cromen to stand in for FaZe at ESL One Cologne

Jorgen "⁠cromen⁠" Robertsen will continue to stand in for FaZe at ESL One Cologne, the organization has confirmed on Twitter.

The $300,000 event will be cromen's third tournament with FaZe, whom he helped place third-fourth at ECS Season 5 Finals and clinch the title at ESL One Belo Horizonte.

In Cologne, the European squad will attempt to claim the $1,000,000 Intel Grand Slam prize, as they've currently got three titles from the last eight tournaments of the circuit under their belts.

cromen will play his third tournament with FaZe in Cologne

FaZe have been placed in Group B alongside the likes of Liquid, fnatic, and MIBR. In their first match, Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen & co. will face BOOT-d[S] in a best-of-one setting.

FaZe's lineup at ESL One Cologne will once again be:

Denmark Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen
Bosnia and Herzegovina Nikola "⁠NiKo⁠" Kovač
Norway Håvard "⁠rain⁠" Nygaard
Slovakia Ladislav "⁠GuardiaN⁠" Kovács
Norway Jorgen "⁠cromen⁠" Robertsen

Ye it's too long. I'm a huge olof fan but at this point you have to replace and get a full-time player. Or atleast get a true time frame from olof and then sign a player under a contract for that period. It's like he's giving them no time and they are just going tourney by tourney hoping he comes back. It's bullshit for us fans. Keeping us in the dark. That's bullshit.

team is looking for a better player than cromen in the meantime, most likely olof has a big buyout clause and is always "close" to coming back so faze is put in a weird position.

Didn't FaZe buy Olof out of fnatic for 20k$? How is that high buyout
2018-06-29 12:50
1 reply
depends on how the contract is structured and timing. Not sure how much olof was bought for but that could be a set price from when he first joined. Current reports put NBK at 6 figures for his buyout and it is possible the contract that olof has could also have a clause where if the team removes him he has guaranteed money/severance. Not to mention team chemistry may be in consideration so they could be very anxious if they kick olof and pick someone up and they have bad chemistry and they just wasted a bunch of money on kicking olof.

2018-06-28 23:13
Great choice, Cromen played great. With some more experience he can become a top 10-15 player imo. If they win the Grand Slam Cromen should get the money as he won the most tournaments ;)

okay, calm down he is doing good but not top 10-15 lol
2018-06-28 23:32
I'm very happy for Cromen as this would increase his impressive growing résumé even further.

If they won the million, will cromen have a bite? And xzit? And ollof? How does it works in this case?

Cromen will replace oloff places. Sure that now he's dedicating some good time praticing to keep this spot on Faze
2018-06-28 23:49
What's going on with olof? Does he have some health issues?

I think it's time to let olof go, this is getting too long
2018-06-29 00:00
Its time Olof retires considering his recent stats. Cromen unexpectedly has done a much better job of keeping Faze at the top.

Maybe in the end FaZe don’t need another big name player to sign, seems like the team clicks just right with cromen
2018-06-29 05:19
im 100% olof already left faze faze are trying to sign NBK, this why cromen is standing in, not because they are waiting for olof to comeback
2018-06-29 05:24
Good for him. He’s doing a really great job and fitting in quite nicely. Maybe he'll stay if olof can't return, but if not then he'll easily get picked up by another great team.
2018-06-29 05:52
no one here is a friend of olof? and knows the real reason?
2018-06-29 06:32
Good luck cromen!

2018-06-29 09:00
They became runner-up 2 times (ELEAGUE Major and IEM Katowice) in this year with the official line up, and won 2 events with stand-in. Despite loving Olof but maybe he's not destined to Faze.
2018-06-29 08:53
just sign cromen already.
