FaZe bench karrigan

Finn "karrigan" Andersen has been benched in FaZe and has announced he is seeking opportunities in other organizations.

After a disappointing season in which FaZe fell out of the top 5, albeit briefly, for the first time since September of 2017, the European team has announced that karrigan, their former in-game leader, has been moved to a substitute position.

karrigan will no longer be on FaZe's active lineup

During his time in FaZe, karrigan won seven trophies, including an ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier and several ESL events such as ESL One Belo Horizonte or IEM Sydney, but the team fell off this season with only one victory, at EPICENTER 2018, a few playoffs runs, including a quarter-final exit at the Major, and a group stage flop at ESL One New York 2018.

The move comes somewhat expectedly after rumors of the Dane having one foot and a half out of FaZe came earlier this season when Nikola "NiKo" Kovač took over the in-game leadership of the team.

FaZe's lineup is now:

Bosnia and Herzegovina Nikola "NiKo" Kovač
Sweden Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer
Norway Håvard "rain" Nygaard
Slovakia Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács

Denmark Finn "karrigan" Andersen (substitute)
Sweden Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström (coach)

easy to look good when you just use the same shit your old IGL made. Give it 2 months and you will see how dogshit Niko is at IGL'ing.
2018-12-16 14:09
You fail to get me, IGL role is highly overrated, IGL doesn't have any special responsibilities, mid-round calls, little preparation before the matches and that's basically it. But the thing is that, any player regardless of the role should be playing up to his level and deliver when needed. Most IGLs fail to do so, NiKo never will.
2018-12-16 14:14
"IGL doesnt have any special responsibilities" alright you're actually just trolling lmao,
2018-12-16 14:16
Stop praising mortals. Any player can be a captain in team but no PLAYER in the world should be allowed to suck most of the time. Astralis agrees with me, you might not but I stand corrected.
2018-12-16 14:19
Mainly preparation and knowing what calls to make mid round based of what you’re seeing in game and how it translated to what you studied about your opponent. Very hard to do m8
2018-12-16 14:51
Not really considering it is your occupation and you're not just playing around casually. Especially all the pracs and FPL matches they've gone through. They know everything by default in-game thinking.
2018-12-16 14:52
Fuck off mate seriously, you're dumb as a bat :D Some people have a much higher strategical capability than others.

Must feel great not knowing how wrong you are on the importance of an IGL and how much responsibility they have to help their team win. Being a professional chef isn't even hard, I mean just thaw your meat, cook it in the pan in some spices, and serve it- it's that easy lmao You see how stupid that sounds? That's you.

That sounds stupid because you brought a wrong comparison to this subject. That's just you and no one else. It's not even the most important, what does IGL have to do if he can't be making those frags when needed, in his position and certain time. There is a fucking coach behind them so the IGL's importance in leading and coordinating become invisible but his stats on the board instead, become very so visible. So don't tell me tales I've known before you.

2018-12-18 21:22
Wtf? IGL is the most important role in a team. First of all the igl is the captain because of his personality to take a direction and a leadership in a team. The project itself is build it by the igl most of the time. Then in a map the leader is always making sure everyone is doing their job, etc. He is always watching others monitor setting up all, because the other ones cant do all that plus watching demos/making new strats etc. To be an igl is exhausting and is really tired but that captain have the fire a team needs to make it more competitive and winner. 70% of the success of a team is because of the preparation match, the creative strats and the mid round calls, making good decisions. All that stuff, all the details are by the igl and coach. That's why fallen glaive karrigan zeus are really important in this game.
2018-12-16 16:57
FalleN, gla1ve yes, the rest suck big time. No matter how smart you are, if you can't kill an enemy in game, you're useless for killing enemies is the main objective in this fucking FPS. FPS! Not a strategy or RPG. Stop overrating IGL role, there's a fucking coach for them to help. IGL have to frag or be kicked.
2018-12-16 16:59
Karrigan/zeus won more things than niko in his hole career. Like zeus they are getting older just like taz/neo on vp. Its obvious but igl it's not overrated, clearly you never did that job and surely not in the future.
2018-12-16 17:03
Karrigan/Zeus never won anything. The teams they played for have though. They don't play alone and they have the least impact. I play that game everyday, I watched VODs with POVs and teamspeaks, it's not hard to guess what it's like.

You should take a look at what Gambit achieved before Zeus joined and after he left. Calling others kids is what people do when they don't have a proper argument.
2018-12-16 17:42
I know what they achieved. Stick can shoot once a year as well. He helped them with the morale but the guys felt it, he was the same LEM player like always.
2018-12-16 17:44
He was a leader, someone the players obeyed and trusted. That's what brought them structure. There is more to a team then fragging players. Obviously, everyone should be confident enough to win the fights that come to them.. It's a lot harder though if you're without confidence and can't really build it up playing more taxing roles on the team.
2018-12-16 20:20
Gambit players' flaw if they can't pick up themselves and prepare for the match. They should only blame themselves if they need a babysitter to help them with morale. Zeus happened to be at the right place, at the right time.
2018-12-17 04:06
You've clearly never played on a higher level then MM/faceit pugs. Your opinions are retarded. Why did FaZe recruit a igl if it's a worthless position and they were doing soooo good with 5 aimers? Take your head out of your ass tbh.
2018-12-17 09:47
"Your opinions are retarded". Your English and logic , that's what is retarded. I don't like talking to kids. Goodbye.
2018-12-17 10:04
Dude, come on. You clearly made wrong opinion about IGL role. First you have never been one and second you dont even know what an IGL does ingame nor what it takes to make a strat/plan that suits the whole team before or mid-game. ps: Stick to one topic. You dont need to roast someones English ;)
2018-12-19 11:59
You're already failing straight away. Opinion can't be wrong and secondly, I know what it takes to lead and pre-strat, I've been playing this game for much too long and I heard yours, don't try to make it objective.
2018-12-19 12:01
Well your opinion is nor based on facts or knowledge even thought you spent “many” hours ingame. I dont even understand how you are trying to use such fact as a defense for your opinion on IGL. Doesnt matter if you stend 5000hours ingame if 95% of all mm games you play are with randon players and no roles.

Neither IGL or fragger are tho most important. Both are necessary in a team. You can be a good IGL, but you won't achieve anything without decent players who follow your commands. You can also be a good fragger, but you won't achieve teamplay by not listening to a leader
2018-12-18 12:11
Either low quality bait or low IQ, hard to tell which one
2018-12-16 17:49
Kids tend to take the elder's point of view without even any kind of proof to back it up. I know majority would disagree but before you evolve into thinking for your own self, I'll be talking to a wall. Never dreamed to do so. Bye.

I dont think you realize what an igl does
2018-12-16 21:12
Perhaps not to the fullest but I do realise what an IGL like him does not.
2018-12-17 04:07
An IGL has to have the full picture during the round, he takes in all the info from the players. From what the lurker sais, to utilities used, frags. Take that together with knowing tendencies of the enemy team and calculates what the best move will be. A LEADER! That requires alot of thoughtprocess and will affect your fragging power. Point in case, see how Karrigan OFTEN got multiple kills defending a site, or had great flanks when he wasnt worrying about IGL. All players have their strength. IGL is a VERY important role. Go ahead and belive that IGL role is nothing. If you ever hope to go professional, reality will hit you hard.

That would actually be so good. The reason C9 was so good with Tarik calling is because he had a loose style and lot of firepower to work with, including himself. If he could replicate this in FaZe it would be insane especially with Niko off the igl role.

That doesn't mean he is free. Can't you get it? Free means, that a player is out of contract from a organisation, as far as I know, Tarik is still tied to Immortals/mibr brand.

It was inevitable once the team lost confidence in his leadership. I still think it was a mistake not to replace RobbaN as coach months ago though. He should take more responsibility than Karrigan for all those grand final losses where the team lost their nerve.

2018-12-16 12:23
Why tho. Washed up polish mm players < robban
2018-12-16 12:44
I haven't seen any Robban's impact on new strats and stuff like that. They have been playing the same CS for like 2 years straight. Something has to change
2018-12-16 12:51
How would adding either from the 2 worst igls in the last 2.5 yrs help? First taz turned vp to shit dive and then neo kept that going. Neither showed any new school -astralis like- cs in their playstyle
2018-12-16 21:12
in that way anyone from big is sufficient they can get legija or kakafu or maybe gob b if he is retiring and let tabsen be the igl
2018-12-19 04:18
Id argue anybody from big is a better choice than neo or taz yes

Possibly, but NiKo is already a really good secondary AWP. The main reason for wanting MSL is for his leading, with the 4 remaining players, firepower shouldn't be an issue even if he got no kills every match.

Possibly, but I hope not. NiKo is an ok IGL and has somewhat of his own unique style and read on the game but I doubt he can keep doing that in the long term because we'd just end up with another NiKosports. MSL is probably the best option they have a chance of getting.

There is literally no chance at all of MSL being picked up. He can't fear for shit and is a downgrade from Karrigan in terms of experience. I'd say ChrisJ is more likely if they purely want an IGL who can frag, Ange1 being the other option. If NiKo keeps leading then they have masses of good options available.

:( I hope they find someone good. Karrigan did so much for them.
2018-12-16 11:43
He's the most overrated igl leader of all time in cs. He flat out sucks skillwise, and brings nothing to the table. You guys think he did so much for faze because faze were winning during their honeymoon period. But realistically, how much work does one have to do with Niko, Guardian, Rain, and fucking Olofmeister on their team? He has always been too cocky for his own good, and serves him right straight up. He should be on an all time garbage team with MSL, TACO, JW, SmithZ, and ex6 as their headcoach. If he has even a modicum of self-awareness he should try and get into analytics, and stop tanking players prime time careers and ruining teams. /endrant
2018-12-16 11:54
Yes you seem to have a very unbiased opinion. Richard Lewis, Thorin, Sean G@res, Fallen, they all say that Karrigan is and was one of the best igls if you need to turn a game around. All of their opionins of Karrigan are obviously wrong. You, the godtier analyst, seem to have all the answers
2018-12-16 11:57

2018-12-16 12:06
I've played and watched CS longer than every name you just mentioned. I can even tell you karrigan got popular and made a name for himself on the scene from a frag highlight in Ruination. There's a reason he consistently gets dropped by teams, for those teams to later find far more success without him. This is a fact, with no room for interpretation. Just because twat fanboys like you think they know what they're talking about doesn't actually make it so. Go ask Thorin on twitter if he still thinks Karrigan is a good igl. Also completely ignore the fact a lot of the names you mentioned are friends with him outside the game. Lastly search up the definition of bias, since you're evidently unaware, and worse yet ironically guilty.
2018-12-16 12:27
I can guarantee that you haven't played or watched CS longer than Thorin. So shut up.
2018-12-16 14:21
Lmao and how would you guarantee that? I first played this game in 1.1 when half-life deathmatch was the hotter MOD than cs. Started playing this game a lot right after 1.3 came out as most old school cs players. That could only be shocking to Newfags such as yourself. When Thorin first started casting he was the biggest scrub, his analysis was straight up cringe worthy and often times the polar opposite of what he was saying. Just a nobody casting games on vent, before eventually getting enough experience to have a worthwhile opinion. Till this day he still blows at CS, which is fine, as you don't need to be good at something to have a knowledgeable opinion. But let's not pretend his semantics are somehow more worthwhile.
2018-12-16 16:54
Y I K E S btw, HL-Deathmatch was never more popular than CS, not even in the BETAs.
2018-12-16 18:43
People went to internet cafes to play dm shooters, cs seemed complex and uninteresting due to down time. Cs didn't take off until right before 1.3. I have no idea why a bunch of teenagers keep calling me out like they know better when they were in their diapers when this game came out. Fuck off
2018-12-16 23:45
The downloads for the CS BETAs crashed numerous sites while there was barely any HLDM servers on WON. You clearly haven't got a single clue on the subject. HLDM was a rather popular, yeah. But it doesn't even come close to the explosive popularity of CS, not in the official releases nor the BETAs. Even Sven Co-op had more concurrent players.
2018-12-17 00:19
lmao, back then years later sites crashed for downloading cs movies at the rate of 1k dls per 12 hours. Ftps aren't what they were now. Like what the fuck am I even arguing now, when did you start playing cs? If you're Danish, your country and Sweden are legit the 2 foundations of where cs started to grow. Cs wasn't nearly what it was there in other places over around the world. I lived at cis at the time shortly moving to NA. And I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt youre full of shit. Growing up in elementary school even when cs started to take off kids only talked about tf back then. Nice to voice your opinion and bring up won (which literally everyone knows cs was ran on back then) to try n sound more educated on the topic. Here's a question for you. Who were the 2 allstar awpers in 1.1 (not 1.3) . One played for mouz the other for 3D? Let's fact check your wiseass
2018-12-17 00:24
CS movies? There barely was any in the beginning. The big surge of fragmovies didn't happen until after Steam when Sony Vegas became mainstream. I was obviously speaking about the games in general, not by my impressions. Doesn't exactly take a genius to browse servers and amount of players in-game or on numerous tracking sites. 1. I don't give a single shit whether you believe me or not. 2. Knowing about the player counts at that times DOES NOT mean that I necessarily followed the pro scene at the time.. you are seriously deluded if you think that's even a valid argument. The only team I really heard about back then was the best Danish team, which was Dynamic Crew. The awper was torM.. apart from obviously hearing about HeatoN and potti. But I guess you are referring to ksharp and Johnny R.? Even IF you knew more about me about the pro scene and the game itself, which I seriously doubt given your childish tone and behavior, it doesn't make you right about the subject of discussion which has nothing to do with the pathetic dick measurement you're trying to do.
2018-12-17 02:06
s1ckness/moyni and johnnyR You're being overly condescending and hypocritical in your statements champ. You took the time to attack me based on my opinion which you disagree with. Then you call my behavior childish for calling you out with the same condescending tone. "Even IF you knew more about me about the pro scene and the game itself, which I seriously doubt" Like what is the basis and merit of that statement? What do you know about me, other than calling me a liar based on nothing? Perhaps tone your argument better by disagreeing with me rather than slandering me to discredit mine. Edit: The point about CS movies was blatantly obvious and even reiterated by your comment yet it still somehow went over your head. That years later, when web use was exponentially improving sites still crashed for laughable kb rates. Yet somehow you think your point stands to reason why CS was more popular back then. I think a person that actually played the game back then would know better than someone that read about it.
2018-12-22 10:10
I was one of those who went to internet cafe to play HLDM on LAN, and all you said was right the down time of Cs made us choose DM over it, and even TF was very popular. Cs took more time but it was the one that survived amongs the others.
2018-12-21 22:29
Thank you sir, it irks me to hell when people try and sound knowledgeable, and call someone else a liar with a fabricated lie of their own. The irony on the internets is mind boggling sometimes.
2018-12-22 10:06
I would know because someone who played the game that long won't brag about it in his first paragraph of a forum post. Get real, kid.
2018-12-16 23:01
My account is older than yours you twat. It's got nothing to do with bragging, it's about pointing out the obvious hyperbole that somehow Thorins opinion is worth more than mine. You don't know anything about me, yet you have assurance that you somehow do. Who the fuck even lies about useless shit like that. Take a seat kiddo.

If faze need to win anything, they need a IGL, not a aim star. They are packed with firepower all they need a brain power, who can guide them to victories. Karrigan did his part of taking where FAZE is now along with his team mates, he need to go back to danish scene and nurture young talent and make the danish csgo still more powerful.

i don't think either but it would be nice to make a team with 3 danes and 2 norwegians (although language barrier). danish scene is fine. remake something like eoL or something. cromen really deserves a good igl who believes in him. truth and mystic could need a chance. rubino where the fuck is he even along with jkaem. but norwegians on their own just can't make good teams. they need danes especially experiences igl like karrigan.

In written text, yes pretty much no barrier (with exeptions). In speech, no, danish and norwegian way of pronounsiation is way different, and can make a big enough language barrier

no i dont think so. A full star-team doesnt work against them. actually the only team that beat Astralis in a tournament in 2 (!!) best of threes was North. Do they have insane firepower? no. but MSL's fast calls and his perfect executes got them the title. TL;DR: You cant outaim Astralis. To consistantly beat them you need to also outsmart them.
2018-12-16 12:14
no, no one took tournament before major seriously. except north. While everyone was saving strats for major, north did opposite and they didnt even qualify for the major.
2018-12-16 12:25
#527
k0nfig | 
Germany Trax_ 
doesnt matter, the fact stayed: MSL outplayed Astralis twice in one Tournament. Do you really believe that if Astralis played another team in the finals (like FaZe, NaVi) that this team would have saved strats? Error 404 logic not found
2018-12-16 12:28
OK so basically you are saying some random dreamhack tournament (14 days before major after one month of players break) > Major. You must be really delusional fanboi.

#672
k0nfig | 
Germany Trax_ 
Random? FaZe could have won the IGS there if you dont remember. And i dont say the Major is less important - but you cant deny facts. You said nobody took the Tournament seriously because it's before the Major, only North did. That means that teams will take the Tournaments after the Major more seriously again. My point is: Why do they still dont beat Astralis then? When they are so much better and now take it seriously, they should beat Astralis easier than North. MSL is the solution, no more to say.
2018-12-16 13:07
Obviously Astralis is focusing on timing of their form. As they mentioned in many interviews they dont want to be that sharp in the beggining of every tournament as at its end. So the courve of their form, shape or whatever you called has to have ascending trend. So they didnt lost because of MSL, they lost because they were timing form for most important tournament. While your "mastermind" MSL tmed form of their team poorly, so he didnt qualify for major and it cost him a job

+1. Sadden by the move. The team was choking left and right and it wasn't his fault. Everyone told them to get a psychologist but never did. I don't see FaZe getting any better with that broken mentality. They apparently learn nothing from MIBR.

they already have tons of firepower i dont understand who could possible replace karrigan, they might get someone and have a "honeymoon" period for a month or so, but they will go downhill again right after..
2018-12-16 12:48
FaZe's philosophy is always to get the best and put them together. When the team is not winning and karrigan is not fragging, they simply think he is not the "best" anymore. They will never gonna dig deep and address the underline problem which is their broken mentality. If there is a ranking for choking, FaZe is certainly #1 by a mile. I thought the team itself AKA GuardiaN, Olof, rain and NiKo are smarter than this. They wouldn't choose this cheap workaround but I guess I was wrong.

This is probably not their decision to bench karrigan.And you are not right about the number one team that choke always that is for sure not FaZe and they proved it recently.The choke team is and always will be Liquid :)
2018-12-16 15:19
Well, FaZe started the year with 2 chokes at Major and Katowice which were two biggest events of this year. So whatever ESL events that TL choked on doesn't hold a candle. However, I do see your point. TL and FaZe would kick anyone else's ass in term of choking. I feel TL has been doing better in term of their mentality. They mentioned several times they have been working with a sport psychologist to address the issue which sometimes FaZe never did.

Bulgaria roundup 
The difference is that FaZe could of won both major and katowice, and yes they lost both but it was close, could of gone both ways, while Liquid in most of their grand finals this year, they weren't even close of winning.Do you get my point? Still with all these problems FaZe managed to be the 2nd best team with 3 t1 events wins - one of them against Astralis 3-0.The others teams that won t1 event this year are Navi, fnatic and north(i dont consider blast pro series as a t1 event for sure) :)

Well, this is the end of FaZe. Kick karrigan will never fix the freaking broken mentality they have this whole year. They will get a fifth and keep choking/losing. GuardiaN will probably retire as a result. They're probably gonna chop Rain next. By the end of 2019, we will have a new roster with NiKo and Olof. They will become the new Mouz, in and out of Top 5 but never gonna win a Major.

2018-12-16 13:30
But you are soo sure that they would be soo much better If the keeped karigan?How do you know that they wouldn't suck forever even with him satying in the team?Maybe they wouldn't do shit If they didn't changed players soo often,there is no proof.
2018-12-17 10:37
I believe the problem with the team was never karrigan. Even if karrigan is the weakest link, with that much firepower from NiKo, rain, Olof and GuardiaN, they could streamroll anybody. They just choke because the issue is in their heads. Look at NaVi, they literally play with 4 bots + s1mple and they still make stuff happen because they don't choke. In the end of day, we won't know if kicking karrigan is a good move or not until the results show up next year. I don't think it is personally but hey I can be totally wrong. We will see, won't we?

FaZe like stars. I guess they buy someone from Mousesports (ropz, snax, sunny) or refrezh, scream, tabseN, maybe sergej Respect for Karrigan, one of the 1.6 legends who is so good in global offensive
2018-12-16 12:54
Why is robban not kicked? He's useless in this team. It feels like he doesn't bring anything to the team. I'm actually surprised. Karrigan wasn't the worst part of FaZe. At least robban was more useless and should have been kicked before karrigan. FaZe is actually playing without a coach. NaVi looks way better and they consistently play at least with 2 bots.
2018-12-16 13:00
How do you know that Robban is useless?
2018-12-16 13:03
Because FaZe have always cracked under pressure this year except for IEM Sydney. If you listened to Magisk's interview, he said that zonic helpsb them a lot when the pressure is high or the opposition are doing really well. Same with people like Zews, Kane. RobbaN doesn't seem to be helping them.

2018-12-17 11:19
Karrigan goes to North most likely. Think it's sad though that even now people still don't see the value of structure, and that it is superior to the value of skill. FaZe already have the most skilled line-up CS:GO has ever seen, and still they are not the best team. Swapping out Karrigan for more skill isn't going to improve the team. Still I do hope that s1mple moves on from Natus Vincere, not necessarily to FaZe but it surely is an option.
2018-12-16 13:04
NiKo shouldn't be IGL. He will make more space for himself alone on a team which has GuardiaN, one of the best AWPers of all time. Rain should've gone, Stewie should've been picked and Karrigan returned to the IGL role. Also, as the other comments say, RobbaN should leave. Unlike Zonic, Zews or even Kane, he provides nothing when the team is struggling or cracking under pressure. His lack of effort actually has lead to the lack of belief in Karrigan's calling. FaZe ungrateful team.
2018-12-16 13:05
STEWIE LOL. Rain is better than stewie he just has this shitty role with no support whatsoever. Karrigan sucked at Major and got replaced by Niko and if it was not for him they wouldnt be major legends they'd be fighting for requalification in the minor. NiKo can IGL and frag he just needs someone with him. I'd say tarik is a good choice but is he willing to move to europe? Because of ping issues they can't play together. So chrisJ seems to be best option IF they want to get an actual IGL. If they want a fragger support i'd easily go after KRIMZ he could bring firepower, stability and extra motivation to partner with olofmeister.
2018-12-16 13:12
Before olof left FaZe temporarily, they always performed well when Rain performed well. However, Rain has seen a dip in form and so have FaZe. Karrigan won 2 big tournaments with 2 different stand-ins, his IGLing isn't the problem. FaZe started losing faith in him when things went to shit, which is where the coach should've come in to help. NiKo is a weak IGL. He only makes space for himself. So they'll have to look at ChrisJ or someone. Ex6tenz is available but a team that plays such a loose style won't want him. I still believe they should've made Karrigan IGL again because he knows how to handle all these stars. If they wanted to change something, maybe get Janko instead of RobbaN, and replace Rain with Stewie or SuNny.
2018-12-16 13:18
100% agree with the coach statement. Should be replaced. NiKo is a weak IGL, true, thats why i said he needs some1 to help him. Also, i dont like the idea of having a "young" IGL in a team of experienced players such as olof and guardian. Well i dont think they'd replace rain since NiKo (team leader seems like) says he is the best player to play with etc etc. rain has been inconsistent thats true but I BELIEVE this is mostly because of FaZe's structure. Because on skill term (aim) he is on par with dupreeh. Janko would be great, he'd bring structure to this loose style. IDK if this would be good because its the loose style that made them win what they won in the past.
2018-12-16 13:28
Look at the top teams right now like Astralis, Team Liquid, Na'Vi, they all have a tactical approach to the game. They all have coaches that help them out with the strats as well as keeping them motivated when things aren't going well. It is too risky for FaZe to try out a tactical approach, but if things don't work out again at the major, they'll definitely have to overhaul their style of play.

This wont help Faze. Nikos stats since taking over IGL not good. His calling depth also questionable. He just has a big ego and think he can do it better. Late move. They could have signed MSL when he was a Free Agent.
2018-12-16 13:05

i have a feeling he might be next if they make a change and don't improve, dude hasn't been a star in months, look at his stats, if he cannot find consistent motivation they've gotta kick him

well, enough star power, they need a dependable role player, no need to be flashy but who can be a solid support, bomb site anchor while play as CT and can play within niko's system and strat. suggestion?? cromen can be one of those, he already proved himself when he play stand in for olof, but maybe they can find someone better or maybe add another star power, since faze basically the real madrid of CSGO

Now do -RobbaN +YNk They really need a coach that can motivate them, especially when having a rough game, and YNk seems like the perfect replacement. Also good friends with NiKo, which is an added benefit.

imo by far karrigan is still the best choice for faze...why not bring in someone who got stronger firepower to replace rain n keep karrigan as igl
2018-12-16 14:07
I think they should replace rain and olof and bring 3 maybe ropz sunny and simple

Expected, but i dont know if its the best decision. Feels bad4him. Hope s1mple joins
2018-12-16 14:09
My favourite player, but this is the correct decision. No room on Faze until he gets back to the level he should be at.
2018-12-16 14:10
+Simple u know that
2018-12-16 14:14
Can't wait for them to pick up another fragger and then absolutely fail
2018-12-16 14:14
Its kinda funny considering faze couldnt get out of groups most times before they picked up karrigan, but they have been slumping bad for a long time now.

2018-12-16 14:16
That would be insane! I think it's not going to happen tho, since fnatic is slowly improving and it seems like they have a good team spirit now after brollan and twist joined.
2018-12-16 15:02
finally, now they just need to pick up a better support player.
2018-12-16 14:16
How did he manage to stay for so long with such a low skill ceiling? No tactics, no smart gameplay, no aim.
2018-12-16 14:17
XANTARES WONT WORK, HE CANT SPEAK ENGLISH, BUT I THINK THAT SIMPLE WOULD BE DREAM TEAM XD

Honestly I really want them to grab tarik and YNK. I think they need someone like tarik to share IGL responsibilities with NiKo for this team to work. YNK could definitely help with strats and I think he would be a good fit.

They need an IGL, but who? You guys are talking about S1mple, Sunny, Snax....LUL
2018-12-16 14:29
Actually last few tournaments NiKo was IGLing so :)
2018-12-16 21:26
Its fine, karrigan should still be wanted by NA or by Danish scenes, so he’ll be fine......
2018-12-16 14:29
Because Xantares going to Faze
2018-12-16 14:29
WoW...Fast reactions!!! .NOT.
2018-12-16 14:31
but who will be their igl? NiKo shouldn't take over the leadership, because they need him as a superstar player. They can't even get a better igl than karrigan, golden? fuck no he sucks ass.
