jks: I feel pressure as a stand-in in FaZe as it's one of the IEM Katowice 2022 favorites

Australian player Justin "jks" Savage, who will be standing in for FaZe at IEM Katowice 2022, feels that his team's status as one of the favorites of the tournament puts an additional responsibility on him. Answering a question from a CSGO.com journalist during the press conference ahead of the Play-In stage, he assured that he would do everything possible to help the European roster stay at the prestigious event as long as possible.

I want to prove myself at IEM Katowice 2022, which will help me find a new team faster, but even more I want to help the guys get as far as possible in the tournament. I feel pressure as a stand-in in FaZe as it's one of the IEM Katowice 2022 favorites, which should go far in the championship. In terms of finding a new team, I'm not so worried, because everyone more or less understands what they can expect from me on the server.

jks also spoke about the process of finding a new team after Complexity put him on the transfer list in October 2021.

Some teams have contacted me, but I haven't received a good offer yet. The situation is difficult, so now I just have to wait for the right option. At the moment, most of the tier-1 squads are completed for 2022. It was possible to go home to Australia and join some local team, but that's a risky option. I decided to stay in Europe. I've been in Denmark for the past months with my girlfriend and basically just watched CS.

According to the previously published information, Savage will stay with FaZe at IEM Katowice 2022 until at least February 19, when Robin "ropz" Kool is expected to return from self-isolation. The European team will start the Play-In stage with a match against Sprout, which will take place today, February 15, at 14:15 MSK.
