Henrik "FeTiSh" Christensen is a former professional Danish Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Counter-Strike: Source player. He has been inactive since the beginning of 2015, and there are some hints that he has "retired" including a reply to a fan on a tweet of his . He has recently made a small return to Counter-Strike, playing and livestreaming with fellow Danish players such as former teammate Bo "wantz" Vestergaard and Søren "socN" Falke.
FeTiSh's career in Counter-Strike: Source - 200?-2012
Christensen was formerly present in the Danish Counter-Strike: Source in 2006/7, previously playing for xpre, later playing for Roskilde Ravens as well as Reason Gaming for a while. By the summer of 2011, Christensen moved to CKRAS Gaming. A team where he was first widely discovered and known by the more niche community of Source players, compared to those on 1.6, also featuring the likes of René "cajunb" Borg, Steffen "3k2" Markussen and Bo "wantz" Vestergaard whom managed to reach the grand finals of ESWC 2011 in an attempt to take the cup from Kèvin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans' team, VeryGames.
Switching to Global Offensive & Copenhagen Wolves - 2013
In early 2013 Christensen, alongside a few of his former CKRAS teammates all made the switch to Global Offensive in early 2013, all forming the strong Danish force known as Copenhagen Wolves, alongside players such as Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen and Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz, however Markussen and Vestergaard did not last very long in the Wolves as one of the players became the team's coach, while the latter retired due to not liking the look of Global Offensive compared to Source. Throughout Christensen's time in the Wolves, he had managed to have an opportunity to play with new players, including the Danish Counter-Strike 1.6 player Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth as well as the 1.6 star known as Michael "Friis" Jorgensen. Also having the opportunity to play with previously unknown Source players such as Nicolaj "Nico" Jensen and Jacob "Pimp" Winneche, whom both reunited alongside Christensen in his second Team Dignitas lineup. Christensen and the wolves were especially known for attending the first ever Valve Major, known as Dreamhack Winter 2013, defeating SK Gaming and Astana Dragons in the group stage, resulting in them reaching the top seed of his team's group, but Christensen and his team had only reached up to the quarterfinals due to losing to VeryGames 6-16 on Dust II before bouncing back and winning 16-5 on Inferno, but then losing the last map, Mirage: 12-16.
über G33KZ and Team Dignitas - 2014
Exactly a week after the major, Copenhagen Wolves parted ways with Christensen and the rest of his teammates, resulting in them forming the temporary "über G33KZ" team until the team had found a new organization to support them. During the process of finding a new organization, the team decided to part ways with Nicolaj "Nico" Jensen and brought René "cajunb" Borg back from the dead (after being replaced by Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth in the Summer of 2013) one month prior to the orgless team being acquired by Team Dignitas.
This Team Dignitas lineup was arguably more successful than the previous Copenhagen Wolves lineup that all of the team members were in at least one stage in time, reaching the semifinals of ESL Major Series One: Katowice 2014. Dignitas reached the top seed of their team after defeating iBUYPOWER and Reason Gaming in the groups (later to be finished off by Fnatic), reaching the quarterfinals in order to defeat the CIS superteam known as HellRaisers before falling to Ninjas in Pyjamas in the semifinals, losing both maps: 16-6 on Inferno, then 16-5 on Nuke. In between the two majors; Katowice and ESL One: Cologne 2014, one of the more notable achievements earned by FeTiSh and Dignitas was winning FragBite Masters Season 2 versus Titan (formerly known as VeryGames) in a best-of-five final, thankfully having a map advantage due to reaching the grand finals of the tournament through the winner's finals. By the Cologne major began, cajunb left the team and was replaced by Philip "aizy" Aistrup, formerly of teams like Xapso and 3DMAX. This changed a few things for Dignitas, but FeTiSh and the rest of the team remained very strong contenders in the groups as always, however they lost out on the top seed into the quarterfinals due to being upset by Spencer "Hiko" Martin's Cloud9 (formerly known as compLexity Gaming), losing 16-14 on Mirage, causing them to have to face Titan in the consolidation match, but luckily FeTiSh & co breezed past winning 16-1 on Nuke. The same map where Titan managed to destroy the Australians of Vox Eminor on with the same score. As a result of Dignitas losing the top seed out of the group stage, the quarterfinals for FeTiSh and Dignitas got a lot easier for them as they swept through the second best French team in the tournament, known as Epsilon eSports, before falling to Fnatic in the semifinals, losing 16-11 on Dust II, then losing 16-14 on Overpass. Unfortunately, nothing else big happened until the Dreamhack Winter 2014 major, along with the return of cajunb and the departure of aizy. The results at this major were not as good as expected however, despite Christensen's team moving into the top seed for the third time in a major over the upcoming Germans of PENTA Sports (whom they won 16-9 on Nuke against in the first match of the group), also beating iBUYPOWER again 16-7, with their new additions of Nick "nitr0" Cannella and Derek "desi" Branchen, replacing Joshua "steel" Nissan and Sam "DaZeD" Marine respectively. When FeTiSh & co reached their next quarterfinal, they were matched up against Natus Vincere but unfortunately fell to them in the quarterfinal after an embarassing loss of 16-3 on Cobblestone, then losing 13-16 to them on Mirage later on in the quarterfinal.
Departure from Team Dignitas - Late 2014-Early 2015
A few weeks after FeTiSh & co exited Dreamhack Winter 2014 in an unexpected manner, the rest of Dignitas made the choice to kick Christensen from the team, after being in the team since the beginning of the lineup. A few weeks after this, Dignitas decided on a new fifth and managed to pick up the former Counter-Strike 1.6 player, known as Finn "karrigan" Andersen to play in FeTiSh's shoes, previously playing as a stand-in for the German team mousesports before making the switch to Dignitas. The team had entered only a few tournaments, including the MLG X Games Aspen Invitational under the Dignitas banner with karrigan, where they landed third place after beating Fnatic in the third place decider, shortly before being picked up by Team SoloMid.
During this time, FeTiSh had no choice but to find a new team and he finally made the decision to join the ex-Copenhagen Wolves team that his former teammate, aizy was in; known as Deponeret. They were shortly picked up by Team Dignitas not long after they released their former squad, consisting of FeTiSh's teammates and karrigan to Team SoloMid. FeTiSh slowly settled into the new Team Dignitas with the help of aizy as well as former Copenhagen Wolves teammates Nico and Pimp, also including the 16-year-old up and coming talent, Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye. Shortly after failing to qualify for ESL One 2015 Katowice over the Brazilian KaBuM TD lineup, he was replaced by Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen.
Returning to CS:GO, The Imperial & Coaching - Early 2016-Early 2017
On May 9th, 2016 it was announced that FeTiSh, wantz, socN, KS and kaspeR had joined The Imperial. Even after replacing kaspeR with mertz, the roster did not even last three months before disbanding after being dropped by the organization. FeTiSh was left teamless for six months before moving over to a new team - the team being team123 captained by Christian "rezex" Bjerregaard, previously notably known for in-game leading and captaining the Cringe Gods (the core of that team later becoming Epsilon eSports. Upon joining team123, he did not join as a player but as a coach. FeTiSh was also joined by a new fifth being Frederic "acoR" Gyldstrand, the replacement for Martin "martiNwk" Johannsen.
Moving into play with team123, the lineup was first seen with their new recruits, FeTiSh and acoR in the online league of ESEA Season 24 Premier as well as in various online qualifiers such as the Intel Extreme Masters Season XI World Championship open qualifiers 1 and 2. Both in which resulted in the team failing to qualify for the closed qualifier, which could've given them a chance to play at the tournament itself. Within the first qualifier, FeTiSh's team were placed against the new ALTERNATE aTTaX squad, though they had lost in a close 14-16 on Cobblestone in aTTaX's favour. Moving onto the second open qualifier, the team123 squad were placed against the Turkish Space Soldiers, which resulted in a 16-14 victory for team123 on Train. Moving into the second round, the deciding round to make it to the closed qualifier or not, team123 were placed up against rezex's old teammates' team, Epsilon eSports, in a best-of-three series to make it through to the closed qualifier. In general, the series was a close series which had Epsilon pick Overpass and team123 pick Nuke with Cobblestone as the decider. The teams both traded their map picks with team123 winning Overpass 16-12 and despite having a 13-2 half on the T side, Epsilon had managed to win 10 rounds on their T side before FeTiSh's team were finally able to close out the map. On the other hand Epsilon had won Nuke 16-13 where team123 didn't have the best of halves on their starting side, the CT side. Finally, the decider, Cobblestone was played and the map was won 16-13 again in Epsilon's favour - ruling the Swedish side the victors with them moving forward and resulting in FeTiSh's and rezex's team going back to the drawing board.
