FaZe AdreN
Germany Lvl_35_HLTV_baiter 
Why do people keep saying "it's a bad move" ? We saw what he can do when motivated and FaZe is sure a team that can motivate him cuz they are fighting for that no1 spot , people just like to complain for no reason , better than ex6tenz or MSL or every other roster move that HLTV actually talked about , or were you seriously expecting s1mple ?

I think s1mple and kazakh players (mou,AdreN) hating each other.
2018-12-31 19:20

ok so then -s1mple and +AdreN, s1mple goes to faze
2019-01-02 19:26
navi top 49720308957239872 then
2019-01-02 19:33
not really, if you watch s1mple streams they play with Adren a lot and there is no hate at all. I think problem is between zeus and adren after that situation with gambit
2019-01-04 09:21
What situation gambit had problem with kane its was yhe reason why Zeus left
2019-01-04 09:25
yeah and that was Dosia and Adren who hate Kane. Zeus said he will leave if Kane leaves and they didn`t care about zeus leaving. They felt like win in major was all on them and Zeus with Kane did zero effort. Do you think zeus will be happy to see one of them in his team? )
2019-01-04 09:29
If they start win events like astralis i think every one will happy but it propably dont happend
2019-01-04 09:45
i don`t think it`s possible to achieve something great without good relationship inside the team
2019-01-04 09:47
>good relationship inside the team >s1mple Pick one Kappa

you jerk get lost its all the same ... relative link stupid slovakian beggar

i know for you its all same bcos its hard for gypsy like you to know difference between brother and are all the same
2018-12-31 15:15
get lost worthless powerless scum lol
2018-12-31 17:17
Taking HunTer would probably have a huge backlash cuz everyone would call out NiKo thinking he picked him cuz he is his cousin... AdreN is an OK player , we never know how it will work , cromen would have been a better choice imo but we will have to see...
2018-12-31 14:42
many people have many opinions!!!!

Hunter is truly tier 1 potential though, he has been really rekting the lower scene with Vitality, ldlc, red reserve etc. Been better on Valiance than both Nexa and Espiranto so far
2018-12-31 15:03
I think he needs to prove himself more on LANs before a team like FaZe , mous or even liquid myb consider him , hes been online most of his carrier...
2018-12-31 15:11
rekting fr♿nch sc♿n♿ is not an achievement
2019-01-02 19:37
Hes also 5 years older than espiranto, hes even older than NiKo..
2019-01-02 21:45
hunter is trash. everyone been lookin for ages at him thinkin hes gonna be like niko. well hes older, he hasnt shown much. hes good, but not good to be put into a great team.
2019-01-03 06:48
Those who say bad move are retard. Time will say if its gonna work out or not. But overall AdreN is good pick
2018-12-31 14:40
People said the same thing when xizt and cromen were stand-ins and they won tournaments with both of them , sometimes the least obvious choise works the best...
2018-12-31 14:46
Yep. Exactly.
2018-12-31 14:48

2018-12-31 16:37
Spain JasonRacism 
Because people expect FaZe to buyout any player they desire instead of picking up the best free agent atm
2018-12-31 14:41
Who ? Glaive wouldn't leave , s1mple said on stream he wouldn't join FaZe , cold wouldn't leave with mibr making big changes now , and I remember NiKo saying that FaZe wouldn't throw big money unless it was necesary...
2018-12-31 14:48

Krimz Shox Gob b Jks SuNny Ange1 ZywOo Valde TabseN ISSAA I'd remove Rain also for some of those players
2018-12-31 14:57
Ehhh idk , decent players but AdreN can kick ass if he finds his motivation to win like he did in krakow...
2018-12-31 14:59
AdreN could easily fit into that list imo. Only Krimz would be a significantly better choice
2019-01-02 21:47
Spain JasonRacism 
I’d argue Gob b, Shox, Jks, Ange1, Valde and SuNny could all be potential better choices
2019-01-03 03:01
I kinda agree with you, thats why I said Krimz would be the only <significantly> better choice. - Valde and sunny would be great pick ups aswell. - Gob wouldnt fit at all, his playstyle doenst fit FaZe and also I think he would struggle alot to call everything in English (hes basically micro managing every player lol). - I dont know about shox, he is pretty average right now but we all know how good he can be - jks is a good player but is he really that much better than AdreN? I dont think so, he has less experience and hasnt done anything special so far to be honest (AdreN is still Major MVP) - Ange1 would be a good pickup too, I agree
2019-01-03 11:55
Russia baryga007 
Why the hell do you even consider Glaive? Like seriously lol, there's literally 0% chance that he will leave Astralist for Faze. Same goes to cold (they are building BR-team-only once again and he won't leave his home)
2018-12-31 14:58
That's exactly what I said , you don't have to repeat my words , the guy said FaZe can throw huge money on who ever they want so glaive , cold and s1mple are obv first choices when you here a team has shit ton of money...
2018-12-31 15:01
Isnt that exactly what he said? lol
2019-01-02 21:48
Russia baryga007 
Nope. He mentioned glaive. There is no reason to even get him in this discussion, he's just saying stuff that is never gonna happen. I've seen quite a few people do it (talk about glaive being or not being an option) and decided to write down my opinion.
2019-01-03 04:50
So were not allowed to even mention his name? ok then lol
2019-01-03 12:02
it doesn't hurt faze to try him, hope it works well
2018-12-31 14:47
We will see

actually a sick move, surely hope it works out
2018-12-31 14:50
Adren is underrated as fuck... Navi should of moved for him and Hobbit as soon as they became available
2018-12-31 14:50
2018-12-31 14:52
+1 Navi were really stupid regarding this. They should have done - Zeus - Edward +AdreN +Hobbit... Chance gone
2018-12-31 18:12
Zeus is a best cis igl, no one can replace him for now...
2019-01-04 10:18
sunny much better than adren
2018-12-31 14:56
I wouldn't say , AdreN is a beast when he has his motivation...
2018-12-31 15:03
sunny and ropz are the only reason why mouz is still in top 5, where is adren?
2018-12-31 15:53
shox | 
Portugal NAOverEU 
?? ChrisJ has adapted into a great leader and without him no wayy mouz is able to reply to top tier teams (like close matches with Astralis or FaZe w/ Karrigan *in prime*). Oskar also has amazing clutches that win games or makes them close for mouz. sunny is nutty and probably their most consistent along with ropz but not the only reason. also without styko we saw mouz struggle he is a key player like taco was in sk. cmon brother
2019-01-03 04:57
Oskar misses easy shots and chrisj plays with 0-0-7 stats too often
2019-01-03 11:45

yea lets drop their awp player who at times has been top 10 and drop their igl and pick up d0cc karrigan and tarik!!!
2019-01-03 23:06
styko is decent , no need to replace, but if there was great awper and igl mouz would be very ez top2 team

i think s1mple will join them in 2019 anyway.

Myb , once zeus retires na'vi will probably fall apart since edward will most likely follow with retirement soon after...
2018-12-31 15:33
So you think Guardian would leave the team?

no s1mple will be back to rifling s1mple is shit with awp
2018-12-31 18:17
Hes ok with awp , but rifle is his home soil honestly...
2018-12-31 18:18
That’s not what I mean. Guardian said last month that “S1mple will not join Faze and I’ll make sure of it”. That and how Guardian was trash talking simple when he was in NaVi and how he left NaVi assures that both players are not playing together again.
2019-01-02 19:25
good sign
2018-12-31 15:34
Not the best but deffinitely not as bad as people tell it to be...
2018-12-31 15:35
im skeptical about adren...his performance this year is rly bad and to be honest even in his prime he was inconsistent AF. on top of that he is entry so even role wise its rly weird decision because they didnt want to pick cromen bcs of it it rly looks like faze just dont want to spend any money so they took probably the best possible free agent player
2018-12-31 15:38
It can work you never know...
2018-12-31 15:46
it can but based on facts i highly doubt about that
2018-12-31 15:48
Belgium HLTVnewfag 
“We saw what he can do when motivated” He played well for 2 weeks in his entire career He was cosistently bad in 2018 And sure chockers/tilters like rain, niko and guardian can motivate someone omegalul Faze will never be as good without karrigan as they were with him Time to disband
2018-12-31 15:44
Ur flair doesn't check out... Show some fucking hope...
2018-12-31 15:46
Belgium HLTVnewfag 
i would love to see them prove me wrong but I dont think its going to happen without karrigan
2018-12-31 15:54
Karrigans IGLing obviously didn't work anymore and as a player he was lacking in every aspect , i don't think keeping karrigan would be a good choice...
2018-12-31 15:55
Belgium HLTVnewfag 
Yes it didnt work anymore thats true But karrigan is imo the best igl to make a team like this work, and if it doesnt work for him, maybe thats a sign to the org that they need to change their philosophy about the roster And why would it be a bad thing if the igl is lacking in firepower/skill (sure his calls werent the best all the time too)They had 4 of the best players with him Maybe in the current state they do need a smart and experienced igl with good fragging, atleast if you wanna be the best, but there is no contender for glaive i guess
2018-12-31 16:00
They went 0-2 with him on the major and bombed out of groups in new york after that , NiKo made them comeback the major , destroy astralis , liquid and na'vi which resulted in them winning the epicenter , NiKo can work as an IGL , they knew karrigan would be benched so there was no point in practicing , that's why they haven't achieved anything at the end of the year...

It's a great move. Adren is one of the most skilled and experienced players out there.

still not better than tarik

They got n0thing isn't it
2018-12-31 16:01

2018-12-31 18:00
Turkey mtdN 
Isn't it illogical not to attend the Major for tarik eventhough he will join
2018-12-31 18:17
Tarik would have joined if he could have , he was offered as far as I know...
2018-12-31 18:20
sure it is, i watched his stream he failed every nade possible he failed every f2f aim duel he blamed it on "omg guys i'm tilted" ur being pro player and ur getting titled, are u dumb? low mental player
2018-12-31 15:56
Have you seen guardian play right after he joined FaZe ? He would miss like every other shot and rn hes one of the best awpers again , top3 for sure , all he needs is motivation.

Dude every pro fails sometimes. Do you realize the amount of cs they play ? And of course he can get tilted in a fucking pug. On lan he delivers. And skillwise he's top 5 in the world. Much better than all these overrated shitplayers like device
2018-12-31 16:07
top5 world, ok. overrated player device his team is still top1
2018-12-31 16:34
Czech Republic Pee_Tea 
doesn't change the fact he is an overrated thrash.
2018-12-31 17:44
bro, adren doesn't even have 1.00 rating on LAN, he has 0.97, he's the one that you overrated. Good player nowdays? zywoo, that's a good player another good player? s1mple, that's a good player not adren, adren is just mediocre and has no place in a team like faze where it's supposed to be an all-star team, you have the best awp there, insane riflers, the player that was best player of the year is playing support in the team....and then you bring adren? you bring him for what? you need to bring a GAME CHANGER, not a mediocre scum, you get my point now? TL;DR : if faze is aiming for top1 world, they need a fucking gamechanger in team
2018-12-31 18:53

i don't dream about cs.
2018-12-31 18:56
'when motivated' he was good until he was pushed to igl. No matter how good he is if niko is the igl. They might win a few tournaments here and there, but they'll never be consistent

2018-12-31 16:49
Bad teammates , FaZe has a winning mentality that will wake him up and will shine 100%...
2018-12-31 17:58
bad teammates? Hobbit/mou/Dosia ? Lets just say he played bad last year
2018-12-31 18:00

2018-12-31 17:47
im honestly so excited if it is adren, im excited to see what he can bring to the team when has the right teammates with him too, sure hes not been great this year, but i feel that was more to do with his team rather than himself individually. Also, there is not really anyone else available who would be a better choice than adren. FazeUP
2018-12-31 17:47
He didn't have the team to show himself , with the winning mentality of FaZe he should shine like he did in the krakow days...
2018-12-31 17:57
+11111111111111 hobbit individually on gambit had dropped off a lot, but look at him on hellraisers, already doing good again dosia, mir are trash mou was alright

2018-12-31 17:47

2018-12-31 17:59
India ShauryaGargTL 
The thing is AdreN will not work cuz they don’t have a good IGL , They shouldn’t have removed karrigan , they should hv signed AdreN in place of rain
2018-12-31 17:59
NiKo proved himself as an IGL , karrigan just didn't work anymore , they almost bombed at the major and NiKo saved them , they tried karrigan as IGL at new york after that and they bombed out in groups , after which NiKo took the role and they beat astralis , liquid and destroyed na'vi in that final to win epicenter while winning the MVP... They didn't achieve anything after that bcs they didn't practise knowing karrigan would be benched so it would make no since to practice with karrigan...
2018-12-31 18:05
niko doesn't need to be igl, he needs to focus on his killings. Faze is missing what Astralis has an igl that can madfrag. If they find the igl that can frag and be constant every game, then they will take down astralis and be top1.
2018-12-31 18:55
NiKo still top frags most of his games while being an IGL , he was the mvp at EPICENTER , tournament that he IGLed complitely...
2019-01-02 23:13
FaZe Happy, 2 majors, more motivation 4 majors in total coming to Happy in 2019
2018-12-31 18:01
With NiKo IGLing I think FaZe won't be #1
2018-12-31 18:16
Not true imo , they had streak of nice preformances and won epicenter , he was really into it and was watching a lot of vods , they finshed the end of the year badly cuz they didn't practise , they knew karrigan would be benched so it would be pointless to practice with him...
2018-12-31 19:09
A bad move from coach to player

Regardless who they pick up, faze will still be in a slump. Disband, set Niko free from theses bots.
2019-01-02 19:29
And where does he go then ?
2019-01-02 21:35
I think with Adren will FaZe found their missing piece. (like in 2k17 with guardian & olof, but back then karrigan can igl)
2019-01-02 19:33
We will have to see...
2019-01-02 23:15
how fucking stupid you need to be... i mean s1mple is just a million dolar away i guess faze will go thought the cheap away and get adren for a nicle
2019-01-02 21:37
And what makes you think s1mple would join ?
2019-01-02 23:15
lol as if people here knew better than the players and board members of FaZe themselves
2019-01-03 06:39

2019-01-03 07:19

2019-01-03 12:03
i think faze will get Friberg or s1mple
2019-01-04 09:49

Because faze needs an igl to work. They don't need more firepower.
