The move by the FaZe Clan of FaZe Karrigan benched was foreseen. This is because the team was going into the place of mediocrity. The last time they won was that at ESL One Belo Horizonte in June. Apart from this win, they were eliminated in 4 international events out of 7 in total.
In September, Nikola “NiKo” Kovac from the FaZe Clan expressed his views about Karrigan being more of a support to the European super team. Though, the FaZe Clan improved by lifting up the title at EPICENTER and getting placed in top four at IEM Chicago. But this was not enough to overcome their European Rival Team, Astralis.
The remaining FaZe Clan includes NiKo, Olof “olofmeister” Kjajber, Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovacs and Havard “rain” Nygard. They are now searching for the fifth member after FaZe Karrigan benched officially. They are finding someone who will be a support just like Karrigan in accordance with the super team.
