Lincoln ‘fnx’ Lau is a 27 year old Brazilian cyber athlete who plays for 100 Thieves. He takes on the responsibility of an entry fragger or lurker, training and competing in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
His brother encouraged him to take up sports like boxing, Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai, to feel good and at peace with himself. Lincoln owns a clothing line Nao Tem Como (NTC) which means there is no way, which gave him the drive to continue his professional gaming career.
Where it all began:
Lau followed his gaming profession in 2000, competing in Counter-Strike 1.6 with his very first team LeTs. Fnx has a strong background in CS Source between 2008 until 2011. Lincoln took up CS:GO in 2013 with the squad, playArt. With over a decade of Counter-Strike experience, fnx is a strong, motivated player to help bring his pro gaming team to new heights and will not give up on esports any time soon.
100 Thieves is an American gaming association that was launched in December 2017 by the NBA team, Cleveland Cavaliers and former Call of Duty player, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag.
The esports team, 100 Thieves signed in the former Immortals players, HEN1, LUCAS1, fnx, kNg and bit from Team One. Together as a CSGO squad they will take their gameplays to new heights, improving on their mistakes.
At the start of 2017, fnx began competing for Immortals at the Starladder i-League StarSeries Season 3, the NA qualifying stage of IEM as well as the premier Intel Extreme Masters XI – World Championship.
The highest accomplishment for fnx was while playing for top CSGO team, SK Gaming at the ESL One Cologne 2016. The top squad beat Team Liquid in the finals Counter Strike tournament with the amazing score of 2-0 to win a staggering prize of $500K.
One of Lincoln’s achievements was while competing for Luminosity Gaming, where he attended the MLG Major Championship: Colombus. Fnx and his team took the title beating the esports favourites, NaVi with the record 2:0, claiming their prize of $500K.
