NEO departs FaZe

Filip "NEO" Kubski's stint as a substitute in FaZe has come to an end, the organization has announced.

The news of NEO's departure follows FaZe's underwhelming 12-14th finish at the StarLadder Major in Berlin, where they were eliminated after losses to Vitality, CR4ZY, and Renegades.

The Polish veteran's stay in FaZe has come to an end

FaZe are now officially down to four players, with rumors circulating about more potential changes in the squad.

NEO was brought in to the team to assume the in-game leader role, so with his departure, FaZe could either be looking for a replacement that could handle the calling, or give that responsibility back to Nikola "NiKo" Kovač, who led FaZe following Finn "karrigan" Andersen's departure.

FaZe are now:

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

Serbia Janko "YNk" Paunović (coach)

If you really think he's the main/only problem to explain why Faze was dogshit just watch Faze with Adren ( major finalist once again) = one fluke on Blast, before when they had Karrigan at the end? Was it Karrigan's fault? For the long-term you're right cause NEO is old and doesn't have that same drive for the game but please trashtalk all the other players as well
2019-09-11 17:04
Rain, Olof and Guardian's inconsistent and bad games have caused them to become so bad. You can get any IGL in the world, but when your players lose every gunfight you can't win.
2019-09-11 17:16
FaZe fans are just delusional as fuck, always wanting to kick the fifth player without seeing that olof and guardian are unmotivated/washed up and rain is inconsistent as hell

We are not all delusional, but some love the roster so much its hard to see more than 1 player leave even tho there should. And i think everybody is seeing olof rain and guardian are playing poorly but none want to accept it
2019-09-11 17:47
i think every faze fans knows that. Their lack of motivation kinda of gets to rain and NiKo as well, and that fucks the team as a whole. With cold + aleksib its like going to a new level, mainly like when guardian + olof joined. But now with a proven IGL and fragger as well, we could see faze dominating more than they did when the 'super team' assembled.
2019-09-11 19:04
Faze will not be getting cold + aleskiB. They can't even afford cold right now and thats with cold putting in money on his buyout. And aleski still has a high buyout too. It will be cold and the new guy they have been practicing with who apparently is an fpl eu god.
2019-09-11 19:50
it seems like broky will fill in for now and they'll later go for aleksi, but coldzera wants to play, he said that in an BR interview that he is practising hard for when he gets into a new team. Aleksi can take a break for now.

2019-09-11 17:04
yeah thats true maybe but idk, maybe faze wants to try broky cuz they maybe have the same feeling as hes the new "ZywOo" but hes not. Hes good but hes not.

What’s the problem Liquid “doesn’t” have one

But tbf, old and nijonare strong awpers too
2019-09-11 17:41
Nitr0 adapted to the awp tho
2019-09-11 18:08
no problem with that we'd have cold niko and olof that can awp just as great as all the t1 awpers besides zywoo s1mple and dev1ce

The funny thing is that Neo was playing quite decent in Berlin, clutching a couple 1v2. Sure you can expect more from an IGL but I think you can surley expect more from players like Rain, Niko, and Guardian in a Major games.
2019-09-11 17:15
exactly
2019-09-11 17:51
I hope that Neo will sign with Complexity!He's not a bad player and he can help that team a lot!

Yes but niko and rain played worse when Neo came in. Not saying its His fault but their playstyles might be different. Maybe if they get a worse IGL fragwise but match the playstyles better niko rain and guardian can play better
2019-09-14 19:43
yeh... but i still dont like the idea of niko = IGL, i just hope they get NBK after playing with broky, cause imagine YNK stand-in xDD

+1 Olof garbage Guardian was a bot Rain doesnt show up in 9/10 games Niko trying to control everything faze wanna do
2019-09-11 17:13
+1 This super team failed a long time ago. Nothing surprises me more than them still trying to hold this shit show together. Should have dropped rains inconsistent ass a long time ago

agree. rain hard carried faze on their first match, and thats it... olof tried to get his title back as we all know, so we have seen some good performance from him. faze was a lost team, no igl can do anything with a team like this.. they should change lot of things, and neo should get the respect that he deserves...

2019-09-11 17:22
I think he was a good IGL for faze, aleksib is a better IGL that's for sure. But faze will solve any issue with that change. They have a mental issue as the whole team, no IGL can change this...

Mad respect to one of the original Legends of the game that all of us now use as an emotional crutch to hold ourselves up with. Neo was with the game and its community for so long and inspired countless numbers of CS players like ourselves to grow in and out of the game. I owe Neo my life. If it wasn't for CS half the cucks here probably would have offed themselves in 2014. F for respect mens.

2019-09-11 18:08
He said many times that he's nowhere near retirement and he wants to play as long as he physically can. The run with Faze actually did him a lot of good. People see that he's still a good fragging IGL, so I can definitely see him going to some euro/na orgs like Complexity

When someone is IGLing for years with one language it is hard to be same good Leader with another language. English is easy in calling but all the skill aleksib had as IGL was in Finnish language. So it can take long period of time to be a good Coordinator using English language. And aleksib set-ups are pretty basic. Same 15 rounds on T side but with slightly adjusted changes. It can strike for FaZe but also can be pretty outdated.
2019-09-11 18:20
I agree 100% - but Faze is an international team anyway so why not.. I doubt international teams will ever have a long run like SK, Liquid or Astralis

On some Polish tournament there was a question: "With who you would never play again?". And Snax said: "With taz and neo". Sad, but true.

can anyone answer this seriously... i haven't watched much csgo for a couple years. I know FaZe were brought together as a 'super team' but is anyone in the lineup apart from NiKo even remotely close to that individual level anymore? edit - I'd love to see NiKo and Coldzera on the same team!!! Imagine that with a proper IGL.

well the thing that was a plague for FaZe was structure. they needed a proper defensive player, an awper, an entry fragger, an *I G L* and a star player.
