It may be siuhy, karrigan has big praises to him, he clearly thinks he can become one of the best IGL and maybe he can coach siuhy himself if he decides to become a coach
Rain has an almost 1.1 rating, just a bit below Twistzz and Ropz, and was MVP on the Antwerp major... Calling him washed is delusional. He's been through every iteration of FaZe over the past 6 years, and is not only one of the most solid riflers around, his experience and decision-making are echelons above other players of like skill, and has adapted to every line up, making him supremely versatile (minus awp). His play hasn't declined, and he still looks good in this lineup. He anchors sometimes on the lesser site, so his stats aren't as high as the other players, But when he's pushed he can frequently confirm multi kills.
There's nothing else to talk about. I don't think this team needs to make roster changes right now. They just need Karrigan in the firing range, and they need to stop saying this is the FaZe era, check their ego's, and put the work in like everyone else. It looks to me they haven't changed much since their run last year, and need to update their maps.
I don't think FaZe is even considering replacing Karrigan right now as it would make their current Grand Slam status ineligible.
Anyone replying to this thread actually wanting to replace karrigan is delusional
He already did win a trophy at this age. I suspect they'll just keep him for a couple of years
Broky already does some calling, so he might be the next t1 IGL awper. Who knows.
you're really delusional if you think karrigan/rain are the issue.
rain is doing really good job, and so is karrigan. their issue is not a tactical issue, and not really a lack of fire power, they just lack that little chemistry to manage to win these rounds that they just should win.
losing too many Xvs4, Xvs5, Xvs3, you can't take every clutch but they should convert MUCH more number advantage rounds.
they also have to stop losing against eco rounds which happens wayyy too much, and again it happens because lack of chemistry, they just fall somehow 1 by 1 instead of doing trade frags.
it honestly feels like faze needs to play some retakes, as they used to in the past to get that little lack of chemistry back, a bit more communication, a bit more trade frags, they REALLY lack trade frags,
they don't have aim issues or tactical depth issues, and they don't need any roster changes atm.
I think this way that syrson said GG and BIG will go international, maybe tabsen will accept faze. I'd really like a +tabseN and +XANTARES even though FaZe is broke ask I think xantares is not that much money but considering he is 27 already (wtf) they probably wont buy him. But I don't think it's a good idea to replace 2 at a time. I think rain is not that bad it's the rounds that are bad now. calls are not working out for a long time. Maybe karrigan should finish at the top. I really really love him and I don't want him to be kicked, it would be better if he steps down by himself or make a brand new playbook because faze is painful to watch nowadays.
I think by the time that karrigan leaves Faze, tabsen will be ready to give up on the german scene and join Faze.
I think karrigan still got a year or two but when it eventually comes to that tabseN would make the most sense imo. I hope FaZe can finish the grand slam before that so karrigan also gets to win that.
-Rain is a fortnite faze fan level take. if you claim to know anything about CS youll know rain is near irreplaceable in the sense that he does all the shit jobs so the 3 key players can shine along with the shit jobs he also does the roles that are star player for their difficulty (outside nuke, jaguar ancient for example).
Think before talking, im aware a lot of people have had similar opinions but they've got room temp IQ and are clearly not to be trusted.
As for Carrygan im not sure who the replacement would be, i like siuhy but i dont think hes ready it would take faze a long time to be S tier again which they dont want. id give him until the end of the grand slam (IEM brazil, dallas and pro league i think) then make a decision.
Also seeing people talk about broky calling sometimes but cmon guys put 2 and 2 together for once hes an awper if the awper doesnt call his own opening sometimes you end up with sysron aka MIA.
Faze will probably have to gamble due to the options not meeting their requirements; T1, won titles, can call in English etc. I felt like gla1ve could replace him but I don't think he's interested in calling for an international roster plus he seems committed to Astralis and vice versa. Guys like siuhy will be a gamble and options like Aleksi and nexa feel like gambles at this point. I wish Tabsen would give it a shot but he also seems committed to the german scene in general
If you ain't going to make a tldr, at least make your text better to read. Add some paragraphs and punctuation.
Karrigan is still fine, don't need a replacement, and if he needs, the best pick in my opinion would be Dexter (who is familiar with rope).
Twistzz will become IGL and they will get a young prospect like frozen is my prediction :D while karrigan will remain as coach
NiKo IGL + AWP + Coach + GM
AZR will be replacing him, return of the king.
If Karrigan didn't want to be IGL anymore, id keep his salary the same and make him coach, then sign Boombl4 for IGL because why the fuck not it'll probably work
if karrigan is the coach he can make any igl work I'd say with enough time.
Similar to how blad3 made gold from nothing with boombl4
I think if karrigan leave, Rain will too. They should rebuild the team.
regardless of the fact that is a Serb, I think Nexa is getting better IGL in OG but i cant see in faze
+frozen on rain's role
rain IGL and karrigan's role
Your title is TLDR, thanks for that. IDC tho.
I think siuhy gets heavily overrated.
nothing to discuss lol, they will play out at least this season with this roster (idk about rain, if he wants to continue playing, he seems unbothered, but plays very good), they will try to get grand slam with karrigan, if they fail, he might retire (i think he might retire after this season even if they win as he said in interview he does not know if he will play 1 more katowice)
they could have twistzz/broky igl, they do play smarter than karrigan after all. karrigan's simply overrated both as a player and igl
karrigan is just a igl, nothing special! Dont know why he gets so hyped by his fans ...
"karrigan you cant replace such a genius" so why would they replace him?
Why would HooXi downgrade lol
Faze should try Niko as IGL. I can't recall exactly but he tried himself as an IGL in a team a few years ago and I believe he was best as an IGL. Also if possible, he should take AWP from Broky as well because he was the best AWPer when he tried AWP a few years ago in a team I recall exactly.
Jame Fl1t and Fame replace Karrigan Broky Rain
hampus, suishy tabsen or nexa.
I agree there arent any available who would fit well enough to replace karrigan.
perhaps blameF igl together with device make broky rifle again.
hampus or tabsen would be my pick.
No one would be better in his role
i like your post my serbian brother yes i agree new IGL needed plus grandma rain is washed, best option will be - Dexter from Mouz very agressive and players around him are good so it can work or Staehr new young danish blood as plan B
Maybe tabseN,syrsoN's already left maybe he will leave and get what he actually deserves.
He really is a great IGL,as far as I know he can speak english very well.And also he can frag ffs.
i've been waiting for faze gla1ve since 2018
I could honestly see Twistzz IGL
my man ZTR is gonna be the new FaZe igl. Hampus can do it as well
