Parte de su bio:
No one has ever come close to the earnings, titles and media coverage of Fatal1ty. His record of success speaks for itself. He presently reigns as the holder of 12 major championships, winning titles in 5 different games, a feat never before accomplished. The games in which he holds winning titles are Doom 3, Alien vs. Predator 2, Unreal Tournament 2003, Quake III and Painkiller.
Wendel started professional gaming in 1999 by entering the Cyberathlete Professional League (CPL) tournament in Dallas where he won $4,000 and a third place finish before flying to Sweden to compete in a tournament against the top 12 players in the world. He took first place by winning 18 straight games and losing none, emerging as the top ranked Quake III player in the world. Two months later he maintained his top ranking in Dallas by winning the CPL again and a $40,000 grand prize.
Since then Fatal1ty has traveled the globe to compete against the best in the world, winning prizes and acclaim, including the 2005 CPL World Tour Championship in New York City for a $150,000 first place triumph. From the time Fatal1ty began to realize success he has preached a doctrine of “giving back to gaming” and has convinced his business partners to do the same as part of their overall goal to position gaming in a positive light. As part of this quest he has organized events that have given away a great deal of money and prizes, including an exhibition held at The Great Wall of China for a prize of $125,000 to selected challengers who could beat him. The relationship that has been built between him and his business partners, combined with the sales of his own branded products, provides the capital and human resources needed to pull off attention getting promotions.
In December 2006, Johnathan joined forces with Championship Gaming Series (CGS) as exclusive on-air analyst, global spokesperson and gaming ambassador to help establish competitive video gaming as a 21st century sport. The exposure given to CGS through live, world wide coverage on DirecTV and sister companies SkyTV and Star to 120 million homes, furthered his goal of achieving global status for competitive gaming.
In August 2007, Johnathan was awarded the first ever Lifetime Achievement Award in the four year history of the eSports-Award for “showing exceptional sportsmanship, taking part in shaping eSports into what it is today and for being the prime representative of this young sport. He has become the figurehead for eSports worldwide”.
In March of 2009, at the giant CeBIT electronics show in Hannover, Germany, Fatal1ty and crew launched Fatal1ty Tech Talks. The Tech Talks were presented by Intel and featured detailed information about today's latest technology and the newest Fatal1ty Gaming Gear. Creative's new Vado HD camcorder easily captured the live action and excitement of the Tech Talks as thousands of gamers and fans joined Fatal1ty and host at Intel's massive gaming hall and at OCZ's new tradeshow booth. Fatal1ty did not disappoint! -- he lived up to what the press is saying; "Fatal1ty has emerged as a fresh voice for a new digital world".
In April 2009 Johnathan ‘Fatal1ty’ Wendel set a Guinness World Record for most frags in an hour. This unbelievable feat was accomplished at the CEC Copenhagen Conference where Fatal1ty scored 672 frags in 60 minutes while competing against 5 rotating competitors.
