karrigan joins FaZe

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 MOUZ, 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.”

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.

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.

allu ofc karrigan 2nd awp
2016-10-19 22:11
Karrigan is pretty bad, 2 start callers and not having an explosive player like kio will bring faze down

+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!

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.

Not sure if serious, jkaem and aizy have better mechanical skill than k0nfig and rubino at the moment, plus it would destroy Dignitas.

1 reply
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.

Probably could work on NRG or Spylce but no good NA team is going to want someone as bad as Kio.

Now FaZe is full scandinavian. Maybe this will help the team chemistry? However picking up karrigan was a good decision because they did not have any strats after dennis left.

2016-10-22 21:29
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?
