    Fnatic Pick Up Gimme My Money
    Last Sunday it was rumoured that Australian organisation, Fnatic were picking up a Halo Reach team based in North America. We can now confirm that the rumours were indeed correct and Fnatic have picked up Gimme My Money.

    It comes to no surprise after Kyle 'Chig' Lawson revealed via Twitter that he and his fellow Americans will be representing Fnatic. The team are seeded in 11th place for the next stop in the Major League Gaming circuit which kicks off in Columbus on the 3rd June. The team have a tough pool where they will play the likes of Str8 Rippin, Believe The Hype & Instinct.
    Justin “Spikemouth” Saboo is the coach for team and had this to say,

    Fair play Fnatic. Good luck to the team! Should be good to see a well known org up in the Halo MLG spotlight.

    Very good step fnatic! My bets on the next organisation to recruit an MLG team will be EvilGeniuses.

    I think with EvilGeniuses, being an American based organization anyway, they would have probably picked up a team to attend MLG by now if it was on their agenda.

    My bet's on SK.

    Difference now is that one of their main rivals "fnatic, SK, mouz, Millenium and Dignitas" have entered the scene so it's shows a profitable market. No offence to Power as they are a top European organisation but for games like SCII and Quake the only real contenders for EvilGeniuses is those mentioned above.

    Power have their EU Halo team which place respectably at MLG the majority of the time, so can't see them picking up an American based team. It's true what your saying though, EvilGeniuses may well see it as an opportunity to beat a rival by trumping in with a better team. Would be nice to have a European based organization recruit a North American Halo team though! We'll just have to wait and see :)

    Bizarre choice by Fnatic. I know they probably couldnt get anyone higher seeded because of MLG contracts but if you want a team to finish 8th-16th then at least with an EU team you're going get more coverage. Would be interesting to know what they get for being part of them.

    Seems good for Fnatic are they keeping the EU Team or they dropped anyone no ?

    Potentially GMM could place very highly at events, they have alot of talent in their squad, hopefully they do succeed for the sake of Fnatic
