Despite reaching the League of Legends World Championship finals last year, Fnatic didn't manage to hit the same heights this time around, and now Mads 'Broxah' Brock-Pedersen has spoken out about the perceived scapegoating of players in an interview with Dexerto.
"I've been getting more flame from fans than I have ever experienced in my career, fans have been aggressive, negative, toxic... it's been something different," he began. "It's been pretty brutal seeing a lot of Fnatic fans saying that I was the only reason that we lost at Worlds. I don't even know how fans can come to the conclusion any one player was the only reason we didn't beat FPX. It's pretty next level."
"We still left our mark on the tournament... I'm by no means satisfied, we could have beat FPX, but we got out of the hardest group at Worlds with RNG and SKT, week two Fnatic was back and we really stepped up," he added.
"If you want to scapegoat someone, you are actually trolling, and you need to stop being keyboard warriors. We lost as a team. It was a team effort to go as far as we did, it was a team effort in the Summer split to almost take down G2, it was a team effort to get out of the group of death. We win as a team, we lose as a team."
"I also want to make it clear that most fans are not like this. Most of you guys out there are great people, but there are a lot of people in this current moment that want to scapegoat people on my team, me and my teammates, and it's bull****."
