Obligatory FaZe Thread

Obviously Karrigan got benched and everybody's talking about who the new FaZe 5th will be. Here's my take on the potential options and who I think they should take. OPTION 1: Tarik (Best option IMO) +Can play support +Can IGL if NiKo isn't working out as IGL +Is potentially transfer listed by MIBR (Not 100% confirmed yet) -Could be expensive (Although FaZe have a lot of money) OPTION 2: ScreaM +Strong rifler +Free agent -Can't IGL -Bad support player -Not played T1 CS for a while OPTION 3: Snax (Worst option IMO) -Been really poor this year -Can't play support -Could cost more than he's worth OPTION 4: Cromen +Free agent +Can play support (To a degree) +Played well with FaZe before -Not been on a consistent team for a long time OPTION 5: AdreN +Free agent +Can play support quite well -May have poor English skills (Idk) -Inconsistent as of late Tell me if I'm missing any obvious names TL;DR - FaZe should get Tarik
2018-12-16 21:22
Bump
2018-12-16 21:22
Bondik: +Free agent +Very good at clutching +Can play support -Very very toxic
2018-12-16 21:24
didnt he say he's looking for a team where he can play more of a carry role?
2018-12-16 23:40
Yeah he did, but soon he’ll see that he’s not good enough for that Also if FaZe asked him to join do you really think he’d say no?
2018-12-16 23:41
i agree on both things^^
2018-12-16 23:42
hahahahahahahhahahahahahhahahha
2018-12-17 01:23

well in TyLoo it was pretty much the case
2018-12-17 10:13
true, but i wouldn't say the same about bondik or tyloo now
2018-12-17 20:35
seized to IGL over niko is good i think and he have not good but ok english
2018-12-17 15:34
Seized to FaZe? As IGL?? Thats almost as bad as signing Snax
2018-12-17 15:35
you said Ex6TenZ which is like signing a brainless karrigan
2018-12-17 16:25
Ex6TenZ is better than Seized Also I only put Ex6 because a lot of people I’ve seen have suggested it
2018-12-17 16:31
Are you actually judging a player’s leadership quality on their frags? We’re done here
2018-12-17 17:16
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Can't stop laughing, lmao!
2018-12-17 17:35
At me or at him? Ahahaha
2018-12-17 17:36
At him of course. You just gave the perfect reply xD. Based on his logic s1mple must be the best IGL in the world.
2018-12-17 17:41
Exactly ahahaha
2018-12-17 17:49
He's Russian, that's the explanation xD
2018-12-17 17:53
xD
2018-12-17 18:32
he in game leads and frags more than Ex6TenZ
2018-12-17 17:40
If all an IGL needed to do was frag then FaZe would have won the last major under NiKo
2018-12-17 17:41
i never said this lul where is ur brain u said Ex6TenZ was better than seized i showed u that seized have better stats than Ex6TenZ and seized in game leads aswell which is harder retarded shit
2018-12-17 17:42
You’ve got to be baiting, surely Ex6TenZ is a better IGL than seized whether you like it or not
2018-12-17 17:48
sure in 2015 when seized dident IGL
2018-12-17 17:49
And in 2018 when seized was kicked by Gambit for not being good enough (And still hasn’t been picked up by a team can I add)
2018-12-17 18:33
he was kicked for not being a good match with the team and dosia wanted to IGL

Ex6 is better than seized atm and a far more better choice for FaZe than seized. FaZe does not need another fragger, but someone who stays cool and reads the game well in which ex6 is better than seized. EDIT: Soo you bringing up their frags has no relevance for FaZe

Ex6TenZ: +Reasonable fragger for an IGL +Takes the IGL role from NiKo +Different style to Karrigan - could be good, could be bad though -Was kicked from G2 -G2 have a history of charging far too much for their benched players
2018-12-16 22:14
no
2018-12-16 23:41
I also don’t think its a great idea but its an option
2018-12-16 23:42
more like WILL BE BAD except guardian, all of these players were in teams who utilized a fluid and open style to the game, which is quite opposite to what ex6 creates in his teams.
2018-12-17 01:25
It could go eitherway, but the change will likely be a bad one for FaZe
2018-12-17 09:28
-he doesn't have excellent English
2018-12-17 03:16

2018-12-18 16:49
He's a decent IGL, but not good enough for a team trying to be Top 1/2
2018-12-18 17:01
ZywOo: +Amazing player +Young, lots of potential +Will be the best in the world one day -Just joined an org, high buyout -Moving at this stage of his career may be bad for him -Isn’t what FaZe need right now (Another awper/flashy aimer)
2018-12-17 10:33
It can be very expensive and needs adaptation, but you can win many rounds that will make a difference. It is a great AWP but, if you saw it play, you will see that it has a crazy target with a rifle. I would not doubt it.
2018-12-17 16:31

2018-12-17 12:40
S1mple isnt gonna play awp if guardian in team. He will play star/2nd awp role
2018-12-17 16:25

If s1mple joins FaZe he would be the best awper and rifler on there, but good for FaZe since s1mple has said multiple times that he doesn’t like to mainly awp
2018-12-17 16:37
I remember his Reddit QnA He’d be a good replacement for Rain rather than Karrigan IMO - they need someone with less of a star mindset to fill his roles
2018-12-17 16:49
If rain leaves Niko would leave aswell

I can see a lot of good things coming from Faze if they get Xantares
2018-12-17 15:19
Tarik isn't good enough.
2018-12-16 21:23
take it from someone who really liked him back on c9
2018-12-16 21:23
Tarik plays better when he's igl'ing for some reason He's much better than Karrigan anyway and there's not many other options tbh
2018-12-16 21:25
You mean he played better on c9
2018-12-16 21:56
I do
2018-12-16 21:56
'for some reason' It's because some have a certain style of igl-ing where they manage their players such that they put themselves in the most optimal of positions/situations
2018-12-17 17:04
That’ll be it
2018-12-17 17:05
which is why I really disagree with all the +tarik comments seeing as how such a style would not suit FaZe at all
2018-12-17 17:06
I think that his loose puggy style would be good for FaZe as they debatably have the best aimers in the world at their disposal who could really shine from this
2018-12-18 13:42
+1 I spat my drink when he said tarik LMAO
2018-12-17 01:14
You’ve just got to accept that Tarik is the best option until they replace rain with someone like Krimz after the major
2018-12-17 09:29
Krimz will stay in swedish cs forever lul, i dont see him leaving any time soon
2018-12-17 17:00

Perhaps, but he's not leaving a top5 team just to play with a certain person.

sure, but who is out there (that is available) that is better? FalleN? Probably not available Gla1ve? Probably not available I'm assuming here ofc that NiKo is not going to igl long term and that faze are looking for an igl. It just doesn't been reasonable to me that he will sacrifice such amazing talent to be igl

Golden seems decent with this C9 roster and looks like he has a talent for controlling high firepower rosters, the health issues are problematic though and maybe he wants to stick it out with C9
2018-12-17 15:32
Well theres a chance that Golden may be replaced by Karrigan as he’s ill atm, so FaZe could potentially try and pick him up

I honestly see C9 sticking it out with golden unless he is confirmed SERIOUSLY ill, other wise I think they'll wait it out and see what they can do with him once he's well again
2018-12-23 04:33

2018-12-16 21:24
Yeah true - I feel that they'd really suit eachother tbh
2018-12-16 21:25

2018-12-18 16:52
He's better as a rifler agreed, but he's still very very capable with an AWP. After thinking a bit more, he'd be a better replacement for Rain than for Guardian. Still not who I think should replace Karrgian though
2018-12-18 17:00
I think s1mple would be willing to leave navi for faze but I dont think faze is willing to pay for him shitload. Could be very wrong tho

I could just see olof pushing for a former teammate, and he was closest to KRiMZ and dennis, and the former can't leave Fnatic because of their major spot (and also, Fnatic look to be on an upwards turn as of late).
2018-12-16 23:48
tbh if this happened, I would be REALLY surprised but then kinda "ah" at the same time
2018-12-17 03:20
Tarik wouldn't be a bad addition to Faze but i think there may be a better option, also i think there may be another surprise mover out of faze.
2018-12-16 23:48
I can honestly see Rain also leaving to join a team with Karrigan - Tarik would be a great replacement for either imo
2018-12-16 23:48

I know about it. :D There was a time he was really considering to end it with CS and start to play DOTA professionally. But he already said in past, it's too late for him to even try it and that he will stick to CS. So I just don't understand from where you get the information about him trying it nowadays :D
2018-12-17 21:34
Just taking a wild guess, he hasn't looked happy at all this year. although it would be bad for CS if he did quit. Maybe a revival of the Faze roster will help them all find the form again

From his streams, I can say he is okay. Of course, the situation within the team hit his form and him personally, but when they will find stable fifth for their team and whole team start working and practising properly he is for sure ready and motivated to get FaZe on top. And Major is coming, he will be motivated even more. :D

Yes Way better
2018-12-17 15:01
I disagree
2018-12-17 15:05
At least as good and he is free agent
2018-12-17 15:02
Tarik brings more than just raw aim - FaZe have plenty of players who can aim amazingly well and don’t need another player like that
2018-12-17 15:05
I don't really see what he brings, his IGL-ing surely is no better than NiKos
2018-12-17 15:33
I mean, he won a major as the IGL so it can’t be that bad
2018-12-17 17:06
That major was complete clown fiesta, the only good team there (FaZe) decided to underperform as hell and gift C9 the major through a megachoke. C9 never did anything relevant after that which proves that the major was irrelevant
2018-12-17 19:55
You cannot possibly tell me that a major is an irrelevant achievement and expect me to consider your opinion valid
2018-12-17 21:50
I'm saying that that major was of extremely low quality, and that C9 didn't win it because they played good, but because FaZe played way below their standards
2018-12-18 00:26
But they got to the final by being the better team on most of their maps - even that is a feat in its own right. Even if C9 didn't win that major I'd be saying that Tarik was a great IGL as he helped to get them to the final leading the way as their best player as well as their igl
2018-12-18 00:54
I think xizt would be a good option for them tbh
2018-12-17 00:19
Fnatic need the major spot, so he’ll stay
2018-12-17 01:15
True didnt think of that
2018-12-17 13:18
xizt is a bot both at igl and fragging. massive downgrade from karrigan
2018-12-17 16:38
He's actually a decent fragger, especially compared to Karrigan

Tarik can't support and won't be expensive because he's been trash, scream sucks, snax is awful, cromen is a good pickup as a bandaid but not longterm, is adren's english good enough?
2018-12-17 00:19
Tarik can support to a higher standard than karrigan, ScreaM isn’t good enough for FaZe agreed, snax sucks, cromen isn’t a good enough full time player for FaZe agreed, and idk about AdreN

Tarik can only igl for so long, if he's going to igl i like it because he's more of a puggy type igl and those players love that style

Can’t help FaZe - not good enough for a team wanting to be the best
2018-12-17 09:21
When you have a team of well decorated and seasoned pros, it is extremely hard to find the right person who will fit in. If they get someone with little achievements under the belt, as soon as things go bad, you can be sure where the blame is going to go. Tarik was getting a lot of criticism at MIBR, so I don't see Niko wanting to be IGL'd by him. Niko will probably feel that he can do a better job than Tarik and might undermine his calls. I guess we'll have to wait and see the route they take.
2018-12-17 01:25
I agree with that tbh - they could become like NiP or Gambit where they keep changing their 5th member whenever they dip in form, which would be terrible
2018-12-17 09:22
+1. Tbh, i can't see a lineup with olof, guardian and niko beating a team with the teamwork of astralis. MiBR and FaZe should take the lesson off their earlier mistakes and stop thinking that change the bottom stats player is the answer that they need. Plus, they should put the "we dont have enough preparation" "we lost motivation" aside and just bring the hardwork if they wanna get somewhere.

He just needs to lead again and he’ll go back to old form Idk if he deserves a chance to lead FaZe though, although there is an argument for it
2018-12-17 17:00
Just add tarik and that’s it perfect team

Tru didn't even think about the fact that they need the core 3. Maybe faze doesn't grab a player until after major then.
2018-12-17 09:39
Well they can’t play the major with 4 players xD My prediction is they get Tarik and they get Krimz to replace Rain after the major
2018-12-17 09:40
#124
 | 
United States Merk0 
They need the core of xizt jw and krimz to retain what ever spot they have. Honestly I think they might play with a standin for the major and grab someone after. Buyouts will be extremely high with the major right around the corner and their will be more players available. Faze has the money but supposedly want to stop spending insane amounts of money on the csgo team. Also faze has very little respect for NA doubt they will snag tarik. Plus Tarik is in talks with c9 and Nrg rn
2018-12-17 09:44
#125

He will be replacing fugly on nrg or golden and flusha will be kicked for him and refrezh unless flusha comes to his senses and doesn't want to keep golden

They are already looking to replace golden. If he goes flusha may go as well. Karrigan is most likely getting a gig with optic or a new org with a mix team.
2018-12-17 09:51
It’d be a huge shame if Golden had to go
2018-12-17 09:52
#136
 | 
United States Merk0 
Eh probably shouldn't of been on the team in the first place but yea it's sad to see someone go because of sickness. Honestly they played at the same level with golden as they did with valens. The move will happen sooner or later wether it's now or because of poor form later on. This last tournament was the first time I saw c9 look dangerous. They will be better without him
2018-12-17 09:56
Refrezh should absolutely stay imo +1
2018-12-17 10:27
It could go eitherway, but I doubt an org like FaZe would risk having a standin for a major
2018-12-17 09:46
Cromen best option imo, tarik will surely join a NA team
2018-12-17 09:33
Cromen is decent short term but not enough to help them be top 1
2018-12-17 09:35
when he replaced olof he was better than olof, the only time when he was in a t1 team he was better than many t1 player maybe i overrated cromen a little bit but i loved when he stand-in in Faze
2018-12-17 09:41
He was great when he was standing in because he was trying to earn a spot - I doubt he’d be just as good if he joined
2018-12-17 09:41
i think we must give him a chance

Zeus says s1mple has a ton of offers so well just have to see. Cant see him staying in that Navi for too much longer, next major max unless they win it. But yeah these seem like the only paths to challenging Astralis/Liquid
2018-12-17 10:30
Especially with Zeus retiring - Simple will leave and will almost certainly join FaZe, but the question is whether its before the major or after
2018-12-17 10:31
#153
 | 
United States Jammin800k 
I think after, teams dont like making changes before majors (whether it would improve them or not) unless s1mple really wants out. Also dont know their contract situation so faze might just have to wait or pay a ridiculous buyout

2018-12-17 15:30
Dennis maybe, Krimz needs to stay for the major spot, and S1mple will likely stay in NaVi until after the major
2018-12-17 15:27
bondik disco doplan (benched in RR and could actually be an ok pick up, who knows) Rest of 2019 (HS, Innocent, RUBINO, Ayken) refrezh ex6tenz (bad pickup just an idea) Byali (MIKSTURA isnt an org so free agent Seized (if youre retarded) Frozen (GUNRUNNERS is poor org, wont ask much and could be interesting) zehN (Save him from HAVU ffs) Pronax (only good since hes a free agent)
2018-12-17 15:35
Maybe No (RR are a bad team and he’s not a great player) In order - Maybe, No, No, No Maybe (Although he’s a risk - I don’t think he’s ready) Maybe (Risky, may have an incompatiable style) No No No (Not ready) Idk (I don’t know Finnish CS tbh) No (Unless he’s the coach)
2018-12-17 15:37
it was more based on who's available Most were just ideas and the only decent pickups would be Bondik Refrezh zehN and people will give me shit but doplan. He is a fairly underrated player imo. Not the caliber FaZe would want but I could see him picking up the IGL role and giving FaZe a potential triple AWP with him, GuardiaN and NiKo. Bondik is probably the best pickup since he's exactly what FaZe need but he doesn't wanna play the roles they need. FaZe lacks an overall clutch player outside of Olof and NiKo and Bondik is a clutch god and an amazing support but doesn't want that role. Refrezh was a really good lurker for Tricked and while his role changed a bit for Fragsters he still played similar to how he did with Tricked. I think that his style might fit FaZe with their aim based teamplay. zehN was apart of the reason PENTA made top 16 at Krakow and is a very good player. He is 27 so his age kinda takes away from what people think he can do but he was 26 when the Krakow run happened and has always been a really good player. He's easily top 5 in Finland in terms of skill maybe even top 3.
2018-12-17 16:14
If FaZe wanted a triple awp they’d use Olof Agreed, although with Tarik transfer listed he’s kind of likely to join and I’d consider him to be better than Bondik Refrezh played well with C9, but I think its too risky right now I don’t think he’s good enough from FaZe from what I’ve heard/seen I like what you’re saying though, so +1 for using your brain

MSL isn’t available though

Neo +can igl + can suport + can teach +has experiance -shit in 2018 but maybe it was a team
2018-12-17 16:37
Bad igl, but I see the other points Maybe a coaching role for a smaller team would be suited to NEO but not FaZe
2018-12-17 16:39
Thats the point. Faze is one of the most redicilos teams. With so high skilled players you need only deacent strategies to win. I think in igl role niko is not so good than neo looking at that what hes skill is. Even if niko wants to be igl they can try and get neo back like in old days when he could frag (dont think its gonna hapen) Then theres question dose he want to join the team whats all about winning and beaing nr1 when hes at end or so at csgo pro carrier (now looks like that) maybe he wants to chill more than grind it agin. Edit: +knows alot about players and teams
2018-12-17 16:59
NEO isn’t even good enough for VP anymore, he isn’t the answer for a team trying to become the best in the world

I would go for cromen. Tarik might have IGLed C9 to win a major, but I highly doubt that it was because of him calling. He is imo the most overrated player in NA. Cromen (as you said) played with FaZe before and is not as big of a start like the rest of the team. They need someone like that to bring freshness into the team. Only problem: who will IGL?
2018-12-18 17:11
NiKo will IGL if not Tarik - Cromen wouldn’t be anywhere near as good as he was durimg his standin period
2018-12-23 04:02
How to ruin a team...
2018-12-18 17:19
AdreN/Tarik would both be great additions - I’d love to see them both come in and for Rain to leave and make a Norsk team with Jkaem, Cromen, Rubino, and Radifaction
2018-12-23 04:04
faze allready got adren so lets see.. he WAS a good player but now hes old like guardian
2018-12-23 04:45
One of my favourite players - glad to see him get a huge opportunity like this, I hope he proves himself

I love how everyone forgets that Guardian is the only reason Faze is still winning some tourneys OMEGALUL. Guardian is the alpha and omega of Faze 2018
2018-12-28 15:11
Guardian is a big game player tbf
2018-12-28 18:04
he is definitely one of the keys faze is still doing something . he has to retire, but no way he is going out of faze before major

What I don't understand is: Why would you bench karrigan if you don't have a proper replacement ready? I still believe Faze just needs a mental coach to get the confidence back on karrigans calling. Niko shouldn't IGL imo
2018-12-28 15:16
Agreed Although NiKo IGLing could work, might not though. Definitely worth trying
2018-12-28 18:02
As long as nikos fragging is still on point he can be the IGL but I still think it's a waste of firepower Furthermore I consider Niko as a player who would make more individual mistakes if his calling doesn't work because he used to topfrag. No idea if I explained it properly but I hope you know what I mean
2018-12-28 18:14
I see what you’re saying, but the firepower on FaZe should be enough to make up for the drop in NiKo’s firepower that him leading could potentially lead to It all comes down to whether or not he’s actually a good igl or not tbf
2018-12-28 18:39
But that's the thing. Every pro player who plays 8 hours a day has decent aim and stuff but Niko somehow manages to outclass them all. With him IGLing I think his personal form will drop to "normal" pro Level. Of course if his IGLing is good enough and the strats are working they don't need monster Niko but if the strats don't work they need someone who can make plays without proper strats The next months will show if he's capable of doing both at the same time. I just want a proper IGL in Faze so Niko can go crazy on the server without having to worry about the strats

BEST OPTIONS : LEKR0, S1MPLE
2018-12-28 16:01
Never thought of Lekr0 tbh; S1mple won’t join and FaZe don’t really need more firepower in the place of Karrigan

Delete. Peanut brain no.1 option, lul. 1. Valde 2. Krimz 3. Styko
2018-12-28 20:13
I’ve never considered Valde to be an option tbh Krimz won’t join because of the major spot Styko wouldn’t want to leave Mouz and they wouldn’t want to let him go (At least for a while) Tarik would be a good option, and he was the best option at the time of writing

Valde is one of the worlds best support players, why is he not an option in your eyes? If Krimz actually wants to win something again he needs to leave that bot Swedish lineup.
2018-12-30 02:17
Never been an option because he never crossed my mind - I know very little about him as a player tbh

I think Chrisj would also be a good option, but I dont see mousesports giving him away (especially to faze)
2018-12-30 03:30
I agree completely - thats the only reason I didn’t write him in
2018-12-30 15:02
Adren has decent english. I watched his twitch streams a while back and when he talked english it was clear and good
2018-12-31 22:21
Apparently he's been practicing for them too recently, so its looking like he's the man
