Why NEO is what faze needs
 | 
Australia krittyx 
-Tons of experience -Tons of knowledge -Best IGL in VP's prime time -FaZe lacks an IGL -Will pass the golden rule onto faze (never bet for/against VP)

FaZe before karrigan - Shit FaZe with karrigan for 85% of the time - Very good, won 7 tournaments. FaZe for the last 15% with karrigan - Fairly poor but still won a tournament, got legends spot at major and top 4 iem Chicago.
2019-05-16 09:26
Won under niko's leading and karrigan even if he didn't have to be an IGL still underperformed
2019-05-16 09:54
Won 2 tournaments 1 without astralis another which was 5 bo1 against a TL that cant win a final
2019-05-17 06:45
I was talking about tournaments when karrigan was with faze but not as IGL

they sucked not cuz of Karrigan they sucked cuz they were really bad. From such players you have in the team, you can expect more to think about the game by themselves. But instead, lay back and wait for IGL call. Faze is by far a "top team" with the worst player chemistry in history of 1.6 CSS and csgo together.

2019-05-16 09:19
Ange1 is abetter igl and a better fragger than neo
2019-05-16 11:15
Based on what exactly is he better igl? And better fragger? Maybe check his performance past 12 months lol... And on top of that he isn't free agent
2019-05-16 11:57
btw... last 12 months on lan hltv.org/stats/players/339/ANGE1?startDa.. last 12 months in big events hltv.org/stats/players/339/ANGE1?startDa.. last 12 months on lan vs top20 teams hltv.org/stats/players/339/ANGE1?startDa.. last 12 months on lan vs top10 teams hltv.org/stats/players/339/ANGE1?startDa.. now tell me 1, just 1 good reason why should faze even try to buy this player out of his contract. he is also 29 years old, his performance is horrible and he is pretty much average igl...and based on what navi said when they wanted him before, his buy out is actually pretty damn big so its not worth at all
2019-05-16 12:20
I never said him in faze would be a good idea. My claim about him being a good igl is based on the last 11 years of his cs career and not the last 12 months
2019-05-17 00:15
what exactly did he achieve in those 11 years...? its not only about experience but also about actual RESULTS. btw how are those xyz years relevant to his igl abilities currently? yea, right... and you literally said that "better fragger than neo" which is based on fact actually debatable and probably not true
2019-05-17 00:42
Ah right if you think that cs began 12 months ago i can see why youd also think neo wouldve achieved more than angel as an igl of the players angel has been playing with. Makes sense.
2019-05-17 01:00
ange had s1mple, oskar, guardian, prime dosia and edward, woxic, issaa so what the hell are you talking about? and i never said that cs begun 12 months ago but those 12 months are the most relevant. gtr was also the best player in the world so what? how is it relevant nowadays? int isnt

He hound all those players himself except the old ones,(Dosia, Guard etc). He convinced on signing an unknown 1v1 player s1mple and found all these top players on fpl and turned them into t1 pro players. The majority of players in fpl, that wasnt invited there, struggle 2 become even a descent pro player, not even t1. He never had a chance to play for top5 team because navi always had zeus and ange1 wasn't needed
2019-05-17 07:20
I agree with the fact that he gave a chance to unproven players and turned them into t1 players but that's not what faze needs. They need igl that is able to lead the team for titles and that's what in my opinion ange can't do... And BTW he was in top5 teams - virtus pro with few decent runs and Astana dragons aka the cis super team that wasn't able to reach their potential at all
2019-05-17 07:50
Ange1 is a bad IGL , he won nothing in his csgo career. They could aim for Zeus, maybe he is bad invidual but he is a smart and good IGL.

2019-05-16 08:39
acco to that logic, neo is better than any other option they can pick.... ever.
2019-05-16 08:49
They played OK with Niko's igl so they need young player with awesome aim like sunny but not eldest player in cs:go scene (does not matter how much experience he had). Look at top 3 world at the moment. Did you saw 30+ yo player in liquid? Astralis? Ence?

Ahahahaa That's an incredibly short sighted point. If someone has been building cars for 30 years and you bring in a new floor manager who has worked in the industry for 5 years, but understands the new system being used better, that worker has more experience and knowledge than the 30 year worker. FaZe plays very similar to the 2014 VP set up that Neo lead. His experience and knowledge is helpful to them. It has absolutely nothing to do with career length.
2019-05-16 09:38
And what experience will neo give that faze need. Faze are better in every single way to vp. Counter strike is very basic compared to real life professions. There isnt anything neo can tell to anyone in the tier 1 scene that can improve them except for something mentally and maybe a smoke lineup

Stop making short sighted comments with nothing to back it up. FaZe is better than VP, yes, that's my point. They are better, but play the same way VP did back in their prime. The IGL that lead them during that period will slot in and help them more than a more tactical IGL. You don't know what Neo knows, or what FaZe needs, so you're posting guesses at best. I've stated what we do know. This isn't even touching on the fact that FaZe players wanted Neo, so they obviously have some idea of what he brings to the table.
2019-05-16 11:01
How the fuck is it short sighted? What do you want me to do, do you want me to personally interview every single faze and previous vp player to gather in depth insight into they're lives and personal training regime? NEO CANNOT PROVIDE FAZE WITH ANYTHING. Vp's strats are outdated, they're skill has deteriorated. If i think really hard about the pros that neo can provide all i can come up with is; he offers an old strat that hasnt been tried in a long time, he offers a better practice routine that might be better for them or a different mentality coming into the game. That is literally it dude, like i said before, counter strike is very very basic compared to real professions. You dont seek wisdom from an old cs player

And what insight do you have that proves he "CANNOT PROVIDE FAZE WITH ANYTHING"? It's got nothing to do with VP's strats being outdated. FaZe play the same aim heavy, light tactic, mid round calls that VP of old did. The same strats Neo help create. The timeline of their strats mean nothing. Also I think I'll take the opinions of actual athletes regarding how basic or advanced a game/sport/lifestyle over some random dude on the internet. If you really think it's so basic, then there's no point talking because we see the game in a completely fundamentally different light.

2019-05-16 09:39
With experience comes knowledge so you can leave that as one dot point. Also, NEO is old, he can't do much fragging wise. They need an IGL who can IGL while at least support the squad with frags I'd also like to add that there was a time VP were extremely good, but they got taken down, meaning other teams got used to him and his tactics, they're going to easily overpower him again

He has motivation. He just needs someone to believe in him to regain selfconfidence. Lets hope he will get enough time in Faze cuz Niko may be impatient if results wont come soon.
2019-05-16 10:11
but the team he was with after the vp golden five broke were low tier teams...........and he wasnt doing well there either i honestly think this is a step back for FAZE they are literally gambling on someone who was doing average in low tier teams..yes his mind is a gold mine of game knowledge and strats but look at the top tier teams even the igl have skills of being in top 10 hltv.If Faze really wants to be able to pull this off then they have be realistic that the other 4 players is gonna up their game then it will be a beautiful big picture in the end
2019-05-16 10:40

2019-05-16 10:10

2019-05-16 11:28
Neo tactic... Nico go kill 🤫
2019-05-16 11:34
Why he isn't what FaZe needs: - Turns 32 years - Has wife and kids and not as much free time as a young and hungry player - Had his prime 5 years ago - Poor english skills - Has pretty much only experience in leading one team - Has been performing terribly the last years - Got benched from a tier 3 team 6 months ago
2019-05-16 11:37
- He turns 32 in 1 year - Have only wife - Had his prime 2 years ago taking VP to Major finals, and winning DM Las Vegas - Very good english - Have a lot of experience - Has been performing terribly just because of his teammates that should actually be carrying him, so he can focus on tacs, and enemys gameplay. - Got benched from a tier 3 team with tier 10 player from nowhere. + They had low morales, after bialy, and snax left VP. - + Polish community is a true trash. Talking shit, sending bad messages to him, and making not funny memes. To be honest the only thing made him so low right now are the fans that are expecting the best results, and if they are not getting it they are crying, and making fire everywhere.
2019-05-16 12:28
All I see is poor excuses and minor details. The simple truth is that he is old and has been performing terribly for years.
2019-05-16 13:01
same as all igls without glaive
2019-05-16 13:27
So you would rate Neo higher than players like aleksib, FalleN, lekr0, Xizt, karrigan, nitr0? The HLTV data sure doesn't.
2019-05-16 16:59
His english is actually pretty good. That bench doesnt mean anything it could have been family or other internal issues. Agree with the rest.
2019-05-16 12:29
One problem, he is not igl, in VP taz was igl. Very stupid choice for Faze. And now Neo is like get rekt, cant kill someone in the back rofl so yeah he is 100% bot right now

LOL A team needs just a good team leader. If 4 players are playing extreamly good they don't need anything else, but just good morales and psychicly be good. In faze i can see that there are only 2 guys that are playing good NiKo, and rain, rest of the team are just pure trash. They should kick guardian, and take some good sniper from EU scene like woxic or skadoodle Kick olof and take sunny instead. Niko(entry) sunny(rifler/second entry) woxic/skadoodle(awp) rain(rifler) neo(IGL) i think that a good team that could get something.

I don't know his reasons, but the guys has 3 majors and played for years on a big org, i think money is not a problem. But like i said, they could've just considered him, but never got in contact per say. But at this point in time, when they are calling even neo... dude, call him out.

Knowledge Hahaha so overrated nowadays when you see that 16 years old kids perform better than 80% of the people with 50000% more experience. Taz was the most important player in VP you see it with his new team. And if you believe Snax comments about NEO he will fail as IGL hard as possible So NEO is a downgrade to Adren.

good bait men
2019-05-16 12:44
they need young igl who can hit, player like Aleksib, not old bots like Neo
2019-05-16 12:49
They should -Niko so they can have the ultimate washed up team. On that team NEO is what they need
2019-05-16 12:50
Faze could bring in gla1ve for all I care but it wouldnt sort their issues out. Theres obviously a lack of motivation from the players and changing your 5ith around wont sort that.

his experience doesnt cover up the fact that he is a shit level pro. if faze had ambitions and wanted to win titles neo wouldnt have been considered. faze just dont give a fuck about winning anymore..

I agree, I think he will do good.
2019-05-16 13:16
how do you want to build tier1 team with tier3 player in roaster??? its unreal
2019-05-16 14:07
He might be the only igl who can realistically cuck niko.
2019-05-16 14:08
Perhaps not having 5 people from different countries would help. If they are all attempting to speak English they're never gonna be a team which consistently performs due to the fact Polish people surprisingly speak worse English than people from English speaking countries. -neo +daps
2019-05-16 14:10
why not stanislaw?
2019-05-16 15:20
Another solid choice. Realistically they need an american igl in order to have solid communication.

Neo the chosen one Don't need a discussion about it
2019-05-17 06:58
Flusha would be a nice option. He is an awesome fragger. Something tells me they might have already tried to get him though.
2019-05-17 07:25
yeah, they even wanted pronax xd. I think faze still lives in 2015, with neo and pronax being good. kick guardian, get autimatic, kick neo get ynk and wait for good igl like gob.b or chrisj
2019-05-17 17:27

2019-05-17 17:11
except neo didnt igl with english. he didnt play since 6 months he was even shit against tier5 teams. idk, imo YNK is even a better solution

may be, but we can`t know exactly. he didn`t play since 6 months thats why now he sucks.
2019-05-17 17:17
you have to look back, when they kicked taz, he was way more shit than him. he always was negative, and also losing to tier4 teams, that no one ever heard. like damn, if he sucks again in faze, just kick him and get ynk in, until an other big igl is free. but not neo wtf

they need comeback of Karrigan
2019-05-17 17:23
they want an igl that they respect, before they kicked karrigan it wasnt the case, but I think now they know how important he was. also I think they decided neo cuz they respect them and olof is like damn niko get neo he is legend :D
