Options for FaZe?
 | 
India _Jazz_ 
I don't know if FaZe really wants to change their roster coz they have set roles currently and it's not easy to just change roster anytime. It will again take time for them to settle. If that happens, most likely olof will be removed. What are their options? Don't say ALEX or nexa or someone who is not gonna join. Maybe someone from Mad Lions or Heroic?

Topics are hidden when running Sport mode.
the best one would be -olof +alex

If he joins a team other than Vitality rn, he will get a lot of hate.
2020-04-08 22:29
He'll fit perfectly in the Faze team then
2020-04-09 01:16
Yeah i dont believe it either, its like the whole oh i just want a new challenge shit when people leave teams that are winning or have just won a big event but you know wont win anything else.
2020-04-09 00:54
With this covid thing now almost every tournament is going to be held online, so there's a chance alex can join them

He don't needs to travel right now, everything is gonna be online for some time since this shit is gonna stay here for more than what people think. By the way, I think that they will search for a support role, not an IGL, so someone like Broky who comes from fpl or something could be better since they already have 3 experienced guys.

G2 is bad, hyped up on serbs power, they always were bad and they'll for sure ruin their careers. I see what opportunities FaZe miss with signing such bots as cold & broky, feels like staff don't really care about their team.

Maybe. Even if I assume they r trash, it doesn't mean that nexa and hunter will leave. I don't think anyone would leave that soon after joining when they r the only hope for that sinking team. They may leave after major, but they won't leave G2 atm.

smooya is an option. Alex not gonna happen. jks won't probably leave his team just like that. I mean his team is quite stable too.
2020-04-08 22:22
Also they have been together for quite long time so i dont think so, they even swap to other team together all 5 so they are friends, same reason why Forest and GTR still play together
2020-04-08 22:24
remove Olof since faze already has Broky for main awper,add Alex since he's not playing with any team

I mean, if they could -olof -rain, +nexa +huNter they essentially beat the internet. That said, thats what we thought when they got niko, guardiaN and karrigan. TL:DR cursed org
2020-04-08 22:23
-olof + neaLaN as IGL

Option A - Kick the worst player on the team (rain) Option B - Kick NiKo even though he's the most skilled player in order to change the fundamental culture and balance of the team. The second option may seem stupid, but traditional sports teams have been known to get rid of superstars with huge egos and actually improve as a result.
2020-04-08 22:31
Lol Rain worst? He is much better than OLof and more impactfull than Brooky. I could see a huge improvement even in Brooky if Great igl will lead Faze.

Olof is the support player and gets given all of the worst roles. Rain is supposed to be one of the stars. When the support player and star both have bad stats, it's pretty stupid to blame the support player just because their stats are X amount lower. Rain is actually underperforming more when roles are taken into consideration. As for Broky, he's young and has lots of potential. It wasn't that long ago that Brollan was very underwhelming with similar stats and performances as Broky, then suddenly he found his place on Fnatic and became one of the best players in Sweden.
2020-04-08 22:44
I dont know what youre trying to say, but Olof look scared and stupid in many situations. No role will help him. Brooky play little bit scared, but very calculated and smart. Olof as a individual is a bot. What role does he play on ct if he hold sites so bad?

I disagree. Just coz he kicked karrigan doesn't mean he has a big ego. Everyone knows karrigan's calls weren't working out for FaZe. So, he had too. And it is always a team decision. No one can just kick any player in the team, that too IGL, just like that. The other possibility was to add IGL, which they did as Neo, but that didn't work out too. Aleksib was an option and I think it might have been a good decision but maybe his playstyle doesn't suit FaZe's. Moreover, rain is doing a decent job. olof is the problem. He is playing bad roles but it doesn't mean u lose all duels. He barely managed to get a single kill on CT side Nuke. NaVi exploited that fact and pressurised him continuously. That lead to FaZe getting only 8 rounds on CT side Nuke. Maybe NiKo isn't a good IGL, but he certainly has brought FaZe to top 7. FaZe are losing close 2-1 so maybe replacing olof could be the winning recipe.

This isn't just about the decision to kick Karrigan. I actually agree that Karrigan had to go, and I consider him massively overrated as an IGL (he had the Astralis core at his disposal and couldn't win anything ffs). The problem is that NiKo has far too much control over the team, and I don't ever see that changing, no matter what IGLs they bring in. It's sort of like the Shox situation in the French scene where he always ends up wanting to lead even when he's not the IGL, only this is worse because NiKo has a far more dominant personality than Shox. Sometimes you just have to make the big changes in order to change the culture of a team. Too many teams have fallen into the habit of kicking the worst player or the 5th over and over again with no success when they should be looking to change the identity and culture.

But for the long run, that isn't good. Not all tourneys in the future will be online. Moreover, he will get a lot of hate if he does that.

There aren't good IGL's available. Faze should never have passed up on Alexsib

I don't care at all but niko can't IGL, he just fucking can't he is awful at doing it +He is playing worse because of that I don't know maybe change coach as well cuz they are fucking clueless on tt side vs well organised teams and it clearly looks like they are not improving at all. All maps they can do damage on tt side are maps that are all about individual skill like dd2 or mirage (and keep in mind that I am talking about matches vs tier 1 opponents only) And their teamplay is awful as well, it just looks like they are not praticing at all They don't need more firepower, they need to become a team. Since Karrigan left faze hasn't been a team, all about individual skill and if they have a bad day they lose everything. I seriously think it's motivation problem, they just don't give a single fuck. Karrigan was studying demos, creating strats and faze was playing like a team. Now it's just a mix team

-broky (if he is the main awp) -ynk Give olof 1 more go, he needs to improve his lurker skills ALOT so it gives faze some space in T side. Of course improving his AIM goes without question. broky is no way near a t1 awper ynk has been with faze for far too long with no consistent results and thier struggle against eco and CT sides continues. Map pool depth hasn't improved either. Coach has to take some blame for their team's consistent bad performances.
