karrigan joins FaZe

Professeur
October 19th, 2016 19:48

The transfer of the former Astralis in-game leader Finn "karrigan" Andersen to FaZe has been confirmed, with the Dane set to take part in the ELEAGUE Season 2 group stage with his new team later this week. Andersen will be replacing Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey.

Just a week after the announcement of Astralis benching Finn "karrigan" Andersen being released, the loudly rumored news that the Danish caller will be moving to FaZe in place of Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey.

With this move, the roster will finish the transition from a fully international line-up to a Nordic one, and more importantly, FaZe will get the much-needed guidance in terms of leading the squad.


karrigan's move to FaZe could help them move over the group stage hump 

The new FaZe line-up won't have a lot of time to prepare however, as they will debut at LAN in just two days - in the ELEAGUE Season 2 group stage where they will face mousesports, Immortals and Cloud9.

This is what karrigan had to say about the move in the official statement:

Today I’m starting a new chapter in my CS:GO career. I’m changing from Astralis to FaZe after nearly 2 years with the core players from Astralis. It has been an amazing time with many ups and downs, especially in 2015, which was a great year for us. We also took a big decision to start our own organization, which has been a life experience and a very interesting thing to do.
“It’s with mixed feelings that I depart from Astralis, but I think it’s a fresh start for both parties. I have had many good moments and these are the ones I’m taking with me in the future.The reason for this change is that in the past few months we haven’t been performing to our expectations, which led to different discussions on how to approach the tactical aspect of the game. We came to an agreed conclusion that it was for the best that our paths now split up and I wish the best in the future for Astralis. I hope they will find their way back to the top.
“I’m also very happy and honoured to have the opportunity to start another chapter with a brand like FaZe. They have a very unique brand, a big fan base and a very talented team, which I hope I can bring to the top where they belong.I want to thank all the Astralis fans, the players and the hardworking guys behind the team for my time with them.”

Faze the team where pros go to die after they are kicked off good teams. Rest in pieces Allu, Kio, and now Karrigan.
2016-10-19 20:04
Ence good xddddddddd astralis good xdddddddddddddddddd. sure why not.
2016-10-19 20:05
Astralis used to be a top 3 team in the world back when they were TSM and Allu used to be in NIP, so I was talking about that. EnVyUs wasn't good either when Kio was kicked out. The point is they all used to be on top 3-5 teams in the world and now they are on Faze.
2016-10-19 20:15
Bc if they had a guy like karrigan before, they would have been a much better team. They hadn't have a igl in the last 2 years almost lol

2016-10-20 17:08
You're retarded if you thinks that Astralis has never been good. 5 titles in 2015, lots of finals, semi finals @ major and shit... But yeah, they're definitely bad :)
2016-10-19 20:30
that is the main thing. They WERE good.

That was back when they were actually a good team. They started to take a turn for the worse once Dennis left and Scream left before Dennis.

no no no.. na is place where pros go to die..
2016-10-19 22:58
yeah cause s1mple died in NA... He took his team to the finals of Cologne (and nearly the finals of Columbus as well). Now he is having huge success in NaVi. Mixwell and Pimp are also having a fair amount of success in their teams.

They wont talk danish or swedish as long as they have Allu. It would be a long strech for the danes AND the norwegians to start talking swedish with no swedish speaking people. Allu doesnt speak proper swedish either, as we noticed with the NiP-Allu episode.

Allus not fluent in finnish-swedish either... But i think it would be easier for Danes to understand muumi-swedish, as its pronounced more clearly... Real swedish is a bit more flow'ier. :) Danish sounds like arabic with some familiar words, so yea i doubt allu would understand that.

I think in this case they meant the group stage being a big obstacle. So may be hump is right.

This is the best roster that FaZe has ever fielded. -fox +allu was absolutely an upgrade, don't care about what allu haters/fox lovers have to say. -Maikelele +karrigan was an even bigger upgrade. The expectations for FaZe to succeed is only going to increase but I think now more than ever they are prepared to live up to it.

not very confident about this move karrigan was once a good IGL but I feel like he isn't anymore and jkaem, the worst one, didnt get dropped

lets be real, if jkaem plays in a good system he has a lot more potential then kio

2016-10-19 21:16
mixed feelings :/ FaZe needed a good IGL especially after the new coach rule, but i'm sad to see Kio go. i've always liked him a lot. Also the team was doing allright since allu joined :<
2016-10-19 21:19
when allu leave this will be one of the top teams.

Karrigan is pretty bad, 2 start callers and not having an explosive player like kio will bring faze down
2016-10-19 22:06
+1111 faze will drop even more ratings now. they all will say "just need more time" but thats not the case kio opened sites alone and had a huge clutch potential. horrible mistake.

Well, i thought about it and finnish people learns swedish in school and allu played for nip in 2k15 so he might understand then. This will help the teams communication!
2016-10-20 07:34
nah they will be speaking english. allu doesnt understand. and danish and swedish are so different anyway.

Danes and norweigans understand each other well. And they are 2 norweigans and 2 danes. Allu understands Swedish and it isnt that kind of huge difference between Swedish and norweigan etc. This will allow them to have better Communication. ALlu will probably speak English tho.

2016-10-19 22:59

2016-10-19 23:00
faze will drop even more ratings now. they all will say "just need more time" but thats not the case kio opened sites alone and had a huge clutch potential. horrible mistake.
2016-10-19 23:03
lol they all opens sites alone though, even karrigan sometimes. faze obviously need better structure and some tactics, and it is so stupid to call it a horrible mistake before they´ve played their first match together lul
2016-10-19 23:08
can norwergians understand danish or vice versa? im getting mixed answers.

We can call them the Penis team now. They come from Penis of Europe and since some people don't count Finland as Scandinavia we gotta settle for replacement terminology.

FaZe is like a retirement community/career graveyard for players with nowhere else to go lol
2016-10-19 23:22
yeah,totally rain - fnatic wants him for years allu - left nip,rejected liquid aizy - could probably replace someone on dig if he wanted to

2016-10-19 23:34
Ok, now we are talking. They can be a top team right now with karrigan as IGL. GL

Not sure if serious, jkaem and aizy have better mechanical skill than k0nfig and rubino at the moment, plus it would destroy Dignitas.
2016-10-20 02:08
you can't be serious, Rubino performed exceptionally well in WESG with Jkaem and Aizy, K0nfig is a better play than Jkaem and aizy, having karrigan,rain,rubino & k0nfig is the best FaZe could ask for, maybe Cajunb for allu aswell.
2016-10-20 05:42
k1o to NA confirmed
2016-10-20 01:37
1) TL offers him a spot 2) top frags on TL and leads them to a major semi-final 3) after 6 months NV/G2 offers him a spot 4) he leaves TL 5) TL sucks once again
2016-10-20 02:05
Probably could work on NRG or Spylce but no good NA team is going to want someone as bad as Kio.

Why did they decide to kick Kioshima in first place? I mean it's ok to choose karrigan as substitue, buy why to kick somebody at all? Was there any particular reason? they were doing really good actually lately... so why did they need change?
