RobbaN: "Heart for the game is back"

We managed to get a hold of Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström in between FaZe's matches to talk about him coming back to Counter-Strike after quitting in the late days of 1.6 and joining up with FaZe.

Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström is a persona any Counter-Strike 1.6 fan should know well, as he had a seven-year long career in teams such as Begrip, Ninjas in Pyjamas and SK Gaming, which was his last home before he quit during the switch to CS:GO.

Since then we haven't heard much about the Swede, which is why we decided to interview him to see what his life has been like since quitting and what made him come back.

RobbaN also explained how he has been getting used to a new game, how his leading style has changed, and of course, FaZe's results in Katowice so far.

RobbaN <3

The ones who say "who?" etc should just stop. He played for Begrip, NiP and SK etc. And imo one of the best IGLS in 1.6 when it came to call in midrounds etc. RobbaN was never a guy that had every set-strat and they needed to that or that all the time. That was the big difference between cArn, Zeus and RobbaN for example. RobbaN did almost only make calls from the round, and not have that much set-strats. While Zeus and cArn was really much about set-strats. RobbaN's last team in 1.6 was with f0rest, GeT_RiGhT, Delpan and face. And they did make kinda a record if you looked at map stats wins in a row without losing a single map. Kinda like NiP, only that SK's record was in maps. And it was kinda like 41-0 in maps before they lost their first map, that is the record in 1.6 in winning maps in a row without losing one.
2016-03-03 20:28
NiP's record was in maps? ????
2016-03-03 20:38
Oh, You are right. I messed that up, was 41-0 wins for SK, not sure about if it was 41 wins, but somewhere around there. Maps was for NiP, Wins for SK in 1.6. Thanks for your correction :)

No. RobbaN's prime time was 2006-2007 and then 2011-2012 in SK.
