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)

2019-09-11 17:01
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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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...

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.

Gotta agree with this. A true legend, but it's time to hang the mouse up proud imo. I remember how inspiring he was watching back in the day in 1.6 playing train etc. Master of the yard. Him, GTR, Forest, Markeloff and all the other legends are truly inspiring for me.

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

2019-09-11 18:19
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.

coldzera to faze
2019-09-11 19:47
They should just retire the entire faze team together, holding hands, by witness of Jesus, for one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Basically this is a subtil way of FaZe to basically confirm coldzera. If Olof leaves as well, hello coldzera and Aleksib

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.

another scapegoat for other under-performing "star" players

Expected. More like, about time. There was absolutely no way this roster was going to work with NEO. Maybe on his prime but not anymore. Still a legend tho, respect
