FaZe now is the right moment
NiKo | 
Greece tacotico 
The only change they need is 1 good replacement for Olof. And the best one possible rn is definetely ropz. Now is the right moment to sign him because of the player break. Last tournament of the year for FaZe was IEM Winter and now they will have like 1,5 months player break so they will have much time to work with ropz. They can do bootcamps , work hard on roles and chemistry of the team and ropz will have time to adapt for sure. Then , FaZe can look promissing going into 2022 and if not winning something at least they can make some finals or what. Tbh i think that sooner or later they will sign him FOR SURE.

In my opinion thats not the bitch role... The bitch role is the support role. (The positions that for example Olof, tiziaN, xyp9x etc. play) Olof is not the problem. He plays the support role pretty good by now. The problem is that they play extremely inconsistent. Cutting Olof for ropz will force rain into the support role. A role he never played before and probably won't enjoy. Also rain and Olof are best buddies so that will negatively influence his performance even more. In my opinion they should either cut rain for ropz or he has to perform more consistent. Another problem is that ropz isn't really an entry player. Nor is Twistzz. They both have kind of the same role I guess. Don't get me wrong I really like rain and I would love to see the current iteration of FaZe to have much success, especially because I'm a big fan of both Olof and rain. But cutting Olof won't do it. If you just acknowledge stats, then yes Olof might be the obvious choice. But like many people said, who plays the bitch role then? Putting Twistzz or ropz there doesn't make sense, so rain is the only choice. And then you can just keep Olof instead of having rain learning all the positions.

+1 people who have no idea about how roles work think -olof is the solution due to his stats. Rarely you watch a faze game and say "wow, if olof got that kill, faze would have won". Olof isn't actually the problem, he is pretty good at "playing the right way" and giving the best possible odds for faze to win. Rain is also starting to pick up form and having good rating, so you wouldn't want him to get kicked either. Faze doesn't need changes, they are just lacking consistency. One day they might win heroic and play very well vs navi, and the other day they might lose to a team like mousesports etc.

2021-12-06 17:14
You make a vague statement like "olof his support" but don't actually list any supportive things he does which is pretty telling. He and ropz are extremely simial players which is why his stats are so problamatic.

Cat mirage ct side, b site overpass, ct b site ancient, ct a site pit inferno, ramp/b ct side nuke, b site dust 2 all anchor positions. Their tside setups are so dynamic that he may entry one round, support the next, then lurk the round after that. He’s a support role in that sense, that he does whatever the team needs at any given moment
2021-12-06 22:45
2 replies
Most of the CT positions you listed are not even remotely support and many are played by Ropz. If Cat is support what isn't? Thier T-side setups are not that dynamic he is lurking in the majority and he basically never entrees. Twistzz goes out first far more often than him. He has one of the lowest entry attempts of any player in the top 20.

that is the main problem. They only signed Twistzz because they could not get ropz back then, now there would be a massive role overlap and Twistzz would have to play much more aggressive than he is used to.

faze has multiple problems, not just olof going negative, ropz is not gonna make them a top 3 team. Rain is very inconsistent, twistzz imo would be better off being a role player, karrigan carrys once every 10 games, rest he has 0.7 rating and broky is solid, looks promising but is also not the carry that can make up for 2-3 missing players by game like zywoo does or s1mple had to do it back in the days
2021-12-06 11:41
15 replies
of course not, s1mple and zywoo are beyond everyone else. only niko and device who could catch them in terms of consistency and carrying (but still far behind). surely ropz signing wont make them top 3, but at least his firepower alone could improve faze significantly and maybe prevent them from choking crucial rounds. they lost many time with close map like 16-14/13 against top 10 teams like heroic, vp, gambit etc and with ropz joining, it boost their chance against another top 10 even navi or g2.

Rain has the worse role. Many times as T side, he dies with 0 impact coz they need info. Karrigan and rain must work in rain T sides.
2021-12-06 11:57
I will be very optimistic if this roster move happens becouse 1 good player in the team can boost other players stats. When you see faze playing they cant leave olof alone on a bomb site for a while they have to make sure he isnt the only one on the bomb site becouse that would be a weak link. If you have a player like ropz who always is good for 2 can make retakes / T rounds so much easier. and T rounds is what faze is lakking atm. But im an optimistic fan so i can just eb talking shit to get my hopes up

the obvious reason is them lacking firepower in their aggressive players. Adding another passive player will not change much. Yes ropz is a much better player than olof as an individual, but he will not get them entries on the t side. Twistzz and ropz perform the best when their team got into a bombsite and they can play the planted bomb.

Agreed and thats why i said rain should be consistent cause his impact is massive And about ropz honestly it ain't like he cant get opening frags so thats an upgrade totally also on ctside they would be so much stronger Btw ik this game is a teamgame but we are always witnessing individual performances (clutches,2v3,3v4 and etc) so thats why there is difference between a team like G2 who has a player like niko and a team like Mad lions who doesn't have any superstar for example
2021-12-06 18:31
tbh as dumb as it sounds the best move right now would be -Twistzz +huNter, -rain +JaCkz, -olof +NiKo -karrigan IGL+ 1st entry or support -NiKo doing NiKo things -huNter 2nd entry or support -JaCkz 1st or 2nd entry -broky AWP + closer But i don't think they have plans to change anything and they could not afford the G2 core anyway.

After so many lineup changes, coldzera, Niko, karrigan, twistzz, olof, I think the real problem is Rain. Their previous lineup was a very strong, i dont why they haven't reached the top 1 yet, that's the only explanation for me. He has always been in all lineups, and Faze has always had exceptional players.
2021-12-06 20:59
I gotta say, I think this is a pretty good roster move. Ropz already has great experience playing under karrigan.

for some reason this Faze team just feels like it's not going to work, I don't see the "amazing duo" in the team the chemistry doesn't look like it's there, players are cold then they're hot then they're cold again. I feel like this team needs like 3 more moves but I couldn't tell you what those moves are, maybe Ropz is 1 but I dunno this team just looks like it's always going to be one step from greatness but never taking that step.

if you look at this Faze right now they were like top 10 team and were close beating like Navi had close maps always against top 5 teams because firepower was lacking from the inconsistency of rain to olofmeister not getting easy killsand some calls also but + ropz would improve both consistency and firepower but yeah still there are more problems but with ropz addition I think they would be more consistent imo
