your suggestions for their places?
Even if it's not looking good, I hope FaZe win this event to make you look like the clown you are
And what players you would take instead?
I was thinking NiKo/YEKINDAR as new entry, great entries with firepower (I would first pick s1mple or ZywOo [I know they are not known commonly as entries but they can play that role, especially ZywOo] but I don't think they would join, ZywOo maybe if they had enough money)
and blameF/nexa as new IGL, smart IGLs with firepower
F0ze clan is fine grandma rain and grandpa karrigan are doing a good job
In a year or two both will leave faze, just that they will wait and prepare a replacement
faze don't need changes as long as they consistently top 5 team
if they fall off then make roster change, teams always try to be nr1 and if it don't work, replace and replace again
that is stupid and leads to worse performance overall
Broky was a bot all series but blame Rain who plays entry
-rain +es3tag but keep everyone in the belief that he's just a stand-in
konfig was free to take instead of rain :)
Karrigan does make very very high level calls idk what they should change
i think Faze are good right now . I hope in 1 or 2 years i see -rain +stavn
bro rain is basically Niko level in a lot of positions, he's playing some of the hardest roles, star roles, because he's that good. I think the main reason Faze hasn't been able to keep up is Broky, unfortunately. Look at top contenders: Navi, G2, Vitality, Liquid, Cloud9, Outsiders they all have star awpers (Osee is a low tier star awper like Broky). Even some lesser teams have star awpers, impacftul players that take space and dictate the pace of their teams, like OG, Mouz, Ence, Big,
Broky, as good as he's been on Faze, is closer to that second tier of awpers than Shiro Zywoo S1mple. That's what's been lacking for Faze,
XANTARES is already waiting, he'll make FaZe great again
FaZe is still a top 3 team and can take any trophy, honestly you are all stupid for basing your opinions on particular games like this, most tier 1 matches are a coin flip these days
Yeah, they looked great in the first half of 2022, but have dropped off after the player break.
Karrigan and Rain are too old to have the energy to stay consistently performing.
I think it's mostly Rain though, Karrigan is an unrivalled IGL.
But if they can get a player like Yekindar to replace Rain, and maybe an IGL like ALEX or TabseN to replace Karrigan, they'd certainly do better than if they only replace Rain.
hltv users would unironically say +s1mple +Niko +axile +monesy +Zywoo
bro Faze lost 3 out of their 12 last matches, two of those were against G2 (literally the best team in the world at the moment), and 3/4 maps played against them went into the long run, and the other match lost was against Heroic in the final of Blast, which was a really close game overall, when Heroic was in top form. There is nothing to change, there is like two teams that can beat Faze right now and they cant do it easily, matches in their level are being decided on small things that cant be controlled
with the way the faze org is going, doubt they'll be around for long regardless
! month into a new season lol anyone who suggests a change is insane... do any of you watch CS?????????????????????????????????????? There is NO ONE better out there right now that they can get... you all think it's possible to obtain any player lol. Joke.
rain literally is the major mvp and played better than broky today, rain very rarely is the worst or even the 2nd last on the server
I mean it's one loss to G2 which is in insane form, I don't think this tells much of a story. Still if they don't win this or EPL maybe it's time for rain to dedicate himself to fatherhood and for FaZe to bring in someone like frozen
Broky never was star awp material always choking in big tournaments
-rain +frozen would fit perfect
I think G2 win katowice easily with 3-0 against vitality
without karrigan they arent much. rain for konfig would work. rain and broky for s1mple and electronic would be cool
FaZe: +s1mple +ZywOo ez 7 majors
There is absolutely no need for change in FaZe right now. There is more competition now, though, because G2 are in terrific shape as well as Heroic and Vitality. Also, Liquid, C9 and OG can kick ass occasionally. And let's not forget about NaVi. Just because your favourite team doesn't win every single game or tournament doesn't mean they need to revamp the whole roster.
if karrigan leave Ropz could become IGL
get zywoo pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeee
I always laugh a lot when I see people thinking k0nfig or something is better than rain lmao
Rain carried them last map so no hes also the goat
1 more major for rain
faze can still bounce back. ihc, liquid, spirit are all easy-ish
Look at Rain roles first of all ! When entering a site, he is right in front of the pack and that is why his death numbers are more.
Also, on Nuke, He bested Niko (the so called best outside player on Nuke) so many times and yet he is the problem.
KarriBOT did nothing in terms of fragging at all and he was so extremely poor and guess what .. Faze had problems because of THAT.
And we all saw, how many 4v2's (even a 5v2 on Ancient) Faze lost vs G2. That just isn't allowed.
hltv analysts after 1 loss to the strongest team right now:
It would be very strong. However I dont think that it will happen
yall talk like FaZe was a bad team
they’ve been a solid Top 3 team for more than a year
Don't understimate Karrigan and rain, they are an absolute beast. Yes Twistzz, ropz and Broky are fraggers but every team needs other roles too, is just not the best moment for them, but I would not make any changes.
es3tag is right there xdd
The posts in this thread seem to be even dumber than those in the Trump video thread. Unbelievable.
Faze struggled against a perfect form G2 and suddently needs to chage...
Rain shat on niko on Nuke... Karrigan is there for the brain and not for the fragging...
i'm a G2 fan but i don't think G2 wins agains this Faze 100% of the time
they dont need changes, they are all good players who are playing good currently its just that g2 is above everyone else individually right now
lalo u died in season 6 wtf
Oh no the - Kariggan threads have started, who are you gonna blame next when it happens and Niko is not around to take the blame
+xantares + woxic
broky on rifle
I thought the Obvious choice would be -Rain +Frozen
There is chance for changes to happen if they fail to close out IGS. But would Faze go for it, considering their financial situation and stuff.
Calm down - not even out of the tournament, and losing to in form team (G2) right now. No shame in that, and you talk about who to replace.
No change is needed, and furthermore nothing will happen before FaZe ether win the Intel Grand Slam or the last 3. event chances for achieving this is over with.
thats not correct.
How tf would u except an igl to frag as much as the star players on a team? They have the star player role because they are the ones to frag, they are the ones who need to carry because this is how the star role works. And then u have the igl role that demands the player to have focus on all zones of the map, in all of his players, in how the round flows. Being an igl requires a lot of focus in a lot of other aspects than your aiming and performance and thats why an igl, normally, failes to frag because they dont need to.
This all to prove that karrigan, the igl, is not the problem, faze won 4 of the biggest events with karrigan calling because he is a good caller and has prove that a lot of times.
Now lets talk about rain. Rain is not demmanded to be the star player and always having 30+ kills, as i said, that role as already been given to players like twistzz ropz and broky who are the 3 carries of faze. Rain role is toi provide space on the map, because he is the entry, to allow the 3 star players to shine and he does that very often. Besides that rain contributes a lot on faze t side with openings and thats his funcion on t-side. Then we have the ct-side where rain shines and has a lot of impact controlling areas on the map. Example of that is on nuke where he controles the whole outside area by himself and does a pretty good job.~
Personally, as a faze fan, i think that the problem is that we sometimes get out played by the other team, and thats one of the things we need to focus on. Also we lost a lot of 4v5's or something because someone is caught of guard. And then we lose a lot of rounds that we are not suposed to like ecos or semi buys and forces with deagles.
Overall i think faze is a solid team but they make some mistakes that they shouldnt expecially on the t-side, this side is certainly our weakness and we have to improve on that but i dont think that changing the team now is the better solution
they need to replace rain with yekindar this year, while karrigan is still igling. even if they win everything this year (which they won't, g2 will), -rain +yekindar. it's the best choice for the future of the team.
ffs the shitty "FaZe fix" threads are back
can't wait for user to pretend FaZe can get valuable players from other teams, or pick up dogshit free agents
only Robban who now ?
probably 6 bad month ot 12 month good month iwthout trophys
They don’t need any changes, they’ve already shown what this lineup is capable of . What they need is to practice more and fix their stupid mistakes, such as not checking corners, poor utility use, bad teamplay (not trading eachother, peeking awp one by one).
karrigan is the reason they all have the space to succeed individually. Their success was (in part, no props taken from the amazing calling and great teamplay) due to rain finding his best form for half a year and broky overperforming, now they kinda struggle because they both fell off a bit. Learn from mistakes, karrigan is NOT the problem. They might just need a mental reset. RobbaN is also amazing and heavily underrated.
i dont think they will replace Rain in the first.
Karrigan is on his last rodeo this year i think.. old man and time for him to coach i guess. his brain is BIG stuff.. but its easy to see he gets older.
Rain have a lot in his personal life.. the fact that he is now a New father will force him to change focus to the kid now in the begninning.
Ropz are GOOD and i think he will Stay if he wants
Brooky are on and off. but when he is ON he is better than any player. and when he is of. well..
i think he needs more time to be the best version he can be .. just se how much he have grown as a pro player in Faze! but still a rooky many times. more a experience thing.
The canadinan Gold star. are just insane and its so fun to see how much he have prooven himself in faze.
so my best guess are that they are on a lookout for a new IGL.. but i will take time.. cuz the best ones are taken..
probably -rain next year if he doesnt perform. otherwise no changes
No changes incoming.......team is good.They just make a lot of mistakes
You are really smoking that good good. Why the fuck would they make changes when they are 1 win away from a grand slam.
+GuardiaN - broky
ropz twistzz and karrigan are staying 100%. rain is inconsistent compared to ropz and twistzz. karrigan is the best igl itw. mfs in the post seriously thinks just because statswise he cant keep up with the team they might replace karrigan lmfao. they made that mistake years ago and faze literally became tier 2 team while he was winning trophies with the rookie nonamers so even thinking about is ridiculous. lets say org give the green light for it, twistzz and ropz would left the team the second their contract expires because karrigan is the only reason why they choose faze clan in the first place and they are pretty much in love with the guy. idk when will that happen but if it happens first roster move will be either rain or broky. i believe they might wanna go for rain because of the age or rain might take a break for a couple months because of his newborn child.
karrigan need to find a receiver
So if we presume
tabseN very unlikely...
who literally can still defend karrigan?
I can already tell they lose even to liquid, because for example karrigan try win every round no matter how bad position his team is, even try win rounds when they have no kits and time like 15 seconds and no idea where opponents are and no nades and they do that same all the time again
and some kids think karrigan is great igl...
no point even watch, luckily my new favorite team G2 is successful
faze lose tooo many eco rounds
i feel like rain might take a break as the team is not preforming well and he just had a baby.
-broky +sunpayus -rain +?
the era of Faze has been sponsored by the Ukrainian war
Change out Rain and broky. Or put broky as an entry and try that and get Zywoo to awp. Bot twizzt and rips are good with awp also.
So i would keep karrigan for 2023 and also 2024 then he needs to step down also.
Replacing Rain isn't easy beacuse they have awsome chemistry and he is a solid player when performs.
But as much I love faze since day one plz make some changes and take back your well deserved Nr1 spot again.
-rain +jeorgesnorts (UP AND COMING GOD)
For good measure:
-twists +Zywoo (2 awp setup and twists can come save complexity)
if -karrigan + mezii but i would keep karrigan
there will be changes after all three ramaining chances to win the grand slam expire, but not until, cause rebuilding takes time, that is crucial, given that schedule seems tight for the season esl troohies wise
I don't think any change is necessary. It's really hard to build the kind of team chemistry that faze have. It's not broke then don't fix it. It may not be optimal but every good team has had at sone point issues in winning out the key moments. All the matches faze have lost in the last 7 months have been the do Or die matches and maybe some sort of sports psychologist or addrnl. Coach like how G2 has one can help faze too.
The team has had players who went from not having majors, colognes, katowices to having it all and tbh most pros in the scene if asked today would be happy to retire with only some of these. So if the problem is that their asses not on fire to win then yes the coach/ karrigan should make changes.
Typical lalo salamanca thread
Bruh karrigan is the best igl as of today. Replace him with any igl and faze goes to rank 20
My question is why do you want FaZe to be successful? By them winning tournaments, they are putting money into the org who are using that money to fund more scams
Faze trust rain too much, they’re not gonna toss him aside anytime soon
if there's any change to be made it can't really be rain, the guys is an anchor and entry and he's one of the best in doing so right now. Yekindar, frozen do not play the same roles as him, only one I can think of is brollan but rain is better than him atm.
I get -Rain, but i dont get -Karrigan.
-rain -broky(to liquid)
