+s1mple but dont remove anyone. Just have 6 guys in 1 team KAPPA
replace rain with cromen and karrigan with bntet if he improves his English, mainly replacing the lacking fraggers with superior ones, because i see fazes strength as firepower and they have kinda lost it.
karrigan to msl
olof to jw
but glaive shouldn't do this obviously.
honestly guardian is good.
think rain is a problem sometimes, feel like he sometimes has a hard time actually playing with his team.
NiKo is still great and has gotten some humility lately i feel like.
removing karrigan might be for the better like in astralis, but there is not really any good replacements right now. karrigan aswell doesnt embrace the role as a supportive igl, he wants to be a star and an igl and it doesnt really work.
olofmeister still does pretty well but a little dissapointing considering he used to be the best, think olofmeister might need to take a step back and play more supportive, either him or rain does anyways.
-karrigan +glaive -olof +s1mple
Guardian, niko, coldzera, device, magisk
They don't need to fix anything. Only problem was olof going away for months. They just needed more time to work with him after his break. They could have won eleague and DH but decided to save strats for major. Faze Londer Major 2018 Champions soon.
-olof + BigTymer
-karrigan + ACHES
-rain + Killa
I think they need a proper IGL who can utilize their great Firepower.
So I'd say: -Karrigan +Blad3
Because Blad3 is a really smart IGL, he's have not a good fragger but he doesnt need to be. Faze's roster already has 4 great fraggers.
i think Xizt might be a good fit as an IGL , he was stand-in but on olofmeister's role , so i want to see him on FaZe as IGL, but how i said first we need to see how they will act in the MAJOR , if bad then reshuffles should happen if every is good ( like winning a MAJOR) then no changes should happen
+simple - CARRYGUNN
FuCK A iGl
All FaZe need is AiM
Imo they dont need fix.
The bad thing is that olof was missing for too long... if he was with the team we would know what to change. But now its like they havent played that much together so far.
But if something, then i think rain is not good as he used to be, and add some great rifler.
There is only 2 things you can do.
1) Leave it be because it's not a bad team and everyone should stop crying ''FAZE FIX''...
When they were in-form they've had the most dominant tournament in the history of CSGO (ESL New York) and they've had multiple tournament wins and numerous tournament top 2 and top 4 wins. ffs they've been with stand-ins for 5 months so that doesn't really give the team much continuity and experience with eachother to work with.
2) Change the fast-loost style karrigan runs and build in a more tactical approach like Astralis is doing. This also means that you'll probably have to loose karrigan or let him change his IGL-ing. I'd also get rid of Rain, not because he's a bad player but you'll need someone to do the dirty work (personally i'd like to see Krimz on the line-up but he might not be the best fit for a good supporting player)... Meanwhile Guardian, Olof and Niko are just unreplaceable players with an incredible amount of talent and versitility.
+ Apex / nbk - rain/karrigan ez top 1
team fixes are for dumb little cunts, just let them play
In a perfect world?
They are playing strats where they are relying really hard on the fragging Power of the team, and too much on rains entry for that to work because he is to inconsistent. So my fix would be replacing guardian, who also got a lot more inconsistent and adding another entry to support Rain.
Then let Niko take over the awp if necessary or let karrigan play it if needed.
-a player out of form
+a superstar player
G2 will kick SmithZz shox benched with hem (cuz they friends) FaZe buy shox and SmithZz comes on coach. shox on IGL
ez IGL upgrade
no aim upgrade needed
wtf you stole it from me lol
it is definitely something wrong with karrigan. If TSM/Astralis were known as a quarter/semi finals team with karrigan and without him they are #1 in the world it has to be something with him
-Guardian + pasha
-NiKo + snax
-rain + taz
-robban +zonic or zews
First step is getting rid of Robban, he is useless
If this doesn’t work then karrigan
Well, if coldzera leaves mibr after the major; and s1mple doesn't achieve anything with navi + leaves the team, my fix could be actually possible.
S1mple (instead of olof/rain)
Karrigan (idk if there's any better igls for faze since gla1ve won't leave astralis for sure)
Coldzera (instead of olof/rain)
It's pretty much my dream team, would be insane to see this.
By the way, olof would be a good add to fnatic right now, he could make fnatic great again
I think most that they should work is getting confidence in themselfs, cause most games they're loosing cause NiKo is off, cause he doesn't has confidence, if he would get confidence in himself he could become even mad fragger than s1mple,
cause s1mple is fragging that much cause he's confident about his skill and he knows that he can run over people
EDIT: and maybe change RobbaN exactly for someone that will cheer up team, so they will be confident about themselfs
put someone whos not as good like crowman so you can just throw him around and it wont take much of a hit, that player can do the bitch roles that they dont currently have
-NiKo +s1mple for consistency fragging wise
-olofmeister +coldzera The ONLY change that could possibly work in terms of swapping support in my opinion. Even when he plays support coldzera is a monster of a player and it is rare to see him off of his game. I don't know how this would affect the team mentally though as I think olof plays an important role in the current mentality.
Only 2 reasonable changes that I see might be possible, of course if we have all players avalible on the table for removal and addition I'd have to say
gla1ve (Over Karriagan)
s1mple (Over NiKo)
Coldzera (Over Rain)
But we know this lineup won't happen as I don't think rain is going anywhere soon because of his ties with FaZe in general and gla1ve isn't leaving the danes in Astralis any time soon.
If we can’t get him I don’t think there is a better option.
So the main problem of this lineup is probaly Rain/Karrigan, besides the fragging, that is not a problem in a team that have Niko, Olofmeister and GuardiaN, I would pick 1 more hybrid player to the place of Rain, as ChrisJ, that could help Karringan qith calls issues, pretty much what Tarik added to MiBR. As almost all IGL’s are in a solid team, i would make something like this:
+ChrisJ(Takes the IGL role, maybe turn a double AWP setup with GuardiaN, such as kNg and Hen1) or Golden, i known he is a bot, but he did very well in Fnatic, and the add below could cover his bad frag.
+EspiranTo/Xantares/ISSAA/KrimZif the problem is firepower(that i think it’s not)
+Apex to a more supportive role, he can anchor a site very well even with not that impressive frag, he might agree organization to the mess that Karrigan made.
