MIRAA
February 12th, 2017 00:09

FaZe backup member Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad will be the team's fifth member at DreamHack Masters Las Vegas, HLTV.org has learned.

Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad has been on FaZe's bench since November, when Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey was moved back to the starting lineup, and was seen playing for the team in the ESL Pro League earlier in the week.

He will step into the shoes of Philip "aizy" Aistrup, who has signed for North, as FaZe's newest recruit, Nikola "NiKo" Kovač, will play one last tournament for mousesports - DreamHack Masters Las Vegas - before switching teams.


jkaem will play for FaZe in Las Vegas

FaZe have been drawn in Group D of the $450,000 tournament, along with Natus Vincere, mousesports and Renegades, with their first match pitting them against the Australians.

This means that FaZe will attend the event with:

Denmark Finn "karrigan" Andersen
France Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey
Finland Aleksi "allu" Jalli
Norway Håvard "rain" Nygaard
Norway Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad

He's not as omfgbbqjkaemsuxxx bad as people make out to be. For much of the previous lineup, fox+aizy was the liability if anything.
2017-02-12 00:34
If FaZe vs Mouz ever happens in DH Las Vegas, I bet on FaZe. Niko will play for FaZe. After DH Las Vegas. Which means Niko will troll to make FaZe win if FaZe vs Mouz ever happens.
2017-02-12 00:37
They are professionals and that is a childish thought.

Yea, but they weren't that good at that time.. Kio has been huge for them, aswell as karrigan ofc

I just feel Jkaems aim is a little off, from what he used to be like.
2017-02-12 01:53
He is just completely off as a player. Everyone knows that he's a huge talent but he is possibly the most inconsistent talent in the world since he can one game completely dominate and drop like 35 kills and the next two he get get like 4 kills per half, thats not a player that karrigan can rely on in his system.

Thats true, and I really wish he wouldnt be that inconsistent, but thats how it is sometimes. I dont think they will get far in las vegas though, not with JKAEM-

No shit? xD NiKo said that he will play for Mouz at Dreamhack Vegas and after the event he will play with FaZe, that was also in the deal. EDIT: I dont think NiKo will even attend DH Vegas, since ChrisJ is back in Mouz lineup? so mouz is: ChrisJ Denis lowel Spiidi Oskar

Yeah, They should imo, i mean why use a player that signed for another org and probably "dont give a fuck" about Mouz anymore :P EDIT: What i mean with "They should imo" is that they should use ChrisJ :D
2017-02-12 01:53
"don't give a fuck" about the team he has been playing it for a very long time now just because he signed with another team ? don't forget those guys spend so much time together, they are friends and a signature on a contract don't scrape all this

Maybe he should considering he "betrayed" the team for money.
2017-02-12 11:15
He has been loyal to mousesports for a longtime. Betrayed? So no player can change club without betraying their former club?

The problem is with the statement he made earlier and the fact that the statement was a promise. Doesn't matter anymore however.
2017-02-12 11:27
He has been carrying mouse enough. I think every guy involved in mousesports understands that aswell. He deserve going to a bigger team with alot of talent. He didnt knew at that point he was going to FaZe. He just had a wish, and as every time before that has been rejected. He just chose to look bright at the future.

Why would that be awkward? They're all adults and I'd imagine they can handle shit like that without being autistic or maybe I'm wrong, but whatever
2017-02-12 03:36
Yeah but Im pretty sure chemistry and everything will be a lot different.

Why do you ask? As far as I know it is perfectly correct.

'was moved' is a passive in past tense
