kassad: "There is an expiration date on FaZe that's coming very fast for them"
Serbian coach Aleksandar "kassad" Trifunović believes that FaZe need to think now about how in the future they will replace the two oldest players in the squad, Håvard "rain" Nygaard and Finn "karrigan" Andersen. The specialist shared his opinion about the prospects of the European team in the Snake & Banter podcast.
Why is FaZe the best team in the world? Because they have an elite player in every role they play. We have karrigan, a hall of famer, IGL, one of the best we have ever in the game. You can say all you want about his frags, his style and whatever, but every team that he joined became better instantly. Now you have other players like ropz, who got there for free by some... that's another point. They have Twistzz who they picked up as another elite player for an elite role. And rain, obviously a hall of fame player, the best entry fragger that CS:GO had from the beginning till now. All together, like we said, they have the elite players on every single position, they made it work. But there is an expiration date on this lineup that's coming very fast for them. Getting a plan, three-year, five-year plan coming in because they have the core of three very young players, but they have two players with an expiration date on them. That needs to be managed in order to keep FaZe as one of the best teams and keep this rivalry going on.
The current FaZe roster was formed with the addition of Robin "ropz" Kool in early 2022. Subsequently, the team won four big LAN events, including PGL Major Antwerp 2022.
