FaZe part ways with YNk
The cooperation between the Serbian coach and the American organization has come to an end.
"I feel that the best way to move forward is for the team and myself to part ways and, with NiKo going to G2, give the players and the organization the opportunity to get a new coach and IGL who can work on taking the team forward", the 28-year-old tactician explained in his Twitlonger.
Becoming the coach of FaZe in January of 2019, YNk was a part of the organization's tumultuous period, as they trialed Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev and Filip "NEO" Kubski while looking for their fifth, before adding Marcelo "coldzera" David and Helvijs "broky" Saukants at the end of the year. During his tenure, FaZe managed to win BLAST Pro Series Miami and Copenhagen, as well as lift the ELEAGUE Invitational trophy.
"For a while now the team has been struggling with some recurring issues in and out of the game which I've done my best to try and amend but unfortunately without much success", YNk wrote in his statement, adding that he still has love for the game and the coaching profession, but plans to "take a break from coaching until the end of the year".
