New Faze after major
United Kingdom joe761 
We know by the practice leak that the core is now: Niko Rain Olofmeister The two new players seem to be: Broky Coldzera I think Coldzera is playing on YnK friends account as he has been staying in Serbia for a while and would want to avoid any potential leaks that he is practicing with the Faze guys; Why did Faze not get AleksiB :'( I am sad now.

No I think hes just a rifler meant to be a young "star" player. He at least has decent performance on LAN compared to his teammates.

Man, his stats are seriously bad as for young "star" player. People like frozen, woxic, xantares, tenz or anyone else who wanted go to T1 team were dominating T2 teams.
2019-09-07 13:02
I haven't watched him before but hes proven on LAN so I assume that's what Faze was looking at. I would have preferred AleksiB over him though.

No, I'm dumb, I think CRUC1AL does
2019-09-07 11:56
No worries friend, I think he picks up the secondary awp every now and again.
2019-09-07 11:58
Yup CRUC1AL is the awper

dunno ... i think olof and guardian should go ? i dunno what to do with that roster ,its like broken lego messed up by bubblegum
2019-09-07 11:56
I mean Olof is the support / anchor so removing him and adding a young star / Coldzera would make one of them play like shit. Guardian has been in a slump and NEO hasn't been able to utilize Niko effectively.

Sweden b8police 
olof was a god in the major though. he has to stay
2019-09-07 14:18
I think FaZe could gamble on Aleksib and oskar, the former is one of the best IGLs in the scene at the moment and the latter is a consistent awper. I think both combined do not cost more than coldzera ($1M) EDIT: With these moves, the roles would be : Aleksib - IGL + entry/support olof - support rain - entry NiKo - lurk + 2nd awp oskar - main awp
2019-09-07 11:59
I'm unsure about oskar. Hes a good awper but there were many discussions of commitment problems / negativity within mousesports where he didn't want to practice etc... I feel like hes similar to Guardian which is what Faze would want to avoid.
2019-09-07 12:00
Finland EdiEz 
It's good that Aleksib didn't join washed up faze
2019-09-07 11:59
But AleksiB would make Faze not be washed up. They would sign him +1 other and he could lead them to greatness. Imagine what he could do with Niko, Rain, Olof and Coldzera when he took Ence to number 2 with less-skilled players.
2019-09-07 12:01
Finland EdiEz 
Yeah, that's true maybe he had an offer from faze but declined. It's kinda strange that they would pick some Epsilon player over AleksiB
2019-09-07 12:04

4 selfish bots lul impossible to lead them its fine to have ONE of them in a team oriented atmosphere so they can bait some lesser skilled team mates but 4 of those dont really work as faze shows time and time again
2019-09-07 12:05
Another mindless idiot who just assumes 4 good players in one team = EGO hell and selfish. I guess Liquid are all selfish and cant work together. Same with 2015 / early 2016 fnatic.
2019-09-07 12:13
Germany pmb  
yes yes I see british politeness at its peak early fanatic players were no stars before, teamwork made them successfull - now they kinda suck again. Liquid lost badly to lesser individual players this major, im not quite sure how this is relevant, but yes, they come closest to a star lineup which kinda works. At least they speak the same native language and have a common goal in mind. I dont see this kind of cohesion in your faze lineup.
2019-09-07 12:18
Fnatic players were absolutely stars. They were potentially the best Swedish players at the time. The cohesion will come from: Core faze been together since 2017 Niko Olofmeister Rain Coldzera is close friends with Ynk and Niko. AleksiB is young and seems a very friendly and easy to like personality but also a very driven person. He would be the one who drives competitiveness into the roster and the passion to perform and become a staple top 1 team. You seem very negative / hateful by bringing my nationality into the discussion for no apparent reason. Just enjoy the theory number 1 team in the world.
2019-09-07 12:25

At the time, especially late 2014, get_right and f0rest were still considered to be swedens best. krimz and olof had a good showing in lgb, but ultimately didnt achieve much in terms of results. pronax was always dog shit in terms of fragging, same with devilwalk. jw/flusha/krimz and olof were defintily top10 players in sweden though, no doubt about that. but the faze core doesnt seem to show any teamwork between each other even after playing for 2 years together. there is no natural supporting between each other like astralis or even old fnatic showed, a team that was all about making very simple strats work with a very good team work. That is why I am very skectipcal. If you tried to play a bit in leagues etc you might understand what I team - the fluidity between players just isnt there. Also we know from olof that he didnt "give a shit" for pronax calling - doesnt bode well with an internationally inexperienced igl from finland. cold in turn showed how toxic he really was after his mibr departure, but who knows. as it is just a theory team, there is a possibility that you and all the other star hungry faze fans are right and this is the solution. we likely never find out. But well, maybe
2019-09-07 12:48
Old Fnatic had drifted apart and all had issues with each other which is why they all talked negatively about each other after they disbanded. Look back at the vods especially where you had access to teamspeak Olof and the rest of Fnatic always listened to pronax's calls so him saying he "didn't give a shit" was clearly down to he only thought about getting the kills to open up rounds instead of looking into what pronax was calling. He was doing his role as the "star player". Faze have had tournaments where they naturally trade/flash each other into sites and the teamwork is amazing but unfortunately they have been in a huge slump which is why they haven't looked good in this regard because they have all been performing like shit. You trying to take the high ground because you have "played in leagues" thinking it gives you an in-depth view of the Pro scene is a joke :D And once again with the assuming that I want a "star" Faze even though that's what the Faze roster was supposed to be initially. The leak shows the players that are considered and a lot of them are pointing out DickB0mb who is YnKs friend and as Coldzera is in Serbia its easy to connect the dots and see he could be playing on his account. The only player I said I wanted on Faze was AleksiB but too bad time in "leagues" didn't help your reading comprehension. Please stop responding because you are embarrassing yourself with your points / comments where you try and make yourself sound like a professional / analyst.

ok, we can end this discussion with once again you trying to insult me as you run out of arguments. There is nothing new to respond to anyways.
2019-09-07 13:53
I haven't insulted you at all. You are the only one who has attempted insults of any kind with your little smug remarks. But I agree its not with continuing this discussion because you have nothing to bring to it.

rain is probably the least selfish of the bunch. still, he mostly takes fights alone and more often than not just dies

Aleksib, cold, olof, Niko, rain pls I can only get so hard
2019-09-07 12:02
It would be a very stacked roster especially if Olof and Rain returned to form. I would even say it would be the MOST stacked roster ever if the players were in form. Faze 2017 on steroids.
2019-09-07 12:11
wouldnt even be top 5
2019-09-07 12:21
They would be a 10000% top 1 contender with time to settle into the team. Even if you hate Coldzera etc... You have to be delusional to deny that.
2019-09-07 12:26
maybe like 5 years ago
2019-09-07 12:37
Why are you so negative friend? I looked into your comment history and you are bashing gays for "having an obvious fault in their brain" ?? and you wanted to put them on an island and nuke them?? what is wrong with you? Are you in denial?

listen Joe 672, if u had a head like mine u would be pissed off all the time too

Algeria Maxmeister 
they did also with their previous roster with karrigan ,when rain was beast ,guardian was the best awper in the world ,NiKo good forme ,olof doing his support job and karrigan with his good igleading ,but then ...
2019-09-07 14:29
but then Eleague Boston happened and they questioned themselves and started choking more. Faze now is still a good team if they had confidence and maybe adding a new IGL/coldzera would give them that confidence they need to take 9/10 aim duels with the mentality that they will win it.
2019-09-07 14:31

i respect you man ps :im a faze fan too but i felt a bit ashamed of the way they become so im fake faning navi :'(
2019-09-07 14:35
wtf mens((( atleast your heart says fazeup
2019-09-07 15:25
cold is not going to work at all, such a bad idea
2019-09-07 12:20
You don't know until you try. Who would have thought adding a personality like Stewie to a team with NAF Elige and Twistz would work? one very hyped and energetic personality with 3 laid back calm players. It's always worth a try if it can lead to greatness.
2019-09-07 12:28
Did you enjoy Niko’s in-game leading? Yes, I enjoyed it. He has a lot of fresh and interesting ideas. His issue is that he doesn’t have as much experience as a captain at the top level, and didn’t elaborate things in as much detail as the team required. Essentially, the team didn’t always understand his plan, and he had to explain post-game what he meant. Despite this, he is a great captain, and a testament to this fact is the number of tournaments we won in a short period of time.
2019-09-07 12:34
Niko IGL can work if players perform and are hitting all their shots. just look at Epicenter 2018 where Faze beat Ence, Navi and Liquid to win and every single player on Faze was just hitting their shots. Adding Coldzera could top the firepower to allow Niko IGL to work.
2019-09-07 12:41
2019-09-07 12:43
NiKo as igl suck, simply because since he became one he has become merely a good player. NiKo is a carry type player you build the team around, if you wan't a decent player there are 100s of others to pick from.
2019-09-07 14:56

The thing is, making Niko IGL was a good decision, because it worked. Even with AdreN. And if you ask me, Cold is a better fragger than AdreN, and the only player I would be willing to replace is NEO, so if replacing him with Cold meant that Niko has to IGL again, I'm okay with it, and I think Olof, GuardiaN and rain are too, because they all won a couple trophies under Niko's IGL-ing.
2019-09-07 13:26
broky and cold could work
2019-09-07 14:19
picking up broky seems like a nice change from old legends of the game Adren, NEO. Both were good for experience because they are veterans but now seems like Faze want to try some new blood.
2019-09-07 14:20
2019-09-07 14:21
I doubt thats the core that will stay but if so and olof still plays support then FaZe is just a waste of time. I wish them much fun with their 7th place in the rankings.
2019-09-07 12:38
That's what the leak was. It makes sense Guardian was just under performing and every time Niko, Rain Olof played FPL guardian would just play faceit with his friends. removing NEO would make sense if they added an IGL but they clearly don't like how he cant get Niko to perform to his old levels so they don't want to risk him staying and Niko still under performing.
2019-09-07 12:44
I know who was on the scrim server, I saw it with my own eyes. Its still 10 days away from EPL roster lock and FaZe more or less just returned from the major.
2019-09-07 13:01
Then you would also know that Guardian has been in a huge slump and has been performing as bad as Olofmeister who is playing Anchor/support. That is not a star awper worth keeping if he stays in this slump.
2019-09-07 13:05
Its FaZe, logic doesnt apply here. Doesnt change the fact that olof still shouldnt play support.
2019-09-07 13:06
I agree but they will probably let Olof play awp more which means he can show he is still good and still has what it takes to be a second star.
2019-09-07 13:08
they need to bring coldzera, and karrigan back
2019-09-07 12:48
I don't think Karrigan would work in Faze it's hard removing an IGL because their calls weren't working and then adding him back. If the Faze boys really lost faith in him then adding him back wouldn't work at all because they would always default back to "this didn't work before" "we tried this and it never works". That and Karrigan is doing well in mousesports so far give him more time to develop frozen, woxic etc...
2019-09-07 13:00
2019-09-07 14:27
I personally wouldn't he seems way to chaotic when calling and I don't think Faze is good under extreme pressure as we all saw during Eleague major final. But I guess it could be a choice if they wanted an older IGL.
2019-09-07 14:28
when is the esl new york roster lock
2019-09-07 14:35
who would u put as igl in faze? Not alot of IGL maybe some igl like ALEX, i know he wont left Vitality, but seems like good igl/fragger
2019-09-07 15:17
Olof will be still in the team? lol
2019-09-07 13:01
Pointless removing a decent anchor/support for another star.
2019-09-07 13:05
he is not decent on anything. I could easily kick him for Aleksib
2019-09-07 13:07
He is more than decent given his positions and how bad his team has been struggling. Guardian and Rain have been inconsistent so when they lose whatever bombsite they are holding it's Olof who has to go all the way to the other side of the map and try a retake. When Faze was performing well as a team late 2017 / early 2018 Olof was putting up pretty good numbers.
2019-09-07 13:10
"He is not decent on anything" - 1.15 rating at major
2019-09-07 15:27
best possible outcome should be - nik0 rain olof cold aleksib / guardian .. p.s. - i like Neo , faze should give him some time to buildup the greatest team ever
2019-09-07 13:05
I think NEO did well within Faze especially on Nuke T side they looked very impressive on it after they had time to prepare. but if they could swap him for AleksiB and maybe Guardian for Coldzera or keep guardian and hope he gets out of his slump. It would be magical.
2019-09-07 13:07
why woiuld they kick GuardiaN lol
2019-09-07 14:20
Because guardian has been in a slump and is missing easy shots and having no impact at all? hes in a star role and is putting up similar numbers to Olofmeister who's support/anchor.
2019-09-07 14:21
Yeah sure thats why he carried FaZe in major finals vs Cloud9 meanwhile his team was total dogshit
2019-09-07 14:22
I'm not saying Guardian is bad but you literally referenced a tournament from a year ago. Recently hes been terrible and if you watch the games hes a shadow of his former self.
2019-09-07 14:23
-neo +cold keep guardian ez
2019-09-07 14:24
Personally would do -NEO +AleksiB and see if he can get guardian performing well again.
2019-09-07 14:25
that comparison tells me that you felt to often on your head, when you a were a brat. what a stupid argument
2019-09-07 14:27 I can tell aswell
2019-09-07 14:28
and who cares about them? I lost a bet that is why I've them on my flair... Except of RpK I couldn't care less about those baguettes.
