FaZe confirm AdreN signing; unveil YNk as coach

MIRAA
January 7th, 2019 00:18

FaZe have announced they have signed Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev to complete their roster, while Janko "YNk" Paunović has been hired to coach the team.

The Kazakh veteran, who had been without a team since being released by Gambit, has penned a short-term contract that will see him play for the team until the end of the IEM Katowice Major, kicking off February 13.

He will be stepping into the shoes of Finn "karrigan" Andersen, who was benched by the team before the turn of the year and subsequently loaned out to North American side Envy.

AdreN is FaZe's new fifth player until the end of the Major

This will be the first challenge in AdreN's career in a team outside the CIS region. The 28-year-old, who first made waves in the Counter-Strike scene when he led k23 to a runner-up finish at WCG 2005, played for teams like Virtus.pro, Astana Dragons and HellRaisers before joining Gambit, whom he would guide to success at PGL Major Krakow.

YNk will be taking over from Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström, who stepped down as FaZe coach on Saturday after nearly three years with the team. This will be the second coaching stint for the Serbian, who guided MIBR between August and December, during which the team won the ZOTAC Cup Masters and reached the final of two Big Events, BLAST Pro Series Istanbul and the ECS Season 6 Finals.

The new FaZe roster will make their first appearance at iBUYPOWER Masters, which will be held on January 19-20 in Los Angeles. Having finished in the top eight at the FACEIT Major, the team will skip IEM Katowice's New Challengers Stage, only getting in on the action in the New Legends Stage, which will run from February 21-24.

With these changes, FaZe now have:

Bosnia and Herzegovina Nikola "NiKo" Kovač
Sweden Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer
Norway Håvard "rain" Nygaard
Slovakia Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács
Kazakhstan Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev (stand-in through Major)

Serbia Janko "YNk" Paunović (coach)

I approve insofar as it's only a short comtract - if they can't get results in those few tournaments, then get a proper IGL instead of AdreN

Orrrr...maybe teams should start giving players more than 68 hour trials before making roster changes...CSGO wasn’t painful to watch before this trend started...just saying...was just the baguettes
2019-01-07 13:54
FaZe needs a proper IGL and has for a while. AdreN is not usually an IGL and is not capable of being one good enough for FaZe Therefore I'm saying unless he is capable of making a considerable impact as just another player, enough to make up for the lack of organisation of the other players and for NiKo's drop off due to HIS leading, it would not be worth it to keep AdreN and it would be a better use of the org's money and the team's time to find a proper leader and integrate him into their system/adapt the system around him
2019-01-07 18:28
Dude, I don't know if NiKo felt comfortable doing it but he was actually a pretty decent IGL. He could keep doing it and bring another GOD, just like Real Madrid that has a star player in every single position
2019-01-10 04:20
Agreed, but a real IGL would help all the players reach their potential rather than just NiKo helping himself - which is kinda how he was calling: around himself

Pronax didn't even play bad in the games they lost, people think he's somekind of tactial mastermind, but if you actually watched the Fnatic games from back in the day you'd know that he wasn't that good of a IGL, nobody was simply able to adapt to their playstyle.

bigs roster move > fazes roster move faze wanted to get xantares, but he went to trash big now both mouz and big > faze lmao
2019-01-07 09:38
what kind of nonsense are u writing a kid? any player from faze better than the whole BUG team. CRY IS FREE
2019-01-07 09:41
Nope, only Niko. Tabsen and Xantares are better than the rest, And niko cant carry this washed up players alone "what kind of nonsense are u writing a kid?" nice english btw
2019-01-07 09:43
who is tabsen and xantares LUL? what have they achieved? H@H@H@H@H@. one more. to compare this trash with such a team need to start playing for so many years at t1 lvl like a faze, against the best teams in the world, and not sucking a bigdick at t2 & t3. GOODLUCK
2019-01-07 09:46
Thats why Faze lost vs BIG the last game, Also they do play on the same stages and vs same enemies, not in different teams. Yes, faze achieved more, because they are the better team over the last years ofc. But atm only niko is good, and the rest in this team is shit. And thats a fact. Even mouz is ranked higher, faze cant even stay in top 5 and was on top 8 recently. Lmao delusional fanboy. BIG sucks ass, but Faze is even more pathetic, because fans think they are a tier 1 team
2019-01-07 09:49
Rain is better than xantares and guardian is better than smooya/tabsen.
2019-01-07 09:56
Smooya sucks ass, yes. Tabsen and Xantares > Rain and Guardian Both suck in the last months. On their peak, rain and guardian are better Thats my opinion
2019-01-07 09:59
hltv.org/stats/players/compare/7938/XANT.. hltv.org/stats/players/compare/5794/tabs.. This shows that rain, in slump, playing more times against top times (which makes It more difficult to be consistent) got similar stats to xantares, and tabsen, in his prime until now, hasn't been able to make big gap to one of the worst and less consistent Guardian s we have ever seen. Facts just contradict you, but I respect your opinion.
2019-01-07 10:21
i do compare them with all matches, because everything else wouldnt make sense with xantars, played almost nothing on big stage hltv.org/stats/players/compare/7938/XANT.. hltv.org/stats/players/compare/5794/tabs.. but we will see in 2019
2019-01-07 10:25
Then it isn't fair because xantares have played against teams even out of top 30, so it would be more legit to compare them in big events.
2019-01-07 11:06
But, on the other side he does have noobs in his team, so you cant compare it with stats. 2019 will show how skilled he is against good enemies and compared to others
2019-01-07 11:55
And he has played against noobs too, and paz and calyx aren't bad actually.
2019-01-07 12:23
u are a stupid if u specifically compare two players of completely different ranks. go to school. on the whole, the big team has not achieved. except for one victory over home. xantares is good, on turkish publics and against tier 3-4 teams, saw nothing cool on him on t1 lvl. nothing
2019-01-07 12:57
No, im not. I can compare the players skillwise, which i do. And there is a reason why faze wanted xantares to join faze, which he declined

2019-01-07 11:55

2019-01-07 12:54
Also, even IF every player from faze is better than from big, this "bigs roster move > fazes roster move faze wanted to get xantares, but he went to trash big now both mouz and big > faze lmao" statements would be still true. Cant handle the truth kid
2019-01-07 09:51

Didn't you read the title? Faze confirm AdreN signing. Stand-in only through the major because of the roster lock rule. They probably signed him after the deadline. Edit: my bad, I didn't read the article thoroughly. Sorry mate 😂
2019-01-07 01:16
your answer did not make any sense anyways... he has to be confirmed as fifth until the January 1st... at least the confirmation has to go to valve until then... and faze hasnt got a reason for the special rule to get another player after the roster lock... this rule only works when the player becomes really ill after January 1st or the visa gets declined (not sure about the second reason) and so if they wouldn't have confirmed adren to valve until January 1st Robban or Ynk would have needed to play... dont know how the coach has to be confirmed to valve tho

exactly that! tbh I like YNK as an addition! he has a great knowledge of cs if you ask me!
2019-01-07 00:22
maybe i am wrong, we will see results in IBP masters and major in katowice x)
2019-01-07 00:24
And he worked with and played with Niko before.

If he was free, and is good then its worth to sign him for short amount of time. U dont loose anything and u most likely have som clauses in contract that allows you to just release him without paying him rest of the paycheck.

I guess hes the best pickup they could get currently.. (I'm guessing tarik is still under contract with MIBR?) Considering AdreN has no contract with Gambit and goes on loan to play the major then I guess this pickup can be considered quite decent. If it doesnt work out then just continue to look for someone, and lets face it, no current star is going to leave their team before a major

What a terrible move, I doubt with this garbage lineup they can make legends status again, Adren has been an absoloute bot throughout 2018
2019-01-07 02:17
Adren its good choice...but why they take ynk its idiot...
2019-01-07 02:17
...where do morons like you come from, and where have your brains gone? AdreN has been extremely meh throughout 2018, while Ynk already proved himself with his very first coaching gig ever (which means he's probably only gonna get better from here on out), and Ynk is also great friends with NiKo, while RobbaN more or less just...was there.
2019-01-07 02:22
man maybe you are moron hire... AdreN its a good aimer and good player... Ynk don't show nothing in mibr like coach... get any coach to mibr and they play the same... mibr they are all good player.. but when you see how they play with coach ynk... its looks like they dont know what to do... just wait till zews work with mibr and you see how they will play...
2019-01-07 11:04
...you DO realize that MiBR was actually playing, IN THE SERVER, actually DURING the matches (where coaches can't talk most of the time anyway), with two Americans, right? Your tiny, TINY peanut brain DOES understand that...right? You do understand them having to use English coincided with Ynk being their coach, but Ynk still improved the team after he came in (which I can tell you is not a coincidence)? Also, while zews is undoubtedly a fantastic coach, you DO also know that they ALSO switched the two Americans for two fucking Brazilians, so they can...SPEAK IN THEIR NATIVE LANGUAGE AGAIN? Like I said, where do morons like you come from, and where have your brains gone?
2019-01-08 02:57
man you are idiot.... Do you understand that astralis coach can talk during the game...but astralis doing good... or liquid where taco speak english... i think you dont know what mean coach idiot.... coach it not that person who should say during the game what they should do step by step :DD man where your's brain ??? yes zews good coach... but ynk not... if they take 2 us speakers that they know what they do... i can't even listen such braindead child like you...
2019-01-08 11:50
I'm not super optimistic about AdreN, but he is more or less on trial. I'm ridiculously excited about the prospect of Ynk in FaZe though, especially if the players listen to him.

Legendary shit. Best possible pick-up atm and i think for CIS region it's insane like s1mple surprised us and joined Liquid few years ago, because it's second time that CIS player joined to international team. Especially for his years it's amazing motivation bump even tho they signed him for major. For me it's like if Buffon joined PSG only through Campions league xD So imagine that you are 28 years, sitting home in Kazakhstan without salary after leaving your team (only streaming sometimes) and FaZe asking you to play major. Even if they will have bad results, for AdreN it's best possible scenario. They will pay him good money because they took him for free (no need yo pay someone else) and imagine how much $ he will earn from stickers because am definitely gonna buy his stockers as much as i can. As i said for us it's legendary shit

Its Good move TBH. Also don't forget Karrigan is still in contract with faze. Envy have karrigan on loan. So if AdreN don't work out for Faze, they might go back to karrigan or find other player. YNK is best addition over Robban. We have to see how AdreN works out

So ,FaZe will play with karrigan at the major ?
2019-01-07 06:48
No karrigan is with envy for major (on loan) They can have him back if adren don't work in major and ibuy masters Adren has contracted only till major end They ll see what is good
2019-01-07 06:49
Karrigan is playing with Envy only in minor you dumb ass . FaZe will play New Legend stage not minor .
2019-01-07 06:53
Minor and every stages are all considered as part of major Better chat like civilised guy why use rude words.
2019-01-07 07:09
>minor >major pick one Minor and major itself are different events . Check hltv events . IEM Katowice 2019 and minor are not together as a event
2019-01-07 07:21
They maybe diff but they count for same Anyways a team can't use a player in whole major if he represents other team So doesn't matter

Yes my friend
