlier this year, Endpoint became the most-decorated ESL UK & Ireland Premiership team after winning their fifth CSGO Prem in a row.

Over the past year, a lot of CSGO players have moved across to Valorant, with several UK players like Fnatic Boaster getting a new lease of life with the game.
