rain: "If I have to step aside to give broky some space, I'm all up for a younger player to step up"

Håvard "rain" Nygaard spent some time with HLTV.org at the Barclays Center to talk about the most recent happenings in FaZe.

FaZe had a rough run at ESL One New York, going out in last place following losses to a red-hot Evil Geniuses and to the not-so-hot OpTic. The European combine will now travel back home and compete at ESL Pro League before using a three-week hiatus in their calendar to bootcamp and start giving shape to the new roster.

rain believes broky could be one of the next big things

rain touches upon several topics in the interview, including the new signings, how the team is gelling, taking some time after ESL Pro League to try and work out the kinks, Nikola "NiKo" Kovač's pledge to in-game leadership, and how the team is figuring out their new identity after making changes.

Let's get straight to broky talk. What were your expectations of him when coming here and how did he perform in your eyes?

We brought him in from FPL, where we played with him. The way he was playing and communicating was something you don't really see that much on FPL. There are plenty of young kids that just play for fun, but broky was more of a serious guy. He made good call-outs, had good communication, and he has kept it going here. We're quite surprised about how well he performed at his first tournament. He kept his cool and I think he did a really good job for his first big event.

Give me some of the details regarding the other signing, that of coldzera, how long have did you know that he was going to be the one. Was there a time where you were doubting that perhaps the transfer wouldn't happen? How did it all go down?

After the Major we had a talk and decided that we would have to change two players, one wouldn't be enough, and that's when we knew we would get him. The negotiations were a bit slow on this one, I think both parties were being a bit slow with it. We knew it was coldzera that we wanted to get, but we didn't actually know if it was going to happen and if FaZe and MIBR would reach an agreement, so it was a bit of a hard time, I would say.

How did you know immediately that coldzera had to be the guy to join the team?

I talked to NiKo, personally, and he said that he wanted to be the in-game leader and do anything he could to make the team better. He also said that coldzera would help him a lot and YNk said that he had never met such a hard-working player, something that I have noticed as well since playing with him. He's always showing us new stuff, and there's really a lot of hard work coming from him, which is the reason we decided to pick him.

You played a first rough event with two losses. What happened? What were your expectations after practice and so on?

It's always very different to play in practice and play on LAN. The teams you play against play differently, we react to situations differently, and we noticed that here, as well. Nuke was our best map by far in practice, but here our rotations were off and it didn't feel like we were playing as a team. I think it's going to take a little while before this roster can get it together, but give us a month or two and we'll be good.

You have a little bit of time before Pro League, but not much...

Yeah, we have one week, but after Pro League we'll have like three weeks and we'll bootcamp during that time to try and figure some more stuff out.

Do you think you'll be able to step it up a bit at ESL Pro League?

Yeah, I think so. It was a bit of a reality check, here. We realized we have to do things differently and we have to go back to the drawing board to figure out exactly what type of roles people should have. One week isn't much time to figure it out, but I think we'll have some new things for Pro League.

With two changes, how has that affected team dynamics? Especially losing GuardiaN's AWP? You have a lot of players who can take it, but before it was GuardiaN's territory.

If you noticed, Olof has become our AWPer now. He wanted to become the AWPer for a while, but when GuardiaN was on the team nobody could take it away from him because he's so talented with it. But Olof wanted to take it and now he's learning new positions on every single map, so it's going to take a little while. NiKo, he's going to have to learn to be a little bit more patient and let other people play, which I think will be hard at the beginning, but I think he's learning and it will be good eventually.

As far as broky goes, he wasn't really a carry player on his teams before, which led to believe that he would be a player that would give you guys space and kind of support your play, but we saw that he can shoot really well, so what place does he have on the roster?

He's more of a lurker, and he does have a supportive element, but I think all of us kind of do that a little bit...

Yeah, in this case when I say support I don't mean like throwing flashes or whatever, but rather him being a guy that takes a back seat and allows the stars to shine.

Yeah, but we also want to give him roles as well because we think he's going to be one of the next big things and I think he's going to be a really good player, eventually. He's a really good player now, but if we give him more space he's going to be even better. If I have to step aside to give him some space, I'm all up for a younger player to step up and do it. Right now he's kind of an anchor in our sites, we needed someone to play smart and buy time for us and to facilitate our rotations, and I think he's doing a really great job.

NiKo said he was going to go back to leading and so on, but do you think it could become the same old problem of him leading because he has to instead of because he wants to?

No, I asked him. I wouldn't be up for this change if it wasn't for him saying that he wanted to do this. I told him that "I cannot make a change knowing that you won't like it. Either we do this and you become the IGL or we don't do this at all." So we had a talk and he's dedicated now and will put in the work for it, so it's pretty set. [laughs]

Your run in New York in 2017 was one of the most dominating in CS:GO history...

Yeah, when we had that 16-6 average per map...

Yeah. From there to now, how has the trip been?

Aaah, it's been a rough one. The last year and a half has been really rough for NiKo, olofmeister and myself. We played with stand-ins and all that stuff, so it feels good to finally have a roster that we don't want to change. We have a long-term goal, and it may be a bit slow in the start, but we have a long-term goal we want to reach, so I think just getting a stable roster will help us eventually.

"I talked to NiKo, personally, and he said that he wanted to be the in-game leader and do anything he could to make the team better." And so he did the exact thing to make his team worse. Is there no management in this team? No coach?

2019-09-29 00:31
Seriously it's so funny to see a team like that fall this low. NiKo that thinks he is an IGL when he has the leadership of an oyster. Olof deciding after 6 years that he's an AWPer. Basically, it's just 5 players deciding for themselves what they want to do and what people they want to play with without anyone to say no to it.

To be fair, olof has been a capable awper in the past 6 years.
2019-09-29 00:40
Ye, he's decent with it. But being 2nd AWPer and being the main AWPer that your team rely on constantly are two different things. That plus all the problems they'll face with NiKo leading and broky that is a big question mark, that's too much uncertainity to be a top 5 team I think.

I'm sure w0xic, device, s1mple, ZywOo, allu, kennyS, CeRq & kNg are extremely afraid of olof AWPing capabilities. It's like saying f0rest is a good AWPer. He's decent with it like any pro that can 2nd AWP but that's it.
2019-09-29 01:37
Its laughable honestly. How blind can 5 people within a team be. They need an real IGL and a real AWPer. If I had command it would be -olof and -broky and + AleksiB & + AWPer? Don't really know which AWPer would fit in but there are many good AWPers around who don't have a team.

Europe Luboss 
And yet he was the best performer at that one lan lmao. Olof isn't an awper, broky is. Broky plays support, he does well as well. Niko goes IGL and goes 2-18. Even on a map you didn't prepare you don't go 2-18. Rain plays support, Cold setups himself for clutching. Niko is not an IGL nor an AWPer and apparently nor an entry ( there's no real entry anymore in today's CS btw) nor a lurker. He should be a rifler, so should olof, cold too and him too; now you need an IGL. Niko and friends went back to the starting point: get a fucking IGL and a real one, a real deal not one that has no depth or no experience, a real one like Alex, gla1ve, karrigan, nexa, AZR...

olof is the most concistent player on FaZe and does his job for the most part, obviously I also have my doubts about him as main awper though. NiKo shouldn't igl, mainly because he is a godlike player when just playing ever since he started igling his individual performance has declined rapidly.

Zeus was on decent CIS team, with worlds best player. He was also on the most lucky major run when there was no dominating cs teams. No one is talking bout any of the players from the gambit roster when they won. Where they all at??? Karrigan has consistently played for top team since start of his career, he might be having shit stats and looking like the snail from monsters inc. but to still be a top IGL after all this time, and consistent on many many teams.... Ur argument is shit, Carrygan accomplished way more than zeuz.
2019-09-29 15:42
my argument is good because karrigan has nothing done in these years only winning some tournaments and thats it Gambit major run wasnt lucky if you think a bit longer before you start to type bullshit you should know that Cloud 9 Major run was the luckiest thing ever happened watch at C9 where are they? Rush is on complexitiy tier 10 team or worse Stewie on Liquid Tarik on ex NRG Ska retired after win and Autimatic still on C9 because hes a dumb idiot who thinks that c9 will be better
2019-09-29 17:18
To make a point Zeus retired successfully with major win on his shoulder karrigan almost 30 years of age and reached nothing besides a couple of tournament wins karrigan 1 major final zeus 4 major finals usually i like danish people but youre annoying as fuck you little weasel

Because Na’Vi with a fresh look and players as good as S1mple and Electronic will roll over FaZe any day. At least Na’Vi have the IQ level to have been preparing an IGL capable player to take over. FaZe have done nothing since Karrigan’s removal but be cheap and horde players with no chance of winning a tournament. The FaZe management are the next level of brain dead. So yes, GuardiaN saved his career. If I was him, I’d be embarrassed to have retired in FaZe.

Tldr: faze sucks massive wieners *niko wants to lead and and persuaded teamates that cold is the right fit & can help him *olofmeister will be main awp *cold is hard working *rain does mind to give spots to broky, says hes a good player and is their anchor rn

All the best, really worried.. Seems everyone is learning new things rather do what they are good at
2019-09-29 01:05
Exactly. Everyone is put into sub optimal roles. They needed an AWPer and an IGL and decided to recruit 2 riflers. They are doing the same mistakes than NiP.

Niko leading will completely put off his frag capabilities. IMHO FaZe is on its way to become a disaster
2019-09-29 01:05
They already are a disaster. If this team works it'll be only better than now. But they don't look like they'll be competing for trophies anytime soon

You guys that like FaZe must take good care when it comes to coldzera. When he parted ways with MiBR he said some ludicrous amount of shit about the players and even about a certain stand-in player. He's most definetely a good person and even a team player

HLTV: "rain becomes free agent"
2019-09-29 01:50
How about stepping up instead of stepping aside? He's been playing worse than support Olof.
2019-09-29 02:03
He is entry, harder role than support
2019-09-29 04:40
oof rekt
2019-09-29 14:55
NiKo has recently been playing more of an entry than rain.
2019-09-29 17:03
People all think that rain is bad, when in reality all he needs is a solid IGL and a proper system. ChoKo's leading won't help him become the god he truly is. Revamp FaZe with rain, AleksiB, broky, styko/jackz/taco, hallzerk

I pray to God that S1mple is smarter than that and that he will stay with Na’Vi as a franchise player. The only team I’d ever be ok with him joining is Liquid, EG, or Mouz. Teams that have an IGL and are actually good. FaZe has been a disaster since Karrigan’s removal and the management is brain dead.

Niko you're not a fucking IGL, do you want to do it for the sake of being an IGL or the sake of playing with friends ? So childish, broky a stand-in is the only member that makes sense with Rain in that whole roaster.
2019-09-29 04:51
Is it just me but everything is NiKo said this, NiKo said that? I know he is the superstar of this team but there should be the line of be a dictator and a team-player. Olof becomes the new Guardian. Broky is supposed to be the new Olof but given he gets all the frags, he is kind of the new rain. Now, rain becomes new Olof? Cold becomes new NiKo given NiKo is IGLing. He couldn't even do that job well. What a mess.

In today's CS no power should be given to players for decision making, this Faze is just NIKO and friends. NIKO goes for IGL, yet he is no IGL + he takes the AWP whenever he feels like yet he is no awper + he doesn't frag at all as an IGL. Olof is not an awper ( though he can learn I suppose). On the other hand Broky is an awper but for some reasons he doesn't play the awp and plays support yet he is topfragging while being new to the team. Cold is like clutching i guess yet he isn't lurking/ baiting like he usually does and rain can't support others because they don't have roles at all. It's worse than a mess; in a team power should be given to the coach and consider whats best for the team not the star player etc. The problem with Faze is that YNK is both NIKO's and Cold's friend; so yhea FAZE should be rebrand as Niko and friends. Fix: Faze => - change coach - NIKO has no power within the team - Get an IGL and bench a player ( NIKO, rain, olof or remove broky) if not: - let broky be the awper so rain plays support - Niko is not allowed ever (besides dust II for spawns) to pick up the awp - Olof plays rifle or lurking - Cold reinvents himself because baiting in today's cs doesn't work.

+1 He's the IGL yet he is no IGL + he doesn't frag + he takes the AWP whenever he feels like it while not being an awper (he doesn't know how to play positions with the awp). For me he's the only player that doesn't make sense in that team.
2019-09-29 06:24
+1 he started this mess by kicking karrigan. They should rebrand the team as niko clan

Sign a young promising awper to let LOLof, their worst player for a year ( even if he looks better lately ), main awp... And NiKo back to his IGL " prowesses ".. This team is hopeless
2019-09-29 13:31
Nice to finally see a pro say it: "(Niko has) to learn to be a little bit more patient and let other people play". RIP FaZe = Niko's team He does what he wants with the team.
