I dislike this guy he did nothing for FaZe except pay NiKos bar tabs, atleast RobbaN was a professional clapper
2020-11-23 18:29
yanko is fucking useless, as a coach one of your jobs is to tell people when they have retarded ideas, like when niko decided that he was going to become an igl, yanko should have told him to just shoot people in the face and let him worry about finding an igl
2020-11-23 18:56
Why watch? I can answer all of those for him: Hotseat with YNk -Why leave FaZe? = Cus he got kicked -FaZe's biggest problem = niko too much power -Inability to get an IGL = same as the last -Best and worst memory with the team = getting free paycheck and living good life

So dude just shitted on FaZe for not reaching out to them a year ago in order to have a team psychologist, but when they reached out to him a couple of months ago asking if the players were fine and if there was or ever was a need for a team psychologist he just said ''nah, everything's fine''... dude then why are you crying? They did ask and they did care about the team, you just made shitty decisions, own up to them, don't blame them on the org

I thought he was smart but in fact he is not. He blames the FaZe management for not reaching out to him frequently but why did he not do it multiples times instead of just waiting for them ? He clearly didnt say he tried to reach them out (the management). Also he mentioned that they agreed to bring an IGL after AdreN and they thought about pronax, NEO, Snappi... No MSL ? wtf man In fact they all had their head in their ass and could not see anyone's potential. They asked friends of Aleksib & BlameF to see how they were as IGL and decided not to pick them lmao. I feel like these guys are just trying to find excuses and do not assume anything.

In my impression, faze's management (esp for cs) is probably really shit/isn't nearly as good as a lot of top tier orgs. So ynk might not be completely wrong there
