The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster has seen some change of late when the team decided to bench Finn "karrigan" Andersen. Speculation began instantly on who would replace the IGL and AdreN was a prime candidate.
YNk is coming from MIBR as its coach as the team failed to do much together. The team decided to go back to old ways when it traded Jake "Stewie2K" Yip for Epitacio "TACO" de Melo and Wilton "zews" Prado. That left YNk on the outside looking in.
He was reportedly interested in FaZe Clan back in the summer when he made his transition to coaching, but decided to take the MIBR job.
