RobbaN steps down as FaZe coach

Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström has stepped down from his position as head coach of FaZe, the North American organisation have announced.

In a statement, the 33-year-old explained that the decision was motivated by personal reasons, having recently become a father for the second time, adding that he will be transitioning to a new role in FaZe, which will be revealed later in January.

RobbaN, who made a name for himself playing for teams like Begrip, NiP and SK Gaming in 1.6, had been working with the team since February 2016, with Håvard "rain" Nygaard being the only remaining line-up player of that time.

RobbaN is no longer FaZe's coach

During his time as FaZe's coach, the team won several international events, including ELEAGUE Premier 2017 and IEM Sydney 2018, appearing at the top of the world ranking for 15 weeks between October 2017 and April 2018.

The announcement comes at a time when FaZe are also looking for a new player after benching Finn "karrigan" Andersen, who has since been loaned out to North American side Envy.

FaZe will make their first appearance of 2019 in just two weeks' time as the team will be competing at the $200,000 iBUYPOWER Masters, scheduled for January 19-20.

The European team currently have:

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

Robban to Movistar Riders
2019-01-06 00:45
If it's for family reasons then it's the right decision, but on a professional level, it's about time. I've never thought he was a good coach, who was able to help out the team, particularly Karrigan, with any insight or tactical smarts. Hopefully they get a better coach.
2019-01-06 00:45
And what do you know about that? Pretty much everyone in FaZe has praised RobbaN, he was an IGL himself for pretty much his whole career in top teams in 1.6. He was even IGL in FaZe at one point before the coaching rule. Ofc he provided insight, you think FaZe would've kept him for 3 years as a fucking cheerleader? You're delusional
2019-01-06 01:00
I didn’t say I knew anything, I just said what I thought. If you can find me VODs of FaZe matches where they take a tactical timeout and they make a clear adjustment in playing style or tactics, please share them with me. I’m doubtful. Also, do you expect that players would trash talk their current coach in public? Public statements aren’t always true; just look at two-faced FalleN.

2019-01-06 01:58
well you only become a father once as far as i know. as soon as one kid is born , you're a father. there is no second time. maybe it's you who doesn't understand why that makes no sense?

2019-01-06 12:31
And this comes from what?! :D I am a fan and even receive notifications of his every tweet. I cannot recall anything that would say a thing about this. Only thing he said is that he thinks of FaZe as a last team he is playing for before retirement.

2019-01-06 12:23
Dont get the point of these passive coaches like RobbaN. Tons more of them in teams. I get it they probably put their work in behind the scenes, but if ur just standing there and all you do during a tournament is fistbump with your teammates then I think its pointless. I guess zews and zonic might be the exception here since their respective teams actually seems to listen to their input. The rest of the coaches? Waste of space.
2019-01-06 12:27
zews already joining MIBR (TOP1 team in the world for 2019)
2019-01-06 12:30
Err, no. Maybe zews can perform some miracle for this team, but playerwise unless fer steps up and becomes top4 player again then I think its unlikely that they will win anything for 2019. I hold NaVi, FaZe and Astralis as better teams. TACO good support but really overrated. Just seem him whiff loads in Liquid but extremely good individual players in NAF, Twistzz and Elige covered his mistakes. felps is really bad IMO
2019-01-06 12:32

I think Robban is a big reason thry've been good for this long. With all the recensioner changes within the team i think they might struggle to be top 5. But perhaps AdreN can excel under NiKo's leadership and if it turn out well... Who knows?
