Since yNK took over as a coach for Faze clan they have only won Blast events. Blast Pro Series Miami 2019 Blast Pro Series Copenhagen 2019 Blast Premier Spring 2020: Regular Season Group A Sure, during these events they won over good/great teams, and they've most definitely have had nice results. But isn't this what we should expect from a team as FaZe? I am not saying he is bad, but considering how much money they've put into this team, and all the roster changes they've had during the same period, shouldn't it be his turn to be either benched or given a new job?

They'll rekt them before that as well... If they meet eachother. Can't wait until 2021 for next lan to see it happen. And why just Na'Vi? Seems like any team that can keep their composure will win over FaZe
2020-03-30 17:53
NAVI even dont enter next lan.

the only reason why he's staying there because he can communicate with niko in serbian and basically help him with his igling maybe he's just a really nice coach who knows? maybe its the team? all these roster changes are telling something. but what?

I just wish they would get RobbaN back so we could see the same consistency of long runs as they did back then.
2020-03-30 17:54
Im pretty sure Robban wanted to step down

Yeah I know. He became a father and wanted to work from home. Understandable. But they should give yNK a different role and get another coach. I don't doubt yNK got lot to offer, but I doubt that coach is the best way for him to do it.

Online CS Lul. Also was the only who put a fight against Navi on katowice.

What else to blame? They did well before he joined and haven't while he has been coach
2020-03-30 17:55
They did well before ynk joined? They did a bad job since karrigan left

Nah, since they stopped listening to Karrigan. But thry did better under Robban than under yNK
2020-03-30 18:01
Yes, with a different roster

Who cares about the coach. Coach like Adren can win Grand Slam, Coach like Kane can lead Gambit to the major

Coach like B1ad3 can turn the sinking ship of Na'Vi to #1 Just see what changes FaZe have tried past couple of years and check what seems to be the issue.
2020-03-30 18:00
The reason why Navi become #1 is because they kicked guardian Coach like B1ad3 can't turn Navi to #1 with Guardian in the team

So why even have coaches if it doesn't matter?
2020-03-30 18:03
considering he actually does starts etc, then he has been bad I think

Yeah but that was 6 months and tbf they didn't do anything with Zews either nor before yNK. So bad example. But sure, you can take it into consideration

It's not his fault at all I think (I can't be sure cuz I am only a viewer) he is a very good coach that actually gives a fuck, not only steals paychecks
2020-03-30 18:11

I think he would do more job just being an analyst and let someone else be coach.

sure, his track record with Faze is pretty bad. But let's give him a chance, its been only few months with this core idk wtf Faze was thinking with its roster after kicking karrigan until kicking gaurdian. Maybe that's because of ynk over-estimating a lot of things

The core of this team has been together for years. The full roster have had 7 months. You usually say that a roster need 3 months before we can evaluate them. For the past 3 months FaZe more or less only got 3 maps and on those maps they only got a handfull of strats. I would say the only reason they got decent results and decent scores is because of the whole Covid-19 thing. I believe they will get read before next big event, but who knows when that will be? Perhaps slower building teams will benefit from the current situation in the scene.
2020-03-30 21:15
YNk back to analysis desk plz
2020-03-30 21:18
I think they would do better if they got rid of Olof and got someone else he is a bit washed up nowadays. YNK is a good analyst but not sure about coatching... Maybe get someone else as the main coach and have YNK as a second supporting coatch who is more like an analyst who goes through the opponents tactics etc.

that is what I think would be best for them as well. Considering how big org they are it should be possible to find one good coach for them and let yNK do the more theoretical Olof seems like the next player to leave. But I doubt they'll find a good fit. They actually need an IGL but not sure there will be anyone that can gather NiKo and Coldzera together. Perhaps nexa but that is highly doubtful.
2020-03-30 22:20
Would also be costly to get a second coach and a top IGL considering they paid 1 million for Coldzera last year
2020-03-30 22:21

Sweden Lagge15 
Yeah and all the scandals have cost them quite a bit. Not sure if they would go for an IGL or if they'd go for a versitile player. But they got the money. But thry won't spend it unless they get results
2020-03-30 22:27
Yeah thats true. Also I think it would be hard to find an IGL that would get Niko and Cold do as he says as I think their egos can be too big for them to listen to someone else
2020-03-30 22:35

Sweden Lagge15 
Yup. Definitely. If you don't listen to Karrigan, who are you going to listen to? Maybe Gla1ve but he will most likely not leave Astralis for a while and has only done calling in Danish
2020-03-30 22:36
Yeah mens agreed maybe they should get someone who is a good allaround player idk only time will tell
2020-03-30 22:42

Sweden Lagge15 
yeah, some sort of versitile player. Ulimate would probably be someone like Stewie2k or NAF. But that's literally impossible unless they move the whole team to NA.
2020-03-30 23:39
idk he seems like one of the few coaches who actually thinks about the game, but that alone wont make them win when theyre 5v5 on the server
2020-03-30 22:29

I don't wanna get rid of him. I think he got lots of value for Faze. Just not as a coach. Use him as some sort of analyst instead
2020-03-30 22:34
isnt that what coaches usually already do watch demos and instruct the team during training?
2020-03-30 22:35

Some/most do that. But they also help out mid game with mentality and in-game quick fixes
2020-03-30 22:36
kinda silly they need a hype man in the back cheering them on, grown men with long careers except for broky of course. they should be able to motivate themselves.

check their score lines in IEM Katowice and EPL. Start off great first half first map, and after that it is more or less just down-hill. Something seems really weird when it comes to their long games. Perhaps not a coach issue, perhaps they just eat candy and drink suger filled energy drinks

Faze´s problem isn´t their coach but their roster. They don´t have a consistent main awperneither a good igl, cuz niko is the best player in their team and with the better carry potential but he is the one who is calling the shots, and latelyu, Faze T side hasn´t been that convincent. Niko needs to focus more on his own game and stop calling the shots. -olof ; -broky +aleksib ; +shazam
2020-03-30 22:52
coincidence i think not
2020-03-30 23:34
I've been tempted a few times to make a thread on the faze issues but I'm willing to respect the information given from people and don't want to name them. in small summary : many top players have said no to faze recently due to issues with niko who wants full control of the team and wants them to play around him, is this right? hes a top player so who knows! 2 players in the top10 both turned faze down to replace karri/guard and have won trophies since. others see him as someone with a god complex and they chose to return to former teams.
