karrigan announces Envy exit

FaZe member Finn "karrigan" Andersen is currently assessing his options following the end of his loan with Envy, the Danish player has revealed.

The announcement came shortly after Envy were eliminated from the North American closed qualifier for IEM Sydney following a 0-2 defeat to Ghost in the tournament's lower bracket semi-final.

The Danish tactician spent just over a month with Envy on loan from FaZe, who had benched the player in mid-December after winning just one Big Event during the second half of 2018.

karrigan's time with Envy has come to an end

The 28-year-old was brought in with a view to helping Envy to qualify for the IEM Katowice Major, but the team's fortunes did not improve under his charge as they finished in third place at the Americas Minor and went out last at the Minor Play-in.

In a Twitter post, karrigan wrote that he is unsure of his future and vowed to improve on his devastating recent form after averaging a 0.86 rating with the North American side.

With karrigan's departure, Envy are now left with the following quartet:

United States Stephen "reltuC" Cutler
United States Josh "jdm64" Marzano
United States Noah "Nifty" Francis
United States Taylor "Drone" Johnson

What does age have to do with this? lmao its a video game. It's not like he will have to fight younger players physically

but age matters more in video games.

Well yes maybe your reaction time gets worse and worse with age from idk 22? But older players have experience and that often helps more then reaction time.
2019-02-08 08:45
I mean look at forest and adren. They're both ~30 and they're ridiculously good.
2019-02-08 10:44
Being good and being in one's best form are two different ideas. f0rest is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, players in CS history. Of course he is still good. I mean you need to compare a player's performance to his performance at a younger age. F0rest is the most dominant player, alongside with Neo, when he is younger. In other words, he peaks at a younger age, so does other great players. I have never seen a player competing at top level CS peak after 30. TBH I don't understand why people are making an argument about aging doesn't matter in CS. You barely see players competing at top level above 30. That's a living proof already.
2019-02-08 17:32
esports have been a thing since what, around 2009? Not enough time to know if age is a problem for esports players. The problem with f0rest and the old 1.6 guys is that is another playstyle completely now
2019-02-08 20:27
you don't see that many players compete above 30. I am talking about competing, not peaking. If you still see CS players improve and reach their full potentials after 30, you can maybe make an argument that there isn't enough time to know. Esports is not a thing since around 2009, but CS is a thing for like 20 years. I have never seen a player peak after 30. I have seen star players retire before 30. I am talking about 20 years. In real life sports, almost every great player peaks after or around 30. It is not even an even match to compare. The evidence is too overwhelming to even consider time as a variable here.
2019-02-11 07:08
name a player that is still at his peak after idk, 28 maybe? In any real sports, in general, athletes usually peak after 30. Doesn't matter if it's soccer, basketball, tennis, etc. However, in video games, you are considered a vet at around 30 or even less. Also there aren't that many 30+ esports players because most of them retired already. Age clearly matters in esports. you can't deny it.

GUYS, HE IS GOING TO MOUZ. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST
2019-02-08 01:08
Honestly this dudes career seems to be coming to an end at the top level. He played at the same level he played before. Mediocre ingame leading and a terrible fragger, first at the top scene and now at the t2 scene the same happened. Only reassured my feelings that in FaZe this was covered by huge talent from the likes of NiKo, Guardian etc. not impressed by him at all. Neither his IGL nor his fraggin potential.
2019-02-08 01:11
I'd say on this team he actually excelled in his role. Easily the third best player on the team while taking shit spots and trying to support Sure its been a while since he's had success with his leading like that first faze roster, but you have to give him credit for making this envy squad do more than its worth

gade is not a problem, casper "cadian" cant lead, impact 0, so -cadiaN +karrigan
2019-02-08 06:52
If I was karrigan I would go to North kick cadian and aizy and try to get Mertz for sure I think he is right now most underrated awper in game

karrigan has a Master's degree in business administration and auditing, you fucking moron. Even if he had zero work experience, he'd be much better off than you for the rest of his life.
